  2. Dialysis patients who are incontinent

    Ok that's a clarification. But I'll tell you from experience, it's almost impossible to clean someone up in a lounge chair. They can turn in those darn things. With the arm rests in the way. About breaks the care givers back. Been there done that....
  3. Do you have a union? Should nurses strike?

    Yep.
  4. Dialysis patients who are incontinent

    On the surface I agree with you Tweety. My even bigger concern is the patient sitting in a w/c for 4 hours. NOW that is unacceptable. Hope we've given you some insight and good suggestions for the next time.
  5. Dialysis patients who are incontinent

  9. Anything about PPR Travel?

    Many like them. That says something. I hear they give wonderful superb housing. If wonderful superb housing pays your bills; might be worth it.
  10. hello

    Are you heparinizing your dialyzers during prime? If your chambers are filling up too much then you have something clamped either the arterial or venous line before you have turned off your pump or you aren't releasing your clamps when you turn on ...
  11. LPN dialysis nurse in Illinois?

    www.nephrologynursing.net Check the Jan-Feb 2005 issue of Nephrology Nursing Journal under the heading States ...... It lists every state and what LPN's and PCT's can do. If a state won't allow LPN's to give IV meds, i.e. Epo, Venofer, and Zempla...
  12. Do you have a union? Should nurses strike?

    LOL Even the unions themselves don't stick together. :trout:

    Sorry I was in a hurry and doubled posted... :trout:
  14. Do you have a union? Should nurses strike?

    One traveler to another... Haven't you chosen the former? You aren't union as a traveler are you?
  15. Dialysis patients who are incontinent
