Be helpful to each other. Haven't most of us experienced enough backbiting and negativity at work? And please don't use the phrase "eating our young". People that "eat their young" are just nasty people who are difficult to get along with. They are in every profession, every walk of life, and not just nursing. ~ Daytonite

    Care Plan Help

    Good diagnoses, but before making any goals, consider what nursing interventions you will order. The reason I recommend this is because your goals are what you expect to happen as a result of the nursing interventions being performed.

    effective breastfeeding care plan

    Do not mix interventions or goals for the mom with the neonate if the care plan is for the neonate.

    Need chest tube basics

    Because continuous bubbling means there is a leak in the system and therefore the chest tube is not able to do its job. Yes, it is supposed to bubble, but only on expiration when the lung is releasing air from the pleural space.
