  1. I'm doing an assignment where I have to fill out and chart on an imaginary patient. From vital signs to labs, to input and output, to if they have a foley. Normal charting on a patient... I don't know if i'm an idiot or what - but making this up is making me crazy. Its proving to be extremely hard because the only information I was given was: "Cerebral Edema r/t electrolyte imbalances. I have no idea where to start and finding information on it seems to be SO difficult. I feel like cerebral edema is so vague. Any help? Maybe websites I could use? I've never actually been allowed to chart yet, so all of this information is hard to understand, being that my instructor didn't really go over what all of these abbreviations meant..

    IV Question

    Hello Everyone, So I am currently a student about to graduate in May. My husband is overseas as a civilian and called me to let me know he is severely dehydrated and that a few nurses were trying to get fluids into him. Here's the story: He goes on to explain to me that they stuck him MULTIPLE times and that when they got it in - his blood backed up into the line and all the way into the bag and it filled up so quickly that the bag almost popped. I was mind blown, and I had no idea why this would happen..? Was it faulty equipment, was it something the nurse was doing wrong? Could there be something seriously wrong with my husband? He said the nurses and doctors were completely stunned and said they'd come back tonight or tomorrow to try and get fluids in him again..... He couldn't talk long so I wasn't able to get much information but he said he hasn't been able to hold even water down, hasn't eaten in a good couple days, and has "green diarrhea" multiple times a day. I'm extremely worried and have no idea why the this would happen. Is this a normal occurrence, should I know why this is happening? (blood backing up into the bag so quickly) Any help or explanation would be fantastic and MUCH appreciated. I've been reading in my books and I haven't really found anything..

    Lapin, someone mentioned it earlier in this thread. Not sure if they've deleted it or not. Go back a few pages and see. Not sure if the information is the same for LPN, though.

    Hmm. Maybe You can figure something out with Nancy. I'd try to get ahold of her sometime today, though.
  12. WithValor

    PHSC 2015 Nursing Hopefuls

    Yeah I would definitely go to the school. I really wish I could help you more! I'm sorry! Good luck with everything and I hope you get the information you seek Hope to see you at orientation! :)

    I'd rather not risk it. Contact Connie, she can tell you all you need to know. Remember the college is closed Friday's so I'd call ASAP.

    Unfortunately Maya we cannot give any information on what is in the packets; doing so could result in us losing our seats. I really wish o could help you, but instead of calling Nancy, I would try and contact Connie-she is the one who originally send out the packets. She would be able to help you. Her email is on the school website (Connie Kershey) I think?? What I can tell you is that orientation is this coming Monday so you should try and get that information ASAP because you have limited time to get everything done. Sorry I couldn't be more help

    Yeah I have no idea why taking it through PHSC is any different.. But as Lapin said, for some reason they're being super strict about it.
