Aldactone 25mg Pills $118.00

Aldactone 25mg pills $118.00 Ladies, aldactone 25mg pills $118.00 do you love your undies? Is your bra healthy for your budget?
Are you glad you can stop ironing your unmentionables? I have no doubt that this ad would engender massive amounts of protest if attempted today. Aldactone 25mg pills $118.00 Of course, aldactone 25mg pills $118.00 the bra would be an underwire push-up, aldactone 25mg pills $118.00 the bottom would be a thong and the model would be Shakira in a nurse’s cap with a navy blue cape. Aldactone 25mg pills $118.00 Of course, aldactone 25mg pills $118.00 they can’t be sexist so there would be a companion ad with Justin Timberlake extolling the virtues of STAT-n’-Strap, aldactone 25mg pills $118.00 the jock strap made for the guy who’s MAN enough to wear the title, aldactone 25mg pills $118.00 NURSE!

Aldactone 25mg pills $118.00 Ahem….Aside from underwear, aldactone 25mg pills $118.00 there is more to dressing for work than just putting on the uniform. Aldactone 25mg pills $118.00 What about all the adjuncts you need to be at your peak efficiency? The tools of the trade? The building blocks of patient care? Let us discuss these various items.

  • Your ID – you know, aldactone 25mg pills $118.00 the plastic badge with your name on it in big, aldactone 25mg pills $118.00 bold letters. Aldactone 25mg pills $118.00 Taping a photo of Catherine Zeta Jones over your photo is not allowed. Aldactone 25mg pills $118.00 I tried. Aldactone 25mg pills $118.00 It is common knowledge that ID cameras add fifty pounds. Aldactone 25mg pills $118.00 They do so!
  • Your stethoscope – You will occasionally be seen to grope at your chest, aldactone 25mg pills $118.00 wondering where it is. Aldactone 25mg pills $118.00 You get so used to wearing this that one day you forget to take it off at work and will wear it into the grocery store. Aldactone 25mg pills $118.00 You listen to your coughing child’s breath sounds and go to basketball/soccer/volleyball/football practice with it dangling from your neck. Aldactone 25mg pills $118.00 You will do this. Aldactone 25mg pills $118.00 At least twice.
  • In your right pocket:
    • Scissors. Aldactone 25mg pills $118.00 Not those dainty little silver “bandage scissors” that fit so neatly into the little pocket organizer you will never use and couldn’t cut the tip of a Barbie glove. Aldactone 25mg pills $118.00 Puh-lease! I’m talkin’ big ol’ trauma shears that will cut through leather. Aldactone 25mg pills $118.00 These go in your right pocket with…
    • A tiny calculator. Aldactone 25mg pills $118.00 For when the doctor orders 1/748th of the dose you have on hand.
    • Tape. Aldactone 25mg pills $118.00 Also in your right pocket. Aldactone 25mg pills $118.00 With a tiny fold made on the end so you don’t have to pick at it, aldactone 25mg pills $118.00 especially since they said you can’t wear acrylic nails anymore and you are a chronic nail biter and can’t get the tape to unroll naturally and it’s such a pain and…but I digress.
    • Notepad. Aldactone 25mg pills $118.00 Also known as a paper towel, aldactone 25mg pills $118.00 upon which you have written the last set of vitals for the patient in 8A, aldactone 25mg pills $118.00 the results of the urine dip in room 10 and the repeat pain measurement of the patient in 8B who was discharged 30 minutes ago but you haven’t had time to chart it yet.
    • Three quarters, aldactone 25mg pills $118.00 a dime and two pennies that you got as change for your coffee on your way in to work. Aldactone 25mg pills $118.00
    • Two Hershey’s kisses from the candy dish at the nurses’ station, aldactone 25mg pills $118.00 still wrapped but smooshy. Aldactone 25mg pills $118.00
  • In your left pocket:
    • Your precious pens!
      • Your wonderfully smooth writing, aldactone 25mg pills $118.00 gel-based, aldactone 25mg pills $118.00 royal blue Uniball writing utensils, aldactone 25mg pills $118.00 so associated with you that, aldactone 25mg pills $118.00 if found, aldactone 25mg pills $118.00 they are put in your box.
      • A red pen to mark orders you have completed on the doctor’s order sheet.
      • A black Sharpie. Aldactone 25mg pills $118.00 Because no nurse should ever be caught without a Sharpie. Aldactone 25mg pills $118.00 Their uses are too numerous to list here. Aldactone 25mg pills $118.00 Let’s just say that the one time you don’t have it, aldactone 25mg pills $118.00 you will need it.
    • Little plastic thingys that have your hospital’s code system, aldactone 25mg pills $118.00 fire system and Mission Statement written on them for easy reference. Aldactone 25mg pills $118.00 They are supposed to be on your nametag but they always fall off.
    • One Hershey’s Kiss. Aldactone 25mg pills $118.00 Wrapped and smooshy.
    • Your Palm Pilot. Aldactone 25mg pills $118.00 Until it drops out the second time and you go put it back in your purse.
  • On your shoes – shoe covers! Goodness only knows what you’re walking around on in an Emergency department. Aldactone 25mg pills $118.00 Blech!

