    I need to interview a Nursing Informatics nurse

    My title is not Informatics, but I was an analyst for our Epic project (am now a manager for that team). I also work with Informatics nurses on a daily basis. If you would like to interview me, I'd be happy to assist! PM me.

    How to maintain my EPIC certification?

    You can find that information on Epic's website. I think it's also in their training companions.

    HIPAA violation or just a bad decision?

    Does a CNA have to wipe butts?

    I'm hoping you don't have children. Oh, and you have to wipe not only the butts with poop, but the poop you have to wipe off of YOURSELF when the patient throws it at you or explodes on your leg!

    Socializing after work in your scrubs

    This has been a huge deal for our facility lately. It has come down the pike numerous times something to the effect of "Thou shalt not weareth thy scrubs outsideth the worketh facility-eth." I'd bet that most facilities have such rules, but just no...

    Yay! I got a position with my hospital as an Application Coordinator! I will be learning EPIC (which means going to Wisconsin in the dead of winter) and will begin an 18 month journey to get our hospital up and running. So excited! Any tips or ad...

    What phrases do you use?

    Copied documentation?

    Grrr... so frustrated! I work with a social worker, and part of our job is to do initial consultations with potential hospice patients. I was checking some charting yesterday on a patient when we did a visit together, and I found a note in the compu...

    Don't you hate secrets?

    I am a very strong advocate for telling the entire family the truth. My own mother died when I was 22, and I had no idea it was serious enough to take her life. Nobody else seemed surprised, especially her physician. Sucked.

    It shouldn't have happened this way....

    We have had similar situations in our hospital. These patients sometimes seem "forgotten" by nursing staff. "Oh, they're hospice," has been overheard more than a few times, like they somehow don't deserve the same caring attention if not more than ot...

    A co-worker peeve- VENT!

    I can relate. Deep breath... Hope you don't have to work tonight. Sounds like you could use a night or two off. Hang in there. Just think of it as ignorance. But, you definitely need to let management know about meeting times. There should be at lea...

    Pinning up long hair

    Our policy simply states, "Hair must be worn in a way that prevents contamination and does not present a safety hazard." Seems rather non-specific to me. But I've noticed that this organization is quite lenient on some of their policies, yet very s...
