no why was the narcan given ? was pt OD ?
after being nurse 30 years last 15 in ED .I just started a Hospice Case Manager position recently.
After 30 years of working in a hospital setting :Step down,CT surgery ,ICU/CCU,ED,Telemetry,Dialysis,etc.I decided I needed a change.I start a full time Hospice position Monday.My husband passed away in 5/2017 of Stage 4 cancer after a 2 year battle.The nurses in patient ,outpatient and Hospice were all exemplary.The Hospice position is a Casemanager in out patient settings.
work with an agency do contract or local travel assignments .usually 13 weeks.
I have been a nurse 30 yrs last 15 in Emergency Departments .I just accepted a full time position as Hospice Case Manager .My Husband was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer in 2015 and passed away last may 2017.The oncology and hospice nurses were awesome.I have been considering Hospice for awhile .I start feb 5th.
I updated my Linkedin profile including an updated resume,used Indeed and career builder as well.Both with my resume.I also contacted some local contract ,travel agencies .I also let my friends know I was job hunting.I just accepted a full time position with local company thru my old boss.took me 3 weeks.
I am so sorry for what you and your family are going thru .It is very stressful .some people just don't think before speaking others are just clueless,
My brother in law died of lung cancer leaving my sister and 6 kids at thanksgiving.My mom died from sepsis at xmas the same year .this is their 10th anniversary .on top of that i just lost my husband few months ago.He had spinal cancer stage 4 at diagnosis and went thru radiation and 42 chemo treatment.I worked full time .then this year he died from brain bleed .it was very stressful .both his work and mine knew his diagnosis and treatments .we are both ED nurses.but somethings people said were clueless.I just learned who I could depend on and who I couldn't.
Absolutely horrible.So sad.
I have been a nurse over 30 years .Yes I have made a few med errors but no harm to pt .Certainly not a fatal error.
Yep tell me about it .I have a partially displaced comminuted distal radius fracture after a fall.Was xrayed at urgent care given 3 days of tramadol 50mg .Did not help the pain in wrist.Saw ortho next day casted and given 3 days of oxycodone 5mg .Still in pain 10 days later cannot take motrin.Told to take tylenol.It trobs so bad at night it keeps me awake.
you could also look to your supervisor and see if they could send you to a class on 12 lead EKG.or you could go to a seminar on it this would get you CEUs
There is one local in Woburn .they staff Big and small Boston area hospitals.I know for a fact MGH and Brigham.
There are lots but check into Supplemental Health Care. they are real good.
Have you thought of going to staffing company and doing contracts.usually 13 week assignment .That gets your foot in door alot hospitals use staffing companies.
No ,they are 2 consenting adults .MYOB
