    What was the med we gave sublingual for high BP? Adalat? You'd pierce then end of the capsule and squeeze the contents under the tongue.

    Oh, nitropaste? Remember that? The dose would be 1 inch, 1 1/2 inches etc. you'd measure it out on a paper patch. Oh, the headache if you got some on your finger!

  13. Full Code

    Why are you assuming someone is “at fault”? Why are you trying to assign blame to someone? A person fell, was monitored and then had a change in status. The person was then sent out. Sounds like a brain injury? Those can take hours to show ...
  14. New pregnant nurse

    If you need someone else to administer a treatment or test, ask what you can do for them while they are helping you. I hate it when I do extra for someone else and then fall behind in my work. And then find the person I helped sitting at the nursing ...
  15. Arguing Over a Patient Assignment

    You are going to start losing staff if you keep making decisions emotionally. You chose a patient that requires intense one on one care that you are not staffed for because you like her better. Will you be the one spending an hour everyday on...
