    It is a proven fact that abortion affects women emotionally for a very long time.
    No. It is a proven fact that the Right to Life website says that it does.

    The experience of those women I know who who have had abortions - and I include myself and my mother - does not support the lies of the anti-choice organizations.

    rrandle, you have chosen important, worthwhile work.

    Dude. I AM the supervisor. And while the practice alert is nice, nowhere does it say you can walk out without someone to cover.

    Have you ever been represented by a union.

    After 12 hours the average human is exhausted. Add in extreme frustration and anxiety that the nurse being required to stay is feeling and boom, there is a patient safety issue waiting to happen.

    If there are nurses chronically calling out, that is a management issue.

    In a union, it is recognized that situation happen where a nurse will need to work beyond their shift. A union contract makes sure that this goes down in a fair and consistent way.

    Unions also help to minimize the extremely cavalier attitudes that many managers exhibit.

    If their is a crying child at school, wondering where mom or dad is whilst all the other kids have been picked up....that could be considered abandonment as well......NO?
    I have been represented by a union. That has nothing to do with the requirements of my license or the content of my character. Even then I could not walk out on my unit with no one to hand-off to. If you work with people who lack the character to come in for their shifts and stay when irresponsible jerks call off no union is going to fix it. When we have a blizzard it doesn't matter whether we are union or not. I show up with an overnight bag and work a triple with 4 hours of sleep in between.

    And your crying kid is not my problem. Any working parent needs bullet-proof backup plans in place, union or no.

    Do you have a pulse? Is your license current?

    CA's BON has not accepted EC for years, except under certain circumstances. Your girlfriend should have done her homework.

    I think it's c. None of the mentioned drugs are bedside-emergency stuff.

    This is criminal and they have to be punished.
    Whoa, whoa, whoa!

    The residents need their meds.

    The nurses should be ordering meds on time.

    Meds are being "borrowed" to take care of the residents.

    There's a system problem here, and, while this is illegal, it is far from criminal in the way you are using it. Start getting meds ordered on time.

    Although it took me a while to understand what a "cay" cey was...lol, I just wanted to let you know that if you desperately need the "k" if you hold down your "alt" key and type "75" you will get a capital K and if you hold down the "alt" key and type "107" you get a small k. I hate when that happens!
    Thank you!

    My keyboard seems to have reset itself today.

    Suanna, the turning her in, perhaps. Turning her in to the cops for an angry email? That is not a friend.

    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.

    One of the nurses said they shouldn't have tested me again because it could atrophy the muscle, so now I know that I can't get the test again, I just inform them that I have a +PPD.
    What muscle? It's an intradermal - even less deep than subcutaneous - injection.

    We routinely test people twice, and annually.

    A naked corpse was found and the cops knew she was a nurse. Her stomach was empty, her bladder was full, and her ass was chewed.

    1) State

    2) Writing care plans to cover our butts rather than drive care. See 1.

    3) Shift wars.

    4) Resentment between levels, i.e., CNAs to LPNs, LPNs to RNs.

    5) Nurse-itis. If the resident needs to pee toilet him, don't wait for him to soil himself and lose what little dignity he has left.

    6) Proprietary behavior.

    7) Not being able to get the best supplies due to cost. Example: our wound nurse have us a sample of an incredible product for deep wounds. Had a guy whose decub was down to the BONE. Cartilage showing like a chicken bone. Within ONE WEEK we were just waiting for the dermis to granulate in. Now we're back to collagen sheets. DNS won't buy it. You really think another YEAR of treatment with gauze and saline is more cost-effective?!

    8) Families who ask why Dad, in end-stage Alzheimers with Korsakoffs, tube-feed, diabetes, atrophied frontal lobes, isn't getting better.

    9) Families who find a need to call once a week to complain about the care Mom is receiving. After talking to the nurse on during their visit. Then saving all of the calls for a big one to the DNS. When Mom is being cared for marvelously.
