I just accepted a position on a nephrology floor. It is completely separate from the dialysis department in the hospital. It is a medical floor and gets some of that overflow because it is all private beds. I'm wondering what the experience for nurses have been on these types of floors. I am working days so I'm expecting things to be a little hectic, but I'm very excited :) ANY insight is appreciated.

Thanks so much!

Do the dialysis nurses a favor and "Do Not" give the dialysis patients a water pitcher!!!

Have them ask for something to drink so it can be monitored.

I always throw their water pictures in the trash as soon as I see them on their bedside tables....
