I'm a hardcore night person who made the switch to working daylight hours within the past year. I never obtain enough sleep simply because I cannot fall asleep at a 'normal' time of night.
To awaken in the morning I set the alarm, muddle through the morning with my coffee to avoid feeling groggy, and just suck it up. If left to my natural devices, I'd sleep in until noon every day.
I lost 210 pounds in one day.
i kicked the first husband out.
What disgusts me most is the Barack HUSSEIN Obama presents this as a gun issue. The issue at hand is radicalized Muslims. I can spot a conflict of interest from miles away.
The fact that this was an attack on LGBT individuals is extraneous to the big issue at hand.
Christians are a hated minority here and in the world? Are you from planet earth? I have a Christian church on just about ever street corner where I live. My kids and I counted over 200 CHRISTIAN churches on our last road trip, which was about 200 miles round trip. Last I checked, being a Christian doesn't make you hated, or even CLOSE to a minority.
Rape is not a normal response to an intoxicated, provocatively dressed woman. Rape is not a normal response to any man, woman, or child, no matter what the circumstances are. Rape is not a normal response, period. Something is seriously wrong with any person who feels he or she has to "hold back" in order not to rape.
By the way, if it takes "total self control" to stop oneself from raping an intoxicated female, I'd say some introspection and heavy duty therapy is in order.
So you expect that a woman may do the things we've been talking about here - and I don't know if she did them or not (excessive ETOH, showing off her body excessively, going off alone with Turner), but a man must remain totally self-controlled at all times. Sounds like the double standard has been turned around.
Your view is that Brock Turner is solely at fault for forcing himself on the raped woman. And he may be.
People need to just go bowling or to a dance, a movie, somewhere public or semi-public, or have some chaperones to look out for them. Yes chaperones, even college students. They should behave conservatively in all regards, and not lose self-control. And they should keep an eye on their friends, male and female.
I am maybe not the best at explaining what I mean, but I have stated, and you failed to see it or understand, that her condition does not excuse his behavior. But in general, rape and the like can be prevented if women behave more sensibly and conservatively and avoid getting drunk, and avoid going to places where they are more likely to run into men who don't respect women, and avoid going off alone with men. They are less likely to end up naked behind garbage dumpsters if they use some old-fashioned restraint, common sense and good judgment.
Holding this view does not make me strange. It actually makes me pretty darned sensible. And it is good advice for women who want to avoid rape and for men who want to avoid rape charges.

Yes, double standard and old-fashioned, as stated in my first post.
Fail NCLEX on purpose. Trust me, I am a master problem solver and give the best advice.
I've went to the er a handful of times for a migraine. It was the worse pain I've ever experienced in my life. My cousin went to er for a migraine. Turns out it was a brain aneurysm, so to you it may be a simple headache, but you don't know what that person is experiencing or feeling or that "headache" is actually something else.
If you're going to potentially damage someone's career and jeopardize their livelihood by reporting them for narcotic diversion, you should be willing to stand up and do it without being anonymous. If you say you KNOW this person is using drugs, then stand up.
On the other hand, if you think the person may be using drugs but aren't 100% sure, then you have no business reporting that they are. Report what you SEE, not what you THINK.
If a medication is due every eight hours prn, then 15 minutes on either side of it is not a big deal. An every two hour prn med would be different. If the patient has been waiting for everyone to get out of report so she could have her pain meds and is in significant pain, it seems kinder to go ahead and medicate her before going into report so that the next nurse doesn't have a patient in uncontrolled pain to deal with.
You already talked to your manager; you've done your due diligence. It is now up to your manager to follow through. It is also not your manager's duty to report to you how the situation is resolved. If there is disciplinary action, you don't get to know about it. It's confidential.
I don't see any facts in the original post -- except the 7:15 and 2:45 times which seem pretty sensible to me. Are you sure your concern is narcotic diversion or potential narcotic use rather than getting someone into trouble?
