  1. APS reporting and then termination

    Somebody should have addressed the wound. Whichever nurse was assigned for wound care. It sounds like a practice issue and not an abuse issue.
  2. Guns at the Bedside

    In Texas I've seen in home health, guns just laying on the table when you go to a patients house. But in hospitals or any health facility that I'm aware of, there is a very clear sign outside the door that prohibits carrying a gun inside a facility.
  3. APS reporting and then termination

    This doesn't sound like the appropriate action to take, to take this patient to the nurse station, and undress a wound. Maybe the administrator or DON was unhappy because you didn't follow the chain of command, file an incident report, etc? Not sure ...
  4. About To Give Up

    Not only test taking, but meet with your instructors and identify why your thinking isn't aligning with the right answers on the tests.
  5. Advice Please! Skilled Nursing to Assisted Living

    Sounds like an unstable work environment. They are stable patients, but when 1 fall turns into 2, and 2 wounds to 3, a patient turns into a hospice patient, the work adds up. You still have to admit, call MDs, ensure code status and send via 911.
  6. About To Give Up

    Identify where you are going wrong. I would fix that first before attempting again.
  7. Navigating the world of Restricted License

    Have you tried dialysis, psych, LTAC, agency or home health? Either that or personal physicians office.
  8. Arguing Over a Patient Assignment

    You HAVE to know this is wrong. You are a nurse and they don't teach this in your nursing curriculum. You selected everything but this statement on nursing exams I'm sure just so you could 'pass'. Besides, you're being paid to work at a facility, so ...
  9. Is 46 to old for LVN program and worth it?

    Actually in many other states, you do not need an I.V. certification as an LVN to do IV's. In Ca, you do need an I.V. cert. So CA is more limited. Also many RNs that I know, do not think they are superior to LVNs but the opportunities for RNs are ma...
  10. Student nurse HIPAA violation question

    Don't go back into the medical record. It is better to get a low grade for the clinical day, a low grade on the assignment, look stupid you didn't get your work done, assignment half done, whatever, than to violate HIPAA and get kicked out. Don't do ...
  11. Philippine doctors to nurses in the US

    Same with some other foreigners.
  12. Study how your instructors ask questions and then train your mind to think like that.
  13. Did the doctor not get in the same trouble for changing the cause of death?
  14. Should I give a two weeks' notice?

    UPDATE: Hey guys. Just wanted to update, this is late but there are MANY reasons why. OK, so after reading the replies after posting, I felt it was best to give my two weeks. So I showed up to work, I ran in to a friend and she told me the Direc...
  15. Sneaky Administration

    Another one is being short staffed and admin knowing your short staffed. These are the people behind the scenes above the administrator, pulling the strings, 'approving' if there could be extra staff or not.
