    Definition of Deconditioning??

    hello all, I just wanted to simply ask what does deconditioning mean?? For instance, "this patient is deconditioning status post respiratory failure". I'm guess deterioration of health?? Just making sure! Thank you :)

    What does a rehab nurse do?? New hired rehab RN here.

    Hi Maura, That is fabulous, thank you again. I believe your unit is more critical than the patients I will be taking care of. I don't think any of them come from ICU at all. They will be coming from the ortho and medsurg units, and I wont' be dealing with many IV's either, regretably. I would love to learn more skills, but I'm so greatful to find an RN job, even if there aren't as many hands-on skills. I am sure there will be other skills I can work with. I don't think I'll be going to a FIM class.. I would love to hear more about what you know and do! Thank you so much!

    Does BMP stand for basic metabolic profile which includes lab results for glucose, BUN, electrolytes, etc...?

    What does a rehab nurse do?? New hired rehab RN here.

    Thanks Maura! I will definitely review those things that you mentioned. I'll be making myself a study guide based on some of what you mentioned. I'm really nervous! Yes, someone else mentioned that knee and hip replacements are more frequent in the fall/winter.
  7. Hi nurses, I'm a new grad that got hired as a new Rehab RN at a hospital. The unit seems to get a lot of ortho and stroke patients with many physical and occupational therapists involved. I don't know much about rehab nursing. I originally wanted medsurg, but the job market is still pretty bad. What are some of the things rehab nurses do?? What labs and drugs should I review before starting work, and what skills?? Is there a lot of lifting involved ? I heard the nurses need to know FIM assessments, what is that? I'd appreciate any information!!!
