Last night's was amazing - here's the transcript - http://rnchat.org - We'll get started in a moment. 2/19/2010 21:02 EllenRichter: @rnchat Yes, last nite was really enjoyable! I hope that @RWJF got some good data from that chat! :) #RNchat 2/19/2010 21:02 NurseSylvia11: 2/3 year nursing student in a BSN program in Cal, also work in an ICU as a tech.. #rnchat 2/19/2010 21:02 ali_rn: @rnchat nurse for (almost) 6yrs medical floor, hi all! #RNchat 2/19/2010 21:03 EllenRichter: I'm Ellen, a long long long-time critical care RN & legal nurse consultant in South Florida Hi people! This is like deja vu! #RNchat 2/19/2010 21:04 ianmal: nearly done with my BSN degree in portland. #rnchat 2/19/2010 21:05 rnchat: First topic coming up in one minute... #RNchat 2/19/2010 21:05 KaitlynAliano: .5/2 year nursing student in a RN program in New Jersey. :-) #RNchat 2/19/2010 21:05 Kineticycle: #rnchat I'm a nurse manager for a critical care transport program at an academic medical center. >20yrs experience.
  2. 2. 2/19/2010 21:06 rnchat: @ali_rn Welcome! #RNchat 2/19/2010 21:06 EllenRichter: Great to see students come to the chat! Welcome everyone! #RNchat 2/19/2010 21:06 KaitlynAliano: @heychrissmith, awesome. I'm watching Medium and following #RNchat. What movie? 2/19/2010 21:06 NurseSylvia11: @EllenRichter thanks! #rnchat 2/19/2010 21:06 rnchat: T1 Grievances: What are best practices for grievances? When should nurses go public? How should they proceed? Any examples? #RNchat 2/19/2010 21:06 heychrissmith: @KaitlynAliano Cloudy with a chance of meatballs #RNchat 2/19/2010 21:07 EllenRichter: T1 Phil, define grievances? You mean work-related issues? #RNchat 2/19/2010 21:08 EllenRichter: LMAO @Kineticycle 200th?? Do I get a prize (hopefully yes!) :) My pleasure following a fellow nurse! #RNchat 2/19/2010 21:08 KaitlynAliano: RT @rnchat: T1 - What are best practices for grievances? When should nurses go public? How should they proceed? Any examples? #RNchat 2/19/2010 21:09 Kineticycle: #rnchat T1 grievence? Is this union related or just a "concern" in general? Not sure I understand the scope of the Q? 2/19/2010 21:10 EllenRichter: T1 To get any real headway with a grievance, you must follow the correct chain of command. "Going public?" Not sure what that means #RNchat 2/19/2010 21:10 holisticnurses: #RNChat Aw, hi gang! Can't really participate as I'm working tonite (& it's crazy) but will be following along when I can. Cheers! 2/19/2010 21:11 ali_rn: @Kineticycle gives the nurse protection/recourse #rnchat 2/19/2010 21:12 NurseSylvia11: T1 is honesty the best policy? Leave it to the hospital to decide. Clearing your conscience doesn't always benefit the masses #rnchat 2/19/2010 21:12 EllenRichter: T1 Many companies have a grievance committee that includes RNs & administrators who try to resolve a grievance behind closed doors #RNchat 2/19/2010 21:12 EllenRichter: T1 @ali_rn Remember, not every hospital/facility has a union! :) #RNchat 2/19/2010 21:13
