-get your vitals done, and have them in quickly. Call me right away if something is abnormal. KNOW what is normal/abnormal for vitals.
-check incontinent patients frequently. Remind me to turn patients if I forget.
-Make sure patients have fresh ice/water
-walk all my patients that can walk. This is SO good for them.
-actually bathe people. Don't shortcut it. Be really thorough.
-feel free to call me if you find anything funny on someone's skin/bottom/etc. I usually pop in and look during baths or help with them, but you are my eyes and ears
-Change your beds everyday. Some aides say that they only change them if they "look" dirty. Eww.
-If you don't know how to do something..please ask! Don't just fudge it.
