  5. Got fired for changing fluid rate
    Touche. Something's up. I just like to give people like that a chance, even if they mess up. There's a lesson and mistake everyone learns from. But of course, there's a limit to that.

  7. Why do some nurses use their titles as a big ego boost?
    Off-topic. This coming from a jerk nurse. When dealing with jerk physicians about personal health concerns, I suggest not mentioning about being a nurse. Say something else, like "hobbies" that you...

  13. Is this restraint issue a dilemma that can go to the ethical committee?
    I think the concern here is confusion and lack of re-demonstration of understanding. Pt says yes to all procedures but for an unknown reason, wants to get out of bed and pull out IV's, etc. I think...

  18. Need more inference on ethical dilemma issue regarding restraints.
    Thanks. It seems like those cases are rather very complex to have gone to the ethics committee. My situation was in Med-Surg and was not severe enough to have gone to the ethics committee.
