    Frankly, I'd be more concerned about the advisability of mothers caring for withdrawing infants alone in private patient rooms, without immediate supervision and assistance.

    We've discussed here the challenges of rooming in for newly delivered women who are often in pain, fatigued, sleep deprived, stressed, etc. Add an irritable, crying baby with feeding difficulties and painful diaper rash, and I believe there is a significant risk of overwhelming mom, perhaps to the point of desperation.

    The baby was choking and you relieved an airway obstruction. A comparison would be an adult DNR patient who chokes on a sandwich at lunch. In that case, would you stand by and withhold the Heimlich maneuver? I don't believe you would.

    Intervening to alleviate a witnessed choking episode prevented this baby from experiencing an untimely and excruciating death. I believe that is far different than resuscitating a patient whose natural death is imminent due to a known and non-recoverable condition.

    Quote from morte
    the bible does not discuss abortion, never mind negatively. and it did exist in those times.
    The Bible does not discuss bombs made from fertilizer, the use of airplanes as weapons of mass destruction or gas chambers, either.

    We are taught "Thou shalt not kill..."

    I'll agree to disagree, but have no doubt that the aforementioned Commandment refers to the willful destruction of innocent life, regardless of the means.

    To my knowledge, no. My daughter attends school out of state and we asked about this before she moved, because she takes a number of prescription medications. As long as your state pharmacy board allows scripts from out of state prescribers to be filled (and hers does), I don't believe there is any legal restriction on school personnel administering them.

    As a practical matter, her local doctor asked us to find a physician near her school to co-manage her care in the event that she has a change in condition, because she is halfway across the country and will only be home over holidays, but the new physician has not re-written any of her prescriptions. She is utilizing refills from the original RXs written by her doctor at home.

    I would be worried that a trump voter would provide sub-standard care to people he or she deemed "undesireable" aka minorities, non-Christians, members of the LGTBQ community, foreigner, disabled people....basically non-Wasps.


    As a supporter of our President, I assure you that there is no human being whom I believe to be "undesirable" or unworthy of my care.

    That you have expressed such a thought concerns me.

    This sounds a lot like home health nurses who set up weekly meds for clients to self administer or family to give at home. I don't think it amounts to dispensing, but I guess your BON should answer that.

    If anyone here would like a good perspective on the categorization of psychiatric meds and the attached stigma, I highly recommend reading "A Spectrum Approach to Mood Disorders" by James Phelps, MD.

    He also maintains a website with much of the same information. I wish I had been introduced to these concepts years ago.
