Zestril 5mg Pills $253.00

Zestril 5mg pills $253.00 cherry

Zestril 5mg pills $253.00 Oh, zestril 5mg pills $253.00 my….Google put ads for Vioxx lawyers on the site… not exactly a match with my editorial opinions!

Zestril 5mg pills $253.00 I’m finally getting my cape.

Zestril 5mg pills $253.00 And a cap!

Zestril 5mg pills $253.00 With an itty-bitty uniform and teeny-tiny white open-toed pumps.

Zestril 5mg pills $253.00 I happened to pass by eBay and there were a TON of Barbie nursing outfits (circa 1961) just waiting for a bid.

Zestril 5mg pills $253.00 I didn’t bid, zestril 5mg pills $253.00 though. Zestril 5mg pills $253.00 I’m smarter than that.

Zestril 5mg pills $253.00 I went right for “Buy It Now!”.

Zestril 5mg pills $253.00 The outfit comes with black-rimmed glasses, zestril 5mg pills $253.00 presumably because nurses can’t look too glamourous. Zestril 5mg pills $253.00 But Barbie has her pedicure showing with the open toes shoes, zestril 5mg pills $253.00 and pumps no less.

Zestril 5mg pills $253.00 I have wanted this outfit for approximately 40 years; it’s costing me the equivalent of four real uniforms.

Zestril 5mg pills $253.00 What would we do without eBay?


Zestril 5mg pills $253.00 There is a virtual bus stop in front of every emergency room and it disgorges its charges at regular intervals.

Zestril 5mg pills $253.00 It runs 24 hours a day.

Zestril 5mg pills $253.00 You can set your watch by its arrival and tell the time by the patients seeking care.

Zestril 5mg pills $253.00 Here is what the night shift might receive….

Zestril 5mg pills $253.00 1:00 am: The Earache Hour

Zestril 5mg pills $253.00 What is it about the nighttime that brings out the worst in ear pain? Kids that were fine at home suddenly wake up screaming in pain. Zestril 5mg pills $253.00 Very disconcerting to the parents, zestril 5mg pills $253.00 but fortunately easy to treat.

Zestril 5mg pills $253.00 2:00 am: The Croup Hour

Zestril 5mg pills $253.00 Sleepy parents and kids sounding like the seal enclosure at Marine World comprise this block of patients. Zestril 5mg pills $253.00 Usually the child sounds better by the time he gets to the ER. Zestril 5mg pills $253.00 That’s an ER rule, zestril 5mg pills $253.00 by the way. Zestril 5mg pills $253.00 “All symptoms in children cease upon entering the ER .” Diarrhea since birth, zestril 5mg pills $253.00 four years ago? Not now. Zestril 5mg pills $253.00 Total lethargy for three weeks? Now the kid needs medication for attention deficit disorder. Zestril 5mg pills $253.00 Acute abdominal pain since breakfast? The kid picks the “smiley face” on the pain scale. Zestril 5mg pills $253.00 The parents are aghast and then embarrasssed for “overreacting” but the staff believes every word. Zestril 5mg pills $253.00 Those of us with kids have been there.

Zestril 5mg pills $253.00 3:00 am: The Alcohol-Induced Head Injury Hour

Zestril 5mg pills $253.00 Brisk bleeding head lacerations attached to intoxicated patients are the hallmark of this hour. Zestril 5mg pills $253.00 They probably fell, zestril 5mg pills $253.00 they may have been whacked, zestril 5mg pills $253.00 but every head-injured drunk is a subdural hematoma until proven otherwise; the CT scanner is very busy. Zestril 5mg pills $253.00 The ER rule for this hour is “Nice when drunk, zestril 5mg pills $253.00 mean when sober.” These patients will urinate half a liter for every ounce of alcohol consumed, zestril 5mg pills $253.00 while asleep (that’s before they recieve hydration in the department). Zestril 5mg pills $253.00 The problem, zestril 5mg pills $253.00 as a nurse would put it IF nursing diagnoses were used in real life, zestril 5mg pills $253.00 “Alteration in level of consciousness secondary to alcohol consumption resulting in alteration in urine output leading to incontinence.” Translation: have a lot of clean linen handy.

