I am taking a break from studying for my pharm exam to write a little bit about my experience during clinical at a nursing home, and by the way my pharm exam is on 7 chapters and I have 3 days to study….crazy!
So what happens at a nursing home?
If you have never been to one, be prepared. It is a very sad environment. The nursing home I have been assigned to is old and outdated. This nursing home, and I am sure all nursing homes, have different sections. They don’t mix patients. The sections are divided by conditions…or type of disease…there are sections for hip fractures/Physical therapy, respiratory/gastric tubes, a secure area for just Alzheimer patients and more.
