  1. Protocol for wearing masks during even though immune

  2. When Does Life Begin? The Scientific Definition of an Abortifacient ...
    I do not declare this source invalid out of fear; I declare it invalid because it is an opinion piece posted on a news site aimed at those who are pro-life. Directly from the about us page: Find...

  3. CVOR Certification?
    My guess would be those positions are seeking nurses with CVOR experience. Probably because of orientation needs- despite having many years of experience in my current OR, I still got a 12 week...

  4. CNOR?
    Before making such an expensive investment, I would make sure you're going to qualify for renewal if you plan to keep the certification. In order to recertify, you will need 500 hours in the...

  5. Shadowing in the OR
    Unfortunately, it is nearly impossible to give you an amount of time to understand the role of the RN in the OR. Length and types of cases vary, as do the roles with the variety of surgeries. In a...

  6. Lean in the OR
    Lean in my OR meant not replacing staff when they left. Apparently, productive hours weren't high enough (productive hours defined as those with a patient in the OR; doing other necessary tasks such...

  7. Anyone else doing the LPN program at GST Boces in the Corning, NY area?
    Could be that students don't know of allnurses or of those that do, would prefer not to identify their school. Things said on a public forum can come back with negative consequences. Maintaining...

  8. ORM - Electronic Charting in the OR
    Used to use Picis before we used a hospital wide EMR. However, despite two units using Picis, the powers that be chose Epic for when we went hospital wide with an EMR, meaning everyone had to relearn...

  9. Oxygen Tank Carriers
    Either the litter/gurney/whatever word you use for it has a designated spot for it or we use a cage if we can find one for beds. If we can't find a cage for the bed, we put the tank down by the feet...

    For the most part, we just "know" who our reps are. The same people are there routinely. However, they do wear orange disposable hats (staff wear green) and have a different colored band on their...

  13. Terminal Cleaning Policy and Procedure
    You have quite a few threads asking about policies. Have you checked out AORN's Policy and Procedure templates? Also, these really need to be individualized to meet your facility's needs, such as...

  16. Verbal Read-back
    Like klone said, refer to your facility policy. I am unsure whether a JC or federal policy exists, and if they do, facility policy may be more strict. The only acceptable reasons to take verbal...

    Be willing to study outside of work hours. No, homework doesn't end when school is over. If you know what surgeries you will be on the following day, ask for copies of the preference cards so that...

  20. Stop the (Deskilling) Merry-Go-Round, I Want to Get OFF!
    Not flaming; I'm one of those 75 question passers and I thought it was far too simple. I'd rather see not only a test but also competencies required.

  21. Stop the (Deskilling) Merry-Go-Round, I Want to Get OFF!
