    It has been about 7 years since I took the NCLEX but another tip they gave us in our NCLEX prep class was to always choose the answer that allows the pt the greatest degree of autonomy. In other words the preferred course of action is the one that gives the pt the most decision making power and the greatest degree of independent participation in his/her own care.

    You're going to have SO many other things to worry about besides bed sheets.
    Have you come in contact with semi-private rooms where patients are separated by a curtain hanging from the ceiling? I've never seen or heard of those being washed and I cringe every time I accidentally touch one. Still, I am alive and apparently healthy.
    Where I worked they were actually taken down and washed after patients on precautions were discharged and the room was "purged".

    It's a hospital! Why didn't they get a team of nurses to administer the flu shots!
    Seriously! Justifiable or not, I feel the training a nurse receives in giving injections is more of a defined quantity: anatomical target areas, sterile/ aseptic technique, reaction and side effects, rationales, etc. I've received many, many flu shots; once from a pharmacist, many time at flu clinics where I've volunteered, or in hospital/ clinic settings where the clinical leaders, Assistant Nurse Managers, or clinical educators performed this role for their unit, administering shots to their staff over 2-3 weeks. If there were student nurses, we often let them give the injection, supervised by their instructor. That being said, I've only had one given incorrectly-BY MY CHARGE NURSE!! I didn't react in time; just watched, stupified as he grabbed my arm midway and gave the injection a good 2 inches below the deltoid. I did comment at the time "kind of low, wasn't that"?, which he shrugged off. I did end up with a warm, inflamed area and mentioned to my ANM that I had had a reaction. Not sure if anything she reported anything in writing; I was not given anything to fill out and did not persue it because it did resolve with no residual effect.
