  1. Hi All, I am looking for some feedback. When is a sharps injury not a sharps injury? I am about to get into it with an provider over semantics. Just because it doesn't involve a needle, doesn't mean that someone wasn't at risk of a sharps inj...
  2. Hi All, Trying to get my department's first flu clinic up and running. Ages are going to run the gambit. Got through most of the initial red tape. Looking for advice/ links/ articles on how to run an efficient clinic. Any tips on makin...
  3. COVID-19 "Tylenol Test" T /F?

    So the world had turned topsy-turvy with COVID-19. My wife and kids are both home because everything has shut down. They have been social distancing, as it were, for about two weeks. The only exception is that my wife had to go to the local ER a w...
  4. Hi TNbutterfly,

    I noticed that in listed specialties, it says "disaster nursing".  How would you define disaster nursing and what sort of training does this involve?

  7. Anyone seen updated COVID-19 Fomite Survival Times

    Darn it! Spelled "Fomite" wrong!
  8. Basic Seizure Care

    Looking for information and possibly articles on basic, universal seizure care. I need to brush up on latest info. We had a patient go into her second seizure while in our out-patient clinic. All I could do was take vitals, O2 and lay her on her si...
  9. COVID-19 "Tylenol Test" T /F?

    Hi Wuzzie, Thanks for clarifying about the low grade temp./ fever. It is this kind of disinformation that we *don't* need. Yes I am sure it was a nurse. I actually got alot of blow-back from her. saying I thought she was, essentially, a hypochondri...
  10. Going home to loved ones after caring for COVID-19

    I completely understand. I am in an ambulatory clinic and we had yet to provide care to a COVID-19 positive patient. But everyone is panicking. I reassure them that I have been in healthcare for 30 years and have never had an infection that I hav...
  11. Basic Seizure Care

    Thank you for your replies. I appreciate the information. 2019 was a pretty rough year. Everyone of my three kids had a similar level (but medically different) problem. 2020 looked to be so promising then.... dun dun da..... COVID-19! Best, T-Wa...
  12. Why would this be used vs. usual?

    Hi All, New to helping out in an Ophthalmology clinic. Looking to understand why the clinic uses this closed iv catheter. What is a "closed" catheter, anyway? I have included a link (below) of the BD Saf-T-Intima™ closed catheter. https://www.bd.co...
  13. Why would this be used vs. usual?

    So when you say "angio" what does that mean? A specific product or is it a category? Thanks! T-Wave
  14. Why would this be used vs. usual?

    We use a 25G x 3/4" BD Vacutainer push button blood collection set when we do a regular fluorescein angiography. Why not use a closed catheter for that as well? T-Wave

  16. Why would this be used vs. usual?

    Thank you for your replies! I totally agree about the needle part. That cover that is supposed to slide down seems a bit hinky. I looked at the Nexivas. They do seem to be a much better design. I haven't seen those before. I will see if my hospit...
