Licensed vocational nurses read vital signs such as pulse, temperature, blood pressure and respiration. They administer injections and enemas, monitor catheters and give massages or alcohol rubs. They may apply dressings, hot water bottles and ice packs. They also help their patients bathe and dress, treat bedsores, empty bedpans and change soiled bed sheets. LVNs may feed patients and record their food consumption, while monitoring the fluids they take in and excrete.
Additional job tasks include watching patients closely and report any signs of treatment complications or adverse medication reactions. In some states, they are permitted to administer medicine and start IVs. Licensed vocational nurses collect samples for testing, help superiors perform advanced medical procedures and complete routine tests by themselves. Some assist in the delivery, care and feeding of infants. Licensed vocational nurses also tend to a patient\'s comfort, personal hygiene and emotional needs
