    don't forget counselling not only on smoking, drinking, and illicit drug use, but poor diet as well. obviously don't forget to wash hands and drape for all patients. don't forget to ask permission to untie pt gown, and also tie it back up for them when finished. never listen to heart sounds/lung sounds through gown...always untie and listen right on skin. always smile. if pt has recently quit smoking or something, always say "good job" or something like that. never ellicit a painful maneuver a second time. always ask if the pt is comfortable. make good eye contact throughout. never use medical jargon. always end each encounter with "do u have any questions for me at this time?". that's all i can really give in terms of last minute tips. good luck!
    the car's on fire and there's no driver at the wheel and the sewers are all muddied with a thousand lonely suicides and a dark wind blows. the government is corrupt and we're on so many drugs with the radio on and the curtains drawn. we're trapped in the belly of this horrible machine and the machine is bleeding to death.

    -GYBE!

    I would advise going to the test site the day before if possible. I couldn't find my freaking test site (ATL) and it dearly cost me.
