i certainly hope you were wearing your official allnurses guide cheerleader's uniform when you did that cheer!
it wouldn't have been as good otherwise.:d
Quote from sharpeimomyou need to turn them upside down and shove them into the ground. this will stop evil spirits from coming up from hades through the ground, as they'll be collected in the urinal. then husband can pee on them and drown them. i'm all about holistic nursing, and this will care for him spiritually as well as physically.
my question is since we don't have an autoclave, should we be boiling them too? we've also been setting them on
the back porch (faces west) on warm days. thanks!
- May 14, '12 by sharpeimomthanks canedukesgirl and wooh!
i've boiled all kinds of things so it's good to know not to boil the urinals. i'll be so darned glad when he's back
in the regulation two matching shoes again!
i was wondering where all the spirits and things would relocate to now that the harry potter series has finished...
i'll report if i see any spirits from hades...
- May 14, '12 by GrnTeaWhen I was a nursing aide on evenings back in nineteen-smumble mumble, we put everyone on the pans at bedtime, and collected them all on the same cart we distributed breakfast trays on. I got to run 'em thru the hopper, including a shot of steam, and then take them all back.

lord helped you if you held the bedpan the wrong way while you were hopping it...
my ex-husband, who was a maintenance guy at the nursing home, actually devised and constructed nifty clear shields that fit onto the hoppers to prevent splash-back.
hoppers... omg i thought they got rid of those way back when
- May 14, '12 by TiffyRNI don't understand why they need to be disinfected and redistributed, but. . .
What's the difference between bleaching a bedpan and some housekeeper squirting hospital-strength 409 on a bedside commode? That bedpan's gonna be a lot cleaner than a semi-private room toilet that maybe gets wiped once a day. I personally never understood why 2 semi-private room patients could share a toilet that was inside a bathroom but not a bedside commode, just because it wasn't inside the bathroom. No one ran in the bathroom between patients and disinfected the seat, heck, the patient was lucky if they could get someone else to come move the other person's hat (with urine in it).
I SO do not miss adult care. . .
- May 14, '12 by IEDaveQuote from TiffyRNYours got wiped once a day? Sheesh - you were lucky! Spent a good hour wiping toilet seats down last weekend just because I couldn't stand it anymore....That bedpan's gonna be a lot cleaner than a semi-private room toilet that maybe gets wiped once a day...
Quote from TiffyRNHasn't changed all that much - pity. But, someone's got to do it!...I SO do not miss adult care. . .
And, in honor of State doing their inspection at my facility - "FOMITE! FOMITE! Rah, rah, rah!"

- May 14, '12 by katsanchezRNQuote from Hygiene QueenWhen I started as a cna 14 years ago....we used soap and water and wash rags and also cloth diapers for those who needed them. I still think that is the best way also.Hoppers...

We also used to clean stool with washcloths.
(I still swear it is the best way to properly clean a patient.)
We rinsed the cloths in the hopper, threw the cloths into a bucket of bleach solution and housekeeping washed the cloths (in house) in the monster washers and killer-hot dryers.
I know some of you will think I worked in a nasty nursing home, but that is the farthest from the truth.
When I tell you that was the cleanest and best run facility I ever did see, you better believe it.
- May 14, '12 by karamarie91What I don't get is when facilities want to reuse towels and washclothes that are saturated in feces/blood/whatever bodily fluid. You can't wash everything out and even if you could, that's just yucky. I dump out heavily soiled linen even though it's heavily discouraged.
- May 14, '12 by notpuurfctbtgdenghnsMore and more health facilities are now conscientious about environmental health; and they know the concept of : reduce, reuse, and recycle.
Hats off also to those facilities that do not just clean, but also disinfect utensils (commode, bedpans, urinals, beds, wheelchairs) routinely.
