    Funny & Cute Things Our Demented Patients Say

    A patient with dementia sings to his bedside sitter: "Roses are red Violets are blue I love your fat a$$ But I'll still cheat on you!" He had us all rolling on the floor with laughter. :)

    5th Nursing Caption Contest - Win $100

    So nurses DO get a vacation... "Germaphobes!" So I guess the saying is true... you ARE what you eat!
  9. A graduate nurse dreams of the day she can take a lunch break. An experienced nurse could take a nap at her lunch break if given the chance. :)

    Nurse advocacy (Rant)

    We are unionized... still are overworked and understaffed, unsafe ratios, etc. Is there no way to end the madness? Nurses are stressed to the max, getting hurt, patients do die as a result of understaffing... will it ever end?

    ICU interview next week, suggestions for prep??

    My interview was very thorough! I was asked so many questions I'm not sure I can remember them all but I was asked about my RN experience, what my current nurse manager would say about me, why I wanted to work in the ICU, what my motivations were to leave my current job, how I deal with stress, why should she hire me over another candidate, etc... pretty much your typical interview type questions. I was also given scenarios and asked what would you do FIRST? Ex. You haven't received report yet on your assignment and the nurse is rounding on another patient when you hear the alarm go off on a vented patient, enter the room and patient is blue...what do you do first? ABC's.... ambu the pt. Another question was you enter the room and pt's BP is 60/40 and he is sitting at edge of bed c/o dizziness, what would you do first? Have the patient lay down. Wish I could remember more! Good Luck!

    I got the job, thanks!
  13. Hi everyone! I have an interview next week for an open position in the ICU for the hospital in which I currently work on the Ortho/Neuro floor. I am excited for this opportunity and wish to be well prepared. What kinds of questions did you encounter in your interview for ICU? Any suggestions on what I can do to prepare for the interview? Thanks!

    You have your opinion as I have mine. Let's agree to disagree and lest you forget, this thread is titled "Crouse Hospital" so let's keep the discussion to the subject at hand. If you wish to tout the praises of your opinion of " hands down #1...no question about it..." school then perhaps you should start a thread of your own to discuss it. Thank you.
