I was recently asked to develop a Cath Lab orientation booklet and powerpoint. We are a new unit in Virginia and lacking the basic start-up manuals/policies. I am asking for information, checklists, useful anatomy diagrams, and powerpoints that I can base my manual off of. These are not to copy and paste but to use several information portals and place into a single manual.

With my orientation I felt rushed and unpreppared for call time for a while. I want any suggestions.

How long have you been a Cath lab nurse? I would be willing to share some of my information but it is my intellectual property.

I am on my second year in the Cath Lab and came from a very busy ED.
