Cialis Compare Levitra Viagra

Cialis compare levitra viagra cherry

Cialis compare levitra viagra Oh, cialis compare levitra viagra my….Google put ads for Vioxx lawyers on the site… not exactly a match with my editorial opinions!

Cialis compare levitra viagra I’m finally getting my cape.

Cialis compare levitra viagra And a cap!

Cialis compare levitra viagra With an itty-bitty uniform and teeny-tiny white open-toed pumps.

Cialis compare levitra viagra I happened to pass by eBay and there were a TON of Barbie nursing outfits (circa 1961) just waiting for a bid.

Cialis compare levitra viagra I didn’t bid, cialis compare levitra viagra though. Cialis compare levitra viagra I’m smarter than that.

Cialis compare levitra viagra I went right for “Buy It Now!”.

Cialis compare levitra viagra The outfit comes with black-rimmed glasses, cialis compare levitra viagra presumably because nurses can’t look too glamourous. Cialis compare levitra viagra But Barbie has her pedicure showing with the open toes shoes, cialis compare levitra viagra and pumps no less.

Cialis compare levitra viagra I have wanted this outfit for approximately 40 years; it’s costing me the equivalent of four real uniforms.

Cialis compare levitra viagra What would we do without eBay?

******************************

Cialis compare levitra viagra There is a virtual bus stop in front of every emergency room and it disgorges its charges at regular intervals.

Cialis compare levitra viagra It runs 24 hours a day.

Cialis compare levitra viagra You can set your watch by its arrival and tell the time by the patients seeking care.

Cialis compare levitra viagra Here is what the night shift might receive….

Cialis compare levitra viagra 1:00 am: The Earache Hour

Cialis compare levitra viagra 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. Cialis compare levitra viagra Very disconcerting to the parents, cialis compare levitra viagra but fortunately easy to treat.

Cialis compare levitra viagra 2:00 am: The Croup Hour

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

Cialis compare levitra viagra 3:00 am: The Alcohol-Induced Head Injury Hour

Cialis compare levitra viagra Brisk bleeding head lacerations attached to intoxicated patients are the hallmark of this hour. Cialis compare levitra viagra They probably fell, cialis compare levitra viagra they may have been whacked, cialis compare levitra viagra but every head-injured drunk is a subdural hematoma until proven otherwise; the CT scanner is very busy. Cialis compare levitra viagra The ER rule for this hour is “Nice when drunk, cialis compare levitra viagra mean when sober.” These patients will urinate half a liter for every ounce of alcohol consumed, cialis compare levitra viagra while asleep (that’s before they recieve hydration in the department). Cialis compare levitra viagra The problem, cialis compare levitra viagra as a nurse would put it IF nursing diagnoses were used in real life, cialis compare levitra viagra “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.

Cialis compare levitra viagra 4 – 5:30 am: The Wee Hours

Cialis compare levitra viagra Patients are usually few and far between during these hours so the ER nurses study their procedure manuals, cialis compare levitra viagra work on their certifications and read every nursing journal they can. Cialis compare levitra viagra (That was for the benefit of my manager.) We actually read, cialis compare levitra viagra crochet, cialis compare levitra viagra knit, cialis compare levitra viagra listen to the radio, cialis compare levitra viagra have that fresh cup of coffee, cialis compare levitra viagra 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).

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

Cialis compare levitra viagra 5:30 am: The It’s-Hip-To-Be-Square Hour

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

Cialis compare levitra viagra 6:00 am: The Code Hour

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

Cialis compare levitra viagra 7:00 am: Hey-la, cialis compare levitra viagra Hey-la, cialis compare levitra viagra The Day Shift’s Back!

Cialis compare levitra viagra And because I don’t work days, cialis compare levitra viagra I don’t know their story. Cialis compare levitra viagra I’ll interview a few and see what their day is like and report back from the “frontlines”.

Cialis compare levitra viagra But the PM shift…….now THAT is a whole ‘nother story…..

