  1. So...any Clinical Documentation Specialists?
    My situation is likely different than yours because I live on the border with Mexico and conventional wisdom doesn't apply down here. I got the first cdi job I applied for with just nicu experience....

  3. Poor RN professional conduct
    she has been busy, out taking candy from kids and announcing that Santa Claus isn't real. also, why is this in the NICU forum? Unless I missed it, I saw no mention from op that she works in...

  4. NICU and the nursing student
    Yes, 500 grams is a micro preemie. Read up on developmental care of the premature baby, and be careful when you have your hands on her. Watch the lights. Watch the temperature. Watch the head and be...

  5. A few months ago, I asked you all...
    Thanks. :) It is my intention to go back into nicu, but I'll have to relocate to do so. All the units down here are disasters, and sapped all my strength. We only plan to be here for another 2...

    Yeah, not too bad. Like a blind squirrel that found an acorn with the new job. I really fell into a great position, better than I could have hoped for. I miss the babies badly, but life is too good...

  10. Educational material NICU Nurses
    Give up the dream of trying to be a NICU expert before you step foot inside a NICU. It ain't gonna happen. Two or 3 years in a busy level 3 or 4 NICU mig​ht get you up to that level...might, I say.

  11. NICU IPOCs
    Plans of care were stupid in nursing school, and they are stupid in practice (for the same reason) because no one uses them correctly (if at all...) and no one updates them and no one follows up.

  12. Well here's something I didn't think about: secondhand pot smoke?

    The point is, you didn't include anything about baths, because you weren't trying to show that the patient had a bath habit. You DID mention the narcs, because it sets the basis for what...

  22. I thought I knew, but I had NO idea
