Triages | allnurses


  1. 0 I am a fairly new L&D nurse, and didn't get much exposure to triages as I was made to focus more on labors and sections... I was just wondering what the most common scenarios you encountered with triages and how you handle them. Pretty much the majority of what I have seen is possible labors and just general abdominal pain.

    Are there any ob/ gyn nurses out there how have macros they use to remember questions for screening? I work with the army and they have a program called Asutype. It stores macro sets which can be used to help medical staff document faster.
