If they're in a hospital, they aren't having a good day. Wish them luck, tell them you hope things go well for them, wish them the best. Try and avoid lengthy interrogations about why they're there -- some folks are already all too familiar with the problem that brought them there, and may not want to discuss it.

Does New York-Presbyterian Hospital have a Notary?

The answer to this question was not researched -HOWEVER- in an institution that large it only stands to reason that at least one of their employees IS a Notary Public. The question is - do they offer Notary service to the general public? Many institutions and corporations and businesses employ Notary's Public, but they do not necessarily offer this service to the public at large, they are used only for internal administrative purposes.

Can a LPN work in a magnet hospital?

Answer Two:

An LPN can work in a Magnet Certified Hospital. The ANA does not define the role. The hospital may determine who they hire to perform which duties. As long as the LPN is working within their scope of practice and the hospital meets the guidelines required for Magnet Certification an LPN can work at a Magnet Hospital.

There is a not a requirement for Magnet status that says you may not employ LPNs.

Answer One: No, a LPN cannot work as a Nurse in a Magnet Certified Hospital. The ANA Magnet Organization does not define a roll nor recognize the existence of a LPN.

An LPN can work in other capacities such as a Nursing Assistant, Janitor, Unit Secretary, or any other job that they are qualified other than a LPN.

How to treat torn ligament in foot?

First, be sure it is a torn ligament. A doctor will need to examine it to be sure it is not a cracked or broken bone, or a bad sprain - all three of these things feel equally painful (actually I had a bad sprain once that hurt worse than the time I broke a bone in my ankle).

If it is torn, you will probably have a strap-on cast to wear that will hold the ligament in place while it heals - this will take anywhere from six weeks to six months. Ligaments are hard to heal because there is not a good blood supply to a ligament.

You should prepare to have some arthritis in the area after middle age if it is torn, because it will always be weak and the scar tissue never gets quite as flexible as the area once was, so it gets damaged more easily. You should stay off that foot as much as possible while it is healing, and do whatever physical therapy exercises the doctor gives you (usually stretching exercises). Ice packs (hold them on the area for 15 minutes, then remove to prevent frostbite and leave off for 15 minutes) and elevation (put the foot on a pillow or footstool) are also good. Ibuprofen (2-3 over-the-counter tablets every eight hours with food) will help with pain and swelling.

A ligament injury is never going to heal 100% back to normal. You're going to have to do a tremendous amount of PT once the healing process begins.

Ice, elevation and stabilization are the only things that are going to help you during the first week or so. Start PT as you feel your comfort level rising.

First exercise. Range of motion: Remove your stabilizing boot. Sit on a tall stool, a bed or something that will allow your ankle to hang. Slowly trace the letters of the alphabet with your foot.

See an orthopedic doctor (specialist) for the rest of the exercises.
