20/07/2021 – Sleep shift – carla cornelius

Shift Report:

Fela enjoyed his facial scrub in the bath. He completed his evening routine well, and was in bed and lights out for 22:40. I only dressed him in vest and loose, cotton underpants because it was so hot. Fan was left on, and door kept more ajar for ventilation.

I thought I heard Fela but wasn’t sure as there were competing noses from inside and outside. I checked him at midnight and he was making intermittent noises so I went up to him, and noticed his head was  propped up quite high on the pillow. I prompted him to lie his head flat, then I spread the duvet cover over his whole body, and prompted him to cover his eyes with the eye mask, as the computer was giving off lights underneath the desk.

I checked on him again at 1:30 then 2:30 and he was quiet. I went up to greet him at 8:00. He was lying down with his eyes half-open. Eventually he went to the loo, then came back and his supplements and refreshments at 8:20. Fela was in the shower by 8:50 then dressed and down for breakfast at 9:15.

Nadia and Claire came to collect him at 9:30; we had a detailed handover then they all left at 9:45 with Fela looking happy and content.

Arousal States – Start: 1 Baseline End: 1 Baseline Did his state change? Yes to 2a – Vocal Fela became vocal between lights out at 22:40 and midnight.

No Bristol score: Was Fela incontinent?: No Did he have vigorous exercise?: –
