Tadalafil 20mg Pills 270 $397.00

Tadalafil 20mg pills 270 $397.00 There is a person in this photograph who suffers from a rare, tadalafil 20mg pills 270 $397.00 dare I say extinct affliction.

Tadalafil 20mg pills 270 $397.00 Yes.

Tadalafil 20mg pills 270 $397.00 It’s an actual photo of “Flat Cap Syndrome”.

Tadalafil 20mg pills 270 $397.00 Flat Cap Syndrome developed when the brim of one’s nursing cap was larger than the fold behind it.

Tadalafil 20mg pills 270 $397.00 Some say that the victims were responsible for choosing to go to a School of Nursing identified by those caps.

Tadalafil 20mg pills 270 $397.00 Don’t blame the victim.

Tadalafil 20mg pills 270 $397.00 Maybe it was the only School that she was accepted to.

Tadalafil 20mg pills 270 $397.00 Maybe…..maybe she didn’t know….

Tadalafil 20mg pills 270 $397.00 By the time I graduated, tadalafil 20mg pills 270 $397.00 designs in nursing caps had pretty much made Flat Cap Syndrome a thing of the past.

Tadalafil 20mg pills 270 $397.00 My cap was never flat, tadalafil 20mg pills 270 $397.00 and to this day it stands proudly in its case in the den closet in pristine condition.

Tadalafil 20mg pills 270 $397.00 (Disclosure: it’s in pristine condition because I just bought it off of eBay.

Tadalafil 20mg pills 270 $397.00 I have to get the green and gold ribbons on it and then I have to get the courage to wear it to work because my co-workers will have a field day with me.

Tadalafil 20mg pills 270 $397.00 If all of a sudden there is no more Emergiblog, tadalafil 20mg pills 270 $397.00 it’s because they killed me with ridicule.

Tadalafil 20mg pills 270 $397.00 Call the authorities.)

hhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

Some of the advantages of working in different facilities are the exposure to different styles of nursing, tadalafil 20mg pills 270 $397.00 different opportunities, tadalafil 20mg pills 270 $397.00 different patient populations and differing protocols regarding what nurses are able to do on their own.

Tadalafil 20mg pills 270 $397.00 I’m not talking about using nurses instead of doctors, tadalafil 20mg pills 270 $397.00 a la the problems that Dr. Tadalafil 20mg pills 270 $397.00 Crippen at NHS Blog Doctor describes, tadalafil 20mg pills 270 $397.00 I’m talking about protocols that allow nurses, tadalafil 20mg pills 270 $397.00 using certain criteria established by the ER physicians, tadalafil 20mg pills 270 $397.00 to initiate care prior to the doctor seeing the patient.

Sounds like a great way to facilitate patient flow and satisfaction, tadalafil 20mg pills 270 $397.00 right?

Tadalafil 20mg pills 270 $397.00 It is!

Tadalafil 20mg pills 270 $397.00 The best ERs that I have worked in are the ones that, tadalafil 20mg pills 270 $397.00 per protocol, tadalafil 20mg pills 270 $397.00 allow the RNs to do what they do best.

Tadalafil 20mg pills 270 $397.00 Conversely, tadalafil 20mg pills 270 $397.00 the worst ERs I’ve worked in allowed the nurses to do nothing without an order.

  • When I worked at “World Renown Medical Center With Hard To Get Into Medical School”, tadalafil 20mg pills 270 $397.00 this was the case. Tadalafil 20mg pills 270 $397.00 The nurses could not make a move without an order.
    • Why?
    • It was a teaching facility. Tadalafil 20mg pills 270 $397.00 How could the interns/residents learn to order appropriately if the nurse did it first? And forget verbal orders, tadalafil 20mg pills 270 $397.00 if some resident gave an order you grabbed the nearest order sheet and made them write it. Tadalafil 20mg pills 270 $397.00 So often you’d have five or six different order sheets going.
    • Why?
    • Because if there was a descrepancy between what was said and what was done, tadalafil 20mg pills 270 $397.00 guess whose derriere would be on the line? Right, tadalafil 20mg pills 270 $397.00 the nurse’s. Tadalafil 20mg pills 270 $397.00 Remember the old saying about how excrement flows downhill? It’s true.
    • And the wait to get into a room? Hours. Tadalafil 20mg pills 270 $397.00 We’re talking 5-7 hours at times. Tadalafil 20mg pills 270 $397.00 You could be vomiting, tadalafil 20mg pills 270 $397.00 have a 5-day migraine with photophobia, tadalafil 20mg pills 270 $397.00 writhing on the floor with right flank pain secondary to a kidney stone and you would STILL be sitting in the ER with all the feverish, tadalafil 20mg pills 270 $397.00 coughing bronchitis patients. Tadalafil 20mg pills 270 $397.00 And don’t think asthma would get you a front row seat, tadalafil 20mg pills 270 $397.00 either. Tadalafil 20mg pills 270 $397.00 If your O2 sat was normal, tadalafil 20mg pills 270 $397.00 have a seat like everyone else.
    • Why?
    • Because the beds never turned over. Tadalafil 20mg pills 270 $397.00 Because one nurse would be responsible for six monitored patients plus the psych isolation room across the hall. Tadalafil 20mg pills 270 $397.00 Because….
    • … first the “Pulmonary Team” had to see the patient, tadalafil 20mg pills 270 $397.00 then they would decide this was a cardiac problem and you’d wait a few hours for the “Cardiac Team” who would discover that the patient wasn’t on that service after all and a different “Team” would come in an hour later, tadalafil 20mg pills 270 $397.00 only to discover that said patient couldn’t be admitted there anyway, tadalafil 20mg pills 270 $397.00 but then the patient would vomit blood which meant that they were too sick to transfer and you had to wait for the “GI Team” to come down and finally admit the patient.
    • Not to mention every single pediatric patient in the clinic area getting conscious sedation for their boo-boos.

