    We've all been educated on safeguarding our patients, but sometimes it's good to have a refresher. Here's an article that explains how to recognize a pneumothorax and what to do if you spot one.
    I recently read a post on FaceBook that included a great way to document proper needle insertion over vital areas. I think using this terminology will help safeguard us if something unfortunate happens. "Documenting the methodology is a good idea: pinched muscle, oblique insertion, then released muscle (POR). Clip inserted at skin juncture (CSJ)."

    Does anyone else have favorite ways to document their safe practices or tips to remember for keeping our patients safe?
