    Can I get your opinion??

    Wow, sorry you're going through all of that. However, according to the TOS of this site, this is not a medical advice board. You need to call your doc. Hope you feel better.

    Help with abbreviations

    Many facilities' medical records departments have an "approved abbreviations" list and only those abbreviations are permitted in charting. In my experience, it has been found in a polices and procedures manual. Also, the med rec dept would probably be glad to print a copy for you if you have trouble locating one. Mary
  4. What a beautifully written piece!

    I think the attack actually happened in September 2006.

  7. Try searching this site for a thread. I found one from last fall that looked very helpful, but I don't know how to provide a direct link to it.

    Who would you take a verbal order from?

    Nope, it doesn't. An agency pays the Joint Commission to survey and accredit them. No agency/organization is required to have Joint Commission accreditation.

    Drinks in the nurses station...

    occupational safety and health standards bloodborne pathogens [color=#003399]1910.1030(d)(2)(ix) [color=#003399]2006 - 05/17/2006 - requirements for covered beverages at nurses' stations. eating, drinking, smoking, applying cosmetics or lip balm, and handling contact lenses are prohibited in work areas where there is a reasonable likelihood of occupational exposure. occupational exposure means reasonably anticipated skin, eye, mucous membrane, or parenteral contact with blood or other potentially infectious materials that may result from the performance of an employee's duties. is there a reasonable likelihood of occupational exposure at your nurses station? if the answer is yes, then osha says no. osha does not tell anyone what they can do, only what they can't do.

    IM site bleeding

    I was giving Prolixin decanoate a few weeks ago, aspirated, and lo and behold! Darned if I didn't aspirate blood!! Second time in 20 + years of giving IMs. The first time was as a student giving a pre-op Demerol IM. So, yes, I still aspirate. Mary

    It's long, dangerous, but worth typing, to me!

    You may believe they belong there, but unless the morbidly obese patient has a gun to head, knife to throat or pills in mouth an acute psychiatric hospitalization is not going to be covered by most insurances. Being morbidly obese for whatever (psychological) reason, unfortunately, is not going to be addressed in an acute psychiatric setting. But I hear what you are saying.

    "Stint" for stent. "Ongoingly"
