  7. Politeness in the face of rudeness and cellphone use
    I kick patients out of triage ALL the time. There are other people who are waiting and I will triage them and come back to the talker later.

  8. Battery Ingestion Treatment Guidelines
    Really nice to know. We had a patient who would swallow batteries nearly weekly for years until she was judicially committed. We would send her to GI lab to remove it every time.

    This is now the standard. Hand off is not some magical thing that happens between two people. It is an exchange of information. Reading report on the computer is a hand off as long as the nurse has...

    I imagine the patient with a CBG of 27 was acting funny? Does it matter if 1 unit of insulin or 100 units was given? Given the man d50, call your rapid response, or do what you have to do to treat...

  20. ER nurses not calling report anymore...
    This is one thing that drives ER nurses crazy. I call report all the time and am told, "The BP must be under 200 or I won't accept report." So we give them something and it goes to 180 and the...
