i'm sorry you find honey offensive. go find a kleenex or report to forum admins .
thank you all for your comments. I wrote JCAHO so they could investigate into it
I don't have an issue. I'll be done with my masters degree in less than a year. My issue is that dialysis companies in texas gets away with murder if they can. Literally. I've been working in dialysis a long time and i think they get away with what they can and when they get in trouble they try to blame the nurses.
I don't care that she is an lvn...but I do not think an LVN can ever be charge over any RN's. Thank you!
So i found out that the charge nurse at a LTAC in houston is an LVN. Actually they have two charge nurses but she is one of them and she's only an LVN and she dialyzes there without the charge RN. I thought in acute dialysis LVN's were not allowed?
Me too. I kinda want to live in the loop.
Dry weight probably needs increasing.discuss with Dr. Patients never like to accept the fact thier weight needs increasing.
no way dude. Sometimes I wish I was in front of a computer and had my own cubicle.
I'm thinking about being a travel dialysis nurse.
wow.maybe i should be a travel nurse.
wow this article makes me want to join a nurses union.
I work with a tech who has 14 yrs experience . She doesn't fail to mention it at least two to three times a month. I have five years HD experience and I was in acutes for two. I'm seriously thinking of going back to acutes despite the hectic nature of my schedule in acutes because at least I would be working with other nurses in the hospital. I am constantly being told what to do by this tech and also if a patient has a problem , she will come and talk and I won't be able to get a word in edgewise. She has ADHD also .When a patient has a complication I feel as if the tech is anxious because she repeats a lot of things and sways back and forth (could be due to the adhd) but I get so irritated that I just walk away. Some of the patients refer to her as a nurse. When they find out she can't do everything then I remind them I'm the one who is a nurse. I'm very close to quitting this job although the pay is really good since I work for a private nephrologist group. i do not want to get the tech fired because she lives paycheck to paycheck and I have enough to meet my needs.
I just get so frustrated when she teaches patients without asking me or teaching them initial teaching. Oh and I forgot to mention when a patient does have a complication or something and she takes care of it, if I go to the machine and do something she always comes and say what's wrong. She always asks whats wrong when I go to a patient because she wants to know everything. Am I supposed to answer to her/?
I only tell her the important things but I don't feel as if I have to answer to HER. I'm charge nurse. am i in the wrong here?
I agree with that one person's comment. This article seems "holier than thou". We all have flaws. I agree that from what the original poster wrote that the agency nurse was not a team player but how can we tell what exactly went on from one view point?
