I'm a new ortho nurse working in oakland, ca. I'm finding that I learn a great deal from encountering situations/cases and complications that happen on the floor. Very different from nursing school, where clincal was limited to mostly medical patients, and textbooks. I thought it might be a good idea to start a new thread for people who have stories to share about ortho patients.
I would post one myself, but I'm new at this, so I's rather hear what others have to share
