  1. Fact or Fiction?  Masking and CO2 Dangers

    I've worn an ffp3 mask for 4 or 5 hours straight without any respiratory changes. Hot as hell and uncomfortable. You could have peer reviewed data coming out of your wazoo and these conspiracy theorists won't care.
  2. What's the RIGHT answer to this clinical scenario?

    In the UK here so might be slight changes in procedure but we would instantly trigger an immediate review from the doctor and our nurse outreach team. Those numbers are an early warning score of 10+ which is our peri arrest warning scores, whatever i...
  3. Dr. Pimple Popper Thinks Nurses Have No Place Educating Patients

    She's deleted original tweet so its all gone for me to check it out. Patient education is such a massive part of our role, she's a buffoon if she really believes this.
  4. Huddle being used as a disciplinary tool

    Yes, this is normal practice imo. We had someone attach an IV to an art line and an art line to their peripheral canula, it was in the morning huddle. To be fair, there was no naming and shaming but it must have been hard for the staff nurse to hear ...
  5. RN in Medical School -Should I keep this to myself?

    Nursing in America sounds tragically vindictive from what I've read in this thread and others.
  6. To Vaccinate Or Not To Vaccinate, That Is The Question

    That globalresearch article is the utter worst of causation=/=correlation fallacies. A terrible article that anyone should be embarrassed to link. Its also notoriously anti-semetic, pseudoscientifc, and a haven for conspiracy nutjobs. You'll get very...
  7. To Vaccinate Or Not To Vaccinate, That Is The Question

    It wasn't profitable, if they didn't make money why are they going to sell it?
  8. To Vaccinate Or Not To Vaccinate, That Is The Question

    No, I sometimes have debates with people who think the earth is flat, some people just have bad ideas and need to be told that.
  9. To Vaccinate Or Not To Vaccinate, That Is The Question

    If anyone is interested in the Lyme disease vaccine story its a very interesting read to highlight the hysteria around the anti-vax movement and how a drug shown to be safe or mostly safe was removed from use because of misinformation. https://www.nc...
  10. RN in Medical School -Should I keep this to myself?

    What would you hope to gain? Why does it need to gain anything? Its a part of who you are. Why should you hide a part of your identity and past? How on earth does that look odd? I really am not seeing the logic why a nurse needs to hide their profes...
  11. To Vaccinate Or Not To Vaccinate, That Is The Question

    90,000 people died because of measles in 2016, but sure, generally speaking its not drastic. Yeah, I see, Tetanus shots are kinda pointless. Polio still occurring, its almost like they should sell vaccines as not 100% proof against the disease..... ...
  12. RN in Medical School -Should I keep this to myself?

    I work in the NHS, every time we've had a nurse turn to a doctor its been great because they're normally better than the rest. I see no reason why you can't just be honest?
  13. To Vaccinate Or Not To Vaccinate, That Is The Question

    No, it literally means nothing. I have 3 friends who don't have a driving license who are never sick yet most of the people I know with driving licenses have been sick at some stage and stay sick. They are also big proponents of everyone learning to...
  14. ???? What happens when your focus is money and not care (I know they're obviously linked but still).
  15. No, the silly logic is equating a kitchen item with military style weapons.
