  1. Ebola in Texas
    I received my Nurse.com magazine in the mail today. Of note is an article about a nurse who found that putting on and taking off all that protective gear isn't that easy "in an intensive 10 day...

  3. Ebola in Texas
    Wish I knew the source, or could remember it, but the Republicans actually voted to give Obama more than he requested for the CDC. And of course, over 90% of their budget goes for stuff that has...

  4. Ebola in Texas
    And that is a great question. Our yearly "competencies" were computer based things with a 30-45 minute presentation to watch and then the test. The challenge was to take the test without ever...

  5. Ebola in Texas
    Right, but if someone is living there, perhaps they would be in situations in their life outside work where they might be esposed. After I posted that, I saw where they say he might have been...

  6. Ebola in Texas
    I think the cameraman has lived there for 3 years, so it is possible he was exposed in some way other than his work.

  7. Ebola in Texas
    Thanks for that information. With that, it begs the question, for me, as to why Dr. Nancy Snyderman and her crew will be going into isolation for 21 days. Unless they all had broken skin/mucous...

  8. Ebola in Texas
    I am still unclear about how one gets infected with Ebola....can one get infected from simply being in contact the the bodily fluids of one who is infected? Do the bodily fluids from one infected...

  9. Ebola in Texas
    The Red Cross is supplying the family with food. They refused to quarantine themselves, as I understand it, and therefore, the legal order for them to stay inside. It may seem harsh, but I feel a...

  10. Ebola in Texas
    A photographer for NBC has tested positive now and he will be flown back to the US. Dr. Nancy Snyderman and her team (of which the camera man was part) are being flown back too, and will be in...

  12. 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!

  13. 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...

  14. 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...

  15. 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...

  16. 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:

  18. 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.

  19. 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...

  20. 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...

  21. 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.

  23. Patient shoots Case Worker + Doctor who pulls out own weapon, prevents masacre
    We should outlaw psychotics and their physicians.....and molotov cocktails, because you can utilize them in a drive-by fashion.

  25. 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...
