Sory for my lack of clarity.
I have two assistants. My main one was on vacation and my backup
went with me to the patients house.
She had several loose teeth and I was afraid of aspiration so I
wrote a Rx for an antibiotic and made an appointment to come back
in a few days.
In the meantime, the main assistant came home. So the next time I saw
the patient, the second assistant was with me. I hadn't paid attention
and neither had the ladies husband.
But the patient o looked up and said .... "You're not the same one "
Unfortunately in most nursing homes they are treated as if they
didn't understand anything.
Don't be cruel ... assume they do ... This is what I bring up at
continuing education classes. that I do for my nursing homes.
