Día Dos:
.
. Triage. This station is crucial to patient care. Here my primary responsibility was to obtain health information from each patient including personal and family medical history, allergies to medications, if they are currently taking medications or not, and vital signs. This is important because it helps the physician direct their care toward a chief complaint or just a general wellness visit.
.
. Another responsibility that I have as a nurse in triage is to make a clinical judgement call regarding whether or not the patient is safe to continue waiting in line for their appointment, or if they should be seen by a physician more promptly. This depends on symptoms, vitals, and subjective information provided by the patient. For example, if a patient were actively experiencing chest pain, my nursing judgment tells me that this person needs a doctor immediately. On the other hand, if the patient is coming to the clinic for treatment of a common cold, they will usually be well enough to wait in line for their physician consultation. Triage is an important skill that I use in the Emergency Dept. back home, and here in Honduras at our Clínica Medíca 🏥🇭🇳❤️🌎👩🏼‍⚕️🏥 .

Muchas gracias to those of you who are taking the time to read my long posts! This type of clinic nursing is my absolute passion, and I hope to add more countries to my list in the future! For now though, I’ll be loving life in beautiful Honduras for a few more days❤️✈️

P.S.: Meet my little pal, Neilson. He’s a groovy lil cat that loves to give bear hugs and make silly faces!
