Just this week, I had 2 pts with questions about how they could eat better to avoid hospital admissions in the future. I talked about good choices, but then remembered that our charting system, EPIC, has educational handouts that can be printed for pts. I printed out education for them, and documented that I provided it. One pt told me thank you as she read it. The other told me she can’t read big words and would have to ask her grandchild to read it to her. I also remember yet, another pt last week with dietary questions. That discharge was rushed and I felt bad I had to tell her basic info and refer her to her PCP for more information. These tasks are complex. Yet, pts deserve to be provided with good education, because what you eat has a big factor on your health. Bedside nurses like me are already consumed with so many tasks. But I think this education is important.
