I'm currently a RN in London with 3 years ccu/icu experience. I'm moving back to Los Angeles in the next few weeks and i'm seeking some advice from fellow RN'S who have worked in this part of the world.
I'd like to know since i've never worked in a US hospital the differences in practice. I do appreciate that all patients are patients, but there are little tips or differences that exists that one could learn and be prepared for. One of my current colleagues who is Canadian, tells me where by in the UK we have 1:1 nursing in the ICU, this is not standard practice in the States.
Any advice will be appreciated.
Thank-you all in advance.
