  1. Yes! This 💯!
  2. Not super impressed with the article. Like others mentioned, I would have liked to see actual studies. But it does raise the question, if that's an assumption-that women are more likely to be hypochondriacs-then do doctors have that in the back of ...
  3. This is a personal story not one of my patients. I had severe Covid with respiratory failure in July 2020. I required home oxygen for 13 months. Within a few weeks of being discharged, I started walking (with my oxygen concentrator in a backpack)....
  4. It takes a new nurse a good year or more to start to feel like they know what they are doing and ER is an incredibly tough place to start. When you say mistakes, what kind of things are we talking about? Because there are mistakes and then there ar...

  14. My Covid Story: From the Other Side of the Bed

    I was PRN and did not accrue sick time. Forgive my ignorance, but what would that mean?
  15. My Covid Story: From the Other Side of the Bed

    I filed a WC claim. The hospital is a non subscriber to my state’s WC but has a private carrier. They denied my claim stating that 1) I used the wrong date. I was unsure whether to use the date of my 1st known exposure so I contacted HR and they t...
