    I've got an update...same nurse tells me in report that a pt. had small amount of emesis from the g-tube of small bits of undigested food and that another pt.'s diagnosis included a large GERD and then repeated that he had a very large GERD. If she says it again tomorrow, I'm going to say, "Hey, have you measured the size of the pt's GERD. You really should measure it, so we can monitor if it changes in size." Heeeheeeheee. I'm evil.

    Just today had a staff RN,BSN (had to but that in because that's how she introduces herself; "This is Jane Smith, RN, BSN) who didn't know not to chart that she had completed an incident report on a patient fall. I think I learned in the second full mintue of nursing school to NEVER chart that an incedent report exists.

    Nanna nurse said it best, what possessed her to do that??? Some people take a little more time than others to provide excellent nurse care, I can honestly see a new grad doing this. Please, I hope you corrected her so that she does not make that mistake in the future (please say she was a new grad)

    Why is my forehead bleeding? And why are my co-workers coming at me with that jacket that ties in the back?

    Nursing= 1 part knowledge + 1 part compassion + 98 parts COMMON SENSE. If this formula is not mixed to the exact specifications then chaos will result.

    How many dumb nurses does it take to kill a patient??

    Only one.

    I still am waiting to hear what happened to the patient with the epidural who had IVP med?????

    No new grad here. This person has been a nurse for 30+ years!
