rnchat: OK, we'll get started in a moment. Remember to prepend your replies to topics with T1,
T2, etc. We recommend http://TweetChat.com #RNchat
davedawes: @RNchat Very cool! I take it from the time that this is for American RNs rather than
insomniac British RNs :) #RNChat
chuymatt: @davedawes we appreciate british insomniacs here! #rnchat
ocdgirl2000: #rnchat T1 getting my T warmed up with copy cut an paste
JennaMahanayRN: Do we have any topics yet? #rnchat
onlinenursing: Hey #RNChat tweeps - Terri - MO - FNP, Educator, PhD student, lover of RNChat!
JennaMahanayRN: Endo/GI nurse, Oregon #RNChat
rnchat: T1 Nursing Informatics: What would you include in a Nrsg Informatics undergrad
program? What are critical foundations? #RNchat
EllenRichter: Wow, nice turnout! Hello folks! I am from S. Florida, a critical care RN & legal nurse
consultant happy to be here tonite :) #RNchat
ocdgirl2000: #rnchat T1 drum roll.....
onlinenursing: T1- Basics of EHR: Security, privacy, clinical decision mking systs, tech support, cost....
but what else? #RNChat
holisticnurses: Amy, Telehealth/Holistic Nurse...NYC. Hi all! #rnchat
EllenRichter: T1 I know nothing about nursing informatics & would love to learn from the responses of
chuymatt: T1= Security should be huge; computer literacy is still an issue with many of the nurses I
am enrolled with and work with. #rnchat
onlinenursing: Hey nursing students? What do you wish your undergrad nsg informatics instructor would
have taught you about technology #RNChat
rnchat: @holisticnurses Welcome! #RNchat
ocdgirl2000: #rnchat T1 we title each of our 3 topics as we discuss them with a T1 and a #RNchat that
way we can stick together! then we move on to T2
asthehospturRNs: Telemetry nurse here. #rnchat
rnchat: @JennaMahanayRN Glad you could make it. #RNchat
JennaMahanayRN: Wow! I'm clueless about Nursing informatics, can't wait to learn more tho #RNChat
davedawes: @chuymatt I feel welcome already and I recognise a few familiar faces namely
@onlinenursing (Terri) and @EllenRichter #RNChat
onlinenursing: @EllenRichter what do you wish you could learn to help you communicate? Blogging,
onlinenursing: @EllenRichter what do you wish you could learn to help you communicate? Blogging,
twitter, evaluating webpages for validity? #RNChat
philbaumann: And I'm the guy who's moderating #RNchat tonight. :)
nursingpins: T1 system evaluations - so broad -will ultimately be used to diag. and treat patients
onlinenursing: @holisticnurses Should undergrad RN's learn about telehealth? #RNChat (that's
JennaMahanayRN: @EllenRichter evaluating webpages for validity is huge, especially since there is so much
"junk" out there. #RNChat
davedawes: T1 - we don't really teach nursing informatics in the UK at pre-registration level but there
is a growing interest in it post-reg #RNChat
grimalkinrn: #RNchat T1 As a nurse with a tech background, I feel that what is missing is the ability to
teach informatics. So many mindnumbing classes.
ocdgirl2000: #rnchat T1 desire to learn software applications is the biggest hurdle!
chuymatt: @onlinenursing I think that is going to be the best way to deal with our ballooning
healthcare costs. #rnchat
rnchat: @scanman Not at all. Good to see you, Vijay! #RNchat
holisticnurses: T1 #rnchat telecommunication, legalities, programming, hippa, practical uses of nursing
EllenRichter: T1 @onlinenursing So thats informatics? Sure a nurse MUST learn about all that in this
day & age~ #RNchat
lisagualtieri: T1 I teach Online Consumer Health and Web Strategies for Health Communication
@TuftsUniversity - are these useful for undergrad RNs? #rnchat
grimalkinrn: #RNchat T1 have also seen instructors be very patronizing to experienced RNs who just
don't use computers often. Senior RNs deserve respect.
