I Hate Spleens Too
Kim, at Emergiblog writes about an experience she had with a sickly spleen. I am rather vigilant with patients who may not have a spleen. They get sick so quickly. So any patients who has had abdominal surgery get extra attention coming their way.
An interesting trend I noticed. Most patients don't know if they've had their spleen removed during their old surgery. I usually make it a priority to know what vital organs I no longer have, I think you should adopt this sage advice. Oh, and good nurses aren't made that way by studying at home...and...you really do have to have at least a highschool diploma:
Be a nurse and make good money....why gosh it never occurred to me to be a nurse until I picked up these matches!
