When I have a patient who is unwilling to get a bed bath, what do can I suggest instead?
Remember, the patients can always deny care. I would highly suggest to talk to the patient and tell them that they will feel better after a wipe down. Understandably, many patients do not like their peri area cleaned by other people. In this case, if the patient is able to do a lot of the bath by themselves, I would let them do it, but be watching to make sure it is done properly! If the patient is clearly agitated by something going on in the moment, I would suggest coming back a little later to see if their attitude or feeling towards the bath has changed!
How can you quickly multiply by 9?
To quickly multiply by 9, you can use your hands! Hold your hands out in front of you with all your fingers up. If you have a problem like 9 x 5, you will put your fifth finger down (which would be your thumb on your left hand) and you will then see 4 fingers left on your left hand and 5 remaining fingers up on your right hand. Therefore, the answer is 45!
When someone breaks a bone and has an open wound, how does the body heal the impacted site?
The body has a lot of complex, interconnected systems. First the body would clear the impacted area of debris with help from the white blood cells circulating in the blood. Someone would physically have to put the bone back into place, but even before this happens, the body already realizes that help is needed. After the white blood cells circulate at higher rates in that area, the body will begin to close up the skin by creating fibrin that will help form new skin. The cells then regenerate millions of times to get that skin back to normal. Depending upon how deep the impaction is, thicker skin may form, called scar tissue.
