  2. Any ID/DD Nurses in Virginia?

  3. Overmedication: The Silent Killer Of the Elderly

    What part of this article is opinion? Not playing devil's advocate here; I just don't see it. And I get asked to explain this quite often--from patients, friends, relatives...I just tell them that I'm a nurse, not an insurance salesman--but secretl...
  10. Do Not Over-Share!

    What a great topic that spurred so many thoughtful comments, thank you! My opinion is: if you're annoying, you best not be crazy; also, expect everything you do to be scrutinized. On the flip side: if you're crazy, make sure EVERYONE really likes y...
