You did the right thing. The family were your priority when your patient had died.
On a similar vein, I was with a close family member when they died (it was expected). When her daughter arrived, I told her it was a peaceful death. It wasn't. Knowing this will not help her daughter, so I keep it to myself.
Hi, you are best off talking to the university you wish to apply for. They may let you APEL part of the course, but as the two are rather different, I don't think you would be able to just do a short course.

So now one of the Sheriffs department ( who entered the apartment without any PPE) is possibly showing symptoms too apparently. He walked into a medical centre where they called an ambulance for him.
Yet more potential mistakes ...

I think I might watch the film "Contagion" tonight.
In the UK we have separate anaesthetic rooms. We send for our next patient as we get towards the end of the procedure. We then turn the room round in the time the patient is being anaesthetised. Our lists do not allow anaesthetic or recovery time. Then they wonder why we either run over or end up cancelling patients.
Love this thread, keep the stories coming guys!
Never be afraid to ask if you don't know, if you try to blag it, you will get caught out. And as stated above, treat your colleagues with respect. They may be lower down the 'totem pole' but do have experience, so listen to their advice too.
