  1. Ever have such a bad day/week, you've almost quit?

    Haze, You know I don't work OB but I also told you about another opportunity out there when we met in Vegas in March. And, I know there are other hospitals. You can do something else. You have just lost your confidence since you have been there ...
  2. code help

    Being a long term care nurse who was ACLS certified was very fustrating for me. So, from someone who knows, have then take turns checking the crash cart - I mean checking! have them put the blades on the scope, have them change the bulbs, batteries,...
  3. Patient Teaching

    I would be glad to help you if I can, can you email me with more details? I have school T/TH but could wook out some time later in the week. I actually had a resource web site set up in my last nursing home for family and staff. My email is bbros...
  4. For well-to-do, health care has become a catered affair

    They employ nurses, so where do I apply? come on, if the money is good, we as nurses are also missing a golden opportunity, and the "shift" work would probably be well balanced with the "perks" of the job, don't you think?
  5. Where have all the leaders gone?

    jt & ormar, I have to agree with you. I just dropped my insurance in August, since I am self employed I have to pay all my insurance and additional costs. With a PPO, I still was excluded for life on my arthritis, even though I take no medica...
  6. MC Payments to nursing homes to be raised

    Just for the record, that increase, in reality works out to be less in some areas. In Texas, the proposed base rate will go from $84.08 per day to $91.62 per day, an increase of $7.54 per resident day. And, that increase is tied to enhanced staffin...
  7. Universal Healthcare

    I am printing all this information and using it for ethics!! Plus to educate myself as I move into learning more for working in health care policy. This is really great. I have to agree that the health care system is broken, and insurance/money al...
  8. Universal healthcare grassroots movement

    Just in my "neighborhood" the physicians don't like universal health care, or any other changes. Not that they like the HMO's either, they just want it to go back to the good old days. I guess that the paranoia comes from "if it seems to good to b...
  9. "Nursing homes" giving nurses a bad rap

    this is the 2nd time I have read all the posts, and I have to tell you; the reason there are fewer responses is because you guys have already said it all. The elderly are great, and anyone in nursing in this day and age needs to know and enjoy them ...
  10. Do We Need Our Own Malpractice Insurance?

    Ihave always carried my own malpractice insurance because I don't want to rely on my employer to protect me, after all they don't do it at work, they don't care about me other than as a commodity, so why would they protect me? It might be in their ...
  11. Houston's only open trauma center burdened by patient load

    "And barbara Rose...PLEASE GET OFF the town hall TNA thing about this...they could not have done anyhting about the flood...it was an act of God and not created by administration. And The TNA is NOT calling for Vol. to work i Houston...that was a cal...
  12. Universal healthcare grassroots movement

    Do you know any of these docs personally? I have to wonder about physicians who want universal health care. Maybe I am just paranoid, but seems that it will hurt them more than the rest of us, and perhaps the agenda here is to equal the reimburseme...
  13. A Thought for a solution to nurse/client ratios

    Jami, There are lots of groups out there working on staffing guidelines and legislation, lots of research and information on why and how to implement them. Problem seems to be that those who don't nurse are the ones who want to control these numbe...
  14. Mistakes

    Norbert, Sounds like you want advise on a specific incident or situation rather than in general. These questions can't be answered without additional information. The facilities in my area don't have any official list; it is more of a "known" bec...
  15. Houston's only open trauma center burdened by patient load

    It is my understanding that Texas is one of the hardest hit states due to our large and spread out land mass. Plus, the "cities" seem to have it worse than the "country" areas in the eastern half of the state, with the west and south bad in all area...
