    Med error . I’m devastated

    So what did you learn from this? What changes in your practise will you make to prevent this from happening again? That is what you should take from this. Everyone makes mistakes. That is why the eraser, white out and the back button all exist.

    Site looks weird? Found a bug? Share...

    I miss the years experience, area of expertise, etc. I don't understand the "visitors" or "followers". what does it mean if someone is following me? What does it mean if I follow someone else? I would like a FAQ area with information. I don't like watching videos - I get bored .

    Why do you love being a nurse?

    I love being a Rehab Nurse. We get pts that on admission are a 2 persons heavy transfer, or even a Boyer lift. But we work with them, encourage them, and on discharge they are walking in their own. It is so rewarding to work with someone and help them get their life back. so yes, I love being a nurse

    Policy and Procedures

    I have often said, ask 5 people how to hard boil an egg and you will get 5 ways to hard boil an egg. The process may be different, but the end result is the same. A hard boiled egg. so yes, different nurses will do things different ways. Policies and procedures are find and dandy, but don't always work in the real world.

    November 22, 1963

    I remember Regan getting shot, the Challenger explosion, Princess Diana's death, 9/11. 9/11 I was watching a morning news show after working a night shift. I had the remote up and was just going to press off when the Toronto based show said a plane had hit one of the Twin Towers and they were going live to NY City. I thought, OK, I have to see what kind of idiot would hit something that big. I figured 5 mins and I would hit my bed. I sat there until after 10:30 when total exhaustion forced me to my bed. I also remember watching the LA riots, and the Blue Jays winning two World Series!

    I didn't wake up on time and was too late to come for AM shift?

    I think every nurse misses at least one shift. Things happen. I still remember the phone call at 0730 one morning with my manager asking me where I was. I thought I was working Sat/ Sun/Mon. I was working Fri/ Sat/ Sun. Never moved so fast in my life. Got to work within an hour. Put up with some good natured ribbing for the rest of the shift and became very vigilant about double checking my schedule. Life happens. We mis-schedule. We sleep through alarms. Acknowledge that you missed up. Apologize and move on.

    You are not a crappy nurse. These things happen. It's just bad luck.
