  12. Swine Flu and Emergency Nursing
    People reacted the same way with the "bird flu" a few years back (or was that more recent?). I, too, get tired of hearing the media blow everything out of proportion. It should be taken seriously,...

  15. "Octomom" and continuing updates
    A show about her and her kids for the next 18 years? BOH-RING. I yawn already at the very thought. There's already enough shows on TV about families with multiples (which I don't understand the...

  16. Question about Med/Surg...
    I work a Med/Surg unit. We are medical and surgical combined. I would assume if it's written as "med/surg" on a job listing, then it is a combined unit as well.

  20. Yelling Doctors, How do you handle them?????
    The OP stated that calling is her facility's policy, so I don't think it was very kind of you to call her rude and inappropriate. If that is the policy, then she is wise in following it. They don't...
