Post operative care

This rotation I am at the orthopaedic department in one of the Hamilton hospital. Boy i tell ya...this rotation is really challenging and nervewrecking!
My second day was really crazy..I was given a bone cancer diagnosed patient with just 7 days post-operative of her total right elbow replacement.
I have zero experience in taking care of post-op care patients...only books knowledge!

I was giving her a.m. care that morning..and was going to move to her left side to wash her back...a loud crack was heard! Omigosh..she had a fractured and i was freak out and just don't know what else to do. I called for help and i tell ya.. that day it was a hell of experience!

On top of everything, i have to give my patient medication, and taking blood pressure on her fractured arm... how challenging was that?

The whole day i felt so lousy and Thank God for my lecturer... she helped me alot!

I seriously don't like surgical floors as they are so fragile!

I prefer mental health patients better...maybe because i am one of them too..hahaahahah
Shall see which area i will be going into... :)

Safe web surfing requires an good program capable of protection against urgently growing threats like trojans, malware, worms, dialers, hijackers, spyware and keyloggers. Spyware like trojans and backdoors provide strangers with access to your PC. Once a
backdoor is installed, an attacker can take full control of your computer. A trojan is best described as a piece of software pretending to be something it is
not - they often contain backdoors, and usually arrive as email attachments.

FilePrompt.com is a useful site that links to dozens of
free anti spyware programs and utilities to download. FilePrompt makes it easy to find the best free
software programs at no charge.
