The #1 mistake all Nurses make when giving an enema

The #1 mistake all Nurses make when giving an enema

The triple H’s:

  • High
  • Hot
  • Helluvalot

Enemas are the bane of a Nurses’ existence (or maybe it was just me?) There is nothing enjoyable about administering an enema. I mean… we’re talking about poo.

It’s one of the few interventions we Nurses perform… where we KNOW ahead of time we’ll regret the outcome. We’re set up for a hot mess (if ya know whaddayamean).

Who in their right mind, as a Nurse, would get excited or happy that we have to perform an intervention that we’re going to have to clean up???

What if I told you, not all enemas are created equal? What if I told you there was a way to give that darn enema without the hassle of the clean up?

Dare I say… enema’s could be neat and tidy???

The #1 reason why Nurse residency programs are important

The #1 reason why Nurse residency programs are important

There is a known learning gap between what they teach you in Nursing school… and what you actually do as a practicing Nurse.

The old adage of “What they don’t teach you in Nursing school” can make the transition from student to professional very challenging, so there are programs that have been created to help lessen that burden.

As most Nurses are well aware the best way to master a skill is to gain experience at actually doing the skill.  These residency programs do just that. Sometimes called ‘internships’ or ‘externships’, nurse residency programs are out to bridge that gap… or at least shorten the distance between school and practice.

Types of residency programs:

  1. Summer internship
  2. Externships

The goal of these programs is to gain experience and sharpen your clinical skills. You literally “walk the walk” of a Nurse. You get your hands dirty.

2 silly mistakes every Nurse will make during a code blue

2 silly mistakes every Nurse will make during a code blue

We’ve all been there.

Code Blue faux pas. I’ve decided that there should be some basic rules when running a code.

Not knowing what to do can be downright humorous sometimes. Everyone has that first time being in charge of the meds during a Code Blue.

Yes, I’m poking a lil’ fun at the lack of familiarity. During the ‘code’, bystanders and extra staff can sometimes be thrust into a role that they may not be ready for. Whether a lack of staffing, the emergency nature of the ‘code’ or the good ole’ fashion ‘close rule’, there are Nurses that will have to man the medications during one of the most stressful experiences as a Nurse (especially a NEW Nurse)

We stumble through which drawer has the correct medication and all of us have struggled with the ‘quick release’ medication box….

I’m poking fun…. because in a galaxy far, far away… I was once that Nurse.

This is my humorous way of helping you avoid my faux pas. May the force be with you.

P.S. Yes, there are rules to running a code blue and one of them is properly trained team members. This scenario is just a comical experience I’ve encountered. No patient was harmed during this experience.
