    Ventilator Tubing Condensation

    using Water Traps in ventilators OK. A fine solution. But: - If you positioning the pt the trapped water may flow back into the tube towards the pt or the machine. - A reservoir of warm water ist allways a germ-hotel.

    New grad community nursing questions

    Hi joshle that´s life. I also feel like Charly Chaplin in "modern times". The only way is, to talk with your company: They take a risk if they don't give you enough time to check the risks of the pt. : - decubitus, - level of awareness, - dehydration ....................... all this has to be documentated.

    "Pt´s and the time" is a neverending story. My favourite is : "Quater to eight is much to late and 7.45 much to early !"

    Dealing with Pets

    There´s nothing you can´t learn. Just visit a dog school ! You don´t need a own dog. Learn about dogs. How to read them and how to behave.

    Feeling embarrassed, ask the md a stupid question

    "There are no stupid questions, only stupid answers." Not to ask is a dangerous care error.
