  1. Problem with PEG?

    Hello all, I work in home care and have a quick question. A patient of mine has had a PEG for approximately one year now, the whole time without any problems. The last few weeks I've noticed that when I do a dressing change that it's not moving lik...
  2. The Circumcision Discussion

    Just for fun I looked up the exact definition of mutilate...to deprive of, cripple or maim, to make imperfect by seriously damaging a part. Well, you get the point. I personally think circumcision is a little bit mutilation. Thank goodness it does...
  3. dealing with stress as a nurse

    How bad is the stress? There are so many different types of stress to begin with. It really depends in what type of setting you work in. Lack of time to treat people humanly is for me a big stress maker. I get very irritated too when I know I cou...
  4. These patients are being taken care of at home by their families. Our last visit is around 1900-2000, then we are there again in the morning as early as possible. So yes, unfortunatly these patients are lying in a very wet diaper for the last few hou...
  5. Im such a fool!!

    O.K. A little crying is good to let of the steam about being mad at yourself, but don't pout too long, ha. We ALL have made a mistake somewhere down the road. Look at the positive side because there really is one. Your mistake wasn't detrimental t...
  6. Crushed Med Dust

    This post reminds me of one of my embarresing moments as a student nurse. I was working in a med/surg. unit, scared out of my wits, unsure of myself and was given the task of giving someone his meds. I was supposed to crush it and mix it with his y...
  7. A Meeting of Two Minds

    It all sounds kind of neat. I live in germany which is full of homeopathic care givers. Every village must have 3 or 4 to choose from. I would have a problem myself with just having this type of care, espeically if I had a serious illness. I feel...
  8. Hello all, We've got a few patients who seem to be having problems with staying dry until we show up for morning care.. The beds are so often soaking from neck to bottom with urin. We had always used extra thick pads in evening care to help absorb th...
  9. can anyone relate?

    I've been living overseas for many years and don't know some of these abbreviations. What is LTC?. Even without knowing this from what you say it sounds as if the orientation was very unfair for you. Hang in there with this menopause thing. I kno...
  10. Should spelling count?

    what a riot. i could actually read this without much of a problem. i still think that spelling is important, because we simply do notice the mistakes even if we understand what is being said. it says something about our person, our character too, ...
  11. Should spelling count?

    I think that spelling is very important. The problem sometimes is that I just don't have the time to check on all my mistakes. I have a double problem. I work in Germany and have to write in german:smackingf. I know as I'm writing that I'm making e...

  13. Life Just Sucks Sometimes

    What a wonderful read that was. Short and so true in all its aspects. That was just great. Sometimes life just is what it is. Someone wrote that this thread made them somehow sad. I find this thread relates just the opposite. It shouts out truth...
  14. As soon as I sent in this post I noticed right away my spelling error-good grief!!! I've been away from Michigan toooo long. In german we say Wundpflege, which is wound care. How embarassing:imbar I know what you are saying about her desire to pra...
  15. I've been working in home care nursing 8 years or so. Usually a tour will be shared with as few nurses as possible for better continuity in care and the like. A co-worker has finished an extra training to become our wundmanager on board. O.K., no p...
