I work day shift in a SNF with about 75% of my patients being short term.  I've come across many situations where the patients know next to  nothing about their already diagnosed medical conditions. 

Is there a database or something of that nature I could access to print easy to understand information? (I'd have to get my facilities permission first, but they'll be on board if it's legit)

What do others do?  

The system is so broken.  I'm new to day shift and I'm still learning what my role truly is, aside from routine med passes and treatments.  I don't want to over-step but its really bothering me that so many people know little to nothing about what is going on with them.
