  1. Are you a nurse with "alternative" spiritual beliefs?
    Re that first point, I see a difference between religious faith and religiosity. So you're both right, just talking about two different things.

  3. Sharing faith at work
    Pobrecito! The OP self-identified as a person of faith and asked for advice on how to go about the whole business of prayer on the job. S/he did NOT ask whether faith is valid. So, along comes...

  4. Do you believe that socioeconomics and educations are biggest factors?
    Oh, look! Another one.

  6. Do you believe that socioeconomics and educations are biggest factors?
    OP, have you considered the effects of confirmation bias?

  7. Atheist at Catholic hospital
    I agree totally. That works both ways, though.

  8. Atheist at Catholic hospital
    @ red kryptonite: the dynamic I was talking about is commonly known as mobbing - a kind of group bullying. It was something I mentioned to explain my own hyper-vigilance. It doesn't seem relevant...

    Never worked in a catholic hospital - other settings, same dynamic.

  10. Atheist at Catholic hospital
    You guys are probably right. Having seen and heard about anti-gay witch-hunts, I tend to be very cautious. I'd love to hear from the OP again to find out what conditions at the bedside are really...

  11. Atheist at Catholic hospital
    It's hard for non-Christians to keep up with all the different groups - she may have mis-identified the denomination. I agree that the OP needs to become a competent nurse before she starts...

  12. Atheist at Catholic hospital
    Rut-roh! If the expectation of ministry is explicitly spelled out in their handbook and policies, then you may be poop out of luck. If they make it clear in writing that all employees must be...

  13. Too good for poo
    The problem is, the OP is not the poo-averse nurse's supervisor. She has no business disciplining someone that doesn't even work with her. Especially when the only evidence she can present is gossip....

  14. Problems at work. Need advice!
    I, too, am glad that you're doing some investigating. Sudden or rapid cognitive changes make me very suspicious. I would love to know how it all turns out, if you're willing to share it here. Good...

  15. Sharing faith at work
    Not my bible, sweetie. Check your assumptions ... Most of them are pretty questionable. As are the ideas of thousand year old people and talking bushes. Anyway, nasty is as nasty does. You've...

  16. Sharing faith at work
    Whoa, Nellie! The efficacy of prayer wasn't the question in the OP, if I remember correctly. Personally, I find the arguments of militant atheists to be both illogical and laughable. On this...

  17. Problems at work. Need advice!
    A complete physical seems in order - those short-term memory issues didn't just pop up out of nowhere for no reason. How's your thyroid? Have you ever had Lyme Disease? You get the idea ...

  18. Difficult family member
    My comment was a purely theoretical speculation, wondering if a larger lumen g-tube would have helped to solve some problems. Like I said, there's nothing strictly abusive about using real food...

  19. Difficult family member
    I gotta wonder if the daughter's practice was influenced by cost issues ... was she caring for the pt without formal home care for any length of time? All the issues seem to reflect a preference for...

  20. Lessons on why not to "Assume" things.
    That's right, BuckyBadger. And that's why the OP should at least consider hiring a lawyer, especially if her only malpractice coverage is through her employer. If those questions get asked, the...

  21. Lessons on why not to "Assume" things.
    A good question for your legal department. If the resident is still in the hospital, then you are not directly involved in her care and will not be until she returns to your facility ... if she...

  22. patients on methadone plus PRN pain meds
    I don't wait - completely different onset and peak times. You need to do it the old-fashioned way: dose then evaluate in a timely fashion. It is amazingly difficult to suppress respers in people who...

  24. Lessons on why not to "Assume" things.
    Lawsuits rarely have anything to do with doing the right thing. If those higher up in the food chain can nail the OP for their carelessness, they're going to do it. Of course, the OP knows more about...

  25. Lessons on why not to "Assume" things.
    Because if the death or harm suffered by her resident turns out to be a failure to rescue, the facility, its staff and the MDs writing the orders are likely to get sued, especially if the family was...
