Night Shift Myths: Throwback Episode ft. Andrew Craig

Night Shift Myths: Throwback Episode ft. Andrew Craig

Andrew and Adrianne talk about common myths held about nurses working the night shift. Night nurses can’t help but cringe when folks say to us “you must love how quiet night shift is, with all the patients sleeping”. Um, not exactly.

Talking with a Medical Examiner Investigator Pt. 2

Talking with a Medical Examiner Investigator Pt. 2

I think part two of my talk with Dorothy is as profound as it is irreverent. Dorothy explains how people die as they lived and we ponder elements of 'a good death'. We absolutely must address the need for a morbid sense of humor in high-stress, high-trauma fields, as evidenced by almost every joke we crack. Then we dig deeper into her work as a medical examiner investigator and explore the classification system used to document death by the Medical Examiner.

Dan DiMonte Returns Pt 2: Perks of Nurse Schedules, Oversaturation of Travelers and Special Connections with Patients.

*the scheduling perks of working as a per diem nurse
*the oversaturation of travel nurses in some places
*Adrianne's thoughts on her first experience as a New Hire Preceptor
*how nursing is helping Dan chase his musical dreams
*special connections with patients

Dan DiMonte Returns Pt 1: Pondering Medical TV Shows, Indwelling Catheter Alternatives, and Musical Interludes

Travel nurse Dan DiMonte returns for the longest recording in MRC history (don't worry, we've distilled it down to the best parts). Adrianne and Dan sit down for a morning chat and chai which turned into afternoon tea. In part 1, they discuss a wide range of topics including:
*the automation of nursing
*indwelling catheter alternatives
*Dan takes a terrible patient assignment
*the effects of Med TV shows on patient perceptions
*shitty trash cans
and Dan may have accidentally created the new talent portion of the show.

Join us for all this and more!

Designer Scrubs, Favorite tools, Poop, Drug Diversion, and more...

Andrew is back from his internet hiatus to join Adrianne for a discussion that is as all over the place as a confused patient in a low bed. They topic hop from designer scrubs and the social and professional implications, their favorite tools on the unit, plans for a poop-tastic future episode and the ever-serious topic of drug diversion by nurses. They also talk about a bunch of other miscellaneous things on their minds despite the internet cutting out a few times (yes, we're still DIY with WiFi).

Guardians of Sleep

A technology revolution occurred in the NUHQ with the purchase of a new mic. The Blue Yeti isn't a sponsor, but boy was Adrianne excited to brag about it this week.

This episode is all about the most (debatably) precious commodity in the hospital...sleep. How do we destroy it and how do we protect it? Listen in for some tips on how to assess and improve the noise and sleep disruptions on your unit and in your patients' rooms. 

After you listen, hit the comments with your best Sleep Guardian tips, or tell us what disruptions you wish you could fix, but don't know how.

Allison's Vertigo and Getting into Nursing School

While the process of getting accepted into a nursing program is enough to make your head spin, the vertigo in this episode is unrelated to the school acceptance letter. Join Adrianne as she meets up again with her friend, Allison, about getting accepted into her desired program. The whole time, Allison's room is spinning, so many thanks to her for putting up with this podcast nonsense again. 

Go back to hear her MRC debut in the episodes Adventures of a Proto-Nurse 1 & 2.

Hospitality for Traveling Nurses

Adrianne has some thoughts on how a staff nurse should treat a float or a traveling nurse - very specific thoughts. She shares some opinions of how we as staff nurses should be treating our travelers and floating nurses from the moment they arrive on the unit. A basic level of friendliness, professionalism and a crash course of the unit is minimum, folks. We end with the question posed: Is being friendly a responsibility of all nurses? Is refusing to do so adding to the bully culture of our industry? Share your thoughts and opinions.

Malpractice, Ebola and Picketing, Oh MY!

This week, Adrianne and Andrew give their two cents on nurses carrying malpractice insurance, crossing picket lines to go to work, Andrew admits he'd jet at the first sign of a storm with a human name, and Adrianne describes the creative, yet disgusting off-label uses for a Yankauer.

Things We Love About Nursing Vol. 1

Adrianne wakes Andrew up from a deep sleep to make a list of things we love about our profession...you know, normal stuff.

We bet you won't guess some of the things on our list. No, this time we don't include spontaneous vacation time or patients that can clean their own behinds, but we think our selections rank at the top. This is just the first part of many as we attempt to balance out all the complaining we did in our 'Pet Peeves' episodes.

What are your favorite things about nursing? We'd love to hear your comments and stories.
