  1. Justify this nursing diagnosis
    I'm a Swedish nurse. If I remember correctly that particular diagnosis doesn't exist in the Swedish translation. In my opinion it's hardly a scientifically sound diagnosis, so I can't say that I...

  2. My favorite med:
    I don't really have a favorite medication, it's basically whatever helps my patient the best with the problem they're experiencing at the moment. Certainly a lot of analgesics and PONV meds. I...

  3. My coworker is stealing
    Management will take notice and act if this keeps happening. Personally I'd let them worry about it and not let it bother me. I don't see anything good coming from meddling in it. After all, this is...

    Well, I'm going to join this little debate with all the arrogance someone who speaks English as a fourth language, can muster ;) I actually interpreted your statement "Even if BSN does provide a...

  5. Have you travelled to Africa is a invasion of privacy?
    I don't think that asking if a patient has travelled recently is an invasion of privacy, but I do agree with KelRN that "Have you travelled to Africa" recently is the wrong question. Africa is a huge...

  6. CDC rec to counsel all males about benefits of circumcision
    You really didn't have to dig up some research, I was joking you know :) I think that your example here is rather apples and oranges. Even if you can find some gender specific characteristics,...

    You have OPINIONS (horror of horrors!)? I'd like to see peer-reviewed scientific research or your opinion doesn't count ;) Seriously though.. Men = rational. Women = emotional :sarcastic: What a...

    I can only speak for myself, but I'll answer your question as best I can. I am passionate about many human rights issue and yes, I believe that the circumcision of infants fall into that category. ...

    (My bold) Good grief. I never claimed that anti-semitism never played a part in cultural influences in my country or in any country in Europe. (One would have to be completely ignorant regarding...

  11. CDC rec to counsel all males about benefits of circumcision
    I'll give it a try. This is my main concern, in fact it's the entire basis for my objection to circumcisions of male infants. I said in my very first post in this thread "if a grown-up man...

  12. CDC rec to counsel all males about benefits of circumcision
    It is thought by many? I wonder why you brought this up? To me it begs the question, are you one of the many? I can only speak confidently about my own country and our neighbors, the rest of...

  13. CDC rec to counsel all males about benefits of circumcision
    I know I said that I was done... but this I can not resist :lol2: I am as most have realized against circumcision of male infants. Since this is the case one might perhaps assume that I'd be...

  14. CDC rec to counsel all males about benefits of circumcision
    You could just as easily have worded that as a question, instead of assuming that I make "one-sided" decisions. "Have you read the commentary from the AAP?" would have worked just fine. You don't...

  15. CDC rec to counsel all males about benefits of circumcision
    I definitely am. Pierced ears aren't a medical necessity, the child can decide when she or he gets old enough if they want pierced ears. I'm also against parents who have their children tattooed...

  18. CDC rec to counsel all males about benefits of circumcision
    I actually am in the pro-choice group, it's just that I think that it's a decision that should be made by the individuals themselves when they're adults. I don't view children as appendages of...

    (bold mine) This is slightly frustrating. How can you read my post and conclude that I think that I have the right to make the decision? I do NOT have the right to make decisions about another...

  20. CDC rec to counsel all males about benefits of circumcision
    I don't understand the point you're making. This is about men and women (a.k.a. parents) making decisions about someone else's genitalia (namely minors). Why shouldn't men AND women be able to...

  22. CDC rec to counsel all males about benefits of circumcision

    What other healthy parts of an infant's body would we find it acceptable for parents to decide to have surgically removed? I personally find the practice barbaric :( If a man grown-up man...
