Canadian Viagra

Canadian viagra I am an addict.

Canadian viagra It is true.

Canadian viagra My drug has been available to the general public for five years now. Canadian viagra I discovered it a year ago.

Canadian viagra Most people can take it without becoming emotionally affected. Canadian viagra I, canadian viagra however, canadian viagra am drawn to it as a moth to a flame.

Canadian viagra I suffer emotional withdrawal symptoms when it is taken from me, canadian viagra as it invariably is.

Canadian viagra I swore I would not become involved again, canadian viagra but my family is co-dependent and encourage my participation. Canadian viagra I am often forced against my will to relapse.

Canadian viagra At work, canadian viagra I have to sneak into the back room to get my fix. Canadian viagra Some of my co-workers know. Canadian viagra Others have never discovered my secret.

Canadian viagra I’m so ashamed.

Canadian viagra It’s cruel. Canadian viagra It’s encouraging. Canadian viagra Sometimes, canadian viagra it puts people in the “dawg pound”.

Canadian viagra I am addicted…..to American Idol.

Canadian viagra Please help me.

Life used to be so simple in the ER.
If a patient needed to stay in the hospital, canadian viagra you obtained a room number from Admitting.
You then would take a final set of vital signs to verify that the patient was indeed stable for transport, canadian viagra bring your nursing notes up to date and double check the lab work to make sure that no one missed the potassium level of 9 or the hemoglobin of 1.
A call to the receiving nurse was then placed to give “report”, canadian viagra a verbal narrative of the history of the present illness and emergency department course, canadian viagra adding significant historical medical information as necessary: allergies, canadian viagra previous surgeries, canadian viagra etc.
After receiving a litany of 15 reasons why the receiving nurse can’t take the patient right then, canadian viagra a negotiation ensues. Canadian viagra A time for transport is agreed upon and the patient goes up with his chart.
Oh, canadian viagra how I long for the good old days.
Approximately one year ago, canadian viagra some agency (JACHO?) decides that things must change for the good of the patient! Here is what now must be done before the patient goes up:
  • Report must be faxed.
    • This entails writing the entire report. Canadian viagra So, canadian viagra everything that you have just spent hours writing on the nursing notes must be summarized and rewritten on the fax report form. Canadian viagra Even I, canadian viagra with my passion for charting, canadian viagra think this is asinine. Canadian viagra It is also mandatory.
    • It takes longer to fill out the fax report than it does to verbally report.
    • The only advantage is the nurse can’t give you 15 reasons for not taking the patient any longer.
      • In my facility, canadian viagra the policy is the patient comes up 30 minutes after the fax. Canadian viagra Oh, canadian viagra and we call to confirm that the fax is on the way. Canadian viagra In the beginning they mysteriously weren’t received.
        • Okay, canadian viagra in the interest of fairness, canadian viagra sometimes faxes are sent to the wrong floor or a bed number is changed after report has been faxed.
        • And the floor/unit nurses get a 30 minute “heads-up” after the fax and before the patient arrives so they can prioritize prior to getting the patient. Canadian viagra Which I know I would greatly appreciate if I worked up on the floors.
    • We tried faxing the nursing notes instead for a brief period, canadian viagra thinking that would cover all the bases, canadian viagra but how shall I put this, canadian viagra not all nurses are thorough “charters” and/or it was difficult to read through to get the pertinent information.
  • We need to practice “medication reconciliation”.
    • This means that, canadian viagra when a patient is going to be admitted, canadian viagra an exact list of what medications the patient is taking, canadian viagra including vitamins and herbal supplements must be listed, canadian viagra along with the dosage, canadian viagra frequency and the last time the patient took the medicine. Canadian viagra Allergies and adverse reactions are also noted for a second time (first on the nursing notes).
    • The goal is a noble one: to make sure the patient is discharged with the medications “matching” the ones they came in taking, canadian viagra with or without changes.
    • This is all done on a new form that acts as a physician’s order sheet for meds (ie they can check to order the drug as written or to not order it.
    • Guess who gets to get all this information ready for admission – yep, canadian viagra the ER nurse. Canadian viagra They say the family can fill out the form and sometimes the patients come in with beautiful computerized lists that bring tears of joy to my eyes. Canadian viagra But usually the family is anxious about doing that so it falls to the nurse to complete.
      • Oh, canadian viagra and by the way, canadian viagra those beautiful computerized lists? We can’t copy them. Canadian viagra They must be re-copied, canadian viagra by hand, canadian viagra on the form.
  • Signature recognition
    • On a separate form, canadian viagra in addition to signing your name twice on the nursing notes, canadian viagra you must print your name, canadian viagra sign your name, canadian viagra and designate your work station.
    • Apparently illegible handwriting is making signature reading a lost art.
    • To my blessed delight, canadian viagra my facility no longer requires this form. Canadian viagra But for many months this was also mandatory.

