  1. SBAR for Psych

    Hey guys, a co-worker and I came from intensive care setting where attention was paid to detail. Shift report is so very subjective at our behavioral health facility. Does anyone have an SBAR or similar guideline for giving report so the right info g...
  2. Psych Nurse Report Sheet

    Hi, I realise this is an old post, but would you mind sharing it with me? I hope you still have it. Thank you Dakota.825@gmail.com
  3. I did it after 36 years working NICU! Best decision ever! I feel like a nurse again. Management in my old unit went to crap and all they worried about was ‘don't make the parents mad, that will affect the HCAPS score'
  4. Slobber �

    Need some ideas for securing 6.5fr OGT to chin while on NCPAP. Kiddos constantly blow bubbles and eventually the feeding tube comes off. Thanks!!!
  5. Our NICU needs a new Kardex/report system

    I would very much like to have a copy of your Kardex as well!! I will PM you my address if you can get me a sample
  6. It's here: BSN only hiring in hospitals

    As a Diploma Grad of over 30 years, the fact still remains that more clinical time while in school vs non-clinical time better prepares for the work enviornment. I would rather work an ADN or Diploma Grad any day rather than some of the BSN's who gra...

  8. P&P Review

    Hi all, this has most likely already been posted, but.....we are reviewing and updating Policies & Procedures in our Level III NICU. We are needing evidence based stuff. Can anyone post some good web-sites to find this info???
  9. WITHDRAWL SKIN CARE

    WE SEEM TO HAVE MORE AND MORE WITHDRAWING BABIES.....USUALLY METHADONE. WHAT DO OTHER UNITS DO FOR SKIN CARE TO THE DIAPER AREA??? THEIR LITTLE BOTTOMS GET SOOOO RED AND OFTENTIMES BLEED DUE TO FREQUENT LOOSE STOOLS. ANY IDEAS APPRECIATED
  10. Admission data

    huh???
  11. Circumcized on a vent?

    I worked briefly at a hospital that had an extremely high c/sec rate. I quit shortly after I was at a c/s....and as soon as the baby hit the warmer, the doc left the mom and circ'd the baby. UNBELIEVABLE.
  12. Measuring urine output

    you know what?? This drives me crazy as well......I don't need a lecture, I was just wondering what other units do
  13. Measuring urine output

    Yeah, I thought it was a standard as well. We do count the wet diapers. Even with the micropremies tho, it is just a check-mark......drives me crazy
  14. Measuring urine output

    I am wondering what other units do in regards to keeping track of urine output. The Level III unit I work in does not measure urine output at all.
  15. Developmental positioning in Giraffe beds

    very good info!! the "folded pillowcase"..is that a regular size or baby size? Can you further explain about the 'folded diaper under the tummy' ? What is a 'circular gel pillow? Is it like a donut?? We make nests out of rolled blankets, which put...
