Being able to actually help the patient and the family was amazing to witness.

Because we did not have a clinical last week, I wanted to ensure that I did not disregard little details about my assigned resident that may have been overlooked. I reviewed the information my partner and I completed in the concept map, my resident's assessment/health history information, and how my resident behaved the prior clinical day. It rests imperative to not only retain background knowledge of my resident, but also to distinguish how she has transformed over my time with her - physically, mentally, and emotionally.
