    What should EVERY nurse know about Dialysis

    Try being on the receiving end of patients that bash you for trying to help them be autonomous with their disease. This practice spoke of above does not happen in every center...I assure you.

    Is turning the utrafiltration off ok?

    Within my company which is a large, worldwide company (no names mentioned) the UF is never turned off, with a lowest being a 300 UF. Unless if course the pt is on a PUFF tx.
  9. Some advice from an LpN for 6 years turned RN, lots if things will bother you in the field. Focus on your behavior and business, no one else's. Attrition will take care of the rest Most of us still want to save the world one person at a time. Take all that time and energy, focus in you, and stay out of gossip. Mouth closed, eArs open. I mean this sincerely and with due respect.

    "Seasoned Nurses will eat their young"

    In fairness, you went to school nearly 15 years ago:). I will say that i love being a nurse, however the diverse personalities, drama, and passive aggressiveness by people who are always battling for who knows more clearly is getting old. I have seen the aggressiveness from new nurses as well as older. It knew no age or experience level...i feel they should manage their stress, or kindly go sell shoes:)

    Late patients

    Consistancy with cutting or not cutting time is important as well. Geography of the clinic is important too. Our clinic culture over time is one that the patients know we are the only hemodialysis unit within 380 miles, so we have to deal with it...we had them sign contracts/promise to be on time, however it doesn't last for long. My suggestion? Be consistent and everyone at the facility be on the same page: if your going to cut it for one, cut it for everyone...when there labs look horrible and out of goal, good documentation with attempts to reeducate are very important from a moral and legal standpoint:)

    New Grad RN with 7 years LPn experience...question

    Well noted. I clean chairs and take patients off. Apparently well before i got their it was a "free for all" and lacked sound and consistent management. We are about to have yet another shift and another clinic manager, although this one comes from within...thank you for the reminder on things I already knew and practice, but needed a reminder on.