holisticnurses: Yes, basics at least. RT @onlinenursing @holisticnurses Should undergrad RN's learn
about telehealth? #RNChat (that's informatics)
davedawes: T1 I suppose information retreival is a pretty key skill but some of the other aspects of
nursing informatics seem optional #RNChat
EllenRichter: T1 Nursing is so much more than "Principles & Practices of Nursing Care", its so
important to integrate all new technology into educ #RNchat
nursingpins: T1 hospitals are going to have to get involved teaching informatics - such a big divide
JennaMahanayRN: @EllenRichter I agree! #RNChat
chuymatt: @grimalkinrn btw, love your name. There needs to be consistent continuing education for
technological issues. ... #rnchat
holisticnurses: Yes! RT @EllenRichter T1 Nursing is so much more than "Principles & Practices of
Nursing Care" #RNchat
lisagualtieri: @chuymatt - current students are graduate students. Had 1 RN, @pamressler, would love
more! Also had docs. #rnchat
rnchat: RT @grimalkinrn: #RNchat T1 have also seen instructors be very patronizing to
experienced RNs who just don't use computers often. Senior RNs deserve respect.
onlinenursing: @holisticnurses Cool! So if you could pick like 5 telehealth issues/gems, what would they

Care", its so important to integrate all new technology into educ #RNchat
grimalkinrn: RT @chuymatt: There needs to be consistent continuing education for technological
issues. ... #rnchat T1 True, you can't just teach once.
EllenRichter: T1 I've been out of academia for a long time. I'm kind of shocked that nsg school
curriculum isnt FULL of informatics & technology #RNchat
holisticnurses: #rnchat and how to read and navigate computer medical records is important. Lots of
programs out there
ocdgirl2000: #rnchat T1 not cost efficient to invest time putting an RN in front of a computer screen
when she can B running around processing PTs in/out
chuymatt: T1 maybe a basics class should be taught and a major focus should be made on the
particulars for the facility in orientation. #rnchat
onlinenursing: Can U tell that I am revamping the nursing informatics course I teach? 6 week - 3 hour
course #RNChat want it 2B fun not boring/overwhelming
EllenRichter: T1 Gee @onlinenursing Maybe we should all take your course! :) #RNchat
chuymatt: @ocdgirl2000 This is a subject of my research tome: designing EMRs to fit the workflow
EXACTLY leads to reduced med error. #rnchat
davedawes: T1 - I think one of the big challenges and opportunities is that patients can now access so
much quality health info themselves #RNChat
onlinenursing: @rnchat Great point! I hate patronizing. We are all learning here everyday. If it was FUN
it would be way more interesting. #RNChat
grimalkinrn: #rnchat T1 Hospitals also need to invest in the right equipment in order to make
informatics easier to swallow. Our workstations are giant!
InfusionNurse: agree RT @chuymatt: T1 maybe a basics class be taught & major focus be made on
facility in orientation. #rnchat
holisticnurses: @grimalkinrn #rnchat And mote nurses designing programs. IT guys don'take it easy!
JennaMahanayRN: @onlinenursing Are RN informatics courses included in RN schools now? I graduated in
2008, we didn't have it, would love it! #RNChat
rnchat: We're gonna move to our next topic in a moment. #RNchat Feel free to add thoughts on
T1 if you'd like, just add T1 to avoid mayhem. :)
JennaMahanayRN: I agree! RT @EllenRichter: T1 Gee @onlinenursing Maybe we should all take your
course! :) #RNchat
RoRod101: Hello Nurses! :) #RNchat
EllenRichter: T1 @ocdgirl2000 I feel we are totally pushed to work with computers in our work areas. I
dont really agree with U #RNchat
chuymatt: @JennaMahanayRN Tacoma, WA= no nursing informatics here. #rnchat
rnchat: @JennaMahanayRN It was included in mine - but it was very numb and basically
useless. Coulda been much better. #RNchat
JennaMahanayRN: Sorry, forgot to add T1 to my posts! #RNChat
ocdgirl2000: #rnchat T1 employers prefer RN's who pay for their own courses & ed on their own
lisagualtieri: RT @ocdgirl2000 #rnchat T1 not cost efficient to invest time to putt RN in front of
computer when can B running around processing PTs in/out
grimalkinrn: T1 #rnchat I feel bulky, cheap equipment slows us down more than it should. Hard to
chart in the room when the computer loses connection.
