    When I started in the ER, an LPN trained me … she was awesome. Eventually they made it so LPNs could not be the triage nurse, even though she was a far better nurse than I. We used to mix up most of our own drips, including potassium, but now we are not allowed to mix anything with potassium in it, and during pharmacy hours, they don’t want us mixing up hardly anything anymore. I used to draw ABGs all of the time and hand it off to RT to run on the machine, but now only RT or MDs can draw arterial blood. EJs are off limits now, as well as IOs. Seems like every year they take away something I used to be able to do, but I’m not allowed to do anymore.

    What tasks have been taken from you?
