I'm sure there has been plenty of backlash already but I'm adding my voice too. Registered nurses are the most important care team members to oversee interventions such as HOB >30 degrees. RTs are vital, of course, but for nursing interventions, nurses step up not RTs. RNs and the rest of the nursing team are the ones with the patient 24/7. Give credit where credit is due. I'm loving the MedCram lectures. ***** otherwise. Thank you.

As usual MedCram lectures are to the point and clarifying difficult themes. However this VAP course was studded with lot of statistics which may be difficult to remember in the long run.
