  1. When Does Life Begin? The Scientific Definition of an Abortifacient ...
    The SCOTUS very clearly ruled that they do not consider these four drugs to be abortifacient or that such an argument can even be made. The ACA specifically prohibits abortifacients from being...

  2. When Does Life Begin? The Scientific Definition of an Abortifacient ...
    There isn't actually any evidence in that video to suggest these four drugs are abortifacients. She does refer to what was not ruled out in these drugs' FDA trials, which is the extent of their...

  3. When Does Life Begin? The Scientific Definition of an Abortifacient ...
    I'm not sure where you got the idea that the FDA "labels" these four drugs as abortifacients, maybe you could point me to a source. Are you under the impression that the SCOTUS agreed these four...

  4. And this is why I hate floating to stepdown...
    I would think that referred to what's called "medical tele" at facilities I've worked at, it's regular medical floor ratios but with patients on cardiac telemetry. At my facility diltiazem and...

  5. And this is why I hate floating to stepdown...
    I've worked at one facility where the 'order' went ICU-stepdown-progressive care-medical tele, and another where it went ICU-progressive care-stepdown-medical tele, so I don't think it's all that...

  6. And this is why I hate floating to stepdown...
    Did you mean that the other way around; No A-lines outside of ICU and CVP's on ICU and stepdown?

  7. Verbal Read-back
    The Joint Commission actively encourages certain practices, but they aren't regulations or laws just because it's a JC rule since it's not a government agency or a group who otherwise has the ability...

  8. What to do: ED physician brought dog to work
    My facility allows patient's pets to visit, just like any other visitor they are expected to be well behaved. I think people often falsely assume dogs are a health hazard, which there really isn't...

  9. Transducer Placement?
    I'm curious how those who tape or clamp the transducer to the patient deal with turning a patient. Do you just not turn patients? Do you only read the CVP when they are flat on their back?

  10. "Floating" IV
    I don't really get what the concern is with 'floating in' and IV, it would seem the concern should be with not floating in an IV in hypovolemic patient. Advancing the catheter in a collapsed or near...

  11. And this is why I hate floating to stepdown...
    "stepdown" is a surprisingly inexact term. I've never worked anywhere that allowed A-lines as a stepdown patient. I've worked in a couple places where stepdown only referred to nursing acuity, not...

    Maybe you could point them out to me because I can't find them in that post. If you're referring to these: The problem with giving people the freedom to NOT have insurance is that those who...

  13. Obamacare and Nursing.. what do you think?
    You believe that the government is "regulating" the prices that private insurers are charging? There are not government run Obamacare plans, they are still offered by private insurers and really none...

    Sorry to be odd man out, but I don't get the hub-bub. I only expect the tele tech to notify me of something that is new, or that is recurrent but more urgent than just increased V-ectopy while...

  16. PPM Question
    I've never seen an external pacemaker that could be set up to do that, and for good reason. I suppose you could sort of rig up something using two different pacemakers in the case of complete heart...

  17. Obamacare and Nursing.. what do you think?
    Since Obamacare deals primarily with how we pay for healthcare, not how it's delivered, it shouldn't be too surprising that if that discussion quickly turns into general health insurance debate,...

  18. Obamacare and Nursing.. what do you think?
    With a penalty of only $95 this year I don't think there was an expectation that very many young people would sign up this year, it likely won't be until 2016 when the penalty is $695 when there's...

  20. Obamacare and Nursing.. what do you think?
    I agree with his argument, which is basically "My idea was hardly new. Heritage did not invent the individual mandate." Heritage most likely wasn't the first to advocate for a mandate to buy health...

  23. Obamacare and Nursing.. what do you think?
    I'd agree with you that the ACA is "fatally flawed" being that it relies on our already existing system which attempts (poorly) to reverse engineer a system that's designed to exclude people into a...
