It's the first of the month; time to share my day with you!
I work every Monday, so I was on the road at 6:35. When I got to work, the night nurse was busy filling out paperwork because someone had fallen about 30 minutes earlier. Falls are a big deal, even if the person is not injured. If the fall is not witnessed, we have to do vitals and neuro checks every 15 minutes for an hour, every 30 minutes for 2 hours, every hour for 4 hours, then every 8 hours for 3 days. This ensures that any head injury would be noticed. There are also lots of forms to be filled out. Thankfully this fall didn't cause any injury except a small laceration.
It was a busy day, and we had an admission late in the afternoon. The person admitted had an unusual name. Her name itself isn't so unusual, but she married someone who has the same last name as her first name. She has now lived for about 50 years with the same first and last name!
Because of the admission, I got out late, leaving close to 4pm.
Two Timin' Pasta Bake for supper.
After supper we had a church meeting.
It was a busy day, but a good one!
