    donating blood

    this am i went and gave blood at our local high school and thought it was VERY strange that no one wore gloves!!!! is this the usual practice at blood banks? i mean ,i know that if you get a needle stick gloves won't help but NO gloves? does any one know if this is standard procedure?

    cops 'n nurses

    my husband is a detective and we've been married 20 years!yea! and a big part of it is that we do have alot of understanding about and respect for each of our chosen professions.my husband no longer works nights or holidays unless he's called out so he now says kiddingly that he "picked his profession and i picked mine!" we also have a very sick and twisted sense of humour! and that helps alot...

    sex changes

    at the hospital that i work at, we have a surgeon who does "gender revision "surgeries. and the pt's are most definately female upon discharge... so i would imagine that the clients you are asking about are already female!

    Documentation - Consistent throughout?

    when we have someone coming in for a transfusion or ABX. infusions, we have a "day of event" form that we use.although it's supposed to be quicker/easier to fill out, i think the only thing easier about it is the pt. profile part. we still have to do a complete head-to-toe assement. hope this makes sense,it's hard to describe all the paperwork without visuals!!!

    Is anyone happy with their job?

    yes,i love my job! RN on a very busy ortho unit, i usually have 3-5 pt's on days, if we are working with LPN's then we have to "resource" their pt's also. on my weekends(nocs) i might have 6-7 if we are really busy. i work a point 7which comes out to 3days one week then 4 days the next. as far as overime goes,it also depends on what my shift was like,ie: did i get any trauma's in, how many of my pt's are surgicals,etc.
