Sorry if this is under the wrong topic.
I am a final year, last ever clinical placement, two weeks in the Emergency Department. Which I am loving so far!
However, I would like to ask Emergency nurses (and others) opinion on this:
Our facilitators have told us we are not to go into a resus. It doesn't matter if you are allocated there, you cannot be involved or even observe.
I can understand that these can be chaotic, and sometimes confronting. But I don't feel at this level, about to be an RN that we need to be this sheltered or bubble wrapped.
The rational is that it isn't a great learning environment for student; totally get that but it would be great to see if I can clinically think why something is happening.
Another reason, which I also agree upon is that if that were you or your family member you wouldn't want an audience.
What are your opinions, Students in resus or not?
Thanks in advance.
