One of the most common questions we get asked is how to be more aware of our general health while on hospital rounds. Because we spend approximately 95% of our waking time on the floor, it’s easy to forget that we have a body and a mind at our disposal – but not the other 5%.
The first thing you should be doing is checking yourself for any immediate medical issues. Then, once you’ve finished checking yourself, continue to monitor any changes in your health like dizziness, fatigue, nausea, or difficulty remembering things. It can take up to three hours for a patient to get through a hospital floor.
the last time we saw our doctor, she was so bored she was playing video games with the nurses.
If you’re in a hospital and you’re having trouble sleeping, try this. You can’t simply lie there and hope it’ll pass. Sometimes, when people are bored, they’ll look at their phone to see if there are any messages from loved ones or friends. If they see no messages, they’ll probably look for other ways to pass the time. Try taking a walk, if possible.
The next time you go to the hospital, you might want to make sure you don’t step on the toes of a patient or doctor who is about to pass away. For one, you may find it upsetting. Also, you may have a better chance at not injuring someone with your foot. Some of the patients and doctors we’ve seen are pretty nasty and it can get very chaotic in a hospital.
I always try to keep my blood pressure up when I go to the hospital. It’s something I’ve had for years, but I’ve been trying to get a little more attention in my life lately. I like to walk so I don’t get so dizzy, and I always pick up my check and put it in my wallet to take with me to the hospital.
We are all creatures of habit, for better or for worse, and it can be difficult to break out of that. In the same way, there is no such thing as a “one and done” in life. Sometimes what we do is permanent, and sometimes it can change a bit. Just as you can make a habit of not smoking, you can also make a habit of not getting high. One is good, the other is bad.
If you’ve ever watched a TV show, you’ll know that one of the recurring characters is the hospital’s chaplain. The chaplain is an old guy who always has a Bible open in his hands and is constantly reading aloud from the Scriptures. In the same way, you can learn from a book that you can never use. A book that you want to never read but have to in order to understand it.
The book that I find most important to understand is the Bible. There is one line in the Bible that is, “God commands all men to repent.” Every word of that one sentence says that God is commanding people to repent. In other words, the command is to turn from your sinful ways.