Aldactone 25mg pills $118.00 That just about completes the outfitting of the typical ER nurse. Aldactone 25mg pills $118.00 I didn’t mention breast pockets because they are useless; bend over and everything falls out. Aldactone 25mg pills $118.00 Of the pocket. Aldactone 25mg pills $118.00 You could spread out the items by wearing cargo pants but who wants to wear those? Some of us don’t need any additional bulk at the thigh area. Aldactone 25mg pills $118.00 Same for those little pouches that you wear around your waist. Aldactone 25mg pills $118.00 They’re great!

Aldactone 25mg pills $118.00 If you have a body like Shakira…….

Gasex 100 Tablet Bottle $203.00

Singulair 10mg pills $191.00 What a sourpuss! How’d you like your Anacin delivered by this angel of mercy! She looks like she’s ready to administer that entire box per rectum. Singulair 10mg pills $191.00 How DARE you have a headache. Singulair 10mg pills $191.00 How DARE you make her call the doctor
after hours. Singulair 10mg pills $191.00 You. Singulair 10mg pills $191.00 Will. Singulair 10mg pills $191.00 Pay.

Singulair 10mg pills $191.00 Her textbook for Essentials of Nursing 101 must have been “The Patient as Enemy: The Nasty Nurse Model”.

Singulair 10mg pills $191.00 There are times in the Emergency department when even the most dedicated nurse can begin to feel that way. Singulair 10mg pills $191.00 The department is full. Singulair 10mg pills $191.00 You are holding three med/surg and two ICU patients until you can get orders/beds/nurses to move them up. Singulair 10mg pills $191.00 You’re down a nurse because of a sick call and just try to get coverage on a Saturday evening. Singulair 10mg pills $191.00 You have 8 people on the triage list and 14 sitting in the waiting room. Singulair 10mg pills $191.00 Every other hospital in your county is on ambulance diversion, singulair 10mg pills $191.00 which means you must take the ambulance traffic. Singulair 10mg pills $191.00 Dr. Singulair 10mg pills $191.00 Surgeon wants everything STAT for the appy and Dr. Singulair 10mg pills $191.00 Cardio is taking someone to the cath lab. Singulair 10mg pills $191.00 Now. Singulair 10mg pills $191.00 Ms. Singulair 10mg pills $191.00 Scratchy Throat wants to know how much longer it will be and Mr. Singulair 10mg pills $191.00 Groin Itch wants to leave without being seen. Singulair 10mg pills $191.00 Thank god you are working with Dr. Singulair 10mg pills $191.00 Efficient in the ER, singulair 10mg pills $191.00 but he’s yelling for the charts you haven’t had time to finish. Singulair 10mg pills $191.00 You have been running for six hours, singulair 10mg pills $191.00 you haven’t eaten for ten and more than likely you’ll be overtime because someone just called in for the night shift.

