  1. Kind of a rant, sorry!
    We are a stand alone facility and we don't have rapid response, we have to call 911 or ship them out if they are unstable. He was actually pretty stable. It was "just his thing". Generally with those...

  2. Kind of a rant, sorry!
    I used to work nights at a SNF. One of my co-workers called the on-call doctor about a patient with an elevated BP. Her response was "I don't think it's that high. Just don't check his BP anymore"....

  6. What gadgets/tools do you own?
    Hemostats and scissors. I don't usually bring my own BP cuff to work but I've been pretty tempted lately. I'd like to get a pulse ox so I don't have to steal the vitals cart from the aides or wait...

  9. Math calculations
    You do not need to worry about the 1G. It is kind of extra information. You have 50mL that you need to get into the patient in 15 minutes and you want to convert that to mL per hour. So you could set...

    I wonder if you had a different person in the auditorium before the interview. Because I was told the same thing. No interviews on Thursday, 300+ applicants and 16-20 positions.
