I'm kinda seeing both sides of the fence right now. The other day, i was SUPPOSED to not bathe 4 of my pts. because the students were supposed to. All the vitals on teh floor were supposed to be gotten by the students. Well out of 30 pts., 12 pts' vitals were done, and those 4 baths that their instructor specifically asked me NOT to do bease the pts. were assigned to students were not done until after noon.
Here's the fun part:
Two students actually said "well it's not like we're ever going to have to bathe patients or do vitals when we're an RN. That's what the aides are for." I tell this to the instructor, and she says "oh i'll talk to them". Yeah we've all heard that song and dance before. Ironically these students had wondered aloud weeks ago why the aides never looked or spoke to them. Can't imagine WHY?!
And like i'd said on another post, when i went up and introduced myself to a nurse (as a student), and her reply was "Great, another ****ing student". If people would start with basic human respect and do what they're supposed to do, you'd never see threads like this.
Golytely=GoOftyn, Goplenty (Directions: Take jug and cup, 12 pack of double roll toilet paper (soft) and stack of magazines to the john, pull pants down, sit on toilet, procede to drinking Goplenty. Stay seated for the rest of the day, clip out favorites from the magazine articles.)

"code blue" called overhead- there were no pagers.
Longest surgery i've scrubbed on was a multi-level spine fusion where scar tissue was involved.
If i have to pee, i ask for 5 minute relief.
Gum stuck in long blond (bleached) hair. The doctor wrote a recommendation on an order sheet to a cosmetologist.
I hear 'client', i think of Hair Club for Men.
"And i'm not only the club president, but i'm also a client!"
A couple of tips and such to help:
~~~Women need a reason to have sex.......men just need a place.~~~
I guess you don't know very meny good men do you?
Doctors that get angry when their pt. is exhausted because the pt. hasn't slept. Well uh when you prescribe their qd Lasix at 2100 and it's 80 mg, yes they're going to wear a path out to the bathroom all night since they have to pee all the time. And that equals no sleep. Jeez
What annoys me about that is when we have the one coodinator who sends pts. to our floor, then starts in on another floor. In other words, she fills our floor first, then fills another floor, then moves on to the next on. Instead of "taking turns" with admissions. Then we wind up having to call people in, while other floors have to send 2 or 3 nurses home due to low census! :angryfire
For one, I can't believe a Lpn is in a operating room,why???
That's why i posted this. NONE of my instructors went over any of this when i was in school
I am not an OR observer, but have been long ago when in nursing school.
