  1. why do so many nurses post that they love the med scanners

    I like my checkbox + narrative system. We can add comments on every section as we go. I can use the checkboxes alone to chart a normal assessment in about 5 minutes on a patient about to be...

  5. Walking from school at night with deer and no street lamps?
    One deer may not be a problem, but many deers can certainly be aggressive! In reality, OP- you're making a problem where there is none. In my experience, most three hour classes end a touch...

  9. Would you wait for Dr orders?
    Yeah, why would you give meds without an order when you had a rapid response team on the way? Only thing I would do in the meantime is increase oxygen, place on cardiac monitor if available, get IV...

  10. GI Surgery Step Down for Clinical

    Except, looking at third party opinions of this test- it's not a well validated test because AGA-IgG testing isn't specific for gluten sensitivity - another nail in NCGS's coffin. Turns out lots of...

    Gluten allergies are really just trendy. I don't think actual allergies to gluten have increased, but I know awareness of celiac has. I think the percentage of people following gluten free diets that...

    Our EMR lets your enter things as either "allergies" or "intolerances." I love this. The only people that ever enter an intolerance, though, are the pharmacists. The nurses are entering that codeine...
