Going to read it right after the chat! :) #RNchat 3/16/2010 12:16 mkopp1: #rnchat T1: prevention is key.

"Comfort Care" more acceptable. #RNChat 3/16/2010 12:16 NursingCenter: @StephenNP Thanks for the link...will read after RNchat! #rnchat 3/16/2010 12:16 lorryschoenly: Prevention is part of correctional chronic care model-yes.Death-no.

In mental health, we focus on the experience of recovery vs. illness or problem-based models. #RNChat #RNChat 3/16/2010 12:18 philbaumann: T1 We have a culture with an unhealthy view of death. We prolong suffering and curtail

The number of inductions and sections is higher than any other country 3/16/2010 12:18 CIHC_ca: RT @nursekama: Agree on prevention.

That needs to be more acceptable. #RNChat 3/16/2010 12:22 nursechenene: #RNchat I feel death is my enemy during traumas not when it is part of natures course. 3/16/2010 12:22 onlinenursing: @nursechenene excellent point about surg intervention throughout the lifespan. T1- part 1 #RNChat 3/16/2010 12:22 acmessner17: #RNChat I think that the patients wishes needs to be something that is focused on more in h/c and seen as acceptable 3/16/2010 12:23 onlinenursing: @nursechenene T1 -part 2 - another example, orthorscopic knee surg to fix knee pain instead of wt. loss, PT -#1 proc. in us #RNChat 3/16/2010 12:23 grimalkinrn: Exactly!! RT @nursechenene: #RNchat I feel death is my enemy during traumas not when it is part of natures course. #rnchat 3/16/2010 12:23 andyatFAD: T1 @philbaumann That decision is so difficult to make, even for us, I think. Too many "what ifs" #RNChat 3/16/2010 12:24 philbaumann: @EllenRichter I know. It's a very difficult time. Tons of emotions involved. No "right" or "wrong" answer either. #RNchat 3/16/2010 12:24
  • EllenRichter: @acmessner17 T1 Sadly there is no recourse for a family member who decides NOT to follow an unresponsive pt's wishes #RNchat 3/16/2010 12:24 rnchat: Next topic coming up in two minutes. #RNchat 3/16/2010 12:25 nursechenene: @onlinenursing #RNchat Yes and with the same conclusion-get moving 3/16/2010 12:26 rnchat: T2 RN-LPN Relations: How healthy, overall, is the relationship between RNs & LPNs? With other disciplines? #RNchat 3/16/2010 12:27 NursingCenter: T1 Many think of end-of-life care as "pulling the plug". Not the case - it's a process, nurses r integral to helping pts/fam learn #rnchat 3/16/2010 12:27 EllenRichter: @rnchat I think nurses could discuss the frustrations in dealing with health care aspects of death & dying for hours #RNchat 3/16/2010 12:27 ocdgirl2000: #rnchat T1 politics: gov run healthcare is quite different! inefficiency & incompetency runs rampant..can't fire bad management 3/16/2010 12:27 EllenRichter: Great point!

