    ICU NURSES/OTHER NURSES Dealing with COVID patients

    In my unit we had two fully vaccinated people die of COVID. One had advanced leukemia and a trashed immune system. The other was a healthy young (31) man who came in to our ED with SOB and was dead less than four days later. Had our docs stumped and ...

    I'm Done

    The medium-sized hospital (275 beds) where I work only has one ICU. But thanks to the unvaxxed we have had to open another ICU for COVID patients again. We first did this last Winter and it was awful, but it was nobody's fault. Now it is. W...

    I'm Done

    Nothing I said suggested or implied hatred towards the unvaxxed or anyone else and it's dishonest of you to falsely accuse me of hating. You have been consistently dishonest in this discussions, completely fabricating lies several times. ...
  4. There were two studies presented at a Wisconsin AACN conference I attended back in (I think) 2012 that supported smaller is better. Unfortunately I took the information I needed and have no memory of what the studies were called. I do remember that o...
  5. Even though smaller is better when administering vasoactive drips in a PIV, I naturally assumed that the small bore IV would not be a critical patients only access. Two 18ga in place until a central line can be placed and then Ill add a small bore fo...

    Infuriating Code Status Changes

    Did you consider calling the cops and trying to get staff charged with battery? Something I would have definitely considered.

    Infuriating Code Status Changes

    Nearly every advanced directive I've ever encountered was totally useless. Containing useless terms like "persistent vegetative state", or "brain dead". As if your body can't rot away in the ICU in the absence of brain death. My advanced dire...

    Clinical Rotation In COVID Unit

    Traditional nursing students don't do clinical on our covid wards. But some, like those assigned to a primary preceptor in accelerated BSN programs, take whatever patient their preceptor takes. They get fit tested by the hospital and N95 mask are (no...

    Does the federal Covid mandates apply to homecare nurses?

    Babylon Bee is fake news.
  11. Nodays with small portable bedside ultrasound machines I can pretty much put and IV wherever I prefer it.

    Docs & Nurses = Murderers

    revolting
  13. When running vasopressors in PIVs smaller is better. "Hemodilution is the solution" You want a relatively small catheter in a relatively large vein. Blood flow around the catheter helps deliver the medication where it's needed, and reduces ve...

    Infuriating Code Status Changes

    Been there, doing that right now. This is why we have slow codes. Oh I know the ethics people always get their underpants in a bunch when I mention a slow code, but curiously they are never around when we could really use an ethics team, as d...

    Docs & Nurses = Murderers

    Obviously I'm dismayed at how evile these people are and showing how we are targets of evil, deranged people now.

    Vaccination Mandating

    Ah, revisionist history. In reality president Trump himself down played the severity of corona virus and admitted it. https://www.forbes.com/sites/tommybeer/2020/09/10/all-the-times-trump-compared-covid-19-to-the-flu-even-after-he-knew-covid-...

    Are there any travel nurse jobs for Unvaccinated Nurses?

    First you falsely accuse (aka bearing false witness, aka lying) hherrn of whining, THEN say we should stick to the data? do you hear yourself?

    Vaccination Mandating

    The only people I've ever heard say covid was just the flu is Trump and his sycophants. https://apnews.com/article/virus-outbreak-donald-trump-ap-fact-check-anthony-fauci-flu-fe474f0c15f76adf324791a2cfc1e2bb https://www.politifact.com/fact...

    Vaccination Mandating

    I was responding to a post about nurses leaving. He even says "nurses" three times and makes no mention or anyone else. In an organization of 12,000+ people the loss of under 100 people is negligible and I happen to know that much of the lo...

    Vaccination Mandating

    Indeed, I find your opinion of those vital people to be shocking. Those of us who work bedside are super aware of just how valuable and vital they are. I can't imagine how you could have formed such a low opinion of them or why you believe ...

    Vaccination Mandating

    100% fake news. The health system I work for has over 12,000 employees. Less than 100 chose to quite rather than be vaccinated. Zero were physicians, and only one was an RN and he is just plain awful and they were building a case to fire him for inco...

    Patient Abandonment

    Once you have accepted care of a patient by taking report on them you are responsible until relived by another appropriate health care professional and have given them report. If you haven't handed off care to another appropriate health care...

    Writing “poop” is unprofessional?

    No, you are correct and your DON is incorrect. It IS no big deal. No way I would have cooperated or complied with that write up. I would have refused to even address or discuss it. Any good manager would have round filed (thrown away) that ...
