    I need a change!

    Positively sounds like a love/hate relationship which is often contributed to inner turmoil in which I would advise some self-examination.

    when should i tell my manager i'm pregnant?

    That's what I was thinking, Emergent. But just to be on the safe side, be sure to tell your manager you're pregnant before your water breaks.

    Scope Of Practice Question

    I second JKL's perception. If we are employed as a nurse, then we need to be able to act as a nurse. Once upon a time, Wrongway Regional Medical Center had housekeeping staff who also worked as sitters both on the medical and psych sides. The psych sitters were only allowed to touch the patient within the scope of their CPI training. Nurses were allowed to, and had to act within, the scope of their nursing abilities. In fact, one psych LPN was written up while acting as a sitter on the medical side because she refused any "hands on".

    Conflict of Interest

    With all due respect, Divine LPN, and I wish to be as objective as possible, but I'm experiencing difficulty in supporting your perception in your threads. Words like "conflict", frauds", "lies" and "passive aggression... dangerous to your health" which have appeared in your thread titles have caused me to look askance. This is an open forum for nurses to network, exchange information and ideas, and have a bit of fellowship, but I sense something else- Something like a bit of sensationalism? I will take full responsibility for my perception, for although I'm an allnurses' guide and a representative, I also have opinions that may not jive with those who run this train. And when it's all said and done- hey- it's only my opinion. Respectfully submitted.

    Neither was this one. I made it and then thought, "Nah!" This one was inspired by Emergent's thread about sensory overload when she said something along the lines of "By now we've all heard of the vercuronium error..." I thought, "I'd have to be on a desert isle in order to not have heard about the vercuronium error", but that's not true. I'm not into current events. They change so often. I never have been into current events. Back in the late 80's, an RN friend and I were discussing some current event of which I had no knowledge. He said to me,"You need to move to town and buy a newspaper!" A lot of stuff just doesn't interest me.

    Nurses Call the Governor of Tennessee

    Hey TriciaJ! I like that idea!
  7. Perhaps not so much as inattentive as not adhering to the specific boundaries of the sterile field and working within those boundaries, Cheisu. The scrub nurse works within the boundaries of the the sterile field and the circulating nurse is responsible for that which is outside of the sterile field. If a chuck or a drape needed to be moved outside of the sterile field, the circulating nurse would need to be informed and perform the task. Working within the boundaries of the sterile field does take a lot of focus in the beginning and eventually becomes second nature. Good luck to you, Cheisu!

    OldDude, I usually get your humor but a I'm not sure I understand your post, so please allow me to interpret: You're saying the members are playing a game of Clue, right? This comic wasn't posted on any thread, but are you sort of saying this?: People are so drawn to drama. The threads about a nurse causing a patient's death gets a hundreds and hundreds of replies, but a thread about Abraham Lincoln, on his 210th birthday, and a nurse gets like, two. The proof is in the pudding.
  9. When I first saw nurses wearing all black scrubs, I thought they were a radical departure from the all white uniforms we use to wear so I put Farawyn and a coworker/allnurses member Sissybee in a movie-style image:

    There is so very much discussion on the threads about the nurse who gave the wrong med and the patient ended up dying. So many members with so many viewpoints, I needed to create an image with something in it which would help symbolize what was occurring:

    This image is from the Introductions Forum where a new nurse said that the allnurses website members helped to ease her anxieties:
  12. Ruby Jane, from the School Nurses Forum, requested a comic of Tina Turner on a hamster wheel singing her version of "Proud Mary". God, I love being inspired!

    Are O2 sats a vital sign?

    Heck, roxhannah, I work inpatient psych and we count O2 sats as a VS!

    Nurses Call the Governor of Tennessee

    Just as an interesting side note, 20 years ago I was the defendant in a civil case where the plaintiff had a $50,000 suit against me. I told my lawyer, "If the jury is to be truly of my peers, there needs to be some nurses on it!" My lawyer said that probably wouldn't happen. Lo and behold, three of the jurors were RNs and the verdict ended with me merely having to pay a few thousand in court costs!

    Oh yeah, ruby jane- I'll be tired of doing art when they pry the drawing implement from my cold dead fingers!
