Relafen 750mg Pills $115.00

Relafen 750mg pills $115.00 The only person NOT unhappy in this old Parke-Davis ad is the nurse! The kid looks upset, relafen 750mg pills $115.00 the mother looks hostile and the doctor looks like he is watching to make sure the nurse doesn’t mainline the immunization. Relafen 750mg pills $115.00 This pretty much sums up nursing: scared patients, relafen 750mg pills $115.00 hostile families and grumpy old doctors who can’t let a nurse swab an injection site without ordering it done in a clockwise direction.

Relafen 750mg pills $115.00 Just kidding!

Relafen 750mg pills $115.00 Humility is a noble trait. Relafen 750mg pills $115.00 My humility gene got a kick in the pants this week. Relafen 750mg pills $115.00 Here’s the scenario:

Relafen 750mg pills $115.00 Female patient, relafen 750mg pills $115.00 36 hours post forearm-injury secondary to a sport. Relafen 750mg pills $115.00 No swelling. Relafen 750mg pills $115.00 No deformity. Relafen 750mg pills $115.00 No decrease in range of motion. Relafen 750mg pills $115.00 No bruising. Relafen 750mg pills $115.00 No point tenderness (and I was all over that arm like white-on-rice, relafen 750mg pills $115.00 looking for point tenderness). Relafen 750mg pills $115.00 Was able to continue playing after injury. Relafen 750mg pills $115.00 Chief complaint: it began hurting again after initial improvement. Relafen 750mg pills $115.00 Nurse-With-Overarching-Pride-In-Assessment-Skills (aka: me) tells ED MD that it just sounds like a contusion. Relafen 750mg pills $115.00 ED MD evaluates patient and orders x-ray. Relafen 750mg pills $115.00 “What???” I say incredulously. Relafen 750mg pills $115.00 “You have got to be kidding!” ED-MD-With-Patience-Of-Saint assures me he is not joking, relafen 750mg pills $115.00 that (1) patient requested an x-ray and (2) there is an area of point tenderness where ball met forearm (an area I had palpated rather thoroughly). Relafen 750mg pills $115.00 To make a long story short:

Relafen 750mg pills $115.00 The patient had a fracture. Relafen 750mg pills $115.00 There it was. Relafen 750mg pills $115.00 In all three views.

Relafen 750mg pills $115.00 I had a red face.

Relafen 750mg pills $115.00 No freakin’ way!!! Uh….yes freakin’ way!! I picked up my jaw and returned my humbled self to the triage room.

Relafen 750mg pills $115.00 So what did I learn?

  • Fractures are one of the most commonly missed diagnoses in the ED.
  • DOH! Before smooshing around looking for point tenderness, relafen 750mg pills $115.00 ask the patient where it hurts the worst and work your way around from there. Relafen 750mg pills $115.00 It’s amazing what you discover when you actually listen to the patient.
  • Doctors are doctors for a reason. Relafen 750mg pills $115.00 I am not a doctor, relafen 750mg pills $115.00 although I will occasionally play one in my mind.
  • Nobody’s perfect (sniff)!

Relafen 750mg pills $115.00 I have always felt that we learn more from our mistakes than we ever do from success, relafen 750mg pills $115.00 and I know I’ll be much less inclined to dismiss a potential diagnosis because it doesn’t meet “by-the-book” criteria in the future.

Relafen 750mg pills $115.00 You can never be too old or too experienced.

Relafen 750mg pills $115.00 Live and learn. Relafen 750mg pills $115.00

    Humble pie is sometimes hard to swallow, but we have all been there. It’s great that you are open enough to learn from the situation and share with us!

    Love the part where you say to ask and listen. So much can be learned by asking a simple question!!!

    Don’t beat yourself up about it. I had a broken elbow from a fall down some steps and it didn’t show up on xray for 3 weeks afterward. My doc was embarrassed when it did show up – he swore it wasn’t broken.

    no signs at all? just pain? that is rather unusual for a fracture.

    Just make a hot cup of coco, lie down and read “chicken soup for the nurse’s soul” maybe that helps a bit.

    Enjoyed your post. We need Emergency Department nurses, and I don’t think you could have lasted 27 years in that hectic, emotional enviroment without such a great sense of humor!

    I’ll bet you asked. It would be LIKE YOU to ask because you are the kind of nurse who listens to your patients. Perhaps she was crying at the time?

    Whatever. The most important thing is that she got an accurate diagnosis. Isn’t that why it’s called the health care TEAM?
