sorry, i have switched over to the congressional record. go find a little friend to play with, dear...
my husband says he'd just once like to hold hands without my taking his pulse, .....or.....tell me his back hurts without me asking him to rate the pain, decribe what makes it better/worse, and throwing ice packs on him while shoveling advil down his throat.
per the cdc, vets are more heavily colonized than human healthcare personnel, but are rarely infected or symptomatic.
at this point, pandora is out of the box, and we can only hope that doctors, especially pediatric docs, have enough backbone to stop handing out antibiotics and slow the progression of yet more and "badder" resistant bacteria that may make mrsa look like a rhinovirus.
..and how many people wearing scrubs are nurses?? around here, its also techs, vets, vet techs, day care workers, cna's, ma's..etc. they are also popular gardening gear here in the warmer months.
if a new yorker is worried about germs, i can think of a bunch of demographics that i'd be more concerned about than health care professionals.
really? what evidence is there that indicates that a rn that passed the nclex on the first try will be a better nurse than a rn that took several attempts to pass?
gee, i don't know. how many tries did you need?
i'm disgusted. this plan - it won't work; it'll cause the very problem it's supposed to avoid..
you're comment is rude
the day caring more about someone's tender "feelings" is more important than patient safety and quality of care is the day i retire.
do you think you're a better nurse because you passed the nclex on the first try?
see what you forget is that the nurse who passed on the "ninth try" still has rn after his/her name just like you do.
i'm not interested in being "in that person's shoes..". i am interested in the patient lying in the bed being cared for by miss or mr. passed-on-the-ninth-try, rn.
. but posting your disdain should not be grounds for being banned. wouldn't that be just childish on a professional nursing forum!
if al gore had been elected, the country would be much better off............oh wait a minute, al gore was elected :wink2:
i can only applaud any means employed to increase knowledge in entry level programs. i continue to be taken aback by the shear number of threads about flunking the nclex multiple times! good grief!!! i graduated in 1991 and only one person in our class failed boards....and she wasn''t very bright or organized. what has happened that allows all these people to graduate without basic nursing knowledge??
i've posted the regulations for homecare at top of forum...please start reading if you plan to follow through with this position.[/quote]
actually, many of us are running successful agencies without any input from you. cms is quite clear in their expectations, and i find your attitude to the op demeaning and unhelpful.
love the atomosphere on nights, but can't do it physically. nights literally almost killed me, but i'm a bed by 9 up at 5 sorta farmer's hours person. depends on your biological clock..
