We asked ” What would you do differently now you have the training ?”
I will never refer to a patient as a diabetic again!
Check patients feet more often
Checking the feet on admission
Remember to check a random BM on patients on anti-psychotic medication
I would refer patient to diabetes team when needed
I would question doctors not to give iv insulin on its own but I would like to see more clear guidelines for it
Diabetes is a very serious disease and needs be managed appropriately to avoid complications in the future
Very helpful upgrade
Ketosis prone flat- bush diabetes
Always use IV dextrose when a patient is on sliding scale
I would check the feet
I know to administer insulin alongside tube feed not before otherwise the patient will experience hypo
Aware of foot problems actually conduct visual and touch test
Challenge doctors regards PRN actrapid and VRIII prescription
What have you gained?
Much higher awareness of diabetes on this ward; I feel the training was a big successCardiology lead nurse
More confident dealing with diabetes patients: clarified questions
Training very useful, esp. early screening managing hypo and hyperglycaemic situations
How would you describe the training?
Completely mind blowing and has changed the way I think about diabetesCare home nursing staff
This is vital in my work role as staff nurse. Especially how to manage low and high blood glucose
