    Keto diet & pills on ca probation

    Muno, I’ve read and enjoyed your posts for years but in this instance, I don’t even know where to begin to respond. I am a diabetic, wearing a insulin pump right now, intentionally in ketosis, and have been for a long time like many diabetics.

    6,500 Nurses to Go Out on Strike 09/20/19 in Four States

    These fill in nurses crossing the picket line for $840 a day in Chicago. Good money now, but don’t let those 2200 nurses see your face. Don’t cross a picket line.

    patient pretending to fall?

    I deal with fake falls all the time. When they do it, we discontinue all narcs. Narcotics are fall risk drugs and we don't want them to fall again.

    Giving insulin late patient request

    If I'm reading it right, it's sliding scale, that's just correcting a high sugar so I totally get that, doesn't matter if they eat or not. Now if it was a scheduled 15 units then I would be curious if what I said above my edit is happening.

    Fired for taking vacation

    Why? I'd rather be fired and possibly collect unemployment while I seek new job.

    Demand for Nurses in Chicago

    Union hospital on top of saturated market. People get hired at Stroger and stay.

    Addressing the Predicted Nursing Shortage

    The is no requirement for BSN to obtain magnet status. It is 1 of the biggest lies in nursing next to Joint Commission caring about having a closed bottle at your workstation.

    Fox News calls CNA a nurse

    Every other news source that reported it called her a nurse too. Sadly, the girl is dead. Let's let her be a nurse in memory and not worry about if she was one or not and which news organization reported it.

    Trinity in Rock Island

    Anyone know PRN rate at Trinity in Rock Island, IL? Know if it's the same across the river in Bettendorf? Thanks in advance.
  11. Anyone know the PRN rate for R.N.'s at Trinity in Bettendorf? Also curious to other rates at Iowa hospitals.
  12. I haven't read all the comments and I hope someone has already said something similar. Matt Lauer supposedly physically touched. I am a male nurse and I "sexually harass" every single female on my unit and they do it right back. I wouldn't have it any other way, we are family. I have NEVER touched a coworker without her permission and if anyone was ever offended, I would stop immediately with that person. We got a new bladder scanner on our unit and a few of the nurses said "Come on, let's test this thing on you and see that thing you got." And of course I let them. Work would be boring if we didn't have fun with each other. It makes us closer and family. I ask coworkers all the time to show me their "t word." Heck, I did it tonight. Once again, if ANYONE ever asked me to stop, I would.

    SubQ injections

    On rare occasions, I give myself insulin through my shirt, but would never do on a patient.

    Hydration Stations in the Nursing Station

    The 2 biggest lies in nursing right now is that Joint Commission cares about drinks in the nursing station and that Magnet Status has something to do with BSN push. Neither are true.

    New nurse needs tall scrub tops!

    Another tall I found is Landau 7489. Which Cherokee did you find with 32" Center Back Length? The 4701? I don't know about the stretch. I'm on a hunt too, my 4701's are getting worn out and I'm so disappointed they are discontinued.

    Larger sizes don't usually give more length.
