In recognition of National Gerontological Nursing Week from September 30 - October 5, 2013, I have spent time reflecting on my career as a geriatric nurse. I actually began in geriatric care at 17 years old as a nurse’s aide working in a nursing home.  I only started that job because I needed to make some money and my girlfriend’s mother was a nurse and the administrator of the particular facility I was given the job.  I quickly found myself enjoying time with the elderly and saw a real need for advocacy when I’d found residents had not received a bath in a month, and I gave 32 baths in 10 hours.  That was 36 years ago.

The first part of this series dealt with pneumatic compression for the management of lymphedema and discussed the fact that there are three distinct modes of pneumatic compression; (lymphatic, venous and arterial). It explained that the purpose of this series is to educate nurses and other caregivers about these various systems since they are not well known or well understood in the general health care professional community. This lack of understanding can cause confusion which results in a delay in providing the patient with the appropriate therapy, particularly when the prescribing physician scribbles a vague order such as “compression booties”, leaving the nurse to try to decipher what is meant.
