    Hi there! I'm an LPN working on a medical floor for 3.5 years but soon to be a GN next Thursday yay! Anyway, our floor has 72 beds and we have repeating Dx that we always get. The big ones are Pneumonia, CHF, GI Bleed, MI (or r/o MI), and CVA. It has to depend on your demographic too... I live north of Orlando, FL which is retirement heaven so most of our pt's are 65+. The best thing to do Is to be familiar with your hospitals protocols for each of those "repeating" diagnosis. That will help u anticipate what you say to family and the pt. Good luck and congrats on your new job!
