    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 short shrift if you think thats an article/site worth linking to. My favourite article from them:

    It wasn't profitable, if they didn't make money why are they going to sell it?

    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.

    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.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2870557/ So, thanks SNJ, thats another reason to support vaccines and despise anti-vaccine hysteria.

    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..... You also conflated the CDC with the FDA and made up stories about it infecting patietns, it didn't it may have caused arthritis. A terrible post all round.

    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 drive. Its a completely nonsense discussion. Its also most likely entirely fabricated.
  7. What happens when your focus is money and not care (I know they're obviously linked but still).
  8. No, the silly logic is equating a kitchen item with military style weapons.
  9. But you're okay with the strict access to cars though right? you're okay that there are tests before you get to drive a car? Or we should just allow people to go in to a shop and buy a car and use it.
  10. Video games are blamed yet the world plays them. Lack of God is to blame yet America is still one of the most religious countries. Bad parenting is to blame yet every country clearly has bad parents. Mental health is to blame yet every country has rising mental health issues. Somewhere there is an underlying reason why other western societies don't have these issues, there must be something America does differently. Hmmm.

    Ohio Hospital Fires 23 After Fentanyl Overdose Deaths

    I don't know how it works in America but in the UK we use a book called the BNF which has the licensed doseing for the drugs, working outside of those is of course possible under certain instructions and policies but to work outside of that by a factor of 10 is absurd. So a 'normal maximum dose' does exist in the UK, and its 200mcg for an unventilated patient, this does not mean that its a one size fits all, that wasn't what I was suggesting. Reminds me of this case https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-sussex-14709990 in my own hospital. They opened something like 15 vials of Digoxin, as soon as you open more than 4 or 5 you need to start looking heavily at your dosing imo.

    Cleaning patients after bowel movements.

    What a weird escalation, a very simple why do you wish to know turns in to you are what trampled on my dreams. As to the original question we use wipes designed for removing fluids and stuff from skin.
  13. I'm glad I live somewhere that does not screen its staff, I appreciate private companies have issues but jeez man, treat staff like adults.

    Useless Shift Report Information

    It's one of my pet peeves. I just want the basics. Its hard for me to chose a particular subject that irritates me I just have a real dislike of a laborious handover.
  15. The thread title is misleading to say the least, this has nothing to do with free speech as its written in the constitution, even if it was in America which it isn't. This is pretty harsh on initial reading but fundamentally freedom of speech doesn't exist anywhere and is far too liberally thrown around incorrectly.

    I really don't need any more information than 'Nurse administered 2000mcg of Fentanyl', that is more than enough to know you should lose your job. There isn't a circumstance or situation in the world that would make me give 10x the normal maximum dose, crying sensationalism is a waste of time when the facts are so clear.
