    Methodist Hospital in Sacramento???

    Just wondering, does anyone have any experience working for the Mercy system near Sacramento? I'm looking at Methodist hospital personally and was wondering if anyone has any insight to share perhaps? Thanks in advance! I really appreciate it :)

    Abx after ROM? How long before...

    your unit does this??? I'm wondering because the last hospital I worked for routinely gave abx at the 12 hr mark if a patient was ruptured, but the unit I work for now doesn't give anything UNTIL Mom is showing signs of infection (febrile, etc)......

    Needing some reassurance about returning to work, Please!!!

    Really? I honestly didn't know that this could happen. Maybe I shouldn't have been so honest with them??? I'm a little scared now. Thanks, SmilingBlueEyes. I think I've hit my quota for the year on bad health personally. It should be smooth s...

    Needing some reassurance about returning to work, Please!!!

    You're not going to believe this but I ended up at the ER again...this time with a kidney stone! It's not my first, but it still sucked. I had five days in a row off per my schedule so they just asked me to come in on Thursday. I have a few more...

    It's a Hospital, Not a Hotel (Gripe)

    Whoa...that poor baby. Sounds like mama needs some help to me. Hopefully baby won't need to be fed or held while her nails are drying. Geez...

    Needing some reassurance about returning to work, Please!!!

    Thank you for the kind words. I really need them right now. I couldn't sleep at all last night. My head was pounding and my abdomen is really sore (from the big ole bruise on my spleen), and emotionally I feel really down right now. I was bawl...

    Tattoos and nursing

    I have a medium sized Japanese symbol on the inside of my left wrist. I had it done so it was just big enough to wear a watch over it while at work (I found a big, sporty one by Nike that works perfectly.) You could try a watch and bracelet combo w...

    Did you ~EVER~ feel this way??

    Yes! I know exactly how you feel. I didn't graduate until I was 27, and I don't regret it at all. I also didn't apply myself in high school, hated math but loved science and I graduated with my BSN with HONORS! I'm proud of the fact that I did i...

    Hi guys!

    Just wanted to pop in and say hello to everyone. I will finish my orientation on nights next week and then they're cutting me free :) I am feeling a lot better about SVE's (thanks for all the great advice) and about everything overall. I still feel...

    Help with SVE's

    I know I've seen this topic around here before but really needed to post it again. Anyone have any tips for SVE's? I am having a really difficult time with assessing pts before the 5 cm point. Sometimes it just feels like mush to me. I'm pretty f...

    I got the job!

    I'm so happy for you! Wish I had some tips to share but I really don't (I just started in L&D as my first job a few weeks ago- loving it so far!) Get ready to learn although I'm sure with that med-surg experience you'll do great! Congrats!!...

    Has anyone bought this book?

    This book looks really cool. I plan on ordering a copy in the next couple of weeks. Thanks so much for referring it to us, Erin! Shannon
