just for clarification. regarding LTC facilities. ok, lets say you have a patient having SOB you check the O2 sat. and it's 84% you give 2 liters of o2 via NC and it's about 86% now, pt. is a code, patient is a&o X3 how would you go about sending this patient out? would you first get an order from the MD first to send the patient out, or do you use your nursing judgement and send out patient then call the doctor after the ambulance picks him up? do you call 911 at all? curious to see your answers.
