  1. Where O' Where are the wise ones?
    Here ya go ... this too shall pass. Posters ebb and flow here, just as in real life. From time to time, I realize that a poster I used to look forward to reading hasn't been around in a long-ish...

  5. Difficult family (Long)
    But if you bow out, who advocates for the person trying to die? To this old faht who never worked ICU, it sounds like your patient will code pretty much any minute. You may not have a lot of time...

  6. Difficult family (Long)
    I'm not getting why they frightened you - was it the snark they indulged in at your expense? A snarky family crowding around a full-code person trying to die ... that is a nasty situation! It...

  7. "Right" way to pulls meds from cards?
    Sounds like my cart - 24-ish residents and only one card per med. I can't imagine having multiples per med - I'd need two carts and would have to keep back-up cards in the med room.

  8. Can you get in trouble?
    There's a lot of debate over the use of placebos without informed consent. Personally, the only experience I've had was an incident in which a resident ordered the use of NS instead of an opioid pain...

  9. I Wasn't Called to Nursing, I Just Showed Up.
    Good for you, OP! 44 years ago, I started work as a nurses' aide (no CNA certificates then) on night shift in a local nursing home. I needed to pay the rent and the pay was a tad better than the...

  10. Can you get in trouble?
    To point out the obvious, we don't have a lot of information on the situation in the OP. That being said, given just the info provided ... I would hope the nurse in question got in a lot of...

  11. "Right" way to pulls meds from cards?
    Our board of pharmacy considers it evidence of tampering, like a broken seal on OTC meds. Since that board controls our license to handle narcotics, I'm inclined to take them seriously.

  12. No worries USA.  Only healthcare workers will be exposed to ebola.
    But that's what I'm asking - how do you know that their precautions weren't actually effective if you don't know the source of their respective infections? They could have been exposed outside the...

  17. Nursing and the Ebola Virus
    I have to say that this thread is a fascinating look at the survival instinct in action. To those who worked on the HIV epidemic of the 70's, 80's and 90's, this thread is a bit deja vu. Be aware...

    No flames here, Miss Rose. As a veteran of the early HIV epidemic, I can tell you that it's the cases you don't know about that'll kill you.

  24. Employer resonsibility?
