  1. Newborn pictures posted on social media?
    I'm sorry, but you are incorrect. I never stated that I wasn't bound by HIPAA or that I didn't have to honor HIPAA after the patient was discharged. I never posted that. I never, ever discuss a...

  2. Newborn pictures posted on social media?
    The bar codes on the badges can be scanned in pictures..that's why it's a big deal. I never have mine on in pictures.

  3. Newborn pictures posted on social media?
    If you would not be the type of nurse where you cannot keep yourself from posting about work related stuff on Facebook, then I would agree...don't friend them on Facebook. I have over 50 former...

    One what? Sue for what? You obviously don't work in a small area where everyone knows everyone. I frequently take care of patients that I know from outside the facility...does that mean I need to...

  5. Pregnant nurse fired for refusing flu shot
    Once again, I never stated it wasn't effective, I stated it wasn't 100% effective because every strain is not in every vaccine every year. People get strains that isn't in the vaccine...that is...

  6. Pregnant nurse fired for refusing flu shot
    Watch the video and listen closely..it wasn't a condition of her employment when she took the job. We are not discussing any other vaccine other than the flu-shot...if you want to start another...

  7. Pregnant nurse fired for refusing flu shot
    Are you familiar with pregnancy risk categories? I am wagering you do not. Considering you skipped right over that section and didn't even address it. Allow me to redirect you to the elephant in the...

    I'll be honest with you...if she is doing it with HIM she is doing it to YOU or other nurses on the floor. I would turn her <insert curse word for posterior here> in!!!! Feel no guilt!!!! She...

  10. How could I have handled this better?
    Let me clarify something..no hospital policy or nurse practice act in any state prevents you from EVER having a relationship with a patient. I live in a very small area and I have formed a handful...

  11. The answer: Is this a HIPAA violation?
    Most nursing schools tell them to use the initials...that way if the clinical instructor needs to go back and find the patient to reference the chart for grading, they can. If the assignment is...

  12. Pregnant nurse fired for refusing flu shot
    Do you have a study that shows what the spontaneous abortion rate is of a woman that has a history of recurrent pregnancy loss after they receive the flu shot? I would wager you do not. I don't...

  13. Pregnant nurse fired for refusing flu shot
    The hospitals also need to be taking care of their employees. If you want to rest on that theory then I don't think someone that doesn't take vaccinations or flu shots for religious reasons should...

  14. Pregnant nurse fired for refusing flu shot
    I am pro-vaccine, but the flu shot is not one of those vaccines. It is not every strain, it is not even accurate every year and it's a false sense of security for the hospital. Hospitals are...

  15. RNC and BC certifications...Gone?
    Well, what I am discovering is that for some areas of nursing, they offer a "certificate" but not a "certification". You can go through and pay for, modules, take a test, pass, but there are no...

  16. RNC and BC certifications...Gone?
    I am wondering why so many of the certification areas of nursing have disappeared, especially in regards to the ANCC. It's like every other specialty area has disappeared. How are nurses supposed...

  17. Can't find many NNP programs anymore - What's going on?
    One of the factors that I know of for a fact, is that NNP's are not being as utilized as much in hospitals. The use of an NNP would depend on how many medical schools and access to residents in a...

  19. Med passing question from a student
    It would depend on how long the patient had been on the meds. If it was the first time I was giving medications, I would say, "Ok Mr. Smith, I have your Plavix, etc....are any of these new?" If...

    Nurses that "pop" the top with every assessment are defeating the very reason the baby is in an isolette...all the heat is gone (no, the radiant warmer that automatically comes on does not fully...

  21. There has to be a BETTER WAY to obtain a blood sample.
    I'm sorry, but not every aspect of healthcare is pleasant and your baby has tons of shots ahead of them unless you are planning not to vaccinate your baby. When babies get hurt, they cry, that's all...

  22. There has to be a BETTER WAY to obtain a blood sample.
    Ok...this is going to be an unpopular post, but anyone who has worked in the NICU knows what I am talking about. You only need one heel warmer..I use extra tape or even a washcloth to hold it...3...

    We don't have a donor milk program and would never allow this practice. The bottom line is if you give the baby milk that isn't tested, the hospital is liable and so is the nurse. That's different...