EllenRichter: LOL @jennamahanayrn I wont say when I graduated! They didnt even have
correctotype!! LMAO #RNchat
lisagualtieri: T1: Should RN informatics courses include use of social media? #rnchat
rnchat: T2 Green Nursing: What efforts to "green" nursing have you seen. What are biggest
EllenRichter: T1 LOL Gee, 10 minutes ago I thought I didn't know what informatics were, now I realize I
can teach them! :) #RNchat
can teach them! :) #RNchat
chuymatt: @EllenRichter THOSE were the DAYS! The days of the mimeograph! ;) The fact you use
twitter speaks well of you. #rnchat
grimalkinrn: T2 #RNchat Our hospital implemented recycling programs for packaging and batteries, as
well as safer EPA mandated drug disposal systems.
EllenRichter: LMAO @chuymatt "mimeograph" brings back such memories! Like Xerox! :) #RNchat
nursingpins: RT @EllenRichter: T1 LOL Gee, 10 minutes ago ........smiling #rnchat
davedawes: T2 - I have seen social & environmental audits in some health providers although mainly
social enterprise ones #RNChat
philbaumann: @lisagualtieri I think they should be - the newer generation may not need technical
education - but implications of tech explored #RNchat
EllenRichter: T2 I think THE biggest thing we all see from day 2 day is recycling of non-medical record
paper documents with patient info #RNchat
onlinenursing: @grimalkinrn great points. Recycling has been a big one (i.e. glass) and being 'paperless'
although I see lots of paper still #RNChat
grimalkinrn: @philbaumann T1 #RNchat Newer generation must be more conscious of online privacy.
Don't think it is taken seriously by many.
holisticnurses: LOL! I'm still getting the hang of this too! RT @JennaMahanayRN Sorry, forgot to add T1
to my posts! #RNChat
EllenRichter: LOL @nursingpins It scares me how you're always smiling... LMAO ;) #RNchat
onlinenursing: RT @philbaumann: I think they should B -newer generation may not need tech ed,but
implications of tech explored #RNchat (Re:informatics)
ocdgirl2000: #rnchat T2 we JUST started getting conscious of how much paper we use tOO much of
where we work!
davedawes: This has been great and I wish I could stay but its 2-30am in the morning here so I have
to go to sleep #RNChat
JennaMahanayRN: We are recycling all paper, cardboard /plastic & aluminum at my workplace, but we're
Oregonians, ha ha! #RNChat
EllenRichter: T1 @chuymatt Yes, you hit the nail on the head. Many have no idea how lax we have
been with electronic info. We have lots to learn #RNchat
grimalkinrn: @davedawes #rnchat Thanks for stopping by!!
EllenRichter: @davedawes Bless you for staying THIS long!! Come again! :) #RNchat
ocdgirl2000: #rnchat T2 mostly, Nursing has no clue about "greening" in their care..how about wound
EllenRichter: T2 We recycle batteries too. Not only paper. But we were just talking about setting up a
plastics recycle bin. We need more of that #RNchat
ocdgirl2000: #rnchat T2 less harmful to the environment? the obvious, of course...
nursingpins: T2 such a big difference in hospital policy - some only have (Linen) & ( Trash) others
have glass, plastic etc - #rnchat
JennaMahanayRN: @davedawes, thanks for joining! #RNChat
rnchat: T2 As a follow-up (h/t @ocdgirl2000 ) - How aware of "greening" are facilities? #RNchat
JennaMahanayRN: @ocdgirl2000 T2, good point! We waste so much!!! #RNChat
NUR3563: RT @ocdgirl2000: #rnchat T2 mostly, Nursing has no clue about "greening" in their
care..how about wound care supplies? (Great point!)