We don't have LPN's in my area. 3/16/2010 12:28 davedawes: #RNchat What's an LPN? 3/16/2010 12:28 nursekama: @rnchat T2 Great question. I think we're struggling a bit in Ontario with our RN-RPN role blurring. We're all under one college... #RNChat 3/16/2010 12:29 grimalkinrn: @davedawes Licensed Practical Nurse #rnchat 3/16/2010 12:29 EllenRichter: T2 I have not worked with an LPN since 1985!! I have worked in "all RN" facilities---so I cant even comment! :( #RNchat 3/16/2010 12:29 grimalkinrn: T2 I love working as a team with LPNs, and with CNAs as well. LPNs can be a vital resource when correctly trained, partnered. #rnchat 3/16/2010 12:30 NursingCenter: T2 - Never worked with LPNs. Worked closely with nursing assistants who were
  • awesome! #rnchat 3/16/2010 12:30 davedawes: Thanks @grimalkinrn but what is the difference between an LPN and an RN? @davedawes Licensed Practical Nurse #rnchat 3/16/2010 12:30 nursekama: T2 Licensed Practical Nurse, LPN = Registered Practical Nurse, RPN (in Ontario, Canada) #RNChat 3/16/2010 12:30 onlinenursing: @davedawes Good question. In the US. it is a liscenced practical nurse - 9-12 month degree - basic nursing foundation #RNchat 3/16/2010 12:30 nursechenene: @NursingCenter Yes Many cultures honor the passing of life into death. Our culture fights the inevitable rather that embrace it #RNchat 3/16/2010 12:30 andyatFAD: T2 Taught LPNs backintheday; RNs loved them but they've moved into mostly chronic care now #RNChat 3/16/2010 12:31 EllenRichter: T2 I only remember, when I used to work with LPNs, they were delegated many RN tasks to free RNs up 4 education & other vital roles #RNchat 3/16/2010 12:31 acmessner17: #RNChat T2 Me personally I have never witnessed any bad relationships btwn RN's & LPN's, I feel that we are all in this field together 3/16/2010 12:31 MeredithGould: @RNchat I "lurk" on #RNchat b/c I <3 & respect nurses for contributing to hc...also I read the entire Cherry Ames series!!! 3/16/2010 12:31 onlinenursing: @davedawes #RNChat - level of education, more technical. 3/16/2010 12:31 ocdgirl2000: #rnchat T2 LPN's can't live without 'em! they run our inpatient clinics!take care of our patients 3/16/2010 12:32 EllenRichter: @MeredithGould LMAO @ Cherry Ames....that blasted open a dustball in my brain! ;) #RNchat 3/16/2010 12:32 andyatFAD: T2 @acmessner I'm glad that's still the case. #RNChat 3/16/2010 12:32 ONSmark: T2 Article "RNs & LPNs: A Powerful Team" at http://bit.ly/ddf4f3 #rnchat 3/16/2010 12:32 onlinenursing: #RNchat - T2 - I thought we were discussing relationships with nurses (both LPN and RN) with other disciplines? I am easily conf. 3/16/2010 12:33 nursekama: T2 At times there are issues between RN-RPN B/C they may be doing what they
  • consider as the "same job" & get paid differently too #RNChat 3/16/2010 12:33 ONSmark: From 2003, though! RT @ONSmark: T2 Article "RNs & LPNs: A Powerful Team" at http://bit.ly/ddf4f3 #rnchat 3/16/2010 12:33 EllenRichter: @ocdgirl2000 T2 Glad to see they are an important part of your team...I really loved working with LPNs #RNchat 3/16/2010 12:33 grimalkinrn: @EllenRichter I collect Cherry Ames books. When I was a little girl, going through burn therapies, I wanted to BE CHERRY AMES, RN #RNchat 3/16/2010 12:33 nursekama: T2 There are differences in the education and therefore, critical thinking and it needs to be acknowledged. Its not about tasks... #RNChat 3/16/2010 12:34 davedawes: #rnchat T2 we have care assistants in the UK who are delegated nursing tasks from RNs. They don't have degrees or diplomas though. 3/16/2010 12:34 ocdgirl2000: #rnchat T2 Contract agency won't pay 4 RN's 2 take care of inpatients in County facility who can't afford 2 pay them!addictions,no insurance 3/16/2010 12:34 EllenRichter: @nursekama T2 If RNs & LPNs are doing same job for diff pay, someone needs to re- look @ those job descriptions! :( #RNchat 3/16/2010 12:34 nursechenene: @acmessner17 #RNchat I agree. I have seen rivalry. Usually a power thing by the one in charge. Like others to know they are the boss 3/16/2010 12:35 nursekama: T2 My fear is we replace nurses (whether RN or RPN) w/ Personal Support Workers (who do not provide the same level of care) b/c of $ #RNChat 3/16/2010 12:35 Nerdnurse: #RNchat T2 We have an entry into practice problem in the US that we desperately need to resolve. Place for all, but should have diff license 3/16/2010 12:36 lorryschoenly: T2 - many LPNs in corrections. Relationship in any place governed by mutual respect,understanding of licensure,delegation,job desc #rnchat 3/16/2010 12:36 acmessner17: RT @ONSmark: From 2003, though!

We've had the problem for decades. Why can't we solve it? #RNChat 3/16/2010 12:37 Nerdnurse: #RNchat T2 @nursekama Yes! And all research shows increased mortality and morbidity when we don't have RNs at bedside. BSN best, in fact. 3/16/2010 12:37 nursekama: @andyatFAD T2 Yes, its a term we use in Ontario at least! Here's example education in our Province: http://tinyurl.com/yjpaku2 #RNChat 3/16/2010 12:38 nursekama: RT @Nerdnurse: #RNchat T2 @nursekama Yes!

I'll check it out. 3/16/2010 12:39 grimalkinrn: @andyatFAD @nerdnurse T2 If RNs want to be treated as part of the team by docs, etc, we need to treat CNAs, LPNs as teammates. #rnchat 3/16/2010 12:39 EllenRichter: @ONSmark T2 Thanks for the article link! :) #RNchat 3/16/2010 12:39 Nerdnurse: @andyatFAD #RNchat T2 We are our own worst enemies with entry into practice discussion. Research should guide the decision, not emotion. 3/16/2010 12:39 rnchat: Our final topic today is batting up in a moment. #RNchat 3/16/2010 12:40 grimalkinrn: T2 I also want to say that LPNs are great as teammates, but it's not fun to be taken away from the bedside for more paperwork. #rnchat 3/16/2010 12:40 davedawes: @nursekama T2 that happens inUK where care assistants are often employed instead of RNs because of £ (like $ but with Queen on them) #RNChat 3/16/2010 12:40 andyatFAD: @nursekama T2 Thanks for the link! We sometimes call them here personal care assistants. #RNChat 3/16/2010 12:40 RNMark: @Nerdnurse RN has more critical thinking skill due to nature of education and deeper
