  3. 15 month old getting 750mg Rocephin
    I suppose that's another thing we don't have in common as we pull ours in babies. I find Rocephin to be like syrup whether its reconstituted with lidocaine or water. I hate IM. It is so painful. If...

  7. Lateral Violence
    I was older than those bullying me personally. This isn't about age but seniority. As new people spend time in the hospital, over time, they became the senior nurses. So there is a constant cycle...

    Who are you to judge what is an issue or not? In this type of situation, the "issues" do seem ridiculous when taken one at the time. It is only when you see the whole picture that it begins to be...

    You did deal with it but not as quickly as you may have liked. Note that is sabatoging for anyone who wants to know. The fact that this man was willing to go after this employee through a patient...
