  1. Confessions of a Hospital Administrator: I Feel Your Pain...Pill
    The abuse from drug seekers is unacceptable. In Washington there is a law about disrupting a hospital that includes yelling and shouting or otherwise threatening nurses or physicians. I am pretty...

  2. Dumping on the ER?
    The only problem I have with your story is whether the family or patient consented first to the transfer. If they were against it and you talked them into, I would say good for you; however if they...

  4. Pediatric sub-Q rehydration therapy (hypodermoclysis)
    Yeah I've been reading the history on this and it's very interesting! Sounds like subq was kind of the gold standard until flexible angiocaths and then it just went away. But from the reading,...

    In our ED, the policy is to ask about sexual activity, LMP, and domestic/relationship abuse if the female is over 12-years-old or has obvious secondary sex characteristics. I believe this is a...

  8. Is your ER using the EDIE system?
    I've been in 3 hospital systems in WA that use EDIE (employed at 2 different ones, an interview at another). For those that don't know (maybe from out of state), the hospital can choose to either get...

  10. How many Nurses had their CNAs before Nursing School?
    I went to school in Idaho. One school required a CNA for entry, but the others did not. I obtained my CNA in high school (senior year) and I think working as a CNA prepared me for nursing more than...

  12. ATI Comprehensive Predictor as a benchmark for the NCLEX...?
    I graduate in 2 weeks from my ADN (RN) program and want to take the NCLEX just as soon as possible thereafter. Our school uses ATI testing (atitesting.com) as a benchmark; I hear many schools use...

  14. New grad LPN: wondering about job prospects and wages
    Wow, that's amazing! In my area (in Idaho), new-grad RNs are only making $20-$21/hr. I think LPNs here make $14-$16/hr. Glad I'm moving to WA :)

    Aurora, I'm sorry they required you to join. I feel that is more of a disservice than anything. I think schools should be educating students about the importance of volunteer work and activism, but...
