...Every March 18th...
15 years for me as well. I reach my 25/55 and I am OUT. Well, i'll have more than 25 in at that point, but it just pads the pension.
So the question was posed as to where / how are they getting these guns? Some legally i'd imagine. If memory served the Newtown shooter had assistance from his own mother in obtaining firearms legally and she took him shooting as it was an activity that he liked to do- then again this may have been tabloid fodder. Then again, if you'd like to obtain a gun illegally, I am positive that if you went into several of the bad parts of some of the cities within a 20 minute drive from my own home, you could be well outfitted in minutes if you have cash in hand.
Laws are a great start, but in my very humble opinion the laws need to be the same across the board nationwide.
i have worked pd doing many many things from home care to corrections to acute care to hospital administration. Right now I have a call in job not related to nursing at all. I do work summer school -that's easy money.
So scary, hoping for the best!
occasionally hospitals will take sharps. I know that my local ones will if it's not an enormous amounts. I get the mail away ones now.
Venting is good. Venting is healthy.
Our district did not support a walk out. I will be interested to see in something happens at 10 am regardless.
my door tends to stay closed by unlocked, but i'd say a good 1/3 of the time i lock and chock. it gets hot in here, even with the a/c on.
catching up after 2 days of snow filled fun... yay...
the whole family needs more education about t1d. The dexcom needs to accompany the child to school so that trends can be tracked throughout the day. The argument that the child does meantime fingersticks is invalid. I have a child that has a libre and still occasionally does fingersticks. they don't always agree.
If the child wants to put his own number into his pump, then that's fine, but it can't be completely unsupervised. He has to have the nurse on duty check and record his numbers prior to him hitting the go button. If another student comes in, during that time, my rule is that unless it's life and limb, it has to wait, my diabetics and their numbers are important. I tell the staff and the students all the time not to distract me during the times that i'm recording.
I know you already had your meeting and I hope it went well. I hope you armed yourself with a copy of his orders and explained to them the importance of the school knowing fully what is going on with his and his disease for the third of the day that he is in your care. A lot can happen in that time. I hope that you did explain to them that he is not being compliant. Because it's so easy for the small lacks in compliance now to turn into big issues later - not coming all together, then disregarding carbs, then skipping insulin doses. He's got to learn to keep his treatment tight.
