  2. To medicate or not to medicate

  4. Any thoughts of USA infant mortality rate
    I know, I feel very fortunate. I'm a PACU and anesthesia nurse so this isn't my area of expertise at all but from what I know there aren't many drugs routinely prescribed to pregnant women....

    Well, I'm a Swedish nurse and the most recent stats for infant mortality rate I've found are from 2013. The mortality rate for infants under one year old was 2.6 per 1000 live births. All infants...

  6. When do going back to school STOP!!
    (my bold) My first thought when reading your question "when does this stop?" was, hopefully never. Like other posters have mentioned, the nursing and medical fields are constantly evolving. As...

  7. Please Help
    At first I thought that you were saying that you aren't very good at witnessing med wastes (dealing with narcassists) but when I read the rest of your post/vent it became somewhat more clear. (I'm...

  10. Sex, Porn & Roto-Prone Beds.....
    I see your point OP. But my thoughts on the matter is that no one can really monopolize the forum without "our" willing cooperation. When we keep replying to threads we keep them alive. We choose if...

  11. What is your strange bed story?
    I can't say I share your fascination with specialty beds and I can't think of a single funny story involving one. OP, I'll be blunt. Reading this thread and others you've started recently makes...

    (my bold) I'm not sure what double standard you're talking about. Prosecution normally follows the commission of a criminal act. A crime is normally what it takes to be prosecuted, I've never...

  13. I've got a question about pain control
    Why does the patient have to have the Enoxaparin injected into the affected leg of all places? I don't work ortho, but making sure that patient's pain is adequately treated is something I do...

    I can understand that. I think that some of the more tough or even harsh responses are mainly down to two things. First of all many forum members, myself included, are suspicious of new posters who...

    This is where our experiences differ. I'm surprised that you say that it's always the girls getting hurt. The head injuries and ICU stays that you mentioned, were they really all girls? You see,...

    I can only speak for myself. What you're seeing is not a lack of compassion. I'm not even sure where that came from? I'm wondering about the nature of your posts, that's what's making me ask many...

    It's the same in my country. But was isn't legal is for a eighteen-year-old to give alcohol to a sixteen-year-old. Where did the girls get the alcohol from? By the way, did your scenario take place...