  3. 3. yvette2012: @EllenRichter Do nurses in FL have unconditional protection when "speaking out" after following chain of command? In TX it seems no #RNchat 2/19/2010 21:14 EllenRichter: @holisticnurses Hi! Sorry you cant partake! Dont work too hard! :) #RNchat 2/19/2010 21:14 ali_rn: @EllenRichter very true...but i have only worked in one that does!! skews my view i guess! #RNchat 2/19/2010 21:15 EllenRichter: T1 @yvette2012 No one has unconditional protection anywhere! We must always play by the rules if we want protection. #RNchat 2/19/2010 21:15 EllenRichter: T1 @kineticycle Many times the grievance has nothing to do with patient care. But its still an issue needing resolution! #RNchat 2/19/2010 21:16 ali_rn: @EllenRichter good points about protection and grievance/pt care #RNchat 2/19/2010 21:18 Kineticycle: #rnchat T1 if a grievance is to have a + impact, it must have a willing champion to "fix" the wrong. It's all in the approach to build trust 2/19/2010 21:18 EllenRichter: T1 @ali_rn I have worked in both union hospitals & non-union ones. Good/bad for each type. A supportive administration always helps #RNchat 2/19/2010 21:18 yvette2012: As a complete new-comer, message I'm getting is: don't speak out, b/c even when you DO follow the rules, you can get into a mess #RNchat 2/19/2010 21:19 PamelaKline: #RNchat~ Sorry, I'm late but here:) 2/19/2010 21:19 ali_rn: @Kineticycle that isn't exactly how it work where i work- a nurse will recieve pay for ot she should have gotten, stuff like that, #rnchat 2/19/2010 21:21 ali_rn: @Kineticycle have not seen it lead to actual policy change #rnchat 2/19/2010 21:21 EllenRichter: T1 @yvette2012 When a nurse feels there was injustice or wrong-doing, theres no Xcuse for silence. There R tactics for effectiveness #RNchat 2/19/2010 21:21 rnchat: @PamelaKline Welcome! We'll start the second topic in a few moments. #RNchat 2/19/2010 21:21 EllenRichter: @PamelaKline welcome gf!! :) Not too late! #RNchat 2/19/2010 21:21 Kineticycle: #rnchat T1 RNs must speak out, they just can't "whine about everything". Be focused, ID the cause and suggest solutions = best chance. 2/19/2010 21:22
  4. 4. rnchat: Lot of great views here on grievances. Second topic coming up! #RNchat 2/19/2010 21:22 EllenRichter: T1 I'm sure every nurse has stories of incidents where they couldve/shouldve made a grievance, but didnt--to prevent more H/As #RNchat 2/19/2010 21:23 holisticnurses: RT @Kineticycle #rnchat T1 RNs must speak out, just can't "whine about everything". Be focused, ID cause & suggest solutions = best chance 2/19/2010 21:23 rnchat: RT @Kineticycle: #rnchat T1 RNs must speak out, they just can't "whine about everything". Be focused, ID the cause and suggest solutions = best chance. 2/19/2010 21:23 rnchat: T2 Pharmaceutical Industry: Is Pharma sufficiently supportive of nursing? How should they be involved? What can they do for us? #RNchat 2/19/2010 21:24 yvette2012: I'm just *perplexed". What did the TX nurse do wrong? She's paying a hefty price for speaking her mind about what was right. #RNchat 2/19/2010 21:24 EllenRichter: T1 Yessss...@kineticycle GREAT point about having some ideas for a solution! Thats a plus & can really help resolve things. #RNchat 2/19/2010 21:24 KaitlynAliano: RT @rnchat: T2 - Is Pharma sufficiently supportive of nursing? How should they be involved? What can they do for us? #RNchat 2/19/2010 21:24 EllenRichter: @yvette2012 Texas nurse issue compounded by a very small hospital, small town, the MD & the sheriff had a relationship. #RNchat 2/19/2010 21:26 holisticnurses: And many nurses have come together bc of that! RT @yvette2012 I'm just *perplexed". What did the TX nurse do wrong? #RNchat 2/19/2010 21:26 philbaumann: @yvette2012 We all are. It was the most bizarre case ever. Just bizarre. #RNchat 2/19/2010 21:27 PamelaKline: @yvette2012 I agree with you Yvette. She