onlinenursing: RT @ocdgirl2000: #rnchat T2 mostly, Nursing has no clue about "greening" in their

Nursing "greening" how abt wound care supplies? #rnchat
JennaMahanayRN: T2 What happens to all those sharps containers?? #RNChat

us... Kidding). Thanks guys! Love #RNChat
EllenRichter: T2 We really DO waste so much in health care, don't we? Whats with that? :( #RNchat
holisticnurses: Agreed! Feel like they use "green" but don't follow "green" RT @rnchat T2 ) - How aware
of "greening" are facilities? #RNchat
EllenRichter: @onlinenursing Good mommy! Thanks for the informatics crash course! :) #RNchat
nursingpins: T2 the closer you are to the teaching hosps - the more aware they are - dept. heads in
smaller hosps should rotate to larger hosps #rnchat
EllenRichter: RT @chuymatt: T2- how much of the greening is actually "greenwashing?" (Gee,
hopefully not much!!) #RNchat
ocdgirl2000: #rnchat T2 notice how we don't even think about it or give it a second thought??We don't
question where it goes next?or if it hurts animals?
grimalkinrn: @ocdgirl2000 Cavicide, etc are toxic to the skin when wet, safe when dry. This is why
they should never be left in the room. T2 #rnchat
EllenRichter: T2 @nursingpins What a good idea! Actually every person in a small hospital should have
to rotate to a teaching facility! #RNchat
holisticnurses: Great point! Natural cleaning supplies likely cost more.RT @ocdgirl2000 #rnchat T2 what
are they using in the patients rooms to clean?
nursingpins: T2 -right now it is priorities - greening is not a priority in most hospitals. #rnchat
ocdgirl2000: #rnchat T2 we know the germs are dead,the dressing is changed sterile,& that is the end
of our responsibility. correct?
InfusionNurse: T2..greening may include proper disposal of medications...not many do it right.. #rnchat
EllenRichter: T2 @nursingpins If hospitals got fined for what they threw out in recycle items, maybe
the table would turn faster #RNchat
holisticnurses: #rnchat Isn't our water full of med byproducts? Big issue for our future. T2
rnchat: Nice convo! Our third topic's coming up. #RNchat
holisticnurses: Yes, my point exactly! RT @InfusionNurse T2..greening may include proper disposal of
medications...not many do it right.. #rnchat
grimalkinrn: @ocdgirl2000 #rnchat T2 No, it is our responsibility to make sure biohazards properly
disposed of. Germs from old dressings are not dead.
EllenRichter: T2 @ocdgirl2000 Interesting point! The chemicals & detergents could be toxic over time.
Thats scary. #RNchat
ocdgirl2000: #rnchat T2 whose responsibility is it? I guess we should wait till the hospital gets sued?
nursingpins: T2 good idea Ellen- hospitals (for the most part) will not do anything without enforcment
rnchat: T3 Unrestricted Visiting Hours: What are your thoughts? What might justify restrictions?
InfusionNurse: T2 greening shouldn't = skimping supplies... #rnchat
grimalkinrn: @holisticnurses #RNchat T2 We recently were all retrained on med disposal and new
signage placed. Far fewer meds in the water at work, now.
signage placed. Far fewer meds in the water at work, now.
ocdgirl2000: @InfusionNurse #rnchat T2 incinerate is the only way, according to dispensing
EllenRichter: @infusionnurse T3 Family members = any type of significant other #RNchat
holisticnurses: When I worked in ICU, loved visiting hours. Pts did better with family around. Explains the
jump to Hospice. ;)RT @rnchat T3 #RNchat
chuymatt: @ellenRichter -here, here! #rnchat
EllenRichter: LOL @nursingpins T3 I absolutely disagree. I think correctly trained & cooperative family
members totally rock in ICUs. We need them #RNchat
grimalkinrn: @EllenRichter #rnchat T3 It is not up to us to judge who the pt deems as family. But if
visitors cause a disruption, they should leave.
cindythroop: (Oops, eavesdropping... ) Interesting idea I heard yesterday: include patient's family in
grand rounds. #RNchat
nursingpins: T3 In critical areas - the emotional roller coaster is to much for many families - esp if
many different ones are in and out. #rnchat
ocdgirl2000: #rnchat T3 tell ya the truth., pt's don't stay long enough to have to have unrestricted
visitors? unless end of life issue?
EllenRichter: T3 Now, talking about litigation & falls, there wouldn't be any if the families were there at
the time to see how easily it happens! #RNchat
grimalkinrn: RT @EllenRichter: T3 Now, talking about litigation & falls, there wouldn't be any if the
families were there at the time to see how easily it happens! #RNchat
nursingpins: T3 I agree Ellen - family members staying in critical areas should have an orientation first.
