I think I am one of the only ones besides our PA and Dr's who use their cell phone to look up drugs (I have a pocket drug guide for nurses, and clinician drug guide and an Iv drug guid on my phone.) I think it's kind of a matter of finding out who is using their phone for texting, IE: PT and CNA and OT are most likely NOT looking up drugs when theyre in a pt room

When I first started working I kept getting these calls to the facility for this same person and thought this person must be really important! Then I realized it was this chick's boyfriend.

- 0May 22 by 2014LPNPRIDEI think part of the reason why people "did just fine" without being glued to a phone at the workplace was because information was not as accessible as it is now. I know I use mine to look up care plans, diagnoses, meds etc. so much easier than carrying around three different books that have that kind of info. I also use the calculator on my phone and notes. Just saying. I also work for a home care company that texts and emails available shifts. I like to check my phone so I can get additional shifts before they are taken by someone else. Of course I am not using my phone in a patients room or anything like that.
