    The Story of Nathan - 42 Years Later...

    Wow. A lovely story. That was obviously in the pre-surfactant days. Nowadays he'd be intubated, given surfactant, then probably extubated to NCPAP in the morning. NCPAP for awhile, then the feeder-grower thing. Amazing.

    Forced meds?

    Is she pregnant? If she's that developmentally delayed she may have lacked the ability to consent to sex and that might explain some of her refusal to be reasoned with as far as meds?

    Rocephin Injection

    ADC 605 vs Littmann class II infant

    Should I commute?

    You don't need to see a psychiatrist to be prescribed antidepressants, if meds are the direction you think you'll need to go.

    Hipaa violation-What happens to RN?

    Occupational exposure to floor wax

    I read your whole post and I don't have a headache. Paragraphs would have been nice but I can tell you are discussing a concern you have so I will respond rather than continuing to scroll by. I feel bad for you. It seems you have your symptoms docume...

    Female patients at risk because of male patient?

    You mention you've "been called mean and stuff" and you "feel like they expect you to allow him to touch my bits" Depending exactly what and how this was said, they are starting to border on sexual harrassment. Management to employee. And sexual har...
