I have a friend and coworker of many years who was actually born as Pearl Harbor was being attacked. I'm surprised she didn't correct you!
Well, I work at St. Blank Hospital, "Where Babies Come From." Apparently, the way it works is you decide you want one, then stop by on your way home from work (at your convenience, and when the time is right FOR YOU) and pick one up.
Since you no longer work with this person, it's not your issue anymore. There's no need to 'help the staff out.' That is being vindictive and could cause you to lose your present position. I say let it go.
Yes, prayers and many thanks to all who served, were wounded or gave their lives so that we can live in a free country.
If your goal is to be a nurse then you'll have to go to nursing school, better sooner than later.
I refuse to allow fear to rule my life.
I may have posted this before although hopefully only once! I was admitting a lady who had a very long list of ailments and multiple surgeries. She said she recently had her 'prostrate' removed. I said No, women don't have a prostate and she said, Wait a minute, this is the wrong list. I think that was my husband!
I don't think patients will ever get an opportunity to comment on the OP.
The only way to find out is to refuse. Be sure to let us know what happens.
That is an incredibly bizarre question.
I did something once that I won't go into here and could not escape. I had to confess it to the pulmonologist. He stood there for a long time just looking at me and finally he said, "Hold out your hand." I did and he gave me a tiny little slap on the back of my hand and said, "So don't do it again, okay?"
I think your first mistake was in asking her if she'd "mind" bringing towels and wrapping the IV site. It is your responsibility as an RN to delegate a task to assistive personnel. Your license allows that. I'd have said, "I need you to bring towels to Room 16 as soon as possible so the patient can take a shower." Then follow up when you can to make sure that was done.
You can use a fracture pan but you will need the assistance of another person to support the hip.
I've been doing this 38 years, all in CVICU/Open Heart. Never killed anybody yet nor do I expect to. I'm not out here to kill them, nor am I stupid enough to do accidentally.
Yep, adequate staffing and everything else would fall into place.
