    Yeast Infections in Pregnancy

    It could be something as simple as ligament pain that was brought on by you standing up quickly, and the yeast infections was just something they found by coincidence. I dunno, it's hard to diagnose online But, seeing as it required a trip to ER, I don't think it's unreasonable for you to call your doc and ask that your appt be moved up ASAP. I'm sure they suggested follow up anyways. Just call and express your concerns and ask (firmly) to be moved up.

    GBS treatment??

    This was one of our monitors this year. Too many of our moms weren't getting treated in time. I'm assuming it was a pharmacy issue, because L&D started keeping PCN in the pyxis for quicker administration, and we have somehting like 90$ increase in timely treatment. Of course, we still have to transition baby, but it sure does save the baby alot of bloodwork and cultures! It is my understanding that the docs are stressing the importance of getting to the hospital quickly to start treatment once labor has begun. Our hospital's policy is at least one, but preferably 2 rounds of PCN at least 4 hours before delivery. Anything less that that is considered "not treated" and full work-up is required. Heather

    Nurses Diverting Drugs?

    Absolutely. But it doesn't change how difficult it is to get the drug. It just signs your name to it. Which, in the throws of addiction, no addict really cares about.

    No, the pyxis does not solve the problem, it just makes every person that gets into it accountable for being in it. Leaves more of a trail.

    Was I wrong or would you be mad too??

    Not too sick to float? This sounds like you weren't well enough to be anywhere other than in bed.

    Whether or not you should have been the one to go back to OB isn't really the point here. You really shouldn't have been at work at all if you were sick.

    Professional women HELP!!!!

    WOOT! Well said Renee. When you have kids, you have to be ready to give them everything. Doesn't matter when it happens, but what you are wiling to put into it when it does.

    Because I have 45 year old primips all the time. Nobody says you HAVE to have kids by a certain age (well, your mom might, but you can't really factor that advice in )

    Nurses Diverting Drugs?

    They're addicts. The only thing they're thinking about is a fix. It has nothing to do with feeling invinsible or untouchable. It is not a rational thought process at all. As for how big of a problem it is and publications of liscense revocations, the Ohio BON publishes a quarterly newsletter. In it are listed all actions against liscenses, and their degree of action. "Narcotics Restriction" is one listed, and your name and liscense number are posted.

    Cpr

    My CPR renewal is built into my yearly hospital recertification day. We have a day every year during our anniversary month that we recert in all that boring stuff. Every other year it automatically includes CPR. Kinda nice! No brainer for me!

    Same way. You'll have to recert every 1-2 years, depending on your facility. Good luck!

    I do. As I was reading, I was thinking, "oh yeah, let's give everyone just enough info....." Kinda like how I used to read books about eating disorders just to get good ideas. It happens. It's sad. The end.

    Best compliment ever!!

    Cool! These are the moments I try to remember when I'm having a bad day. I have 4-5 patients a day, and it will be difficult for me to remember most of their names in a week, or a month, or a year. If you're good, they'll always remember your name!
