are you still there?
yes I am still here
Well, if she had a history of bowel obstruction or fecal impaction, it may affect her care
but in general, normal BMs are from 3x a day to 3x a week
So no, it would not affect her care
That being said, you can make a late entry and correct it
That way the chart is correct
It is not a big deal, chart corrections happen
People are human.
And dates do get mixed up.
That is why I worry because I don't work again for over a week, so I am wondering if I need to go in and fix it. She has no history of bowel obstruction or fecal impaction, but do you think either could develop because of this?
No, I do not think that she would develop either one of these conditions before of this
It is not a charting thing, it is a physical thing
And there are other signs and symptoms of fecal impaction and bowel obstruction
You can have an impaction after 3,4,5,6 days of no stool
I would call your superior and let him/her know that there is a chart correction which needs to be added and that you can co-sign it when you come back
Very true! Ok, thank you very much! I feel a lot better now. Thank you for your help
you are welcome
I hope that I provided you with excellent service? :-)?
Yes! I will say so in my rating =)
