    I have learned the wonders of peppermint oil. We can call our pharmacy and they will tube it up. I pour small amounts into medicine cups and place in room, outside door, in hallway- as out of sight as possible. It smells fresh and works especially well with c diff and high output ostomies bring emptied frequently.

    I just finished my first year and the things that help me most is after loading my pockets with alcohol swabs, flushes, pill splitter and white board marker and getting report is to review the charts, make a brain sheet of meds by time and check boxes next to my "to-do's that also includes finger sticks by time with a space to write the sugar and how much insulin they get next to it, its a great reminder of my to-do;s and i add to it throughout the shift as new orders get written, and i admit is feels great to see things checked off throughout the shift. I use similar strategies on my patient's white boards so they see their plan written out and things checked off, or the list updated. It helps me feel organized, and the patient informed. Once I have my brain sheet, I grab meds and my stethoscope, listen to my patients and do a quick assessment before rounding with the rest of their meds. That gives me a good feel for their status, mental and physical, immediate needs and organize their white boards. Good luck!
