i really :heartbeatappreciate your pointing the other side of the issue, also, and it is a quagmire from almost any direction you look.
may i also add that i see your side, and if ever i could support a termination it would be in cases like this. i have to answer to my conscience, and you to yours. speaking for myself alone, there would be very little abortion backlash if they were performed for only serious medical reasons. the "abortion as contraception" viewpoint is abhorent to most people i know, even those who i love who are pro-choice.
thank you again for being so clear and non-confrontational on this hot button issue, which touches at the core of the value of human life and the best way to support that ideal. a respectful salute from the other side of the fence...
i somewhat have to disagree with this. i think customer service is the backbone of nursing. i think its every nurses job to attempt to portray a positive image of themselves professionally as well as the facility they work for. often times patients have a choice in which hospital they stay, and you should want it to be yours.
now it goes without saying that sometimes things don't always go as planned, and some patients will always expect too much. but i think we should all strive for the best customer service possible. its good for you, if gives the patient confidence in you and your hospital, and it does not require much more effort.
true...a spoiled rotten dog and a spoiled rotten cat who thinks he's a dog.

interesting question, but i don't think anecdotal experiences (as many as there may be) prove that any such place exists.

in va, they can give insulin, use epi pens, and yes, give narcotics and psychotrophics...:angryfire
check with the texas bon...i am getting ready to teach a class here in va, and med aides can only work in alf's (not snf's or hospice), group homes, and adult day care.
each state has wildly different rules on this, so check before you spend time and money on this..
kiwi and blue ridge, i have no idea what you're arguing about. you agree.
I hope you don't mind if I clarify this point, but I'd hate people to get the wrong idea -- direct termination of pregnancy is never permitted, but in some circumstances posing imminent physical danger to the mother, it is morally permissible to treat her even though the likelihood is that the baby will die as a result of the treatment. The exact circumstances when that approach should be taken are debated by moral theologians. [/SIZE]
one little event that made my life worth living again..."tah/bso"
