RN OR Peri Operative; from
7 year(s) of experience
OR Peri Operative
I have a question. I was called by my job saying a nurse called off for her on call shift tomorrow and that they are mandating me to take it and I will have to go in they have scheduled cases (OR). Is his allowed?
I'm already going to be on call Sunday during the day then working Sunday midnight.
I had plans tomorrow and was not prepared for this to happen. Extremely upset. Any insight?
I'm a hospice RN and last night I received a call from the patients daughter stating her mom had blue urine, and to prove her point she sent me a video of it, and it looks like blue kool-aid. Has anyone ever seen blue urine and if so what would be the cause if this. Obviously with her being a hospice patient we are not seeking treatment or doing any testing. She is not taking any medication or eating anything that would cause this. I have never seen anything like this before and was curious if anyone else has seen this? Can't wait to hear what you all have to say.
Thanks so much for your thoughts and ideas on this. I will definitely make sure it is listed as clinical experience and I'll try to keep it brief as well. Thanks so much I appreciate it.
I'm trying to critique my resume, I'm having a hard time getting any job offers. I have heard people say that you should include clinical sites and hours in your resume as experience. Is this true or not? Do you include it in yours? I appreciate your advice.
Just wanted to say hi and congrats. I was in the first year LPN-RN (2009-2010) program at AH. Good luck, it is hard work but worth it in the end If you have questions let me know.
This thread is awesome. I read every post and I took my nclex-RN the other day and because of this thread I was able to answer some questions I wouldn't have had the answer to and I passed my exam Thanks so much for posting this thread and those who gave great stuff to remember.
CONGRATULATIONS!!!!! you just gave me total confidence that i can do this also bc i also failed 2 times and will be taking again in a month GOOD FOR U!!!
I got the good pop up!!!
congrats RN!!!! I failed my first time and will be taking it again in a week Do you have any pointers to give me, that would be great! I have been doing kaplan qbank questions, hurst review online and proritization book from lacharity, do you know of anything else that could help me? Thanks so much, please pray that I pass this monster test.
god bless you!
my other 2 times i failed with 265 questions each time. today i only had 119 and just did the person vue trick and i got the good pop-up
i strongly advise you to see either your pcp or surgeon asap.
it sounds like infection, and should trust your instincts.
No, it's not that it's contraindicated. However, IV Dilaudid is no longer an order option for patients on med-surg floors at several hospitals in my area, as I described in my posts above. It can only be given in a critical care environment.
Only IV. The rationale is ... q 30 minute VS and continuous pulse ox monitoring. The chole patient, as in the OP's example, would never have had IV Dilaudid as an order option where I work unless for some reason they were in the unit.
As I said ... once upon a time in the ER I routinely gave 2mg Dilaudid IV and sometimes even 4mg. But after sentinel events ... everything changes.
OP, I take it you are home. I hope your pain is manageable, PO medicated now?
So, I am understanding that you didn't get a chance to go PO prior to d/c? What if you got in the car and by the time you got home, were in so much pain that you had to get taken back in through the ER? There is a crappy readmit ding for them!
I would not deal with nursing staff. I would just call my surgeon. That is the way I roll. I called my mom's surgeon in his car to notify him of some really crappy nursing (long story that you just wouldn't believe). He was @!*^ as well, and that was that. I just don't care that I am a nurse. I just don't care for chain of command because SUPER crappy nurses = SUPER crappy nurse management. The corporate girl comes out and I get it the heck DONE!
Why did you wait for an hour? Maybe they were testing you and since you didn't call back for that long they assumed you really weren't in pain? Stranger things have happened.
Now is the time 'that annoying family member' would have been useful!
[Edited to add] - That aide is on some kind of power trip. She is commenting on something that is beyond her scope. She needs to be dealt with becasue she might have been feeding the nurse false info. It's the nurse's fault too - but don't forget about the aide's contribution. What a piece of work!
