  1. keep my day shift on a floor i dont have a real intrest in or go to nights on my dream fl?
    I would think that many new positons would require a time on nights. So I guess it depends on how big your dreams are! Only you can make the decision, personally I would stay on days based on how...

  2. Yellow Gowns: Fall preventative or bandaid solution?
    Our yellow socks are one size fits all, and they are sized for very, very large people. Patients are always tripping on them because they won't stay in place. But we will get in trouble if our fall...

  3. Is it possible to be successful in nursing with poor social skills?
    You sound a lot like my son (and a little bit like me, too!) I thought for a long time my son had Aspergers, but no one would put that diagnosis on him, he just didn't have enough of the traits. ...

  5. Your worst nightmare (Part deux)
    When I was a new nurse, I also had the reoccurring dream that I forgot about one of my patients, or that I couldn't catch up to all the tasks no matter how hard I tried. After a while, those dreams...

  7. I will not defend nurses anymore
    Kind of funny for a nurse with 20 years experience himself to write a post like this. Got sucked into another one of his posts last night. I'll be ignoring him from now on, just not worth it.

  8. It's not my job to pray with you.
    As a side note, the chaplains are NOT always available. My hospital only has day coverage, which does me no good at all! When I was a very new nurse, I took care of a dying man who was very, very...

  9. It's not my job to pray with you.
    I saw that post before I went to bed and it really upset me, although I felt the language used was deliberately trying to incite certain responses. Telling someone there is no God is just as bad...

  10. It's not my job to pray with you.
    i should have stated that I knew the patient was Catholic - I don't suppose it would have worked very well with patients of other religions!

  12. It's not my job to pray with you.
    I'm not really clear why you are so upset. Just because the patient asked you to pray? Or did something else happen? It sounds like you are a kind and respectful nurse, but to me your tone sounds...

  14. Why don't you just read the chart?
    i think op means she is guessing what you want in the report, not what was actually done for the patient. Maybe you should re read what they wrote.

  15. Why don't you just read the chart?
    Well, I guess I'm in the minority and agree with the op. The fine details are there, and you will be double checking anyway. Getting Just the basics in report are fine with me. My hospital,...

    Our hospital works similar, like services float to like services. We rotate based on your last pull, so the same person should not constantly be floated to another unit. i know it is the house...

  20. Nurses Diverting Narcotics.
    In the 4 years I have been on my unit, 4 people have "left" for diverting or being impaired. Two of them I was there when they were escorted out. I never suspected any of them, and I am aware of the...

  21. Nurses Diverting Narcotics.
    I had to report on a colleague once. I didn't suspect any diverting behavior and really liked the person, but the Pyxis activity was so strange one night (following the nurse) and the emr did not...

  22. Family member hurt my somewhat fragile new grad confidence
    Agree. I've been charge enough to have heard a variety of reasons families request a change. The nurse is "overweight", has too much of an accent, or not "compassionate" enough. One family simply...

    These statements made by an "educated nurse" truly scare me, I'm so glad there are nurses on this forum who so eloquently addressed these ideas. My hospital mandates the yearly flu vac. If you...

    Well, our policy is different. I was taught it is better to keep a closed system than to use new tubing for every new secondary. So, assuming the secondary is compatible with the primary solution,...
