kissy kissy

The past few days at work have been good. I am going with the flow, like I said, and learning to benefit from my preceptor's knowledge and organizational skills for the next two weeks.

Of course, they are giving us the sickest patients.

Probably the most amusing:

 Patient who came in with a diagnosis of poisonous snake bite. Now, this might seem run of the mill...until you find out where this patient was bit.

Yes. How does someone get bit on the tongue by a poisonous snake? Let's just say that the patient's blood alcohol level may or may not have been elevated upon admission.

And what does a bite on the tongue from a poisonous snake get you? You guessed it! A wonderful stay in the Intensive Care Unit and a complimentary endotracheal tube, making it easier and convenient for you to breathe!

Good afternoon:
By way of introduction, my name is Stephanie Jewett, RN, MBA from Iowa (US) and I have started a nursing blog (about 6 weeks ago). My blog addresses 30+ years of nursing experience and knowledge in various subjects to share with colleagues, students, moms, caregivers, patients and the general public. I have been searching on the internet for interesting blogs that I admire and are related to nursing or medicine. I found your great site and wondered if we could exchange links? I’m trying to build my traffic through other colleagues. Please take time to visit my site and let me know what you think. Thanks so much for your time, Stephanie
