Vital Signs Clinical

We had our first clinical this week. My group is at a nursing home and we were each assigned a rehab resident to take vital signs on. I was assigned to a cute little old gentleman who kept thanking me for taking his blood pressure. Let's just say he wasn't quite oriented x3, but he was nice and appreciative.

My favorite moment was while I was waiting for my instructor in the breakfast room with the other residents of the nursing home. One gentleman said something about all the different colors of pills he has to take and another lady said, "Yeah - we even burp in Technicolor."
