Hope that's a good sign. #rnchat 2/5/2010 21:11 TeriRN: T1: Still think it isn't getting the attention it needs by all professions involved. Too many don't want to get involved. #RNChat 2/5/2010 21:12 rnchat: @joniwatson All aspects actually - although advocacy key. #RNchat 2/5/2010 21:12 EllenRichter: T1 I am sure ER folks see & screen it much more #RNchat 2/5/2010 21:12 joniwatson: I'm with @EllenRichter...not much experience here. #rnchat 2/5/2010 21:12 EllenRichter: T1 @TeriRN yes, the fear of getting involved has always been a problem with many issues like abuse & addiction #RNchat 2/5/2010 21:13 InfusionNurse: T1 don't deal w/pts but do know of colleagues who are DV victims...unrecognized. #rnchat 2/5/2010 21:13 TeriRN: T1: Dtr was victim of DV. ER nurses did good but the legal system I feel let her down due to not being able to afford a lawyer #RNChat 2/5/2010 21:13
  • holisticnurses: T1 SANE (Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner) Cert. is a positive step, although not sure how many ERs, hospitals, home cares utilize #rnchat 2/5/2010 21:13 lisagualtieri: What are the signs to an RN of domestic violence? #rnchat 2/5/2010 21:13 EllenRichter: T1 @TeriRN that is very sad to hear, about the difficulties your child had with that #RNchat 2/5/2010 21:14 TeriRN: @EllenRichter I've even had managers that "hushed" me when I brought to their attention a potiental abuse issue. #RNChat 2/5/2010 21:14 rnchat: @chuymatt Are they providing any case studies? #RNchat 2/5/2010 21:14 holisticnurses: T1 Perhaps the SANE role can broaden to encompass Domestic Violence too. #rnchat 2/5/2010 21:15 rnchat: @lisagualtieri Aside from any physical signs, guarded behavior. Abusers tend to be controlling (charming often too). #RNchat 2/5/2010 21:16 EllenRichter: T1 @lisagualtieri physical abuse usually occurs over long period of time, so black/blue on the body will be at all stages of healing #RNchat 2/5/2010 21:16 nursingpins: nursingpins The most obvious clue is the reluctance to explain the cause of inj. - the big problem is not being reported #rnchat 2/5/2010 21:16 ocdgirl2000: #rnchat T1 ok trying to join in 2/5/2010 21:16 NursingCenter: T1 Not much experience with it, but some of our key ?'s were: When do you feel safe? When do you not feel safe? #RNchat 2/5/2010 21:16 EllenRichter: T1 @holisticnurses Yes, very good point about SANE role as advocate for early recognition of DV #RNchat 2/5/2010 21:17 TeriRN: @EllenRichter Dtr's husband was ex-cop so he knew how to abuse w/o leaving marks. It was harder to see until almost to late. #RNChat 2/5/2010 21:17 bbesser502: RT @EllenRichter: T1 @lisagualtieri physical abuse usually occurs over long period of time, so black/blue on the body will be at all stages of healing #RNchat 2/5/2010 21:18 rnchat: SANE - Sexual Assault Examiner Programs - http://bit.ly/dACvOa #RNchat cc: @holisticnurses 2/5/2010 21:18 TeriRN: @holisticnurses T1: yep.

  • suspected abuse 2 a hospice patient. #RNChat 2/5/2010 21:18 EllenRichter: T1 Yes @RNchat & @TeriRN Abusers can be very clever to cover up & deceive the general public #RNchat 2/5/2010 21:19 ocdgirl2000: #rnchat T1 physical abuse does go hand in hand with addiction, crime, & drugs/dealing 2/5/2010 21:19 nursingpins: T1 small rural hospital ER- nights just nurses and doctors - the abuse is out there - most I see involves alcohol - not reported #rnchat 2/5/2010 21:19 philbaumann: RT @EllenRichter: T1 @lisagualtieri physical abuse usually occurs over long period of time, so black/blue on the body will be at all stages of healing #RNchat 2/5/2010 21:19 KaitlynAliano: @TeriRN, wow, reprimanded? #RNchat 2/5/2010 21:19 joniwatson: T1: nurses are seen as most trusted professionals; reluctance to speak up to us further emphasizes need 4 "extreme" advocacy #rnchat 2/5/2010 21:20 TeriRN: @EllenRichter T1: I agree that SANE nurses are a good place to start for early recognition. #RNChat 2/5/2010 21:20 NursingCenter: RT @rnchat: SANE - Sexual Assault Examiner Programs - http://bit.ly/dACvOa #RNchat cc: @holisticnurses #RNchat 2/5/2010 21:21 rnchat: RT @ocdgirl2000: #rnchat T1 physical abuse does go hand in hand with addiction, crime, & drugs/dealing #RNchat 2/5/2010 21:21 ocdgirl2000: #rnchat T1 definitely ETOH involvement almost all of the time. 2/5/2010 21:22 TeriRN: @KaitlynAliano Yep. I didn't make snap decesion. The whole team (SW, RN's & MD) discussed the case first. #RNChat 2/5/2010 21:22 holisticnurses: T1 @TeriRN Sometimes we get bogged down in process. You were advocating. #rnchat 2/5/2010 21:22 nursingpins: T1 - some things just need external checks - DV reporting is one of them for most smaller hospitals #rnchat (at this time) 2/5/2010 21:22 holisticnurses: T1 More regular inservices on DV couldn't hurt. Or educating HHA in homes, PCP more...etc. #rnchat 2/5/2010 21:23 EllenRichter: T1 @TeriRN if whole team was in agreement, why were you singled out & repremanded? Plus, isnt it the law to report suspected DV? #RNchat 2/5/2010 21:24

