    Elementary/Middle School Lunch Guidance

    "Forced" feeding has no place in a public school, and making someone get a lunch that they're not going to eat has some moral implications as well. If they're just being picky, well, the hunger experience should be a good teacher.

    DNP but still a staff nurse?

    Never be embarrassed to be doing actual nursing instead of paper-pushing...

    Mistake? Maybe?

    It seems that this "addendum" would need to be in the main order section (as a flag) in order to have a chance to be seen. Having it separate from the order and consent that say you can give the meds doesn't make sense.

    What do you do when parents scream at you?

    It's also helpful to have a witness for those "he said/she said/they said" complications that can come out of these interactions...

    Arguing Over a Patient Assignment

    I think that this is a side issue, ie the socio-economic aspect of the post that you're referring to. We ALL know of nightmare patients and patient families that will resist every attempt at resolving issues. They simply gain too much from their...

    Personal Cellphone Reliance at School?

    Hello, all. I work in a private school in which (to put it nicely) the organization blurs the lines between job and personal life. They use walkie-talkies for dismissal coordination, but during the day they rely on staff calling each other (or t...

    Working as a CNA in SNF vs. Assisted Living

    Are there ANY accreditation bodies responsible for licensing ALFs? If so, how can they ethically allow this to continue?
  14. I don't think you have anything to lose. Right now, they're not hiring you. What's the worst possible result of contacting them? They don't hire you.

    Here's one thing- They manage to (always) have a leisurely breakfast in the breakroom after report instead of hitting the ground running...

    Wearing Mask Incorrectly...

    I almost think that it'd be better to tell him he has to take it off if he's not going to wear it properly as he's modeling incorrect technique for the students who choose to continue to mask...

    What Does My 2022-2023 Wishlist Need?

    I find the saline spray bottles work fine. Plus, they're cheaper and there's no chance of an allergy issue. I distract the little ones by explaining to them how close saline is to the "recipe" of their blood...

    Working as a CNA in SNF vs. Assisted Living

    Like in almost any other situation, a lot will depend on how well managed the facility is. If you're looking for the most exposure to skilled nursing issues, e.g. dressings, tube feeding, equipment etc, a SNF will generally be better for you.
  23. How many write-ups for looking tired constitute a termination? I'm thinking I should have been let go a few months ago...

    Putting Your Health First

    Interesting way of looking at it- I've never heard framed like this.
  25. Many hospitals have (already employed) nurses who are on waiting lists to switch to days. The OP should think about that as well. I 100% agree with you that this could be interpreted as a bait-and-switch. The OP is applying for a nights position...
