    Is everything computerised where you work?

    "I will use a sphyg if I have a b/p that is extremely out of range. One important facet to know is to always use the right size cuff". Occasionally I have to use a sphyg and can't always find the right cuff. Should you use children's cuff with elderly people with very, very thin upper arm?

    I am so confused...

    Sounds to me like your DON overreacted. This could have easily been straightened out. Next time don't say "I can't". Just say "I have meds on the cart, I will find someone who can help you" or something like that. If they fire you over it then they should not complain about being short of staff.

    Medication Aides

    I personally believe in primary nursing. There are still many nurses who can do everything themselves. There are those who need a little help and there are those who delegate their whole medpass and treatments and still need help and that is where we come in.

    Drug seeking patients?

    "...we're not here to judge, and if the doc has meds prescribed, then the pt gets them when available. It's not MY call..."
