    Shall we either close this oone or return to the main event? The lady in the ER. Immigration had nothing to do with her situation. OK. Take immigration to the off topic/breakroom or current events. OK?

    I'm thinking we all have our opinions on what happened. Some of us want to not jump the gun and convict a fellow nurse, and some of us want to seen her "rot in jail' or "burn".

    People forget that simple mistake that we are all capable of making can land us in similiar situations. I would hate to know that my fellow nurses are posting my name on a message board, and hanging me out to dry, should I ever make a mistake...

    BTW, I think you mean, 'Fortunately'...


    Also, I'm pretty sure she wasn't related to you either, right?

    No actually, you jumped back in with the whole "we're all illegal" comments.

    I've read all of the thread, and I didn't see where anyone changed their mind. For the record, I still think it was the fault of the Dr. If you are implying that I changed my mind after the nurse resigned, then you are wrong. The nurse resigning means nothing to me or my opinion.

    Again, I will say that my opinion is that it was the fault of the 2 doctors who discharged her previously. She died within 45 minutes of her return. I don't believe that she would have survived. The nurse should have assessed her, but just because she fell to the ground doesn't give her a pass to the front of the list. We don't know, nor will we ever know what really happend. We don't know that she wasn't assessed, we don't know that she hadn't been seen because there were more urgent patients in front of her, and we don't know why the Dr's discharged her only 3 hours prior.



    If there is fault to blame, it's with the Drs. (that way, everbody knows my opinion, and won't confuse it and/or construe it meet their needs- )
    Did you read your post?

    You don't think that illegal immigration is a nursing issue?


    Come visit my ER....
    We get illegals where I work as well. We had one stay a year because he had no where to go. What isn't a nursing issue is whether or not Native Americans are legal.
