  2. Univ of Mich ECMO training

    Ok so I am confused are you working at U of M?? Because it does not sound like it. At the University of Michigan RN's or Rt's run ECMO at the bedside not perfusionists. If you are in house the cost is free with an understanding you will pick up OT. ...

  6. HIPAA and patients name

    Ok So I have a question about HIPAA and email! I was always told to use initials and not the patients name when sending email. Do you guys believe this to be true? I think I pissed off a co-worker when I brought this to her attention!!

  12. Med Math and Calculators

    We were able to use calculators in school. Also I work in pediatrics and I have one in my pocket one at my bedside table and two in my bag. If they can use it when they are out of school why not in school. Math was never my best subject.
