    Who Draws blood from a-lines??

    hrrrm...doesn't sound like it should be part of their scope of practice. i worked as a tech on the unit i work at now as an RN (ms-icu), and several nurses taught me how to access art-lines, but it was in no way an expected duty. they allowed me to do it just so i would have the hands-on knowledge. however, i was our unit's only tech and i haven't been replaced since i switched roles. generally speaking, i would NOT want anybody besides another RN or and RT accessing my line.
  3. perhaps you should real the whole post, because this nurse DID offer a solution. a good one, too.

    Harborview, the House of Hope and Pain

    harborview changed my life in a lot of ways. I did a "health occupations" program in high school that facilitated CNA licensure, introduction into A&P, and an 8 week internship at harborview. it was my first real hospital experience on the side of medicine, not as a patient. the social issues presented there were heartbreaking, the personal tragedies were always present, but there always seemed to be a sense of progressiveness and excellence. if i ever move back to seattle, i will bang on that BICU door until they let me back in. it's not perfect, but it certainly is nice to be at a place that isn't as wrought with corporate greed like many institutions are (even, or perhaps especially, the "non-for-profit" ones).
