    I think this is my new favorite thread.
    I've worked in 2 LTC facilities. At the first I was on the subacute/rehab hall and I got used to a thorough report with dx, changes, vitals, etc. on each resident. At the second I was prn and wasn't on one hall often enough to get to know people, but the regular nurses were used to going down the list and saying, "he's fine, he's fine, she refused her shower, she's fine, she's fine, he didn't sleep, he's fine, he's fine..." I started going in 1/2 hour early to review my assignment so I'd at least know who was a tube feed, who was on O2, etc. before starting the med pass!

    Last I checked, complete heart block is a VERY big deal.
