Ok, so just started a new job and on my Second day of work was asked to go do a vag exam and FFN on a preterm patient to determine if she would be admitted SROMed or go home.
When I said that it wasn't in my nursing scope of pratice it caused a bit of an uproar. There is No MD on site..small rural hospital. No residents either.
So then the managing MD went off and so did the administration of the hospital.
I am not comfortable doing exams on preterm women with the possibility of accidently rupturing them. Was I wrong to refuse?
