Nurses: territory is their patient. They must find out: Why is he here? What signs and symptoms do I need to watch for to prevent complications from his illness? What goals must he and I meet for him to get better?
Damages: Damages including death, disability, prolonged pain, deformity, or added cost to staying in a hospital are usually capitalized on by the clients lawyers/attorneys.
Patient will display (you choose how) a working knowledge of how to read a food label after nurse demonstrates (you choose method according to patients best way of learning)
3. Both must learn to read peoples faces. Detectives and Nurses watch body language and notice whether it seems natural and agrees with their words. Criminals might be lying to avoid incrimination. Patients might be hiding the truth because of embarrassment, lack of understanding or cultural beliefs. A patient may say hes not in pain, but have facial grimacing.
Although machines have made nursing somewhat easy these days, I reckon we were given all the tools, the machines we need to do a reasonably sound nursing assessment. Our eyes, ears, noses, mouths (okay maybe not so much now) and gut instinct provide us with all the information we need to prevent danger from occurring to our patient. Lets use them. Done enough times, the confidence and skill you gain from practicing with your senses are indispensable. You will feel satisfied and glad and so will your patient!
