  2. Nurses as Costs for Hospitals
    You seem confused as to the reasoning you want to stick with for ICU nurses being paid more. Perhaps you are the one with your knickers wound up a little too tight. At the risk of wasting my...

  3. Nurses as Costs for Hospitals
    I don't believe that was your point the first time around. Let me remind you of one of your quotes: "Areas of nursing like critical care should have a higher pay scale than med surge. Sorry folks....

  4. Should Nurses know procedural costs?
    Please do make the argument that I somehow I am not interested in being the patient's nurse if I'm not interested in figuring out what their care is costing. I'm interested in the logic behind...

  6. Photo on your résumé?
    I've thought about doing this myself. Not because I'm super-attractive, but because I believe I look like a friendly and pleasant. I kinda laugh at the "looks don't matter" and "I wouldn't want...

  7. I heard today on the radio
    That is correct. We are talking about a chain email in this instance. I don't think any of the people you mentioned would present a chain email, that is easily proved to be incorrect, as fact.

  8. I heard today on the radio
    Then why don't you share those? I did as you said, and found two references to obscure radio shows from 2-3 years ago.

  9. I heard today on the radio
    No, sorry. I was trying to make a point that if others can blame conservative talk shows for this misinformation, one could just as easily blame a progressive show. I didn't actually hear it...

  10. I heard today on the radio
    Do you listen to a lot of those guys, do you? Who said it was a topic on a conservative talk show? All the OP said was they "heard it on the radio". For all we know, it was a ill-informed AM...

  12. Newly hired nurse
    I've done this, and it wasn't a problem. Although, I told the manager after I was hired but before I started working and before they made a schedule for me. And, I offered to reschedule my vacation...

  14. Healthcare deductables
    How condescending. What does being a CNA vs RN have to do with anything. A vast majorty of RN's I know don't pay enough attention to have an educated opinion on the healthcare issue one way or...

  15. Why can't hospitals do better?
    Actually, the behavior of many patients does drive up the costs of medical care. The federal gov't can't run out of money? There is some truth to that I suppose. But I find it frightening that...

  16. PRN hours decreased because of the ACA
    I am no fan of the ACA. In fact, you can find pages of my posts that would indicate the opposite. That being said... Most employers, healthcare and otherwise, don't pay a higher rate for those...

  17. Obamacare and hospitals
    I stated that I believe that I can make better decisions about how my healthcare dollars are spent then the gov't can for me. So, how does that equate to me obviously believing that health insurance...

  18. Obamacare and hospitals
    So, we agree. Medicare Advantage costs more not because it is run by private business, but because it is a product of politicians and health insurance companies scratching each others' backs at the...

  20. Obamacare and hospitals
    Your not getting it. The complaints are bogus. You might want to ponder the notion that perhaps medicare overpayments have more to do with political favors then economics.

    I believe we have covered that. The government overpays the insurance companies for medicare advantage.

    And for every article you find that says Medicare is more efficient, I find another one that says it is not. It's not so much the numbers are that much different, it's the interpretation of how...

    Yes, republicans often use the "how are you can to pay for it?" when it works to their advantage. The reality is, I'm sure you know, that congress (both sides) always finds the money (borrows,...

    Yes, that is my point. Why would we trust those evil republicans, and even the god-sent democrats, to run a cost-effective, efficient, and non-corrupt Medicare for all? As for most of everything...
