Nursing bed patients should avoid four misunderstandings
People who are living in bed for a long time have some common mistakes in their lives that need to be avoided.
[Miscellaneous 1]Let the patient “appear to reach out and eat rice.” The elderly at home can’t get out of bed all the year round. Children want to honor the old man, feed the rice, push the wheelchair, let the old man do nothing, and hope that the elderly will recover as soon as possible through meticulous care.
Hao Ke said, let the elderly “clothes to reach out, rice to open mouth” to the patient’s rehabilitation complications.
Many stroke sequelae and hemiplegia, paraplegic old people will become “more and more lazy”, because some patients with central nervous system damage, brain cells will also be damaged, some people will have mental decline or slow responseHappening.
“The more this is the case, the more the family needs to help them do what they can.
“Hao Ke said that only when there is more activity, the patient’s muscles will not shrink due to prolonged bed rest, and the activity is also beneficial for the recovery of damaged nerves.”
[Miscellaneous 2]The activity is the process of “crushing the meat”. The doctor will ask the patient to have more activities, but many people’s activities are to pinch the muscles. This “activity” has some help in preventing muscle atrophy.The healing effect is minimal.
Hao Ke said that the real activity should be the active joints. There are a lot of joints in the human body. There are only 28 hands. The family usually helps the patient to flex, stretch and bend the joints.
Because the bed is not moving continuously, it is easy to cause joint adhesion, which leads to pain.
[Miscellaneous 4]Eat more medicine, quickly and well, in order to make patients happy, the family will listen to the business propaganda to buy a variety of “special effects.”
The recovery of hemiplegia and paraplegia is a long-term process. It must be systematically rehabilitated. Don’t believe that you can cure the “ghost words” of hemiplegia by taking medicine.
Patience is important to care for patients with chronic diseases.
[Mission 3]Turning over as long as “turning over” long-term bedridden patients should often turn over to prevent sick sores, but too many people will push the patient directly when the patient turns over, sometimes force the patient to cause fractures.
Hao Ke said that the movements when turning over should be slow, and the force should not be too large. Some patients with sputum will have muscle atrophy. If the family is too hard to help the patient turn over, it may cause muscle strain or even fracture.
The correct turning over should be carried out on the patient’s body. Following the principle of upper body and lower body, first roll from the patient’s waist, then support the shoulders and buttocks, let it slowly roll, and then achieve the purpose of turning over.
