  1. General Site Layout is Clumsy
    On my iPad I access through Safari because the app is awful. If all I have is my iPhone, I abstain. It's not worth the frustration!

  2. General Site Layout is Clumsy
    I agree with the OP. It is difficult to find things. And if you use it on laptop and iPad, expect more challenges. Just wait until something changes, though. Then it is like another whole...

  3. I Wasn't Called to Nursing, I Just Showed Up.
    Thanks! That is what happened to me also. I am the eldest of three girls, born 1949-1953. The middle sister was indeed "called" into nursing.....actually she wanted to be veterinarian, but was...

  4. Step pay effect on older nurses getting hired?
    How sad that the older nurses' experience is last on this list does the older nurses' experience and knowledge and memory of how things can be done without a computer come into play. When the...

  5. No worries USA.  Only healthcare workers will be exposed to ebola.
    I am always amazed at how much stuff has been done, to extreme degrees of expertise, by some folks. And that important and selfless thing? :sarcastic:

    yes, some hospitals put L and D and NICU in places they have never worked...it is called floating....and where I worked it was not safe formthe patients or the nurses' licenses.

  7. No worries USA.  Only healthcare workers will be exposed to ebola.
    This could be because in most of our lifetimes, due to the availability and use of preventative vaccines in our country, seriously infectious and deadly diseases have been mostly eradicated.

  8. Patient shoots Case Worker + Doctor who pulls out own weapon, prevents masacre
    And that ammo supply problem hasn't diminished one little bit. Ammo sales are limited in stores because of supply and demand. Even shot is hard to come by, and the price has tripled in the last 6...

  9. Patient shoots Case Worker + Doctor who pulls out own weapon, prevents masacre
    So, fewer guns held by law-abiding citizens makes it more difficult for those who don't abide by the law to steal and then use them for murder? Okay, then....... Once again, the law-abiding...

  10. In at 6:30, out at 9:00 and not a drop of food. I love this job!
    Aside from all the good advice offered, I would say your charge nurse or supervisor needs to be involved.....going that long without a meal break (and probably potty breaks, too) is unacceptable.

    The gun control people have a difficult time understanding this concept.

    We should outlaw psychotics and their physicians.....and molotov cocktails, because you can utilize them in a drive-by fashion.

  14. Patient shoots Case Worker + Doctor who pulls out own weapon, prevents masacre
    I think it is important to note that more than several shootings and/or robberies have recently occurred in "gun-free zones." And some just days after the signs went up. I mean, really, if an...

    And thankfully, he did. If intelligent minds prevail, that he had a firearm (in violation of a stupid rule) will be overlooked.

  17. Joint Commission is a Joke...
    And that, too, can be a joke. Where I used to work, we had to do yearly "competencies." These consisted of watching stuff on the computer and answering questions afterward. Being an OB nurse,...

    I believe you are correct, however, the hospital is required to have JC come in, and then also required to pay them. JC wins. And IMHO, JC is the perfect example of changes that have to be found...

  19. Joint Commission is a Joke...
    The OP said no "saline locks" in the pocket. That, to me, is different from "saline flush." However, when flushes, locks alcohol pads, and the list goes on and on, have to be locked up somewhere,...

  22. Still don't get the BSN ADN thing...
    Speaking of "fluff" classes....ASU now offers a one-credit class for women (of course.....who seemingly fall for such silliness) if they forego shaving their underarms for a set period of time.

    I did 3:50p to 12:20a 8-hour shifts when my kids were young, as a single parent. And I loved it. I found responsible teens to babysit some of the time, and then found a woman with teens of her own,...
