  • 2. #RNChat Denver Med Surg Nurse, I'm also @grimalkinrn, but this is WillowRN my more serious account. ehanesrn @WillowRN Love Denver. Formerly of Colo Spgs. :-) #rnchat Emily, 2nd degree nursing student at the end of my 7th week. Listening HopHopHoppe in for the first time to #RNchat. #RNchat Dora Meulman critical care nurse. I'm happy to be able to dorameulman join in tonight :) Hi there! Amy in New York, Holistic & Telehealth RN (in homecare). Are you any where near West Palm Beach, Ellen? Just holisticnurses there... #rnchat Wow, too many of you to tweet hello individually! But I am saying hello rnchat to all of you! :) #RNchat pamsvulcan Hi! Pam, med-surg RN from NY here #RNChat @holisticnurses I'm south of West Palm, north of Fort Lauderdale.... rnchat not too far from where u were....like 45 min #RNchat holisticnurses @WillowRN Love the avatar too! #rnchat rnchat Wonderful mix of #nurses tonight! #RNchat The topics will be labeled T1 & T2~Please remember to add topic label & hashtag #RNchat to ea tweet so we can track rnchat your responses! holisticnurses @rnchat Ahhhh! Nice. Missing the palm trees. #rnchat OK lets start folks! I need to stop typing & drink some coffee rnchat :) #RNchat holisticnurses #rnchat JeseLynn New grad, currently working on surgery. #RNchat T1 If U had the OK to freely use Twitter in any aspect of patient care delivery, how would U use it? To reach pts? Family? MDs? RNs? rnchat #RNchat ehanesrn @JeseLynn Awesome! That's the track I took, too. #rnchat all my fellow nurses out there. There is an #RNchat currently in progress. A great venue for networking, sharing ideas, meeting more bthenextstep nurses!
  • 3. rnchat (can 1 or 2 of you RT topic 1 so everyone sees it?) :) #RNchat ehanesrn T1: all of the above. Assuming HIPAA compliance, natch. #rnchat RT @rnchat: T1 If U had the OK to freely use Twitter in any aspect of patient care delivery, how would U use it? To reach pts? Family? MDs? WillowRN RNs? #RNchat RT @rnchat: T1 If U had the OK to freely use Twitter in any aspect of ehanesrn patient care delivery, how would U use it? #rnchat @bthenextstep Awww thats so sweet of you! Thanks for that tweet rnchat about the chat, Sean! :) #RNchat T1 - if the OR could use it to give us a heads up where my pre-ops are in pamsvulcan the cue to head out to surgery -might save a call or 3 #RNChat #RNChat #t1 I would not really want to use Twitter itself for patient WillowRN care delivery, but an internal social media system could be helpful. rnchat @ehanesrn T1 Can you give an example? #RNchat @rnchat poking my head in to say Hi! Sorry can't stay tonight. Have a bthenextstep great weekend everyone! Keep up the grt work @EllenRichter #RNchat @RNchat all sorts of new nurses following me this week. trying to pass bthenextstep on the word! #RNchat T1 - same with other areas that typically have a long wait - like MRI of pamsvulcan CT - especially since I expect it could be built in... #RNChat @rnchat T1: Triage via Twitter. Explain treatment modalities. Obtain ehanesrn MD input. #rnchat @pamsvulcan T1 Yes, good idea! A surgical center tweeted to me when my dad's shoulder surgery was nearly done so we could head back rnchat #RNchat @pamsvulcan #t1 #RNChat Exactly. Continued updates on patient grimalkinrn statuses could help facilitate pt flow through their stay. pamsvulcan T1... to the scheduling system which I think is computerized #RNChat T1 - my first thought was patients being able to tweet what they need in Emergiblog the hospital! Save a call bell, tweet what you need LOL #rnchat @RNchat wow I don't see how that would work. With confidentiality, I JeseLynn have no problems contacting pts doctors or family. #RNchat
  • 4. T1 Again, keeping in mind HIPAA, would be a great tool to coordinate holisticnurses care for pts and families. #rnchat T1 as @WillowRN says - would use mostly for "social media system" now - but who know what the future potential will nursingpins be? #RNchat ehanesrn @JeseLynn @RNChat: Yes, HIPAA is a barrier. #rnchat RT @bthenextstep: all my fellow nurses out there. There is an #RNchat currently in progress. A great venue for networking, sharing ideas, Emergiblog meeting more nurses! @Emergiblog Oh that would be useful - but not all our elderly are quite pamsvulcan that computer saavy T1 #RNChat holisticnurses @Emergiblog That's an interesting idea! Efficient use. T1 #rnchat #RNchat T1: I tweet at work sometimes on my phone, follow chat etc. dorameulman during down time. Most days lately I'm too busy! @Emergiblog T1 #rnchat I'm not so sure a lot of my patients could WillowRN successfully tweet or type while on their narcotic PCAs. @RNChat: