    Mandating vaccine for children

    I wasn't about to sift through pages of you guys debating social contracts. Did you ever link to the study you referenced?
  2. The comment wasn't really that bad. Posting pictures of a patient is a different story, though.. How are people still getting in trouble for doing this? You figure with all the stories about privacy violations people will figure out it's a bad i...

    Nurses Promoting COVID Misinformation

    This doesn't track with what we know historically about vaccines. Side effects are apparent within months. In a 20-year review of vaccines published in 2020, only one vaccine had been withdrawn for safety and it was studied and removed within the yea...

    Nurses Promoting COVID Misinformation

    Your responses are a great example of how personal beliefs and opinions don't always reflect the reality. A lot of what you're saying has to do with holes in your knowledge regarding vaccines and the development of this particular vaccine. There's a ...
  5. Medscape article Nursing Student Expelled After 'Insensitive' Assignment About Shooting Summary: 39 y/o nursing student attending Umpqua Community College in Oregon was expelled for her response to the prompt "Whomever you identified as your pri...
  6. If a 25 y/o stopped breathing from minor injuries then they might not have been as healthy as you thought. 😄 I don't know California law. There's a standardized form in my state that is legally binding. Just like you don't HAVE to drive sober, you do...
  7. Bruh. Where am I arguing this? Where do you pull this stuff from? Let me try one more time What legal right does a nurse have to override both patient and informed consent and refuse to administer a medication at the correct route, dose, a...
  8. LOL at this point you're either trolling or intentionally misconstruing the argument. This is about the limits to the nurses ability to refuse orders (refer to poll title: "Can nurses refuse to give ordered care?"), not about the impact an indiv...
  9. The argument here is that a nurse should be able to withhold a potentially life-saving option because there are theoretical risks associated with it. But aren't there risks associated with *any* new medication, or really any medication period? I know...
  10. It could have been worded better. I'm not the OP but I imagine they meant ethically/morally and that's what lead to some of the confusion and debate. Asking if someone could refuse to administer an inappropriate dose due to timing/contraindications/e...
  11. LOL "chastisement," "diatribe," "doomsday." I'm not sure why the hate but I love your flair for the dramatic. An actually interesting point could have been why one would not put themselves into legally questionable territory but would support others ...
  12. These are good examples. Someone at the age of 85 has a greater risk of drying from covid than someone at the age of 25. If an 85 year old, after discussing the risks and benefits with their provider, wishes to receive the vaccine, what legal standin...
  13. I'm not sure why you're splitting hairs here. My reply is for anyone who feels, whether for themselves or others, that they have the legal standing to refuse to administer a medication based on misinformation and facebook posts. If you voted yes then...
  14. THIS. It's a cycle of conspiracy theories and misinformation picked up by healthcare professionals who then post about it which is then linked to by others as "proof" that the original nonsense was right - from masks causing dangerous hypoxia to hcq ...
  15. "Can nurses refuse to give ordered care? 1. Should a nurse be allowed to refuse to give the COVID vaccine?" 😉
  16. How have so many people voted yes on this?? Would you refuse to administer an antibiotic? Tylenol because you don't like Johnson & Johnson? Taking a job that includes administration of vaccines and then refusing to administer them cannot be ...
