Nurses are expected to have a discussion on certain health case, may it be about the case of a previous patient or the current health trends. This discussion or lecture is done regularly for the nurses to remind them of the what is, what are not, and what will be of health care. Usually the discussion is done by the head nurse and/or nurse supervisor. At some points, doctors can do the lecture for the nurses, and will be followed by an interactive discussion.
In lieu with the present situation on Middle East Respiratory Syndrome – Corona Virus or MERS- CoV, we had a one hour lecture on the topic with Dr. Ikramy (Medical Director) and Dr. Agghiad (Orthodontist).
The lecture on MERS- CoV was hovered by an interactive discussion between the doctors and nurses. Case definition, signs and symptoms, laboratory tests, and case management were included during the talk. Additional reminders on handwashing, and personal protective equipment (PPE) were also tackled. Some nurses were asked to demonstrate the proper hand hygiene, while others were questioned on what have been talked about.
We concluded the case discussion on MERS- CoV with a not- so- empty stomach (kidding acknowledged here ;)), but with a full- of- ATP brain.
