Law Bans Nurses' Overtime, Nursingdiscussions.com:"After a five-year battle, New Jersey has a state law barring hospitals and nursing homes from forcing health care employees to work overtime except in emergencies. Who does the law affect? The law covers all New Jersey hourly workers who provide patient care or clinical services, including nurses, nurses' aides, pharmacists, therapists, technicians who do tests and similar workers, but not doctors, who work at hospitals, nursing homes and in home health care. Nurses and union officials said the law, only the second in the nation, should improve patient safety and prevent mistakes that people who have been on the job for up to 16 hours can commit."

"Learning The Bones." Nursingadvocay.org" Thoughtful, insightful and objective analysis from the Center staff--thank you. While I can understand why some readers would find the subject or its treatment uncomfortable or disturbing, that is clearly the point. As a piece of writing, as art, the piece works. And I agree that it casts no particular aspersions on nurses as a group."

Levophed (Norepinephrine, Levartenerol)):

What's up with LEVOPHED? Nursingdiscussions.com:"Have you guys noticed an increase in the use of Levophed as a front line medication for hypotension/shock. It used to be the absolute last ditch medication. Remember Lev-o-fed...leave-'em-dead? Did I miss some recently published study?

Liability (Nursing Malpractice)

Licensed Practical Nurses Licensure (Nursing)
    See also:

    how many nurses have had lost there license because of the board of nursing, Topix.com:"I went with a friend to the board of nursing and i was just shocked that most nurses didnt have an representation but nursing board had a lawyer there. But most nurses didnt know that this lawyer was not there to help them but to throw them under the bus and make them jump through hoops to get there license back . This angers me and i would like to start a union for nurses and make sure this doesnt happen to no more good nurse or doctors and the board of nursing will have to pay with a class action law suit and if alot of nurses and doctors have been wrongfully accussed without representation then we will have a good case and a good shot at making a difference i know that nurses jobs are very hard jobs to follow and very hard to quit after you have been doing this job for months and years after education and work experience, lets make a change for a diffence message me and lets get this started"

Long Term Care, Nursing Homes, Geriatrics:

    Killing at nursing home raises broader concerns, Nursingdiscussions.com:"I'd really like to believe this is an isolated incident, one resident fatally attacking another. However, it is becoming more and more common. Specially as Alzheimer's and other types of dementia type populations are increasing."

    ******************************************************

    Need Opinions on the Legality or Ethics:"I have worked in a long-term care facility now for about 3 months.We have about 60 residents.Nurses are abondoning ship one by one. We have a few dedicated nurses who are taking on more and more hours to make up for the shortage of nurses. My gripe? When is it appropriate for a DON to tell me I should overlook something illegal or unethical? We had a LPN working in the facility for 2 months on a non-renewed license. The DON hired her back. This LPN has caused more havic and problems for the facility than I can name. Also, I am finding documentation of neuro checks being done when the resident was at the hospital. Should I even continue? Please read this list and tell me if I am totally crazy to work for this facility."

    Nurses Aides, Can't Live With Them. . ., Nursingdiscussions.com:"During my clinicals, we were at a local unionized nursing home. I remember one day I was supposed to be shown how to give a swedish bath. The two CNAs that I was with put an incontinence pad on the tub, put the female resident on the tub and accompanied me to the shower room. AFter telling me where everything was, they left. Oh, I forgot to mention that this poor old sweet woman has contractures. THey merely left after saying "If you need help, pull the string." I had told them TWICE that I had never done this before. After three attempts, I decided the call light was not going to get their attention."

    Nurse to Patient Ratio in a Nursing Home:"Does anyone out there know if there is a certain Nurse to Patient Ratio in Nursing Homes? This refers to LPN's on Night shift with no RN's available. We have 61 Residents and at times only one nurse on night shift? Is this Legal? To me, as a nurse you are putting your career on the line taking on this responsiblity."

    ******************************************************

    What to think about nurses who make up accucheck, Nursingdiscussions.com:"I know of 2 nurses in the facility where I work who change the accucheck numbers to lower numbers just so they wont have to call the doc. We have several residents who if their blood sugar is above 200 the doc has to be called. These nurses hate to talk to our medical director. This is falsifying medical records if I am not mistaken. The DON looks over it. Have any of you ever experienced such a thing in your line of nursing? Its very important that our residents are being monitored closely. I dont think its funny or amusing. These nurses tell me I am being too serious and shouldnt be so picky. I am sorry, but I didnt become a RN to make up things about our residents and not report it to the doc. Any one else with the same problem? or any suggestions?"

    Working to improove (Going Back To School, LPN, Education, Professional Development):"I am an L.P.N. with 10 years experience. I have done it all...surgery, doctors office, Tx. nurse in nursing homes, infection control, and now consulting. This is a new challenge all its own and I fear that I need more and new resources. I consult for a specialty bed and oxygen provider. We do D.M.E. and also have a closed door Rx. I have been with this company for the last 2 years and have a pretty solid position, however.... I now want to take this to the next level. I know getting my R.N. is the next obvious jump but I don't know that I have the time to focus on that step yet."

    Help! Other ways from LVN to RN?:"I started out as an Air Force corpsman and I was in for 8 years. I voluntered for as much extra education as I could (pharmacy, suturing, ACLS, etc.) and was certified in everything. I was given certificates for all. I need not tell you if anyone did military duty in the medical corps as I did that you are allowed to do many things that only an RN in the civilian world is allowed to do. When I got out I worked in various clinics and because of my skills I did a lot of work under the doctors licenses as they utilized all I had to offer. I decided to get my nursing license so I gave all my military paperwork and certification to the California LVN board and they authorized me to test. The test took me about 40 minutes and 3 weeks later I had my license."

    New Grad In ER (Former LPN):"I have been an LPN for 15 years and will graduate in May with my RN. I would really like to work in an ER. What kind of continuing education would make me a great ER nurse and help land a job."
