So, last night I get report from a patient in the Unit who was in ETOH protocol. This was the patient's 3rd day withdrawing!!! When I got report from this XY Nurse, she told me that the patient was scoring pretty high. I was surprised because we usually send them to the unit when they score over 12. Anyhow, she tells me a little bit about the patient and says to me "ugh he fell at home due to a seizure and that's why you will see all that nasty stuff on his face". I was like, excuse me? and she was like " well yeah, all that dried blood on his face." I just stayed quiet and continue on with report. When I received the patient, he looked like a total hot mess. Yes, I know he is an alcoholic, but we are not here to judge. I offered a bedbath , ( since he was on seizures precautions/ and on bedrest). We cleaned all the blood off his face. Patients need to have dignity, like every human deserves to have! I do not mean to be so sensitive, BUT WE NURSES , came into the profession to help and be compassionate, or at least be professional in the way we communicate about our patients with other colleagues. Anyways, It felt good, I just love being a Nurse!
