    Where do you go when you don't trust official data sources?

    There is no doubt that many, many people don't understand how masks work and often misuse them. That does not negate the fact that when used correctly, masks help. Personally, now that masks mandates in my area are non-existent, I usually carry...

    Where do you go when you don't trust official data sources?

    I too have been talking/thinking/reading/watching all things covid-related practically nonstop since the beginning of the pandemic. Mostly because I'm interested and want to know all that I can, and partly also because I'm a healthcare professional a...

    So, It's Come To This...

    I say screw it. Let specific clinics and hospitals cater to the anti-vaxx, pseudo-science crowd and let's study it. Let them open Ivermectin/Hydroxychloroquine clinics, where none of the staff are vaxxed and the docs and can give any drug they feel l...

    What would you do?

    If she's actually trying to get rid of you, it sounds like she would take this opportunity and not try to bad talk you knowing this could be her chance to get rid of you.

    Delta Variant is Spreading Like Wildfire in Florida

    Curious question for you and whoever might have a good idea about this. I'm vaccinated and I support them, but with so many vaccinated currently contracting covid (I actually just got my positive PCR results today unfortunately), is there not a highe...

    Gross Me Out 🤮 Contest | Nurses Week

    Our ER had an "extra plus sized" patient come in for some reason that is beside the point of the story, but the patient had a particularly bad odor. Needless to say, the ER did not get around to cleaning up the patient and sent them on to the ICU, wh...

    Does the shot mess with your DNA?

    I hope the OP isn't a nurse, because it makes me sad to know that a nurse is out there practicing who either a) doesn't remember some biology basics, b) is too lazy to research and refresh said biology basics, or c) doesn't believe the science behind...

    The wage gap myth

    You do realize your two points literally conflict each other, right? Don't cause any drama.......but be more disagreeable?

    Getting harassed at work and not sure what to do about it?

    Sounds to me like there's a lot more nuance to the story than the OP is sharing. Just randomly offering a ride? Waiting 2 days for a response? Now there's a weird dynamic with everyone at work created because of it? Just doesn't add up.

    Anyone get anxiety prior to their shift?

    Always keep in mind that in life as whole, and particularly in nursing, things are almost always worse in your mind than they are in real life. 99% of the time I'm nervous about a situation, when I look at it in retrospect it wasn't nearly as bad as ...

    Covid Vaccine

    I too hesitated for a few weeks due to similar reasoning, and then decided to go ahead and get it because I realized I would be waiting a really long time (probably years) if I was actually trying to wait and see all the possible long term effects. ...

    COVID Misinformation/Ignorance

    Sooooo.......because a precaution doesn't work 100% of the time or is not being rigidly enforced then it is a useless concept? Terrible rationale. We may as well never wear seat belts, or helmets, or gloves in a patient room, or a plethora of other o...

    Covid Vaccine

    I'll admit, I passed on the first round of the vaccines at my hospital when they recently asked who wanted to get it, but it is precisely because I DO trust the science.......and understand that science takes time and trial and error. The mRNA v...

    Could masks be another vector?

    Seems that you really don't understand the function of masks at all.

    Could masks be another vector?

    Ah, the good old victim card. This has NOTHING to do with free speech. You can ramble on about a spaghetti monster that lives on the dark side of the moon for all I care, but I'm still going to call you out for it being a stupid theory if there's no ...
