  1. Criminal Assault due to "criminal neglect"?
    I think this is Fire Arms 101 when you take your class for your permit. Don't ask, don't tell. I've been reading debates at Allnurses.com about whether assaulting a nurse should be a different...

  2. Criminal Assault due to "criminal neglect"?
    Our hospital has 800 beds. A new section was built and is slowly being moved into. So figure there are maybe 500 active beds. Between ICU and the other units, maybe there are 4 patients per nurse....

  3. Criminal Assault due to "criminal neglect"?
    I went to the crime statistics. There have been two thefts on streets adjacent to the hospital, almost on the campus, in the last 6 weeks.

  5. Criminal Assault due to "criminal neglect"?
    Anything like that would be helpful. Maybe I can get the suppliers to come by and give us some demonstrations and/or answer questions.

  6. Criminal Assault due to "criminal neglect"?
    Yes I agree. The thugs know when the victims are going to be there. That gives them an advantage. The thug knows we're mostly female. Finally, the image of nurses has been sexualized, especially...

  7. Criminal Assault due to "criminal neglect"?
    Presumably, our danger is diminished once inside the hospital. (I am not so sure, since there is no attempt to screen people in the halls and all entrances to the place are wide open except at...

  8. Criminal Assault due to "criminal neglect"?
    Bless you. I know that concealed carry is a hot potato on this website and many others. My question to those who object to exercising their 2nd amendment freedom is simply... given this situation...

  9. Criminal Assault due to "criminal neglect"?
    I didn't put this on my original post. But the administrator and "Safety" officer simultaneously had convulsions when a nurse asked about concealed carry permits. After they recovered, they...

  10. Criminal Assault due to "criminal neglect"?
    We are SEIU. So far they have been incredibly uninterested. Some nurses who believe in and work with the union may try to get them to notice the problem. We'll see. But mostly, lights are not...

  11. Criminal Assault due to "criminal neglect"?
    We are trying to work on a team approach for going to our cars. This does not work as well upon arrival which is also (at this time of year) in the dark. So... it is more than likely we will at...

  12. Criminal Assault due to "criminal neglect"?
    The place where I work is instituting a new parking policy. To get to the lot where we are to park, we have to exit the rear of the hospital, go past a row of big dumpsters, past a lot full of...

  13. Rising Above It All.....
    Look... #1) Life is short... too short to hate your work. #2) Some units s*ck because they have snarky, back-biting, catty, clique-y people working there. #3) I have worked on those types of...

  14. Stupid (or impossible) things Joint Commission has required
    It is so unfair and unjust. If they happen to ask you something and you say "I don't know"... in our hospital, you can pack your bag and leave. BUT THAT's NOT ALL!!! They are going to go into...

  15. Stupid (or impossible) things Joint Commission has required
    The problem with our current set up down here is that the government doesn't go to the trouble of determining the standards and enforcing them. They contract out their responsibility to this agency...

  16. Stupid (or impossible) things Joint Commission has required
    They are unelected, unaccountable, almost unlimited in what they can decide to require. I spoke with a well-known expert on clinical research. They contracted her to advise them on evidence based...

  17. Stupid (or impossible) things Joint Commission has required
    They made the OR team where my daughter works have a little ringy-dingy bell (like the kind they use at the meat counter in the grocery store) to announce it is time for the "time out." They made...

  18. Who died and made Joint Commission "God"
    Our Core Measures are a mixed bag. On AMI we are superb and way beat the national average in door to cath-lab times. Our dicubitus rates are very low. When it comes to Pneumonia and CHF... we're...

  19. Who died and made Joint Commission "God"
    Just talked to my daughter who is an anesthesiologist. JC made them put a ringy-dingy bell in each OR room. Circulating nurse rings the bell and everyone stops and does their little final check. ...

  20. Who died and made Joint Commission "God"
    I'm just a peon, of course, and am not privy to all that transpires, but I'm on a shared governance council and we're the first clinical faces that see the most recent changes. I believe that the...

    Based upon everything the hospital suits are saying, we will not be allowed to bill Medicare/Medicaid for care we give if we lose accreditation. We had a visit some time ago and go provisional...

  22. Who died and made Joint Commission "God"
    I am not saying that I work in the world's greatest hospital. But I've been a nurse for 38 years and it's the best one I've ever worked in. Have you ever worked in one that didn't sometimes make...

  25. Please provide insight into nationalized health care.
    You may be right. Our facility will get a big increase in their budget and build offices for more bureaucrats. Meanwhile their MRI machine has been down for over a year. Maybe in Houston there are...