did nothing wrong. #RNchat 2/19/2010 21:27 Kineticycle: #rnchat T2 if Pharma were supportive of nursing they would: use larger print, name meds less alike, make doses easier 2 deliver (no cutting) 2/19/2010 21:28 EllenRichter: T2 One big beef with the whole pharmaceutical industry is the complexity of all the different names for each drug! Makes it so hard! #RNchat 2/19/2010 21:28 holisticnurses: Agreed! RT @philbaumann @yvette2012 We all are. It was the most bizarre case ever. Just bizarre. #RNchat 2/19/2010 21:29
  5. 5. KaitlynAliano: @holisticnurses, yes. One of the best things to come out of the case; a strengthened sense of community & fellowship among nurses. #RNchat 2/19/2010 21:29 EllenRichter: T2 Each drug should just have a generic name!! Not 15 different trade names for each company! #RNchat 2/19/2010 21:29 Kineticycle: RT @yvette2012: I'm just *perplexed". What did the TX nurse do wrong? She's paying a hefty price...about what was right. #RNchat ^POLITICS! 2/19/2010 21:29 rnchat: RT @EllenRichter: T2 One big beef with the whole pharmaceutical industry is the complexity of all the different names for each drug! Makes it so hard! #RNchat 2/19/2010 21:30 EllenRichter: T2 The patients get so confused. They call a med one name, nurse calls it another, MD writes it under a 3rd name! #RNchat 2/19/2010 21:30 rnchat: A great point by @EllenRichter - what can Pharma do with respect to med naming? Any suggestions or is it just hopeless? #RNchat 2/19/2010 21:31 Kineticycle: RT @EllenRichter: T2 The patients get so confused. They call a med one name, nurse calls it another, MD writes it under a 3rd name! #RNchat 2/19/2010 21:31 EllenRichter: T2 Another thing I am puzzled about is the size of some pills...ie coreg, thyroid suppl...they are like saccharine! Old shaky hands? #RNchat 2/19/2010 21:31 holisticnurses: RT @EllenRichter: T2 One big beef with the whole pharm industry is the complexity of all the different names for each drug! #RNchat 2/19/2010 21:32 Kineticycle: RT @rnchat: A great point by @EllenRichter - what can Pharma do with respect to med naming? #RNchat ^its all abt marketing/branding. #fail 2/19/2010 21:33 PamelaKline: RT @EllenRichter: T2 One big beef with the whole pharm industry is the complexity of all the different names for each drug! #RNchat 2/19/2010 21:33 EllenRichter: T3 LOL, and my last big beef with pharma...make more of the common medications in elixer form. Thousands need their pills crushed! #RNchat 2/19/2010 21:34 yvette2012: But then, I don't want their job either #RNchat 2/19/2010 21:34 maryannagordon: Hi, I'm Mary Anna, a nursing instructor/simulation specialist in Portland, OR. Glad to be joining #RNchat for the first time. 2/19/2010 21:34 ali_rn: t2 #rnchat my primary concern is how much drug waste their is..why provide 4 of morphine so i can waste 2? 2/19/2010 21:35
  6. 6. PamelaKline: @maryannagordon welcome!!! #RNchat 2/19/2010 21:35 EllenRichter: T3 I know when I crush up 15 pills for an NG tube, much of those drugs never dissolve well & doses are not 100% instilled #RNchat 2/19/2010 21:35 maryannagordon: I'll agree w/ general confusion with the complexity of the naming system, my students have much difficulty learning all permutations #RNCHAT 2/19/2010 21:36 ali_rn: people cannot afford meds, and i'm throwing away perfectly good ones, every hour! #rnchat 2/19/2010 21:36 Kineticycle: #rnchat T2 simplify med dosing, standardize