  1. The Essentials of Medication Reconciliation in Home Care

    Thank you for discussing such an important topic. Perhaps it’s implied but it seems some steps are missing. This is how I reconcile medications: Gather all meds in home. Verify which meds patient has been taking since last medical encounter. (ie si...
  2. without a job until after new years

    I might have missed it but why aren't you you bridging the job you had in nursing school until the grad program starts?
  3. Nurse Gives Lethal Dose of Vecuronium Instead of Versed

    I was thinking that I would not want my photo associated with this story.
  4. Nurse Gives Lethal Dose of Vecuronium Instead of Versed

    I agree. I'm not an acute nurse but regardless whether protocols were in place and/or followed, this nurse couldn't have tried harder to screw up. There had to be something going with her besides being rushed and working outside her scope. I think...
  5. RN's are you happy with your career, why or why not?

    I'm happy with my career and it's been very good to me. It's easy to be impactful everyday and make something cool happen. I've had many opportunities for growth and influence with much encouragement. It is hard work and the first years were the ro...
  6. Is this appropriate?

    As a case manager familiar with your patients you are being asked to contact the patients on your caseload to check in with them and let them know services are closed today and perhaps assess for needs that require attention. The weather makes trave...
  7. Just grin and bear it!

    Not our call to make but I view it as selfish and weak, it's neither love nor advocacy when the family prolong and/or add to the suffering. I feel for the OP.
  8. Shockingly low NP pay !

    Stock and housing market gullibility. That is such a great analogy. Especially with thread after thread claiming ignorance to the NP education and market trends. I haven't applied for NP and I've read enough to see many of the problems beginning year...
  9. I would advise my younger self to not look for the job to grow on me, to become something like able.. look at it as the opportunity it is, to learn and gain skill. Tell yourself every night that you don't need to like it or to feel confident. You'r...
  10. Sexual harrassment or just an old creep?

    Totally agree, be kind, direct and don't use your husband as the reason his behavior needs to change.
  11. My current employer offers near zero OOP healthcare insurance if care is received within its own system. That's not fair compared to what? To my former much smaller company that had such high premiums and huge deductible without office and prescripti...
  12. Here is an example of a clincal finding narrative for SOC

  13. nurses eat their young

    Never been bullied. Have been scolded, embarrassed, feelings hurt, vented on.. never bullied.
  14. New job offer, letter of resignation

    Confirming the offer is important but a concern of mine would be whether this a position that is hard to fill and/or they only want you so will postpone the start date due to your availability?
  15. New nurse getting yelled at by supervisor nurse

    Yelling/raised voice in of itself isn't an issue for me but a techibka HR issue and it can be unnerving when you lack confidence. I'd (and this is me who grew up at a time when being scolded by a senior nurse was practically a rite of passage) be m...
