    Flushing JP Drain

    Have encountered a couple of instances where the docs wished for the JP's to be flushed with 10cc NS tid to prevent blockage--even with the bulb suction, apparently these particular patients still had drains that became non-patent.
  2. No offense to staff nurses (I used to be one ), but: What are some of the questionable things that staffers (the sneaky ones) try to get agency nurses to do ? I hope I have not opened a fload gate here.

    How much do Seattle agency nurses make?

    Thanks guys for all of your responses. I was a little surprised that Seattle and surrounding areas pay the average of $30/hr for agency RN's. Coming from Jacksonville, FL, the pay rate there was $28/hr when I started in April 2000, then increased to $32/hr by the time I left in October 2000. Somehow I thought that Seattle being more northern than Florida, would pay more. At least I have some figures to work with, because as we all know, agencies will not give out any pay rate information, no matter how hard you try. ***Note: Can you guys in WA send me a message about your agencies? I'm looking to start working really soon. Thanks again, guys
  4. Just moved to Washington and I am not able to find out how much Seattle (and surrounding area) RNs make per hour. Help? Thanks:confused:
