  5. All the work rolls down hill to the clinician who has no voice in the office, and is barely considered a team member by outside agencies. Most institutions are not even aware that you can satisfy PHI via phone HIPPA requirements with 3 identifying it...
  6. I graduated as BSN in 2009 & couldn't GIVE my labor away for experience. Pig in a Snake my butt. Nobody cares about anything but this quarter's profits. I ended up in dead-end home health where they openly ignore labor law, make you feel incompet...

    I'm not sure what you mean by not treating pt as bed-bound, but changing pt/CG behavior is done through age appropriate education. Try telling my 3 y/o to brush her teeth cuz she should! Instead of story time one night I taught her germ theory and sh...
  12. What is appropriate during work hours?

  13. cover letter advice

    Do you think that dropping by the school district office a couple of day after turning in an application would help? I was told to physically seek out employers after graduating but in health care, esp large organizations, this seems pretty hopeless...

  15. Vaping

    I quit smoking 8 years ago and love my vape. Kids vaping instead of smoking seems like progress to me, but no drugs would be better obviously. My thoughts here pertain to nicotine since kids obviously should not be doing THC! The situation is not hel...
