  1. All out of Sterile Gloves

    Hi Wuzzie; Funny you should mention that because that was the first thing we asked. You should have seen the manager's face while she thought about the cost. Honestly though, we have no qualms about pilfering some of those kits for sterile gloves. It...
  2. All out of Sterile Gloves

    I'm sorry Hppy. I got rankled and you didn't deserve that response. You know, my infection control nurse said the same thing, but I just didn't want to accept it. OMG explaining this to clients who know darn well why we use sterile gloves was an expe...

  4. All out of Sterile Gloves

    Hi Hppy; First of all, we are not wasting sterile supplies on procedures that are often done with clean technique. My question, which I will reword: What happens when you have no sterile gloves for procedures that must be asceptic for patient safety?

    I was moved by your post. Thank you for sharing this.
  6. All out of Sterile Gloves

    Alibaba sellers have a lot of trouble differentiating between clean and sterile gloves. Has your agency bought medical supplies through this site before?
  7. All out of Sterile Gloves

    HI eerrmm, I have looked through WHO sites and documents. I posted my comment in the hope that someone else has seen a resource that I have missed.
  8. All out of Sterile Gloves

    I am in an ambulatory clinic and we are on our last box of sterile gloves. Does anyone here have experience with trying to be aseptic without sterile gloves? We do a lot of PICC and VAC dressings. I can't find any best practice documents that address...
  9. Wound Vac

    I haven't had a scrotal vac before, but I have had good success with using a sheet of hydrocolloid on the periwound and everywhere the skin is inflamed. It's a lot of cut and paste. Then I put the vac dressing right over top, and give a border of vac...
  10. Wound Vac Requisition

    In my clinic, we have a gentleman who has a vac between his great and third toe (second toe amputated), plus other wounds sites on the same foot. Great fun. We built up a 'dam' out of ostomy paste between the toes and wrapped the heck out that foot. ...
  11. Wound with no change, good or bad

    Is this a stage II ulcer or stage III? How is packing appropriate for stage II? Maybe that's a typo. I'm sure your hands are tied on this one, but it sounds like the main barrier to wound healing is the spouse. His needs are being met before hers ar...
  12. I would like to do some preliminary investigation into a target population of Millennials (18-35). I think that we are missing them (in our area) to some degree and I'd like to know how aware they are of public health resources. Before I approach my...
  13. Preparing for Toronto Public Health Nurse Interview

    If you work with Toronto Public Health, I would love to connect with you and find out what aspects of your role that you're excited about.
  14. Hello colleagues; I am hoping to qualify to for an interview with Toronto Public Health. It appears that they are hiring a number of positions across the GTA. At present, I don't have any direction as to which positions, specifically, are available a...
