  3. Sweet-ease
    Same as NicuGal, we have to get it out of the Pyxis, scan it and sign off with another RN. We use it mainly for lab draws.

  8. What nipple do you use for thickened formula
    We don't thicken breast milk. With thickened formula we use a fast flow or a crosscut. We also use the VentAire bottles for thickened feedings, as it doesn't take as much work to bring down the...

  10. Please help with Delee suctioning :(
    We don't routinely delee suction. And when it's necessary, the NNP or neo usually does it. You're right in asking for someone else to do it if you don't feel comfortable. It's more than "you...

  12. NICU monitor event review
    No, we have nothing like that in place. I just don't see the advantage of something like this? How do you know if these events were even real if they weren't witnessed? And also, what were the...

  13. Hepatitis shots given to micropreemies
    What Jolie said. If they're not exposed we wait until they are 2 kg before giving them the Hep B vaccine, if parents consent. If they are under 2 kg at discharge, they get it in the peds office.

  15. is it considered abandonment if no call no show?
    A no call/no show was automatic termination at the grocery store I worked at in high school. If they don't have the courtesy to call in, because they're fed up with the way they're treated, then...

  17. Fictional vital sign charting
    I'm glad all my kiddos are on monitors that interface with the computer charting. Relying on someone else, that could potentially "fake" vitals, is a control that I don't think I could give up. ...

    The NCLEX is recognized in all states, the states that aren't part of the compact states require additional qualifications (i.e. CEUs) for licensure in that state; so the NCLEX is good in every...

  20. Tough day as a temp worker interacting with nurses
    I think if you were to look at each of these rude/impatient nurses personally, even outside of work, you would find an unhappy, impatient, and rude PERSON. I doubt they're a happy person and a joy to...

    They didn't do emails the year I received my award, either. The only notification I got was the award letter and I didn't receive that until September.
