Famiy Medicine Residents Shadowing HH Nurse
- 0Jun 26, '13 by KittyLovinRNEarlier this week I was asked if I would be okay having a family medicine resident follow me for half a day next week so that they can see what services are available for their patients, what home does/is, etc.
My question would be which patients to choose?!
I was thinking a wound and probably CHF but does anybody have any other suggestions? I want them to have a decent experience and a good idea of what it is the nurses do for their patients to encourage them to order services.

Choose a really nice house and a really awful one, just so they understand what it's like for a HHN! I think your choice of CHF and wound is probably a good choice. Maybe someone with labs, new ostomy? Just throwing ideas out as they pop into my head...
