Tomorrow is my first day of clinical at the hospital. I'm really excited and also really nervous!
Does anyone have any advice about giving baths for the first time? Or does anyone have advice for the first day of clinical in general? I'm so nervous about giving this bath. Are we supposed to ask the patient if he/she wants us to wash their perineal area or if they want to do it themselves? If so, how should I phrase that? I'm going to be using bed bath wipes instead of a washcloth and basin. I'd appreciate any advice or suggestion! Thank you!!
