RT in Alaska hospitals

  1. Just wondering,

    To those of you that work in Alaska's hospitals. Are Respiratory therapists utilized very much? Or do the RN's do the majority of the work a RT was usually do? I am in Chicago and here RT are used to their full potential (at least where I am at) but I have heard its not like this in other parts of the country.

    At my hospital RN's don't do RT work...our RT's are busy in all departments.

    Guess it depends where you work. At the hospital I worked at the RTs only really came if you had an intubated pt or one on CPAP otherwise you did all your own nebs
