Imdur 20mg Pills $132.00

Imdur 20mg pills $132.00 What is wrong with Nurse Bradley in this old Wyeth ad? Well…

Imdur 20mg pills $132.00 Her uniform is wrinkled, imdur 20mg pills $132.00 her hat is not starched and for some reason they won’t let her in to the OR. Imdur 20mg pills $132.00 Dr. Imdur 20mg pills $132.00 Studley Intern stood her up last Friday, imdur 20mg pills $132.00 she can’t get Thursday off to attend the hemoptysis symposium and she’s had 40 patients on the ward instead of the normal 38 three days running. Imdur 20mg pills $132.00 Dr. Imdur 20mg pills $132.00 Ogre yelled at her for existing and her head nurse makes the Drill Instructor in “Full Metal Jacket” look like Mr. Imdur 20mg pills $132.00 Rogers. Imdur 20mg pills $132.00 She’s a good nurse but deep in her heart she knows she can be the next American Idol.

Imdur 20mg pills $132.00 Maybe she’s tired of being thought of as a consumer product.

Imdur 20mg pills $132.00 Think about it.

Imdur 20mg pills $132.00 People are “health care consumers” who get their care from “health care providers”. Imdur 20mg pills $132.00 Hospitals give their staff instruction in “customer service”. Imdur 20mg pills $132.00 Those who are sick are “clients”, imdur 20mg pills $132.00 not patients. Imdur 20mg pills $132.00 Hospitals are vying for business, imdur 20mg pills $132.00 trying to get the highest scores in “Patient Satisfaction” so some give meal service like a restaurant – on demand, imdur 20mg pills $132.00 like room service. Imdur 20mg pills $132.00 Some advertise that it will take you longer to sneeze than to be seen in their ER.

Imdur 20mg pills $132.00 Something is wrong.

Imdur 20mg pills $132.00 I’ve taken care of patients ranging from the homeless to those who live in the most opulent areas you can imagine. Imdur 20mg pills $132.00 I’ve been treated like a domestic servant by people with their nose so high in the air they hit it on the door on their way into the department and I smile and tolerate it in the name of “patient satisfaction”. Imdur 20mg pills $132.00 I’ve been bossed around by folks at the other end of the spectrum whose sole purpose for coming to the ER was to get fed – and I’m the waitress – and I deal with it in the name of “patient satisfaction”.

Imdur 20mg pills $132.00 It’s no better for the doctors. Imdur 20mg pills $132.00 I’ve seen doctors order tests because the patients insist, imdur 20mg pills $132.00 not because it is necessary. Imdur 20mg pills $132.00 Because their co-worker’s sister’s mother-in-law read in Reader’s Digest that someone in Macon, imdur 20mg pills $132.00 Georgia didn’t get this test back in 2003 and they died! Because the patient will perceive her care as “unsatisfactory” if she doesn’t get the test. Imdur 20mg pills $132.00 Because they don’t want to get sued. Imdur 20mg pills $132.00 A minimum of twelve years of hard work, imdur 20mg pills $132.00 study and sacrifice to become a physician and all it boils down to is being a conduit for getting tests ordered so the patient will perceive their care as “satisfactory”.

Imdur 20mg pills $132.00 Enough!

Imdur 20mg pills $132.00 I’m tired of this. Imdur 20mg pills $132.00 First of all, imdur 20mg pills $132.00 I am not a consumer product. Imdur 20mg pills $132.00 I don’t provide “customer service”. Imdur 20mg pills $132.00 I provide nursing care. Imdur 20mg pills $132.00 My care is given because I am a Nurse and it is received by a Patient, imdur 20mg pills $132.00 not a “customer” or “client”. Imdur 20mg pills $132.00 It is not consumed. Imdur 20mg pills $132.00 My patients will perceive their care as “satisfactory” because it will be safe and their needs, imdur 20mg pills $132.00 both physical and spiritual will be met and their concerns will be addressed, imdur 20mg pills $132.00 and not because the hospital hires Emeril Lagasse to man the tray line or offers digital cable. Imdur 20mg pills $132.00 My hospital, imdur 20mg pills $132.00 as wonderful as it is, imdur 20mg pills $132.00 is not Nordstrom’s. Imdur 20mg pills $132.00 Health care is not the equivalent of choosing a pair of shoes. Imdur 20mg pills $132.00 I’m in the best ER I’ve ever known, imdur 20mg pills $132.00 but sorry folks, imdur 20mg pills $132.00 sneeze into your hankerchief if you have to, imdur 20mg pills $132.00 but you WILL wait like everyone else unless you are having a true emergency, imdur 20mg pills $132.00 no matter what some PR firm decides to print.

Imdur 20mg pills $132.00 Patients will be satisfied with their care because they are cared for by competent physicians and nurses who are educated to provide health care in partnership with the patient, imdur 20mg pills $132.00 understanding that the more information and patient education available, imdur 20mg pills $132.00 the better the patient is enabled to make their health care decisions.

Imdur 20mg pills $132.00 And that results in “Patient Satisfaction”.

Lipitor 10mg Pills $54.00

Fosamax 5mg pills $143.00 As you travel among the galaxies, fosamax 5mg pills $143.00 it is possible that you will require some form of health care attention.

Fosamax 5mg pills $143.00 On Earth, fosamax 5mg pills $143.00 the primary means of obtaining such care is through what Earth inhabitants refer to as an “Emergency Department”.

