I've been working in med surge for 1 year already and I still feel like a new grad. Can anyone or everyone pls share their experience with what are the IMPORTANT ASSESSMENTS that SHOULD BE MADE, things to look out for, and the NEED TO KNOW FACTS about handling THESE different types of admitted Med surge patients?
- GI Bleeds
- Chest Tubes
- abdominal post op
- hip fractures and surgery post op
- dialysis, renal failure
and if anyone else has any other patient to add.. PLS DO!
it would be a great help. i just feel i just work to work but never really understand.
thanks SOOOO MUCH!