Canadian viagra So, canadian viagra in one year, canadian viagra three new pieces of paperwork were added to the already hectic activity that accompanies a patient admission. Canadian viagra Two of which require the nurse to sit, canadian viagra undisturbed, canadian viagra for a minimum of 20 minutes to complete in addition to all the regular paperwork. Canadian viagra We have no recourse but to do as we are told.

Canadian viagra I wish someone would tell these agencies off.

Canadian viagra Where is Simon Cowell when you need him?

Neurontin 300mg Pills $167.00

Tadacip 20mg pills $167.00 Okay. Tadacip 20mg pills $167.00 I thought by now I had seen it all, tadacip 20mg pills $167.00 but this…..this is really bad.

Tadacip 20mg pills $167.00 Be a nurse and make good money….why gosh it never occurred to me to be a nurse until I picked up these matches!

Tadacip 20mg pills $167.00 Granted, tadacip 20mg pills $167.00 this is for “practical nursing”, tadacip 20mg pills $167.00 as opposed to what? Impractical nursing? Maybe they mean LPN. Tadacip 20mg pills $167.00 It’s still insulting. Tadacip 20mg pills $167.00 And the nurse is wearing the coveted cap.

Tadacip 20mg pills $167.00 Learn from home in your spare time? What is this, tadacip 20mg pills $167.00 an old Sally Struthers TV commercial? Who are your clinical patients supposed to be? Family? Neighbors? Your animals? Where do you get your equipment? How do you know if you’re doing things right or not?

Tadacip 20mg pills $167.00 The course is endorsed by physicians. Tadacip 20mg pills $167.00 Well then, tadacip 20mg pills $167.00 it must be A-OK! Not! But I betcha they don’t hire the “graduates”.

Tadacip 20mg pills $167.00 But wait! High school is not required! Whew! I bet that was a load off some folk’s minds. Tadacip 20mg pills $167.00 ‘Specially since you can be anywhere from 18 to 60!

Tadacip 20mg pills $167.00 Send for the free booklet! No salesman will call! Nobody will oversee your education! What more could you want?

Tadacip 20mg pills $167.00 One minute you have nurses beseeching you to join their ranks for the good of the country and the next thing you know they’re soliciting from matchbooks.

Tadacip 20mg pills $167.00 I just hope they close their cover before striking……


I hate spleens. Tadacip 20mg pills $167.00 I really do. Tadacip 20mg pills $167.00 I mean, tadacip 20mg pills $167.00 I’m glad I still have mine, tadacip 20mg pills $167.00 and I fully intend to keep it. Tadacip 20mg pills $167.00 But spleens aren’t very forgiving and sometimes they are downright sneaky.

Tadacip 20mg pills $167.00 Young girl, tadacip 20mg pills $167.00 early teens, tadacip 20mg pills $167.00 unrestrained front seat passenger of a car driven approximately 25 mph head first into a wall. Tadacip 20mg pills $167.00 Old car, tadacip 20mg pills $167.00 long ago, tadacip 20mg pills $167.00 no airbags to deploy.

Tadacip 20mg pills $167.00 Patient is ambulatory on scene without c/o neck, tadacip 20mg pills $167.00 back or head pain. Tadacip 20mg pills $167.00 Slight pain to lower left ribs but nothing more. Tadacip 20mg pills $167.00 Mother arrives on scene and signs patient out AMA, tadacip 20mg pills $167.00 stating she will transport patient to the ER. Tadacip 20mg pills $167.00 And she does.

