Duty: Week 2: MSH WARD

10:25 AM Ritz 0 Comments

After a week in ICU, we are now assigned in Ward/Floor at MSH-Hospital. I was assigned to a patient with Amoebiasis. It wasn't so tiring because vital signs taking was every 4 hrs only and same with the Intake and Output Monitoring. After I took my initial vital signs at 4pm,I went to our student lounge and rest...

At 6pm I was preparing my medication, it was Ranitidine (ampule) to decrease gastric secretions. I got the syringe but the problem is I'm not good in opening the ampule (you opened the ampule by breakin the upper portion) I once opened an ampule during my summer class and it was not good. The ampule got me bleed. Since then, I have this fear of opening any ampule. Anyway, I have no choice but to open the Ranitidine ampule. When I break the top, wow it crushed into pieces, but luckily the lower portion was okay, the solution was still intact! Hehehe...

I love doing the IVTT's but when it comes to preparing medication in ampules? Don't ask me! I need to practice more in preparing medications. Hopefully, before I graduate, I'll be good in opening ampules!
