I have gotten reprimanded INTENSELY for writing a nursing note in regard to a patients fall.
Of course all you LTC nurses out there have been in this scenario.....you are walking into a patients room and wa la...there they are ON THE FLOOR. Could I ask all of you to answer me this? HOW do you start your Nursing note.......PATIENT FOUND ON FLOOR WHEN THIS NURSE ENTERED ROOM,, PATIENT OBSERVED ON FLOOR WHEN ENTERING ROOM, PATIENT SITTING OR LYING ON FLOOR WHEN THIS NURSE ENTERED ROOM? I am curious to see what the answers would be .....thanks.....I will let you know what I put after I get my answers.!!!!