Men's sexual health > cialis 20mg pills (generic) > 360 pills > $509.00 I’ll never be one of them because there won’t be any drugs. Men's sexual health > cialis 20mg pills (generic) > 360 pills > $509.00 Listening to Hugh Hewitt discuss the Vioxx verdict today cemented my belief that sanity has, men's sexual health > cialis 20mg pills (generic) > 360 pills > $509.00 indeed, men's sexual health > cialis 20mg pills (generic) > 360 pills > $509.00 left the jury system

Men's sexual health > cialis 20mg pills (generic) > 360 pills > $509.00 The plaintiff’s win is our collective loss. Men's sexual health > cialis 20mg pills (generic) > 360 pills > $509.00 By awarding one-quarter billion dollars in damages, men's sexual health > cialis 20mg pills (generic) > 360 pills > $509.00 the Vioxx jury ensured more than the plaintiff’s financial security. Men's sexual health > cialis 20mg pills (generic) > 360 pills > $509.00 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. Men's sexual health > cialis 20mg pills (generic) > 360 pills > $509.00 They have helped smother the incentive of research and development departments to develop new medications because of increasing financial vulnerability.

Men's sexual health > cialis 20mg pills (generic) > 360 pills > $509.00 Merck lost the case, men's sexual health > cialis 20mg pills (generic) > 360 pills > $509.00 but we are the ones who will pay. Men's sexual health > cialis 20mg pills (generic) > 360 pills > $509.00 When you receive your next prescription and you are paying a day’s wage for a two-week supply, men's sexual health > cialis 20mg pills (generic) > 360 pills > $509.00 remember this verdict. Men's sexual health > cialis 20mg pills (generic) > 360 pills > $509.00 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, men's sexual health > cialis 20mg pills (generic) > 360 pills > $509.00 remember this verdict. Men's sexual health > cialis 20mg pills (generic) > 360 pills > $509.00 When you are given a diagnosis for which no treatment is available because there has been no research in that area, men's sexual health > cialis 20mg pills (generic) > 360 pills > $509.00 remember this verdict.

Men's sexual health > cialis 20mg pills (generic) > 360 pills > $509.00 The obscene amount awarded in the recent case against Merck is another nail in the drug companies’ coffin of liability. Men's sexual health > cialis 20mg pills (generic) > 360 pills > $509.00 Until we legislate some form of protection against these unbelievable awards, men's sexual health > cialis 20mg pills (generic) > 360 pills > $509.00 the personal injury law firms will keep circling drug companies like vultures over an incapacitated animal.

Men's sexual health > cialis 20mg pills (generic) > 360 pills > $509.00 “Remember what the Dormouse said….
Feed your head…….”

Blood Pressure > Enalapril 5mg Pills > 180 Pills > $253.00

Antidepressants > remeron 15mg pills (generic) > 30 pills > $72.00 cherryamesseniornurseTruth be told, antidepressants > remeron 15mg pills (generic) > 30 pills > $72.00 I became a nurse so that I could wear THE CAP!

Antidepressants > remeron 15mg pills (generic) > 30 pills > $72.00 Oh, antidepressants > remeron 15mg pills (generic) > 30 pills > $72.00 how I wanted that cap.

Antidepressants > remeron 15mg pills (generic) > 30 pills > $72.00 I would make one out of paper and pin it to my head, antidepressants > remeron 15mg pills (generic) > 30 pills > $72.00 posing in front of the bathroom mirror with a towel around my shoulders for my cape.

Antidepressants > remeron 15mg pills (generic) > 30 pills > $72.00 I never did have a cape, antidepressants > remeron 15mg pills (generic) > 30 pills > $72.00 but I definitely wore that little piece of starched white fabric. Antidepressants > remeron 15mg pills (generic) > 30 pills > $72.00 Our caps had green and gold ribbons arching across the top. Antidepressants > remeron 15mg pills (generic) > 30 pills > $72.00 I may have been your average Jane, antidepressants > remeron 15mg pills (generic) > 30 pills > $72.00 but I felt like Miss America when it was on my head.

******************************

Antidepressants > remeron 15mg pills (generic) > 30 pills > $72.00 Of course, antidepressants > remeron 15mg pills (generic) > 30 pills > $72.00 I graduated in 1978 (at the ripe old age of 20!), antidepressants > remeron 15mg pills (generic) > 30 pills > $72.00 and with the expansion of nursing care came the end of the cap-wearing tradition.

