  1. No friends at work
    Also, frankly, praise from patients/family doesn't count for much, especially in an ER setting. Happy patients =/= well-cared-for patients, necessarily (and I think there was an article recently...

  2. septic shock
    That's what occurred to me, too. Can't make heads or tails of the OP's second post, though.

  3. So 39 weeks is the full term cut off now?
    Just to play devil's advocate here, as someone whose patients regularly include anything from 24-weekers to 42+-week shoulder dystocia/HIE babies, I'd dispute the assertion that mom's body and baby...

  4. Accountant want to be a Nurse
    Do you know anything about nursing, besides this vague idea that it's a stable job (hint: if you have actually been reading this forum for a long time, you'll know it isn't necessarily)?

  5. Novice nurse no-nos
    The best way to ask questions is to not worry about being annoying :up: Seriously though, if you don't know, ask. Much better to temporarily annoy someone (who shouldn't be getting annoyed, anyway)...

  6. Proper Documentation
    Anatomical position. First thing you learn in A&P. Was she asleep that day?

  7. Lowest turnover specialty
    Are you talking about specialty or facility turnover? Even if a specific floor/unit is unable to retain staff, I'd imagine that people look for similar jobs if they're happy in their specialty. I...

  10. Do you talk to yourself?
    I suppose that's the good thing about working with babies, I can jabber away and just pretend I'm talking to them :whistling:

  11. Why do some nurses come across to be rude?
    And he/she would have told you the same thing you've been told here. It's the Emergency Room; your ankle might have been painful, but there's no way you couldn't tell that it wasn't a...

  12. No personal identifyng information---huh?
    I try to always be conscious of not posting anything truly inappropriate. However, sometimes I need to just vent about work, or get an unbiased opinion on something, and thus I wouldn't want to be...

  15. I have a priority nursing question?
    PALS still says CAB for pediatric cardiac arrest, but I think the NRP guidelines are more applicable here, especially since you have a big hint (emesis around the mouth) that the problem is...

  16. I have a priority nursing question?
    If the baby is blue, he's probably not breathing, and quite possibly in cardiac arrest secondary to respiratory arrest. I'd maybe do a fast check to see if he was breathing, but would be calling...

  17. Neopuff Question
    If you couldn't grasp it, why didn't you ask the person to show you again, more slowly? We're talking about breathing here, the second most important component of sustaining a life (the first being,...

  18. Can we just agree, being honest is not akin to being "rude"?
    Confession time: I'm nearly 30 and I still almost never eat oranges unless I'm with my dad and he's peeled it for me :unsure: That's just a quirk between us, though. I promise otherwise I'm...

  19. Phlebotomy & EKG
    I think CNA would definitely be useful but not a must. Phlebotomy is marginal, it'll teach you some technical skills but I don't think it would be a game-changer on a résumé. I'd hold off on the...

  20. •	initiating & implementing change
    Tell your instructor that's a moronic suggestion, as she has no way to know who's responding to you on "social media" or what kind of experience they have, and whether it's real or fake. Tell her to...

  24. Breastmilk Errors
    You really should be taught about the risks, maybe that will drive home the point about the importance of checking. A project for your clinical educator perhaps?
