I was laughing so hard reading this! I've worked LTC and I can visualize the whole thing!
If labor is not an option, then a partial birth abortion isn't an option, either, as it involves laboring, albeit to a lesser dilation than an intact vaginal delivery. And if an operative delivery is indicated, there is still no benefit to the mother's life or health to destroy the baby in the process.
While I understand the the life of a crashing mother is of primary importance, it is beyond my comprehension that a breathing baby would be left to die in an OR basin.
Fine, Katja. You disagree.
And as terrible as it sounds, all I could think of was how fortunate it was for society that this character had rendered himself permanently incapable of producing offspring........you just can't fix that kind of stupid. Yanno?
This is criminal and they have to be punished.
Yesterday all of the kiddies were in entertaining the folks with their costumes when a resident was discovered stone. cold. dead. TRICK OR TREAT!
They waited until the kids were gone to call for the hearse.
As I've said before, I'm an atheist and I often wear skirts and dresses.
Patients LOVE to see a nurse in a skirt. Especially in white.
The Hardest part of the LTC med pass for me always was running to the supply closet when I found the empty bottle of test strips, ... then to replace the tylenol bottle with 1 tab in it, etc., etc......:selfbonk:
I like LTC. Don't love it but like it. I hated being a floor nurse there but then, I hated that in the hospital, too. I am now doing hospice, visiting, and love it. Lots of freedom, lots of autonomy, and no MDs changing orders every 30 seconds.
It depends to a degree on your state. I started in NY and LTC was very tightly watched by the gov't so the corner-cutting I see here in TX, where they have actually outsourced a lot of survey, wasn't possible. But it's hard, wherever you are.
Seriously. Only when men started becoming nurses were we permitted to stop dressing like nuns. Now RNs are supposed to start dressing like Student Nurses/orderlies again, go figure.
Oh girl if it means that much to you!
Will see what is in my old bedroom closet back at my parent's house. Failing that am sure lots of friends still have theirs chucked into some closet somewhere.
Whatdoya want? St. Vincent's (no stripe), College of Staten Island (stripe), Wagner College (stripe), maybe even can scrounge up a Hunter-Bellevue (stripe). Choice is yours, knock yourself out!
I didn't get a cap or a stripe. And I want one.
You tell the nurse that you need to get up because the cows got out. See? Yonder beyond the crick!
If you keep falling because you keep forgetting that you can't walk and need to pee and have a Foley you might have a problem.
