    So far all 13 of your posts here have been obsessing over potential body fluid exposure. You need to get help for your phobia or get out of healthcare. ...

  2. Unique Cna
    My initial thought is it's good he's telling patients he's a CNA and not pretending to be anything else. At one year into a nursing program he's barely even touched on nursing classes. There's...

  4. Kid, you made my day!
    It's possible that the family is affluent but doesn't give the teen spending money and certainly wasn't willing to fund this mission.

  5. Do you titrate drips?
    Thankfully on my unit, it's doing that with one other patient to take care of. That would make my head hurt too.

  6. Do you titrate drips?
    Yep, though one of our step down units will do art lines also. Obviously not ideal. Like I said, by the time a second pressor is started they're likely in the process of being moved to the unit...

  8. Do you titrate drips?
    But what makes an ICU an ICU? We have 1:2 ratios when doing cardiac drips with active titrating, we attend the same cardiac classes the ICU nurses attend, and we have most of the same cardiac...

  9. Do you titrate drips?
    Most of our patients have some sort of central access regardless. We have a 24/7 infensivist who can place CVL's whenever needed. Any nurse can assist with that, as it's just a matter of gathering...

  10. Do you titrate drips?
    Every step down unit in my hospital can do Levophed now. It only recently became that way. It used to be reserved for the purely critical care areas. Now it's recommended as a first line pressor in...

  11. My patient died today
    You've made it nearly 2 years without having a patient die? This patient would not have gone on to lead a happy life had you gotten him back. Sometimes the best outcome is having someone pass. At...

  12. Is anything at your work that puzzles you
    A nurse got caught diverting narcotics so now they're obsessing over checking people's med carts at the end of their shifts. If I intend to divert, I'm not gonna be storing it in my cart.

  13. Management and modified duty
    Then they can pay her worker's comp to sit at home. I do agree having you watch tele monitors seems like a good use of light duty. My job does not offer light duty at all.

  14. Is anything at your work that puzzles you
    I'm not talking about step by step guides. I'm talking about obvious things not covered that need to be standardized. How often peripheral IV's get changed. Who can suction a trach? I had an aid who...

    Why are policies written so vaguely that there's no purpose in even having one at all?

  16. Annual Physical - Does Your Job Require This?
    They give us a form to fill out. It asks about any symptoms you're currently experiencing. It asks if you have any chronic illnesses. I have type 1 diabetes and the lady that runs the employee health...

  17. Dr. On Demand????!!!!!
    I think just going over my medications and past medical history would use the entire 15 minutes allotted.

  18. Dr. On Demand????!!!!!
    I wonder how far it can go. Like it's got to be easy to fake a cough or a sore throat and get antibiotics. It's not like they can listen to your lungs or get a good look at your tonsils, especially...

  19. Bedpan? Why not a Poise pad?
    I'm confident your urinal using patient and your 9 year old daughter are thinner and far less "blubberful" down there than I or our average adult patient.

  20. giving D50 for hyperkalemia
    We give an amp of D50 pushed over 17 minutes. We'll give the 10 units of Regular IV push if they've been having high blood sugars or have diabetes. Current recommendations are that if they have...

    On another forum a member was discussing a time in the hospital when her IV occluded and her nurse shoved some sort of tool down it and wiggled it around to remove the occlusion. I've never heard of...
