I absolutely love all the responses this post has drawn out.
When I am not so tired - I will go back and re-read everything.
I just had my first solo shift with 7 pts. 2 were new admits for chest pain, 2 with renal failure, one NSR who decided to to go A-fib with a little tach thrown in (two hours into my shift, same pt also on heparin drip), one post heart cath, and one who fell down in the ER. Awwwww.......welcome to tele. I know this may not sound like much to some but for me.......it was hectic. Some how I still smiled - nobody even knew I was a new RN (except for all my great supportive co-workers - God bless them everyone).
Thanks again everyone for your responses. I loved the cat fight too.
