Week 7, Day 2…over

Today was a day of assessments.

Started with watching my OT do the KELS on a patient in adult acute who can't leave the unit (hence no CPT), I didn't much like the assessment. The pt decided to pull up her shirt/down her pants to show us fire burns.

I did two groups – very small groups today – one on “Noodle Boosters” and one on Healthy Lifestyle Habits.

Then I went to Dual Diagnosis and brought the patient to the rehab area, did the CPT on the patient.

After lunch I did an eval on a very confused lady who said her dad could hear the sound of a “pea dropping off a dog”….she later changed it to flea. LOL.

I have a HUGE list of patients to do ADMs on, I'm only a little behind on LACLS, and a tiny bit behind on MMSEs and GDS.

Gotta think about groups tomorrow, hmm. Hmmmmmmmmmmmm. Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm.

Went to gym after work….took a “nap” which was mostly me lying there thinking about patients and who needs what in the unit.

I need to try and remember to stop at a Dollar General or something and get some cheap cards. I'm tired of patients asking for them and there not being any. I'm sure they've had cards on and off and they always get destroyed or something, but still. Costco, sell giant things of cheap playing cards, all with different color backs to keep decks separate, to stock up rehab units and stuff.

Wow, this was an almost short post, how is that possible.

Didn't get anything helpful done this afternoon, but tomorrow is a new day with new opportunities, right?