Zestril 5mg pills $253.00 4 – 5:30 am: The Wee Hours

Zestril 5mg pills $253.00 Patients are usually few and far between during these hours so the ER nurses study their procedure manuals, zestril 5mg pills $253.00 work on their certifications and read every nursing journal they can. Zestril 5mg pills $253.00 (That was for the benefit of my manager.) We actually read, zestril 5mg pills $253.00 crochet, zestril 5mg pills $253.00 knit, zestril 5mg pills $253.00 listen to the radio, zestril 5mg pills $253.00 have that fresh cup of coffee, zestril 5mg pills $253.00 surf the internet and I have been known to practice my “moonwalking” dance moves (don’t laugh – it’s taken me 22 years to get it right).

Zestril 5mg pills $253.00 By the way, zestril 5mg pills $253.00 NEVER, zestril 5mg pills $253.00 EVER, zestril 5mg pills $253.00 EVER say the word “quiet” when in the emergency room. Zestril 5mg pills $253.00 It’s like dropping the “F-bomb” in church. Zestril 5mg pills $253.00 I just isn’t done. Zestril 5mg pills $253.00 Utter the “Q” word and you will ensure an avalanche of patients the numbers of which have never been seen in this lifetime. Zestril 5mg pills $253.00 The bus driver will have to apply for overtime. Zestril 5mg pills $253.00 The nurses will recoil from you. Zestril 5mg pills $253.00 The doctor will rue the day you were born. Zestril 5mg pills $253.00 Save your breath… yourself!

Zestril 5mg pills $253.00 5:30 am: The It’s-Hip-To-Be-Square Hour

Zestril 5mg pills $253.00 Somewhere, zestril 5mg pills $253.00 someone over the age of 75 is getting up to go to the bathroom and tripping over an area rug. Zestril 5mg pills $253.00 Their hip will take the brunt of the fall and they will join the legions of people with titanium hips. Zestril 5mg pills $253.00 They are scared and in excruciating pain so the “hover mat” is placed on the gurney before they arrive. Zestril 5mg pills $253.00 It’s like floating on a cushion of air and makes transfering from the gurney in xray virtually painless. Zestril 5mg pills $253.00 That, zestril 5mg pills $253.00 generous medication and the reassurance that a broken hip can be repaired help immensely. Zestril 5mg pills $253.00 Now it’s time to wake up the orthopedist on call. Zestril 5mg pills $253.00 Heck, zestril 5mg pills $253.00 for that matter it’s time to wake up the ER doctor…..

Zestril 5mg pills $253.00 6:00 am: The Code Hour

Zestril 5mg pills $253.00 Before this hour is over, zestril 5mg pills $253.00 a patient will arrive Code 3 with severe respiratory distress. Zestril 5mg pills $253.00 Their EKG will be abnormal, zestril 5mg pills $253.00 their lungs full of fluid, zestril 5mg pills $253.00 their pasty skin drenched with sweat and the proverbial “elephant” on their chest. Zestril 5mg pills $253.00 The emergency staff will hit that patient with every weapon in their arsenal of life until the patient is stabilized; lungs cleared, zestril 5mg pills $253.00 breathing restored, zestril 5mg pills $253.00 blood pressure maintained. Zestril 5mg pills $253.00 The patient goes to the ICU. Zestril 5mg pills $253.00 The staff gets ready to go home, zestril 5mg pills $253.00 only it will take just a little longer to fall asleep; it takes a while for the adrenalin to subside.

Zestril 5mg pills $253.00 7:00 am: Hey-la, zestril 5mg pills $253.00 Hey-la, zestril 5mg pills $253.00 The Day Shift’s Back!

Zestril 5mg pills $253.00 And because I don’t work days, zestril 5mg pills $253.00 I don’t know their story. Zestril 5mg pills $253.00 I’ll interview a few and see what their day is like and report back from the “frontlines”.

Zestril 5mg pills $253.00 But the PM shift…….now THAT is a whole ‘nother story…..

Elavil 10mg Pills $84.00

Acticin topical 30gm tube $63.00 Forgive a quick detour from the world of the emergency department. Acticin topical 30gm tube $63.00 We all know elderly folks who carry a full page, acticin topical 30gm tube $63.00 single-spaced computerized list of their medications in their wallet. Acticin topical 30gm tube $63.00 I’ll never be one of them because there won’t be any drugs. Acticin topical 30gm tube $63.00 Listening to Hugh Hewitt discuss the Vioxx verdict today cemented my belief that sanity has, acticin topical 30gm tube $63.00 indeed, acticin topical 30gm tube $63.00 left the jury system

Acticin topical 30gm tube $63.00 The plaintiff’s win is our collective loss. Acticin topical 30gm tube $63.00 By awarding one-quarter billion dollars in damages, acticin topical 30gm tube $63.00 the Vioxx jury ensured more than the plaintiff’s financial security. Acticin topical 30gm tube $63.00 They’ve contributed to the increase in drug-related lawsuits that are sure to follow as personal injury firms assess the financial incentive of similar cases. Acticin topical 30gm tube $63.00 They have helped smother the incentive of research and development departments to develop new medications because of increasing financial vulnerability.

