    Well, we've shopped at Tar-jhay for years. It's quite fancy and upscale. :-)

    I use my middle name and it is a massive pain.
    I can understand that.

    People probably mistakenly call you "Dash" when your middle name is actually "Underscore".

    MAN, do I feel downright blessed that I never got addicted to those
    vile things. And the crazy thing is... I TRIED. I tried smoking a few
    times. Never got addicted. Never could tolerate inhaling, so I suppose
    that is why I never got addicted.

    I fight another addiction though, that is for sure... Food! Especially

    Breast is best.

    Of course, use a pump! Who is stopping you?

    Call La Leche league. (Talk to other moms.) DOZENS of resources available.

    No, we havent gone overboard. Breast is best.
    With all due respect, your response comes across as dismissive and is exactly the reason why I wrote this article in the first place

    I guess for me, if I was in a relationship with someone who made me cry all the time, I'd be ending that relationship. But that is just me and my own opinion. I had a boyfriend once who hated the fact I have horses, that I spent my money on them, or my time with them, etc. He said to me one day "its me or the horses", I think the thing that surprised him the most was that it didn't take me more than 1 second to say "see ya", So I guess alot of it comes down to what one is willing to put up with to be in a relationship, whether they are co-dependent or an enabler, whether they know their own worth, have self respect, and self esteem and whether they are the type of person who needs to be in a relationship just for the sake of being in a relationship. again this all just my personal opinion.

    At least cover the body with a blanket to hide the lines/blood

    Amen. I couldn't agree more. When Press-Ganey is officially dead and buried I will be ecstatic. Worst thing, how everyone has networked on everyone else so that we have extremes driving healthcare of comfortable bed versus life.

    I would also wish to have a increase budget for preventative medicine.

    Pay school nurses a reasonable wage!

    Quote from T-Bird78
    She did an amazing job, and her hospital was great at backing her up. My thought on this is, what if she hadn't stood her ground and allowed that sample to be taken due to the undue pressure from the police? She'd most likely be out of a job and persecuted for a breach of protocol. She saved not just her patient, but also herself and her hospital from major repercussions by sticking to her guns. I wonder how often this happens in the ER and it's not caught on camera. I think we can all agree she's our hero!
    You make an important point about the hospital being "great at backing her up." Doing the right thing for our patients is so much easier when we feel that administration is backing us up. Joy

    She was just amazing. She handled herself in a way that does credit to her profession and herself. What a role model. What a strong woman. She makes me proud to be a nurse.

    My husband who is a nurse and I were both stunned when we saw the video. I used to work in a Level I Trauma center emergency department and we had similar guidelines for legal blood draws and for providing information to law enforcement. I was so very proud of nurse Wubbles. We discussed advocacy in my senior year ethics class in nursing school. I can still recall the dean of nurses who taught the class saying, "You may be the only one standing up for the rights of your patient who may not be capable to take that stand." I always took this quite seriously and it helped me manage in intimidating situations. Thank you for your thought provoking article.

    I heard an update yesterday that the unconscious patient was an off-duty police officer from another town.
    Yes, from Rigby Idaho, just over the northern Utah border., he is a reserve sheriff ... and his department publicly thanked Alex for protecting him as a patient.

    You are a nurse.

    I am an LPN. I am also an RN. I have both licenses and passed both different NCLEX exams.

    When I had only my LPN I was constantly asked why didn't I get my RN or when was I going to go and get my RN.

    Now I have my RN and guess what I get asked now? When am I/why don't I go on and get my, because I don't want to be an NP? I'm quite happy where I'm at thank you!