concentrations, improve labeling so it can be read, sponsor RN education, not just doc vacations 2/19/2010 21:36 EllenRichter: T3 @ali_rn I cant agree more! I hate wasting narcotics just because the pharmacy has only one dose available!! Sometimes every hour~ #RNchat 2/19/2010 21:37 EllenRichter: LOL @ali_rn We both said "every hour"! We know how to waste, dont we? ;) #RNchat 2/19/2010 21:37 CureT1Diabetes: RT @EllenRichter: T2 One big beef with the whole pharmaceutical industry is the complexity of all the different names for each drug! Makes it so hard! #RNchat 2/19/2010 21:38 ali_rn: @EllenRichter i know- how much med sticks to syringe and cup and never even gets into pt! #RNchat 2/19/2010 21:38 CureT1Diabetes: RT @Kineticycle: RT @EllenRichter: T2 The patients get so confused. They call a med one name, nurse calls it another, MD writes it under a 3rd name! #RNchat 2/19/2010 21:39 ELNC: @ali_rn T3 I agree. Pts aren't getting their meds if you are crushing them. #RNCHAT 2/19/2010 21:39 DiabetesMine: RT @Kineticycle: RT @EllenRichter: T2 The patients get so confused. They call a med one name, nurse calls it another, MD writes it under a 3rd name! #RNchat 2/19/2010 21:40 EllenRichter: I wood say 1/4 of NG dose gets lost along way RT @ali_rn: i know~how much med sticks to syringe and cup and never even gets into pt! #RNchat 2/19/2010 21:40 ali_rn: @EllenRichter oh yes #RNchat 2/19/2010 21:40 EllenRichter: Thanks for the RTs folks!! Wow! :) #RNchat 2/19/2010 21:40 rnchat: Follow up to T2 - Given that it's nurses who admin Rx & run clin trials: what should
  7. 7. Pharma do in a broader sense (support, etc.) #RNchat 2/19/2010 21:41 EllenRichter: (good questions, Phil!!) :) #RNchat 2/19/2010 21:41 ELNC: RT @EllenRichter: (good questions, Phil!!) :) #RNchat 2/19/2010 21:42 ali_rn: @rnchat ask nurses what they need to dose patients... med routes, doses needed #RNchat 2/19/2010 21:42 Kineticycle: #rnchat T2 pharma should send RNs to Hawaii for a 2 week ACLS recert ;) 2/19/2010 21:42 PamelaKline: RT @rnchat: Given that it's nurses who admin Rx & run clin trials: what should Pharma do in a broader sense (support, etc.) #RNchat 2/19/2010 21:43 EllenRichter: T2 Maybe Pharma could hire more RN consultants to help in the development phases of pharma instead of bandaid to existing problems #RNchat 2/19/2010 21:43 PamelaKline: @Kineticycle I agree with you, I'm packing my bags:) #RNchat 2/19/2010 21:44 EllenRichter: @mandirocker Great point! I think drug names are VERY important to the understanding of their actions by patients AND hc professnls #RNchat 2/19/2010 21:44 yvette2012: T2 I have a broad question: are pharm companies genuinely interested in promoting safety? Is their any incentive for them? #RNchat 2/19/2010 21:44 EllenRichter: LMAO!!! I just saw that!! haha >> RT @Kineticycle: T2 pharma should send RNs to Hawaii for a 2 week ACLS recert ;) #RNchat 2/19/2010 21:45 philbaumann: @yvette2012 Rationally it's in their interest. But Rationality and Wall Street don't always meet each other on the road. :) #RNchat 2/19/2010 21:46 PamelaKline: @EllenRichter I think that's a great idea Ellen:) #RNchat 2/19/2010 21:46 Cathy_Robinson: RT @EllenRichter: LMAO!!! I just saw that!! haha >> RT @Kineticycle: T2 pharma should send RNs to Hawaii for a 2 week ACLS recert ;) #RNchat 2/19/2010 21:47 Kineticycle: #rnchat this is great fun and good discussion! Thanks for the opportunity. 2/19/2010 21:48 EllenRichter: T2 When nuts come to bolts, both health care and pharma are big business--its not all about altruistic patient care, altho importnt #RNchat 2/19/2010 21:48