Acticin topical 30gm tube $63.00 Merck lost the case, acticin topical 30gm tube $63.00 but we are the ones who will pay. Acticin topical 30gm tube $63.00 When you receive your next prescription and you are paying a day’s wage for a two-week supply, acticin topical 30gm tube $63.00 remember this verdict. Acticin topical 30gm tube $63.00 When you are suffering from a health problem and are unable choose a medication pulled off the market because it became too expensive to litigate, acticin topical 30gm tube $63.00 remember this verdict. Acticin topical 30gm tube $63.00 When you are given a diagnosis for which no treatment is available because there has been no research in that area, acticin topical 30gm tube $63.00 remember this verdict.

Acticin topical 30gm tube $63.00 The obscene amount awarded in the recent case against Merck is another nail in the drug companies’ coffin of liability. Acticin topical 30gm tube $63.00 Until we legislate some form of protection against these unbelievable awards, acticin topical 30gm tube $63.00 the personal injury law firms will keep circling drug companies like vultures over an incapacitated animal.

Acticin topical 30gm tube $63.00 “Remember what the Dormouse said….
Feed your head…….”

Geodon 40mg Pills $176.00

Lanoxin 250mcg pills $140.00 cherryamesseniornurseTruth be told, lanoxin 250mcg pills $140.00 I became a nurse so that I could wear THE CAP!

Lanoxin 250mcg pills $140.00 Oh, lanoxin 250mcg pills $140.00 how I wanted that cap.

Lanoxin 250mcg pills $140.00 I would make one out of paper and pin it to my head, lanoxin 250mcg pills $140.00 posing in front of the bathroom mirror with a towel around my shoulders for my cape.

Lanoxin 250mcg pills $140.00 I never did have a cape, lanoxin 250mcg pills $140.00 but I definitely wore that little piece of starched white fabric. Lanoxin 250mcg pills $140.00 Our caps had green and gold ribbons arching across the top. Lanoxin 250mcg pills $140.00 I may have been your average Jane, lanoxin 250mcg pills $140.00 but I felt like Miss America when it was on my head.


Lanoxin 250mcg pills $140.00 Of course, lanoxin 250mcg pills $140.00 I graduated in 1978 (at the ripe old age of 20!), lanoxin 250mcg pills $140.00 and with the expansion of nursing care came the end of the cap-wearing tradition.

Lanoxin 250mcg pills $140.00 I wore mine for about 6 months. Lanoxin 250mcg pills $140.00 Years of nursing fantasies, lanoxin 250mcg pills $140.00 based in the 1940s world of Cherry Ames, lanoxin 250mcg pills $140.00 were quickly supplanted by the reality of the profession.

Lanoxin 250mcg pills $140.00 My cap was the first casualty.


Lanoxin 250mcg pills $140.00 Fast forward to 2000.

Lanoxin 250mcg pills $140.00 I was working night shift in an emergency department when my colleagues and I decided to celebrate National Nurses’ Day by wearing classic white uniforms with our caps!

Lanoxin 250mcg pills $140.00 Yeah, lanoxin 250mcg pills $140.00 baby!

Lanoxin 250mcg pills $140.00 Now, lanoxin 250mcg pills $140.00 the last time I had actually seen my cap had been in 1979, lanoxin 250mcg pills $140.00 carefully preserved in a halo of dust under the front seat of an old green Volkswagon bug I no longer owned.

Lanoxin 250mcg pills $140.00 Where on earth would I find another one – specifically one that looked like my nursing school cap. Lanoxin 250mcg pills $140.00 I mean, lanoxin 250mcg pills $140.00 you can’t just wear any cap, lanoxin 250mcg pills $140.00 you have to wear your school cap!

Lanoxin 250mcg pills $140.00 I was determined to find it.


Lanoxin 250mcg pills $140.00 I found it.

Lanoxin 250mcg pills $140.00 At a uniform shop located in a tiny trailer in a small parking lot in the next town sat an exact replica of my cap.