Tadacip 20mg pills $167.00 My ER. Tadacip 20mg pills $167.00 My non-trauma center ER. Tadacip 20mg pills $167.00 As triage nurse for the day, tadacip 20mg pills $167.00 I began taking the history. Tadacip 20mg pills $167.00 Slight pain on palpation when left lower ribs are softly touched. Tadacip 20mg pills $167.00 Pain increasing slightly with inspiration. Tadacip 20mg pills $167.00 Lungs clear. Tadacip 20mg pills $167.00 Denies SOB. Tadacip 20mg pills $167.00 I’m thinking pulmonary contusion, tadacip 20mg pills $167.00 maybe rib fracture. Tadacip 20mg pills $167.00 The mechanism of injury was not great, tadacip 20mg pills $167.00 but the patient was walking and looking good on scene and when he got to the triage station. Tadacip 20mg pills $167.00 Then, tadacip 20mg pills $167.00 suddenly the patient begins to look rather, tadacip 20mg pills $167.00 uh, tadacip 20mg pills $167.00 sick. Tadacip 20mg pills $167.00 Icky. Tadacip 20mg pills $167.00 Pale. Tadacip 20mg pills $167.00 Nauseated. Tadacip 20mg pills $167.00 Shocky. Tadacip 20mg pills $167.00 Bad.

Tadacip 20mg pills $167.00 This is not good.

Tadacip 20mg pills $167.00 Mom gets sent out to registration and patient comes with me, tadacip 20mg pills $167.00 in a wheelchair for obvious reasons but now she can’t stand up straight anyway. Tadacip 20mg pills $167.00 I grab the ER doc on the way in. Tadacip 20mg pills $167.00 He examines the patient only to discover within about one-half second that it is not the ribs, tadacip 20mg pills $167.00 it’s left upper abdominal pain and we are goin’ to the OR. Tadacip 20mg pills $167.00 Mom returns within minutes and gets the scoop. Tadacip 20mg pills $167.00 Two large bore IVs with a bolus (BP falling)while the OR gets ready and off we go.

Tadacip 20mg pills $167.00 Ruptured spleen.

Tadacip 20mg pills $167.00 I hate it when they do that.


It had been a helacious shift.

Tadacip 20mg pills $167.00 Everyone was very sick in some fashion or another, tadacip 20mg pills $167.00 almost all requiring IVs and medications for pain or nausea (or both). Tadacip 20mg pills $167.00 Lots of respiratory distress and a couple of in-house codes to top it all off. Tadacip 20mg pills $167.00 (We lose the ER doc and an ER nurse for what is hopefully a short period of time when someone in the hospital has a cardiac arrest).

Tadacip 20mg pills $167.00 We had people sitting in the waiting room that I desperately wanted in rooms; they were miserable.

Tadacip 20mg pills $167.00 Finally we get one bed open. Tadacip 20mg pills $167.00 I’m about to call in the next patient. Tadacip 20mg pills $167.00 This guy walks up being supported by friends. Tadacip 20mg pills $167.00 “Hey, tadacip 20mg pills $167.00 like, tadacip 20mg pills $167.00 he has the flu, tadacip 20mg pills $167.00 man. Tadacip 20mg pills $167.00 Been vomiting all night. Tadacip 20mg pills $167.00 He even passed out twice at home!” Sounds like he’s dehydrated from gastroenteritis just like the rest of the county. Tadacip 20mg pills $167.00 But passing out twice kind of gives you priority for a bed. Tadacip 20mg pills $167.00 We don’t take kindly to syncope (fainting).

Tadacip 20mg pills $167.00 I asked the patient to gown and lay down on the bed. Tadacip 20mg pills $167.00 He said it hurt to lay down. Tadacip 20mg pills $167.00 Well geeze, tadacip 20mg pills $167.00 dude, tadacip 20mg pills $167.00 if you don’t lay down and you’re dehydrated you’re gonna pass out again! I said it a wee bit more professionally than that. Tadacip 20mg pills $167.00 Nope, tadacip 20mg pills $167.00 he wasn’t gonna lay down. Tadacip 20mg pills $167.00 Okay.

