  2. How to handle a verbally abusive MD
    I would catch him alone in the parking lot and have a little "talk" with him and teach him some manners. I have done it before and it's highly effective.

    Here are some facts that may make you feel better. ALL milk and dairy products are free of antibiotics. Dairy cattle are NEVER fed antibiotics and only receive them in the case of an illness and then...

  7. ANA wants GM foods labeled, please join effort ant tell FDA
    No, doesn't change that particular fact. I am only making the point that Europe's decision to ban their import only tells us one thing and should not used as any sort of indicator of safety or lack...

  11. ANA wants GM foods labeled, please join effort ant tell FDA
    True but that tells us nothing. Europe is ALWAYS looking for the slightest excuse to reduce or eliminate agriculture imports from the USA. It s a huge sore point for them. If you think Europe's...

  12. Has anyone made a medication error and *not* get fired for it?
    Having worked in a dozen different hospitals in 4 states and two contries I have had to use a number of them. I haven't used all of them so I can't say. A freind of mine who is co-owner of a tech...

  13. Has anyone made a medication error and *not* get fired for it?
    My experience is that the oppisit happens. Computer charting takes so much longer, and is so much more work, and requires so much more concentration than our old tri-folds that the nurse has much...

  15. Big pay cut at Orlando Health, please help your fellow Nurses
    Nothing I have ever seen indicates that BSN as entry to practice is remotely interesting to the ANA. They are all about getting revenge.

  16. Big pay cut at Orlando Health, please help your fellow Nurses
    We could have BSN as entry to practice long ago IMO if nursing had taken the well trodden path that respiratory therapy is now taking. Such a common sense and established path isn't good...

    It's really no surprise that its NJ & NY who are the first to (over) react in a cowardly fashion. Apparently being a nurse is grounds to be kidnapped. If I were in her shoes I would attempt to...
