Hi all is a quiet night in the inner city medical center, the admissions to the telemetry floor has been light tonight. We are pushing into the final few weeks of the first semester of RT school. We are covering O2 delivery devices and more practice on competencies this week getting all the fledgling RT students read for their final practicals. If we all make it we are moving on to hospital clinical's next semester and class room and lab classes too. I am so glad I got all my general education classes done so I only have the RT classes to worry about. To all the RT's out there thank you for your support and your friendship you are a great group of people and I am proud to be able to call myself one soon
take care RT/Medic

So it was time to stick the little rubber arm a very few of us got it on the first stick :) the rest it took a little digging and a couple of resticks. then there was just one left. I don't think they ever held a needle in there life before never mind use it. It looked to me like she used the the Jason or the Micheal Myers technique on the arm she took the needle in hind like a killer holds a knife in the slasher movies and drove it home with so much force she buried the needle all the way in the arm. It looked like the most violent IM injection ever given. I did my best not to laugh and after a moment of shock we waled her through it and she did allot better the second time around. I know she will do wonderful as will most of the class they just need to keep there confidence up and we will form into a tight well tuned group of RTs.

The rule identifies eight conditions — including three serious types of preventable incidents sometimes called "never events" — that Medicare no longer will pay for. Those conditions are:
• Objects left in a patient during surgery
• Blood incompatibility
• Air embolism
• Mediastinitis, which is an infection after heart surgery
• Urinary tract infections from using catheters
• Pressure ulcers, or bed sores
• Vascular infections from using catheters
Is this rule is going to include Nursing Homes too. It should, I have seen a few Patients come from them with UTI's Falls, and Bed sore. You know they will find a way to pass the buck to the other patients. hmmmmm I can see it now I aspirin was 15.99 now at big blue hospital its 99.95 ahhhh the wonderful world of medicine you just got to love it.
Yesterday was the first day back to school and after working all night the last thing i was looking forward to was a 6 hour class on PPD and Infection control techniques. but i did good I did not nod off at all. one thing for all students to remember. RT/Medics rule number one caffeine is your friend. It will always be there and will never leave you. Till next time folks I hope to see you back again.
