  1. Hi everyone, Thanks for your responses. I left hospital nursing and won't look back. I will be looking for a new home health job. I enjoy the work, unfortunately my employer was going through financial difficulties that I have no control over so I...
  2. What to do about DNP and flu shot?

    Wow, I guess the attack is on me now. I only tried to respond in a kind manner to someones question! And to the person that asked me why I called it a "required government injection" is because I am required to take it and it is manufactured by the...
  3. What to do about DNP and flu shot?

    I am really sorry that so many people left rather rude comments to your post. I can understand someones hesitance to just accept a required injection. As a matter of fact if someone would have told me 20 years ago that I would be accepting a requir...
  4. Addressing the Predicted Nursing Shortage

    Well, that is the reason I left hospital nursing. I felt like one of those plate jugglers at the circus. I was under so much stress I had to start taking medication. Finally I had to leave for my own sake. You are right on track!
  5. Who wants to hire a graduate nurse at 55?

    "Hmmm? I can see how this can happen. Any suggestions on how one can present oneself as a nearly blank slate? Interesting... Thanks for your thoughts." I started my nursing career at 48. I trimmed my resume to just highlights of my pre-nursing car...
  6. Thanks Caliotter3. You're right. I am concerned about what will happen to my patients but my caseload is low right now so why add to it.
  7. Is home health that bad?

    Addressing the charting part of home health. I try to do most of my charting in the home as I am speaking to the patients. I do my medicine reconciliation, check for med interactions, document my vitals and assessment questions while I talk to the ...

    Well all I can say is that I live in Florida and I lived through hurricane Irma and many other hurricanes. I do have an elderly mother and she was without power for 1 week in the aftermath of that hurricane. I evacuated her myself at my own expense...

  11. Nurses Charged in Deaths of 12 Nursing Home Residents

    So we criminally prosecute the 4 nurses who were working that day with a patient nurse ratio of at least 35:1 ???? There are a lot of people who "should" have done something but the ones that finally called 911 are the ones we ARE prosecuting!
  12. Nurses Charged in Deaths of 12 Nursing Home Residents

    Also where is the Florida Nursing Board on this issue. Do they refuse to protect us or provide any legislative protection bills for healthcare workers who are caught up in disaster situations? Are we just out there with our hineys hanging out when ...
  13. Nurses Charged in Deaths of 12 Nursing Home Residents

    I am so tired of the State Attorneys criminally prosecuting people who show up! If you are a deadbeat employee who disappears when disaster strikes then you live to see another day. Lets not forget, the employees who showed up were working under th...
  14. Nurses Charged in Deaths of 12 Nursing Home Residents

    What about the patient families. Sometimes it seems like the patients families don't want any responsibility except to hire an attorney and collect a check when something goes wrong. Why didn't family members pick up their loved ones? I know I wou...
  15. Do you have a side hustle?

    Wow Hosier that's a great idea about the dog safety! I could extend that out to horse safety and how the properly handle small animals like rabbits and chicks. And of course hand washing!
