I am supposed to take a PBDS for my new job next week. I am going to be on the Neuro Acute Care/Med Surg floor. Does anyone have any tips or study guides they can send me? I've never even heard of it.
Stick to a head to toe assessment, only do what is in your scope of practice, know when an emergency arises what to do, start CPR, etc and when to call the doctor. I went through it for my hospital orientation, it's very detailed but they are mainly trying to assess how much orientation you should recieve on your floor, it's different for everyone. Don't try to get fancy, just stick to the basics and you'll do fine
