    -Don't dip your pen in the company ink.
    -don't leave the crap work for the next shift, you make the mess, you clean it up....also, applies to full trashcans and empty water pitchers.
    -Never say "that's not my patient" or "let me find the aide" if you can do what the patient is asking.
    -If you see your 2 CNAs running around answering 5 lights at once...if one of them is your patient and you have a spare moment to answer that light...PLEASE DO IT!!!!
    -Whenever you ask a patient if they need something, they will....5 mins after you leave.
    -Don't assume that the aides know what the dr. ordered for your patient even if all usual cases get scds, teds, ice, etc....gotta tell us, cause some don't order em....
    -If you don't like the way I do my job, tell me, cause I can't use your feedback, or really care about it unless you tell me to my face...then, I'll probably still ignore you because of all the crap you leave for me to do as well.....
    - If you are in a leadership position...then LEAD! I can count on 2 hands the number of times I've talked to my manager....after 14 months, this breaks down to less than 1x a month about unit issues....just slap it on a wall and away you go....

    It's true what they say....night shift people are a different breed....nobody can understand what we get done, and how BUSY we actually can be! And power's that be usually want to have meetings during the day....when we need to be sleeping....Short of actually saying that you can only come to 1 out every 2 meetings, etc...nothing to save on sleep....
    In terms of laws/regulations...nothing comes to mind unless you are talking about a specific situation in these meetings that deal with actual P and P....if things aren't working, and they won't listen to you....I would simply say "Well, I'm not getting any feedback here, nothing is being done, all we're doing is discussing issues not ACTING on them. I could've stayed home for this. If you don't think my concerns are valid, I will be more than happy to find some other night shifter to come for me...."

    I believe (from my time involved with hospice patients and MI close to end patients) that people REALLY do see loved ones when they are close to death. If it's real or not, it doesn't matter. It is real to them.

    stop and think about what you know about the pulmonary system.....if you did NOT apply an occlusive dressing, what would happen? The lung would have more trouble trying to function as part of a open system. The occlusive dressing helps close the system so the lung can still function. It's part of trying to manage the emergency.
