  3. While You are In Here..I May As Well Try To Go To The Bathroom....
    I'm starting to see why I run across so many posts that paint CNAs in a bad light. There is no way the CNA shouldn't have already gotten to several of your patients and toileted them. I like...

  4. Nursing with P.O.T.S..
    Hubby has this, although I don't think there was a name for it when he first got the symptoms, so he doesn't have the official dx. He has good and bad days, but has found that drinking a lot of...

  5. Just got fired-AGAIN!
    For me, my "amps" are NOT optional. I can't function without them, and I don't intend on trying to. My brain doesn't work the same way a neurotypical persons brain works, and although I'd love to...

  7. get kicked off because of med error
    Here in SC, the students work on the units with one preceptor, also. I've never seen an instructor, and they are there for the whole semester. The nurses don't ever leave their sides, though.

  8. What's your Myers-Briggs personality type?
    We are quite rare, I guess. I remember when I took this test it told me that I perceive myself to be the same way others perceive me. What you see is what you get. hehe.

  9. Voluntary Euthanasia
    I think it would be better to let nature take its course in the first place. I think there should be something in place stating someone DOES want a feeding tube, if the situation warrants, rather...

  11. how to do sheets when pt can't turn

  13. Nursing vs. CNA physical stress
    Here's the thing..... You don't need to have a nursing degree to lift, give bed baths, transfer, or toilet patients, so a CNA is always going to have a much more physical job than a nurse. ...

  15. Male patient refuses Female Nurse
    It is extremely difficult to accommodate this kind of request in an in-patient setting, I will say. If there is only one male tech or nurse on the unit, we simply can not promise you an all male...

  16. New FB messenger,...HIPAA Violations?
    Almost every app I've dowloaded has said the same thing. It's common for an app to request permission to access your photos, contacts, etc. This is due to the way the app functions. For example,...

  17. matrixcare and restorative nursing
    It's awful, I know. I don't understand why so many people are happy to accept their patient is incontinent. To me, all that means is no one toilets them often enough. It seems like a lot of CNAs...

  18. Being Asked to Come in and Work as CNA...
