My loved one is diabetic and needs to have blood sugar monitored regularly. Who will monitor my loved one’s blood sugar and how will that person be trained?
An assigned Registered Nurse will thoroughly train all necessary staff regarding the procedures for using a blood sugar monitoring machine, as well as other signs and symptoms of out of range blood sugar specific to an individual. Also, the assigned RN will obtain an acceptable and individual-specific blood sugar range from that individual’s physician, rather than presume that all individuals with blood sugar problems be within the same range; each individual may vary in desired blood sugar range, as determine by a physician, and in the outer limits of what’s acceptable or expected in different situations (i.e., after meals, etc.).
