  3. very very bad day

  8. "When was the last time I wow'ed a patient?"
    Ok I guess i took it the wrong way so I apologize but I'm going to argue with you again haha. Nursing skills in an ICU or any floor can be taught but you can't teach work ethic and personality. When...

  9. "When was the last time I wow'ed a patient?"
    I think you feel as though I'm directing comments towards you or the many great nurses in the field (many that I work with). I'm not, at all. I am just disgusted by the complaining that the OP made...

    Coding someone who is above 80 or cancer filled is a terrible experience for me but it happens once a month. What people also fail to think about is how the person will be if we do get them back......

    My beef is that we did that before. We did a full neuro exam at shift change and introduced ourselves. Now we do a full report and go over orders ect and it all feels like its for customer...

  23. D-Dimers
    That's what I was saying before, the d diner may be ordered but we rarely use it. D dimer will also be very elevated in CA patients who tend to have medical icu admissions.

    From my experience d-dimers rarely mean anything anymore. My hospital barely does them, if we suspect PE the patient gets scanned. Sounds like ur docs need to implement better dvt prophylaxis
