Hi. I haven't posted on MDC in a while but I'm struggling at my job. I'm a NICU RN in a unit that circ's. In the almost 5 years there, I have seen a number of really serious complications occur. Profuse bleeding being the most common though we recently had a partial amputation. Yjese babies go through so much. We spend so much time keeping them out of pain and watching for bleeding only to circ them!!! I don't get it!
Fortunately, we are a fairly low circ area, but not low enough, in my unbiased opinion.
I need this job. I cannot quit. But I am having a crisis of conscience here. Badly.
Any advice? Thanks!
PS At least we did away with the labelled circ permit for every baby boy that was admitted to the unit. That's small progress.
