    What could have caused this?

    There is always time for lube! (Name that movie!)

    Can anyone help me find a job? :[

    What about the place you did your clinicals at?

    Still penny pinching

    I wanted to add- We started doing a modified Total Money Makeover system (Dave Ramsey). DH and I each get our own stash of money each payday. If I want to buy coffee everyday, it comes from my stash of money, as does clothes and any extras I want. We...

    What could have caused this?

    Thank you for asking me to ignore this (so I'd know you weren't speaking directly of me). I feel a little bit better since I have remember his horrible platelet count that we didn't know about (insert rolling eyes here). I know if anything comes of i...

    Still penny pinching

    I understand! 1- Write down everything you're spending. You'll be amazed at the small areas you're spending money that add up. 2- Figure out ways to cut back. Do you really need 247 cable channels and 1500 cell minutes/month? 3- Cook! I hate cooking...

    What could have caused this?

    I wanted to add- the foley was inserted all the way to the hub before inflating the balloon, and I was able to pull back some after blowing up the balloon (it wouldn't pull back if blown up in the urethra, would it?). We also later found out the pati...

    What could have caused this?

    It was cardiac surgery- the physicians were aware, but it was not the priority at the time. I am not sure what was done post-op once the patient went to the ICU.

    What could have caused this?

    I'm beating myself up over this, and I don't even know if I should be. I did a foley on a male patient today, after anesthesia induction, prior to surgery start. The cath went in without any problems, no resistance. I go about 25ml of clear yellow ur...

    I am allergic to...

    Yep! My fave has to be the allergy to oxygen. Um- I don't think so. Reaction? It dried out their nose.

    So we have a Code coming in....

    I call it the thumper. However, they are an awesome machine, and in a smaller hospital where there isn't as much staff (or readily available students/residents), they can really help free up some hands. During a class, one of the ICU nurses said "I ...

    Chloraprep

    Chloraprep contains alcohol, therefore it should be dry before using cautery, to decrease the risk of fire. I agree with bolded. If they're using betadine paint and scrub, where they are much closer to the skin and could easily touch it, then yes,...

    Moderate hearing loss

    How late do your surgeons do electives?

    Do you work at the same hospital as me? LOL Same here. We'll do cases so long as we have staff.

    What do you wear?

    When you're at work, and NOT in the OR, what do you wear? Say you're going to the cafeteria to go grab a bite to eat, or the tube station is down and you need to run some records to another unit. Are you required to wear a jacket or cover over your s...

    RN-BSN Completion Programs

    I'm excited to "finally" be getting my BSN (even though it's only been a few years since I graduated with my ADN). I've had almost nothing but positive experiences so far, and have recommended the program I am in to several other nurses who have ask...
