  1. Low NICU census

  2. Policy regarding Kangaroo care/Breastfeeding and MRSA

  4. Antiobiotic delivery via iv pump in NICU
    Even Vanco and Ampho?? :eek: I hope not! I've been in NICU for 10 years and have always used syringes to administer IV meds. Any facility that doesn't needs to update, IMO.

  6. Nurse arrested over saline hospital deaths
    Good idea. I post nothing about work on FB and don't list my employer or even city I live in. Prospective employers can also look you up on FB and see what you're up too. Those party girl pics on...

  9. Nurse arrested over saline hospital deaths
    We obviously work in different environments. I have seen co workers, "counseled" for posting about how bad their day was and they really need a drink. Another time it was a nurse posting a picture of...

  10. Nurse arrested over saline hospital deaths
    Wondering how she tainted the saline vials so no one could tell they were compromised and how she kept her job after posting a picture of herself chugging a bottle of wine? My a$$ would have been on...

  11. I didn't get the NICU job...what do I do now?
    You sound over qualified for staff. Are they afraid you may up and leave if something administrative crosses your path? Try for something else in WH and let the NM know you are still interested in...

  14. Research for NICU Tourniquet
    Another rubber band user. The problem with something like a velcro band is that it can only be used for that one baby(infection control) and then you run into cost.

  16. Securing ET Tube
    I would say with the Neobar, the tape does not need to be replaced that often because it is far from the baby's mouth and won't get secretions on it. If placed properly and secured well, the tube...

  20. Any 22 weekers out there?
    I'm sorry, as much as I agree with some of what you said. I have to call BS on this. a 23 weeker has a 70% mortality rate and of those surviving, 46% will have severe to moderate disabilities. Your...
