It will never end. as it should not. it was legal in most USA colonies, and was made illegal in an effort to control women, especially when the women's movement started to heat up. and yes, it is exclusively the woman's choice. if a woman is pregnant, or not, is none of your business.
ABORTION IS LEGAL. I'm so tired of people ringing their hands over a perfectly legal, acceptable, necessary medical procedure because it makes them uncomfortable! It doesn't matter how it makes you feel. It literally only matters to the person having the abortion, her healthcare provider and whomever she chooses to involve.
This would be like Jehovah's Witnesses trying to make blood transfusions illegal because they disagree with them. It's asinine.
And something being a small part of the overall service of an entity does not make it insignificant.
The single most effective way to reduce the number of abortions is access to safe and affordable contraception. PP provides that and has been doing so for a century.
Pro-life people like OC understand that. Forced pregnancy people don't care because the "real" issue is control of women's sexual behavior and has nothing to do with reverence for life.
Before this thread gets closed, I just want to say that those who dislike Trump seem to let him take over their thoughts. It was the same with the Obama haters.
Don't let Donald Trump get to stay in your head rent free. Try to discipline your thoughts to more positive ones. Don't let your hatred for this man erode your life.
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.
Her advanced degree does trump the "I've done my research"! I agree she should be able to handle it better, but, kudos to her for taking on the vaccine issue, we all should be doing it.
As an NP she is allowed to give whatever medical advice she wants (provided it is within her scope). There is nothing illegal about that. Most of us are pretty careful about it because it could potentially be a prelude to a tort, and I like to get paid for my time.
What bothered you so much about her actions?
This sounds like an "MYOB" situation to me. What concern is it of yours, really, what she is doing or saying on Facebook?
So I have a student in the special ed program with diabetes. He got diagnosed his freshman year and he is now a senior.
He just gave himself his first insulin shot ever!!!
We have been building up to this for 3 years now. Mom says he tries at home, but then wimps out. He has been prepping his insulin pen for me to inject him since school started. But I have still been giving the shot. We then had to wrap our head around giving the shot in the abdomen (where he can reach) instead of the arm. We were supposed to start the self injections next week, but he asked if he could do it today. Who am I to say no to that?!?!
He did it with no hesitation whatsoever. WOOT!!
We were so excited we gave hi fives and then we called mom on speaker phone.
I think you need to refer his parents to a pediatric opthamologist.
You're doing a vision screening, not a diagnostic test.
He is failing your screening. You don't have the equipment or expertise to determine why.
Nope, they don't automatically lose their ability to make any other kind of treatment decision. No one's really been able to explain it to me in any way that makes sense.
NCLEX pass rates are a poor way to evaluate a school. The NCLEX pass rate only tells you what percentage of their graduates pass the NCLEX. What you really need to know is what percentage of the people who originally enroll pass the NCLEX. Attrition rates in for-profit schools are generally high. If 95% pass the NCLEX but only 75% of the students who start actually graduate, that's not very good. Many schools, both for-profit and taxpayer funded schools give exit exams to manipulate the pass rate percentages. If you don't do well on the exit exam, you aren't allowed to graduate. This prevents weaker students from taking the NCLEX.
The other thing you want to know is how many students graduate on time, not just graduate. The accrediting agencies consider on-time graduation to be 150% of the scheduled program duration. If you take 6 semesters to complete a 4 semester program, technically you are considered an on time graduate.
He should have kept his mouth sealed.
No, it is not a HIPAA violation. However, the people who need to answer your question are at your work place. Plenty of places tell their staff their own adulterated version of HIPAA and conflate it with their own "privacy practices" as well. The Feds are not monitoring your chart activity; the people who are in a position to make any issue out of anything you do in a chart are within your own organization. Your manager needs to get an official answer for you, and my suggestion would be that you email the question so that you receive the answer in writing.
Short version: The question you need to ask is not whether this is a HIPAA violation (as it clearly is not) but rather, whether it violates any workplace-specific policies.
