Watching out for your own needs in the ER, by Patricia Iyer, MSN, RN, LNCC @AvoidMedErrors @patiyer #nurseup #nursefriendly

Watching out for your own needs in the ER, by Patricia Iyer, MSN, RN, LNCC @AvoidMedErrors @patiyer #nurseup  #nursefriendly:"While in Naples, Florida, my husband, Raj developed a raging cold, sore throat and dripping nose and was concerned he had strep throat when he started to run a fever. Not sure if we should go to walk in clinic, try to find a local doc to see him, or go to an ER, I called an ER nurse I know in Naples, who suggested that once a local doc heard Raj had a cardiac surgery history, he’d be asked to go to the ER. So we went off to a local hospital. Lesson one: when you are out of town, always see if you can make contact with a local person to find out the best emergency department/doctor for your situation."
