PERSISTENT/SCD/LOVENOX by Philomena N Okeke.(My little poem)

I like to stick to

what I believe in.

I persisted on my speech.

I must persist

To persist you must know

He said NO.

But I persisted .

Where is NO?

I t does not fit.

I have no time to waste.

Push ,push on.

In Nursing School you persist.

No is not an answer.

It pushes you back.

Revisit NO and make it YES.

Persistent is the answer.

To persist is to press on.

Give to Cesar what is his.

I got what is mine.

Presumption does not mean right.

Nurse persisted on the need for

ambulation based on doctor’s order.

Walking decreases hospitalization.

The Nurse was right.

There should be no presumption

that patient does not want to ambulate.

Ambulation is good for me.

Ambulation is good for you.

If immobile.

Where is SCD?

Where is lovenox?

Is it contraindicated?

Why is patient not ambulating?

Per doctor’s order (Ambulate patient TID)

Who wants DVT/PE?

Nobody.

Does patient need pain medication before ambulation?

Nurse medicated patient for pain.

Patient felt better and ambulated.

Does patient need assistive device to ambulate?

Nurse ,thanks I feel better.

Nurse persisted everyone won.

Efforts were planned and coordinated .

There is no fear when you persist.

It is good to persist.

Determination is to persist.

To persist is to insist and press on.

Push,push on.

I pursue.

He perseveres.

I endured and ride on.

I strive.

Jesus persist that he

should wash his eyes in the pool.

He washed and received his sight.
