  1. MVI tablet
    I actually might suggest something like this. I may not say it so bluntly, but I'd point out that the use of MVI and other various vitamins frequently leads to GI upset and nausea. If they are...

  3. Are nurses able to shower after shift?
    I worked at a facility that had a shower. Only time I know of that it got used was when a nursing assistant ended up with poop in her hair.

  7. No specific training, total disorganization - is this normal?
    This actually seems a little scary to me. I'm used to management leaving nurses to their own once they are "trained", but the lack of organization and the four days of training for a new nurse seem...

  8. Too many ABTs?!
    I am so thankful that my current place of employment really pushes the idea of chronic urinary tract colonization and only treating symptomatic positive UA/UCs. Also not collecting UA/UCs just...

  11. Ebola Preparedness Nursing Survey Results
    I think some good follow up questions would be: 1. Do you feel like you understand how Ebola is transmitted. 2. Do you feel that you have the proper knowledge to use proper PPE if provided? (give...

  14. Do we serve a tray
    In this case I think an order stating 'okay to eat for comfort' and maybe a waiver signed saying he's going against STs recommendations, but then I'd feed the guy!

  16. I hate my new CNA job
    4-5 CNAs for 25 resident's is better than most nursing homes. I think it would really depend on the amount of care and tasks you are expected to give. You can always look else where. As a CNA...

  17. Girl brain dead part deux
    If she'd really made any sort of recovery there would be specialists all over the world wanting to study her. Instead the family dredges up a couple of unqualified people to provide evidence.

  18. Do you have to call your nurse manager before you call the doctor?
    I totally get keeping the pt. in the facility rather then shipping them out. Shipping someone out is very hard on the patient. Instead of making nurses call her before calling an MD and/or 911 maybe...

  24. Should high absenteeism be cause to be fired?
    What bothers me most about these policies is you still get in trouble for illnesses picked up at work. Also when you are really sick a doctor's note, hospital discharge paperwork means NOTHING. I...
