    I don't understand why social services was not called. I can bet my butt that your legal department would be up someone's skirt about this. Even on weekends there are social workers. So what if this mom takes a turn for the worst? Sorry, but everyone involved has dropped the ball.

    I work in the inner city and this happens a lot! We call the social worker on call to come and handle it. It's interesting how quickly they can find family to come once they have been told DCFS is going to be called. On our medical floors it happens when a grandparent takes I'll and they are the ones who are the kids guardian. That is sad

    You can't add a free hand goal, most of ours we adapted from
    our paper ones.

    You should be working with EPIC and the builders on this. We have templates we go into and pick which care plan set we want such as Newborn/Transition to Extrauterine Life. Then there are headers such as Neonatal Abstinence/Drug withdrawl, Nutrition, Breastfeeeding and then each had a goal such as Infant will not exhibit withdrawl symptoms and then interventions like medication management, etc. The builders should be looking at your stuff with you and helping you.

    All of our hires have to pass the exam before they start orientation. If they don't pass the job is off the table.

    I have a friend who works in
    the ER in Orlando. She said it was horrifying. My heart hurts over this. I can't imagine the terror people felt, their families felt. My prayers go out to all involved, including the first responders and receiving staff.

    This is is something always in the back of our minds when we work at a Level 1 trauma service. And I pray we never receive that call/page.

    Most places are hiring BSN only or preferred. All our big hospitals here that have NICUs are hiring BSN only.

    Most NICUs have a low turnover so jobs are hard to come by. And it really isn't just "working" with babies like in the nursery. Consider a shadow in a NICU if you have never been in one.

    Many do hire new grads and many have a residency program, but spots are limited. For every open position we have, we have at least 80-100 applicants. We may only have 2-3 open positions per year. Those are the odds. Med-surg is not necessary but work on postpartum/well baby nursery is a good way to gain experience to get a foot in the door.
