  3. Charting- again

  8. Elective Cesareans/On Demand
    Hi, I have to say that a c/section just because it's convenient is outrageous ( be it on the pt's part or...the doc's ...) But I do support c/s for valid reasons ... I have 2 c/section...

  14. 16G or 18G for IV access?
    we use mostly 18g, some rn's go for 20g when they have a hard stick but I tend to think if you can get a 20g in, you can get 18g in as well. 16 G, too big !! Minou
