My Dear Sarita,
Hey there my friend, advocate for you or call me and I will advocate for you................
Are they half baked at that hospital? Reinserted a Foley........I would have ripped it out of the bimbos hands and kicked he/she to the curb.
They do not know how to interpret a ECG for hypoK+.......... On the ECG, the QRS complexes begin to widen when the serum potassium drops to about 3 mEq/L, the ST segments may become depressed, and the T waves may begin to flatten. The U waves also begin to increase in size, becoming as tall as the T waves. Send them back to class.
Alas they all hate to see me coming because I always want to see my own ECG tracings.............My best advice to you is stand up for you. I know it is really hard when you are sick so please know I understand and I am sorry you had to go through this.
My post was my own personal thoughts and not a slam against anyone as Sarita knows my background and I try to support her with a bit of humor.I am a CCRN 26 years experience and managed the ER and Respiratory Care..........thus they hate to see me coming comment. They were my own staff. It is very hard to be a patient when your in your own ER. So please do not misunderstand my post.ThanksKitt
Dear Sarita,Of course you were sick, and when your the patient it is hard as we know to much and that can be a hazard too. I am just glad your doing better and stick to the books, you are going to be a brillant physician someday and I would be honored to work next to you. Gentle Hugs
