    Mark Klimek

    I don't think his recorded classes are available for sale. You have to attend his sessions which are held in large cities in Ohio. Check the website for dates. I know people come from neighboring states to attend. He also provides a workbook that you use in his classes. He is an amazing teacher and it's well worth taking the class!

    Inpatient Hospice Ethical Dilemma?

    Does your hospital have an anonymous ethics reporting line? This is definitely not ok. Google the Stark law. Physicians cannot make referrals to a facility in which they, or an immediate family member, have a financial interest.

    How to become a case manager

    I was just hired within my same hospital system for a Case Manager position. I have 4 years of med surg tele experience and a BSN, but no CM experience. I believe BSN was a requirement. I will wear scrubs (Yay!) with a lab coat, I will see patients in order to do discharge planning, work closely with doctors and social workers. I do have to work one weekend a month. This job is a salary position. Certification is not required, but I'm told some get it.

    Best of both worlds?

    At large hospitals the OR team works 12's. Also try interventional radiology or cath lab at a big hospital

    Case Management Interview!!!

    Well, I was offered the position today, at the same rate I make as a staff RN. This will be a salary position, though, 40 hours instead of my .9 FT. A little more vacation and no weekends or holidays. They would not negotiate on the salary. Does this sound normal?

    Case Management Interview!!!

    Would love to hear some replies on this as well. I just had an interview within the same hospital system I'm currently employed in for CM position and am hoping for a bit of a pay raise.

    Mid-forties : Looking for a Specialty to Grow Old In

    I'm 51 and contemplating a move from the floor to case management. I'm just worried about giving up the freedom and flexibility of 3 12's for the 5 - 8 hour days. But those long 12's are killing me! I had an interview this week, so we shall see!

    Patient positioning aids

    Sally tubes are amazing. 1 patient use, very inexpensive, like $5 a piece. Works kind of like a trash bag under the draw sheet and let you move people without injuring yourself. We keep them in every room of the hospital. I hope my picture comes through!

    Has anyone tried the new Dansko XP?

    Wondering if anyone has tried these? They look like the regular professional Dansko line, but there is a very soft removable liner that provides a very cushiony feel. The hardness of the Professional line was what I didn't like, so I am wondering if these are as good as they claim!

    12 hr shift makeup routine

    Try bare minerals, I love it, it's super natural looking and just covers up the bad stuff. I use it every day for floor nursing. And like someone previously said, Sephora or Ulta can help you choose, and they carry everything all in one spot.

    IV push failure - how I am failing

    index this is actually an icu guide, but it has so much good information in it for any beginning nurse. Check it out. The peripheral IV chapter is fabulous, lots of pictures and information and is downloadable as a word document.

    I would call and ask HR, we have no way of knowing. But usually it would mean 3 shifts a week.

    Anxiety rated on a 0-10 scale is what test?

    I know the CIWA scale ranks anxiety on a zero to ten rating. Not sure if this helps you, but may give you a starting point.
