Mattsmom and All:
Thanks to Hoolihan and her indispensable brain, (hers works better on a regular basis than mine does!), per her suggestion, I am putting together a video demonstrating and describing foot care techniques on REAL FEET!!
My daughter will be helping me do this the first week of March--I am thinking that I'll include a brochure with the video..daughter, Kristin, can help me with that, too. She has had some experience with this type of thing. (Her brain works better than mine, too-thank goodness!)...I admit I'm kinda ignorant when it comes to producing and promoting this type of material. I am not certain if going into the particulars of this is appropriate for this Board.
So, I'll say that it will be available to any nurse who would be interested in it--perhaps I can offer it over Hoolihan's web site Nevertheless, it will be available by the middle of March of this year.
Let me know what you think of this idea. And, PLEASE, any and all suggestions regarding content of video and/or brochure will be most welcome!
Wonderful! I was thinking about you all day at work yesterday. I LOOOOVE feet. No it is not a fettish. But ya know I had been thinking just last week, "I just what to take care of my patients feet." There is a hospital here that has a nurse doing this in a clinic.
Foot care is such a neglected and imortant thing. And for some reason nurses don't do this. Or at least not a good job. For some reason!? Of course it is time. We are too bussy with the pills and IVs etc. That is one thing I loved about working nights as I sometimes had time to treat feet. I would start with a foot bath, actually washing with a little friction then a soak followed by what most would consider a long massage with a softening loation of my own..
Feet with very deep cracks that nothing seemed to change I did with this, one treatment was miraculous.
Two or more well....And as you know the effects last.. I have found it is the best way to connect with patients. You touch their soul. Honest no pun here.
Anyway I was thinking about you and started getting a thousands questions and wondered if you would answer. Please keep in touch and let me know when and how we will beable to see the video. I will gladly pay of course. Feel free to PM me.
