When I was a Nurse Apprentice in NV while going to school, we also had ambubags in every room. I will definently ask our educator about that. I also thought that it was odd that we only had one on the whole unit! It's weird that I don't think about these things until I actually need them.
Also, although we have suction equipment in every room, we don't set the suction up in all the rooms; only for seizure precautions, r/o CVA/TIA, and aspiration precaution patients.
You know, I was thinking the same thing about my patient. Being a 23 y.o. with all these health issues, mainly because of drug abuse. It really does break my heart. but because of the experience he gave me, I know I will be more prepared from here on out. I was fumbling around like a lunatic. Sheesh.
