    I'm pretty good with the psych patients/demented patients. I have A LOT of patience.

    I had a patient who fell from a horse whose brain seemed to "reset" every 2 to 3 minutes. I finally just wrote her a note about what happened, put it on a clipboard, and put the clipboard in her hands. When I saw the "where am I?" panic set in, I would direct her to the clipboard. It was a challenge getting her to complete her CT scan, she would reset just as we were getting ready to scan her and we would have to explain over and over why she needed a CT! Lol
    I did that once with a dementia patient who kept asking where she was and what was going on.

    Mark Boswell's videos were helpful. I also used the BCEN practice tests book.

    You will find that as you prepare to give the meds in real life and look them up, you will start remembering them.

    I started at around $25 as a new grad with a bachelors. Not sure where you live but that sounds like good pay for nursing home work in my area for a person with 1-2 years experience.

    I think you did the right thing. People like that usually don't change.

    Our DV screening questions are part of a set of secondary triage questions which are asked by the primary nurse once a patient gets back to the room. There is an option to click "visitors in room" or "cognitively impaired" as an option for the direct screening questions.

    How do you make changes in your work environment when management has a reputation for being resistant to staff input?

    How do you help them see the light and listen to you?

    What has worked for you? Any personal examples?

    Prescriptions for meds that are taken at home (unless it is a completely new med) should be written by the PCP. It is so important for patients to follow up with their PCP and get scripts from them. The dependence on the acute care hospital is what drives up healthcare costs.

    She does not want to write medications for her patients because they will call her for refills and she does not want that. She mentioned this in the beginning when I first started working here.
    That is understandable. People need to follow up with their PCP.

    Right but she refuses to see patients who are post transplant. A few of HER patients have needed medications. One patient flew here from out of town and forgot his insulin. She would not write orders for one day's worth of insulin so I had to enter and have the doctor sign off.
    That patient should have called his PCP.

    Diminished my friend, diminished.

    The less loud side has diminished lung sounds. Which is possible in cases of pleural effusion.
