Viagra Info

Viagra info One of the most difficult skills I had to perfect in nursing school was Pepsi Pouring 101. Viagra info As new students, viagra info we began with non-carbonated beverages, viagra info namely Kool-Aid. Viagra info As our skills developed past the novice level, viagra info we moved onto Ovaltine (cold). Viagra info Those students showing a particular aptitude were allowed to serve their Ovaltine hot. Viagra info This was before microwaves, viagra info so it was quite labor intensive. Viagra info I’ll never forget the pride I felt the first time I was able to pour Pepsi for the waiting patients. Viagra info A nurse’s cap and an ice, viagra info cold Pepsi…doesn’t get any better than that!

Viagra info What happens when that kid on the couch who was just triaged for abdominal pain has to go for his appendectomy with a gut full of Pepsi? I guess if he aspirates it, viagra info the carbonation will keep his lungs inflated…..

Viagra info I’ve discovered many stereotypes of nursing during my travels through the internet. Viagra info I’ve discovered nurses as waitresses, viagra info nurses as whores (good heavens, viagra info be careful what you put in the search engine!), viagra info
and nurses as angels. Viagra info My favorite is the “nurse as waitress” genre. Viagra info I get teased about this at work. Viagra info We have boxed lunches available for our hypoglycemia patients and the turkey sandwiches come with lettuce, viagra info tomato and condiments separate. Viagra info I usually cover the table with a white towel and put the lunch together for the patient. Viagra info This gets me untold good-humored grief from those who see me do this. Viagra info Hey, viagra info the patients appreciate it; who wants to fumble with a bunch of packets when they’re sick? No one’s left me a tip, viagra info though.

Viagra info I believe this image of nurses as waitresses are actually the result of old advertisements and the fact that in the old days, viagra info the nurses actually put the patient trays together. Viagra info That was way before my time, viagra info but check out this Coke ad. Viagra info These types of ads probably had a lot to do with it.

Of course, viagra info sometimes it can feel like you are a waitress as patients request that you address various needs. Viagra info Every patient will ask for:

  • A warm blanket. Viagra info Even the ones in for ankle sprains. Viagra info ERs are cold! Give everyone a blanket, viagra info even the ones who aren’t cold. Viagra info They will be.
  • The bathroom. Viagra info Show the ambulatory ones where it is. Viagra info Give a urinal to the men. Viagra info Get a bedpan ready for the women – every woman will have to pee within 5 minutes of getting settled in the gurney.
  • Water. Viagra info If they can have it, viagra info give them a cup. Viagra info If they don’t want it, viagra info they will.
  • The call bell. Viagra info They won’t ask for it, viagra info but make sure they have it and tell them to use it if they need anything. Viagra info Just having it available tends to make them more secure and less “needy”. Viagra info They also won’t be wandering the halls looking for you.

Viagra info I make sure everyone is set up in the room at the time I room them. Viagra info It makes the patients more comfortable from the beginning and saves a lot of running around for me.

Viagra info Oh, viagra info and by the way I was a waitress at one time. Viagra info There are two traits waitressing and nursing have in common. Viagra info The ability to juggle many clients at once and the ability to prioritize. Viagra info It was a fun job. Viagra info But it just didn’t have that cap…….

Expect to be late
Because you will wait.

Lipitor 40mg pills $231.00 Instrumental Interlude

Lipitor 40mg pills $231.00 I like my books.
I like my friends.
I’d like to read on my lunch break.
If I could have one now and then….

Lipitor 40mg pills $231.00 But, lipitor 40mg pills $231.00 I love this ER.
It’s a happenin’ spot.
And the patients all come in, lipitor 40mg pills $231.00 at seven pm on the dot.
Give your co-pay
Before you stay.
Mmmm, lipitor 40mg pills $231.00 I love this ER.

Lipitor 40mg pills $231.00 Mmmm, lipitor 40mg pills $231.00 I love this old ER.

