    What does this mean?

    Hi everyone, may be a stupid question, but, (there are no stupid questions....right?) I'm a new nurse in a ICU, and I overheard someone say the term "crumping" a few days ago. Can someone tell me what this means? Thank you very much!

    Note quite a new grad, not quite experienced

    Try Memorial Hermann- I know they will hire people with less than a year experience even if their requirements say more. Good luck!

    Non-pitting edema and rating

    Hey Marisa, I am no expert, I am a new grad RN. But, what I was taught is that only pitting edema is rated 1-4 based on depth of the indentation made in mm. So, +1 pitting would be 2mm indentation, +2 would be 4 mm indentation, +3 would be 6 mm indentation, and +4 would be 8 mm or more. As far as I know, non-pitting edema is not rated 1-4. Hope you find an answer to this from someone more experienced than I, otherwise, I would definitely discuss this further with your instructor! Best of luck to you.

    Crazy things independent pts have asked of you?

    Let's see.. A prisoner once kindly asked me if I would shave his balls for him since he wasn't allowed. An ambulatory woman once asked me to get a washcloth and itch her vagina for her. A woman with dietary restrictions asked me to go to the Wendy's across the street to pick her up a meal. She obviously didn't care about the dietary restrictions, but she couldn't quite understand why I couldn't leave the hospital to go get her food...she goes "I thought yall did that stuff for patients" Oh, I could go on. lol
