    Why do RNs choose to work in nursing homes?

    I worked in a nursing home for 6 years as an RN. I did it for several reasons such as it was a 15 minute commute versus driving an hour to work in a hospital. I also lived in a small community and knew most of the patients from childhood. I even got to take care of my grandparents! Yes, it is a lot of work and can be stressful but I loved it! For me, the personal connection and time spent with my grandparents was invaluable.
  2. I work as a private care nurse for a kid that is trach/ventilator dependent. His family likes to take him out but he only has an HME to use for humidity while out and his secretions get very thick and dry. Does anyone know if there are portable humidification options that can be used other than an HME?
