Med Surg I -A
Well we are starting Med-Surg next week after our Nutrition and Complimentary/Alternative Therapy test( i.e the crap we covered today in class) is over.
Its not Med-Surg 1 officially until next semester so it's kinda like Med-Surg 1-A.
The 21st we are going down to the OR!! I am so excited. We were told that since most of our patients at this point in time for "learning" purposes will be post-op we might as well see what goes on inside the OR. They are going to set up a mock abdominal surgery so we can learn the difference between the scrubs,where to walk within the sterile field, how to gown the doctor, how to sterilize instruments, do counts, etc. A fun little field trip to break up the lectures and boring as crap LTC clinical!
So Med-Surg 1-A contains: Diseases of the Urinary System, Diseases of Integumentary System,Immune Disorders, Care of the PT with HIV/AIDS, and Care of the Pt with Cancer.