  8. 8. rnchat: Third topic coming up in a moment. #RNchat (Gonna have to get Pharma companies to send us to Maui now :) 2/19/2010 21:48 ELNC: @yvette2012 T2 I don't think safety is their primary concern. Safety falls on the nurse. #RNCHAT 2/19/2010 21:48 EllenRichter: Hey, @kineticycle I'm glad you came too! You have added alot to the chat! Keep coming back! :) #RNchat 2/19/2010 21:49 ali_rn: RT @ELNC: @yvette2012 T2 I don't think safety is their primary concern. Safety falls on the nurse. #RNCHAT agreed, its money! 2/19/2010 21:49 rnchat: @Kineticycle Our pleasure! #RNchat 2/19/2010 21:50 Kineticycle: #rnchat T2 instead of pharma supporting nursing, how can nursing influence pharma? What's our sphere of influence on them? Do we use it? 2/19/2010 21:50 rnchat: T3 Women's Health: What Dx and Tx disparities do you still see between men and women? What's improved over the decades? #RNchat 2/19/2010 21:50 grimalkinrn: #rnchat also still at work! 2/19/2010 21:51 rnchat: @Kineticycle That's a great question! We'll make that a topic in itself in a future #RNchat 2/19/2010 21:51 ELNC: @ali_rn T2 It's always about the $$$$ #RNCHAT 2/19/2010 21:51 EllenRichter: YESSSS!! >>> RT @rnchat @Kineticycle That's a great question! We'll make that a topic in itself in a future #RNchat 2/19/2010 21:52 PamelaKline: @Kineticycle I think we can try to be as proactive as possible (give our input, ideas & suggestions) any chance we get:) #RNchat 2/19/2010 21:52 PamelaKline: @ali_rn Oh yeah, I so agree with you. #RNchat 2/19/2010 21:53 Facethesunmovie: RT @rnchat: Third topic coming up in a moment. #RNchat (Gonna have to get Pharma companies to send us to Maui now :) 2/19/2010 21:54 PamelaKline: RT @ali_rn: @RNchat T3 women do not get taken seriously, patted on head said to be anxious #RNchat 2/19/2010 21:55 EllenRichter: T3 I'm not so sure I agree with @ali_rn on the view of a woman's complaints being squelched by a pat on the head! #RNchat 2/19/2010 21:55
  9. 9. Kineticycle: #rnchat T3 I still see the skepticism in females and acute MI's. Why do we do that? Myocytes are dying and we stand looking on in denial. 2/19/2010 21:56 rnchat: Follow up to T1 - are schools & facilities doing enough to promote awareness of women's health w/respect to Sx assessment, etc.? #RNchat 2/19/2010 21:56 CarolBCollett: T3 In peds endocrine, males often get eval for growth failure younger than females. #RNChat 2/19/2010 21:58 yvette2012: Uh...Womens Health Issues is an elective...That's about all I can say...but that's something, right? #RNchat 2/19/2010 21:58 PamelaKline: RT @rnchat: ~Are schools & facilities doing enough to promote awareness of women's health w/respect to Sx assessment, etc.? #RNchat 2/19/2010 21:59 rnchat: That last tweet was for T3 btw #RNchat o_O 2/19/2010 21:59 EllenRichter: T3 @yvette2012 Womens Health classes are only electives in school these days?? #RNchat 2/19/2010 21:59 PamelaKline: @yvette2012~ Wow, that's incredible?! #RNchat 2/19/2010 22:00 Kineticycle: #rnchat T3 I'm not sure anyone is to blame for this syndrome of female sx minimizing, its more of a culture issue. Being aware is a + start. 2/19/2010 22:01 yvette2012: T3 EllenRichter It's an elective starting in semester 2. Yip. #RNchat 2/19/2010 22:01 rnchat: @yvette2012 Wow.