Antidepressants > remeron 15mg pills (generic) > 30 pills > $72.00 I wore mine for about 6 months. Antidepressants > remeron 15mg pills (generic) > 30 pills > $72.00 Years of nursing fantasies, antidepressants > remeron 15mg pills (generic) > 30 pills > $72.00 based in the 1940s world of Cherry Ames, antidepressants > remeron 15mg pills (generic) > 30 pills > $72.00 were quickly supplanted by the reality of the profession.

Antidepressants > remeron 15mg pills (generic) > 30 pills > $72.00 My cap was the first casualty.

******************************

Antidepressants > remeron 15mg pills (generic) > 30 pills > $72.00 Fast forward to 2000.

Antidepressants > remeron 15mg pills (generic) > 30 pills > $72.00 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!

Antidepressants > remeron 15mg pills (generic) > 30 pills > $72.00 Yeah, antidepressants > remeron 15mg pills (generic) > 30 pills > $72.00 baby!

Antidepressants > remeron 15mg pills (generic) > 30 pills > $72.00 Now, antidepressants > remeron 15mg pills (generic) > 30 pills > $72.00 the last time I had actually seen my cap had been in 1979, antidepressants > remeron 15mg pills (generic) > 30 pills > $72.00 carefully preserved in a halo of dust under the front seat of an old green Volkswagon bug I no longer owned.

Antidepressants > remeron 15mg pills (generic) > 30 pills > $72.00 Where on earth would I find another one – specifically one that looked like my nursing school cap. Antidepressants > remeron 15mg pills (generic) > 30 pills > $72.00 I mean, antidepressants > remeron 15mg pills (generic) > 30 pills > $72.00 you can’t just wear any cap, antidepressants > remeron 15mg pills (generic) > 30 pills > $72.00 you have to wear your school cap!

Antidepressants > remeron 15mg pills (generic) > 30 pills > $72.00 I was determined to find it.

******************************

Antidepressants > remeron 15mg pills (generic) > 30 pills > $72.00 I found it.

Antidepressants > remeron 15mg pills (generic) > 30 pills > $72.00 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.

Antidepressants > remeron 15mg pills (generic) > 30 pills > $72.00 I carefully glued the forest green and gold grograin ribbons to the top, antidepressants > remeron 15mg pills (generic) > 30 pills > $72.00 pinned the cap to my head and posed in front of the bathroom mirror. Antidepressants > remeron 15mg pills (generic) > 30 pills > $72.00 Only this time I didn’t wear a towel for a cape; it was the 21st century, antidepressants > remeron 15mg pills (generic) > 30 pills > $72.00 after all, antidepressants > remeron 15mg pills (generic) > 30 pills > $72.00 and I was more like a middle-aged Mrs. Antidepressants > remeron 15mg pills (generic) > 30 pills > $72.00 America.

Antidepressants > remeron 15mg pills (generic) > 30 pills > $72.00 The old thrill was still there.

Antidepressants > remeron 15mg pills (generic) > 30 pills > $72.00 The next night we faced the patients in traditional white uniforms with caps carefully anchored.

******************************

Antidepressants > remeron 15mg pills (generic) > 30 pills > $72.00 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).

Antidepressants > remeron 15mg pills (generic) > 30 pills > $72.00 The older docs loved it. Antidepressants > remeron 15mg pills (generic) > 30 pills > $72.00 The PM shift made fun of us (Nancy Nurse? Excuse me, antidepressants > remeron 15mg pills (generic) > 30 pills > $72.00 my name is Ames…..Cherry Ames…..).

Antidepressants > remeron 15mg pills (generic) > 30 pills > $72.00 But, antidepressants > remeron 15mg pills (generic) > 30 pills > $72.00 the patients! The patients respected us!

Antidepressants > remeron 15mg pills (generic) > 30 pills > $72.00 Their behavior was astounding. Antidepressants > remeron 15mg pills (generic) > 30 pills > $72.00 They spoke to us in lower tones. Antidepressants > remeron 15mg pills (generic) > 30 pills > $72.00 They spoke to us respectfully. Antidepressants > remeron 15mg pills (generic) > 30 pills > $72.00 They addressed us as “Nurse” and not “hey you” or “uh…where’s the doc?”

