Bob got hosed.
Those clamps are there to create "positive pressure" and prevent the back flow of blood into the line that might clot off and occlude the lumen. The procedure is to alcohol the port, connect your syringe, open up the clamp, flush the line, close the clamp just before you finish flushing all the fluid into the line , and finally disconnect the syringe.
With peripheral IV's if you are doing something like flush to check for patency, med, and lastly flush, it is only necessary to close the clamp after the final flush. With central lines you close that clamp before you disconnect every syringe.
How about you work only 8 hrs a day and leave the rest of the work till fri so that you will be coming in to work on Fri whether there are admissions or not.
You are working above and beyond for an employer that is paying you below your actual hours worked.
Do this for a while and they will get the picture.
Thanks for everyone's honest opinion. No matter how harm they may seem I'm very grateful for them. I don't want to seem selfish because I'm really not that type of person. When I took the scholarship of course I took the opportunity. But now that I'm matured more and got more experience I just want a change of sensory. I don't think that's to much to ask for. I understand that it might sound selfish but that's just how I feel honestly. If I can't find a hospital to do that then I will gladly take that job. I just wanted to see what other options I had that's all.
Unless you had an option for it to transfer to your bank account without fee's I would be livid! I can't imagine having to pay some stupid ATM fee just to access my paycheck so my employer can save a couple dollars themselves. Passing that onto the employee is unconscionable
I wanted to thank you again for being a ray of light after such a dark and gloomy process. I've taken great pride in telling my freshly graduated coworkers how the NELRP program may be changing for the good, and becoming more user friendly. Thank you, thank you, thank you. The insight you've given us, good or bad, has been greatly appreciated. If only you had found us sooner!!!! Whatever they pay you, it's not enough. Hopefully some of the taxes they've taken out of our awards goes back into your wallet!*wine
