What they didn’t teach you in Nursing school about placing an NG tube!!

That first time you placed an NG tube!! Do you remember it?

We all had to learn the skills needed to insert an NG, but nothing fully prepares you for placing that first NG on a real patient that is A+Ox3 [all my non-medical readers that means Alert and Oriented to person, place and time].

The number of success tips out there is unending. We’ve all heard them. I wanted to briefly mention my tip for placement success… but I REALLY wanted talk about the unmentionables that were skipped over during Nursing school.

I hope you’re listening… heh heh.

When the patient sexually harasses the Nurse

When the patient sexually harasses the Nurse

We’ve all dealt with or heard about sexual harassment from a patient. Oh, you know who I’m talkin’ about…

That patient that doesn’t understand professional boundaries.

That patient that thinks the hospital is a pick-up bar.

Or that patient who gets a lil “grabby”

The question is, what do you do about it? And better yet how do we prevent it from happening?

I offer some thoughts:

  1. Are you part of the problem
    -wardrobe?
    -body language?
    -communication?
    -physical assessment faux pas?
  2. Is the patient part of the problem
    -creeps will be creeps
    -thank you Hollywood
    -creepin’ creepy creep
  3. When it happens
    -stop it in its tracks immediately without fail
    -always stay professional
    -bring support

Nurses: Be careful who you purchase from on the internet

Nurses: Be careful who you purchase from on the internet

The internet can be a very tricky place. Especially when everyone is out to sell you something.
Nurses have taken to the internet for help in many areas of our profession, the least of which is searching for valid and reliable resource material.

Do you know anything about the person (or company) selling the product? Shouldn’t they know a thing or two about your profession if they’re selling you a product for your profession?

Beware my fellow brothers and sisters, online marketers are getting smarter.

That nifty product that is supposedly going to make your Nurselife easier…. who is actually selling the product? Is it a REAL Nurse? Or is it a really smart online marketer?

Share this with every Nurse, Nurse-to-be and Nurse-want-to-be you know.