  10. 10. educators who prepare nursing curriculum! #RNchat 2/19/2010 22:03 Kineticycle: RT @rnchat: @yvette2012 Wow. That's a sin. #RNchat ^i agree!! 2/19/2010 22:03 CarolBCollett: RT @EllenRichter: T3 Well I hope these tweets reach the eyes of university administrators & educators who prepare nursing curriculum! #RNchat 2/19/2010 22:03 yvette2012: T3 I'll find out in time, but right now I feel they try so hard to get EVERYTHING into the program, the basics are being neglected #RNchat 2/19/2010 22:04 StephenNP: #RNchat Hi there - T3 - Plus we know that most of the older clinical trials were only conducted on white men - thats not applicable to all! 2/19/2010 22:04 lisagualtieri: Hi #RNchat! Would love RN feedback on Sarasota Memorial's internal and external social media use @SMHCS http://wp.me/pah6H-5W 2/19/2010 22:05 EllenRichter: T3 If Womens Health, as well as Mens Health, are not addressed by regular college courses as mandatory topics, thats just wrong! #RNchat 2/19/2010 22:05 PamelaKline: RT @StephenNP: ~Plus we know that most of the older clinical trials were only conducted on white men - thats not applicable to all! #RNchat 2/19/2010 22:06 Kineticycle: @yvette2012 #rnchat a little of all in education, lack of depth in basics is a #fail of our education. Bad idea! 2/19/2010 22:06 PamelaKline: @EllenRichter agreed! That just seems like a basic requirement. #RNchat 2/19/2010 22:08 rnchat: @yvette2012 But women's health is an important part of the basics. That's it's not considered basic says something. #RNchat 2/19/2010 22:08 Kineticycle: #rnchat T3 Teach the norms, teach how to assess, teach how to communicate in common language. The rest can come w/ experience & more ed. 2/19/2010 22:09 ali_rn: RT @StephenNP: #RNchat Hi there - T3 - Plus we know that most of the older clinical trials were only conducted on white men - thank you!! 2/19/2010 22:09 EllenRichter: T3 When I went to school, that mustve been before women were invented, because we didnt even have Womens Health as an elective! :( #RNchat 2/19/2010 22:10 rnchat: @lisagualtieri Sure - but maybe not during the #RNchat - it's one hour where we like to focus things a bit. OK? 2/19/2010 22:10
  11. 11. yvette2012: T3 I just check my course outline to be sure. We have Maternal/Newborn NUR in the 4th semester. The only 1 relating directly 2 women #RNchat 2/19/2010 22:10 KaitlynAliano: @yvette2012, same with my program, Yvette! #RNchat 2/19/2010 22:11 EllenRichter: T3 Very sad to hear this from current students. Here I thought nursing schools were so "cutting edge" in 2010~ Very saddened. #RNchat 2/19/2010 22:12 PamelaKline: @EllenRichter~ T3- LOL!! #RNchat 2/19/2010 22:13 EllenRichter: @PamelaKline LOL here too ;) #RNchat 2/19/2010 22:14 rnchat: @EllenRichter Same here - it's pretty mind-blowing. We're talking half of the population. Kinda sorta big, ya know?? #RNchat 2/19/2010 22:14 yvette2012: T3 I know we're slightly off topic, but I don't think NUR can only be 2yr program anymore. There are so many HAVE TO KNOW issues #RNchat 2/19/2010 22:14 KaitlynAliano: @EllenRichter, I'm assuming they cluster Women's Health in with Maternal/Newborn NUR, but the info really deserves its own course. #RNchat 2/19/2010 22:15 rnchat: OK - we're gonna wrap up in a moment. Lots of great stuff here tonight!!! #RNchat 2/19/2010 22:15 yvette2012: T3 And mine is supposed to be a well supported (by local hospitals) program right here in Orlando #RNchat 2/19/2010 22:15 EllenRichter: @yvette2012 I agree 100% on the RN minimum education. I am a full supporter of at LEAST a BSN for all RNs. & thats just entry level #RNchat 2/19/2010 22:15 PamelaKline: @rnchat loved it tonight Phil. Very educational and eye opening! Thanks:) #RNchat 2/19/2010 22:16 rnchat: I think we're gonna have to revisit women's health again soon on #RNchat Huge room for improvement here I do believe. 2/19/2010 22:16 rnchat: @PamelaKline Sure! Keep coming back! #RNchat 2/19/2010 22:16 KaitlynAliano: @yvette2012, I'm in a 2 yr program at the mo, but plan to go on to get my BSN. I do think it's important. #RNchat 2/19/2010 22:17 holisticnurses: RT @EllenRichter I agree 100% on the RN minimum education. I am a full supporter of at LEAST a BSN for all RNs. 4 just entry level #RNchat 2/19/2010 22:17
