  1. Medical leave ending but no job yet. Accept another?

    Please clarify with your current employer whether you will be responsible for any of the cost of benefits you received during your leave. The Family & Medical Leave Act allows employer (in some circumstances) to bill employees for a portion of th...
  2. Fired

    I'm sorry for your circumstances. I seriously doubt you were dismissed for a performance problem. Even in right to work states, employees have some protections against malicious firing. Employers typically have Human Resources policies and procedures...
  3. Geisinger Pseudomonas Outbreak

    https://wnep.com/2019/11/08/donor-breast-milk-processing-source-of-geisinger-nicu-infection/ This article describes the pharmacy's procedure (or lack thereof) for cleaning equipment used to measure donor breastmilk as hand washing with a brush and ai...
  4. Drug Reference for Home Use

    Can anyone recommend a practical drug reference guide (website, app or hard-copy book) for home use? I am new to case management and often field questions about diluting or crushing meds to be given via g-tube. I have no trouble finding sources that...
  5. Universal Deathcare.

    Thanks, Kyrshamarks for opening a realistic conversation about the topic of government controlled healthcare. Alfie's case (nor the other little boy earlier this year, whose name I can't recall) was NOT about preventing a slow painful death, or even ...
  6. Hiring an RN into private practice

    Beth, might you be confusing TMS with ECT? What you are describing is typical of out-patient ECT, where an efficient, well-run clinic can admit, treat, recover, and discharge an experienced patient about 1-1/2 or 2 hours. TMS does not require a patie...
  7. It's state law here: Rule 59 – Regulations for School Health and Safety – Nebraska Dept of Education
  8. Are hospital acquired surgical site infections reportable (by mandate) to any government or regulatory agency? Is there a means for a patient to self-report a hospital acquired surgical site infection, like a website or hotline, similar to the report...
  9. I'm sorry you didn't get the job you wanted, but I believe you are over-stating things just a bit. You said you were not interested in rotating shifts. That is a far cry from disclosing a disability. Plenty of nurses reject rotating shifts for plen...
  10. The Nut Conundrum

    What is a "nut aware" school? I can think of a couple of working definitions that have nothing to do with food consumption.
  11. Onions....

    This little Irish woman agrees with your grandmother! And my hubby's name is Todd. So "Hot Toddy" just makes me giggle, whiskey or not :)
  12. What do you think about this psychiatrist?

    The first thing I noticed about this post was: "Patient is 21 years old tells the psychiatrist she has OCD." My thought: Starting off an initial visit with a new healthcare provider by informing the provider what one's diagnosis should be will prob...
  13. HIPPA violation if the patient isn't in your facility?

    Please correct me if I'm wrong, but I understand that the OP chose to transfer care to the clinic where her former friend is employed after knowing that the former friend shared news of her pregnancy, yet wants to report the former friend for a non-e...
  14. What is your opinion on calling in "sick"

    I agree that taking care of yourself is the key, and don't believe that seeing a doctor is the only way to accomplish that. What I do believe is that calling out (typically on short notice, when one is taking a mental health day) IS abusive if nothin...
  15. What is your opinion on calling in "sick"

    If your physical or mental condition prevents you from performing your job duties, then it is appropriate to call out sick. However, just as you would consult a healthcare provider for a physical illness, it is your responsibility to seek appropriat...