Singulair 10mg pills $191.00 In walks Mrs. Singulair 10mg pills $191.00 Mom with her three children, singulair 10mg pills $191.00 all under the age of four, singulair 10mg pills $191.00 all of them with fever, singulair 10mg pills $191.00 all of them to be seen.

Singulair 10mg pills $191.00 You want to scream. Singulair 10mg pills $191.00 You want to pull out your hair. Singulair 10mg pills $191.00 You want to laugh hysterically. Singulair 10mg pills $191.00 You want to burst into tears. Singulair 10mg pills $191.00 You want to yell at the top of your lungs, singulair 10mg pills $191.00 “NO FREAKIN’ WAY!”
That’s when you start to think of the patient as the enemy…….

Singulair 10mg pills $191.00 Instead, singulair 10mg pills $191.00 you smile, singulair 10mg pills $191.00 ask “How can I help you?” while you do quick visual check of all three kids, singulair 10mg pills $191.00 take down their names and point them to the waiting room to await triage.

Singulair 10mg pills $191.00 Why?

  • Because the patient is NOT the enemy. Singulair 10mg pills $191.00
  • Because the worst thing you can do to a patient is make them feel stupid, singulair 10mg pills $191.00 awkward or wrong for showing up.
  • Because it is not their fault that they happened to show up on your weekly “Day of Hell”.
  • Because they may not have the education/background/experience to know what they are dealing with.
  • Because your hospital has spent beaucoup bucks advertising and promoting your facility so that people WILL come in.
  • Because sighing and rolling your eyes is not professional behavior.

Singulair 10mg pills $191.00 There are many opportunities during the patients’ stay in the ER to discuss the fact that they may have had other options. Singulair 10mg pills $191.00 A call to their doctor. Singulair 10mg pills $191.00 An Urgent Care clinic close to where they live. Singulair 10mg pills $191.00 An appointment the next day. Singulair 10mg pills $191.00 I mention this when I discuss the discharge instructions.
I tell patients that, singulair 10mg pills $191.00 while we are always available, singulair 10mg pills $191.00 there are ways of accessing health care that are cheaper, singulair 10mg pills $191.00 easier and often more timely than waiting in an ER.

Singulair 10mg pills $191.00 The key to coming across in a caring way in the middle of “hell-shift” is to smile and focus. Singulair 10mg pills $191.00 Smile at the patient. Singulair 10mg pills $191.00 Focus on them when they are talking. Singulair 10mg pills $191.00 Don’t have one foot out the door while you answer their questions. Singulair 10mg pills $191.00 Be pleasant. Singulair 10mg pills $191.00 Acknowledge that it is busy but that you are there for them.

Singulair 10mg pills $191.00 It isn’t easy when you are tired and frazzled. Singulair 10mg pills $191.00 But I find that just acting this way helps me to feel that way. Singulair 10mg pills $191.00 It makes it a lot easier to get through the shift and your patients really appreciate it.

Singulair 10mg pills $191.00 Because no patient wants to feel like they are the enemy.

