organization we have a committee called the Value Analysis Team or “VAT” which I am apart of and that is to review new products that the hospital wants to implement or exchange weather it’s based on price or technique. Out of 36 people in the committee only one is a bed side nurse and that is me. The insulin syringes that the committee passed on before I was a member saved them hundreds of thousands of dollars but, to be able to visually see the incremental numbers you had to remove the cap of the syringe, which caused for up most of 300% increase in needle sticks at our facility! People were not recapping properly because we need a two RN verification, they were doubling their risk of needle sticks and it was happening so often. With that being said each needle stick that occurs needs to be reported and documented and test need to be ran for the nurse and patient for safety reasons. Ultimately the syringes end up costing MORE money for the organization because they spent all the money on healthcare and labs for those who got harmed.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
