    "Live & Let Die"

    When you were young
    and your heart was an open book
    You used to say live and let live
    you know you did
    you know you did
    you know you did
    But in this ever changin world
    in which we live in
    Makes you give it a try
    Say live and let die
    Live and let die

    What does it matter to ya
    When ya got a job to do
    Ya got to do it well
    You got to give the other fella hell

    You used to say live and let live
    you know you did
    you know you did
    you know you did
    But in this ever changin world
    in which we live in
    Makes you give it a try
    Say live and let die
    Live and let die

    ESRD you feel confident in your choices. Great.

    The rest of us feel confident in ours.
    Applause Applause!!!!!!

    I have carried malpractice insurance, and always will.

    Those that do not believe in it, fine for your opinion but I will stick with mine.

    I have given plenty of depositions but I have never been sued. And interestingly, the attorneys involved were aware that I carried the insurance.

    The only people against me carrying my own policy have been facilities that insure their own staff. Invariably, if a lawsuit comes up, the facility usually ends up backstabbing the nurses involved so that the facility comes off cleaner. As the malpractice insurance (paid by the facility) lawyers are more concerned about the MDs/facility, the nurses get the shaft.

    Your own insurance covers you, the facility's covers their butt.

    Thank you, but I will take care of me and mine.
