Quote from imperial
I am not and refust to stoop to your level of rudeness. I am NOT a paid anything for the prosecution, or whatever/whoever you state. Furthermore, I don't need to justify to you and do appreciate the responses of truth and experience that are shared. The situation in question was witnessed by two patients... emailed to me....re concern about what could happen. The blue connecter was connected to jug. The red connector was not connected to anything either in the wall or in the jug. It was not until the patient asked 'isn't there suppose to be two jugs' did the staff go and get another jug and connect to the red connector. The jug had written on it 3k 2.5 ca.. the staff stated clearly that there was another patient on themachine prior,, therefore, basically stating that before the next patient was connected to the machine there was not check to ensure accuracy of what needed to be done. I find your defensiveness eye awakening and hope you don't respond with such distaste when your patients ask questions. Again, I do so thank those who share their knowledge. This staff was not rude, nasty etc when the patient asked the question. My simple question was what would the patient experience should there not have been the accurate bath.. thanks.
One of the problems I have with you is that you always seem to think the dialysis unit, tech, or nurse is at fault in eveyone of your senarios (sp). And you keep asking the same question over and over to get the answer you want ..Very similar to a prosecution attorney..
I and another poster have told you it's impossible to have the red wand just dangling from the machine not plugged into any thing.. The machine would develop air lock because that is what the wand would be sucking instead of acid.. And still you refuse to believe that.
You had redeemed yourself slightly in my eyes recently but now you've regressed..
Why ask professionals if you aren't gonna take our information..
You asked us why patients weren't compliant as if we weren't teaching them either adequately or at all.. I don't know but I believe many patients end up on dialysis because they weren't compliant with their own care to begin with..
These are adults here.. We can't make them not drink excessively, or take their phosphate binders.
If you don't like the answers you get here maybe it's time to find them in your books..
I just hope you don't condone nurses learning all their skills from a book.
P.S. The previous patient was probably on a standard bath the the acid wand plugged into the wall.. I doubt the staff left the red wand dangling for a full treatment. This is the second or third time you've been told this..OK?????
Also your dig at my nursing care is rude and to think you weren't gonna do any stooping.. I thought I was chatting with a professional here but I guess I was in the wrong..You know nothing of my nursing skills and abilities but I'm finding out about your's quickly.
