CA's BON has not accepted EC for years, except under certain circumstances. Your girlfriend should have done her homework.
I think it's c. None of the mentioned drugs are bedside-emergency stuff.
This is criminal and they have to be punished.
Although it took me a while to understand what a "cay" cey was...lol, I just wanted to let you know that if you desperately need the "k" if you hold down your "alt" key and type "75" you will get a capital K and if you hold down the "alt" key and type "107" you get a small k. I hate when that happens!
Suanna, the turning her in, perhaps. Turning her in to the cops for an angry email? That is not a friend.
I like LTC. Don't love it but like it. I hated being a floor nurse there but then, I hated that in the hospital, too. I am now doing hospice, visiting, and love it. Lots of freedom, lots of autonomy, and no MDs changing orders every 30 seconds.
It depends to a degree on your state. I started in NY and LTC was very tightly watched by the gov't so the corner-cutting I see here in TX, where they have actually outsourced a lot of survey, wasn't possible. But it's hard, wherever you are.
One of the nurses said they shouldn't have tested me again because it could atrophy the muscle, so now I know that I can't get the test again, I just inform them that I have a +PPD.
A naked corpse was found and the cops knew she was a nurse. Her stomach was empty, her bladder was full, and her ass was chewed.
2) Writing care plans to cover our butts rather than drive care. See 1.
3) Shift wars.
4) Resentment between levels, i.e., CNAs to LPNs, LPNs to RNs.
5) Nurse-itis. If the resident needs to pee toilet him, don't wait for him to soil himself and lose what little dignity he has left.
6) Proprietary behavior.
7) Not being able to get the best supplies due to cost. Example: our wound nurse have us a sample of an incredible product for deep wounds. Had a guy whose decub was down to the BONE. Cartilage showing like a chicken bone. Within ONE WEEK we were just waiting for the dermis to granulate in. Now we're back to collagen sheets. DNS won't buy it. You really think another YEAR of treatment with gauze and saline is more cost-effective?!
8) Families who ask why Dad, in end-stage Alzheimers with Korsakoffs, tube-feed, diabetes, atrophied frontal lobes, isn't getting better.
9) Families who find a need to call once a week to complain about the care Mom is receiving. After talking to the nurse on during their visit. Then saving all of the calls for a big one to the DNS. When Mom is being cared for marvelously.
Well, I'm an agnostic hospice nurse in the buckle on the Bible Belt. My first few weeks were mind boggling to me but then, so were my first few weeks in a hospital in this area.
I sile and say, "Bless your heart" a lot.
I certainly don't force meds into someone's mouth. Leave and reapproach and when she has forgotten about meds, when nourishments are being given out, crush it very finely and put it into her snack. We have one lady who gets them in her tea - we snag it from the cart before she knows it's come.
I sneak the med into ice cream or something the resident likes.