Coreg 6.25mg Pills $260.00

Retrovir 300mg pills $140.00 This is a great shot from an old Wyeth ad. Retrovir 300mg pills $140.00 Looks like an early rendition of a triage nurse. Retrovir 300mg pills $140.00 She is talking to the woman who rode off with Toto in the Wizard of Oz. Retrovir 300mg pills $140.00 She could use a whopping dose of Advil because you just know she is going to have a migraine at the end of the day. Retrovir 300mg pills $140.00 I love doing triage. Retrovir 300mg pills $140.00 Some people hate it. Retrovir 300mg pills $140.00 Some of my most exhausting shifts have been in that triage chair; I would sometimes have 45-50 people cross my desk in 8 hours. Retrovir 300mg pills $140.00 Some were easy, retrovir 300mg pills $140.00 clinical issues. Retrovir 300mg pills $140.00 The babies always took the most time as they needed weights, retrovir 300mg pills $140.00 rectal temps and, retrovir 300mg pills $140.00 for some crazy administrative reason, retrovir 300mg pills $140.00 measurements of their head circumference. Retrovir 300mg pills $140.00 And that’s after you have taken all seven layers off them. Retrovir 300mg pills $140.00 Then their socks. Retrovir 300mg pills $140.00 Under their booties. Retrovir 300mg pills $140.00 In the summer. Retrovir 300mg pills $140.00 With a fever. Retrovir 300mg pills $140.00 I could write an entire dissertation on the phobia of fever. Retrovir 300mg pills $140.00 But I would deal with 100 babies with fever before I would consider doing what I consider the most thankless job in nursing: being the manager of a nursing unit.

Retrovir 300mg pills $140.00 Nurse manager. Retrovir 300mg pills $140.00 Clinical Coordinator. Retrovir 300mg pills $140.00 Head Nurse. Retrovir 300mg pills $140.00 Whatever the title, retrovir 300mg pills $140.00 it’s a rough job. Retrovir 300mg pills $140.00 They must balance the needs of the nurses and the unit with the orders that come down from Administration. Retrovir 300mg pills $140.00 They take the brunt of patient complaints and angry doctors. Retrovir 300mg pills $140.00 They are expected to encourage, retrovir 300mg pills $140.00 counsel, retrovir 300mg pills $140.00 dicipline, retrovir 300mg pills $140.00 teach, retrovir 300mg pills $140.00 assess and evaluate their nurses who are taking care of the patients for whom they have the ultimate responsibility. Retrovir 300mg pills $140.00 They are expected at meetings, retrovir 300mg pills $140.00 they are expected to hold meetings. Retrovir 300mg pills $140.00 They pass along the edicts from Administration and deal with the objections of staff, retrovir 300mg pills $140.00 even if they agree that the change/rule/requirement is needless. Retrovir 300mg pills $140.00 They need to be open to staff and allow them to ventilate. Retrovir 300mg pills $140.00 They try to balance the personal needs of their staff to the staffing needs of the department, retrovir 300mg pills $140.00 often having to say “no” and then absorb the fallout.

Retrovir 300mg pills $140.00 And they are often paid less than the nurses they manage.

Retrovir 300mg pills $140.00 I’ve had many managers over the years. Retrovir 300mg pills $140.00 Some new, retrovir 300mg pills $140.00 some experienced. Retrovir 300mg pills $140.00 Some calm, retrovir 300mg pills $140.00 some hotheads. Retrovir 300mg pills $140.00 Some were born to be leaders and some just went through the motions. Retrovir 300mg pills $140.00 I actually took a job because I met a manager (and a Critical Care Educator) more enthusiastic about nursing than anyone I had ever met. Retrovir 300mg pills $140.00 I had a manager who was as close to super-woman as you could get with three departments at two facilities under her control and they ran like clockwork. Retrovir 300mg pills $140.00 There have been managers in small units that would bend over backwards to accomdate every request and managers at teaching hospitals who had so many nurses you were just one of the bunch and whose attitude was “sorry, retrovir 300mg pills $140.00 no-can-do”. Retrovir 300mg pills $140.00 I had managers who I could call if the night shift got nuts and managers I only saw every other month.

