Chart throwing by a doctor. Yes, right across the room.
Huge chart racks at the Nurses Station.
Paper charts and MARS; rolodex type Kardexes; being taught to check for Homan's sign in nursing school
and doing this in clinicals; hanging an IV bag, counting the drips by your watch and using a roller clamp to adjust the rate; volutrols; latex gloves.
An atmosphere of pride and satisfaction in care given; daily morning bed baths using soap, water, and washcloths, and bed linen changes; making mitred corners with bed sheets; lots of experienced nurses; Heparin locks on peripheral IV's; hanging Aminophylline on ICU step-down in nursing school; Heparin infusions for stroke patients; huge binders full of paper policies and procedures.
