    Does psych nursing affect ur home life?

    "Crazy" isn't exclusive to psych units. I've dealt with several people on an acute floor with Axis I & II dx.

    Prision dress code

    I know exactly what you mean blue sky. I don't want to buy scrubs that I won't be able to wear.

    I can't wait to be a psych RN. My entire career has prepared me to enter this field.

    To get insurance or to not get insurance...that is the question

    You could be sued.... personally. Do you want to give up your home, vehicles? Insurance is $100 per year. I don't know a single doctor who doesn't carry it.
  7. And once you start on the job, leave the personal stuff out.

    Working at new DSH / CHCF

    Hello, I just wanted to start a new thread for the employees working at the new hospital. I will be starting soon and know that there are unique problems working at a facility that it opening, like putting out fires all over the place. In addition, this is a new model in prison health care which may present it's own challenges. Would like to hear from anyone working here about pitfalls or how they are coping with this unique environment.

    IV push

    Your IV drug book should give parameters for everything. I agree with a lot of the comments above that diluted meds are easier to control.

    Fired after the first month as a new grad! In shock!

    Toxic workplace... wow that doctor. Be glad you got out before you got Stockholm syndrome.

    Bedside handoff?

    It might work for someone with insight, but for someone in crisis, not. There are even patients in medsurg that would not be appropriate for bedside reporting.

    Possible Friction with Senior Psych Techs

    Sounds like the SPT is out of line. Check with your supervisor or union rep.
