    Re: Weight based critical drips

    Thanks for the responses all. Marienm, that makes so much sense. Thank you.

    Re: Weight based critical drips

    Does the weight not change for those patients who are in ICU for weeks or months? Since they are getting tube feeds, their weight gain would be due to more than edema.

    Re: Weight based critical drips

    I'm a PACU nurse that has been redeployed to ICU a few times past 3 months. I'm wondering for the weight based infusions, what weight do you guys enter and how often do you update? Actual weight, ideal weight or lean body weight? So far, I've taken o...

    Another one wanting to bite the dust.

    Switched from medical surgical before the pandemic with 4-5 acute patients to maximum 2 patients on PACU. Will never go back to regular bedside. PACU is EXTREMELY BUSY. I might have 6-8 patients a day, but maximum TWO AT ONE TIME. So it's mange...

    New to PACU (looking for tips/advice)

    What are some good resources to read up on as a new graduate in the ICU?

    http://www.icufaqs.org/ If found this site helpful. I loved it so much, I ordered the book.
  7. Let me just ask... Were any of these patient's wealthy and you were hoping they will leave you something in their will? Otherwise it doesn't make sense. Event the most LOVING offspring don't do what you do.
  8. You lost me at nightly foot soak and 2 hours to get to bed.

    Nursing tips and tricks: Please share.

    I saw this in a nursing facebook page and thought it was a great idea. Please share your tips and tricks and which specialty you work in.
  10. After all, they are just sent back home to quarantine and rest anyway. That’s such a waste of a test. Everyone is already being told what kind of distancing and precautions to take. I feel like those tests are wasted of either asymptomatic individual...
  11. What if you refuse? What can they do? Would they really fire or send you home when they are desperate for nurses?

    Another Quitter

    If I had the resources, I would not feel an iota of guilt in quitting. Not an atom's weight. They are already training your replacement.

    Boyfriend doesn't want to see me. Am I being selfish?

    Please tell me you called the police and forced him to let you in? PLEASE. The audacity! I don't know your situation, but that day he would go from "domestic partner" to an "ex" until I could safely move out. This is one of the saddest posts I've rea...

    Coronavirus vaccine testing in Africa?

    What do you guys think about what those two doctors proposed? Is the backlash against them warranted or do you think they were misunderstood? To be honest, hearing that interview gave me "tuskegee experiment" vibes. https://nypost.com/2020/04/03/doct...

    Perfect Timing: Brand New ICU RN During Pandemic

    Good luck. I'm nervous starting a new job during the pandemic too. I'll be going for orientation for PACU but they will be sending me to ICU so I'm not sure how that will effect my orientation. I already had the classroom portion of the orientation c...
