Just another day right? NOT!

    So our usually calm, quiet, and sedate M/S unit is a good place to work. Only real issues tend to be over-narcotic or drug reaction or a fall. Today: Afib RVR/Febrile pre-op/new onset AMS; bedside thoracentesis; accidental chest tube removal; air embolism; and a crumping as we speak....5 different patients all within 45 minutes. wow. I am still trying to debrief. everyone made it though. Still not quite sure how....but we did it! Hooray for med-surg!

    Does SNF stand for something other than skilled nursing facility? Or is that where you mean?

    That's what I'm saying! I've always had at least 20... That's why I'm wondering if SNF stood for something other than skilled nursing facility...
