One of our MD we fax the Inr and the other md we have a protocol for
We had one patient on it and he did however have heart issues - he died two days later haven't had anyone on it since
Don't write will continue to monitor - will you be there every shift to monitor this patient? This is what I was told! If it's not right feel free to correct me:-)
Colonized MRSA does not need isolation precautions so I would assume not infectious anymore but don't quote me!
Why don't we give her a nursing license back too!!!!! This is ridiculous!
So how is peritoneal dialysis? Anyone?
I work in a subacute ventilator unit and we have a full time RT on at all times - sometimes even 2! It is great!!!!!!
Doctor really? Hahahahahahahaha
Wow is that all we nurses do? My day consists of assessing patients continuously watching for signs of worsening condition! When a code happens pumping on someone's chest when their heart stops and giving them breaths with the ambubag! When and if the patient passes away having the responsibility of telling the family their loved one has passed! Suctioning patients who have trachs and vents, giving them their meds. We are the eyes for the dr if we don't see it by our assessments and let the dr know patients can die. Really it sounds to me that yes you may make plenty of money but you need to educate yourself on what the job description of a nurse is!!!!!!
Wow yea I have a patient that does this almost every single day:-(
We put it back in as well
All of my patients have GTubes/Peg tubes and we do instill air and check residual before each flush - I would have contacted the Dr as well and held the feed!
Interview today for med/surg floor and I'm so nervous. I really really want this. I'm currently in a SNF!
PA started in SNF as new grad RN
26.14 base , 5.00 diff on 2nd , 3.00 diff on 3rd
Kay I have a dilemma - I graduated in August from an ADN program - started my first job a month and half ago at an SNF - I love it so far but I got a call to interview for a med surg position in a local hospital this coming Thursday! I'm so excited but what if by chance they offer me the job? It's 40 minutes away compared to the 20 minutes I drive now! What would u do?
