    Question As A Male Nurse

    As a woman, I would definitely reject a male nurse for this specialty. I would also probably reject a male doctor. I did have a male doctor for one of my birth which was a home birth as all of them were. It was okay but I really don't like having mal...

    Nurse and Bipolar

    Our society needs to be more flexible and accommodating of the variations of human beings. I don't believe that bipolar or ADD or the autism spectrum are necessarily disorders. I think modern culture has required people to be medicated into subservie...
  3. Yes, it does boil down to the simple fact that all nurses need to look at the medication, and verify that they are giving the correct one. I've caught myself before by reading the vial. I looked at it and said "Oh I took the wrong medication out, how...

    Patient Died in ER lobby

    If you don't want people to die in the lobby, you need a designated healthcare worker rounding on those people. Someone who is posted in the lobby whether it's busy or not. Someone with good people skills who can explain things to the waiting patient...

    Patient Died in ER lobby

    I have worked in nonprofit hospitals and they seem to operate very similar to the for-profit ones. Executives still get bonuses for cutting costs. The problem is at those are short-term goals that are achieved by ignoring possible long-term outc...

    Patient Died in ER lobby

    I worked in the emergency room for 9 years of my career and a lot of my colleagues did get irritable with the public. It can be a very stressful environment and a lot of the customers are demanding idiots, and very trying. I never got triggered by th...

    Patient Died in ER lobby

    I don't know why anybody is shocked by this. A lot of nurses like me have left the hospital setting. It's not necessarily the hospital itself at fault, there are many many factors pushing nurses out of Nursing. All these factors have been brewin...

    No Ethnic DIversity

    And the Mexican ones as well.
  9. I believe one of the reasons that led to this error is that the system is too cluttered with useless warnings and cumbersome obstacles to actually getting something done. The human brain can only take so many flashing lights. It's much like alarm fat...

    Oklahoma Hospital Shooting

    Is posting plans of violence illegal? I know facebook doesn't tolerate any hint about violence. I think a public service campaign might be in order. It could start educating the public just like they did during the terrorism scares in the early...

    Oklahoma Hospital Shooting

    Really? How interesting. I'll have to Google that. The public needs more education on being alert to this!

    Oklahoma Hospital Shooting

    https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Red_flag_law I had to look up what red flagging is. In theory it sounds like a good idea. According to the article there were some reduction of suicides by firearms, but it says in Connecticut there was also a ri...

    Leaving job after 7 months

    It sounds like management did back down and agree to let you orient later to L&D. I don't know why you didn't then offer to stay, since you love Moms and Babes so much. You sound a little naive about the workplace to me. Management needs to ...

    Dear Healthcare Leaders: Self-Care is Not the Answer

    My android phone allows me to selectively mute any number. That way you can just ignore any appeals to come in on your days off. In other words, you can ghost them.
