    Brian Short News

    I'm in shock, complete shock. How tragic - how awful - my prayers and my family's prayers going out to all their family and friends.

    August 2015 Caption Contest. Win $100!

    This is Harold. He used to be a retail manager, but now he's a student nurse. Because there's a nursing shortage and nurses make really good money.

    Travel to Tampa area next winter

    I live in FL and used to work for Baycare. Loved it! No matter where they house you in Pinellas County, you aren't more than 20 minutes from a great beach. Hospitals include: Morton Plant, Mease Countryside, Mease Dunedin, North Bay, St. Anthony's, St. Joseph's, and more, but try to get into one of those if you're a beach-lover.

    NS at 125 ml/hr is not an ER order

    Completely unethical and a huge waste of resources right there. But back to the original post - I'm not an ER nurse, but I completely understand and agree with the op's point. Even if that supposedly stable pt crashes suddenly, there are ways that iv meds can be given. Maybe your dude hasn't been checked off on them yet?

    You Know Things Are Bad When Doctor Visits Plunge 8% Year-Over-Year

    given the state of the economy and budget-cutting measures that cut programs that help low-income folks, i figured this would happen. not good. i'm also seeing the results of folks who have run out of their meds, some with dire consequences. one of the big reasons i was for obama-care.

    Nurses using EKGs

    We used to have to share the ekg machine with a sister unit. I always wanted one that would roll faster. Lightweight would be good.

    NYC Woman Accused of Attempting To Have Doctors & Nurses Murdered

    I agree, but I'll go a step further to say that the root of this problem could very well lie in staffing. No one has time to educate effectively any more because the hospital systems are geared to a "get 'em in and get 'em out" mentality. At the same time, we're trying to educate people who are under an extreme amount of stress to understand processes and procdures that took us years of education and experience to understand. Expect to see more of this type of response unless some changes are made.

    Riverview Reg. Med. Center nurse murdered (AL/GA)

    Or perhaps, a warning--since the culprit is still unknown and could be an ER coworker, patient or family member.

    tgh nicu nurse murdered

    http://www.myfoxtampabay.com/dpp/news/local/pinellas/billboards-to-help-murdered-mothers-autistic-son-110310 Larsen's death is a tragic loss for her family, our profession and our community.

    Riverview Reg. Med. Center nurse murdered (AL/GA)

    My opinion is that this relates to nursing in that this was a colleague, a fellow nurse, and it is a loss for the profession as well as inferential evidence of the disproportion degree of violence against nurses as opposed to other professions. It is a tragedy that affects us all. My condolences to her family.

    tgh nicu nurse murdered

    I'm including this news story link because it has details about the trust fund for aidric. this hits especially close to home for me because i don't live far from where it happened, and it particularly disturbs me that this talented young nurse was so violently murdered when she actively tried to get the guy away from her. http://www.myfoxtampabay.com/dpp/news/local/hillsborough/family-copes-with-young-mothers-death-10272010

    California law now allows convicted felons in home healthcare program

    One would think that the CNA would also be outraged on behalf of their member nurses. But I see no comment. How irresponsible of them.
