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???

Should Nursing students work the NOC shift?

What has been your experience with student Nurses and the night shift? Do student Nurses rotate through the night shift as part of their curriculum?

If not, should it be? Should the night shift be an option for students?

I mean the reality is, many students are going to spend a fair amount of their first several years working the night shift, simply due to workplace needs and seniority (speaking from experience).

I admit there are pros and cons to placing students on the night shift. Do you placed them on the NOC just to say ‘they did it’?

Or, a better argument is they would get some good real-life experiences of the bedside Nurse.

The dedicated teaching time between the preceptor and student is up for debate. Some would argue they could have more time to ‘teach’ and not just direct. While others admit that many night shift are busier than the day shift… with less support staff.

Hmm…

Nursing students. Stop memorizing.

You don’t study to take an exam. You study for that moment when you are the only thing standing between your patient and the grave.

Stop freakin’ memorizing and start freakin’ learning.

The last time I checked….. Nursing is a cumulative profession. What you learn on day one will matter when you graduate…. it will matter 2 years later… it will mater 5 years later.. it will matter 10 years later….. trust me.

You aren’t learning to just get a good grade. You need to acquire, absorb and apply the concepts. Remember, you’re affecting human lives. You’re studying to make a difference. To improve someone’s life.
