    Breakroom..

    Did did try to keep my regular password, Commuter. Didn't work. UGH! Kept redirecting me even when I read to the bottom of the page in it's entirety several times. Maybe I'm just a doofus!

    Breakroom..

    I have been trying to get logged into "breakroom" for hours now and changing password (as required) etc. I can read all of your kind words but have been unable to reply. Maybe my registration will go through eventually. I would just like to thank all of you for your kind words, encouragement, support and prayers during this very trying time. It means more than you all will ever know. :heartbeat With heartfelt gratitude, Ebear

    Who the Heck Am I Now??

    Viva, you are indeed awesome! What a great post! Just look at you making a mental illness humorous on a "bad" day. You're still you, only better. :hug:

    Pain Meds

    Why is a patient ordered oxycodone and hydrocodone at the same time? Ask doc to review.

    what states NEED nurses ?

    Try both Carolinas. MANY teaching hospitals, as well as rural areas, are hiring new grads. It's the ones with >20yrs experience who are having the most problems finding employment.

    Smiggers, Don't sweat it. At 2 months, you are just now getting your feet wet. Keep a little notebook in your pocket and jot down things to remember. DO NOT let them put you in a room alone until you have more experience under your belt. It matters not if you are short staffed. Volunteer to help with cases you are not familiar/comfortable with. Scrubbing as much as you can will help you become a better circulator. You can do this! Keep hanging! :hug:

    Does Death Have A Smell?

    I haven't noticed a smell but I CAN see impending death in the eyes. It's sort of a "far away", blank, "other worldly" look. :uhoh21:

    Being Naked Where I Work: A Nurse With Cancer

    Ruby, I had a colon resection (ca ) a few yrs back and was nekkid at my hospital, too. It will be OK, I promise! My 1st post op day, a fellow nurse brought a HUGE fruit arrangement to me in all it's glory. Me thinking to myself: "hmmmm.....wonder if I can eat this with an NG tube"..... The staff enjoyed the fruit and came in my room to take their breaks. You will remain in my prayers, Ruby! :hug:

    Once again.....I'm a "nurse".....

    There are certified medical assistants, but they are by no means "registered". Time to bring this to the atention of state boards of nursing nationwide.
  15. Didn't you know that nurses are superhuman and are never to be on controlled meds for any reason?
