  1. Physical Violence Against Nurses
    We had a consistantly violent resident, sent 3 employees to the hospital, and we requested he be moved to a State psych facility. Finally the DNS walked in his room one day and he broke her nose. ...

  2. Never placed an IV!!!!!
    My school taught IV placement and I put a few in during clinicals. However, that was two years ago and I haven't done any since. I'm thinking it's a perishable skill because I remember the basics...

  4. Reading Scripture to a Patient (from an Atheist)
    Derailing my own topic. I absolutely LOVE Saucony shoes. I will not buy any other shoe for running or every day wear. Sorry, just noticed the username.

  5. Things you'd LOVE to be able to tell patients, and get away with it.
    It's nice that you've come to visit your grandmother for the first time in six months. Instead of spending your time critiqueing our care why don't you actually...spend time with your grandmother.

  6. Reading Scripture to a Patient (from an Atheist)
    I don't know any atheist who gets upset by a nativity scene. The only reason it gets protested is because if it's on government property it is seen as a government endorsement of one religion. My...

  7. Pre-Pour medication: to do or not to do
    According to the rules I don't. According to reality I do. But to pour for someone else? Hell no. Even when I prepour it's just stool softeners and vitamins. Never narcotics and I don't even...

  8. I feel so incompetent!
    Stayed over my shift yesterday and needed to call a critical INR. The MD asked me why the patient was on Warfarin in the first place. My mind went blank. I literally couldn't even think of why...

    You can either sit there and let the giant wave of life wash over you or you can get on your surf board and ride it.

  10. Reading Scripture to a Patient (from an Atheist)
    There is past history from this patient trying to just "talk about jehovah" with me. Having grown up JW I full well know how the religion operates. Being raised in a cult can give you a unique...

  11. Reading Scripture to a Patient (from an Atheist)
    Thank you for getting it. It was obvious evangelizing as the resident has no vision issues. He is known to do this with other patients as well. The issue hasn't come up again.

  12. Reading Scripture to a Patient (from an Atheist)
    So I managed to break my own rule without thinking about it until halfway through. I have a resident who is a JW (Jehovah's Witness). He's tried to talk to me about god several times but I just brush...

  13. Texas LVN shoots and kills new mom, abducts 3 day old baby
    I don't expect many 'facts' from most news agencies. But this story will more than likely be copied by Law and Order next season. Since it's Texas I don't think we'll have to worry about this...

  14. Hospice Nurse's comment.
    Even as an atheist I would not "correct" or try to insert scientific knowledge into someone elses opinion. Especially at that moment.

  15. How  would you comfort a dying atheist?
    Had a ex tell me about a patient that was in her room crying. A pastor had just told her she was going to hell unless she repented now before it was too late. Obviously, this is a wrong thing to do...

  16. How  would you comfort a dying atheist?
    Typical arrogance wrapped in empathy. If you became a nurse to "share the good news" (code for preaching) then you got in for the wrong reason. Atheists feel peace in knowing (not believing) that...

  18. How  would you comfort a dying atheist?
    As an atheist I would tell you that any spiritual or religious references I would view as you making yourself feel better. I would simply ask that I know you are doing your job. I already know my...
