    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.

    "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.

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

    Its not a matter of wanting to be alone. You would have to understand the dynamics and clinic culture here to understand what i mean:/. You are correct though, the more hands the better i agree. Its a role confusion issue at my clinic. Thanks for the heads up:)

    Traveling with under a year exp??

    Et there. Does anyone know of any travel companies that would consider allowing me to travel with under a year experience? I currently have a 6 months as an RN in dialysis, 7 years as an LPN, 4 years of that is med surge. I can also tech. Thanks:)
  15. Ey there folks...i have a question for seasoned dialysis nurses...i have 7 years experience as an LpN--4 of them in Med-Surge...i obtained my temp RN in Alaska last december nearly a tear ago( understand in Alaska, a temporary RN has NO restrictions...you are not a GN, but an RN) I took and passed RN boards in April of this year. I have been employed as a Dialysis RN for a very large dialysis company since then... Im being told that i cant be left alone (need to have another RN in the building) until i have a full year of RN experience from the time i was given my permanent RN license, not December when the state of AK allowed me to practice with a temp license...ive talked to several friends in other states, and they tell me that it sounds like a power play for the people that have been there longer to stay charge nurse....its hard to get the respect of the techs when they keep circumventing me on the floor, and running to whoever os "charge" that day...i pass meds, put in orders, can run shift etc Have any if you encountered this in your facility?? And have you seen an RN with under a year experience be left alone as the only RN in the building?? I have looked at the CMS regs and cannot find anything in stone. Serious answers and advice only:). Thanks
