Just a quick update on the patient I described in the earlier post. Last night I was the Patient Care Tech - yes, us nurses can do practically anything...lol. As I was taking the first set of vital signs - I noticed that a patient seemed very familiar to me. Turns out it was the one that signed out AMA early Friday morning!
She returned back to the hospital Friday early evening complaining of nausea and dizziness. I didn't mention who I was. I'm glad she came back - obviously she has something medically related going on. Hopefully they'll be able to fix it. She did have a nicotine patch on - so no worries about her needing to go smoke.
I just got done with a nursing skills assessment type fair - I'm tired & I have to be back at work tonight. Hope everyone is having a happy Monday. It's raining here by me - perfect sleeping weather. Sweet dreams!
