    What are some tips or procedures to follow when talking vital signs or respiration/blood plessure for clients?

    When a client refuses to obey any orders or suggests from CNA, how should she handle the situaion when it starts to rise?

    The best thing is to encourage the patient/client that it is for their best interest, after that, if it still doesn’t convince a patient/client to obey the orders, notify the Nurse over the patient/client.

    Also in regards to vital signs here what I when to report to nurse if:
    Temp: <99.5
    Resp: <28 or >14
    Pulse <100 or > 60
    Systolic <150 or >100
    Diastolic <90 or >50

    But please obey the hospital’s/company’s standards to reporting to the Nurse.


    If a patient refuses from me anything that I have been asked to do I step back and let the RN come in.. She can make that decision from there to either get the Charge involved or let the patient be.
