    No, she was pretty much dead when she got hit, there was nothing that would have saved her.

    parents please talk to your teens

    You have a sat monitor in your car? 22% is not compatible with life. I've worked ER 19 years and I have never seen a stomach pumped for alcohol. On the flip side, a few years ago there was a teen here who went to the lake with friends, with alcohol that her father bought for her, who jumped in a truck and sped off. Windy two-lane road, she hit a family in a car head on and killed the mother. She's in CYA for the max term and her father is also serving time.

    I was caught diverting. My drug of choice was codeine. Most people who divert PO stuff choose TyCos or Vicodin. People who divert injectables often go for Demerol and Morphine.

    Twas the night before NCLEX...

    No luck needed, you'll do it on your own merits!!! You can do this!
  8. Unfortunately ERs have learned the hard way never to believe the pt until proven otherwise. We have seen way too many Immaculate Conceptions. Any female on her menses is considered pregnant until proven otherwise.

    And today's specials are...

    I fell into the ER by chance and stayed there for 19 years, before jumping ship and going into home health. I loved the ER and love home health.

    I was slapped by a doctor!

    Doesn't matter where he's from, if he's practiced in the US for any length of time then he should know that we hold a dim view of slapping anyone, no matter who it is. He needs to learn right quick that slapping someone is unacceptable, and the best way to teach him that is to hit him back with a police report.

    caring for nephrostomy bags when patient is sleeping

    Contact the company that supplies the bags, they may know of a support group in your area. No special clothing, sorry, the only thing I can think of is wrapping gauze or a piece of material around his body under the appliance.

    Call the cops and file an assault report. Then file a complaint with the hospital for assault and let it be known that this will not be tolerated. Fill out an employee injury report......yes, I know that a pop like that will not result in any after effects physically, but if this messes with your psyche you want the hospital to pay for any counseling you may need.

    Drinking while breastfeeding?

    I'm sorry, I do not consider 2 drinks a day (I'm assuming every day?) to be "moderate".

    terminated over the phone

    Once you are no longer employed you do not have a right to the charts anymore. As for your employee file, you do have a right to see everything in there. Go for it. I was once falsely accused of diverting morphine and was on admin leave for 3 weeks while it was investigated. I was cleared and went back to work. A year later, after I left, I found out about a termination letter that was filled out and signed, all it needed was the date. They were so convinced I was guilty that they were ready to terminate me and were just waiting for the proof they were so sure was coming. Someone goofed and didn't remove it from my file when I was cleared. I was able to prove harassment because of this.

    Expect the end to come soon, if it hasn't already. What a beautiful way to leave this Earth!
