  1. Nina Pham and/or Amber Vinson
    Surely you can see that a thread for get well wishes is not the place to air your opinions about the wisdom of the actions of either nurse.

  2. God Hates Nurses Now
    I was sitting in the waiting room of my oncologist's office, about an hour into the wait, when I got restless and got up to ask how much longer Dr. "FamousCancersurgeon" would be. "Oh," was the...

  3. Amber Vinson has obtained a high power attorney
    As much vitriol towards Amber as we've seen on THIS forum, I can only imagine what the rest of the world is saying about her. Hiring an attorney is probably a fabulous idea. And then there's the...

  4. No call No show but
    Why the bizarre formatting? It makes your story more difficult to read. It doesn't matter what disciplinary actions other folks received for no call/no show. If there is disciplinary action, you...

  5. When A Nurse Needs A Doctor.....
    I've always had a strict policy against being naked where I work. But when I got breast cancer two years ago, I wanted to be treated at the local cancer center, and that meant my hospital. My...

  6. Appropriate reaction to rude behavior?
    If you go looking for something, you're sure to find it. If you don't go looking for rudeness, you're likely to not find very much of it. The rare rudeness you do fine can be addressed much the...

  7. Nina Pham and/or Amber Vinson
    The person being defensive is you. I wasn't being defensive; I thought you were being judgemental and wrong, and I said so. I now think you're defensive, judgemental, and wrong.

  8. Nina Pham and/or Amber Vinson
    These two nurses are fighting for their lives after their employer and the CDC failed them. And THIS is what you wish them to read right now? Not only are you wrong, but you're being incredibly...

    i'm so happy for you with your perfect, 20/20 hindsight. How can you be so much smarter than all the experts at the CDC?

  10. Nina Pham and/or Amber Vinson
    No one who is concerned as to whether they could possibly be infected or might be spreading a virus should consult an expert about whether or not they should fly, quarantine themselves or check into...

  12. Second ebola nurse "okay'd" to fly
    After hanging around allnurses for all these years, I guess I shouldn't be shocked to see our membership leaping on the media bandwagon of "Let's Lynch The Nurse," but it still saddens me. When...

  13. *rolling my eyes*
    The public and the media are rushing to vilify the nurse. The hospital is blaming the nurse for "breaking protocol" when it is now clear that there not only WAS no protocol, but that the PPE they...

  15. Is it fair for the media to blame the RN in Texas for contracting Ebola?
    Why should the nurse who contracted a potentially fatal illness while caring for a patient using inadequate PPE face charges? The CDC TOLD her she could get on that plane. They're supposed to be...

  16. Is it fair for the media to blame the RN in Texas for contracting Ebola?
    Don't blame the nurse; blame the genius at the CDC who told her it was OK to fly.

  20. Miss Manners for Nurses
    Honey is bee excrement . . . so whenever I call someone "honey" it's because it's politically incorrect to label them a (bad word meaning poop)head.

    As I recall, health care workers could be drafted up to age 44. Now, we have an all-volunteer military, but it probably wouldn't take long to push legislation through Congress allowing health care...

  22. Media a bit too invasive of nurse's personal info following her catching Ebola?
    A nurse does not need a CCRN to care for critically ill patients . . . . It's a nice thing to do, particularly in this day and age when jobs are more difficult to come by. But in 38 years, I never...

    Don't blame the journalist -- blame the "close personal friend" who gave him all that personal information. And the "news organization" that published it. But yes, I think there's a lot too...
