6. Trust your instinct Nurses have an uncanny way of using their gut to determine if/when something is not quite right with their patients. This, in my view, is what makes a nurse a bit special. Nurses are able to achieve this because they are the ones who spend the most amount of time with the patient and offer hands-on care, so, they can tell when a characteristic is out of the ordinary, even without medical evidence at first. So if youre a nurse like me and you get that feeling in the pit of your stomach, that something isnt quite right, then it probably isnt.
The nurse shall have patient record an exercise log. (accountability). The patient should have a list of goals and reward for those goals related to reducing overall caloric intake. (will increase compliance).
5. Both skillfully ask questions. Detectives and Nurses get to the heart of a matter without putting somebody on their guard or making them unnecessarily uncomfortable.
2. The ears If a patient is unstable, they will make abnormal sounds. Sounds that indicate something is wrong with, perhaps, their airways such as wheezing, gurgling, stridor and so on. At other times, there are no sounds at all, which would also indicate a complete airway obstruction in some cases. So, using your ears, you will be able to ascertain whether your patient is making the right kind of sounds. If it is not breathing, they may cry/scream, or try to tell you something. Gather the facts with your ears and from then on, you will be able to act accordingly.
