  1. Coma scale

    On our unit (ICU), we do GCS either Q2, Q4, or Q6. It's a quick and easy way to document any changes in LOC and it doesn't take too long!
  2. Hey, I'm all for that! But that's not our policy, so we have to change them. Not trying to say it's best policy, just our current one...so it should be followed by everyone unless there's a documented reason why it shouldn't. It looks bad on me when ...
  3. Leaving empty wrappers everywhere but in the trash! Leaving in a PIV longer than policy because "it works fine" or the patient is a hard stick. At least TRY to get a new one started, or call IV therapy if you tried and failed. Don't just leave it for...
  4. Bags for the workplace

    Yep those are it! Both the horizontal tote and vertical tote have a laptop slot and are big enough to be school bags. I have the horizontal one and love it...some of my friends had the vertical one and loved it too! Can't go wrong :)
  5. Bags for the workplace

    P.s. I monogrammed all of my cinda b :)
  6. Bags for the workplace

    I'm currently OBSESSED with cinda b bags. Check out her website. They're similar to Vera Bradley, but they're made of a nylon fabric that is water and stain resistant...and totally cavi-wipe-able. She makes several tote bags that would be big enough ...
  7. I'm a new nurse in orientation in the ICU. I've already learned so much, and I can't wait to learn even more! My preceptor and the nurses on my unit are great about sharing their "secrets of success," and I would love to hear yours. What makes your d...
  8. Pay for parking?

    I don't pay for parking, but there is no designated employee parking. There's just a huge parking garage that visitors and employees alike May park in for free. Fine with me because it's free covered parking!!
  9. What's your Myers-Briggs personality type?

    ESTP in critical care
  10. Help!!!

    Heck no you didn't lose your chance. As long as they have the right resume then you're fine on that front. Chances are they'll just disregard the first one you sent as if it never happened.
  11. Best transition into ICU/CCU?

    A stepdown unit or a telemetry unit would both be beneficial...you'll learn a lot either place ?
  12. Scrubs for a tiny girl with a J Lo booty

    I'm no size 2, but my booty does take me up from the 6 my waist says I should wear to a nice 8 or 10. I love my Koi scrubs for so many reasons. In particular, the Lindsey pants and the Kaitlyn and Justine tops. Tons of pockets in the pants, elastic A...
  13. Winging the NCLEX

    I passed in 75 with very little preparation. My school did put us through Hurst in our last month before graduation, so keep in mind that I had that under my belt. But other than sitting through the class, I didn't do hardly any preparation on my ow...
  14. Nursing Jobs/Salaries

    @mee9mee9 I think they mean it's just easier to get lost in the crowd. HCA is a big company, and like at any big company, it's hard to cater to the needs of each individual employee. Also my friends at the HCA hospitals are mostly not on med surg flo...
  15. Ice Bucket challenge

    I did the challenge, donated a small amount, and challenged several others to do the same. I know my $10 doesn't really amount to much in the grand scheme of things, but I think it's so wonderful how much awareness this social media trend has brought...