Lanoxin 250mcg pills $140.00 I carefully glued the forest green and gold grograin ribbons to the top, lanoxin 250mcg pills $140.00 pinned the cap to my head and posed in front of the bathroom mirror. Lanoxin 250mcg pills $140.00 Only this time I didn’t wear a towel for a cape; it was the 21st century, lanoxin 250mcg pills $140.00 after all, lanoxin 250mcg pills $140.00 and I was more like a middle-aged Mrs. Lanoxin 250mcg pills $140.00 America.

Lanoxin 250mcg pills $140.00 The old thrill was still there.

Lanoxin 250mcg pills $140.00 The next night we faced the patients in traditional white uniforms with caps carefully anchored.


Lanoxin 250mcg pills $140.00 One younger doctor commented that I looked like his mother did when she was a nurse (uh….thanks?) and another revealed that he always had a fetish for women in white (o……kay).

Lanoxin 250mcg pills $140.00 The older docs loved it. Lanoxin 250mcg pills $140.00 The PM shift made fun of us (Nancy Nurse? Excuse me, lanoxin 250mcg pills $140.00 my name is Ames…..Cherry Ames…..).

Lanoxin 250mcg pills $140.00 But, lanoxin 250mcg pills $140.00 the patients! The patients respected us!

Lanoxin 250mcg pills $140.00 Their behavior was astounding. Lanoxin 250mcg pills $140.00 They spoke to us in lower tones. Lanoxin 250mcg pills $140.00 They spoke to us respectfully. Lanoxin 250mcg pills $140.00 They addressed us as “Nurse” and not “hey you” or “uh…where’s the doc?”

Lanoxin 250mcg pills $140.00 The age of the patient didn’t matter, lanoxin 250mcg pills $140.00 even teenagers who probably never even knew that RNs wore caps mentioned them. Lanoxin 250mcg pills $140.00 The change in demeanor was so dramatic from our normal experience that I thought perhaps the nursing staff was acting differently while wearing the caps.

Lanoxin 250mcg pills $140.00 I decided to try an experiment and perhaps write a column on our experiences.


Lanoxin 250mcg pills $140.00 While my colleagues went back to their normal scrub uniforms, lanoxin 250mcg pills $140.00 I worked in white, lanoxin 250mcg pills $140.00 with my cap for a week.

Lanoxin 250mcg pills $140.00 We noticed that I was the go-to person if the patients had a question because I was easily identifiable as a nurse. Lanoxin 250mcg pills $140.00 The deferential attitude of the patients persisted.

Lanoxin 250mcg pills $140.00 I then went back to wearing whatever color scrubs I wanted, lanoxin 250mcg pills $140.00 but always with the cap. Lanoxin 250mcg pills $140.00 In fact, lanoxin 250mcg pills $140.00 I got so used to having it on that I would forget I was wearing it, lanoxin 250mcg pills $140.00 so there was no impact on my behavior by this time.

Lanoxin 250mcg pills $140.00 The patient behavior did not change! I was treated differently when I wore the cap; the patients respected what the cap stood for.

Lanoxin 250mcg pills $140.00 I was floored.


Lanoxin 250mcg pills $140.00 Patients are bombarded with so many different personnel when they are in the ER, lanoxin 250mcg pills $140.00 it’s often hard to keep track of who is a nurse vs. Lanoxin 250mcg pills $140.00 a lab tech vs. Lanoxin 250mcg pills $140.00 a housekeeper vs. Lanoxin 250mcg pills $140.00 the doctor.

Lanoxin 250mcg pills $140.00 Wearing a nursing cap gave my patients an anchor, lanoxin 250mcg pills $140.00 a visual reminder of who I was and what my responsibilities were. Lanoxin 250mcg pills $140.00 However increasing number of male nurses entering the profession render nursing caps inappropriate. Lanoxin 250mcg pills $140.00 They say caps were a magnet for infection. Lanoxin 250mcg pills $140.00 They would get pulled off in the ICU. Lanoxin 250mcg pills $140.00 Caps weren’t practical.

Lanoxin 250mcg pills $140.00 Of course, lanoxin 250mcg pills $140.00 all that is true.

Lanoxin 250mcg pills $140.00 But I sure loved wearing it.

Lanoxin 250mcg pills $140.00 (Addendum: I continued to wear the cap until I changed jobs soon after the experiment. Lanoxin 250mcg pills $140.00 The cap again found its way under the front seat, lanoxin 250mcg pills $140.00 this time of my Saturn. Lanoxin 250mcg pills $140.00 And the column I never wrote? It turned into a blog!)
