More tips from the Nurses

I was perusing the contents of a “transport box” the other day, and marvelled that there were so many drugs in it. This isn’t our code/resuscitation box, this is taken with the patient when a transport is made from ER to another critical care area.
push faster, please

I mentioned the surplus of meds to the senior (but very very youthful) nurse present, who held forth with the following advice: “If you use this many drugs, you’re not pushing fast enough”. Words to live and transport by.

  1. True words of genius…or may just a few too many disaterous “transports”!

  2. Devil Doc 517 says:

    This is so true. BUT when you have to push and try to do CPR. It get a little hard for the nurses to bark at us to speed up. Especialy when a shock is advised and they don’t have a clue how to use the Defib.
