* Shoulder examination
  pogo2006 - 10/31/06 17:53
  During shoulder exam do we take off the drape completely from the patient including the sleeves to expose both shoulders and the chest OR
Do we just pull up the half sleeves to expose little bit of both shoulders
Please help

  You ask the Patient permission to untie and move down the "GOWN" so you can inspect and examine both shoulders. The drape remains on the patient legs.
