This part of your orientation, right? I am hoping this will be a little more concrete, although hearing about pay and benefits is good, right?</p><p>My name is Patricia Auerbach. I am one of the RNs who work with the Paragon Program. I have worked with Walker Home for about 2 years now. I have worked the Battlecreek and Bain Homes. I have also been on call for all the homes.</p><p>The other note you need to know about me and this class is that I am a nurse. And, surprise, surprise, I use nursing language. At any time you dont understand something, PLEASE ASK! We also will be talking about bodies and body functions. I am a nurse and a mother. Not much phases me. I hope I will not offend any of you with my openness.</p><p>The purpose of today's class is to provide you with information about safety giving medication to our residents. There is lots of information today. I hope to not overwhelm you. It is a lot of information. However, the learning process is broken up so if something isnt crystal clear today, you have several other times to make sure you are safe and ask questions.</p><p>I LOVE questions. I am a very interactive person. I dont do well just talking. So you are a definite part of today.</p><p>We will talk about:MedicinesHow to give themDocumentation proving you gave themHow do the CCS nurses fit inHow do doctors fit inCore competencies around medicationCertain skills you need such as:How to take a temperatureHow to take a blood pressureHow to assess painAnd yes there is a test. However it is my goal that you all pass it. The goal here is to be knowledgeable about medications and giving them.</p><p>Bathrooms</p><p>Break</p><p>Any questions yet?There are certain things you need to do in order to be considered safe and competent to give medications to our residents.You need to successfully complete this class with a 75% on the test.You need to complete the medication assignment within 2 weeks of today. That assignment is given to the RN for your home. She or he will review it for completeness and accuracy. If there are any additions needed, she will either talk with you or your manager. This is a learning process. Once the medication assignment is approved, you will shadow another experienced employee during 2-3 medication passes.Then someone will shadow you passing medications.When you, your manager/supervisor and the RN are all confident you know what you are doing, you are done with the process!These are four major health issues that are more common in people with developmental disabilities. They cause illness and can cause death. Our residents are dependent upon us for their health care and safety.</p><p>Aspiration, dehydration and constipation may be fairly invisible until they become serious. Seizures can happen very suddenly and place their at risk.</p><p>Aspiration is inhaling food, fluid, medications or secretions into the lungs. You will see a shortness of breath and low grade fever. </p><p>Constipation is a decrease or no passing of stool. The resident also can have a very difficult time having a bowel movement and/or the feces are hard or dry.The symptoms you see is a decrease or no bowel movements.</p><p>Dehydration is when our residents having a significantly lower body fluid content. This is dangerous to multiple systems. It can come about because many of our residents are dependent upon us for their fluids.</p><p>Seizures take all forms. Another word for this is convulsion. There are multiple effects of seizures not to mention problems with their breathing and/or injuries as a result.Outcomes at CCS are added benefits our residents receive as a result of us being in their lives.</p><p>Nursing Services have the following outcomes. Four of them you will recognize and now understand their importance!</p><p>Aspiration We want our residents to not have any aspiration.Constipation We want our residents to poop regularly and easily.Dehydration This just doesnt happenSeizures these either dont happen or at a level that doesnt compromise their health.</p><p>Skin care their skin is healthy and what we call intact no breaks.</p><p>Preventable ER visits - The six rights in giving medication ensure that the resident receives the right medication in the right dose in the right route at the right time and that medication is documented correctly as given.It is important that you give the right medication. It needs to be the residents medication. Check at least three times. The right dose is important. It is your responsibility to know that what you are giving is what is ordered for the resident. Never assume the dosage. Never assume what works for you works for the resident. You have to give what is ordered. Once again, check the MAR very carefully.Making sure that you are giving the medication right is important. Once again, check the MAR. Confirm that the route is right. This may seem obvious but never assume. </p><p>Crucial abbreviations:PO SLRectalTopicalTiming is crucial for medications.
