    Any facilities actually using an AccuVein? Any thoughts?

    They suck. Give me an Ultrasound over that useless thing any day of the week

    While You Wait

    The people that need to read this type of stuff won't/dont care what it says. they only care about themselves. Im sure almost every ER nurse has been coding a pt only to have a patient come up to them and complain about the wait.
  4. I miss the days when Facebook was only available to college students.

    To Be (Monitored) or Not To Be (Monitored)

    Speaking from the ER here. All tele pts must be transferred to the floor by an ER tech, if they are on cardiac drips then an RN must go instead and on the monitor every time. Every ICU pt requires monitor to go up and at least one RN goes with them. If our main MRI is down and we have to go to the "outpatient" one, two RNs must go, usually one of us and a flight nurse If they go for a procedure ( cath, GI, IR, whatever ) then the dept that is getting the pt does the monitoring

    All the Things We Carry

    Only people in this field truly understand it too. My friends don't get it. I can come home and joke to them about how crazy things can be but there is the other side too that most will never know. This job has taken so much from me and left very dark spots in my soul that can't ever be fixed. The constant reminders of the horrible things I have done and seen.

    Why Do People Struggle With Math?

    I love math. There is only one answer, yet often times several ways to get there. Simply beautiful

    Everyone Won't Succeed. And That's Okay!

    Settling is a personal choice, not a punishment. You can choose to settle or to overcome.

    Nursing School Won't Teach You These Things (Part 2)

    And that is the problem! that is why we have bad nurses or nurses that constantly make mistakes. You want to blow smoke up their skirt instead of addressing issues. If little Susie RN over there is bad at her job, she better know about it so she can shape up. Yes there are tactful ways of going about doing that, but just simply avoiding the subject d/t feelings is way more damaging.
