Where are you getting these "Facts" from, that one of the rudest and ignorant thing i have ever seen postd on this board. If i had $1 for every time i had to cover a LPN's butt for lack of knowledge or sheer incompitance i could retire! Let me ask you this, when a patient is going bad, do run and get another LPN or an RN?
