  4. What's the weirdest name you've heard a patient name her baby?
    I think the car brand Mercedes was actually named after someone's daughter Mercedes. It's a pretty common Spanish name! according to Wikipedia, yup, named after a daughter:...

  6. Keep my patients out of the hospital!
    It seems as though all of my patients are winding up in the hospital! I'm newer to home health, it's been about 5 months; I've been a nurse for over 4 years. I am case managing under supervision. ...

  10. How often should someone get a TB test?
    If you just had your test administered today, you might have a little redness and raised area until the irritation from the injection subsides. What they look for is induration (hard and lumpy) at 48...

  11. Young female patients
    The OP's situation has not much to do with the male clinician, and a whole lot to do with the emotional state of the female adolescent patient. Adolescents are often extremely self-conscious of...

  13. cytotec question
    You're right, I wouldn't put oxygen on if the FHR was reactive. The mask is a tangible reminder to mom that all is not well right now, and can increase her stress level, which certainly doesn't help!

  14. cytotec question
    This is why I hate cytotec. I'd do your standards for intrauterine resuscitation - turn onto left side, oxygen (unless FHR is fabulously reactive), IVF bolus if no contra-indications. If no...

  15. Ugh!  Delivered Baby On My Own The Other Day...
    It sounds like you did everything exactly right. Laboring down is for when the epidural is effective, not for when some poor mom is miserable from being told not to push. And since he got there in...

  17. who should be punished
    I see nothing here about route or administration rate, so I think that Nurse B did what she was asked to do, and did it correctly. Seconding the motion that it's NOT about "blame" or "who should...

    If this maneuver were performed on me without both the presence of fetal distress AND informed consent, then I think I would end up "accidentally" kicking someone in the face. :angel2:
