  2. Things you'd LOVE to be able to tell patients, and get away with it.
    No, your apple juice isn't as important as the lady trying to bleed to death in the next room, nor the 33-weeker antepartum down the hall who's sitting on the toilet trying to push, that I am trying...

  3. Do you ever plan on leaving the bedside?
    While I would eventually like to do something outside the hospital job, I really can't think of what I'd like to do on a fulltime basis apart from that. I don't really see myself as a teacher, I...

  6. Would You Prefer a Male Nurse?
    You hate male doctors and nurses? Without even knowing them? You certainly can ask for the caregiver you want, but to say you hate someone just because they are male? I don't understand. On what...

  7. Stupid things that bosses have you do
    What really fries me is when it's not the VIP making such a big deal over themselves, but admin does. We had one not too long ago who was a very nice patient with a very nice family, and probably had...

  8. An OB's Birth Plan
    I have to admire this doc's candor but do not agree with his stance on so many things. The evidence strongly suggests that many of the things he is intent on doing are either a) not helpful; or b)...

  12. Things you'd LOVE to be able to tell patients, and get away with it.
    I'm a pretty crunchy kind of gal. I have a shirt that says "The Hippies Were Right", if that gives you any idea of the kind of things I believe. So if you don't want the Vit K, Emycin, Hep B, or...

    He was hardly being rewarded. I'm sure if he'd had his druthers, he'd have rather not been raped and infected with HIV and not needed the Neulasta to begin with. Go, live in his country for an...
