Ep052: Make Appropriate Room Assignments for Cognitively Impaired Patients

nclex prep nursing podcasts
  • If a patient is confused, impulsive, forgetful, or agitated, make sure they have a room close to the nurse’s station
  • Do not put these patients at the end of the hall, where it’s harder to hear them if they call out (maybe they can’t figure out how to use the call bell, forget about how to use it, refuse to use it… and so forth)
  • Place them in a room near the nurse’s station, in which staff are frequently walking by or are in earshot of the patient
