NLE and lost cases.. what to do?

Posted

Has anyone here lost his or her cases? the cases needed to take for the local board exams (NLE)? what did you do? as in really lost..there's no way to retrieve them anymore. im inquiring for a friend. please help! thanks!

as far as I can remember my classmate went back to all the hospitals she had her completion and copied the cases again.. Why did she lost it in the first place? I kept mine in the vault that time so it wouldn't be lost lol..

lol! seroiusly, a vault? well, i think she lost that notebook where she wrote her cases. your classmate, how did she know which ones were her cases of all the records? can she just copy whatevers then? is that possible? of course it should fall on the date where she had the duties. i guess thats her only way, to go to the hospital's records. she even tried calling the school already and they can't do anything about it and they wouldn't even help her think of a way.

I had some lost cases once... it wasn't really lost though... i didn't copy them in the first place... i just went to the Operating Room or Delivery Room... They all have a big logbook which they write the name of the patients, age, other info including the name of the student nurse and the name of the staff nurse and circulating nurse who handled the case. If it's impossible to get the data from OR/DR, i think she should go to the Hospital's Medical Records. She should have the dates in hand and the name of her patient. If she doesn't have those, she would be looking for a needle in a haystack... :cry: And then, if ALL things fail (ugh), request the clinical instructor to let her go on duty, and then start all over again...

When one submits their cases, they should be ones that they were actually in and written on the documentation for that specific case. To just randomly select cases because they were done on that day would be considered submitting falsified records. They are supposed to be ones that she was actively involved with.

This is something that your friend needs to take care of and worry about, not you.
