Famiy Medicine Residents Shadowing HH Nurse

  1. 0 Earlier 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.

    Maybe chose someone who was really noncompliant and landed in the hospital and has stayed well for a significant amount of time based on your 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...

    How about a patient that needs diabetic teaching, or one that gets frequent PT/INR testing along with adjustments in Coumadin dosages?
