I am exactly the opposite. I want so bad for this to be a real story.
Update, the nurse just called me and said that they are upset we took Doctors candy cos it was not for us to eat. That since they need nurse they will not fire her and since they will not fire her they can't fire nobody. So ladies and gentlemen , my nurse just saved the day, if this was just me an ordinary tech, they would have fired me over candy. The nurse offered to pay for the candy since they are so pained about it. I hope my own panel will go well and at lest termination is out of the way.
Got it. Dr. Hyman.

These are great references showing some of the damage we do buy eating commercial high sugar foods. And, the link between diet and inflammation becomes more important as we learn more about the relationship of inflammation and disease.
I don't think there is any question about how harmful our food choices are.
But, when I looked for some reliable information about some of the premises of your OP, like retained toxins needing to be flushed, it was hard finding credible experts without a financial interest.
I found that Dr Oz supports this approach.
I did find some credible experts who also doubt the cleansing idea.
Let's be clear," says Edzard Ernst, emeritus professor of complementary medicine at Exeter University, "there are two types of detox: one is respectable and the other isn't." The respectable one, he says, is the medical treatment of people with life-threatening drug addictions. "The other is the word being hijacked by entrepreneurs, quacks and charlatans to sell a bogus treatment that allegedly detoxifies your body of toxins you're supposed to have accumulated."
" "Detox" is a case of a legitimate medical term being turned into a marketing strategy – all designed to treat a nonexistent condition."
Is there any evidence that poor diet leaves toxins in your body that require interventions other than stop eating bad food.
Can you define the "cleanse" you advocate in any way?
Do have any good sources?
So a nurse decides to steal a discharge and decease patient Narcotics out that lock box. When should the DON have removed them? Is there a time frame for this to prevent these things from happening?
I just happen to come across this post; let me say that I do "agree" with the overwhelming opinion of hysteria regarding sugar "toxins".
Although, I also wish to state that "I" found the article the writer referred to "interesting" for the following reasons.
1-It was found in "JAMA" or the Journal of the American Medical Association. This is a "peer-reviewed" medical journal, it publishes original research, reviews, and editorials.
JAMA Internal Medicine*is an international peer-reviewed journal, seeks to provides information that may lead to positive change in our health and patient care delivery. Thus this process ideally subjects an author’s "scholarly work, research or ideas" to the scrutiny of other experts in the same field. The article the writer referred to can be (copy & paste) found at... JAMA.*2012;307(12):1273-1283. doi:10.1001/jama.2012.339 ( Journal of the American College of Cardiology Volume 57, issue 16, April 19, 2011- Pages 1690-1696)
2-*In addition, one of the American Heart Association recommendations for the general population is aim to improve "blood glucose" or sugar intake while eating a healthy or my words a "healthier diet" .
The AHA "7" cardiovascular health recommendations or "metrics": not smoking; being physically active; having normal blood pressure, blood glucose and total cholesterol levels, and weight; and eating a healthy diet) you may read yourself just access the link or copy and paste... Elsevier: Article Locator and read this article.
Articles may also be found at Google scholar with the full doi.org links above
I "do not fear any sugar toxins", or "radical diets". I do believe each one of us here can contribute to our Nursing Scientific knowledgebase; and maybe mini-self research or self assessment or topics that interest us or our patients.
I also admit that I enjoy the opportunity to annually make and keep a few of my New Years resolutions...to be a bit more cognizant of my Life and health choices, habits, and take note of what best benefits me in this gift called Life.
Ok. I have removed some off topic posts. Fine to disagree but if you haven’t even read the article commenting is rather worthless except to increase your post count
Agree, I think you could've handled it way better. It was passive aggressive, and at worst, downright rude. You asked for assistance, she stated her reasons for not helping, you should've accepted it. And we've all been there where charting actually does take priority - so that 30 seconds may have been taking away her time from charting a new IV or a vital sign that she's going to forget if she doesn't do it right then and there. There will be times when your service will be requested too, and whatever it is that you're doing, you simply cannot help. And we've all felt the burning eyes of patient's family members on us while we're charting but they think we're playing Solitaire on the computer. It shouldn't be the same when it comes to fellow staff members.
And yes, there are fellow nurses who aren't team players, they're present on every unit, every shift...I make note to not request their assistance, and when they request mine, I turn them down.
They don't care.
You could lease as many places as you want.
What they care about is how much they compensate you. Some of that compensation might be in the form of housing if that is what you negotiate.
I will go with, no, not much.
But, depending on the course, it may well help you in the real world.
Surprisingly, school will teach you next to nothing about first aid, and most nurses don't know what to do in the event of a car accident.
Falsification would refer to things that are false- hence the term.
If this was truly a concern, then nothing could ever be corrected. Respirations would have to remain at 112 and a heart rate of 16.
As far as actually typing the words "late entry" into the note- I would say that is a hold over from paper charting. It is clearly a late entry.
Medication question: has anyone ever been told that identifying meds is not within nursing scope of practice?
