Our trainer, Nurse B., explained what a prolapsed uterus is & said this about the condition:
- "As you might imagine, that's not supposed to be rubbing on a resident's clothes or wheelchair. It was never meant to see the light of day. It gets kind of irritated, so part of the care plan may be to rub some ointment on it."
- "How will you know? When you're doing perineal care, you'll see what looks like a cantaloupe."
Speaking of gravity, Nurse B offered the following tips:
- "When you get a resident in that whirlpool tub, don't be surprised if her little boobies float to the top. And by the way, it works the same way with testicles."
- "And that goddamn toilet seat is loose. Every time I sit on it, the damn thing pinches my balls. I've been telling you people about it for 2 weeks, but no one does anything!"
