LPNs necessarily carry out their job duties under the supervision of either an RN or a doctor. An LPN collects information from the patients to be admitted; regarding medical records, medical insurance details, and helps in completing other pretreatment formalities. An LPN records health details of patients; which usually comprise blood pressure, body temperature, respiration and heartbeat rate among other vital signs. They help the patient prepare for medical examinations and takes test samples from patients. They administer medicines and injections prescribed by the physician to the patients.If the patient has external wounds on his body, they dress the wounds regularly for quick healing. Treating bedsores is also an LPN's responsibility. An LPN with a good amount of practical experience may be required to oversee the work done by Certified Nursing Assistants (CNAs). After recording the medical condition of the patient, they inform the respective doctor about the same.They take care of the sanitary requirements of patients; which consist of bathing, dressing and similar other tasks related to personal hygiene. They feed the patients and monitors their food and liquid intake and output. Monitoring catheters is also their responsibility. An LPN monitors the patients' health condition and reports changes in the same to concerned doctors. Once the patient is about to be discharged from the hospital, she informs family members of the patient about regular medications needed, the diet to be followed, and gives them the guidelines for patient care. These are the basic tasks in an LPN work day. The care and support she provides to the patients during their hospitalization is almost as important as the medical care they receive.
