    First day in OR

    On my first official day in the OR, in the middle of a case, one of our ortho docs yelled "I need the Otis elevator, STAT!!" My precepting nurse said "Go grab it. It's right out in the hall" as he pretended to be busy doing something. I was running through the halls, scanning the cupboards for some ortho instrument that I never heard of, when Tim (a surgical tech) walked by and asked what I was looking for. I frantically explained that "Dr. Bozo" (not his real name...lol) needed the Otis elevator, STAT!!! Very calmly, he said "It's right over here" and led me over to the main hospital elevators, just outside the OR entrance. He pointed to the the top of the elevator's doors where the elevator company's logo was displayed. I looked up and saw a small metal plaque with "OTIS" written on it. I was so embarrassed. I didn't even go back to the room (my precepting nurse was still in there...I would never abandon my patient!). Men are so dumb! Us girls in my OR never do that to the newbies!! (Well at least not as often!!)

    Suicide screening for all is not needed

    I agree it is not needed for all! Patient comes in and is hurting or agitated. Needs help with the problem they come in with. Not asking anything about their mental status. Like, yea I am depressed , sad, and emotional...... I am in the ER Hello!! :)

    Might be best to turn this room into a office, storage or something. If not, how can you tell if it is the "room" making them see and do things. Or not? Would you want to be a pt, in there?? I think not.

    I am sorry for the loss of your dad. I know we all would like the answers to your questions. Fact is we do not know for sure. We can only guess. I believe whatever your dad was mad at God about. Was cleared up when he, crossed over. :) And, I believe your dad will be watching over you, as he can. Perhaps you can talk to a counselor about missing your dad. Better way to go than in this, thread xoxo ================