I could see using DM to obtain pt hx, communicate c pt ehanesrn families regarding status. No HIPAA issues there. #rnchat RT @rnchat: T1 If U had the OK to freely use Twitter in any aspect of patient care delivery, how would U use it? To reach pts? Family? MDs? dorameulman RNs? #RNchat RT @rnchat: T1 If U had the OK to freely use Twitter in any aspect of patient care delivery, how would U use it? To reach pts? Family? MDs? JeseLynn RNs? #RNchat ehanesrn @WillowRN @Emergiblog: T1: LOL #rnchat T1 We use email and IM to communicate as telehealth nurses...Twitter holisticnurses would be similar. T1 #rnchat @dorameulman T1 I meant using Twitter for professional nursing care delivery to effectively & quickly communicate with others rnchat #RNchat T1 Twitter and other sm are just tools to do what we already do-just nursingpins have more ways to do it with sm - only limited by imigination. #RNchat
  • 5. RT @nursingpins: T1 Twitter and other sm are just tools to do what we already do-just have more ways to do it with sm - only limited by mcgaula imigination. #RNchat @rnchat T1 #RNchat I envision a medical tablet that is small, can be carried on a nurse's person,& can be used to chart, scan grimalkinrn meds, track pt T1: For communicating c members of care team, not sure texting isn't ehanesrn equally as efficient as Twitter, and more secure. #rnchat @WillowRN some of my patients - including one recently are so addicted to their crackberries they'd fight a well meaning spouse... pamsvulcan #RNChat T1 I know of diabetic educators who are using Twitter to help regulate rnchat insulin on new diabetics who tweet their finger stick glucose #RNchat Just thinking: what if the patient had a tablet with pictured buttons, Emergiblog they press and auto tweet goes to RN cell phone with need #rnchat nursingpins @grimalkinrn I see that too. #RNchat @rnchat #RNchat An internal social media system could auto tweet WillowRN VS, heart monitor, pt flow info, to the RN, Doc, also pt family. ...before letting go of their smartphone and leaving off the texting post- pamsvulcan op #RNChat T1 Would love to tweet ETA of nurse visits to homecare pts if they had holisticnurses a company supplied mobile device. #rnchat RT @rnchat:I know of diabetic educators using Twitter to help regulate ehanesrn insulin on new diabetics who tweet their finger stick glucose #rnchat @ehanesrn T1 Texting is great but you need a cell & rnchat reception. With Twitter you can also communicate via web. #RNchat @Emergiblog T1 that would be great - like a picture menu - could pamsvulcan overcome some language barriers #RNChat @Emergiblog Careful there, you're tweeting out multi-million $ ideas pcam #rnchat #Rnchat T1 I can also see where social media can be overused & WillowRN amp; interfere w/personal communication/presence in the hospital.
  • 6. @rnchat T1 True. Who doesn't have a cell and reception? LOL JK ehanesrn #rnchat WillowRN @PamsVulcan We mus have similar patients. #RNChat T1 ***I just want to say, all of your suggestions on Twitter use in rnchat nursing care delivery are terrific!!*** Great ideas folks! #RNchat #RNchat T1 I don't see it happening any time soon. Not enough of my dorameulman peers on Twitter! T1 As Phil has envisioned - machines will be tweeting too - so many nursingpins possibilities - new uses are found every day - an exciting time. #RNchat RT @Emergiblog: thinking: what if pt had a tablet with pictured buttons, they press and auto tweet goes to RN cell phone with need ehanesrn #rnchat @ehanesrn yes, simplified devices for patients to use would be ideal! T1 holisticnurses #rnchat RT @dorameulman: #RNchat T1 I dont see it happening any time soon. Not enough of my peers on Twitter! << YES! ehanesrn #rnchat @dorameulman Good reason to increase informatics focus in the nursingpins nursing schools. (Will catch on faster than many think. #RNchat T1 Well, remember, if we all keep this up, one day soon, Twitter may rnchat reach a hospital near you! :) #RNchat @ehanesrn there are restaurants already using iPads for their menu pamsvulcan systems - the only issue would be finding $ for the tech #RNChat #RNchat T1: I love Twitter but honestly I think you all are on a dorameulman different planter to me. Don't see it any time soon :( T1 Its almost like how cellphones were 20 yrs ago. Soon social media rnchat communication will be prime turf for sending/receiving info #RNchat It is so hard to realize that not everyone is active on social Emergiblog media/networking sites - I am up to my hairline in it! : D #rnchat T1 hospital here using twitter to notify nurses of schedule changes and nursingpins needs. #RNchat @nursingpins T1 I think nursing informatics focuses more on ehanesrn traditional IT than social media. More balance would be good. #rnchat
