Sun 23 Apr, 2006 04:29 pm - I agree we can be our own worst enemies. I try to keep new people away from certain staff members & docs as long as I can. We have a couple people who've run off several people. Problem... (view)
Sat 22 Apr, 2006 10:13 pm - We're constantly flip flopping rooms. We usually just move the cases--not the crew. If a room finishes or has down time, we'll run another case in it. Our anesthesia people hate moving... (view)
Fri 21 Apr, 2006 04:38 pm - What do you mean swap for doctors? Do you mean move cases around from room to room? We do that a lot. Anything to move the schedule around. I hate it when I'm in a room, but understand it... (view)

Sat 8 Apr, 2006 01:03 pm - Shortage I'm our educator/relief charge & I've been in rooms for weeks now. The regular charge nurse is in a room lots of days. Our nurse manager has had to act as charge & our... (view)
Mon 3 Apr, 2006 04:56 pm - Sorry, but I have to disagree that people with no floor experience are at a loss in the OR. Some of our strongest nurses have no floor experience, myself included. I love getting new grads in... (view)
