Nursing Physical Assessment Checklist
What to do if I have to do a nursing assessment out in my clinical placement and it asks the outcome measurements?
Hmm?: Would ask your instructor or supervisor about this one.
Should: It make sense to have a check list and every pcp should have it.See 1 more doctor answer
I have guillain barre syndrome, I can't walk, stand, roll over, sit up, or pretty much anything physical. Should I go to a nursing home?
See a rehab doctor: It would be a good idea to see a doctor who specializes in rehabilitation medicine. This person could help you determine what type of therapy may help as well as whether you need to be in a nursing home or not.
Does my body still make antibodies if I'm exposed to a cold but don't get symptoms. Hoping to protect nursing 2mth old from brother's cold.?
Yes: Symptoms from a viral infection vary greatly from one person to another. However you would develop an antibody to that virus if infected. Whether you can prevent the child from developing a cold or not is uncertain but do note that a child in the first 3 months of life possessed protective antibodies to many infections and breast feeding may provide added protection as well.
I'm thinking of becoming a nurse I'm taking my prerequisites right now but I don't like biology. Are my nursing classes going to mainly biology?
Core classes: For your nursing requirements you will need your course in biology. But after that you are ok. If you have trouble get a tutor to help you. Biology is really straight forward and most interesting. Just get yourself through and you will be ok. Mostly just memorizing
OK to opt out: In a skilled nursing facility they provide activites to help relieve boredom and to help you engage with other people. Generally you are not required to participate but encouraged. Common activites are bingo, cards, crafts, sing-alongs. .
No: Bras weren't invented until "a few" years ago, if compared with the length of our human history. Babies were breastfed for hundreds of thousands of years before somebody started wearing a bra.
Milk supple is good latch is good but baby isn't interested I'm nursing, gets really fussy when nursing, why could this be? Baby is 2 months old
Is it safe to get immunized more than once? I was already immunized when I was in the military, but don't have the records to show it, and need to have them to enter nursing school.
You shouldn't: Salmonella is a huge risk for infants as this is one of the infections that is very much dependent on how mature your immune system is. As much as I may be with you in enjoying cookie dough, the raw egg is way too risky for salmonella infection which may be nothing for you but could be a quite serious illness for an infant.
Yes: As long as a baby gets enough milk, whether from one breast or both breasts, the baby will be happy. However, if a mom only feeds from one side, the unused side may lose its milk-making ability and dry up; or it may back up with milk, get swollen and perhaps develop mastitis.See 2 more doctor answers
Please ASK: The best thing you can do for you and your baby if you have nursing problems is to ask for help and support! Start with your pediatrician, obgyn, labor nurses and local lactation consultants or laleche league. Many town health departments or wic offices can direct you to resources. Enlist the emotional support of your partner and mother or support person as well. Other breast feeding moms too!See 4 more doctor answers

What if you are in a skilled nursing facility and dr's orders are not being followed but makes in your chart that it was done?
Violation: If you are certain that something is supposed to be done and it's not being done, bring this up to the nurse supervisor. They will supervise whether something is supposed to be done or not. If the problem persists, bring the problem to the patient liaison for investigation. Your job is to make sure that things are being done and your health is being looked after.See 2 more doctor answers
No: The aap recommends exclusive breastfeeding for all babies for 6 months, and that mom's breastfeed their babies until one year, or longer if both mom and baby desire. Breast milk is the best choice for every baby. If you feel that it's time to wean, or you need to wean and can't, please discuss this with your pediatrician.See 1 more doctor answer
Keeps baby close: The nursing pillow was a life-saver for me (especially after my c-sections and I could not hold my baby upright for nursing). I used a "boppy" pillow and it really helped to maintain my baby in a good position that was helpful for successful nursing.See 1 more doctor answer
Level of care needed: A skilled nursing facility describes a center catering to the needs of patients who need a level of care sometimes requiring the skills of a nurse but not that of a hospital. Included are those needing help with body functions, feeding, medications or mobility at various ages. Generally, a treatment plan coordinated with a physician monitored by the nurses is part of the process.See 1 more doctor answer
Yes: SNF = skilled nursing facility. Key word is nursing which means nurses have to be available around the clock. Assisted living facilities don't require presence of nurse at all times. BTW, we mean RN or LPN when referring to nurses. Check out http://www. Diffen. Com/difference/Assisted_Living_vs_Nursing_Home as a starting point.
