    I'm just finishing my BSN, not my Master's, but I have none.

    Sounds like she's just journaling the day as she sees it. I see nothing wrong with it. Maybe it helps her process the days events.
    A patient's chart is a legal document. If she needs to process the day's events, she should use a blog, not the patient's chart. One does not JOURNAL in a legal document.

    NOT true. Remember when hundreds (I think even thousands) of people had their privacy control settings disabled and their entire account was able to be seen. Those security account settings are not foolproof. ?
    THen check it every morning when you get up to make sure your settings are secure, or get off Facebook.

    I'm continually astounded when people who post on public internet sites have an expectation of privacy.

    "Seriously old-fashioned' is not the word I would use to describe your point of view.
    I would call it ******* tone-deaf, mysogynistic, ******** ******* ****.

    Women need to be made aware of this fact and behave accordingly. More modest dress, less alcohol, stop going to places where general wildness is encouraged. Stay in a group, don't go off alone with a male, stop the pre-marital and extra-marital sex. Seriously old-fashioned here, I know.
    This DISGUSTS me. More than anything I've read here all day. Attitudes like THIS is a HUGE part of the problem, and part of rape culture. I cannot even put into words how disgusted I am by what you wrote.

    AFeeling a little fragile today for the loss of our brothers and sisters and surprised to see no reference to it on this board today.
    For me, it's simply because I am afraid by posting something, it might be seen as misappropriating emotions that, as a privileged white heterosexual, I don't want to do.

    I am grieving for the LGBTQ and Orlando communities.

    I don't work in the ED, but as part of my job of conducting the first OB appointment/history of newly pregnant patients, I would always scrub the patients' charts before their appointment. I have seen some pretty ridiculous abuses of the ED. I saw a woman who had called the ambulance and went to the ED for "vaginal itching/yeast infection". And MANY women who think it's appropriate to go to the ED because she had a +home pregnancy test and "wanted to make sure everything was all right/wanted an ultrasound". IMO people need a serious re-education on appropriate use of ED services.

    Hopefully someone will rape him in jail.

    And you can buy it on Amazon.
    Which is pretty inconvenient if you need to take emergency contraception.

    Sadly, in some communities, it's just not available, because of the ******** that RM mentioned. ******* people who think their morals and religious values can dictate other people's legal rights to contraception.

    Although not exactly on point to the thread, I am reminded of one of our pharmacists who has religious beliefs against abortion. He will not dispense a script for Plan B insofar as he believes it is an abortifacient. We have another pharmacist dispense the script. The state Board of Pharmacy has explicitly ruled it is ethical for a pharmacist to refuse to dispense these scripts based on their religious belief.
    Which is ******* ********.

    I was asked to give IM ceftriaxone to a patient by one of the providers (usually the MAs give/administer meds, but I am the only one who can give ceftriaxone and Rhogam). I got the med ready in the syringe, went into the patient's room. Asked for her full name and date of birth, then asked if she has any med allergies. She said she's allergic to penicillin and "-caines". I responded that the antibiotic I'm going to give her is not related to penicillin so it's not a problem, but I will still want her to hang out for about 20 minutes after the injection in order to make sure she doesn't have a bad reaction to it.

    As I'm cleaning off her buttock with alcohol, and grab a bunch of flesh and am about to stick the needle in, the patient asked "Will this burn?" and I responded "No, it shouldn't burn because I mix it with Lidocaine." And as I'm about to dart the needle in, I hear myself say that and remember she just said she's allergic to -caines. I respond "Oh my gosh!" and pull away before I stick her with the needle and she turns around at the same time, also realizing what I just said. I then asked her what type of reaction she has, and she said that she has difficulty breathing. I apologized profusely, left the room and wasted the drug and remade it with sterile water.

    Holy cow, I came within seconds of making a horrible error. If she hadn't asked me if the shot would burn, I would have given the drug. The thing is, I looked at her record and for allergies it's listed as "NKDA" so it would seem that nobody has reviewed her allergies with her in who knows how long.

    Trying to decide if I need to file an incident report. Technically it was a "near miss" I guess. I haven't had a med error in about 6 years. I just keep replaying it in my head, thinking about what would have happened if she hadn't made that comment right as I was about to give her the injection.
