    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 r...

    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 som...

    Exorcisms anyone?

    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...

    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 wonde...

    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 includ...

    Exorcisms anyone?

    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 condi...

    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 wi...

    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...

    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 mo...

    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...
  14. 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 pa...

    How did you get the big pay raise?

    Two words: float pool

    Dealing with Guilt and Coping

    As someone who has lost someone recently and played every scenario over and over in my head and thought, what if we did this instead of that. Sometimes the answer is people are just too sick, sometimes accidents happen, sometimes acute life-threaten...

    Can nurses live a luxurious life?

    I live in the Midwest and have less than 5 years of nursing experience. I just took a just making around $95,000 before overtime. However, my previous job I made about half of that without overtime. I had a really nice opportunity handed to me. C...

    Garbage Report

    One of the worst reports I've witnessed and assisted in the subsequent code: obs floor was transferring a patient to the medical surgical floor. Last thing the obs RN told the receiving RN was that the patient was going into flash pulmonary edema. ...

    Garbage Report

    As far as staying late, if it's an immediate need or concern for the patient, yes I will. But nursing is a 24 hour operation so some things can and should be passed on.

    Garbage Report

    Left a patient and came back the next day to find the patient extremely confused, vital signs indicating severe sepsis, family members and night shift RN tell me patient was like that all night and no doctor was ever notified. Med student came into ...

    Nurses cannot perform miracles

    Thought about posting this on Facebook but didn't think it would be well received, so I thought maybe my fellow nurses could relate. Yesterday I entered a patient's room with high hopes of reviewing the care plan, working on pain and nausea control,...

    Nurses cannot perform miracles

    LovingLife123, that's the thing is that I came in her room to assess her and see how I could help with her pain and nausea but wasnt even able to get to that point because she was going off on me about anything and everything. Thank you all for the w...

    Nurses cannot perform miracles

    Definitely agree with the Facebook thing. I am the type of person that likes to form relationships and wants to make sure my patients know I will do my best to take care of them for the 12 hours I was there. I guess it just had me so frustrated th...

    Non Type A nurses

    Nothing against type A nurses, but I started a new job and my preceptor is very type A. She wants to know everything, be in control of everything, and is just go go go without giving me much opportunity to get my own workflow going. I am pretty new...

    How do you discuss gender issues with adolescents?

    I read something recently that made perfect sense to me. It said something along the lines of "you are not your sexuality." If your students struggle I would tell them they are not defined by these struggles or urges. They have so much more time f...
