    A nurse with >30 years of experience got turned down from a local hospital because she has "too little experience." Sounded fishy to me.

  4. Main IVF solution compatibility (specifically LR)
    Yeah we have a chart but LR is not on it. It's just not realistic for me to look up each drug each time. Our internet is too slow and my patience is too short ;) I guess as a last resort, I'll...

  6. Thoughts about Neurosurgical/ MS-ICU
    If you aren't ready then don't go. A good supervisor wouldn't push you into something like that if you don't feel ready. You sound genuinely scared about it and if it made you hate nursing before,...

  10. gossip at work
    My new unit is like this too. I feel like every time I turn around, they're gossiping. It drives me crazy. It makes me feel really isolated and paranoid. I just keep to myself and don't socialize...

  11. New neighbor slipped through the cracks. What do I do?
    Yeah that's what I figured. Maybe he refused follow up care. It sounds like he wanted to get out of the SNF at all costs--not that I blame him--so maybe he had to sign out AMA? I dont know.

  12. New neighbor slipped through the cracks. What do I do?
    Oh and according to the friend, he can't even transfer out of the chair without assistance. When the friend left him, he was sitting in the couch and refused help to get back to his chair. That's...

  13. New neighbor slipped through the cracks. What do I do?

  14. New neighbor slipped through the cracks. What do I do?

  15. assaulted by my patient--one year later
    This is so true but it's also disheartening. In my state it's supposedly punishable by fining to not have lift help, but they can obviously get around it somehow. There needs to be enforceable laws.

    So you're the one I see leaving notes in the chart that say "Dr. So and So please change your charting to reflect blah blah blah?" I always wondered who that was. This sounds very interesting and...

  17. assaulted by my patient--one year later
    This is very good advice and I you are right. Once I just admit to myself that bedside nursing is not the best option for me and I can start to grieve that loss of the idea I had in my head of being...

    I'm still in ICU but it's a much lower acuity hospital. Many of the patients would be like a tele patient at my old place so the running around is definitely decreased but the lack of resources make...
