  6. 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.

  11. 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.
  12. Fired for taking vacation

    Why? I'd rather be fired and possibly collect unemployment while I seek new job.
  13. Demand for Nurses in Chicago

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

    Cherokee makes 2 tall size tops. 32". I'm 6'4 and they are plenty long. 4876T - Unisex V-Neck Top WW695T - Men's V-Neck Top
  15. 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.
