when a family of 6 who’s been exposed to rabies shows up in the ED? It looks like this:
The nurses wound up assigning one nurse to this project for about an hour, calculating how much immunoglobulin for each (it’s body-mass based), filling out paperwork, etc. (Yes, there are only 4 charts in the picture, and there’s more than one nurse, but they were all working hard on the project when I walked by).
We’ve had enough rabies scares that I’ve been asked to talk about it at the next big nursing CME class, so that’ll give me even more to blather on about.
