    We wedge the balloon, get pawp recorded, slowly deflate balloon passivly, once fully deflated and no wedge tracing, lock stopcock, detatch syringe, expel the 1.5cc, reattach the syringe which is now empty to the closed off balloon port.

    No matter how hard you try to leave it all at work, your a nurse every holiday.
    PS. none knows you stuffed a decubitus the day before you stuffed that turkey.

    I just graduated a BSN program and have been working for 3 months. you learn nothing in nursing school compared to when you get a job. good luck. and make friends with your teachers.

    its nice but, NO its too much labor and direction following. and you don't get the general respect you deserve.

    I have researched but am still curious. I would like to know the roles of psych NPs either through your encounters with them in the work place, or through personal experience. everything i search comes back very broad and i am not satisfied, but I am interested in specific job descriptions and general feedback on what it is like. Thank you for input.

    How do i know if pmhnp is right for me. I work on a medical/behavioral unit and really like the psych aspect and am considering psych np school. is this enough experience to go through with the pmhnp. also, does anyone suggest shadowing a psych np? is so/or not; Why?

    mh issues make it more difficult to recover medically. I work on an inpatient Medical/behavioral floor and I've noticed that mh is just not taken as seriously. we have a psychiatrist on board and everything. I think that health care is so driven towards length of stay, tangible recovery that there is no place for mh to be sufficiently dealt with. Everything is too focused on how to get the patient in and out successfully and for the least amount of money. There needs to be more serious outpatient settings that can help this population. But then there is not funding for things like that.

    in this particular situation a 120lbs female nurse was being choked by a 230lbs man who had just been transferred from the ED who had taken pcp in the past 24h. another nurse, a male nurse physically wrestled his grip free and was able to defend himself in a small room long enough until security arrived.

    I meant additional payment as in nurses being trained and holding a security role. I was just throwing around an idea. but thank you for the input from you both.

    On my unit a medical/behavioral unit, there have been a few instances where male nurses have stood up to patients for protecting fellow female nurses. one time the male nurse had to physically intervene in a serious situation where charges were pressed and that intervening nurse had to goto the ER to be assessed. during processing of the event, HR made a comment to the male nurse that there should be at least one male nurse assigned to the unit per shift for situations such as these. If this were to go though, how it this fair to the male nurses who now have to spend extra time and effort in worrying about the security of other female nurses and other staff.
    -Is this sexist
    -is this a fair proposal without additional payment
    -should male nurses formally play a part of a security team on certain units

    I am new to this site and thank you. These are the exact things I need. As a student, I interact with mainly students and teachers. Its good to be able to speak with others not so closly tied to undergraduate education. Thank you.