Fosamax 5mg pills $143.00 It is well for you to remember the Hitchhiker’s motto:

Fosamax 5mg pills $143.00


Fosamax 5mg pills $143.00 It is in the Emergency Departments of Earth that you will learn first-hand the concepts of “sitting” and “waiting”.

Fosamax 5mg pills $143.00 You will first be directed to an area where you will “sit” and “wait” for a process called “Triage”, fosamax 5mg pills $143.00 where you will be instructed to “sit” and give the Nurse your entire health history, fosamax 5mg pills $143.00 unless of course the ED, fosamax 5mg pills $143.00 as it is called, fosamax 5mg pills $143.00 is horrendously busy at which point nobody cares about the nose bleed you had on Alpha Centauri last millennium.

Fosamax 5mg pills $143.00 You will then be instructed to a room where you will “sit” and “wait” to be assigned a planetary medical source number, fosamax 5mg pills $143.00 or in Earth parlance, fosamax 5mg pills $143.00 be “registered”.

Fosamax 5mg pills $143.00 Once you are called to “Registration”, fosamax 5mg pills $143.00 you will “sit” and give the data collector your planetary information. Fosamax 5mg pills $143.00 As in Triage, fosamax 5mg pills $143.00 this will have to be done verbally, fosamax 5mg pills $143.00 as earthlings are not equipped with telepathic sensors.

Fosamax 5mg pills $143.00 (This does not, fosamax 5mg pills $143.00 however keep some earthlings from assuming that nurses and doctors already know everything about them because it is “in the chart”.)

Fosamax 5mg pills $143.00 Do speak in English as Babelfish are not indigenous to the planet. Fosamax 5mg pills $143.00 However, fosamax 5mg pills $143.00 if you land anywhere in the region known as California, fosamax 5mg pills $143.00 Spanish is the main language of approximately 51.8% of the population.

Fosamax 5mg pills $143.00 You will resume “sitting” and “waiting”.

Fosamax 5mg pills $143.00 You will then be escorted to a cubicle where you will be instructed to replace your clothing with a garment of dubious construction.

Fosamax 5mg pills $143.00 The doctor will then arrive and, fosamax 5mg pills $143.00 while you “sit”, fosamax 5mg pills $143.00 proceed to ask you the same questions presented to you in Triage. Fosamax 5mg pills $143.00 It is important that you vary your story slightly in key areas, fosamax 5mg pills $143.00 in keeping with the Earth tradition of never telling the same story to both doctor and nurse.

Fosamax 5mg pills $143.00 Should you need to see a specialist, fosamax 5mg pills $143.00 who will ask you the exact same questions you have answered twice before, fosamax 5mg pills $143.00 vary the story a second time, fosamax 5mg pills $143.00 thereby insuring that the ER doctor and nurse look like, fosamax 5mg pills $143.00 as they say on Earth, fosamax 5mg pills $143.00 idiots.

Fosamax 5mg pills $143.00 Once the physical examination is complete, fosamax 5mg pills $143.00 you will “sit” and “wait” for serum to be taken from your portals.

Fosamax 5mg pills $143.00 You will “sit” and “wait” for radiographic images and something known as Computerized Axial Tomography of your cranium. Fosamax 5mg pills $143.00 Having completed that, fosamax 5mg pills $143.00 you “sit” and “wait” for the results.

Fosamax 5mg pills $143.00 It is possible that while “sitting” and “waiting”, fosamax 5mg pills $143.00 you received a consciousness-altering plant derivative highly sought after by earthlings with cranial discomfort.

Fosamax 5mg pills $143.00 The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, fosamax 5mg pills $143.00 Medical Edition suggests that you do not travel through hyperspace for 24 hours after reception of such derivatives and that you refrain from consuming Pan Galactic Gargle-Blasters for 48 hours.

Fosamax 5mg pills $143.00 Virgin Pan Galactic Gargle Blasters, fosamax 5mg pills $143.00 are, fosamax 5mg pills $143.00 however, fosamax 5mg pills $143.00 permitted.

Fosamax 5mg pills $143.00 Ignoring these recommendations could result in quite forceful regurgitation of gastric contents. Fosamax 5mg pills $143.00 While this is considered a polite compliment on Seti Alpha 5, fosamax 5mg pills $143.00 it is quite repugnant to earthlings.

Fosamax 5mg pills $143.00 Once the doctor releases you from the health care area, fosamax 5mg pills $143.00 you will “sit” and “wait” for discharge instructions. Fosamax 5mg pills $143.00 They are rarely read or followed by the average earthling. Fosamax 5mg pills $143.00 You may find them of interest as a cultural artifact.

Fosamax 5mg pills $143.00 They are given on the theory of “covering one’s derriere”, fosamax 5mg pills $143.00 although earthlings do not attach them to that area.

Fosamax 5mg pills $143.00 The precise origin of this theory is rumored to be related to an Earth game called “suing” where great sums of currency are given after a large competition to see who has the better attorney, fosamax 5mg pills $143.00 the patient or the hospital.

Fosamax 5mg pills $143.00 The End

Fosamax 5mg pills $143.00 (My apologies to the late Douglas Adams. Fosamax 5mg pills $143.00 I was watching “Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy” on DVD last night and couldn’t resist a parody.)
