HI, got questions? Just ask. :)
If you are running pressor gtts or propofol/versed/fentanyl, always make sure you have plenty left in the bag. I had a couple of times where a colleague gave report and stated that there was plenty of juice in the bag. From now on, when I take pt's from that "colleague," we do a full 200% hands on and visual inspection during hand off. If I find a bag running low, I make them order a new one before they go home.
Not trying to insult ANYONE as per my comment (#183). In my organization, we do not have keys and even when deployed in austere regions of the world, LPNs are/were not allowed to carry such keys. Apologies to those that feel offended. We are all entitled to our own opinions but there will be times (like my post) that some will feel otherwise. Carry on.
Are any of those patients currently reading all these stories? If so, could the real slim shady please stand up?
Stay OFF the drugs! In MHO, weed just numbs the brain but it does not take the pain away for ever.
I would have told that nurse sup NO. I already started drinking.
I hate management that panic to fast and call people off just to realize 30 minutes later that they really need all hands on deck. I do not condone such thinking. If you tell me I am off, then I go on to do other things as my mind is already made up.
I go home with pay. I am a salary employee. Other times, I catch up on the tons of mandatory training required or other government related politics.
Have you contacted your BON? It may be a while before anything shows up on your record. Has it been a month? It would not hurt to call the BON and check for yourself. According to some of your postings, I do not agree on how they behave. It sort of boils my blood that there are some spineless lifeforms out there. Good luck.
I find those Pyxis machines are horrible. Sometimes my finger print logs me in under someone else! My facility is aware of this issue. We have manual log in with a username and pass but only after 3 failed attempts to finger in. Its biometrics but I doubt it's the most sophisticated level. .
Patience grasshopper! Patience.... you will get there. Don't be in a hurry.