  • 7. OK, 2 more minutes & I will tweet the next topic. I thoroughly enjoyed everyones Twitter ideas! Cant wait to read them rnchat again later! #RNchat ehanesrn @nursingpins T1 Wow, that's progressive! Kudos. #rnchat ehanesrn @pamsvulcan $$ always the issue, no matter the question! :-) #rnchat T1 some of my co-workers are so active on social media it's quicker to pamsvulcan send them a direct message - than call their homes #RNChat RT @Emergiblog: It is so hard to realize that not everyone is active on ehanesrn social media sites - I am up to my hairline in it! #rnchat @ehanesrn Informatics - adding sm - one of @onlinenursing requirements is to attend an online nursing chat. (It is coming nursingpins #RNchat T1 Currently, at my facility, we are not allowed to access sites like rnchat Twitter from hospital computers. Those sites are blocked. #RNchat RT @nursingpins: Informatics - adding sm - one of @onlinenursing requirements is to attend an online nursing chat. << ehanesrn Good! #rnchat @ehanesrn ahh but with the right spin - patient satisfaction/safety, etc pamsvulcan someone may pay for at least one unit to try it out #RNChat @pamsvulcan In the midst of hard fight c administration to allow soc ehanesrn media at all in our private med grp. Very tough battle. #rnchat OK moving on to T2....... and, again, please will a few of you RT the rnchat tweet so everyone sees it? #RNchat RT @rnchat: T1 At my facility, we are not allowed to access sites like Twitter from hosp computers. Those sites blocked. < ditto. ehanesrn #rnchat T2 You've all been recipients of varied #RNchat topics over the past rnchat year. Now its YOUR turn to suggest good topics for future chats! Ideas?

  • 8. @rnchat T2 #RNchat I'd really be more interested in discussions of grimalkinrn ethics, education, and RN growth. T2 I will write each one down & save them! If we use your rnchat topic, you win a month off in Maui! :) #RNchat @ehanesrn I thing the restricts will continue to ease up-due to many reasons - but especially due to work at the Mayo Clinic for sm. nursingpins #RNchat RT @rnchat: T2 You've all been recipients of varied #RNchat topics ehanesrn over past year. Now its YOUR turn to suggest topics! Ideas? #rnchat RT @rnchat: T2 You've been recipients of varied #RNchat topics... Now its YOUR turn to suggest good topics for future chats!

Each org seems so separate in their aim. holisticnurses #rnchat T2: How about the recent IOM report? BSN as entry level for RNs? ehanesrn Merits of DNP? #rnchat @Emergiblog T2 #rnchat A chat on dealing with aspects of lateral WillowRN violence would be great. What responsibility do nurses have to drug seeking patients in all Emergiblog areas? Are we contributing to addictions? #rnchat Most excellent! RT @ehanesrn: T2: How about the recent IOM report? Emergiblog BSN as entry level for RNs? Merits of DNP? #rnchat T2 Hospital/Nurse relations (at an all time low) is a can of worms we nursingpins can poke it - will continue to be a growing problem. #RNchat T2 how different areas, units, hospitals are educating, precepting, mentoring new RNs, filling in the gaps from school to real world pamsvulcan #RNChat Hello. It has been a while. T2: Union/Non-Union nursing discussion in seejanenurse the future maybe. #RNchat

Nurse unions not an issue in my area. ehanesrn Curious. #rnchat T2 What do you think about having an invited guest to a chat?

(Invited gueats #RNchat ehanesrn @rnchat T2 I like the idea of invited guests. #rnchat @rnchat T2 invited guest for Q&A would be a great idea - pamsvulcan just need some heads up about the person's area of expertise #RNChat T2 LOL maybe the President would like to come and do a Twitter chat rnchat with some of America's nurses? He tweets, no? :) #RNchat @rnchat LOL. Isn't there a RN equivalent to the Surgeon General?? T2 ehanesrn #rnchat WillowRN @RNchat I believe an intern at OFA tweets. #RNchat I'm all for it. RT @rnchat: T2 What do you think about having an holisticnurses invited guest . #rnchat Yes! A Chief nursing officer RT @ehanesrn: @rnchat LOL. Isnt there a Emergiblog RN equivalent to the Surgeon General?? T2 #rnchat So grt! RT @RNchat I know of diabetic educators using Twitter to help JaeSelle regulate insulin on diabetics who tweet their glucose # #RNchat T2 We could ask Teri Mills to talk about the National Nurse position Emergiblog #rnchat T2 OK, maybe we can have a few experts in different areas ie. nursing rnchat education, ethics, unions, etc. That may be an idea to stir! #RNchat
