Evidence Based Practice

Evidence Based Practice

Theorem: Alcohol dehydrates people.
                    It is difficult to start IV s on dehydrated people.

Case Study:

The night before a hands-on clinical, the entire class felt it would be a good idea to go out and 'party'. The entire class arrived, sleep deprived and slightly hung-over, to find that clinical was being held in the multi-purpose room of the hospital school.
The lesson – How to start an IV.
The practice dummies – each other.

Results: Theorem proved.
Lessons learned.

Well played Deaconess Sisters.

It's been thirty years....! 
the last time that uniform was white...

Happy Nurses' Week!
