    It is true that some unions have hurt some industries- but (and this is a big but) employers who treat employees equitably and fairly do not attact unions. Employees who feel valued and well-treated do not want to join unions. Employees who are well treated do not feel the need to protest, carry signs, join the CNA, or bring about ratio legislation.

    When unions come in ,and ratio legislation is drafted, employers have no one to blaim but themselves.

    When I was a new nurse, I would crumble. Now, I yell back.

    No one on this forum knows for an absolute fact if this was abandonment or not- only the FL BON can tell you this for sure.

    The mother said if she didn't want to go, she didnt' have to go. "It don't matter anyway"

    I too have taken care of a patient with Creutzfeldt Jacob disease. The associated dementia in this patient was so different than the Altzheimers, or other types of dementia Ive seen over the years. I actually had a scare once with this patient, when a tiny drop of of gastric juice splashed onto my lip, from the G-tube .I was SO paranoid that I would catch this devastating disease.

    The other thing Ive witnessed was breast CA, that had grown so large it broke through the skin, it was really awful, but the dear old lady did not seem to be in any discomfort, strange, huh?
    I've had two CJ pts. It is a devastating disease.

    Coincidentally, I had pt w/ a fungating breast carcinoma. She was fairly young. Her affected breast looked like it was made of rotten, moldy mushrooms.

    Had a pt with Pick's Disease.

    I just met an LPN who is getting an online BS in health care administration. She hurt her back, and can't work as a nurse anymore.
