    You can use this on new nurses when offering constructive criticism. 
    "Wait Snowflake,  this may trigger you,  but you pulled the wrong med out.  See, it's a paralytic. The order says Versed. Don't forget the 5 rights!"

    I thought the acceptable social norm was to preface a potentially offensive remark by saying "I don't mean to offend you, but..." or "Please don't take this personally,  but..."
    Then proceed to say your offensive remark.

    Emergent got a reaction from Daisy4RN in Bring back our childhood diseases!   
    The wife of White House communications chief Bill Shine said Wednesday that childhood diseases such as measles “keep you healthy & fight cancer.”
    In a series of tweets echoing anti-vaccination views she’s espoused publicly for years, Darla Shine lamented the fact her children had received the MMR vaccine, which guards against measles, mumps and rubella. She added that people of her generation – the Baby Boomers – were healthier now because they had measles as children.
    “I had the #Measles #Mumps #ChickenPox as a child and so did every kid I knew – Sadly my kids had #MMR so they will never have the life long natural immunity I have,” Shine tweeted,adding, “Come breathe on me!”

    Emergent got a reaction from mtnNurse., BSN in Nurses Call the Governor of Tennessee   
    The video by the YouTube doctor compared this case to the NP who left her baby in her car on a hot day at work.  It's the danger of being on autopilot. 
    I personally think it's more common in our modern age. For instance,  all the warnings, steps, computer processes definately cause me to be less focused on the here and now, and more focused on the technology that often seems like an obstacle course to navigate through. 
    I remember the days of paper MARs and a simpler process that allowed me to be more thoughtful.

    Emergent got a reaction from Daisy4RN in Did FDR have Guillain-Barré?   
    I've been binging on documentaries on Netflix this winter. Did you all know that FDR most likely did not have Polio, but instead Guillain-Barre ?
    He was an entirely amazing man. Just watched The Wheelchair President.  The White House doctor was pretty substandard and medicine had very few tools in its arsenal.  When he collapsed before he died, they didn't even call an ambulance.

    That's funny, although,  the workplace is a bad place to talk about religion or politics. That's good manners. 
    BTW, the free speech clause of the constitution only refers to protection from the government. It doesn't give us a carte blanche in every situation.

    Emergent reacted to OnOn2NICU in Whiskey peg tube flush?   
    When my grandmother was in an ALF, she had an order for Vodka, I believe she was allowed 2oz TID. She loved her bloody marys. She was a lifelong alcoholic and a big time smoker. She had no other major health issues. I asked to have her body donated to the local medical school when she passed because she should have had liver disease, HBP and other issues the way she drank and smoke. I was overruled by the rest of the family though. 

    ETA: We provided the vodka for her, portioned out, she liked Skky. The home would take it and store it in the med room.

    “I don’t mean to trigger you, but...” 
    “Please don’t take this triggerly, but...”
    So what they’re saying is using the word trigger in a sentence before making the remark is license to offend people?  -or the word trigger inherently is calming?  “Excuse me but why don’t you just trigger down.”  🤔 #weird

    I agree that the whole idea of someone being triggered has got out of hand. Of course nobody should purposefully offend others and if they do they are a jerk. That being said, we are all human and will offend others by way of simple human nature (unintentional), simple misunderstanding,  or by having a different opinion (sometimes based on life hx etc).  I am afraid our society has lost the ability to suck it up and move on. Instead the "triggered" become "victims" who need compensation in one form or another. Schools, and esp. colleges, are supposed to be the place of learning how to hear other points of view, discuss them, learn from each other, and move on, whether you agree or disagree doesn't really matter, the point should be to at least hear and truly consider anothers opinion/point of view. The word trigger, IMO, also sort of implies that the "triggered" has no say so in being triggered (ot their reponse to the trigger) when in fact of course they do. I remember my parents telling me, and me telling my kids to just suck it up, ignore it, whatever, not every insult/offense (real or imagined) needs to be dwelt on. People have lived for how long without having to give a trigger warning, come on now people, get a grip!
    I also would like a T-shirt!!

    They are required to report a death directly due to a medical error.  
    Apparently...they did not...you'll have to read down on this article.  The Board of Directors will probably be terminating a ton of people responsible for it as well.  They won't have a choice.

    This is truly a multi-level failure. It would seem the nurse and the institution failed the patient. Even if not agreeing to the same level of failure. I mean, who do you trust? As a patient?  As an employee?  Yikes.

    Well, there's another failure.  I think it's evident that the hospital tried to cover this up. 
    But, eventually it did come out. This gal only got suspended from her new job when she was arrested.
