  3. Foot care training

    Thank you so much, Tutti! I agree with you...it was tough! And, for me at times, still is. With the addition of nurses working along side of me--all with the same goal in mind and with their individual and unique talents, I am now able to realize ...
  4. Foot care training

    Thank you, all of you... I can't recall how long ago it was when I first came to this forum and shared my experiences as a Nurse Entrepreneur--owning and operating my own private duty foot care nursing service. I am in my 10th year of business now. ...
  5. Photos of Wounds on PDA's

    As foot care nurses we never leave home without our poloroids. Pictures are taken ONLY with signed consent from the client or the client's legal guardian. When we admit someone to our service, we ask if they will sign a consent form to photograph w...
  6. Beware Gastric Bypass with stapeling!

    My husband had the Roux n Y (open) 2 years ago. I have lived with this man for a long time...he was not, is not a lazy sort. Todd seems to be the one with the compassion and insight here...you're going to be a very good nurse, Todd. I like your pe...
  7. Foot care training

    Angelbear: Take yourself and your toes to a podiatrist. Let him decide the diagnosis and treatment. There are many conditions which mimic the appearance of onycomycosis but a culture of the nail itself is the most accurate and appropriate way to d...

    Greetings! and all is well, but very, very busy- (which is a good thing and would be an even better thing if I were 20 years younger!) I have a foot care client who is a Veteran. He has IDDM and can be considered brittle. When my services were requ...

  10. Help on starting business

    Ursula! You need a reply. Because of the nature of my work, I would suggest that you teach the CNAs how to observe and care properly for the feet of elderly and disabled. They need to be trained in the proper care and cleansing of the feet, signs ...

    Well, here I am again....I wanted to add: Since the addition to my nursing staff here, we have set up new foot care clinics at 3 Senior Centers, gained 2 more senior apartment complex clinic sites and, in 6 weeks time have realized a 5% increase in ...
  12. Foot care training

    Hi, Guys!! Erin, it's the way of this world....Canada, Germany and a few other European countries all have nurses trained in the delivery of foot care...and the government provides payment. But not here. Hey, I've been in touch with kernow via PM. ...
  13. You call these DIRECTIONS??

    Rusty...some years ago I took a trip to Poland. They gave directions just like the ones you quoted. (Not slamming Polish people.... but jeez! Did I ever get lost. So, I figured that if I followed the setting sun westward I'd eventually get back to...
  14. Nurses with Adult ADD

    lunakat: Yes, I had been diagnosed with depression some years before I was diagnosed with ADD and had been taking Zoloft for it. However, I know now that the depression was partly (and maybe all) due to the symptoms of ADD which were worsening as ...
  15. Inappropriate referrals/admits (Whining!)

    Oh, Hoolie! This is all my fault for not being electronically near to you for these past weeks. I hope that by now you have popped your supervisor(s) in the snoot(s) and reminded them that all incompetent, shortsighted and snotty nurses go to Hade...
