    Fact or Fiction?  Masking and CO2 Dangers

    Was she the one ranting and raving at Trader Joe’s? For the duration she was screaming, if she wore the dang mask, she would’ve been in and out of there. Plus, her lungs sure did give her no issue while she was yelling. These people give me a headache. More than any mask.

    Patients testing Covid positive AFTER admission

    I’ve seen this - patients test negative in the ED, but test positive a few days later before their procedure. Meanwhile, nurses/CNA’s/transport/the meal lady/etc have been in their with surgical mask only. Scary. I just did my antibody test last week - negative. This after working on a COVID unit. I was so extremely careful, even off the floor. The procedure I took when I got home was specific but hopefully safe enough. I’m still not out in public too much. And I never not got out without a mask.

    Farewell Esme - In Loving Memory

    Oh, Esme. This hurts to read. She was a guiding force on these boards, one of the first to respond and a welcoming presence. Wherever she is, she’ll be a guiding force there too.

    Hazard Pay

    I received random hazard pay when I was on my COVID unit. 6 hours here, 3 hours there ... when I asked my NM, she said that it was management’s way of “trying.” Uh, OK?

    Temperature checks for Employees

    I got 92.4 the other day and they were content to let me sail right on by. I stood there for a sec and the lady was just staring right back at me ... Maybe she just was staring through me ... I’m a ghost and don’t know it.
  6. This is CT now: http://c-hit.org/2020/06/24/coronavirus-faqs-resources/ This was CT in April: https://www.CDC.gov/mmwr/volumes/69/wr/mm6915e4.htm Being part of the tri-state area, CT was hit hard. It boggles my ever loving mind that people here in the US won’t wear a mask. “Infringing on my rights” my sweet Aunt Fanny ... wearing a mask, and others wearing one, helps ensure that a mandatory quarantine isn’t altogether necessary, and allows an economy to start, function, and grow. I finally am back at my home base, as my COVID unit closed - we are now on to ONE main COVID unit in our hospital. We need to adjust to the pandemic that is still occurring, not ignore it so completely that 100,000’s more die. AHWTL - you sure don’t seem to understand the physiology and thus the complicated treatment associated with COVID patients. I can’t even answer your posts, they seem so out of touch.

    Wait, what? Am I actually agreeing with A Hit With The Ladies?

    Ah, but a few things. We are not in that thread. I did not see your sources until you mentioned them. You have cited nothing here. Now that I read through that thread, a point: your data is misleading. There is currently no accurate data base to quantify who is killed by the police each year, although attempts are indeed being made. This has been pointed out several times in the thread you mentioned and in other threads you have participated in; thus, it appears that you are the one having issues with the data not fitting perceived worldviews. Here are a few examples, quite evidence based, however you didn’t read them in its entirety the first time I posted them in a different thread. Perhaps you will now. https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0749379716303841 https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC6080222/ Maybe you can cease with the “logical fallacies” and be polite - it does nothing for the conversation.

    Coronavirus Second Wave?

    Well, if granny finds them she can point me in the right direction. I keep that N95 as pristine as possible in that brown bag and use for work only. My hairdresser of all people was the one who thought of me and bought me 5 face shields for work. Been using the same one since mid-May. Bless that woman.

    allnurses has Become so Politicized

    * Definition of racism 1: a belief that race is the primary determinant of human traits and capacities and that racial differences produce an inherent superiority of a particular race. versus * Definition of prejudice (1): preconceived judgment or opinion (2): an adverse opinion or leaning formed without just grounds or before sufficient knowledge b: an instance of such judgment or opinion c: an irrational attitude of hostility directed against an individual, a group, a race, or their supposed characteristics Yes, white people experience prejudice, discrimination, harassment. No doubt, it causes harm to the receiver. White people do not experience racism (or its popular “reverse racism” concept, I believe it’s called). There has always, always been an inherent imbalance of power between those with lighter skin color and POC. The systemic relationship of power, and thus privilege, is the key factor. Emergent - no one here has suggested that your feelings are “irrelevant.” In fact, people who have posted have been extremely supportive; several don’t agree, and have respectfully told you why. I believe that it is statements such as these that start a thread to derail, as feelings get hurt and egos get bruised, rather than the message received listened to (I mean, you asked?).

    Living as an older individual with comorbidities

    My son thinks Yellowstone erupting is the July event; I say if it goes, it’ll be the end of the year blow out. Our black lab passed away unexpectedly last week. I adored that animal; she was a kind soul, a heart of gold. I really hate this year.

    This is why these discussions are worth it. I feel heartened by reading this post, and lovingpeds as well.

    Will Protests Lead to More COVID Surges?

    Yeah, I’ll stand up to those darn pesky African American protestors and leave those patriotic white protestors be. Do you hear how you sound?

    Will Protests Lead to More COVID Surges?

    https://www.cbpp.org/research/housing/trump-administrations-proposed-rule-would-perpetuate-racist-and-discriminatory https://www.americanbar.org/groups/crsj/publications/human_rights_magazine_home/economic-justice/fair-housing-policy-under-the-trump-administration/ My bad, he didn’t suspend ... he completely revamped ... to the detriment of POC. Did you ever question why some cities didn’t submit the paperwork? No, pointing out that “poor neighbors need help” lacks substance because it’s a rinse-repeat reaction. Observe: Michael Brown, Tamir Rice ... “oh, we need to do something, (insert about neighborhoods/youth violence/more religion/etc) add thoughts and prayers” ... and? To me, I’m reading from your post “the poor blacks need our help!” That’s not the issue. It’s actually part of the problem.
