I work on an EDU and do NOT recommend it for new grads. Get med surg experience! You will be doing IVs, NGs, watching labs like a hawk etc on top of behaviors. Not for the faint of heart. And it is not all anorexia/bulemia anymore. There is ARFID, orthorexia, binge eating, night eating and unspecified. And a boat ton of sub abuse to go along with it! Message me if you want more info.
I want to add rhat in any given week I am having at least one patient on telemetry, doing numerous EKGs, tons of BGL (we watch for lows!), Lots of edema, numerous IVs for lytes, fluids, we do Ortho BPs 2x/day and are hard core about correction, we will restrain patients for nutrition. We will drop and pull supplement. Lots of legal stuff-conserved, meds against will, feed against will. Big psych issues are borderline personality disorder, bipolar, schizophrenia, OCD, autism...what don't we see! Someone mentioned about adolescents....we see it...but it's the 40 year old ED pt that worries us the most. There are really only 2 units in the country try that take the acuity level as high as this. Lots cut off bmi at some level and are picky about labs because refeeding is not joke.
