  1. Insulin drips patients on L&D

    It sounds cool!
  2. Perinatal Monitoring System

    I have used Phillips wireless monitoring system and I think it works great!
  3. Insulin drips patients on L&D

    Anything over 100? Woah, I'm used to two over 120. Running an insulin drip with six patients sounds stressful! That sounds nice! We would use a chart and would need a double check from another RN if we maintained, increased or decreased.
  4. L&D - is it a good place to start?

    If you want to get your foot in the door and get some experience working with babies L&D would be a good place. Depending on where you work you may get very little or a lot of experience. It depends on how many resources you have. It sounds like ...
  5. Signs of chorio?

    This is from UptoDate: A presumptive diagnosis of IAI (suspected triple I) can be made in women with: ●Fever – ≥39.0°C [102.2°F] or 38.0°C [100.4°F] to 38.9°C [102.02°F] on two occasions 30 minutes apart, without another clear source PLUS one or more...
  6. What is a previn?
  7. Documentation document

    As a travel nurse, when I get my two or three days of orientation I take as many notes as I can during that time on what is required as far as charting, where to find emergency items (crash cart, precip kit, hemorrhage cart), where phone numbers are,...
  8. Hooking up epidural line

    Thanks for your response and I agree with you. The fact that this is an expectation is ridiculous. Especially with no policy.
  9. Hooking up epidural line

    Not everywhere practices this way ?
  10. Hooking up epidural line

    It's all fun and games until something goes wrong and then the nurse is to blame. If I hook up to the patient I am the one administering when i wasnt involved in anything except pulling the med. Also, anesthesia refuses to review pump settings with m...
  11. Hooking up epidural line

    This is Florida. I havent seen any CRNAs but they have AAs that do spinals in the OR. I would be okay with doing it IF they had a policy or if I was backed up by the BON but when I called the BON they told me that they don't have guidelines on epidur...
  12. Hooking up epidural line

    I guess I should clarify one thing. When anesthesia brings the pump and med into the room the pump is already running/medication started. So if I am the one hooking it up to the patient then i am administering the med is my thought on things. Thank y...
  13. Skin to skin after delivery

    The hospital I came from had a goal of getting the baby skin to skin within 7 minutes of delivery for a c/s and immediatley for vag. We didnt use a pulse ox for monitoring. If the baby was looking blue or like it was having a hard time transitioning ...
  14. Hooking up epidural line

    If you are initiating an infusion in my eyes you are the the one that is allowing the med to get to the patient. Initiating a med is giving a med and I am the one giving the med if I am hooking it up. The med would not reach the patient if I didnt ho...
  15. Hooking up epidural line

    Murseman- Some of the anesthesiologists are extremely stubborn and just flat out refuse to do it and will say its not there job and we can do it. I talked to my director about it and she said that I can refuse doing it and notify my charge RN and dir...
