  1. The Patient I Failed

    It always make me so angry that one person would go against the final wishes of another because they are to weak to let go. How can they feel like they did everything possible when they have violated the person on every possible level? Thank you for ...
  2. Question on risk of HIV exposure/infection

    For all of you who felt the need for chastising someone who is honestly seeking information on something they do not know, "Shame on you"! It is that kind of reception to questions that keeps people from learning the right way to do things. I am with...
  3. Missing meds & I'm getting the blame

    A hair follicle test will prove without a doubt that you did not imbibe the drugs (they run around $200.00) this will tell what drugs you have been taking and their levels, which will indicate if they are in the therapeutic range or not. Then you tel...
  4. Question on risk of HIV exposure/infection

    I make sure I always stand to the side when when client coughs. Client rcv's 30 inner cannula's a month and is not vent dependent and as a matter of fact right now the client does not even have a spare trach! Protocol for cleaning the cannula is rins...
  5. I just recently started home health as a second job. The client I have been assigned to is HIV positive. Client is trached and does not tolerate deep suctioning. Client has a very productive cough. PC asks that nurse grab inner cannula at the height ...
  6. Does this job sound like a scam?

    CAM! Tip offs: 1. to good to be true. 2. Poor English and sentence structure. 3. the request for personal information (why the need to know your maritial status) 4.You are required to spend money out of your pocket for which you will be "reimbursed...
  7. Cali lvn looking for work

    It may sound silly but it has worked for me several times (not just nursing jobs). Get out the phone book and call EVERY doctors office, LTC, assisted living facilty, home health care place and hospital etc.. in it and ask if they are hiring for LVN'...
  8. First LPN job in LTC...is this the way it really is?

    Yes unfortunately it is like that at a lot of LTC's. You will eventually get the names memorized and the meds memorized. the med mem helps cuz you know what they need, they should be in order in the cart so you can quickly check what you are pulling ...
  9. Fired and mad! Need to vent.

    It was supposedly the owner /admin close personal family friends. So if I work there it's o.k for my close personal family friends to could feel free to just walk in off the street and start looking thru everything? Also when I called the on call wee...

    O.k,I worked Sat and Sun this weekend. We have been in survey and exit interview was Monday. On Sunday evening I was in a room passing meds to a resident. Cna came to room and told me there was a group of people just walking around the facility and t...
  11. Narcotic Counting Book

    Pharmacy should send a narc sheet with each narc delivered. this provides proof of how many were deliverd as you both have to sign off for the count at delivery. Pages should be removable so that when a card is complete the narc sign off sheet can (...
  12. Are you insulted????

    Apparently they may be unhappy with their lives and feel the need to possibly live vicariously through someone elses goals. You have the right to do what makes you happy. I am an LVN who did all of my pre-reqs except for 2 classes to get into the RN ...
  13. Share The Weirdest Reasons Patients Push The Call Light

    I had one elderly woman who would hit the call light if her Vit C was not delivered at EXACTLY 7:00 p.m.. She was an ALZ pt. Her daughter insisted she have a phone in her room. At 7:00 p.m. I was doing accu checks. Well when laying on the call light...
  14. I work with MD pt's who are all ventilator dependent and some are on pulse ox monitors at night. I have been known to be at home and wake form a dead sleep and bolt to the kitchen to answer an alarm, usually the microwave or the oven timer. I always ...
  15. Written up for a no call no show???!!!

    They decided not to write me up. basically I told them "do it, I have phone records clearly showing that I called in 72 hrs to notify you". Nope, they just played nasty. I usually work 8-12 days a month and for March I have, let's count them, 4 days...
