Just wondering what do most of the acute dialysis RNs do during their 1:1 treatments? A lot of places do all bedside treatments, and the patient is fairly stable, chronic dialysis patient, and has a 4 hour treatment, and is probably asleep.
I think reading a book is acceptable. Is reading a book on an iPad acceptable? Are we supposed to stare at the walls? I text my coworkers and bosses frequently about today's assignments. I'm on call a lot and get a lot of calls on my cell phone. What exactly is appropriate? What do you do to pass the time?
