Nursing tips and tricks: Please share.

Specializes in Medical - Surgical.

I saw this in a nursing facebook page and thought it was a great idea. Please share your tips and tricks and which specialty you work in.


If I had just weaned a pt off of Levo I would not disconnect the entire line. Especially right before I left for lunch. Problem solved 🤷🏼‍♀️ Sorry I just think that fb post was a terrible example LOL

You lost me at "leisurely lunch". Hahahahahaha!

Not a bad tip, but I tend to leave lines connected. Connected and well-labeled is even better. Some talented nurses leave their multiple lines completely untangled and laid out in a way that every drip is obvious. I like following those nurses.
