04/09/2021 – Evening shift – zoe holmes

Shift Report:

Fela was sat on his rocking chair on my arrival, I said hello and then had handover from Michael.

Dan updated the board and I started the evening meal, I then made us all a drink, after I started to pack Fela’s bags for his stay at Mama and Michael’s on Sunday.

We all sat down for our evening meal, Fela said prayer and I encouraged Fela to eat neat and tidy, Fela keep dipping his wedges in ketchup and then in his water, I think that he was doing it to get a reaction from me, so I decided not to react, after Fela had his dessert and then sat down and relaxed.

Dan removed Fela’s dressing and the flap of skin from his left keloid was on his dressing, I reassured Fela and then we left Fela a couple of minutes because he was slightly vocal, I then asked Fela if he was ready for Dan to put fresh dressing on and he was happy with this.

After Fela relaxed, at 8pm Fela had his evening snack and then listened to music.

Dan supported Fela with his bath routine and then Fela relaxed happily in his bath.
