what?! fergus, are you trying to tell me that you are prepared to risk a [color=lightblue]baby boy's future gender-based security, by wrapping him in a pink blanket, just because you think saving his life is more important? boy, i hope you never look after my
steph, i like the idea of an etiquette report. the more i think about it the more ideas i have for a course:
day 1. listen, look and learn
: how to receive handover without being strangled
day 2. have a clue
: how to give handover so the oncoming nurse knows the important stuff or
if i have one more handover where i get told that the patient didn't eat the peas but really liked sweetcorn, but not about the central line, sepsis, and surgery in the morning, heads will roll!
day 3. gather ye info while ye may
: how to look professional, or
how knowing why your patient is having hydration, and what their latest bloods are not only help when ringing for new orders but also enhance your patient care
day 4. keep it clean
: appropriate language in the common areas or
patients don't want to hear about how a three-way was the high light of your weekend
i have dozed off while giving handover after nights, i grant you, but i pay attention when i'm getting it
sorry fergus - i think i hijacked your thread!
