Student Nurse, prn

Update: Mom...

She's home, after having to stay an extra night in the hospital due to a low grade fever.

She did have a first semester nursing student (RN) assigned to her, which I thought was hilarious. I am sure she talked the guy to death. Poor fella was having a hard time just getting her BP (he couldn't manipulate the automatic machine).

Treatment plan: Rest, q 6 hour Percocet (oxycodone and acetaminophen)

The only PT she received in the hospital was she was taught how to do a log roll to get out of bed. No brace or anything else.

She seems in good spirits. Talking on the phone 24/7! Typical of my Mom. She also wanted to take a shower when she returned home but was referring to the shower as the "den of doom...where the evil happened..." --all in jest of course. I told her to get a shower chair just in case.
