    Exorcisms anyone?

    Orca, can you define or explain a child defying gravity and walking backwards up a wall which was witnessed by the DCS worker and at least two professionals at the hospital they were taken to? No one said anything about rushing to a diagnosis but some things cant be explained through conventional methods.

    Trac78 thanks for sharing. That must be an awful thing for her to suffer from. I agree that thinking outside of the box may be beneficial for some patients that medicine and therapy just doesn't help.

    Exorcisms anyone?

    Thanks for the link. I will check it out. It is disturbing even to me as a Christian to think that demonic possession is possible but I do believe it is and I just wondered what make the chaplain at that hospital in Indiana say we need a priest for this situation. I understand now that it was probably the witnessed walking backwards up the wall and doing a flip/ defying gravity.

    Exorcisms anyone?

    Offlabel that is what I'm trying to say. It often presents as a mental illness and that is why I posted it under psych nursing. I do not believe that every mental illness is the result of demonic possession. I understand it is rare but I was wondering what everyone's take was on the article I posted and if they had ever seen anything like it. I have said before and said again I do not like posting here a lot because if you are not in the core group that gets on here all the time you constantly get nitpicked and attacked for what you post. I was absolutely not trying to categorize all mental health patients as demonically possessed but pysch nurses would be the most experienced in seeing this sort of thing. My uncle was hospitalized in the 80's for schizophrenia and would often go catatonic and make horrifying claims and statements regarding religious situations. My dad said he went to visit him one time and the look in his eyes were pure evil. I love my uncle and treat him just like any other person in my family. I believe being around him my whole life has given me patience and understanding for people with mental illness that is life changing and debilitating.

    Exorcisms anyone?

    I dont see how I could have possibly offended you by what subject i posted this topic in but let me elaborate further.... As a nurse I have had a patient that would go catatonic, not look anyone in the eye, randomly smacking people in the face including family members and nurses, saying odd religious statements repeatedly and other odd behaviors. She ended up leaving our floor to go to the PSYCH unit, so I am sure psych nurses have seen their fair share of things that im talking about. In regards to how this ties to the story I posted, the doctors could find nothing wrong with these children and the hospital chaplain referred the family to a priest for an exorcism. I didnt know if anyone had heard of that happening in their line of work. You can choose not to believe in external forces such as demons, but many people are spiritual people who believe there is much more to life that meets the eye and that demon possession is completely possible.

    That whole mind reading thing would be so disturbing!

    Exorcisms anyone?

    Zak Bagans' 'Demon House' movie warns, 'View at your own risk' This is just one link. There are multiple sources that a quick google search would turn up. I put it under pysch nursing since demon possession can be identified as a mental health condition. Any suggestions for another topic home for this?

    Exorcisms anyone?

    So just in time for Halloween I was reading about a demon possessed house in Indiana by Latoya Ammons. Apparently this is well documented and involved her children. If you google the DCS report that was made after taking her kids to the emergency room to seek treatment for abnormal behavior such as levitating, growling, and harming each other the DCS worker and other professionals saw one of the children wall backwards up the wall and do a flip that was not compatible with gravity. What are your thoughts, psych nurses? Have you ever witnessed any demon possessions or exorcisms?

    Cna incident investigation

    I hope this works out for you. You may need to hire an attorney but you haven't even had any action taken against you at this point so I'm not sure if that would be necessary. You could at least try to get in touch with an attorney. When working with some techs they often stand around while I'm doing something with the patient or tell me they will leave and come back if im doing something only I can do. Teamwork means each team member finding a share in the work. You could have made many different decisions such as help clean the patient up, pick up trash, get the new depends ready, get the bed in position for her to get back in it, but instead you went on break. That's on you and I think you realize that now.

    Jahi McMath is finally at peace

    As other people have said, no one got kicks from her mom's pain. Jahi never had a say whether she wanted her body to be kept alive for 5 years on a ventilator and artificial feedings because she was brain dead. We are rejoicing because her body has finally been laid to rest after years of denial and respect for her and everyone else best interests. What about the moms living children? They've been raised basically without her this whole time? I bet they needed her more than anything. And don't think that none of us have never lost somebody. Many of us have lost children, spouses, parents, and more. I think most of us can see when quality of life is more important than quantity.

    Jahi McMath is finally at peace

    Elkpark- yes, but I would think that after seeing her code, be pronounced brain dead by multiple doctors, spend almost 5 years being hooked up to life support, battling an infection all year, going into DIC and bleeding out would be enough for her mother to think maybe we should just let her die. But no, they coded her for two hours. Things like this just leave me with nothing else to say expect WTF. Oh and I forgot, perform surgery on a child that was pronounced dead years before.
  12. EaglesWings21

    Jahi McMath is finally at peace

    Coded for over two hours? How is this having regard for her life or her best interests? That is the real tragedy here.

    Jahi McMath is finally at peace

    Mother: Girl at center of debate over brain death dies - ABC News Let's all take a minute to talk about the elephant in the room here. Why on earth, who on earth would operate on a child that's been brain dead for 5 years. We knew this wouldn't end well. Finally Jahi can rest in peace. My condolences to the family. And again, I came across this on my Facebook people; I don't obsessively stalk this family on the internet.

    The ANA supports physician funding over safe patient ratios!

    We are going through staffing cuts at my hospital. People are leaving left and right. Patients aren't getting proper care because nurses just don't have the time. It wears down on a person, especially when you come to work and want to give your patients the best but don't have the tools to do so. Administration can use whatever fancy words they want to but the bottom line is their salaries are at least 6 figures while the weight of patient care is placed on the back of the nurses and the burden keeps getting bigger. The other night I had an acute stroke on my shift, confused patient trying to climb out of bed and pulling everything off, blood pressure in the 180's with q1h intervention, blood transfusion, a family member with an emergency, a patient with s/s of sepsis and no tech. It was almost impossible for me and I consider myself a high performer.
