  1. LTC facility trying to fire me over refusing to take on 50 residents
    It's not abandonment. And you would do well to QUIT THIS DUMP *before* they fire YOU.

  3. Abuse swept under the rug
    I would look up (google) your state health department website. There, you will find the means to make out a written report, or a number to call to lodge complaints. Be sure to be specific with...

  4. period during pregnancy?
    It IS possible, although rare. I have met quite a few women who experienced monthly bleeding like a period throughout their pregnancies. I suppose ANYthing is possible.

  5. A Word To The Wise.........
    Someone hit on it already. The more you engage, the worse it will get. If you are frustrated by the OP, my best advice is to ignore him. At some point their steam will run out and you will save ...

  8. Not a Nurse???
    I am sorry but I don't really appreciate threads like this at all. They really have nothing to do with dialysis nursing, but rants about things we cannot fix or advise on. Perhaps a blog would be a...

  9. Why Do Not More Clinics Push Home Dialysis?
    I think we covered "why" already in several posts. Most of our patients prefer IN-CENTER dialysis. Again, if they choose not, despite being educated, what would you have us do? We even go as far as...

  10. Why Do Not More Clinics Push Home Dialysis?
    The gov't needs to mind its own business, but as long as big payouts for Medicare are involved, you can bet your last dollar it won't happen. That is the real reason home hemo/PD are "the wave of the...

  11. RN-MSN at WGU... Help!
    I find it very interesting that someone says "go somewhere else" without a word to support that piece of advice. Actually, such posts are like drive-by's. At least support such an opinion, as some...

  13. Why do people don't like it when we send resident out?
    You did the right thing>follow your gut, not "old" nurses' reactions. You did right by your resident; feel good about that.

    Too much, too soon. Not even a year's experience. I would strongly advise you turn to your most experienced LPN/RNs, as well as CNA's (they are invaluable and know the residents imtimately)--- and...

  16. Why is LTC so hated
    One more thing: the pay was horrible. Worked harder and with so much heart to get 18.00 an hour, compared to 40.00 plus in the hospital. It's as if nurses/staff at LTC are not worth much, which is...

  17. Why is LTC so hated
    Having worked LTC, the main reason I can think of why it's "so hated" is because the nurse-resident ratios are ridiculous and unmanageable. LTCs are all for-profit businesses and they cut staffing to...

  20. Mom jailed for refusing to feed her infant proper formula
    Education is key. She must learn that depriving the baby of formula or breastmilk will kill him. Once that is documented, if she complies, no problem. If not, then the kid should be removed from her...

  22. Intrusiveness and unwanted touching of pregnant bellies
    Just ask that they not do that. It's that simple. No one means offense or harm; they are just not thinking. It's easy enough to ask they not touch your belly.
