Hi All,Peds have moved to our postpartum floor, so I am new to peds. We don't have bed scales in all of our ped beds. The other day, we had an appy patient who was VERY painful and did not want to get out of bed. The only weight we had was from the ED.When we finally got him up and weighed (with lots of tears), he was 11 pounds lighter than what was recorded! This scared the daylights out of me, because all of the meds are dosed by weight. Luckily, the MD had dosed in the lower range, so with the lower weight, we were still OK.However, this should not have happened. What if we get patients with fractures, or a very painful MVA kiddo? How do you weigh the kids in your hospital? Some are light enough for a parent or the RN to hold and weigh (subtracting the adult's weight, of course). But what about a larger kid?Thanks!
