    How Does This End?

    Or option four, continue to stick their fingers in their ears going "lalalalala I cant hear anyone"

    Radonda Vaught Fatal Error Case Timeline

    The board of nursing absolutely dropped the ball by deciding that no further action was needed. This nurse bypassed multiple safety checks and administered a drug that meant the patient died suffocating while fully conscious

    I can't believe this - wearing a mask during the test?

    How do you think you will cope when you have to wear a mask for an entire 8 or 12 hour shift? Why are you that uncertain in your nursing knowledge you think having to wear a mask for a few hours is going to stop you from doing your best You live in a country with over 2 million infected with covid, and over 110,000 dead. Many states are showing a marked resurgence in infection rates.
  4. Interestingly enough when I Google it, I come across several articles stating how Tanya McDowell had committed several other offenses which is why she ended up with a harsher sentence, somehow there arent any justifications for Felicity Huffman
  5. Its very much a race issue. People of colour are much more likey to get much harder prison sentences than their white counterparts https://repository.law.umich.edu/cgi/viewcontent.cgi?article=2413&context=articles page 1 and 2 are a good start https://edition.cnn.com/2020/06/08/us/us-police-floyd-protests-country-comparisons-intl/index.html The stats show that police are four times more likely to use force on people of colour than they are on people who are white Black men are 3 times more likely to die from police misuse of force when in custody https://edition.cnn.com/2016/12/20/health/black-men-killed-by-police/index.html The statistics do not support your assertion that white people are more likely than black people to die in police custody
  6. its not remotely enough, when dealing with hundreds of years of instituionalised racism. In discussion with a student nurse this week, she had been told that as a person of colour she could not expect to get good marks in school In 2020!🤨
  7. Could you mention some of those please? And site some sources that suggest the majority of deaths in custody actually happen to white people

    Could the police learn something from nurses?

    Like how those cops dehumanised George Floyd? By kneeling on his neck for 8 minutes and 46 seconds. And three of those minutes were after he had no pulse.

    Could the police learn something from nurses?

    Just a random aside I had a student nurse tell me this week as a person of colour they shouldnt expect to get top marks. In 2020. We had another situation where at my nephews school where a teacher went around pulling down #blacklivesmatter posters

    I heard someone say that POTUS is not the beginning of the problem. And I agree with that because this problem is deep seated and entrenched and been there long before current POTUS and unless things change significantly long after The man who shot up two mosques last year, killed 51 worshippers and wounded another 50 named Donald Trump as one of his heros. POTUS is currently doing the equivalent of trying to put out a forrest fire by using gasoline instead of water
  11. The OP is in Australia, like NZ we have an upper limit of 4g paracetamol a day. Not uncommon to see charting as 1g TDS and 1g PRN once daily

    Ethical Issues

    In NZ, I dont know if she would get fired, however there could be a case taken by nursing council for professional misconduct,. The code of conduct has something to do with nurses justifying public trust in the profession

    LTC Residents and Workers Face Tragedy

    Some of the biggest clusters in NZ were from two rest homes. The places are like ginormous big petrie dishes. I have seen it happen with norovirus, unless we put units into isolation, it goes from one end of the home to the next There is some controversy here at the moment because the MOH is refusing to test patients moving out from acute hospitals to long term care. Which is dumb given that one infected patient could make for many more. I worked in one place that got shut down due to one patient with norovirus, admitted from an acute hospital ward that had noro. The acute hospital didn't tell the rest home and lo and behold it spread like wildfire

    600 Dr’s Write a Letter to President

    What could the US have done differently? Locked it down properly from the get go. The half assed and incomplete measures IMO did more harm than good. NZ had four weeks in level four lock down, and have been at level 2 for almost 2 weeks and yes the enconomy is suffering, however when one looks at our statistics only death toll of 20, currently we've been free of new infections for around 8 days, 1 active case which I dont think is in hospital. What we have now is lots of people going "we over reacted, it wasnt as bad as all that, bla blah, blah" its very easy to say that when as a country we squashed the curve The reality is before we went into the four week lock down the numbers of infected were doubling every 1-2 days and statistical modeling showed that the death toll would have been in the thousands. It sucks for the families of the 20 people who died, however its easier to deal with than over 100,000 and making almost a third of the total death toll from covid19 One of our ex primeministers nailed it when she said "economies recover, dead people dont"

    Blunt Fill Needles for IM injections?

    You come at me with a blunt fill needle attached to the syringe, we are going to be having words. And no you won't be giving me the I'm think about the name "blunt FILL needle" look at the end of your blunt fill needle and think about the consequences of jamming it into someones muscle

    Nursing Is No Longer Worth It

    I've been a nurse for eight years now. Sure, there are things that drive me up the wall overall its been a good career decision. I do wonder if being a nurse in a captialist profit driven health service is different to working in a single payer system Sure, I go to work and do the best job I can do, at the end of the day my wellbeing comes before my employer and if I need to I'll phone in sick. I dont understand this whole matyr thing
