just a question....

  1. i'm 9 weeks pregnant and work on paeds ward, apart from the obvious chickenpox, menningitis, x-rays, T.B are there other things i should keep away from? I was told by a friend (not a nurse) to avoid D&V too. I won't be moving beds or cots either. With my last two pregnancies i bleed in the early stages till i was 15 weeks and miscarried before that. They were born healthy children. I'm just concerned as you would be.

    And stay away from chemo!!!

    Basically, you need to call up your health and safety officer, plus the infection control nurse and get them to compile a list for you.

    Good luck with the pregnancy

    Does anyone have experience with using a computerized medical record software system and doing charting by exception. Our facility went to this type of system recently. I have great concerns regarding charting by exception and a computerized medical record. I would appreciate any feedback to this question
