    But why does it have to be "Too fat or not"?

    It it feels like we went straight to Cosmo instead of Scientific American.

    Whats next? "12 ways to please your doctor?"

    The problem isn't the video, it's the resurrection of the old argument that opens the door for all the same old crap.

    Quote from CuriousCNA
    So using a pad or liner for heavy wetters is ok then, as long as it's checked regularly and not left in all night. I mean I assume that all of those issues in the first two comments can still occurs in single briefs too if they aren't checked enough. So those aren't good defense topics for double briefing. I understand that it's not nice or morally right to leave a resident wet for too long, if you can change them and aren't busy then yes of course. But for the sake of bed strips and saving a roll on a stiff patient or some that are in the fetal position, a liner or pad inside the brief is acceptable. Cause there's nothing legally saying no it's unacceptable. It's not neglect or abuse (when changed appropriately)
    Oh Heaven help those patients. I can't even count the number of things wrong with this whole statement. If you are doing this, please stop. Turn q2 hours, leave total care patients' briefs open to air. You are in the healthcare business, not the "trying to get out of doing anything" business.

    If you feel that it's ok to NOT move a stiff patient or to leave them in a brief until "if you can change them if you aren't too busy" because you feel that "it's not illegal" then PLEASE quit your job immediately!!!

    Why? It's cruel and unhealthy. It causes skin breakdown, pressure ulcers, promotes UTI, yeast growth, staph infections, abrasions in the groin where the edges are rubbing against the skin. It encourages laziness among caregivers which increases the likelihood of the aforementioned complications.

    I hope your coworkers do not do this! I never even attach briefs unless they are being transported out. I just leave them open under the patient. It's not illegal, it's Basic Nursing Care.

    You need one year, usually, and anywhere that you use telemetry is usually a bonus. We take people from all specialties because we get patients from all specialties that need help.

    Another dose of body shaming.

    How about cool tips and hacks?

    For example, using a BVM on a guy with a thick beard in a code is hard. Use tegaderm to cover it to get a great seal for bagging.
