    Crushing Oral Medications...New Regulation

    Pudding and applesauce or ice cream are not necessarily used to 'hide' meds. They help make the meds more pallatable.

    Why your avatar?

    Not really sure...

    Is leaving before hurricane abandonment?

    And the hospital should evacuate too so we don't find the patients in the news waist deep in water.

    Does anyone here take their own bp manually?

    to rephrase: if you had to monitor your bp at home what would you use?

    I've tried this but found it very awkward. I normally use OMRON electronic bp monitor.
  8. I definitely would not give it.

    Best Mispronunciation?

    At work some residents enjoy a play with words (cimanon, simenet,etc...). You got to lighten up sometimes. S NILE EVERYONE!

    Possible alleged neglect complaint... I hate snfs

    I am not sure if "I'm on break" was the best response. "I'm presently off the clock" sounds better and add that you'll find another nurse on the floor to assist.

    Narcotic counts

    Often times discrepancies without med errors happen because because people are not counting the number of doses in one card. For example we get a card of 30 doses but they're half pills so often times the narc paper will say 15 pills (whole)received or sometimes pharmacy will lsend 2 boxes of fentanyl with 5 patches in each but on each box the pharmacy label will say 10patches. It can be really confusing and maddening at times especially for new people.

    Coworker physically abusive to patients

    Agreed. Some facilities will do something about it including mine. But from what the poster stated or implied most everyone there already knew or suspected. Hum...Would I stay there? NO. How much worse would it be after a few years if it's like that when you start working?

    Coworker physically abusive to patients

    Report it and be ready to leave your job because they won't believe you, or even if they believe you they won't do anything about it. If you don't lose your job you'll end up working in a very awkward environment and that's not worth it.

    Patient refusal to shower-neglect?

    Maybe so, but what about the rights of the other residents who share the same dining room? This is a reply to a resident's right to be 'as stinky as he or she wants'
