dysphagia and doctors

Today I did a new Pt admission at the SAR unit. She has dysphagia and is having difficulty chewing and swallowing. I did the Pt interview and it’s definitely a good learning experience. Again, I forgot to ask certain questions that may be of importance…but I did observe of any signs of swelling and/or edema in her legs. This week was pretty blah compared to my previous weeks; just a lot of minor issues such as the doctor interrupting me on numerous occasions while I was with the Pt. If you’re going to interrupt, at least say “excuse me.” Lol I don’t know, I just think it’s rude. My career is as important as yours, so I don’t need any seniority played on me right now. Other than that, I’m just ready for this weekend to start and for me to relax a little. It’s Labor Day weekend, so I’m getting a day off on Monday! I’m trying to finish most of my work today, so I don’t have to worry.
