It is pretty easy to see how a person making 7.25 an hour would see a nurse making 4 times as much money as big bucks..
Are they using 100$ bills for toliet paper? No.
But they aren't in line for the soup kitchen either.
Yep. Once somebody is dead enough for a body bag, it's a good idea to leave him in it. I have never seen that work out well. (I had a lady who was pretty darn close to dead when we sent her to the OR from the ICU and declared dead after flunking surgery. While they were waiting for the orderly to take her to the morgue some med student wandered in and reached into her open chest to practice open heart massage. Damned if it wasn't sorta moving anyway, he screamed, and she got sewn up and brought back to us. But not for long. Again, sorry, Marie.)
Thanks for the article. I'm starting a new grad OR fellowship in less than a week. I'm SO nervous.
I laughed really really hard at this.
Then I felt awful for laughing so hard....
Noooooooo! Can't be. Poor kid!

I'm pretty sure suctioning isn't the issue... But eating a hamburger after a child just had throat surgery just seems to be worst idea ever. I think anyone with a bit of common sense would not do that.
I really hope that's just a nasty Internet rumor. Because if it isn't that family is carrying some well deserved guilt.
If you don't want to be a CNA, then don't. I didn't Enjoy being an aide.
Peace out ✌
you all take yourselves way too seriously
Just as other professions outside of nurses save lives. I never even implied that saving lives only happens in acute care hospitals. OrganizedChaos first said that medical assistants only work in clinics and are never in a position to even perform CPR or save lives. An obviously ignorant and demeaning statement.
Also - patients that are circling the drain are not forbidden to enter clinics. I've also seen patients code in clinics. All I'm trying to say is these generalizations from OC are not respectful.
When I was in nursing school, I worked as a CNA. A fellow CNA told me she was in medical school but had to drop out. She said she only lacked 3 hours before she could sit for her "doctor boards." Ummm, okay. Then she told me a few weeks later that was a NP but working as a CNA until she found a NP job. She had some crazy stories she would share with us fellow CNA's because prior to becoming a NP, she was a trauma nurse, after she was in a car wreck, when she was 3 hours away from getting her MD.
I got a good one for you guys. My girlfriends exfriend who was in MA school claimed to be in medical school to get his MD. 😒
It takes everything in me not to vomit directly in their mouth.
Especially hospital eggs.... Seeing the Smushed bits in the thick string of spit when I pull the spoon back does me in....
So far that is the only the I absolutely hate doing, it makes me ill.
Doesn't sound like a top nursing school.
