  1. My girlfriend has a step daughter who had to have a trach due to structural deterioration and closing up. After a month or two, she had a T-tube put in and she went back to work in a nursing home as a charge nurse. We don't understand how she can do...
  2. Closing the Chapter on SNFs

  3. Don't be afraid to go for it. You know how to do your job and what not to do. You will be an asset to any other facility. Emphasize your attention to detail and your desire to increase your experiences and knowledge in a quality facility. Nurses li...
  4. would you take a job with a mean doctor?

    A mean doctor is as bad as a mean charge nurse. It quickly turns into a toxic work environment that you don't want to go to every day. The stress and tension created is not worth your emotional or professional health. Life is too short and no one ...
  5. Overweight Healthcare Workers

    This would be incredible to have it happen. One place I worked closed the cafeteria and night shift got stuck with bring your own or eat questionable items out of vending machines. No salads or fresh fruits or veggies. And as for work/life balance,...

  7. Where are all the "older" nurses?

    They burn out or get injured from consistently working short and find something else to do within the nursing field besides direct care or they quit and do something else. That has been my experience with nurses I know. And I know a lot of them fro...

  11. Nurses smoking weed?

    Medical marijuana has no THC and thus no high. Relieves pain without any impairment. Better than narcotics! Safer to work under. Should not be a problem as long as you have prescription and your state approved medical marijuana use. Comes in a c...
  12. Isolation - yes/no

    I believe your patient satisfies all the criteria outlined in the RAI. Code for isolation. I have done this and never had a problem. Any place I have ever worked required more than just gloves for someone with C-diff. That is a totally contact is...
  13. I'm a Man, Can I be Successful as An OB Nurse

    I could care less what sex the person is providing my care. One of the best nurses I ever had take care of me in the hospital was a male nurse who had to put in a foley and give me a shot in rear. He was very good at his job and no different to me ...