Antidepressants > remeron 15mg pills (generic) > 30 pills > $72.00 The age of the patient didn’t matter, antidepressants > remeron 15mg pills (generic) > 30 pills > $72.00 even teenagers who probably never even knew that RNs wore caps mentioned them. Antidepressants > remeron 15mg pills (generic) > 30 pills > $72.00 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.

Antidepressants > remeron 15mg pills (generic) > 30 pills > $72.00 I decided to try an experiment and perhaps write a column on our experiences.

******************************

Antidepressants > remeron 15mg pills (generic) > 30 pills > $72.00 While my colleagues went back to their normal scrub uniforms, antidepressants > remeron 15mg pills (generic) > 30 pills > $72.00 I worked in white, antidepressants > remeron 15mg pills (generic) > 30 pills > $72.00 with my cap for a week.

Antidepressants > remeron 15mg pills (generic) > 30 pills > $72.00 We noticed that I was the go-to person if the patients had a question because I was easily identifiable as a nurse. Antidepressants > remeron 15mg pills (generic) > 30 pills > $72.00 The deferential attitude of the patients persisted.

Antidepressants > remeron 15mg pills (generic) > 30 pills > $72.00 I then went back to wearing whatever color scrubs I wanted, antidepressants > remeron 15mg pills (generic) > 30 pills > $72.00 but always with the cap. Antidepressants > remeron 15mg pills (generic) > 30 pills > $72.00 In fact, antidepressants > remeron 15mg pills (generic) > 30 pills > $72.00 I got so used to having it on that I would forget I was wearing it, antidepressants > remeron 15mg pills (generic) > 30 pills > $72.00 so there was no impact on my behavior by this time.

Antidepressants > remeron 15mg pills (generic) > 30 pills > $72.00 The patient behavior did not change! I was treated differently when I wore the cap; the patients respected what the cap stood for.

Antidepressants > remeron 15mg pills (generic) > 30 pills > $72.00 I was floored.

******************************

Antidepressants > remeron 15mg pills (generic) > 30 pills > $72.00 Patients are bombarded with so many different personnel when they are in the ER, antidepressants > remeron 15mg pills (generic) > 30 pills > $72.00 it’s often hard to keep track of who is a nurse vs. Antidepressants > remeron 15mg pills (generic) > 30 pills > $72.00 a lab tech vs. Antidepressants > remeron 15mg pills (generic) > 30 pills > $72.00 a housekeeper vs. Antidepressants > remeron 15mg pills (generic) > 30 pills > $72.00 the doctor.

Antidepressants > remeron 15mg pills (generic) > 30 pills > $72.00 Wearing a nursing cap gave my patients an anchor, antidepressants > remeron 15mg pills (generic) > 30 pills > $72.00 a visual reminder of who I was and what my responsibilities were. Antidepressants > remeron 15mg pills (generic) > 30 pills > $72.00 However increasing number of male nurses entering the profession render nursing caps inappropriate. Antidepressants > remeron 15mg pills (generic) > 30 pills > $72.00 They say caps were a magnet for infection. Antidepressants > remeron 15mg pills (generic) > 30 pills > $72.00 They would get pulled off in the ICU. Antidepressants > remeron 15mg pills (generic) > 30 pills > $72.00 Caps weren’t practical.

Antidepressants > remeron 15mg pills (generic) > 30 pills > $72.00 Of course, antidepressants > remeron 15mg pills (generic) > 30 pills > $72.00 all that is true.

Antidepressants > remeron 15mg pills (generic) > 30 pills > $72.00 But I sure loved wearing it.

Antidepressants > remeron 15mg pills (generic) > 30 pills > $72.00 (Addendum: I continued to wear the cap until I changed jobs soon after the experiment. Antidepressants > remeron 15mg pills (generic) > 30 pills > $72.00 The cap again found its way under the front seat, antidepressants > remeron 15mg pills (generic) > 30 pills > $72.00 this time of my Saturn. Antidepressants > remeron 15mg pills (generic) > 30 pills > $72.00 And the column I never wrote? It turned into a blog!)
