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?

    What kind of SNF only gives you 8-9 patients?! Sign me up! I have at least 18!

    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...
