    Vaccination Mandating

    Hoosier, agree with you all the way. I'll take the unvaxxed COVID patients if they take all the non-compliant CHF/COPD/Dialysis, etc. patients. I'll have the smaller number of patients on a consistent day in and day out basis. As an actual example of...

    I'm Done

    I will have to respectfully disagree with your opinion regarding no nursing shortage before COVID. The facts say otherwise regarding the nursing shortage existing LONG before COVID. COVID may have exacerbated the issue, but it is not the cause. Looki...

    I'm Done

    And oh by the way. those high $$$ agency nurses are not just excess nurses sitting around waiting for a job opening and then taking jobs. No, they are ICU, ED, Med-Surg nurses in my and your hospitals that see all that $$$ and say "If I am going to p...

    Changing the Conversation about COVID to Get More People Vaccinated

    I am assuming you are vaccinated. If that is the case, the chances are very low that you will get truly sick from COVID. That is what the CDC, the medical experts at leading health institutions, and the manufacturers of the vaccines tell us. That is ...

    Can I still be a great nurse without prior CNA experience?

    Over course you can. The CNA experience would certainly have been a benefit, but that is not what makes one a great nurse. A genuine drive and desire to be your best is required. Neve settle for good enough. Seek a mentor that looks out for your int...

    Dilutions/ Med Info

    When in doubt, consult the Pharm D. He or she is the expert who is qualified to answer the question regarding medications and their administration. I know in our EMR system EPIC I can look in the MAR for each medication for administration questions ...

    Changing the Conversation about COVID to Get More People Vaccinated

    I disagree with anti-vaxxers who argue about efficacy and safety of vaccines including the COVID vaccines. I am currently waiting for my booster. That said, I am curious as to how they deprive anyone of their freedom and body autonomy? Can you elabor...

    Vaccination Mandating

    And again, to make sure I say it on the front end, I am a supporter of the vaccine and am vaccinated. The CDC data doesn't seem to support your statement that COVID is a leading cause of death in children. The CDC shows 2020-2021 595 deaths...

    Vaccination Mandating

    Would love to see your source for "Covid infection is currently one of the leading causes of death in children" because I don't think the current data supports that. I am now looking to see if there is any such data to back your claim up since you pr...

    Vaccination Mandating

    Two things. I got 20 points for my post to you. I don't know what that means, but I am smiling :-). Second, You didn't tell me to die? Here is the direct quote: "If you want to reduce your risk to 0 (and you obviously are looking for something a...

    It's also responsible to provide all available information so that Joe Public see that no one is trying to hide anything and therefore can trust the information he gets from folks who are professional. To summarily dismiss out of hand can also be mis...

    Vaccination Mandating

    Plausible is a magic word? This information is from the CDC. My point was simply to provide the information available that shows there are valid concerns about the vaccine. Nothing more, nothing less. I got it from the CDC. If that bothers you, that ...

    The following is from the CDC website: For public awareness and in the interest of transparency, CDC is providing timely updates on the following serious adverse events of interest: Anaphylaxis after COVID-19 vaccination is rare and has occ...

    How many unvaccinated coworkers are you aware of?

    Actually, yes, you were "talking to me" as your response was directly linked to my post, in which I referenced Merck's new anti-viral. Jeez, and you call people irrational and illogical in other posts. How about you look in the mirror and check yours...

    How many unvaccinated coworkers are you aware of?

    I sure don't. And it does not have to be a military organization to do that. It's not about patriotism either. Did I even mention that word? Does it even appear in the dictionary next to camaraderie? As I pointed out, it's not about the organization,...
