  1. HIPAA violation?
    Correct. Board = census list for our 'sister' department at the hospital. We monitor this board as it directly affects our patient census and we need to know when to prepare for admits/increased...

  2. HIPAA violation?
    That's what we think, too, that the patient self-disclosed both the name of the hospital and why she was here. The nurse was fired over this, with their reasoning being that she "confirmed" the...

  4. The most ridiculous birth plans you've had the pleasure of reading
    I was a birth plan mom, too, but my excuse is that I didn't know what WAS normal at my hospital, so I just spelled out all of my preferences. And yes, they were just preferences and not demands. ...

  5. Fully drain distended bladder?
    Let me reiterate that this wasn't my patient. The patient was non-English speaking and it appears the day shift nurse wasn't very thorough in her questioning of the patient during her assessments. ...

  6. Fully drain distended bladder?
    I'm wondering if I did the right thing... I was helping a newer nurse with a patient that had a distended bladder, on whom she had obtained an order for a straight cath. She was approximately 22...

    Hmmm... my course is now missing from Blackboard. Went to submit an assignment and it had disappeared. All TA contact info is in there, so I can't even get to that to find out what's up. Anyone...

    Who else is in? I've had some time off due to a funding snafu, so it's going to be interesting dealing with a class, a toddler, and working nights.

  14. 4540 or 4580 for end of pregnancy?
    I'm lucky in that I've only been out of school for about 1.5 years (May 2011) and we used APA for our papers then, but I have to say I'm NOT looking forward to having to use it for discussions, too. ...

  16. Why are there no nursing schools with built-in prerequisites?
    As others have said, they DO exist, though they may be harder to find. My program had them built in, so I was able to go from start-finish in 5 semesters. (The 5th one was for a couple of more...

  17. Fair Patient assignments
    We work a balance between acuity and #s. We pretty much get to pick our own patients on our assigned wing, which is nice. If we have some pts who are a higher acuity, they may go to the more...

  22. How long to get ATT in IL?
    Did you graduate in IL, too? If so, that kinda throws the time-to-ATT off a bit, since I was wondering about the time for people from out of state schools to get their ATT when applying in IL.
