  1. Infection control issue with pts. in precautions

    The actions of the staff are not excusable but not surprising. A friend had an experience, at a major medical center in Brooklyn, that involved MSRA. Her physicians, the house staff, the nursing staff, the dietary staff, none followed isolation pre...
  2. working after hip replacement

    Talk to your DON prior to having the surgery. And speak with the doctor doing it. At great many will say one can return to their usual things after three to six months. Explain to him the physical aspects of your position-the number of actual minu...
  3. MedError/Dismissal...What2Do

    As a former clinical instructor, I would like to make a few observations. 1. A student that does not know the possible negative outcomes of giving medication to a patient with a pressure of 96/61 RED FLAG. 2. A student that forgets to assess a spi...

    I have had to rather unusal experiences, more then15 years apart. In the first one, I was given penicillin, by error, in the ER. I suffered an arrest and had to be tubed. I remember floating above my body and watching the staff work on me. Severa...

  9. Pins and needles - 75 questions

    I know that my comments will not address you issues but I feel I need to make them. How would you like to sit for boards, for two days and take different parts with numerous questions? And then wait six to eight weeks to find out if you had passed ...

  11. Too Many Crabby Nurses!!

    I am very aware of USF's programs, both the basic as well as RN program, thu I have not been around it in five years. If they have too few clinical instructors, that staff assumes the responsibility of supervising them then they have gone down hill,...
  12. Too Many Crabby Nurses!!

    First, no student takes any telephone orders, let alone transposes them or carries them out independently, in any of the programs I have taught in. Second, no student gives IV pushes, unless under the direct supervision of her/his clinical instruct...

    Well kisses me and color me green . Know the area well. My dad was born and raised in South Troy. Want the best turkey sandwich, in the Northeast? Go to the South End Tavern, just before the bridge. Samaritan is an excellent program. And I gra...
