    HELP!! Which Position to Choose??

    Sounds like we're all thinking along the same lines ... "Great minds think alike." :))

    "Thank you for your service"

    Did it seem to become more prevalent when covid emerged as the 'Chinese' flu, or what ever DJT called it in that it was China's fault? Maybe just my observation ...

    Medications Mixing and Nasogastric Feeding Tubes

    Neither should extended-relief pills. I do know a RN who attempted to administer a Colace gel tab whole with a GT. And she tried to do it during a State survey med pass inspection. (The surveyor stopped her!) Needless to say we got DINGED! I never liked to crush together gazillion pills - usually I would just split them out to do half, or maybe a third, at a time.
  7. How interesting!

    I have a few threads on the 'blue side'. But my threads aren't quite as provocative as SB's. Guess I had a milquetoast career.

    climate change and nursing

    Am a retiree but I hope I can give an idea. I don't believe community (local, state, national or international) is seriously looking ahead at disaster preparedness. I'm a Weather Channel junkie, and just this morning they were talking about how within the past some years, the nation has been experiencing more hurricanes with increasing severities. Climate change is making for warmer ocean waters which yield increased hurricane potentials. I maintain that it was the failure of the levee system in New Orleans that was a major contributor to the catastrophic effects of Hurricane Katrina. Had the levees been maintained, it is likely less damage would have occurred. Sorry to say, but climate change is down on the list for may until something major happens, like when a Polar Vortex cause a deep freeze in Chicago and electric power went out. NO HEAT and no power to power home oxygen equip. Just some random thoughts.

    Predatory New Grad Contracts

    CreamCheese - I apologize in that I did stretch the analogy re contracts. But my point was meant to reflect that a contract is just that --- a BINDING contract. Expectations that you BELIEVE to be inherent but not specified, are just that. Nonexistent. It's only what's in the contract that matters.
