You know I am almost kind of proud of this Md he actually had the b---s to put into words what the majority of Ob's are doing and not telling their patients until they are forced to stay in bed on the monitor( not even allowed to go to restroom) and up in stirrups with a vaccum or a 36+6 week induction on a cesearean section table for failure to progress when they are not even ready for labor all because the Md is going out of town on vacation, - and doesnt want anyone else to deliver his patient, and the patient thinks its because the Md likes her. BS it is for the money.
Now having ranted about all that I do not approve of this Md's practices at all and wish you all the luck in the world.
REMEMBER KNOWLEDGE IS POWER!!!!!!!
I did have a teenage mom who was doing her birth certificate worksheet "waiting for her mother to fill out her part". I had to break it to her " YOU are the mother". Heaven help these babies.
Icea has great workshops for beginners i went in 2007 and thats what got me started
The funny thing is, I keep thinking to myself, "who is really going to put up with my patients besides me?" That is why I always had the same side of the unit, because I could remain calm despite insanity. Plus, I consider myself tech support on the floor, fixing the gadgets and helping the unit manager find things on her computer. She did say once "what would we do without you?" and I said (joking) "you would all be screwed!" lol. I have re-orientation this morning, then I am going to the third floor where I will have my med pass observed for two weeks (I wonder how long that will last), then once weekly for a month, then once a month for a while. I am still looking for something different, and have applied other places, but I am going to try to make the best of it.
I am just a little bit bummed out because I consider the staff on the second floor my friends, I have worked with essentially the same team for a year, and I don't adjust to change easily (meaning I dont enjoy it, I can figure things out quickly though).
No doubt. There are things that should be done that are missed every day due to time constraints. However, I do NOT feel that medication administration is the place to skimp on time or safety. There is NO instance in which it is okay not to follow correct drug administration guidelines. None, no matter the circumstances. Not ever. That is not being an idealist. That is just non-negotiable.
hey Fun do you really want to work at that facility. cuz I wouldnt
I had that knick name a few years ago. my 3rd day working at a new hospital had my first percreta ( can you say disaster) then a few days later crash c/section then a few weeks after that had an abruption walk in with a live baby, 10 mins from door to baby I was quite proud of that of course we had 2 anesthesiologist starting lines and drawing blood admit assessment consisted of what are you allergic to and do you have any medical conditions. extra techs called from surgery one nurse cathing and one nurse shaving. Nursery having a fit after delivery because the hep b immunization consent was not signed prior to delivery( go figure) but thankfully the black cloud has receeded a little
Just use the book, Highlight the most important aspects of the book and teach those things to the moms Our book is quite lengthy and there is no way to go over all of it. In our Baby care class we teach the basics. if they have not delivered start with appearances and what to expect. then skin care, cord care, diapering. bath time, etc. till you have completed your outline. are you a student
20 years ago I was Rae I had an instructor who told me I was too young and immature to ever be a good nurse. Ha Ha I was the only one in that clinical rotation that she did not give an unsatisfactory to. to this day I still hate her. Nursing school is hard enough without nasty instructors who have no business being a nurse much less an instructor. You can definitly now say you have been there and got the t-shirt. It will always make you more sympathetic to new nurses.
lisamct I want to come work with you no body hear gets a chance to labor with bow intack
intrapartum management modules is a great resource for new nurses. I have 20 years experience and really enjoyed reading it and I actually learned a few things. Good Luck
I have decided that when my Daughter or DIL have children that I am going to have to leave the country because I will be a NERVOUS WRECK!!!!
I have always found when recieving these patients that compromise will go a long way. I always sit down with them early on and discuss their birth plans with them, I point out the things that may be a problem. in the end I tell them that I respect their wish and that I hope they will respect me in the aspect that I am there to make sure that they have a happy healthy baby and a happy healthy mom and that I may have to do things that disagree with their birth plan but I will do those things only as a last resort. I dont think I have ever had a couple disagree with me and I have actually taken care of a couple of them with their next baby.
I absolutely agree with Bagladyrn. If they are a multip and they are sitting up for an epidural check them asap when you lay them down or it can and will happen again. by the way hold you head high I guarantee you that every one of those nurses have done something wrong in their career and if they havent it is only a matter of time before they do make one. plus I quit counting the number of precip deliveries I helped with years ago.
If you are not following standards for your hospital community and awhonn you are leaving yourself open to be undefendable. check your standards.