Retrovir 300mg pills $140.00 To most managers I was trouble-free staff and to a few I was their worst nightmare. Retrovir 300mg pills $140.00 (Let’s just say God help the manager who has to deal with a nurse going through severe, retrovir 300mg pills $140.00 depressive burnout.) Looking back at my relationships with various managers and now from the vantage point of maturity (I think), retrovir 300mg pills $140.00 I realize what a staff nurse needs to do to help their manager be a good manager:

  • Do your work to the best of your ability. Retrovir 300mg pills $140.00 That’s a given. Retrovir 300mg pills $140.00 If you are assigned a special project to help with department flow, retrovir 300mg pills $140.00 do it without being reminded. Retrovir 300mg pills $140.00 Keep your certifications up-to-date and make sure all appropriate copies are in your file. Retrovir 300mg pills $140.00 Keep your timecard correct. Retrovir 300mg pills $140.00 Make yours one less thing she has to deal with.
  • Keep in contact with your manager. Retrovir 300mg pills $140.00 Sometimes it’s not easy if you work the off-shifts, retrovir 300mg pills $140.00 but check in now and then to say hi. Retrovir 300mg pills $140.00 Ask how you’re doing. Retrovir 300mg pills $140.00 (This is not the same as your evaluation. Retrovir 300mg pills $140.00 Your evaluation should not be the time you find out there is a problem, retrovir 300mg pills $140.00 but often that is the only time you actually sit down with your manager). Retrovir 300mg pills $140.00 Have they noticed any areas you could improve? Don’t just assume that because nothing has been said that everything is okay. Retrovir 300mg pills $140.00 Oh, retrovir 300mg pills $140.00 and don’t try to do this on the run unless your manager has an open-door policy and is always available. Retrovir 300mg pills $140.00 Make an appointment.
  • Managers deal with problems and complaints. Retrovir 300mg pills $140.00 Constantly. Retrovir 300mg pills $140.00 From all quarters. Retrovir 300mg pills $140.00 Don’t have every encounter with your manager be a complaint-a-thon. Retrovir 300mg pills $140.00 The one thing you don’t want your manager thinking when they see you is “oh no…..”.
  • Of course there are appropriate times for voicing a dissenting opinion or making a complaint or asking for help with a problem. Retrovir 300mg pills $140.00 When meeting with your manager, retrovir 300mg pills $140.00
    • Have a couple of possible solutions in mind before you go in. Retrovir 300mg pills $140.00 You will come across as a problem solver (which you are) and will not come across as, retrovir 300mg pills $140.00 heaven forbid, retrovir 300mg pills $140.00 whining.
    • If you are reporting a problems with a doctor or staff member
      • Try to handle the issue with the person involved before involving your manager. Retrovir 300mg pills $140.00 This is not always an easy thing to do, retrovir 300mg pills $140.00 especially if you feel intimidated.
      • Document the problem as best you can. Retrovir 300mg pills $140.00 It’s hard for managers to get a handle on issues when they have no data.
  • Finally, retrovir 300mg pills $140.00 let your manager know that they are appreciated from time-to-time. Retrovir 300mg pills $140.00 Just a note to thank them for handling your time-card issue or for taking up Dr. Retrovir 300mg pills $140.00 Smartmouth’s temper-tantrum with the appropriate department. Retrovir 300mg pills $140.00 You get the idea. Retrovir 300mg pills $140.00 Yes, retrovir 300mg pills $140.00 it’s their job, retrovir 300mg pills $140.00 but everyone likes positive reminders that their everyday tasks are appreciated.

Retrovir 300mg pills $140.00 Boy, retrovir 300mg pills $140.00 there is no way on God’s Green Earth that I would take on a Head Nurse position (I like the term “Head Nurse”. Retrovir 300mg pills $140.00 I’m just old fashioned, retrovir 300mg pills $140.00 I guess). Retrovir 300mg pills $140.00 I learned early on I don’t have the temperment or the ability to handle that load. Retrovir 300mg pills $140.00 But this Indian appreciates a good Chief.

Retrovir 300mg pills $140.00 So here’s a tip of my nurse’s cap to the women and men of nursing management who run interference so that my job is easier. Retrovir 300mg pills $140.00 Thanks.
