  3. Typical med-surg floor or speciality unit for first RN job opinions?
    Personally, I'm a fan of getting the general med/surg experience under your belt before jumping into a specialty. Most nurses that I spoke with when I was in school recommended this and I'm glad I...

  6. HIPAA violation?
    That's what we think, too, that the patient self-disclosed both the name of the hospital and why she was here. The nurse was fired over this, with their reasoning being that she "confirmed" the...

  8. The most ridiculous birth plans you've had the pleasure of reading
    I was a birth plan mom, too, but my excuse is that I didn't know what WAS normal at my hospital, so I just spelled out all of my preferences. And yes, they were just preferences and not demands. ...

  9. Fully drain distended bladder?
    Let me reiterate that this wasn't my patient. The patient was non-English speaking and it appears the day shift nurse wasn't very thorough in her questioning of the patient during her assessments. ...

  18. 4540 or 4580 for end of pregnancy?
    I'm lucky in that I've only been out of school for about 1.5 years (May 2011) and we used APA for our papers then, but I have to say I'm NOT looking forward to having to use it for discussions, too. ...
