  1. my mother had a colonoscopy and afterwards her doctor told her she needed surgery. she told my mom she should 1st get medically cleared by a doctor affiliated with that hospital she was going to have the surgery. so my mom found a doctor affiliated with that hospital and got checked up. she was fine to have the surgery. that doctor faxed over everything to the surgeon's office. the surgeon called my mom and said she got the forms and she needs to just make an appointment with her receptionist in which she did. the receptionist called my mom regarding the appointment for her surgery. she got a letter today stating the time and what she needs to do. in that letter it said she needs to be medically cleared by the clinic in that hospital. the doctors office is closed right now so i will call tomorrow to ask, but i wanted to know now, if she needs TWO clearances. she got the 1st clearance about 3 weeks ago. is it just a mistake?
  2. I'm a nursing student and we need to do a teaching plan during our clinicals. I decided to do a colostomy care since I had 2 patients with colostomy and it was very interesting. it would be great if i had the actual simulator body to show the stoma but can't afford it as well as the bag. where can i get great info?
  3. i'm doing a nursing care plan. the diagnosis is disturbed body image related to biophysical presence of stoma. for the symptoms i put that the patient turned the head away while doing abdominal assessment, liked to be covered at all times, refused to answer questions regarding the surgery. as for the self care agencies and deficits, what do i put here that will go along with the diagnosis?

  5. never asked YOU to do my homework for me. I just wanted some ideas. did I ask YOU to look up information for me and do the presentation? NO. this is a forum where we can help each other out. I'm sure YOU needed some help when you were ONCE A STUDENT. some people are so ignorant.

  7. i'm taking gi/gu right now and we need to do a teaching plan related to the course. it has to be 5-10minutes and it will be during clinicals in front of our clinical members (~8 people including the professor). what are some ideas i can do that would be very interesting and not boring? like if it's on diabetes, it has to be one part of diabetes, like the food or what causes it.
  8. i have to fill out a shift assessment page as a nursing student. what do i write for activity if my patient is paralyzed from the waist down? she goes from chair to bed using a ez lift machine.
  9. I am in my 2nd level at nursing school. It was my 1st day at my med-surg clinicals yesterday. This is my second clinical, but I get nervous every time I go to the hospital. I am very shy around new people and tense up extremely during the pre and post conference when we share about our patients. even if i have to share with only 9 people including my clinical professor, i get so nervous. we had to give a brief description about our patients yesterday during post conference, i got so nervous, i stuttered so much. can i still be a great nurse even if i'm shy and introverted? how do i stop dreading post-conference?

  11. i'm in my level 2 right now, for gi/gu class. i start clinicals tomorrow at a med-surg floor. although this will be my 2nd clinical, i'm quite nervous. what are some tips for med-surg floors?
  12. I started level 2 and I am taking Gi/Gu right now. My professor said to practice a lot of Nclex questions. I was wondering what are some study tips to do well for this class? I also start clinicals next week. I have a hard time understanding things by just reading. I believe I am more of a visual learner. Can any nurses help me please?
  13. My mom is having a surgery at the end of this month called robotic rectoplexy. Her doctor said he will probably stay 5 days in the hospital after the surgery. She didn't tell me all the details. I was wondering if anyone can help me. I read online that she might have a foley for a few days. Is there anything I can do for my mom? My mom won't have a shower for 5 days, is there something I can do for her? like what kind of wipes can i buy her to help her clean up and feel refreshed without worrying about any bacteria or infection? i read she might be on a clear liquid diet. i'm sure the hospital will provide her, but is there something i can make at home that can be considered clear liquid?
