One more addendum to charting. There are some things that a patient says that I quote directly and put in quotation marks. The things I do this with are mainly the nasty, vulgar words that a patient is using that shows examples of how poorly the patient is complying. Yep, I've even put the "f-bomb" in quotes if appropriate. I just state the facts... Just like Joe Friday from Dragnet!

More wisdom. This is from our hospital educator.

Don't be afraid to cry in front of a deceased pts family. (I mean tears not out right sobbing).

A nursing student was helping to wash a pt which was near EOL. He was rolled onto his side and the nurse had to leave to get another towel leaving the student to gently ease the pt back onto his back. He had died while she was holding him. They called the wife in (who was just outside the door) the student was upset with the passing, but then became embarrassed as she was more tearful then the wife (the wife expected the passing). It took a lot of convincing to get the student to realize that we all cry, just some of us make it to the toilets before we let go.
