I was recently floated to a rehab unit, for our patients with hip fractures and knee replacement, post surgery do you turn them on the affected side or unaffected side when they need the bedpan? I had learned it as turn on affected side to avoid dislocation but today a resident told me she was told she should be turned on unaffected side by another nurse. Which is the proper way and what is the rationale? I am on nights so I do not get to speak to the rehab team. Thanks for your input!
