  2. Is it fair for the media to blame the RN in Texas for contracting Ebola?
    He masturbated a fetus? :eek: OK, I found a couple of articles in the news media on what he reportedly said. ...Fetus, don't fail me now...

  3. Is it fair for the media to blame the RN in Texas for contracting Ebola?
    I actually read the "Wikipedia" page on Burgess and cannot find anything he has done that is bad. Granted, Wikipedia is hardly an iron clad source of information, but I still could not find anything...

    However this turns out, there will be much scrambling by all involved parties to minimize liability or the appearance thereof. ;)

  5. Appropriate reaction to rude behavior?
    Some folks are just rude most of the time, and some are just rude some of the time; others are perceived as being rude, often due to circumstances and timing. Every case is different, and should be...

  6. How to get a job and where?????
    What specialty are you looking for? If it is in critical care or OB/Peds, you will likely need some experience in "Med/Surg" (does any hospital still combine those units anymore?). This will open...

  7. Does anybody else feel guilty about calling off?
    So, if people are "written up" (one of the hospital industry's and nursing's all-time faves) for doing something wrong or calling in ("sick" or otherwise), are they written down for doing something...

  8. Do we need a union? Management is taking advantage of us.
    Simple disagreement, especially when facts are included, here often leads to being labeled a malcontent or worse. Join the party. ;) If not so sad at times, it would be entertaining. And yes,...

  9. Do we need a union? Management is taking advantage of us.
    "Nurse driven" is similar to "Nurse-centric"... two (of many) great cliches of which to be wary. There is an old saying: "Ya paysY yer money, and ya takes yer chances" ;)

  10. Is it fair for the media to blame the RN in Texas for contracting Ebola?
    Regardless of which news channel/network/source is favored by anybody, why do we (as a society) insist upon believing that which any of the media throws at us as being anything more than opinion? ...

  11. URGENT: Are CDC Ebola Guidelines 'Good Enough'?
    Even if CDC Tom (he really does remind us of Baghdad Bob) stepped down, there would be far too many others like him who could be his replacement. Those who can... do; those who cannot... are...

  13. Do we need a union? Management is taking advantage of us.
    No breaks? You do not need to pay a union to fix that. I know a nurse who did not get breaks for the past two years that her hospital was audited by her state's Dept. of Labor; she (and others) just...
