    Mine is not foul proof.. This after noon we colored eggs. I put them in a pot, about 2 dozen.. Then I said "how long ya cook 'em" kids say, "we dunno"... so we just let them boil awhile.. I figured when most of them started to crack, well, maybe they were done... (Humm....) You'd think that after all the years we bioled eggs for Easter I would remember something sooo simple. But, No.. I only cook boiled eggs once a year, and can never rememer how.. Suppose this is how they came up with VERY VERY hard boiled eggs??
    HAPPY EASTER!!!

    Hello Fellow Board Mates......
    It's Easter time again...Funny how the days fly by and before you know it, it's a new month and then a new year. I forgot all about Easter until my little daughter reminded me last weekend... Geez... so easy to get caught up in all the business, and forget the obvious.... Just wanted to wish you all a happy day, on Easter and always!

    I agree.. For the cost it cant be beat.. 80 -90 a year depending on your state, and it is 3million dollar policy, (I have.. 89.00 A yr) Some people think if you have insurance then you are more likely to be sued, as then the lawyers have something to go after..But I would never think that an employer would stand behind me in a lawsuit. I have never been sued, but it is very true that employers will look out for themselves.. and we ought to look out for ourselves as well. There are those annoying drop out cards in all the nursing magazines that offers malpractice insurance. I have www.nso.com and I also have a life insurance plan with them that is real cheap.
    Good luck to you where ever you may land.....

    [B] That scope shoudl be very adaquate for school and many years beyond. Littmann is very good, and the price is reasonable. You can get tubing in any uniform shop, (might need to be ordered) or a nursing supply catalog. There are many... you can even do an internet search. Tubing should be reasonably affordable to change the color. Engraving can be done in any trophy shop, place that makes name tags, plaques, ect. Just check your yellow pages for a listing.
    I love ebay too. I sell TONS of healthcare and vintage items on ebay all the time. If you want a link, email me at excellenceinlearning@rn.com

    The correct response is ideally within 30 minutes of the scheduled time due, one way or the other with a maximum window of one hour one way or the other.

    I found the information on the link as it is posted in a couple of the posts.
    www.cdc.gov and then there is a section I found on flu outbreak within acute and long term facilities. I have now instructed all my staff to not allow the resident out of their room for 5 days if they have had flu like symptoms. No going to activities, therapy, or dining room. This has helped alot. We had 30% of our facility sick with flu. As for the flu shots, CDC is suggesting that the wrong strand was pegged this year, so essentially making is useless to those who got one this year. I believe it will still have some benefit, however it was not projected properly as predicted.

    Has the flu been a problem in your healthcare setting?

    I learned something new last night. ...
    Maybe I heard it before,forgot, or whatever. But I find it very interesting that a person is contagious 1-2 days BEFORE they come down with the flu, and then STILL CONTAGIOUS 5-7 days AFTER the symptoms subside.

    I found this on the CDC website.

    We have had quite a bunch of sick residents in our LTC facility. Seems they go out of their rooms after the 24-48 hour bug, and now we see it's no wonder they are getting ill. Those who appear better are the ones infecting still.

    Just thought I would share!
    Thanks

    Hello Friends:
    I am looking for advice re: several residents with flu symptoms. I have 37 of 155 with flu, and lots of staff who had it as well. Besides the standard infection control inservices on handwashing, ect. ect what else might one suggest?
    Many have had a flu shot who became sick, but we know the flu shot does not prevent the flu anyways. I heard that the flu shot was all wrong this year and is not targetting the strand of flu virus we are up against this year.
    What else can I do here?
    Thanks!

    Ocala, Florida Here.... Hello and Welcome!!!

    I have an answer here. If the school is recognized by the Board of nursing, you can take boards, regardless if accredited or not. Many nursing schools are not accredited by NLN. The problem comes when you want to transfer to another school, like if you earn an ASN and want to get your BSN, then many schools will not accept school work from an unaccredited school... so silly I think, since the school is acceptable to sit for boards, and many schools are not accredited like they once used to be. ( too much red tape I hear to keep up the accrediation status) This does not however, mean you will get any less of a good education. It simply means the school complys with the state and board regulations. They generally do not pay the high fees and go through the strict on site surveys to acquire additional accreditation.

    Ok... I fell off the carb wagon.... Big time, the whole wagon has tipped and broken to a thousand pieces... Good news is that even though I have not been watching the carbs I have only gained like 3 lbs in about a month... So It would still be a good time to fix the wagon and get back on.. I did however, loose about 14 pounds in about 8 weeks when I was compliant.
