    As someone who has spent time in management (and thus making hiring decisions), I can say this sounds a little paranoid...what manager has the luxury to say I'm going to hire Suzy over Sam because...

    It wasn't a cardiac stent that he got, it was a carotid stent. He wasn't a Cath lab pt, although the stent was placed via groin access. He didn't need the neo to keep his BP safe or at baseline, it...

  4. Hypoglycemia Mystery Theater
    I haven't checked in to allnurses for a while, sorry! But the only resolution I got was that he did go home the next day, as scheduled. I assume that means there wasn't a concern for some unusual...

  7. What to do if you disagree with the care of another nurse's pt?
    It's posts like this one that make me glad I work at a gigantic teaching facility. The place is crawling with residents, and on the medicine floors, crawling with hospitalists, even at night....

  10. I'm tired of screwing up at work
    In our facility, incident reports for lab specimens are automatically done by the lab. When it happened, I also e-mailed my manager to let her know what had happened (so I could provide the ...

  13. I'm tired of screwing up at work
    You know, I have not thought previously about possibly not needing an order for a drip started in the OR. If that's the standard in our facility (and I will need to find out!), then I guess all of my...

  16. Interest in Nursing is wavering

    The neo was actually started in the OR, but you have the idea, it was obviously something the service wanted, and they didn't need a written order at the time it was initiated because it was in the...

  19. Nursing Judgement does not equate a Nurse's judgement

  21. Why do nurses constantly say they don't hire ASN?
