    My MIL did the same grimace with her last breath. It still bothers me that it may have been pain. My intuition tells me it was when her heart stopped beating. She passed quickly after that as it...

  2. My one big issue
    This issue is one of my biggest gripes with this profession. The problem is that the majority of nurses will just be "ok" with not getting breaks or a lunch and chalk it up to the profession. That...

  3. Didnt attemp CPR to a rigor mortis patient
    I can't imagine if someone performed CPR on a person with a DNR and (although rare) the pt survived, brain dead and in a vegetative state for the next 5 years. THAT would cause a pretty good...

    In 2007, I applied from out of state. I didn't receive a call back until about a month before I graduated. I was a little afraid I was moving without a job. I had a phone interview (team...

    CWI will be a great opportunity to knock out some pre-reqs for a lot less $! In the end, all that matters is the kind of nurse you are! Good luck in your education!

  8. Relocating to Boise
    When I moved here, 2 days after graduation, I started at St. Lukes in the NICU. My pay was pathetically just under $20/hr plus differential. I know it is a little higher now. I wouldn't expect...

  9. Changing requirements and a couple other questions
    I get a lousy $.20/mile (but can write off to federal tax rate), I don't do admissions yet (others cover this) but I don't see the harm in a FAST scale (I only do them on dementia routinely), and...

  10. Hospice in an ALF and HIPAA
    Clear Blue, well written post, thank you for your reply. The third and forth paragraphs in your original post are what I was referring to, as so many on here, for some reason, assumed my original...

  11. Hospice in an ALF and HIPAA
    I am so done with the spin some of you are taking on my original question. OTHERS have assumed that I meant that SNF "don't care for the whole family" and that "hospice is the only one that needs...

  12. Hospice in an ALF and HIPAA
    I would guess it is a mix between some being patient-centered and others family-centered. The one I'm talking about has nothing about family mentioned in their marketing. It is all mentioned as...

  13. Hospice in an ALF and HIPAA
    OMG, once again... I am explaining the role of HOSPICE not hospice vs SNF! Hospice provides FAMILY CENTERED CARE! Maybe chiropractors and dentists do to, I have no clue! The SNF for the pt made me...

    RNCM do have access to the hospice file, all disciplines, and CoPs require an IDT meeting Q 2 weeks to discuss the patient and family centered care. I am the team leader and therefore play a large...

  15. Time Consuming Facility - Suggestions?
    Thanks duskyjewel, it is the admins that like me being the RNCM. I'm not in touch with the owners at all. I would fear our hospice would be banned if I complained, questioned. You were thinking...

    Where did I ever say that only hospice cares for the whole family, etc? And where did I comment that "maintained" this view? This is the problem with boards. You got offended by something that "I"...

  21. Hospice in an ALF and HIPAA
    Wowsers, certainly didn't mean to have that read into so wrong. Definitely sorry if I offended you two. I re-read my post to see where I mentioned that SNF nurses only did tasks. I don't feel...

  22. Hospice in an ALF and HIPAA
    Hospice cares for the family, not just the patient. I totally messed up by asking about ALF, as my concern is a pt in a SNF, but it does carry over into those in ALF's. There just seems to be a lot...

  23. CFCN Foot Care Eligibility Changes
    They aren't "vastly" different routes. My ASN didn't include a chemistry class, stats, research, or community health. That was it. In my city, the ASN's were hired over the BSN's d/t the EXCELLENT...
