Flu shots are going to be offered at San Jac on the 22nd and 23rd of September apparently. 25 dollars, first come first serve.

The 22nd won't work for any of us since the time is from 8-11 am, but the 23rd is from 1-3 pm, so that's definitely more convenient. Good if you're willing to wait and unsure of Walgreens (I wouldn't be unsure of Walgreens, they have nurse practitioners according to the commercial I watched earlier).

Please excuse this post if you guys knew this via e-mail or by just being more observant than me : p

I got my flu shot about 4 hours ago. I will let y'all know if I start feeling sick. I sure hope that is not the case!

Barb, where did you go for your flu shot?

Don't forget to trim your nails for tomorrow's performance.

I went to my PCP, Dr. Carrie Burns, in Baytown.

I am determine to finish my math TONIGHT. I cannot believe we have to do so many of the exact kind of problems. I am starting Chapter 15....finally!

I haven't even started. I feel lazy now : /

So I'm watching the video on MNL about making the bed, and it's laughably bad. A few times the "nurse" (I dunno, it looks more like a UAP) turns her back with the side rails down. I kept encouraging the patient to take a dive when she wasn't looking.

Anyway, is there a way to differentiate the top and bottom sheet from the draw sheet? I kept getting told from people many different things, and Miss ********* was busy everytime I tried to ask. Got me all freaked out that I'll be trying to use a top sheet as a draw sheet!

Oh, well that's good to know. I don't trust my peers when it comes to sheet making. Especially when those peers are dudes. We don't have a freaking clue when it comes to making beds or sheets.

I'm not embarrassed at all to admit this either.

The top and bottom sheet are the same. Just make sure the rough edges are down on the bottom sheet and up on the top sheet.

Don't forget to knock before entering, change your gloves after cleaning the booty, don't let the sheets or pillow touch you, don't let the clean pillow case touch the soiled sheets or dirty pillow case touch the clean sheets....

Anything else?

Don't have a panic attack or they'll fail you for that too : p

So if you can't transfer accountability to a UAP and a student nurse is unlicensed, then the student nurse who forgot to put the call button on the bed is only responsible and not accountable.

Oh, and that reminds me...don't forget to put the call button on the bed

I wish they'd use something with the call button. Placing an invisible thingamajig on the bed is...ridiculous at best. At worst you forget about the invisible thing.

I'm already thinking about how I'm going to relax tomorrow. Skills check-offs are so....I don't want to say overrated because we need these skills. Maybe blown out of proportion. Definitely not earth shattering if we know how to make a bed.

My experience with skills testing is, have fun with it. They can't fail you for laughing. And if they can, then I suppose I'm going to fail tomorrow : D

Surprisingly some of the beds have real call buttons so don't forget to check.

I'm just going to focus on safety, hygiene and the basic steps.

See you tomorrow
