Well I finished my paper. It's only 2 1/2 pages, but I have too many other assignments that I need to be working on so hopefully the length will suffice.

So what's everyone else working on?

That length will be fine. I think you have a good topic that will suit itself pretty well to a shorter length. Of course, I thought that about mine and found I could have gotten another 4 pages so, who knows.

I just finished reading ch's. 10 and 11. 11 is a mirror chapter of the one in Health Assessment that beats us over the head with the nursing process.

Good to know. So now I need to get started on chs 10 and 11 once we get our window unit working. (Our AC died yesterday and we can't get it repaired until tomorrow.)

Ooh, that sucks. At least it's not terribly hot out right now (still miserable anyway I'm sure).

Yep, it's still too hot during the day. So have you viewed the head-to-toe assessment video?

Not yet. If I get a slow period I may. More focused on getting the bed/bath/hand washing stuff down. It's not hard, but I don't want to fail it because one of my corners wasn't mitered or because I forgot to put the side rail up.

How are you studying for that? And please don't bring up the subject of mitering the corners.

Going through the book mostly. Just picking up generalities. Most of it is pretty self-explanatory like cleaning the eye and other assorted areas. I'm trying to remember the few specifics that there are, such as the different sheets and when and where they're placed on the bed. A bed maker I am not.

So do we wash our hands first or introduce ourselves first? And do we really need to change gloves everytime we change the water in real life?

I think we wash hands first, then introduce our selves, then make things incredibly awkward by asking the manikin if it wants to be bathed by students.

My first thought on the gloves is yeah, just because they're probably considered dirty. I think that's why Dr. **** was saying to just grab like 3 pairs or whatever and put them on layered so when you need to change them you can just pull off the top layer.
