i think it best for me to stop w/the duck jokes before i get kicked off this board.
yet i do maintain to go w/your pt's hallucinations.
one time i was caring for a lady that had ca w/mets to her brain.
i heard her frantically crying out.
i ran to her room and she was crying her cat got away and was wildly pointing her finger in the hallway, "there she is, there she is!"
i immediately said she went in THAT room where i knew this particular room had a collection of beanie babies in it...i took the kitty beanie baby and gave it to my pt.
you could see the relief in her face as she gently placed it next to her, scolded the kitty for running away and couldn't thank me enough. phew.
doesn't always work out that well.
anyway, she peacefully passed that noc, holding her kitty.
i don't care what they teach you in school. there's a certain population of pts that you just cannot reorient to reality.
