    Rapid admission: med/surg floor

    Pt's waiting to be placed in the units. In a nutshell you are the admission nurse You do the admission paperwork, sign-off the doc orders and wait for a bed to open in the hospital

    Have you meet Jnette: "Goody 1 Shoe"

    when my dad was waiting for his kidney transplant years ago, it was his dialysis rn who got us thru that roller coaster. jnette, i don't know you, but your post speak for themselves. congrats. the poem below is for you. the proverbs 31 nurse by lois sigmon turley, rn who can find a good natured nurse? for her price is far above silver and gold. she seeks medicines and skills, and works willingly with others. she gives of herself and considers her own desires last. a heartwarming smile is hers, and is made beautiful in her eyes. she girds herself with honor and strengthens her ability with patience. she perceives that her work is good. her candle does not go out by night. she lays her hands upon understanding. she stretches out her hand to the poor; yet, she reaches forth hands to the needy. she is not afraid of sorrow, for her trust is in god. pride and humility are her clothing, and she shall rejoice in time to come. she opens her mouth with comfort, and in her tongue is the law of kindness. her associates rise up and call her blessed; her patients also praise her kindness. many daughters have helped others, but you excel them all. favor is deceitful, and beauty is vain. but a nurse that fears the lord -- she shall be praised!

    Poly Cystic Ovarian Syndrome

    good websites. why is "skin tags" listed as possible symptoms? I understand about the darkened skin on neck, thighs, arms etc, but not clear on why these develop. anyone know?

    Hospitals/5 star amenities--what do you think?

    then they wonder why nurses leave the profession.

    Abandoning babies at Hospitals LEGAL?!?!

    Abandoning babies at Hospitals LEGAL?!?!

    In some states there is a law called "Safe Haven". Name/title varies_ Think of it this way, a 14 yo girl gives birth in a public restroom and decides that she cannot bring her baby home. She a) drowns the baby, b)places the infant in a garbage can c) drops the baby at a hospital, police station etc. I hope she goes for choice c.

    Police Killed Our Patient

    and another thing before I get out of here... Why doesn't the mental health facility offer a course/in-service to the police? Instead of blaming officers for everything that goes wrong, be part of the solution. outta here.

    Police Killed Our Patient

    Why are you assuming that the cops killed him? You seem to be more aware of this person medical hx, why don't you tell us more? What psych meds was this person on? What are the side-effects of some of his meds? Are you 100 percent sure this pt and the others who have passed away, were taking their meds at the time they were in contact w/the police in your area. There are so many unanswered questions here... This case has everything going for it except the facts. You have good cops and you have bad cops. You have good nurses and you have bad nurses. Sometimes you don't have enough cops at one time in the station to subdue a suspect. Just like sometimes units do not have enough staff to subdue someone at a hospital. So, what are your options? to tase or not to tase? Was the individual in this case trying to reach for the officers gun? My point here is that we do not know what went on in the station or anywhere else. We were not there.