EllenRichter: T3 @cindythroop YES! The doctors wouldnt have families badgering their offices all day
for info if they were at grand rounds! #RNchat
chuymatt: T3- having an orientation for family members (how to get RRTs, what are bad s/Sx, etc)
they could assist us greatly. #rnchat
holisticnurses: Yep, more education the better! RT @nursingpins T3 - family members staying in critical
areas should have an orientation first. #rnchat
lisagualtieri: @rnchat: Great questions - also separate the wheat from the chaff (RNs from lurkers like
EllenRichter: T3 @nursingpins Yes, not nec orientation but absolute limit-setting, like no running to the
nurses station every minute #RNchat
chuymatt: @nursingpins well, we are agreed! MAKE it SO! #rnchat
ocdgirl2000: #rnchat T2 so many undocumented in this country now, we risk bringing yet MORE
communicable disease in an "already vulnerable" population..
rnchat: OK, one last topic coming up. #RNchat
EllenRichter: @chuymatt Exactly! Families can be our eyes, ears, & can provide emotional stability
(most times) when we walk away to do something #RNchat
EllenRichter: LOL >> RT @chuymatt: @nursingpins well, we are agreed! MAKE it SO! #RNchat
EllenRichter: Oops, I forgot the darn T3 with my last tweet #RNchat
ocdgirl2000: #rnchat T2 bringing children into hospital with positive TB tests,never been immunized, or
had their hep B..scary! I've seen'em, b-4 school!
ocdgirl2000: #rnchat T2 carriers of MRSA from serving in the wars..
rnchat: T4 Apple's iPad: Do you think such a devise is worth investing in? How could it improve
nursing process? (no "pad" jokes ;) #RNchat
EllenRichter: T3 @holisticnurses I bet home care would do better if signif others spent more quality
time in the hospital learning to care for pt #RNchat
chuymatt: T4- In my informatics research, studies show that touch is 2x faster than mouse/kbd
combos. If only it were not so shut down... #rnchat
ocdgirl2000: #rnchat T2 every time we bring in more visitors, we bring in more exposures. get patients
home & back to their "own friendly germs"!
EllenRichter: T4 I have only Windows knowledge. I dont know how the iPad works or how it can benefit
nursing. But knowing Apple, it can! :) #RNchat
InfusionNurse: T4..would wait for next generation before buying..too new to tell yet how it might work in
grimalkinrn: @InfusionNurse #rnchat T4 have used other touch screen computers to chart.. loved it.
My current hospital doesn't have those.
holisticnurses: @EllenRichter T3 #rnchat Indeed! I see challenges RN's face in the hosp. but what I'm
seeing is unprepared fams at discharge. It's busy tho

knowing Apple, it can! :) #RNchat
knowing Apple, it can! :) #RNchat
nursingpins: T4 I think it will eventually be a big help - but I spent an hr. teaching a nurse how to use
the new program IV pumps #rnchat
grimalkinrn: #rnchat T4 Screens need to be able to be cleaned. Many hospital cleaners can't be used,
makes touchscreens vectors for cdiff, VRE, MRSA.
EllenRichter: T4 Call it what you want~iPad, e-prescriptions, EMRs~everythng electronic will help make
things safer & more accurate in health care #RNchat
nursingpins: T4 hospitals are going to have to get more involved in teaching all the new tech or the
divide is going to get greater. #rnchat
rnchat: RT @grimalkinrn: #rnchat T4 Screens need to be able to be cleaned. Many hospital
cleaners can't be used, makes touchscreens vectors for cdiff, VRE, MRSA.
EllenRichter: T4 Good point about infection control & multiple users with electronic equipment.
Sometimes we dont think about them! #RNchat
JennaMahanayRN: T4 being able to "touch" the screen rather than use mouse would seriously speed things
holisticnurses: @grimalkinrn #rnchat T4 our homecare RN's use tablets. I assign cases to them, can
review info, etc. I say go for it! Tablets at hospitals.

be used. Can't use those on touchscreens.