Will be a few bucks #rnchat 2/5/2010 22:25 nursingpins: If you know ACLS well of somebody at the code does (program) you don't have to know much else (medicine) at the time #rnchat 2/5/2010 22:25 InfusionNurse: U guy realize we've been on for almost 1 - 1/2 hrs? Fun!! #rnchat 2/5/2010 22:25 holisticnurses: Bravo Agreed RT @EllenRichter:We need uniform standarized programs to deliver same standard of care no matter where clients may live #rnchat 2/5/2010 22:25 chuymatt: @JoeCascio It is the EMR integration. More real estate is better for more accuracy and less eyestrain. #rnchat 2/5/2010 22:25 KaitlynAliano: @joniwatson, enjoy the rest of your night! #RNchat 2/5/2010 22:25 rnchat: OK, we're gonna wrap up in a few minutes.

Dont tell anyone! :) #RNchat 2/5/2010 22:26
  • KaitlynAliano: @JoeCascio, I don't think the tablet is any different than a phone. It will be once they add multitasking. #RNchat 2/5/2010 22:26 InfusionNurse: @joniwatson ,good night Joni...great chatting with u. Till next chat! #rnchat 2/5/2010 22:26 marypoole: @JoeCascio tablet allows me to write and sign docs. Old nurse not good at texting #RNchat 2/5/2010 22:27 holisticnurses: T4 I'm for a uniform standardized system but true, every dept/hospital requires different tasks. RT @chuymatt: #rnchat 2/5/2010 22:27 InfusionNurse: yes, Ms. Time and a half!! LOL..RT @EllenRichter: @InfusionNurse SSSSSSSShhhhh! Dont tell anyone! :) #rnchat 2/5/2010 22:27 rnchat: @joniwatson Good night! Thanks for being here! #RNchat 2/5/2010 22:27 ocdgirl2000: #rnchat T4 well, we are attached to cameras and a "pump" with tubing that's calibrated to dispense liquid mgs/ml/sec..click!Dr's orders! 2/5/2010 22:28 nursingpins: Ya'll are right -there have been so many new developments and advances - much of it could be standardized #rnchat 2/5/2010 22:28 JoeCascio: @chuymatt Gotcha. So bulkiness not an issue vs. improved usability? #rnchat 2/5/2010 22:28 holisticnurses: Goodnight, everyone! You're all lovely, RN's! #rnchat 2/5/2010 22:28 chuymatt: @holisticnurses T4 Thus the regional aspect; you can't expect a system that works for all. Just has to be all inclusive. #rnchat 2/5/2010 22:28 nursingpins: Thanks Phil #rnchat 2/5/2010 22:28 chuymatt: @JoeCascio The machines will only get lighter. A tired nurse squinting at a tiny phone= mistakes made. #rnchat 2/5/2010 22:29 holisticnurses: Socialized Technology! That would scare some? Ugh. And irk tech companies. RT @nursingpins: much of it could be standardized #rnchat 2/5/2010 22:29 EllenRichter: Wow, after 13 hours in ICU, I dragged my ass home & this chat certainly woke me back up!!

Thx for making me feel welcome. :) Great learning oppor. #RNchat 2/5/2010 22:41 ocdgirl2000: #rnchat DC area is under a major blizzard! emergency!LOL #snomg " #SNOWMAGEDDON 2010" ( http://bit.ly/bxrsgz (expand) (expand) ) 2/5/2010 22:41
