Ahh I always enjoy these.
I will suction all trachs, watch all wound debridements, and assist with all bedside burr holes for everyone who previously posted. I will also handle cdiff as long as a mask is handy. I'm also not afraid to mop a floor following a graphic incident should the need arise.
I need someone to provide foot care and eye care. Especially if the eyelids are stuck shut with goo or if there is a foreign object protruding at me. Eye surgeries in the OR were the nearest I've ever come to passing out. The graphic traumas? Insides on the outside? Not a flinch.
I also need someone to step up and manage blatantly manipulative families or manipulative post open heart patients who absolutely refuse to get up and participate in basic cardiac rehab or a cardiac diet. I fall short on the line of distantly firm and professional and tend to drift towards heinous drill sargent witch.
The incessant whining of a few of these types juxtaposed with my other patients who are doing everything possible to live long enough to maybe get a heart, and who are oftentimes surrounded by the nicest families in the world, really turns my crank.
I also need someone to have a word with people regarding the use of their friendly call light instead of coming to the nurses station and "hovering" for a Sprite while I'm on the phone discussing privileged information.... Like giving a full report to the on-call OR team regarding my post heart transplant who just coded.
Sorry. Long few weeks so the list may be more extensive than normal.
I... I... just realized you said ice, not ice cream. I was confused and intrigued. I may still try ice cream in wine.

Will I still be allowed over for a drink too?
You beat me to it. She just jumps in, stamps her feet, and flounces away.
Penalty box for poor health care reportingIn the Q&A that followed the talk, managing editor of The Daily Briefingand Forbes contributor, Dan Diamond, asked Offit if journalists write stories about “debate” on vaccines– and people die from not getting vaccinated–are they party to murder.
Offit responded with the idea that we should have “journalism jail” for such individuals.
Although that kicker brought some laughter among the audience, Offit later added more solemnly, “You work in a hospital and you watch children die from preventable disease–it makes you passionate.”

If one really believes that the film is wrong (I am NOT making any comments if the film is right or wrong), then why would you not want people to see it?
In a court proceeding the best thing that you can get someone to do is make a false statement openly. When someone asserts their 5th Amendment rights, the assumption is that they are guilty.
The other issue that I see is either thinking that people are either so weak minded, unintelligent, or ??? that they make life and death decisions based on a movie. That is insulting to people who may have chosen not to vax for other reasons.
In the same way, a campaign by the provax community urging people to see the film and see the nonsense (as someone on this thread described it) would add more to the credibility of the provax argument than suppressing it.
Finally, if a movie is so influential, why has healthcare not made a movie that refutes Vaxxed’s assertions? If people do make life decisions based on movies, then is not a pro vaccination movie the solution to the problem?

See what I mean about the noise machine? Same old schtick over and over and over.
I am going to see this film later in the week. I really find it so unprofessional to polarize the topic into pro and anti vaxxer without any discussion. There are many corporate interests embedded in the kinds and number of vaccines recommended for children, teens and adults alike. Personally, I believe as a nurse it is my job to critically think through all perspectives regarding vaccines, not just what my nursing textbooks and the CDC say. I find it simply appalling that some health professionals do not take harm caused by vaccines seiously. I don't consider myself an anti vaccine promoter but let's look at documented cases of real harm people including young children have experienced. Saying it ain't so and let's just keep injecting SIMPLY ISN'T AN ETHICAL RESPONSE. At a bare minimum our oath to do no harm requires respect for people's experiences and a desire for better investigation and safety.

Yes, I am quite versed in SCIENCE. Thank you for noticing.
The article, “How facts backfire - The Boston Globe” seems like it is based on pseudoscience...
The irony of discussing the Tuskagee trials related to the mistrust of vaccines while overlooking the forefather of the anti vaccine movement and the producer of the movie in question having his medical license revoked for designing and conducting a trial which abused children by not following the ethical rules that came from the Tuskagee trials.
