A little follow-up on my folks from a couple of weeks ago. I did all of the occurrence paperwork, emailed our nurse manager and clinician and met with the nurse manager as well. Obviously, I am in the clear as I was the one busting ass to get things the way they needed to be. The nurse I got signout from is going to be "educated" in the way things are supposed to run. I think he might have to do additional time in one of the ICU's so he understands what critical care is supposed to be (and maybe what a sick patient looks like?!?!) Risk management is also getting involved and I have to be interviewed by one of the big shots about what happened from my perspective.

Good. I hate it when sloppy nursing is overlooked as "too busy" or "they were swamped". We are all suppose to be looking out for our patient's. Period. You go girl!!!!!!

First time reading your blogs. I am also a "night shifter"--we are a strange breed--but we know what is right! I just started back into hospital nursing a little over a year ago--interesting and soo much more to know than when I was in a hosp. setting years ago. good luck and keep on keeping on-(sorry showing my age!)
