T&P Q2hr

So here’s today’s rant:

T&P Q2hr, a commonly used term in nursing. We hear it all the time, and yet it seems like we are beginning to ignore this more and more. It might be one of the saddest things to see a patient sitting in their own bodily excretions, and unknowingly not being able to tell anyone; and yet people don’t seem to be checking patients bottoms. Break down can occur at such an accelerated rate, and the importance of turning and applying some sort of barrier or antifungal cream is key.

The one thing nurses and students should remember is that the reason you are in nursing is to be your patients advocate. Turning is just as important as giving the patients their medications.

Just remember that their is a reason that you are getting/got into nursing. Always remember.
