    Good Night, Florence

    If you look not only a FN, but other early nurses in the US as well as other countries, really read about them, you will find that the majority if not all, stepped out of the norm for women and what society expected from women. The truth is that if w...

    The Family

    It is not a crime to ask a family member to leave the bedside. I have done it rarely in my career, but when I have done this it is because of what the patient needs. There are times that no matter how much you have explained to the family what is hap...

    I need your input on this!

    LoisJean, Great for you! After speaking with you on the phone I hope you know that I think the idea that only an RN is a nurse is a bunch of bunk. Several times I have been all ready to join the ANA through the Michigan Nurse Association, but everyti...

    How do you deal with your anger at work?

    I know that I am different than most, but I usually tackle problems head on. I would not change my schedule, if it worked for my life I would keep it. I would however tell this nurse she was inappropriate when that happened. I would also write an inc...

    Ready to give up....

    Glad to be of assistance Julie. And just for the sake of more ammuniation per se, it is not recommended to do any regular flushing of foley's. All that information can be found on the CDC website. Next just because it is a physician order does not me...

    Also the CDC does not recommend changing foley's unless there is a specific reason, it is not to be done on a regular basis, that promotes more infection potential not less. Tell that to the RN. Your facility is way behind times. Run away fast.

    Julie, I concur with everything everyone else has said, I just need you to know that the write up you received was bunk though. Insulin does not need to be refrigerated anymore. If it is a written policy for it to be that is one thing, but if there i...

    Britstudent, you were an hour north of where I live. By the way it is spelled M-i-c-h-i-g-a-n! Now the big question. Did you have the grand opportunity of experiencing lake effect snow? Once upon a time I was going to work in the neuro ICU at Blodge...

    Karen, curious what do you think of Beverly Malone? She is still the head of the RNC then? Britstudent, a dutch porn star....just the thought :roll Where in the states did you spend time?
  12. Tenet has had these issues over and over again, going back over 20 years. They are called Tenet because they changed their name some years ago because the first name, which I can't remember right now, was so associated with fraud and scandel that the...

    Question- calling all mothers!!!!!

    My oldest child is very bright, he spoke full complete sentences by 18 months. About age 3 he had times he would stutter, it was frustrating for him, but usually if I told him to slow down a bit it would help. I agree it was a process of his brain be...

    Naw, I don't think it is rude, I think it is funny. Maybe just me though. I think of it this way. Britian is a very small island, but it's impact has been huge. The culture that has been dissimated by the Brits is felt all over the world. The Scots o...
