    Why I should become a nurse.

    Is it illegal to place a towel over a patient's face?

    Yeah...unless you are planning on treating your patient to a hot towel facial I would just stick to the shield or mask.

    Report, assessments & reviewing vital signs (followed by notifying MD of any abnormal findings if unable to fix issue myself), med pass, and lastly charting. It helped me to have a routine, although, especially on a busy ortho floor it will be di...
