Death Nurse Film Fest V-1.3 (2019) - Bubba's Dumb Rass

Maybe not so dumb

Here's an old favorite, an attempt to blend information with entertainment. One of my biggest nursing bugaboos is the casual and unhelpful use of words like agitated, sedated, and confused. They're problematic because they can be interpreted so many different ways. Communication, decision making, and tracking progress is so much easier when everyone is on the same page about describing what they see.

So, here's a look at the Richmond Agitation Sedation Scale (RASS). It can help us all be more specific about what's going on. Narrated by my BBC-British-voiced friend Adam Wheeler.

Thanks for watching. See you next time.
