  1. Red flag?
    I've had 90 day reviews where the focus was more on retention, and I didn't find anything odd about it. Maybe it's just the way my current facility does things. With both my jobs at my current...

  2. The Controversy: Mandatory Flu Vaccines
    1) I used to, but found I still got a flu like illness the years I took the vaccine. Once I did it nasally, the other year I did it the conventional way. 2) My first employer did start to require...

  4. Vent:  treatment of new grads!
    Working at your current facility as an aide is no guarantee of a position. I would suggest you put applications elsewhere. Even out of state if you had to. I worked at one health system (with two...

  5. Poll- Caring Employer
    I voted for the first option. My employer has launched an incentive program that offers critical needs pay, incentive pay and mandatory overtime pay all in one if we pick up more hours than we are...

  6. 8/22 What I learned this week....
    This week I learned how depressing my old floor has become. I don't recognize anybody anymore. A lot of the nurses I worked with have left (at least 3 of them joined me in PACU) to other jobs, and...

  7. First Week - Grave Mistake!
    I'm having a not so busy day at work, and I purposely do not leave the PACU because I don't want people outside the PACU and OR to know I am not busy. Then I'll get slammed or complained against. I...

  8. Bad Lip Reading ... humor
    You should see earlier videos, which are even funnier. Especially the music videos that get the Bad Lip reading treatment.

  9. Fur Ball Therapy: Nurses Need it Too
    If I could have my dog at work with me, especially Saturday and Sunday when I'm alone, I would be so much happier. I'll even lend him to the anesthesiologists and the CRNAs so that they have some...

  10. Is going straight from nursing school to nurse supervisor a good career choice?
    Your friend is a fool and the place she manages is just a disaster waiting to happen. It will probably be in the new soon for all the wrong reasons.

  11. I handled this poorly.  What would you do?
    That works if you have a naturally husky voice, which I don't. But that would be a real boner killer, that or pointing at his manhood and laughing.

  12. What advice would you give your 19 year old self?
    You shouldn't have listened to your mother. Go to medical school, get into the pre-med track now. God bless her, but she is just as flawed as you are. Not everything she says is the word of...

  13. ixchel's 8/15 This Week I Have Learned...
    This week, I also learnt I got an A- in my class I took over the summer, to get a head start on my DNP in Nursing Informatics. Nice to know I still have it. Academics was always my strength.

    This week I learnt that even though you may have been the one to quickly alert the doctor to a complication from a surgery, the patient may not necessarily remember that, and may remember how...

  15. Help, I have questions about recovery room specialities! please!
    I think you'll be okay. And the phase 2 stuff is easy peasy, just make sure they can eat, urinate and their dressings are okay. Oh, and of course, go over discharge instructions in detail.

  16. That one random nugget of information from nursing school that you've never forgotten..
    One of my instructor's favorite number was 8,942. So she would often say "There are 8,942 ways to..." and so on and so forth. Don't know why I remember that number. Maybe it's because what I...

  17. So...What Kind of Nursing Task Do You LIKE?
    Poop is not the worst aspect of nursing, is what I always say. Oddly enough though, I like getting patients cleaned up and smelling nice, especially after they have an incontinence episode. Same...

  18. Difference between nursing informatics and health informatics?
    I struggled with this initially when I was looking at informatics programs. I looked at the University of Minnesota's DNP in nursing informatics, and University of Illinois' MS in Health...

  19. When celebs stop by to say hi
    Lame, but I don't know about exploitation. I like Kristin Wiig and Kate McKinnon (the one in the glasses in the above pic, she is even funnier than Kristin Wiig on SNL) but that was just stupid and...

  20. Pt asks: Is my surgeon any good?  Your response is...
    A lot of this for me would be situational. Most patients are not that medically savvy, and may not have had any type of surgery before. Those are the patients I will lie to about a bad surgeon, and...

  21. How Important is it that your patients and their families like you?
    Thankfully I don't have to give as much of a crap about patients and family liking me. For one, the PACU restricts family visitation barring extenuating circumstances. And the patient's themselves...

  22. Being taken advantage off-I should have handled this better
    I had a situation over this weekend that is still bothering me, and I am ashamed of myself for not standing up and for letting others cross firm boundaries. So, I recently took a weekend PACU...

  23. What did you do when you got burnt out?
    I changed jobs from med-surg to PACU weekend status. On Saturdays and Sundays I am the only person there unless I need to call in the on-call nurse. I like not seeing anybody's stupid face for...

  24. Am I the only one that's done this?
    How can one draw blood or start an IV on yourself. You need two hands to start an IV on someone else. I can't imagine the issues with starting one on yourself. I couldn't do it anyway because I...

  25. What I learned this week (7/11/15)
    I feel the same way every time a certain anesthesiologist is on call with me. I also learnt I will never ever feel comfortable working with this certain anesthesiologist and I'm okay with that. ...
