1 Prepared to provide One of my patients had a low O2 saturation. I encouraged her

to take deep breaths. I came back and checked again and her

evidence-informed some oxygen. I started with applying 1L of oxygen through
interventions and nasal cannula, and reassessed my patients O2 in 15 minutes.
outcome measures. Her O2 was still low so I applied 2L of oxygen. When I
reassessed this her oxygen was within a safe range.
I answered a call bell and the patient really had to use the
washroom. Her incision site on her left leg was heavily
bleeding. I was going to reinforce the wound before she went
to the bathroom but she really had to go. I thought it was best
to wheel her into the bathroom on the commode rather than
walking so that her leg wouldnt bleed even more than it was.
When taking a patients temperature she wouldnt open her
mouth so I took an axillary temperature instead
2 Establishes and maintains I communicate with the primary nurse of my patient to discuss
therapeutic, caring and
any abnormal vital signs and I ask if they need any help with
culturally safe
relationships through anything. For example, before administering oxygen I check
effective communication. with the primary nurse
When answering a patients call bell, she wanted to know if she
could eat solid foods and wanted a Jell-O and coffee. I checked
the board in her room to see what her diet was and then got
her a Jell-O and coffee. She was very thankful and happy
One of my patients wanted to know when she would be getting
out of bed and have to walk. I told her about physiotherapy
and some of the exercises. By being able to answer my patients
questions it helps my patient trust me.

patients.
I used Aesthetic knowing when caring for a patient who was a
prisoner. I had to disconnect his IV and help him to the
washroom. There were two policemen in the room and the
patient had ankle cuffs, which made the environment a little
intimidating. I was a little scared but I had to make sure that
my views on him being a prisoner didnt affect my care. Once I
got passed that I realized that he was a really nice man.
I used ethical knowing when ambulating a patient and he didnt
want to put shoes on. I told him that it was for his safety and
hospital policy
I used empirical knowing when I put in a Foley catheter. I used
knowledge I learned in lab and knowledge from anatomy to
find the urethra where I inserted the Foley catheter

When I gave medication I made sure that the patient received
their medication on time. For example, my patient had a prn
order of oxycodone every 4 hours. I made sure to keep track of
what time to give my patient this medication. Before
administering this medication, I asked him if he had any pain
and if he wanted to take oxycodone to keep his pain at a
manageable level.
