Im new to this website, and Private Duty Nursing, coming from ICU nursing, but excited about the switch as I am returning to school online and needed the flexibility to make that happen. What I am wondering is what do other PDN's do while your patient is sleeping
? I have a 9 month old baby on a trach and G-tube which keeps me busy , but while my patient is sleeping what is "acceptable" or allowable for me to do after cleaning and charting have been completed? I dont want to appear bored, nor do I want to seem like I am not paying attention to the child if I am reading or online doing classwork or something...any advise would be greatly appreciated!!!
