Tomorrow, it will be my first day/time interacting with a patient. I will go in and meet him/her. Then I will begin the interview process. Asking about med history, subjective, objective, etc etc.. You know what I mean right?
Anyways, I'm looking for any kind of advice or hints to do this right. If the patient is asleep is it ok to wake him/her up? I was told yes.
Another thing, Should I gather all my informartion from the Kardex/chart first and then interview or interview first then get the secondary information afterwards. I was thinking of getting/kardex/chart first, that way the patient can tell me anything I have missing.
THANKS for all the help in advance
