  1. License Investigation

    If you have nursing insurance, call them and let them know. Either way, get a lawyer and don't say anything until you and your lawyer are on the same page. Once that is done, discuss a possible libel lawsuit against the woman who did this to you. She...
  2. Nurse Charged With Homicide

    This whole interlude has been rather strange. I just hope it is over soon for all involved. I feel awful for everyone involved. It sounds like an absolute nightmare. I am not sure I would be up to the fight. Studies show that a number of nurses caugh...
  3. Nurse Charged With Homicide

    And then people wonder why I get irritable when they keep interrupting me when I am pulling meds ? It is not ok to keep harassing nurses with phone calls and interruptions while they are pulling narcotics and wasting meds, but it happens. It is up to...
  4. Nurse Charged With Homicide

    This is the reason I always tell my patients that no, I will not hurry. I will take my time and ensure I know what I am doing. I will review meds I do not know, and educate them. If I get your pancakes wrong, you will live. If I get your meds wrong, ...

  9. Biting Your Tongue

    Too true :) I started one of my shifts as I always do, start the head to toe assessment, and the female began yelling at me as to what was I doing, etc. "A head to toe assessment to ensure your skin is still intact and there are no issues that need t...
  10. Best MD note

    I seriously have no words for this...it is really easy to ask questions when one does not know. Seriously :/

  12. Bahahahaha!!! OMG. Priceless. Very cool :)
  13. Stupid things that nurses say

    I am usually rather reclusive when not at work. Today, I spent all day long out at the school with the kids, then stores, in crowded conditions interacting. Exhausted, wanting to sleep, yet unable to do so due to being so wired from the day (intense ...
