  1. Crisis travel assignments for Covid-19?

    Tulsa OK hospitals usually will. They train and are top notch to work for
  2. Refusing Care of a COVID-19 Patient Due to Inappropriate PPE

    I’m constantly recruited to do hazard pay and I am 62. I’m on the disaster registry. I can work circles around.... I know a 72 year old charge nurse who can too
  3. Nurse demonstrates just how fast germs spread even if you're wearing gloves

    Good job!
  4. Refusing Care of a COVID-19 Patient Due to Inappropriate PPE

    Has anyone here ever heard of laminar flow? I worked on a burn unit that used this years ago. I never became ill with anything while working at that hospital. (Michigan) Later, I found that other burn units and ICU's didn't use this type of techno...
  5. Crisis travel assignments for Covid-19?

    I have worked Critical care for 30 years. I was ACLS from 1988 or 85 until last June. As a traveler, I made less than similar peers working for the hospital I was placed at. (Started traveling due to jobs drying up where I was) I've been out of I...
  6. Boyfriend doesn't want to see me. Am I being selfish?

    I got what I could and left. He’s now an EX. I was stunned. Now I realize I should’ve been wiser to begin with.
  7. Crisis travel assignments for Covid-19?

    What contract tips do you have for 1st time travelers who are considering COVID-19 response assignments? There are a lot of drawbacks to travel nursing. Sometimes you are in an hostile work environment because the regular staff nurses think you are...
  8. Crisis travel assignments for Covid-19?

    I forgot, Supplemental sends quite a few inquiries for this area and have a local representative. Strategic used to staff as third party in the NW. Aerotek does some. There's another one in Florida, but can't remember the name. Wait....check out N...
  9. Crisis travel assignments for Covid-19?

    Maxim staffs the NW, but pays less than others. Favorites staff most of southern Oregon. Cross Country used to have the contract for Kaiser. Therapia has some contracts in WA. Look up agencies under Washington or Seattle. There are several that ...
  10. Many Turn to Craigslist For Lifesaving Drugs

    I would like to add that an albuterol inhaler runs $125 dollars with my insurance. I wish it was $25.
  11. My house is so empty.

    I'm so glad you have a supportive loving husband. I pray the virus doesn't even touch you.
  12. Crisis travel assignments for Covid-19?

    I've been seeing them in a lot of places. I get constant texts and calls. I'm suggesting that you be wary of any agency that doesn't give sick pay. It's a legal requirement in Washington, but the agency I currently work for, out of Florida, does a...
  13. My house is so empty.

    My heart goes out to you. That sounds so painful. I'm very glad your husband didn't insist you be the one in the hotel though! At least you are in your own comfort zone. That seems small, but it really isn't. I hope this is over soon so you and ...
  14. Refusing to work without n95 mask

    There seems to be a lot of nursing home positions open. And, I can tell you that in Washington, unless you are an Amazon with an excellent immune system, you don't want the job. I had some tell me to try it for here and there per diem staffing. Yo...
  15. Boyfriend doesn't want to see me. Am I being selfish?

    I live in Washington and was working as a school nurse when this whole thing started. Agency. My domestic partner locked me out of our apartment. When he decided to answer the phone, he told me that he didn't want to be around anyone that might m...
