  3. Voluntary Euthanasia
    I was originally opposed to the "Death with Dignity" act in my state because in my mind it implied that patients who needed care and were gravely disabled or ill were somehow lacking "dignity". The...

  5. I Lost All Respect For A Colleague Today
    I don't think ones sexual indiscretions are an indicator of how they'll perform their duties at work. It's a bit of a stretch to jump from adultery to lying about med errors. Humans are complex and...

  6. Ever work with people who talk about church all the time?
    I used to work with this one nurse who was super religious. I didn't care but then she started talking about how gay people are going to hell, etc, etc and as a gay person it made me pretty...

  7. The Docs Who've Got Your Back
    I love most of the docs I work with and am friends with a few outside of work. There is always the occasional jerk but they are few and far between. Most are nice and some even bring us donuts. :-)...

  8. What makes a COB crusty?
    I'm curious...to the COB out there; when you had 10+ patients were you able to do hourly rounding? Because I can't imagine; my max is 5 patients and that can be hard at times.

  10. On Negative Feedback
    No one gives me as harsh criticism as I give myself. I am painfully aware of my faults and tend to beat myself up a lot. I recently got a good review and was surprised; I had gone into the manager's...

  11. Still Reeling From This
    The patient had expressed not wanting invasive treatments during their stay. I was not emotionally involved in the sense of really liking this person; actually they were probably one of the rudest,...

    Also, for the record I am not one to demonize doctors. My spouse is one and about half of my social circle is comprised of them. I know they face decisions that I don't have to deal with. I know they...

  14. Still Reeling From This
    Susie, you make valid points and trust me when I say, I would have supported the MD's decision if I hadn't known from several days with this patient that beyond a shadow of a doubt, they did not want...

    Fellow nurses, I recently was involved in a case where I feel that there was a terrible breach of ethics and it still has me upset. I will be vague to protect the privacy of those involved; there is...

    This whole thing is so depressing. I can't imagine being the nurse to care for this unfortunate young lady...what do you even say to a family who is completely in denial? It's bad enough when you...

  23. Sure to Get Flamed for This
    This whole argument is so old. New nurses are sensitive babies and old nurses are bullies. The profession is truly in trouble if this topic has to be beaten into the ground every other day. :banghead:

  24. Horrible experience with IV push Furosemide, any insight is appreciated
    Oh my gosh, seriously; don't freak out. That is a very small dose of Furosemide and 3 minutes is more than adequate. You did nothing wrong!
