  1. New roommate on precautions
    Nope wouldn't happen in my facility. If a patient has VRE the only roommate they can be paired with is another patient that has VRE.

  2. Terminal Agitation
    Lots of hugs in your direction. These types of patients are just heartbreaking. It sounds like you did everything right working with hospice and advocating for your patietn. I'd talk to your DNS...

  3. My Unit Is Bleeding Staff & Morale...Vent!
    I'd be really tempted to write an anonymous letter to the media about the lack of resources. My LTC has more working defibrillators.

  4. Do you get sick alot working as a nurse?
    Rarely. I'll normally pick up a URI once a year and maybe once every other year a stomach bug. When I first started out in healthcare I picked these things up much more quickly, but that's chagned.

  5. Foot Care
    I honestly wish that lotion was just apart of AM and PM cares, especially in the winter months. I'm seeing a lot of excoriation to backs and legs from scratching.

  6. Cdc declares flu epidemic
    I work in LTC/Post Acute and we are starting to see a lot of people recovering from influenza. We're also swabbing resident's like crazy. When I worked Friday the nurse managers were arguing over the...

  7. 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...

  9. 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.

  11. Nursing home phenomenon/ What's this?
    What are you seeing that you consider deplorable? Maybe we can give you a better view of what is going on. I've found that in most placed I've worked we've worked really hard to educate our...

  13. 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...

  14. 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...

  17. 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...

  18. Western Governors RN-to-BSN: My First Six Month Term (Almost)
    How much time do you find yourself spending on school work? I've got a toddler and work a 0.8 with 8 hour shifts. I went back to a traditional online school a couple of years ago and the format...

    If he wanted me to feed him, I'd feed him.

  20. 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!

  22. 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...

  23. 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.

  24. 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...
