    I hear what you are saying and feel your sympathy.
    Now is your time to shine and be indispensable. Perhaps reconsider those shifts and availability? You can only make yourself shine!!

    I too have lurked in the background of AllNurses for a long time. I am coming out also!
    I worked as a staff OB RN for 25 years, until our department was going to implement Centricity Perinatal. I was asked to consider taking the plunge by my supervisor as the Clinical Perinatal Appilcation Specialist. I knew I was ready for an adventure and the delight of professional growth. So I studied up on Access and Excel. There were days I felt overwhelmed with the complexity of the build and implementation. But...I am very happy to report that the Staff on my unit have been documenting on the views I built for over a year now! I never have a boring day! What a delight this entire adventure was.
    Now the OR is asking if I will take thier system (PICIS) under my belt and modify it for thier needs.

    Sincerely,
    Kelly Lynn

    When:
    It's winter in Wisconsin. Grandpa needs to be taken to local clinic because of a badly swollen knee.
    I am sitting in the Doctor's clinic, half lit waiting area and gently lean back into the chair. Covering up with my coat.
    Soon I feel someone shaking me awake.
    It was one of the office nurses....asking if I was homeless.

    We are in the planning stages at our hospital of implementing central fetal monitoring. Right now our staff is trying to come up with a "Systems Requirement" document. This would define what we want the software to do for us. What data we want it it to load, capture ect. What sort of forms we would like. How it is to be stored and archived ect.
    Does anyone out there have something they had created and would be willing to share that would give us some ideas? Please feel free to email me. Thankyou.

    [quote=SmilingBluEyes]Forget the dilation guide. You know that monitor paper on your fetal heart monitor? The one-minute blocks that are outlined by BOLD lines that represent 60 sec/one minute? Well---- put your fingers on there; and guess what, that is 4 centimeters. "

    Pardon me but it is 3cm/min in the U.S.....not 4cm

    Unfortunately the insulting "Wash the Hands" campaign is spreading.
    Our Hospital has now placed the following statement on all the patient's bedside water pitchers,
    " Ask your Health Care Provider if they washed thier hands".
    At least the phrase does not single out nurses.

    I sure hope they are recording those paper strips on microfilm or computer prior to throwing them away.

    Can anyone tell me what is the length of time you could be sued for malpractice in Wisconsin? Or perhaps give me a link to follow. Need this info for presentation.
    Thankyou.

    Sometimes nurses hurry to get the admission process completed on the neonate and forget that bonding is the most important thing.

    I am researching what other facilities do to have their nurses trained in Fetal Monitoring Interpretation. I have the daunting task to delelope one at our hospital. Unfortunately there are tight budget constraints and will not allow us to send all staff to programs such as AWOHHN or the formal certification by Dr. Murray.
    Are there other programs out there? What do you use? Are there any programs that will share or allow to purchase. I just don't want to have to reinvent the wheel so to speak.
    Thankyou, Kelly
