20/08/2021 – Evening shift – zoe holmes

Shift Report:

When I returned Fela was relaxing on the sofa, I said hello and had handover,  I then started to prepare the evening meal.

I went into Fela at put some aloe gel around his eyes and made him comfy, I updated the board and showed Fela and then I read to Fela, he seemed to enjoy this, after I finished off our meal.

At 5.30pm Fela had his supplements and then at approximately 6pm we all sat down and ate our meal, Fela ate all his meal but looked very down, after I applied some more aloe gel around Fela’s eyes and then Fela had two white willow, Fela then lay down and started to watch a film.

At 7.20pm I changed Fela’s dressing due to leaking both sides, after Fela relaxed and continued to watch his film, for most of this evening staff have sat with Fela in the lounge and he’s been happy with this, after the movie we listened to relaxing piano music with the crackling fire.

Fela had his evening snack and continued to relax.

Dan completed Fela’s night routine and he did well, Fela had a lovely soak in the bath.

At 21.20, I supported Fela out of the bath and removed his dressing, Fela gave me a smile, which was so lovely to see, I’ve certainly missed seeing Fela’s smiles, when Fela saw Teresa he began to giggle, which was lovely to hear, I then supported Teresa to apply a new dressing, before ending my shift.

Fela as being coughing at some points this evening, please can we observe this.
