  1. Should I go to pinning?
    I went to mine, but I didn't buy a ridiculously priced pin, so they only pretended to pin me. I remember thinking it was dumb the whole time. I hate the Nightengale Oath we had to recite. I think...

  2. Rant:How NOT to be a nurse
    I'd be talking to the administrater so fast my tongue would be on fire. This isn't just bad nursing. This is abuse. Was this a normal med surg floor, or rehab or SNF? I wonder what their ratios are...

  3. If hospitals require 85% BSN...
    It would be extremely hard for a new grad ADN to get a job at a facility aiming for 85% BSN since that 15% of other nurses allowed would be going to experienced nurses who had been working there 20...

  4. Flu Clinic Work
    I always do overtime in a flu clinic at work. It's a piece of cake. The only thing I have to do were the shots themselves. It was literally jab and go. I give around 150 shots in 7 hours.

  6. What to do: ED physician brought dog to work
    Yeah, I do realize that. This is why our patients are priority for private rooms in the ED and to be admitted to the BMTU as quickly as possible, or discharged as quickly as possible in the extremely...

  7. What to do: ED physician brought dog to work
    While I do think it's unprofessional and inappropriate to have your pet at work with you, this would not be "the hill I would die on" so to speak.

  8. What to do: ED physician brought dog to work
    How do you think those immunocompromised patients often end up readmitted to the hospital? Through the ED!

  9. Your best(or worst) exposure story
    That's horrifying!!! Was all of that care covered under worker's comp? I can't believe he wasn't hospitalized sooner! How was the c diff eventually cured?

  10. Your best(or worst) exposure story
    Seriously, you're concerned because you stood in urine with VRE in it, with shoes and socks on? Yawn. Even barefooted, how is the VRE going to get through your feet? My hospital doesn't even...

  11. Be My Friend at the End
    Are you doing this now instead of nursing or as an extension of nursing?

  12. "Floating" IV
    I was never really taught how to put IV's in. The way I learned myself involved floating. It's how I've done it ever sense. I'm now one of the best at IV's on my floor. We each do maybe one a year,...

  14. Is My Thinking Flawed?
    My patients all have 5 lumen central lines. The issue isn't a lack of lumens. It's a lack of pumps. We don't keep extra pumps on the floor and supply processing is closed at night when these are...

  15. Is My Thinking Flawed?
    But I'm not talking about increasing the rate. I'm talking aboutu tiring to accurately run it at the ordered rate when we need to mix it, for lack of pumps.

  16. Is My Thinking Flawed?
    Yep, I figured that out in my third post in this thread. But still, our current practice is to run the 150 ml combined mixture at 25ml/hr, making it take 6 hours to go in, compared to 2 hours for...

  18. Abuse at school
    Again, your reading comprehension has failed you. My advice? If you feel abused, don't stick around and allow yourself to be victimized. Leave. Change programs. I'll warn you, however, that if you...

  19. Abuse at school
    What on earth does that have to do with anything? I said from what you've told us, nothing stands out as abuse. Perhaps your reading comprehension is part of why you are struggling?

  20. Abuse at school
    Of course I believe it exists. I don't just believe it exists in nursing, I believe it exists in all professions. Do I believe you've experienced it from what you say here? No. Keep in mind that...

  21. Abuse at school
    Shocking. I am also guessing they declined to do a story on the high school student upset he got a C on his English essay riddled with grammar and spelling mistakes.

  22. Abuse at school
    I seriously wonder how these students that feel like every challenge at school is an abuse will handle 3 critical or 10 med surg patients in the real world.

  23. Is My Thinking Flawed?
    I wouldn't do it with the first dose. Our patients get meds simultaneously all of the time. Some of our patients get 50 IV meds a day. It wouldn't matter if I mixed them or if they were running on...

  24. Is My Thinking Flawed?
    I'm in adult BMT. We use the buretrol just to have a way to mix the two meds together- in the buretrol. My question isn't about dose so much. It's if two meds that both go at 25ml/hr are mixed...

    40 mEq of potassium in a 100 ml bag- so over 4 hours at 25 ml/ hr- 10 mEq per hour. The mag bags are 4gms in 50 ml that we give over 2 hours when given separately. The doses weren't really vital to...
