    PICC LINE REMOVAL

    , The objective in this is to make sure that you have an gel of some sort to occlude the vessel track. And then cover with the TSM and the patient must remain supine x 30 minutes s/p removal. Checks thereafter are done frequently for the first hour to monitor for complication r/t removal. Post removal, if the insertion site is covered with an occlusive substance and an occlusive dressing, why would it be necessary to remain supine s/p CVC removal?

    Help, I hate Vomit - Can I still be a nurse??

    Depending on where you work, there isn't really THAT much vomit. If someone says "I think I'm going to be sick" take it SERIOUSLY and throw them a barf bag as you simultaneously push zofran. In 3 years, I've only had one of my patients puke like 3x. Not too bad.

    So...What Kind of Nursing Task Do You LIKE?

    Also, ivp meds- mainly versed. Washing faces and ears- a freshly washed face and clean ears somehow make patients look less sick.

    So...What Kind of Nursing Task Do You LIKE?

    Clocking out comes to mind first. With a little thought, I could also say that I enjoy patient education and therapeutic hypothermia.

    I like the idea of changing my username! I love my username, but I really don't post much for fear of being "outted" irl. I I don't think I've established much of anything here to warrant keeping my name..hmm. And That's my sleeping pill yammerings about considering upgrading my account as well. *takes bow, curtain drops*
