    Oh for pity's sake! Don't you think I'd know the difference? This woman was the very definition of WASP!!! As for the narcotic thing. It was the last stunt in a series of things she had done to...

  4. What is bullying then?
    Well of course! But in this case she was pretty open with her cronies about doing something to "get it fired". And I wasn't doing anything to suggest that I was diverting.

  5. What is bullying then?
    Case in point. Same co-worker, different days: 1. Rolls her eyes at everything I say, constantly critiques my work. Makes snarky comments and refers to me as "her" or "it" when speaking to others...

  7. Accessing Ports
    I totally agree with this. Although it seems going slowly would be less painful it just drags out the pain. I don't make a production of inserting the needle. Seriously, I worked once with a nurse...

  8. Unsafe ED
    Please consider having the mods edit your last post. The internet and this forum are not nearly as anonymous as some might believe. I'm afraid your accusation against this hospital, while it may be...

  9. Accessing Ports
    If your hospital has an infusion center or oncology lab they would be an excellent resource for you. I train people all of the time.

  12. No worries USA.  Only healthcare workers will be exposed to ebola.
    I think I've managed to read every post here but I'm still going to apologize in advance if I'm repeating anything. I work with an ID physician and we had a very interesting conversation today. The...

  14. How should i round this based on the given rounding rules?
    Actually, there are many pumps that allow you to do this and with infants and children it's important to have this ability.

  15. New nurse and critical patients
    You are absolutely correct and I completely agree with you. What I'm trying to communicate to the NEW nurses here is either utilize your facility's protocol book or get a clear order. This is not the...

  16. New nurse and critical patients
    Yes but we are talking about new nurses here so we have to be clear. I don't want a new grad thinking it's okay to google a med for the correct dosing.

    Well you did go on about the backward thinking, old-fashioned hospitals that didn't follow EBP. Yes, see above post.

  19. New nurse and critical patients
    What poster said they wanted to be micromanaged? It certainly wasn't me. All I said was that in absence of protocols (which are defacto orders) no nurse should start a drip without a clear order....

  20. New nurse and critical patients

    And just to be clear, protocols ARE orders so I'm not asking for the research on protocol-based nursing care.

  22. New nurse and critical patients
    Hey now! Not every hospital that doesn't use protocols is old-fashioned, not forward thinking or don't use EBP. Maybe they don't have the money for departments dedicated to evidence-based practice....

    Not every hospital works from unit protocols. And seriously, you have physicians ordering a drug that they don't know correct dosages?!

  24. New nurse and critical patients
    And as a nurse you should be aware of your scope of practice and abide by it or else you won't be a nurse for very long. Listen, I'm not an idiot order follower. I used to RUN codes. I know...

    That is sooo wrong in so many ways. Believe me, if the patient went south she would have thrown you under the bus so fast your head would have spun. NEVER, EVER, EVER let a physician do that to you....
