  1. Need help with syringe test question?

    Thanks! I really appreciate you. So if the concentration was 3ml? You will give the 3ml, correct. LOL trying to figure out how to tell my instructor she’s wrong.
  2. Need help with syringe test question?

    Thanks ! That’s what I was getting. However, not understand why my classmates are getting the 1.5ml.
  3. Need help with syringe test question?

    This is the concentration, just giving you an example. But this is what it read. Sorry if it’s confusing.
  4. Need help with syringe test question?

    This is the box that it comes in. Everyone is getting the 1.5mls as 0.15ml. I’m not understanding where to draw up at all.

  6. Need help with syringe test question?

    Hey It’s for a depo shot it says to administer 150mg that’s it. 150mg equals 0.15mls right. Why would my instructor have me use this syringe? I’m sorry if I’m sounding slow. My instructor told me the 1.5ml spot is correct but I’m not understanding. ...
  7. Need help with syringe test question?

  8. I know it makes me sound slow and dumb but oh well. If a med reads give 150mg that equals 0.15ml correct? How is this drawn up on a 3ml syringe? If the bevel is at 1 1/2 wouldn’t that be 1.5ml and not 0.15ml? Thanks
  9. Home health nurse working as a maid?

    She has demonstrated the skill, the first week she would actually do it herself. I would chart refused. Not sure what other nurses charted. But I finally got her to let me do it because I needed to assess for irritation or infection. But I definit...

    Hey! Her Care Plan is centered around her having a Trach that she cleans and change all the time. The reason I know is because while I was doing it, she told me I was the only nurse that cleaned her Trach, the others would let her do it herself. So I...
  11. Home health nurse working as a maid?

    WOW!, You really opened my eyes I guess insurance fraud isn’t really common. I heard her say one day to her ex coworker that she gets paid to do nothing and sit on her a** all day. I was like OMG. I can’t people will actually fraud the system this w...
  12. Home health nurse working as a maid?

    I mentioned what the pt told me because I’m pretty new to this case and wanted to know exactly why she needed skilled nursing because the agency couldn’t be specific ( red flag) my notes are pretty much recording intake and output, Trach cleaning, cl...
  13. Home health nurse working as a maid?

    I’m just curious, the pt told me she was told by the MD she will need skilled nursing care and cannot he left alone. This pt also plays on this, I believe to get sympathy from her family. She’ll act as if she’s so sick and etc. So I’m not sure how s...
  14. Home health nurse working as a maid?

    Katie, You probably couldn’t perform those tasks and in that case I wouldn’t mind. My other pt is a Quad and she does as much as she can. I don’t mind helping her with dinner, tidying up and etc. But this pt is fully functional to do so. But acts if...
  15. Home health nurse working as a maid?

    You are so right. I’m going to let the agency know after this pandemic is over why has been going on. But if nurses allow it and so forth then yes it’ll continue on. And trust me a lot of them quietly walked away. I know one of her nurses from her pr...
