I would like to preface by thanking all of you who responded to my previous queries. I sincerely appreciate the beneficial information you provided.
More questions, if you don't mind!
For the skills: Ambulating w/Gait Belt and Bed to WC Transfer, the step that follows "applying gait belt" states:
"Before assisting to stand, provides instructions to enable client to assist in standing including pre-arranged signal to alert Client to begin standing."
My question is, what do I state specifically other than advising "on the count of three, I will assist you to stand"? Is there something else I should advise the Client before positioning myself and ultimately transferring/ambulating them? Also, when assisting with transfers/ambulation, do most of you usually place your feet/knees directly in front of the client's?
Also, when performing denture care/mouth care, is it permissable to place the toothbrush/denture on a clean towel (clean technique) before rinsing them/putting away in basin? Denture care seems to be tricky because at one time, you may end up with the dentures, toothbrush, paste, and cup in your hands at once!!
Thanks again, sorry for the verbosity of this message!
