  2. Nurse considering law school
    So, it was worth tens of thousands of dollars, all that work, time away from things you enjoy, to learn how to protect yourself as a nurse? What kind of practice are you going to attempt?

  5. 3rd Shift Disability Resources
    What is your medical condition that makes you unable to work nights? I'm sure I could get my doctor to say I shouldn't work nights, but I don't think that would be fair. Plus, I like to be liked...

  6. Verbal Hand-off Reports - Are they no longer necessary?
    I'm in the ED now, and am able to get my charting done. Maybe it's because I don't have to waste my time playing phone tag with the floor nurse to give a verbal report. True enough about...

  7. Verbal Hand-off Reports - Are they no longer necessary?
    Do you have an example of how "a lawsuit waiting to happen" would come from not getting a verbal report? In a matter of 5 minutes, I can look up in Epic chief complaints, medical hx, meds given,...

  9. Nursing is a passion?
    People seldom have a passion for something they can also make a living at. There is some research that shows that the people most satisfied with their jobs are ones who have worked at and have...

  10. Rally for National Nurse-Patient Ratios
    I think you missed the point. Maybe "unnecessary tasks" wasn't the best way to put it. To make up for having to employ more nurses, they may employ fewer non-nurses. Nurses may find themselves...

  11. I want to learn stuff!
    Try med-surg again. You'll learn plenty and be more marketable for travel nurse positions, especially if you get tele experience.

  12. Verbal Hand-off Reports - Are they no longer necessary?
    BG, vitals, and meds given should all be documented in EPIC for you to see. If not, then that is the bigger issue. You don't think a verbal report might have missed covering important things? ...

  13. Verbal Hand-off Reports - Are they no longer necessary?
    For a verbal report, both nurses have to be available at the same time. Where the "no verbal" report process is in place correctly, the receiving nurse gets advance notice. In my case, the floor...

  14. Verbal Hand-off Reports - Are they no longer necessary?
    As many here have attested to, it's not theory, it is happening. If the process is put in place correctly, patient movement from the ED can happen efficiently and safely without a verbal report. ...

  16. Verbal Hand-off Reports - Are they no longer necessary?
    A crashing patient being emergently transferred to the ICU is a much different situation then a patient bring brought from the ED to the floor with advance notice.

  17. Verbal Hand-off Reports - Are they no longer necessary?
    Here is another good one...morphine is given in the ER, and is appropriately charted. Verbal report is given, but the ER nurse forgets to report on the morphine. The floor nurse, who doesn't review...

  18. J tip - Anyone using this?
    Yes, we use them for peds patients for IV's. They work well for older school-aged kids and teens....those old enough to understand what it is. If the patient is too young, it's just one more thing...

  20. Verbal Hand-off Reports - Are they no longer necessary?

    I would say that the issues you speak of are bigger then verbal report vs chart review/written report.

  22. Verbal Hand-off Reports - Are they no longer necessary?
    I've been a ED nurse for 6 months, abd a med-surg nurse for 4 1/2 years before that. I agree with you, that many ED nurses feel that they have it harder and they are better. I know how hard...

  25. Verbal Hand-off Reports - Are they no longer necessary?
