    Do all nurses make fatal mistakes?

    I have been a nurse over 30 years .Yes I have made a few med errors but no harm to pt .Certainly not a fatal error.

    BSN is a joke

    you could also look to your supervisor and see if they could send you to a class on 12 lead EKG.or you could go to a seminar on it this would get you CEUs

    Peritoneal Dialysis in the ED?

    absolutely not .dialysis nurse would be called to floor not in my ED.

    "Fixin' to die"

    Thank God the nurse used good judgement and immediately knew something was seriously wrong and called 911.I read the story it sounds like she did everything correct.I dont feel that by her using that statement she sounds ignorant at all.it sounds like a southern slang that is used .

    The Opioid Crisis hits LTC

    I agree with the commuter.That said his death is sad.

    No pain meds in ER??

    Very well said and I agree with you

    No pain meds in ER??

    I agree as a nurse there should be a decrease in opiate prescriptions and use .like all Ed i have seen too many OD in my time .We give a fair amount of iv dilaudid,morphine ,fentanylt and ativan,etc.for c/o pain .We traditionally also gave small 2-3 days worth in a script.Finally in last year the scripts for narcotics and or benzos are almost gone except in case of fractures.Pts are given Referrals.Pts not happy.I still believe the true c/o pain should be treated as we are in my ED .this is a compromise that should continue.I hope my ED Drs,NP, and Pa-s agree. This NJ plan of no narcotics at all scares me if this becomes a National Trend because as a RN and a chronic and acute pain sufferer I want my pain treated with non narcotics preferably .But there have been and are times i have needed shorterm narcotics.I dont enjoy suffering and being unable to work.
