    Can't get covid at work

    Literal. They are saying we get it from others, outside the hospital, and there is no possible way we get it from the workplace.

    Can't get covid at work

    My hospital is saying that if nurses get COVID, it is not from the hospital. The hospital isn't responsible. It's our co-workers, our family, ourselves, but not the hospital. It is safer to be at the hospital than anywhere else. Ca...

    4 Types of Difficult Patients and Tips for Dealing With Them

    The moment a patient is asking for specific tests and medications, I always ask them: -"What do you think this test/lab result will tell you?..."What results are you looking for?" -"Why do you feel this test is necessary?" -"Have you spoken with your...

    New Nurse..Lost a pt. I didn't know ID hurt so deeply

    You personally, individually, wholly and absolutely on your own accord lost a patient? You were personally responsible to oversee every medication he took, was given, was ordered, and delivered according to standards? No!!! No, you are not personal...

    I hate fake call outs.

    Then she is not technically off and is considered on the clock. When she is truly off, not on call, not scheduled or required to come into work, then that is her choice. I can't blame my co-workers when it's my time to be on call. If I choose to a...

    I hate fake call outs.

    You never "have" to go in. If it is your day off, then it's on you if you choose to pick up a shift because a co-worker called off. Put your phone on silent. My best advice: Your phone is there for your convenience. You pay the bill, you own the p...
  7. Family member who questions what I'm doing with a "Did you" question. "did you thicken that drink" *no, I just thought I'd let your family member drown on dry land*... Reality: "Yes". Followed by a death chilling mom stare.

    What's your favorite nursing task?

    Getting positive on a Euvolemia patient when no one else could. But my most favorite thing is a really productive NT suction.

    Night Shift & Relationships

    It may affect your relationship now, but I can tell you that as a mother, I never saw my son during the days that I worked. He was in bed when I left for work and he was in bed when I came home. Work days if that's going to be better for both of you...

    Cry me a river...?

    It's an anonymous nursing forum. Did you have an anonymous nursing forum available back in your day, or did you just complain to your significant other? Did your complaints mirror these complaints? Has healthcare significantly changed in the last ...
  11. We should all be outraged. Outraged that non-clinical people are making decisions for nurses as if they understand nursing. Outraged that they don't consider the risks for the patient, outraged that they believe nurses do not need breaks, as if our...
  12. Something has got to give. A nurse in Louisiana was attacked at work, finished her shift, went to the ER the next night. Sent home. Dead a few days later from a blood clot. Patient abuse of nurses is not a right. Here's just another story of a n...

    Another Tragedy at Vanderbilt

    Maybe she monitored the patient to ensure she wasn't flailing around on the bed. Perhaps the nurse felt that the versed had done the trick because the patient was not moving. Obviously the patient wasn't tele monitored. Nurse gives a med, expects...

    Dubious Victories

    Patient was trached and O2 sat was reading 65%. Not a single nurse in the hallway. Hit the assist button and grabbed an ambu bag, connecting it to the trach and gave breaths. That's the first time I realized I was THE nurse at that moment. After ...
