    No Nursing Shortage At The Present Time

    I browsed through the previous pages, I couldn't read all of them. I have to say that in my particular area, we are seriously short of experienced nurses. In my unit, they received permission to expand hiring 3 times the new grads normally allowed because we are so short. A typical day is working 2 nurses short and sometimes no tech available to help. Other units are short also. No one is there to fill these positions. I guess it's applicable to location only.

    Charting during traumas

    I do what dthfytr does when we are short and there is no additional help. I grab a blank sheet of paper, sometimes I'll tape it quickly to my pants and write as I go. Not terribly efficient, but when I'm the primary nurse and the recorder and tending to patient care, then I do what I have to do until it can be documented properly. At least I have a timeline to help me.

    First AP1 class....

    I've found that flash cards are very helpful. Make sure to study whatever your professor emphasized in lecture. Good luck!

    Well it happened my first needlestick

    Don't be so hard on yourself. With everything we face in our daily workplace, eventually we will experience some type of exposure. As the previous poster mentioned, follow your protocols and file the appropriate paperwork. I wish you the very best outcome. It is a scary experience and I'm sorry you have to go through it.

    Favorite Dr or Nurse Name

    Dentist: Dr. Payne Urologist: Dr Johnson
  9. When I worked as a firefighter/paramedic, we had Haldol and Ativan for 'behavior modification'. Like some have mentioned before, there are different levels of EMS protocols according to the area, the department and medical director. We had very aggressive protocols and a medical director who would train us personally to his expectations. I learned a lot from him.
  10. On Occasion Our Trusty Truck Acts Funny, Very Good Vehicle Any How
  11. Yes. The macula are the hair cells in the vestibule which is composed of the utricle and the saccule and detects static equilibrium. The crista ampullaris is in the semi circular canals and detect dynamic equilibrium. How about this one: what are the differences between the pre and post ganglionic fibers in the sympathetic nervous system and the sympathetic NS?
  12. What are the organs of static equilibrium and those of dynamic equilibrium?

    CEN's and experienced ED nurses I need your help!

    Past medical history is nice too. You have to look for the horses before the zebras.

    lazy preceptor I need help

    You listed all the things not to do as a nurse....good for you for being aware of it. Get through the training, learn the flow of the clinic because you sound as though you already have the nurse part down. Once you are on your own, you can perform the correct way. Best of luck to you!

    Departments that cut the most shifts?

    I work in the ED and 2 out of the 3 past shifts I've been staff reduced. I find it amazing that they would roll the dice and take that chance. We're entering our "slow" season.
