  2. Rectal Medication
    I am enjoying this thread. Maybe we should start our own skin care company.. We could charge BIG bucks to have people come in for suppository skin treatments..

  3. I messed up on my interview, feeling terrible :(
    I would NEVER tell an interviewer that I was tired. Especially if I was so tired I couldn't answer a basic question. That makes you seem dangerous as an employee.

    You should always notify the MD if there is a change in patient status. In most of the places I have worked you were always to notify the MD if medications were held due to change in status and/or...

  7. The College Network peddling their fraud on Craigslist
    The College Network should have been shut down a loooooong time ago. I think it is ridiculous that they are allowed to keep misleading people.

  8. I lied...a story of how I outright LIED to patient's family.
    You gave that family peace during a difficult time. You should feel no guilt. That is a "lie" I would tell 1,000 times. I hope you find peace with yourself. It is these tough times that take a toll...

  9. NICU vs MedSurg
    I would go into the NICU unless you KNOW you don't want to work with those tiny little babies and/or you know the ICU setting is not for you. Both are stressful, they just are stressful in different...

  12. pt received the wrong blood
    How sad and scary. I don't see how they both made the same mistake. Has an investigation been done to find the cause? Were they rushing, short staffed, was the label confusing, or perhaps they were...

  14. The Influence of the Influenza Vaccine:
    Your facility did not mandate you receive their flu vaccine, just that you receive a flu vaccine, right? It is our job as individuals to make an informed decision about what we do with our bodies....

  15. Rejected..No Facebook?!!
    I agree with Crunch.. Don't fall into a slump. BTW I cannot fathom why a manager would want an employee to have FB other than to micromanage you in and out of work. No thanks.

  16. medication error
    I'm not sure what medical training you have had. Most "pain killers" are controlled substances. There are a few like acetaminophen & ibuprofen that are not. Perhaps you need to review the medications...

  17. Assigned to discontinue treatments not in place. Help!
    I would let your DON you aren't comfortable with this. I would start looking for a new job asap. If they insist they YES you must talk with the MD before you write telephone orders.

  20. How Do I Apologize to Professor?
    It sounds like you need to figure out priorities. Clinicals come before 99.9% of everything else going on. That being said I would not bring this up unless your instructor seems receptive to it. Good...

  21. How to deal with a slacker coworker
    I deal with this often. I'm not a manager so I cannot write them up, and our manager refuses to. So you can take it up the chain of command if it really bothers you.

    That is frustrating. I would look elsewhere at this point. It sounds like they aren't going to hire you regardless of how many times you apply. Who know why. Maybe a reference called back and did not...
