T1 In class/clinical, my iPhone is my lifeline. I have an iPad too, and LOVE it for my texts, but the iPhone is killer for reference #RNchat

Thu Jan 20 18:14:08 PST 2011

Hi all glen downunda. #rnchat

Thu Jan 20 18:14:31 PST 2011

@nowhitecaps They let you keep it in clinical? That is pretty cool. Are there rules attached? #RNChat - Re: Iphone

Thu Jan 20 18:14:42 PST 2011

T1 Kinda silly, but I love that our copier can store images to print on demand. I'm the only one who uses the feature. #RNChat

Thu Jan 20 18:14:44 PST 2011

I love using Camtasia; I develop presentations that students can view anytime, anyplace. #RNchat

Thu Jan 20 18:14:53 PST 2011

@EllenRichter @cmizer17 My fav is full body lift used to move patients cause it prevents staff injury! #RNCHAT

Thu Jan 20 18:15:02 PST 2011

No iPhones in corrections - contraband. Boo! #rnchat

Thu Jan 20 18:15:11 PST 2011

Thu Jan 20 18:17:43 PST 2011

T1 I'm enjoying our new monitoring system in ICU. Everything is electronic & programmable & has memory. Its terrific for documenting #RNchat

Thu Jan 20 18:17:51 PST 2011

What is camtasia? #RNChat

Thu Jan 20 18:17:52 PST 2011

T1 - it's old school tech, but "nurse on a stick" seems to be rather popular as you can never get one when you really need one! #RNchat

Thu Jan 20 18:17:53 PST 2011

T1 I love Snag it for screen captures and voice overs. Lately enjoying the Flip HD cam.so easy to use! Use them in Staff Development #rnchat

Thu Jan 20 18:17:53 PST 2011

@nurseeducator @SSannerPhDRN Camtasia gives a polished professional finished product! #RNCHAT

Thu Jan 20 18:17:55 PST 2011

@holisticnurses might be something you'd want to share? #RNchat

Thu Jan 20 18:18:09 PST 2011

Camtasia? I'll have to check into that one! RT @Safety4Nurses: @onlinenursing @SSannerPhDRN @nurseeducator Camtasia is cool! #RNchat

Thu Jan 20 18:18:10 PST 2011

T1 Of course couldn't live w/o my iPhone. Even though it insists "T1" should be "U2." #RNChat

Vimeo.com is something I just learned about today; you can make your own videos to share. Gonna try it soon. #RNchat

Thu Jan 20 18:18:18 PST 2011

T1 - #RNChat - Clinic - EMR (practice partner brand - very easy to use/read) - College - 'JING' - free screen capture software

Thu Jan 20 18:18:41 PST 2011

My Fav Tech Thing At Work Is The Hand Held Bar Code Scanners We Use 4 Meds & Pt Verification #RNChat

Thu Jan 20 18:18:45 PST 2011

#RNChat Also our scheduling system is cool. I can schedule a #nurse to see a pt in the eve and he/she ALSO sees the #EMR of the pt. T1

Thu Jan 20 18:18:55 PST 2011

T1 the other thing I like is iClickers in the classroom. You can get instant feedback from the students #RNChat

Thu Jan 20 18:18:56 PST 2011

@NursingCenter T1 Camtasia is good for voicing over ppt and converting into videos #rnchat

Thu Jan 20 18:19:14 PST 2011

@PamelaKline @Aggiern95 just got my droid X back (I washed my other one in the washing machine a few weeks ago) UGH #RNchat

@Safety4Nurses T1 And hover mats! Have always wanted to take one of those down into the

basement hallways

:) #RNchat

Thu Jan 20 18:19:58 PST 2011

@cmizer17 Bar code scanners remind me of my days working in a grocery store and they are they greatest for patient safety! #RNCHAT

Thu Jan 20 18:20:00 PST 2011

@Aggiern95 We use those - very very cool stuff. Profs use them to gauge understanding of material in real-time. #RNChat

@onlinenursing T1 Isnt that dictation (using something like Dragon)? We should just all be able to dictate our progress notes! #RNchat

Thu Jan 20 18:28:29 PST 2011

@onlinenursing great idea to use Dragon for charting! Staff would love it! #RNCHAT

Thu Jan 20 18:28:29 PST 2011

@SSannerPhDRN Oh, no! Sorry to hear it. On the bright side, you can get a brand spanking new one to replace it. #RNchat

Thu Jan 20 18:28:30 PST 2011

@Safety4Nurses I heard that too! I get updates from ehow and that was in there with the rice trick! #RNChat

@rnchat Great topic! No my hospital's legal department is working on a SM policy! #RNCHAT

Thu Jan 20 18:35:23 PST 2011

T2 Not sure about the hosp, but the school does. Absolutely no discussion of clinical experiences, not evn "I had a good day today." #RNChat

Thu Jan 20 18:35:55 PST 2011

T2 My hospital needs to get "with it" in the social media arena. Our rules are: block all social media sites from the whole campus #RNchat

Thu Jan 20 18:36:48 PST 2011

@nowhitecaps Wow! Not even "I had a good day"!! strict but that is good #RNCHAT

Thu Jan 20 18:37:15 PST 2011

T2 No official policy yet

work related. I use FB 4 my department #rnchat

Thu Jan 20 18:37:35 PST 2011

told

it's in development. Able for now to use SM as long as it is

@EllenRichter I agree with you, that's definitely not the way to address social media. #RNChat

Thu Jan 20 18:38:04 PST 2011

@nowhitecaps Wow, I'm pretty savvy with my social media skills & even I say that I had a lousy or good day. Thats not doing harm! :) #RNchat

@EllenRichter that was the way it was at ALL the hospitals I did clinical at. Their thinking must be: block it = it does not exist! #RNchat

Thu Jan 20 18:39:25 PST 2011

@EllenRichter T2 Is your institution open to discussion if you went through the chain of command? #rnchat

Thu Jan 20 18:39:26 PST 2011

T2 i am not sure if there is a policy in place but I also don't work in a hospital #RNChat

Thu Jan 20 18:39:28 PST 2011

T2 I think facilities fear that all the health care providers will be busy updating their SoMe

sites instead of patient care

Thu Jan 20 18:39:31 PST 2011

sigh #RNchat

@NurseEducator Not using Dragon software but a number of device appsthat charts everything for me! no headaches & saves time. #RNChat

Thu Jan 20 18:39:39 PST 2011

@nowhitecaps That is a really strict policy #RNChat

Thu Jan 20 18:39:51 PST 2011

@EllenRichter No, no. Sitting and messaging. I can't walk and chew gum. #RNChat

Thu Jan 20 18:39:56 PST 2011

@nurseeducator I would imagine there are a few who might listen to my banter. But administration is not SoMe savvy @ all. #RNchat

@SusanNiemeierRN Wow can you share those app names with us? #RNchat

Thu Jan 20 18:41:05 PST 2011

@EllenRichter Irritating! So many useful and quick ways to responsibly use SM in your job. #RNchat

Thu Jan 20 18:41:14 PST 2011

T2 it's sometimes difficult to get on SoMe at the hospital b/c of the firewall protection. #RNchat

@SusanNiemeierRN read that voice interface is good from an ergonomic stance #rnchat

Mayo has an entire Social Media department. And a web site that has a social network "university" where one can learn all aobut it. #RNChat
