  1. Who's medication error was it?
    Where to start? You and I know that they can't get high from INH, but other inmates don't know that. I have seen them sell antibiotics, Theophylline, HTN meds, etc for sex, commissary, and food. ...

  2. Medication Passes and Group Homes
    If you told me to sit on a rock, I would assume you were crazy. I have heard of nurses putting rice in CNA shoes, and one nurse even forced CNAs to wear wet (new) depends. My opinion- nurses are...

  3. Have You Had a Miracle Patient?

  5. Anyone Familiar with Extended Care Hospitals?

  6. got shouted at yesterday night
    I would tell on him. He not the boss. Seriously though, it's a mind game- he thinks he is in control- forgetting that his needs are now being met by the nursing staff. Once he is subtlety...

  8. I'm afraid for my pt. and afraid to go to work.
    I believe that you are a very caring person, who is extremely naive and must never work with inmates. I have worked in homes that live almost completely off that "measly" check, and will lie, cheat,...

    If I need a bathroom break, I take one. The "me time" I speak of is not for the bathroom. It is that down time for 30 minutes to just get away. Per the post I was referring to : "In nursing...

    In reply to post 146: I am not attempting to be a martyr. This issue is not a clinical issue, and cannot be solved by looking it up in a text book, or bringing up what you were taught in school. ...

  14. If you could invent nursing supplies, what would it be?
    1. A contraption that would safely stabilize those rolling veins. 2. A way to show patients on admission what the pain ratings are all about. "Now, we'll turn the machine up, and give you an idea...

  15. I'm afraid for my pt. and afraid to go to work.

  18. NO LUNCH???  NO BREAKS???   Is that common in nursing?????
    It just isn't that big a deal to me. But it is important to some co-workers, and so I work with them to make sure they can get away for 30 minutes to eat. And in return, they respect what is...

  19. Help! How do I stop blowing very good veins?
    I also rarely use a tourniquet. Good advice given to me while I was also going through a dry spell. By keeping an extremity below heart level while I get supplies set up, I found veins do not blow...

  22. A name for Computer on Wheels
    Personally, I don't believe this. Way to easy to simply explain the acronym to the patient. This was obviously some kind of admin decision. Some over-paid, possibly pompous, Emily Post etiquette...
