That would be an acceptable incidental exposure. Now if the family member asked you directly and you answered different story.
Many graduates of Filipino nursing schools have been rejected due to concurrency of clinical and theory for the past few years. There are other affected countries. The country of citizenship is not the issue but the country of education.
PT = physical therapist
pt. = Patient.
discuss with your facility HIPAA compliance officer as this will be a he said she said situation.
Yes. Failure to do so can be considered withholding/failure to disclose and subsequent sanctions and/or denial of license. The application specifies exactly what must be disclosed to the BoN by law
Oh please if you can help me. I did complete the RN program and as you stated he will not release my transcript because of payment. What can I do??
I'm not being paid by Medicaid now as I haven't graduated yet and am currently employed as their personal care attendant.
I will have to look more into this as I was wondering myself. Thanks!
New grads generally don't work as independent providers. If otherwise qualified they work for an agency that provides orientation and training as well as verification of training for Medicaid and other insurers. Online training should not suffice to demonstrate competency who is going to verify your skills and knowledge?
TAANA Executive Office - Home the American association of nurse attorneys offers a lawyer referral service for nurse attorneys experienced in license defense. Consultations are rarely free but may be worthwhile
Yes and it would likely violate your employers policies. Other family members might object. Just don't do it.
Keep social media and work separate
Ask the other nurses or the disability center that employs you.
As I explained before private duty/home health agencies offer this training to their employees. Pediatric hospitals and long term care facilities offer this training to their employees. This is not something you can take an online class to demonstrate competency, that's impossible. New grads that take on this kind of work are not independent contractors but agency employees that go through orientation, lab, preceptorship and training through the nurse educator at the private duty/home health agency that hired them. I seriously doubt any agency as explained several times will allow you to do their training as a non-employee and accept responsibility to sign the form and declare you trained and competent.
Nope, LPNs are able to be independent providers here. For more info, you can check http://emedny.org.
If by "contaminated" you mean no longer sterile then so be it. The contents of the stomach is not sterile, we don't ingest sterile food or drink (well maybe straight alcohol). A clean, cup with clean tap water is perfectly sufficient for routine flushes of an NG tube.
