Another long day bites the dust.

I want a day off tomorrow, so I decided to work all fourteen hours today. Thankfully, DGN cut it to twelve and a half but it was still a busy one.

My paperwork's still not done, but I needed a good day after Friday and I performed. Getting to know new patients, taking care of safety and needs, etc. Sounds boring, but it's not.

The main issue today involved dealing with someone registered blind. Lovely soul, this patient. Although I've never dealt with a blind patient before, which left me sorta lost for a second until I just used my common sense. Point everything out, ask them if they need help with anything, be polite and friendly. There's no secret formula. I was proud, though, of the thinking on my feet I did.

Ontop of that, I made up some IV Frusemide on my own with only a few problems. This is one of the things I'm not legally allowed to do, but it's good practice and I'm happy to sort it.

So real issues coming out of today, other than good ones. I'm exhausted, though, so I'll post more when I'm not. Maybe on my lovely day off. MWahaha.

The secret is always asking...so long as it's not 'does it take sugar' ;) BG
