  2. Patient shoots Case Worker + Doctor who pulls out own weapon, prevents masacre
    Oh for sure! I absolutely do not see one's position as a psychiatrist and even a little indicative as to one's mental health. Obviously I know nothing more about this Silverman guy than what is...

  6. Patient shoots Case Worker + Doctor who pulls out own weapon, prevents masacre
    According to the story unarmed people where able to subdue him AFTER he was shot 3 times and on the ground. Not quite the same thing as unarmed people facing an armed murder standing on his feet. ...

  7. Patient shoots Case Worker + Doctor who pulls out own weapon, prevents masacre
    The evidence that what you are saying is highly unlikely is all of the recent shooting where the shooter did not face an armed potential victim and the death count was so much higher.

  8. Patient shoots Case Worker + Doctor who pulls out own weapon, prevents masacre
    Its my understanding that the physician was not a law breaker, mearly a breaker of company policy. Thus at most would face losing his job as a result of having the gun.

    FWIW I work with a former deputy sheriff who at age 63 is still working 80 hours a PP. He has mentioned several times how much he regrets not staying with LE until he was eligible for a pension, in...

  11. And this is why I hate floating to stepdown...
    I don't recognize med-surg and tele being different units. All of our med-surg wards are tele wards. Our step down is either 1:2 or 1:3 depending on the type of patients. At any one time about half...

  13. And this is why I hate floating to stepdown...
    Sure but I don't consider a dilt gtt to be a step down level drip. In most of the places I have worked dilt was a regular med-surg floor drip and certainly no reason to transfer a patient to step...

    If true then it demonstrates a failing in their education. Good point. Two things. First lets admit that any hospital still on their "Journey to Magnet" is probably a dump. Besides...

    I respect your opinion, however my observation is that it has had the opposite effect. I have seen things and heard comments that lead to believe that the DNP makes us the laughing stock in health...

  17. All these NPs making less than RNs?
    Why should an NP with a DNP ever expect to make more than any other NP? Do they have an expanded scope of practice? Do they receive a higher reimbursement for their services than NPs with MSNs? Are...

  18. Nurses are Not Doctors
    Fist it is very condescending to explain the obvious to people who are already in the know. Despite all of the above being true, that is no guarantee that the physician who sees you in the clinic or...

    I would consider any "stepdown" that lacked monitors and the ability to transduce pressure lines or handle drips to be incorrectly named.

  20. And this is why I hate floating to stepdown...
    Stepdown needs monitors at the bedside. How else can they possibly tranduce the art lines, monitor CVP, and titrate drips like dopamine and dilt? If they aren't doing any of those things how can...
