    Stop the Silence...Violence Against Nurses

    It would be nice if machines were either in a container that was locked or had a security system where your thumb or doctors thumb were administrators that could unlock the device so that way no one can temper with it.

    Stop the Silence...Violence Against Nurses

    In a clinic, she was sprayed with lighter fluid and died? Did people just stand around and watch the fire eat away at her skin? No smoke detectors or ceiling things went off? No fire extinguisher nearby? No stop drop and roll? No one tried to put out the fire? She was literally that combustible? When the mentally disturbed patient walked in, did anyone see a big gas container and a lighter in their hand? Or did they just let them waltz on in? Btw, how did a mentally disturbed patient WALK IN a clinic? Why were they outside to begin with? If they were from another clinic? How did they get passed staff and security?

    Stop the Silence...Violence Against Nurses

    Admin is reluctant to use restraints? I thought it was doctor order to use restraints, not administration who sound like people who push pencils and file papers and don't have anything to do with patients except records...

    Stop the Silence...Violence Against Nurses

    I believe I read somewhere that nurses do have the right to a safe workplace. In the even that any employee is harmed should be protected by security. Something a medical workplace involving patients should have. If they don't, they're putting at risk a list of things within the facility besides nurses being beaten such as medical records, potential hostage crisis, weapons manufacturing using certain drugs or illnesses extracted from patients to create biochemical weapons, patient safety is at risk, etc. Families will want security for the facility if something happens to them. At any time I feel endanger of my life I'll either raise my voice or force my way to a phone and call police. Violence and mistreatment should not be part of the job. Quality of patient care shouldn't be watered down so low to the point that being beaten is okay. I'd file a complaint with Dept. of Labor and Human Resources. To me, violence in the workplace is the equivalent of a domestic violence in the home. Same thing.

    Student Resources: Nursing Math

    Can anybody explain to me if ALL parts of the nursing field require anything above Pre-calculus I? Finding the vector, using the formula, in something doesn't sound like something that is necessary for nursing school.
