- Nov 28, '12 by samadams8Quote from BostonTerrierLoverRNlolThe "wrong'est" answer would go...
I would get the family member haunting the desk in a headlock, followed by a good thorough nurse education, just as soon as I got OR to hold that Grunter long enough for a smoke break since I've been on my feet for 12 hours, and they thought it would be cute to send an unstable patient from PACU at shift change! I already missed lunch, have a full bladder, and will return in "5." Upon Arrival,...(After throwing my locater into a passing laundry basket,...
I would then go code the 97 year old "full code" chest pain patient who just started alarming on the tele monitor while I finished refusing report on the OR guy- for 15 minutes until fresh horses get here.
Then I would set down and chart for 2 hours past time to go on my 5 patients, and the code, then if that patient's family member doesn't press charges, I would like to go home and soak my feet before House MD comes on, because the TIVO is already full of stuff I missed getting called in to OT!! See ya' tomorrow.
- Nov 29, '12 by joanna73Congratulations on the job OP! Woo hoo!! Hopefully, this thread has taught you that provided you have a clear rationale for your nursing actions, there is not always one right answer, or one method of arriving at the same result. Technically, the SOB post OP or the dizzy chest pain pt could have been correct, depending on how your thought process works.

- Dec 1, '12 by DevochkaAlways A, B, C. Airway is always first. If you can't breathe, you WILL die. You can't take care of B until you take care of A. You can't take care of C until you take care of B. SOB first, then chest pain, then pain meds, then crazy family member.
