Educate yourself on pathophysiology of said diagnosis. That is an incredibly painful ailment. It sucks even more when the people who supposed to care and advocate for them is calling them a addict and not believing their pain. Its YOUR job to treat them. If their pain isn't being relieved you will need to assess the degree of sickle of the RBC to prevent vascular stasis which in turn causes this.
I can honestly say the drs at my job I have no faith or trust in. Pulmonologist rounding ( 2 seconds)with no stethoscope, then magically have a full progress note. Or they do their assessments at the door. Or they put in their notes "spoke to RN" and I'm like when??
Gosh totally needed that. Vent over.
