Every time the hospital rolls out a new endeavor that shoves their nurses into upheaval they don’t share the reason behind the new change. They just shove it down our throats.
I know lots of nurses in three states and let me tell you this is not just a “my” hospital problem.
Their new thingy is a prepping champion. Because all of a sudden there are new prepping guidelines. In all preps, betadine, chlorahexadine, chlorahexedine and alcohol. We’ve been doing it wrong, according to the company.
I’m not sure if this is a thing. Or the company that brings us betadine kits were jealous of the mandatory three minute dry time for the chlorahexadine and alcohol.
This was a 45 minute waste of my time. And the company paid for “experts” to fly in and awkwardly “teach” us how to prep.
It was all that I could do to stop the rolling of my eyes being audible.
If there is new evidence please bring it to us. We’re college educated, we’re smart. Don’t tell me there must be a change. Show me why there needs to be a change.
Or the rolling of my eyes will become audible.
