What is the best advice that an experienced ICU nurse can offer to new nurses on how to remain focused on the patient?
1."Learn about the equipment before caring for the patient."
2."Don't come to work in ICU until you are proficient in all the equipment we use."
3."Try to arrange equipment so that you have ample opportunity to use the power of your touch with the patient."
4."Until you are comfortable with equipment, ask to be assigned with another nurse."

Rationales:
1. Learning about equipment before caring for the patient is a good idea, but another suggestion is more important.
2. It is difficult to be proficient in all the equipment used in an ICU because it is so frequently updated and changed.
3. Touch helps to personalize the patient for the nurse. Touch also helps to reduce anxiety in the patient.
4. It is not always practical to be assigned with another nurse.
