    Unions have been busted by conservative politics and lack of strike action. Wake up people!!!We have no power and we have empowered that thru our attitudes. Stick together or be sold out!!!!!!!Our young enables us! Appreciate them. Lose the christianity, white cap crap. Welcome to 2010. Wake up relaize your exploited female labour and rise to the cause sisters/brothers. We are union weak...but still strong!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Ambulances start charging extra for obese patients(yahoo news)

    Give me a break! Responsibility people!!!! A smoker can't have sx, a drug addict cant have health care. Whats with the joint replacements and bariatric therapy????? We all have to be responsible for lifestyle decisions and addictions. I am a newly diagnosed, severe liver failure HepC. I accept responsibility as nurse (do or die..LOL. I mean that very sarcastically!) I put myself out there as a health care worker..its my fault! LOL. Own your circumstance if you can....some of us cant!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Nursing school double standards?

    Nursing school is hell. Nurses teach when they are burnt out! Take it from there. Get your degree and put it behind you

    I am a "social" drinker and take prescribed immovane to sleep when I work nights. (took) Unknown to me (recently diagnosed in the last 4 weeks) I have Hep C with severe liver involvement. Was recently hospitalized x2 for acute liver failure. My employer states I came to work "sedated". I agree. I believe the immovane didn't clear my system due to my liver failure. Since hospitalization, I have quit taking all my prescribed meds and abstain from alcohol. I did not know about my status, but now that I do, I am taking appropriate measures to take care of myself. I have been off work for 10 weeks. I am attending drug/alcohol education on my own volition (I know they will require it later) My physician has cleared me to return to work. I see a specialist late next yr and am looking at $$$$$$$$ in treatment and sick time. Have cleared all drug tests (negative for everything but immovane, which was perscibed) I am constantly being accused of using street drugs. My boss is eluding that this is the reason for daignosis (not true, and I believe I've proved them wrong) What do I do? What next?????