Tadacip 20mg pills $167.00 “Look, tadacip 20mg pills $167.00” I told the friends. Tadacip 20mg pills $167.00 “Sit next to him on the side of the bed. Tadacip 20mg pills $167.00 If he feels dizzy lay him down.”

Tadacip 20mg pills $167.00 He needed an IV, tadacip 20mg pills $167.00 like yesterday. Tadacip 20mg pills $167.00 But….. Tadacip 20mg pills $167.00 three more patients walked in and I ran out to have them sign in for triage and make sure none of them was having a heart attack, tadacip 20mg pills $167.00 stroke, tadacip 20mg pills $167.00 etc. Tadacip 20mg pills $167.00 And someone had to take report from the medics who had brought in a possible stroke victim.

Tadacip 20mg pills $167.00 Did I mention that at this particular facility there were only 2 nurses after 2300? It was after 2300.

Tadacip 20mg pills $167.00 I heard loud cries for help from the friends of our vomiting, tadacip 20mg pills $167.00 fainting guy. Tadacip 20mg pills $167.00 I rush in to find him, tadacip 20mg pills $167.00 essentially unconscious, tadacip 20mg pills $167.00 sitting between them. Tadacip 20mg pills $167.00 They hadn’t laid him down. Tadacip 20mg pills $167.00 So I did. Tadacip 20mg pills $167.00 He woke up.

Tadacip 20mg pills $167.00 Blood pressure of 70 systolic when flat. Tadacip 20mg pills $167.00 And in pain.

Tadacip 20mg pills $167.00 I still thought he was a severe case of dehydration but a little voice inside my head made me act like a trauma nurse and put in two large bore IVs. Tadacip 20mg pills $167.00 One of them was a 14 Gauge. Tadacip 20mg pills $167.00 A freakin’ hose. Tadacip 20mg pills $167.00 Had the ER doc at the bedside by that time and he did his exam. Tadacip 20mg pills $167.00 The patient’s abdomen was rock-hard. Tadacip 20mg pills $167.00 It was so tender that even touching the hairs on his upper abdomen was excruciating.

Tadacip 20mg pills $167.00 No fever. Tadacip 20mg pills $167.00 Sudden onset. Tadacip 20mg pills $167.00 Denied trauma. Tadacip 20mg pills $167.00 Normal BMs. Tadacip 20mg pills $167.00 Weird.

Tadacip 20mg pills $167.00 The IVs kept flowing so that I could get his blood pressure up and try to address the pain issue. Tadacip 20mg pills $167.00 And the pain kept getting worse and the blood pressure would not respond. Tadacip 20mg pills $167.00 It seemed like it took forever to get my patient to the CT.

Tadacip 20mg pills $167.00 Ruptured spleen.

Tadacip 20mg pills $167.00 Massive hemoperitoneum.

Tadacip 20mg pills $167.00 Say what?

Tadacip 20mg pills $167.00 We didn’t believe it. Tadacip 20mg pills $167.00 We had one “ruptured spleen” in surgery already. Tadacip 20mg pills $167.00 We thought they had faxed us the earlier report.

Tadacip 20mg pills $167.00 Then the truth came out. Tadacip 20mg pills $167.00 Three weeks earlier, tadacip 20mg pills $167.00 a large tool had fallen onto the patients left side. Tadacip 20mg pills $167.00 It was sore, tadacip 20mg pills $167.00 nothing major. Tadacip 20mg pills $167.00 He did notice he could no longer jog without pain, tadacip 20mg pills $167.00 which he thought was weird, tadacip 20mg pills $167.00 but nothing to see a doctor about. Tadacip 20mg pills $167.00 He had a hematoma on his spleen. Tadacip 20mg pills $167.00 It started bleeding that night, tadacip 20mg pills $167.00 giving him the “flu” symptoms he presented with.

Tadacip 20mg pills $167.00 He made it. Tadacip 20mg pills $167.00 So did the first patient. Tadacip 20mg pills $167.00 I, tadacip 20mg pills $167.00 however needed a weeks worth of Ativan after that shift.

Tadacip 20mg pills $167.00 So don’t be surprised if you are ever in an ER for a sprained ankle and the nurse asks how your spleen is feeling.

Tadacip 20mg pills $167.00 It will be me.

Tadacip 20mg pills $167.00 I hate spleens.