Doxycycline 100mg Pills $82.00

Zanaflex 4mg pills $109.00 How would I look in this uniform? Wonderful, zanaflex 4mg pills $109.00 if I was seven feet tall with the proportions of Barbie. Zanaflex 4mg pills $109.00 Bruck’s Nurses Outfitting Company also made the old nurses’ capes. Zanaflex 4mg pills $109.00 I checked to see if they were still in business but found nothing. Zanaflex 4mg pills $109.00 Check out the $5.95 price tag! LOL! What was the nursing salary back then? One hundred dollars a month? I wonder what the nurses of the 1940s would think if they could see us now in our SpongeBob Squarepants and Betty Boop scrubs. Zanaflex 4mg pills $109.00 Not that I wear those. Zanaflex 4mg pills $109.00 Okay, zanaflex 4mg pills $109.00 I do pull out my “SpongeBob ScaredyPants” scrub top for Halloween and my Peanuts Baseball print in the Spring. Zanaflex 4mg pills $109.00 I also have a Nurse Tweety Bird top with Tweety in a nurses’ cap. Zanaflex 4mg pills $109.00 I always thought Tweety was a guy!

Zanaflex 4mg pills $109.00 For those of you interested in changing your career or working in a new specialty, zanaflex 4mg pills $109.00 you can be an ER nurse, zanaflex 4mg pills $109.00 too! In this exciting specialty you can:

  • Have a verbally abusive 80-year-old flip you off behind your back as you gently guide his companion to a room. Zanaflex 4mg pills $109.00 You will know about it from the ten people at the nursing station who witnessed it. Zanaflex 4mg pills $109.00 You will have no clue what you did that prompted the gesture.
  • Confirm the physiological link between pulmonary edema and the need for a bowel movement. Zanaflex 4mg pills $109.00 Oxygen can’t wait. Zanaflex 4mg pills $109.00 Neither will stool. Zanaflex 4mg pills $109.00 You’ll learn to slap on the non-rebreather on the face and get ready to put the bedpan under the other end.
  • Get smacked on the arm by a confused 102-year-old who does not appreciate the necessity for a blood pressure. Zanaflex 4mg pills $109.00 Then again, zanaflex 4mg pills $109.00 that may be appropriate behavior for a 102- year-old who is spunky enough to protest a BP.
  • Play the “pain is what the patient says it is” game with repeat migraine patients as they lay totally relaxed, zanaflex 4mg pills $109.00 speech slurred after a trillion milligrams of Narcotic-of-Choice by IV, zanaflex 4mg pills $109.00 but their pain is still at a 9.9 out of 10 on a 0-10 scale. Zanaflex 4mg pills $109.00 They know they are playing the system and you know they are playing the system and they know-that-you-know and you know-that-they-know-you-know. Zanaflex 4mg pills $109.00
  • Interact with a man who will not acknowledge women. Zanaflex 4mg pills $109.00 He will not look at them and lord knows he will not talk to them. Zanaflex 4mg pills $109.00 You’ll wonder if it is a cultural issue, zanaflex 4mg pills $109.00 but then you will realize it is an obnoxiousness issue.
  • Watch as a parent sweeps their infant off the gurney to the other side of the room because there is NO WAY IN HELL that you are going to take a RECTAL TEMPERATURE on their child. Zanaflex 4mg pills $109.00 You pervert.
  • Deal with Dr. Zanaflex 4mg pills $109.00 Snailspace by realizing that the harder you push to mobilize patients the slower the doctor will move. Zanaflex 4mg pills $109.00 Deliberately. Zanaflex 4mg pills $109.00 Run interference with said patients as they express their frustrations at you, zanaflex 4mg pills $109.00 the nurse. Zanaflex 4mg pills $109.00 No one ever yells at “The Doctor”.
  • Answer phone calls from potential patients who want to know how busy your ER is at that moment. Zanaflex 4mg pills $109.00 Realize that anyone who can shop-by-phone for the ER with the shortest waiting time doesn’t really need to be in an ER at all.
  • Learn that when a particular surgeon writes for everything to be done “STAT” on his appendectomy patient has no intention on taking that patient to surgery until the next morning. Zanaflex 4mg pills $109.00 Learn this by letting the surgeon know the patient is “ready” after running for 90 minutes to get everything done “STAT” as ordered.
  • Realize that enemas are more of an emergency department function than you would have thought. Zanaflex 4mg pills $109.00 Learn to be assertive as you let your internet-surfing-laid-back colleague know that he is expected to do the next one.

Zanaflex 4mg pills $109.00 The stories you have just read are true. Zanaflex 4mg pills $109.00 Just about everything has been changed to protect the innocent. Zanaflex 4mg pills $109.00 But you get the picture.
