Today I realized that I am truely a psych nurse! I transferred a patient to ICU after she became extremely tachycardic and nonverbal- most likely withdrawal. When I was giving the ICU RN report on my patient I heard him ask, "what is her axis 1?" So I responded, "Psychotic Disorder NOS" thinking nothing of it. I realized something was off when he burst out laughing. It turns out that he had asked me what she had for "acess" meaning IVs. Oops.
