It was an attack on this country. I weep for those in Orlando as I did for 9/11 and for Boston, among other attacks on our country.
I dont go around saying but that was a heterosexual theater or building!! I bet there were heterosexual people in that club that night as I know sometimes I would go out with my homosexual friends to party back in the day when I did party. This is the problem, we are focusing more on the people's sexual orientation instead of what happened. People died. People were horrifically injured. Let's grieve that loss.
People cant have it both ways. Either we are equal, or we are not. I weep that people who were so young and had their lives tragically taken or forever changed that night, should not have. I weep for the potential that is gone now. These people should be remembered for losing their lives way too early. Not who on earth they slept with. Because, I don't care who they chose to sleep with. I care that they were human beings who had potential to make a great difference in this world. And hate killed that.
It was actually a mistake, it was from a vape pen I didn't know had weed in it, which is why I didn't think I would be positive for it it was all weird, but anyway I don't need to explain myself to anyone not like you've never made mistakes, and I said thanks for your judgement I didn't say anything about it being wrong blah blah are you on this page just to look for **** to start?
I don't think the hour before and after applies to PRNs...
Providers MAKE money for the man, nursing is viewed as COSTING money for the man.
Corporate health care.. at it's finest.
If you are stating that "I pretty much tolerate" and "do not necessarily like her", why would you want to agree to take NCLEX and apply to work in the same area? Do you want to be her new BFF? Put it out of your mind and move on with your life.
Screenshot of that policy or it didn't happen.
Part of the review process for policies goes through the legal department. Doubtful a lawyer would ever let something like that slide.
Responding to an inquiry about whether or not a specific person is in the facility is not a HIPAA violation, HIPAA specifically allows for this information to be disclosed. It also allows for specific inquiries about the disposition of the patient at discharge to be disclosed so long as the patient was not transferred to a mental health facility. There is no HIPAA violation in looking up or telling a family member that their mom/dad/whomever was transferred to such-and-such nursing home. How would any of you feel if you called to check in on your mom or dad and was told they aren't there any more but they aren't going to tell you where they are? That's fine as long as there is a legal requirement to do so, but no such legal requirement exists.
You handled it well, and appropriately. Unfailing politeness and calm in the face of rude and demanding behavior will always put you beyond reproach. Nice work.
Follow policy. Otherwise you open yourself up to discipline.
I work prn in a MICU - land of c.diff, tube-feed and liver-failure related diarrhea, and never-ending secretions around ETTs and trachs.
For brevity, I will side-step all the ethical reasons not to alter a patient's appearance and focus on the nursing practices and skills involved here. Even dried secretions or fecal matter can be dealt with by use of sufficient water. Saturate the area, then change the linen. Ridiculous "wipe" products encouraged by some facilities do not clean. If you are tugging on hair to clean - you're not using enough water to soak the area.
And while it is sometimes a good idea to consider hair clipping in the context of tape adherence and eventual removal -- if you can't feel a vein because of a hairy arm, you're not nearly as skilled as you may think you are.
Tell that to the two CNA's I know who were fired for that.And I know another who cut a woman's filthy ,matted hair in the hospital and was fired and still another who shaved an Amish man's beard who also lost her job.....
I used the core curriculum when I took the CHPN exam and passed on my first attempt. I see there is a core curriculum for the CHLPN also.
There were a few topics that I used another resource to learn a little more about, but the for the most part the core curriculum had the essential info.
I completely understand what you are saying. But liaisons getting paid by the numbers of admissions they get seems like a huge conflict of interest. And the ones I am seeing ARE going into the charts and ordering meds and DME.
Absolutely, positively true. You are just now noticing? Everything has become monetized, even death.
