  1. Got The Vaccine! Share Your Experience

    I received my vaccine today. I work the outpatient area where covid testing is done in a high risk urban area. We have a high flow of patient's who may or may not have covid walking through. So far, no side effects, not even at the injection si...
  2. FL is not following mandatory mask/social distancing protocol

    It's really sad that people are unwilling to sacrifice for our elders who have to come out of their homes for medical services if nothing else. I don't see why covid cannot be controlled to the extent that Korea and Europe has managed to do.
  3. KN95 mask?

    I don't think your missing something. It sounds like you and the patient's are not well protected, although I don't know what the acceptable guidance is for KN95 mask. I don't think we as a society value elders. It also appears that we don't value ...
  4. Your Thoughts on COVID-19 Vaccine

    Yes, interesting article about vaccines. One good thing is that many people with covid 19 recover and produce antibodies . Hopefully this knowledge will help vaccine research move along. Moreover, it's likely that having antibodies provides protect...
  5. Your Thoughts on COVID-19 Vaccine

    I've believe the virus is mutating very slowly and a vaccine may ultimately stop the spread of covid 19. I'm not even going to guess as to which one will be most effective and safe. However, I believe a vaccine is the only thing that will get the e...
  6. Not able to be with mother with dementia in hospital due to Covid

    I think no testing after potential exposure, and continuation of work places our patient's, expecially the elders and most vulnerable at risk. How many patient's is a pre-symptomatic healthcare worker exposing ? I'm not surprised at your employer...
  7. Not able to be with mother with dementia in hospital due to Covid

    It's really sad what is happening in nursing homes. I don't understand why the most vulnerable population was not protected adequately. Why not more testing availability for family who wants to enter and see their love ones? There are some rapid tes...
  8. Living as an older individual with comorbidities

    Hello Hillbilly RN I understand the concern for your safety. I live in a large city and there are plenty of covididiots out there. Many people don't wear mask, don't keep a social distance. I'm amazed when reportors question government about reopeni...
  9. Depressed, unhappy, feeling lost

    I had to turn off the TV and visit allnurses today. The news is very depressing. And Yes, it's all covid. This little virus has turned the world upside down and everyone is affected weather it be loss of job, loss of loved ones, fear of getting dis...
  10. I'm sorry that you feel so badly. I know someone advised that you get help for your anxiety earlier. Do you have an employee assistance program at work that you can call and discuss your anxiety. They might be able to provide some resources for you...
  11. Hi. It sounds like you have been in nursing for about one year now. The first year is challenging, especially if you had issues with anxiety frequently in the past. Personally, I think nursing is stressful, although many nurses don't feel this way. ...
  12. Sick but negative

    Just like many I have gone to work prior to covid, not feeling well. My employers were not forgiving of a call in. However, in the future, I can't see myself doing this and placing the more vulnerable at risk and I will definitely tell my employer ev...
  13. Are Sanitized N95 Masks Safe for Reuse?

    The land of milk and honey ! If you want a test for covid 19, you get a test ? If you need an N95 mask, you get a mask ? From news reports, it would appear there was so much PPE made available to healhthcare workers, that this problem was resolved, ...
  14. It sounds wise to hunker down for awhile while waiting for more effective treatments if your over 60 and with comorbid conditions. Unfortunately, it may not be economically possible for all of us. Health insurance is very expensive and tied to our jo...
  15. New nurse, asthma, Covid-19, What do I do?

    I soppose it largely depends on where you live and work. Perhaps some states or rural areas have less covid patients and it may be safer for you to practice there. I work in the city, office or triage nursing, mostly telephone triage. However, I enc...
