  1. Job Offer Questions
    I'm done with you. I stated fact and it's very clear. There is no point to continue the conversation with you. Law is law, plain and simple. Aside from law, it is dangerous practice for a new...

  2. Job Offer Questions
    Angry much? A subject can be debated without attacking. I simply stated fact. You may disagree with it, but you still have to follow the law. If you don't like it, talk with your law makers....

  4. Job Offer Questions
    New grads don't belong in PDN. It's also fraud, since some require you to have a year of experience. What you asked about above is typical. PDN agencies will also promise you the world, but rarely...

  5. Home health charting ?
    You should be asking your supervisor. You can't verify that we are nurses. Also, agency policy will be your answer and policies vary by agency. Good luck.

    So I'm wondering if travel PDN exists. I've done some searching and can't find anything on it. It seems there is a need for it. I've heard of people living in rural places where less nurses live....

  7. Nurses aren't maids!
    It's against my agency policy to use a phone or electronic device at work. However, we are told that we can do so if the family doesn't have an issue with it. Many families don't expect us to just...

  8. New vent, old topic
    A calendar. Write what you did on the day. Write the appointment on the date it is made for. Dry erase boards/calendars are my favorite.

  9. Agitated Pt Makes for Hard G-Button Feedings
    You stated that the child has CP. Its not a matter of cooperation. Sometimes the child can't control their movements if the CP is severe enough. If the child has anxiety, the anxiety may show itself...

  10. Very trying peds pt
    I've found that once the kid has figured out that you can't discipline them, its time to move on. The parent won't do anything unless it bothers them. The kid has no motivation to correct the...

  11. Am I a bad nurse?
    When people use those responses with me, it seems fake and rehearsed. While it may work for some people, it won't always work. When I get those responses, I usually call those people out. I would...

    What does it have to do with being in a trailer park? I've been in spotless trailers in trailer parks. I've been in the nastiest homes in the best parts of town. Please don't judge. A trailer might...

  14. Fleas!
    It would be great if you could explain why you can't leave the case. As others said, report them and get out. You are a mandatory reporter.

  15. how to peacefully resign from clients' homes without awkwardness?
    That's the truth! Hrtsnstrs, those same families/personalities end up at the hospital too. The only difference is you work with a team of people that can help you. The environment/atmosphere at...

  16. Nurses aren't maids!
    Because then the parent expects it. And it puts other nurses in a bad position. The rest of us hear "nurse supernurse does it". Its not our job and it takes away from our job. We are there to monitor...

  17. Old wives tales
    I've done stuff like that before. When the room becomes intolerable, things temporarily get moved from the room. I love air freshener. But there is one that smells like cheap mens Cologne. I've...

  18. Am I a bad nurse?
    That's why experienced nurses tell new grads PDN isn't for new grads. They don't listen until its too late. You signed a year contract? I haven't heard of any reputable agency requiring this....

  20. Terrible Twos?
    Omg. Locked you out? That's messed up! I've had my share of the terrible twos. They turn in to terrible threes and so on. Its usually bad parenting. The parent feels guilty or bad for the kid and...

  23. Old wives tales
    I was also told that if the kid has a rash to let them sit in the sun for a while. They said it will even out the rash on the skin so it goes away. I'm thinking it just makes them sunburned and the...

  25. Walking into a mess
    I disagree to an extent. Parents should be parents. But as parents, they accept that they must meet the needs of their child. If they are leaving milk in the tubing and then using it hours later,...
