  1. Yeah, seems like it would be the best option, but it makes sense so it will never work lol.
  2. With all the pro/anti vax ideas going around, this is an interesting watch if you have 15 minutes to spare.
  3. It doesn't help that they are firing unvaccinated nurses.
  4. They converted our break room to a post op unit (to make the original post op room a Covid unit) last week they reconverted it to a post op room. Maybe in a month or so we'll get our break room back lol.

  6. The ED I used to work in has lost 8 more nurses since I put in my notice. Meanwhile they keep offering new hire bonuses instead of retention bonuses.
  7. After watching their game I think the Cocks win by a few scores. They got pushed around and gave up a ton of rushing yards. Look for the RB's to put up some big numbers.
  8. We were running low on O2 pressure a few weeks ago
  9. I work part time at a post acute rehab.. getting lots of 30-40 year old post COVID pts, it's crazy.
  10. I'm going to a different system and moving to the OR. There is a ton of great travel assignments right now, I've seen some offering $10+k/week. If I was single I would be all over them.
  11. The last few nights we had 40+ in the waiting room, all rooms full, all hall beds full, and only 2-3 vents for the entire facility. We got to the point where we were litterally using mass casualty triage protocols. So glad last night was my last night.
  12. Lol make a Covid pt move blocks around to get a bed. Good luck with the process keep us up to date!
  13. How? There's no database of who does and doesn't have the vaccine.
  14. We can't turn anyone away. While it is a well intended law, it costs a lot of time and resources, even pre COVID.
  15. Same reason nurses are. It's not worth losing a license over.
  16. RE prioritizing beds for vaccinated is illegal. EMTALA. We have to see and treat them, just like all the homeless people who pretend to be suicidal Everytime the weather is bad, and the drug seeking toe pains and the "chest pains" who use EMS as the tax payer funded Uber.
  17. Our ED physicians see like 12 pts a night at this point. All our beds are full holding admitted patients.
  18. I did. I worked a notice. 2 shifts left. The issue many have is that the same hospitals that forced us to work for over a year unvaccinated taking unsafe ratios, making us reuse single use PPE, all while withholding raises and paying travelers 3x as much now want to force us to get vaccinated by a non FDA approved vaccine or they will be fire us. Also, the same people will write us up for eating lunch at the nurses desk because we don't have time or staff to take a lunch...then they bitch because you didn't clock out for the lunch they didn't provide staffing to cover... I think it's just a lot of fatigue and pushback against the status quo at this point.
  19. Yup. I said a that to say we're tired. Many are leaving the front, some the profession all together. Those that want to stay are taking contract jobs paying $4.5-$10k/week. There's no way small critical access hospitals can compete. It's the same reason I'm leaving, I'm tired of unsafe ratios and making 1/3 of what the travelers taking the same assignments make.
  20. I've had numerous patients who will tell you they won't take the vaccine because:"we don't really know what's in it"... Yet they don't ask twice when I give them a bag of meds that I say will help them feel better...
  21. I work with a number of nurses and physicians that for their own reasons are hesitant to take the vaccine. Some have a hx of clots, some are pregnant, or plan to be. Others just want more data and an FDA approval etc. We recently were told that vaccination was going to be required and there was, imo some justifiable backlash.
  22. Hey, just saw this, thanks. I worked the weekend and it was wild, holding 20+ in the Er some for 36+ hours. Last night, we intubated 5 (in my shift inherited 3 from days). It got to the point that the hospital can't provide enough O2 pressure to run the vents on a normal settings so they have to set the vents on higher than normal rates. We ran out of RSI drugs in our med room and had to get the pharmacy to bring more. The sad thing is, there is about a 17-20% survival rate once you get a vent. We're doing everything we can, HiFlow O2 cannula and a non Rebreather and they are still sating 80-85%. It's close to a death sentence.
  23. I took a job in the OR at a different facility. Still nursing, just not putting up with the BS of the ER.
  24. I think Beamer needs to hang half a hundred or more. Prove to everyone that all the talk about a wide open big gain offense wasn't just lip service.
