    Thank You!

    I just want to say thanks for all the advice that I see here which I appreciate! I'm an MDS coordinator for the long term care residents at my facility who works with another coordinator who only does the skilled resident, who doesn't have "teaching" skills. That said thank you for all who put in the time to answer someone and explain why we do why do and explaining the process. Have a blessed day!

    work schedule?

    So I need feedback here... Just when exactly is it appropriate for the DON to post the next months work schedule???? Here it is the 7th of Nov, and the schedule is only filled out until this coming Sunday. Repeated questions to the DON along with gentle reminders to PLEASE let us nurses have a "heads up" on our schedule are apparently falling on deaf ears. How in the world are we supposed to schedule appointments, family activities when we don't even know what days we have off! Isn't there supposed to be a labor law concerning on when the schedule is posted? What is the standard time for when your schedules are posted???? Since this is my 1st job out of nrs school, I'd just like a general feedback. Thanks, thatldo

    My husband got to make love to a nurse last night!

    Thanks all for your replies, they have made my day! Sorry, if I offended anyone with TMI, must have been all the caffeine when I posted this morning...or the lack of sleep :wink2:
  5. Yes, before he was having sex with a student...but at 2am I was officially informed via the web site that I, HIS WIFE :chuckle passed the NCLEX that I had taken Tuesday of this week!!!! What a relief, now I'm going to use the spa package my dad have given me for graduation, and celebrate for at least a week before I start job hunting. Thank you AllNurses.com for the educational advice that you all give to one another, I find that this a wonderful support group. I'm soooo happy school and the BIG test is done! During school, I lost my mother-in-law to CA, my husband was hospitilazed and had surgery 2 times within 2 months, my niece is critically ill, but I pulled through. I don't post often, but the 1st thing I did was log on to this web site each and every morning. It helped me tremendously, and I thank you all! Oh my husband thanks you all too! :chuckle

    when to call 911?

    The patient was a home health nurse & he always carries his medical supplies in his car which was available at time. Does this explain? And in answer, yes I have a BP monitor at my house, (FYI, this was not at my house but at a public event) for my husbands condition, surprise!:)

    when to call 911?

    Then I had the correct line of thinking...that when person is unconscious thats when ER help should have been called. Way I was looking at situation was, even if person was awake when amublance arrived, the way the seizures were coming closer together, they could have transported person when person was unconscious. Thanks for replying..

    when to call 911?

    What would you do? I had an incident happen the other day & need some feedback please. A person has passed out completely, is twitching, (seizure?) and when awake is disoriented, & is adament about not going to hospital. Pale, cool clammy skin, BP is high according to persons baseline. Person when awake does not want ambulance. (this is not in a hospital). Person has normal health hx except for incident 24h prior when person passed out cold, (no seizure involved) was taken to ER, examined & released. So thirty minutes pass, with periodic episodes of so called seizures, I can't help but notice this person is obviously not getting better and needs medical attention, but surely I'm thinking the people attending her are thinking the same thing. (Case of too many cooks in the kitchen if you know what I mean). To end of story person was taken to hospital, 2 hours later. What is bothering me, is....shouldn't the people attending this person called earlier for an ambulance or taken person directly to ER themselves? Thanks all.....