Tadalafil 20mg pills 270 $397.00 Get the picture?

Tadalafil 20mg pills 270 $397.00 Then we have example number two.

  • Small community hospital, tadalafil 20mg pills 270 $397.00 one that I will call “Mini County Hospital”. Tadalafil 20mg pills 270 $397.00 Sat right in the middle of a very ethnically diverse, tadalafil 20mg pills 270 $397.00 lower-income area of a suburb that could be called the Meth Capital of the SF Bay Area. Tadalafil 20mg pills 270 $397.00 Many patients. Tadalafil 20mg pills 270 $397.00 Many clinical, tadalafil 20mg pills 270 $397.00 non-emergent patients. Tadalafil 20mg pills 270 $397.00 Some very emergent patients.
    • The nurses were not allowed to do anything. Tadalafil 20mg pills 270 $397.00 Nada. Tadalafil 20mg pills 270 $397.00 Kaput.
    • Why?
    • Because the department had a wide mix of nursing experience, tadalafil 20mg pills 270 $397.00 from new grads to newly designated dinosaurs like me, tadalafil 20mg pills 270 $397.00 and there were no protocols because they could not depend on all the nurses to have the same level of competency.
    • So one day, tadalafil 20mg pills 270 $397.00 Nurse Experience (me), tadalafil 20mg pills 270 $397.00 brings in a patient with chest pain, tadalafil 20mg pills 270 $397.00 starts a line while the tech does the EKG and within five minutes hands the doctor the EKG and the orders for CBC, tadalafil 20mg pills 270 $397.00 Chemistry Panel, tadalafil 20mg pills 270 $397.00 Cardiac Enzymes and portable chest to the unit clerk. Tadalafil 20mg pills 270 $397.00 No problem, tadalafil 20mg pills 270 $397.00 right? Wrong.
      • I was curtly asked, tadalafil 20mg pills 270 $397.00 “Who the hell told you to order those labs?”.
      • I looked at Dr. Tadalafil 20mg pills 270 $397.00 Who Was In Training Pants When I Graduated From Nursing School and said that they were the standard labs ordered for a chest pain patient suspected of having a cardiac problem.
      • “You are not covered to order these labs!
      • I said , tadalafil 20mg pills 270 $397.00 “Are you telling me that after (then) 24 years experience in nursing, tadalafil 20mg pills 270 $397.00 that I cannot at least get a cardiac workup started?
      • That was exactly what he was telling me. Tadalafil 20mg pills 270 $397.00 I had three times the experience and was old enough to be his…..older sister, tadalafil 20mg pills 270 $397.00 but it didn’t matter. Tadalafil 20mg pills 270 $397.00 The nursing expectations went to the lowest common denominator, tadalafil 20mg pills 270 $397.00 that of a new grad.
    • Which meant the patients in the waiting room waited, tadalafil 20mg pills 270 $397.00 sometimes 8 hours for the same reasons stated above. Tadalafil 20mg pills 270 $397.00 The nurses could not facilitate patient movement. Tadalafil 20mg pills 270 $397.00 Because we worked with relatively new doctors, tadalafil 20mg pills 270 $397.00 every child who vomited even once got an IV and a bolus. Tadalafil 20mg pills 270 $397.00 Most got septic workups.

Tadalafil 20mg pills 270 $397.00 Now let’s contrast this with an ER that runs quite smoothly, tadalafil 20mg pills 270 $397.00 which happens to be where I am now and plan to retire from when I’m so old I can’t stand up straight.

  • This ER has nursing protocols. Tadalafil 20mg pills 270 $397.00 Detailed, tadalafil 20mg pills 270 $397.00 well written protocols. Tadalafil 20mg pills 270 $397.00 Here’s what happens when you come into this ER:
    • For example, tadalafil 20mg pills 270 $397.00 you come in and your chief complaint is nausea, tadalafil 20mg pills 270 $397.00 vomiting, tadalafil 20mg pills 270 $397.00 diarrhea for three days with fever and you are extremely dizzy when upright. Tadalafil 20mg pills 270 $397.00 I’m your nurse.
      • Before the doc shows up I will have orthostatic vital signs, tadalafil 20mg pills 270 $397.00 an IV in, tadalafil 20mg pills 270 $397.00 bloods drawn, tadalafil 20mg pills 270 $397.00 a bolus of Normal Saline initiated (unless you are elderly or have heart trouble) , tadalafil 20mg pills 270 $397.00at least a CBC and Chem 14 ordered (with additional blood in case more tests are added) and you can expect me to ask for and collect a UA and an stool specimen, tadalafil 20mg pills 270 $397.00 which may or may not be needed, tadalafil 20mg pills 270 $397.00 but they will be collected just in case.
    • Or you are an elderly male who looks 8 months pregnant and hasn’t urinated for 2 days except for a little bit here and there. Tadalafil 20mg pills 270 $397.00 You can barely walk, tadalafil 20mg pills 270 $397.00 you are in so much pain. Tadalafil 20mg pills 270 $397.00 If I’m your nurse you will have a catheter in before you can say “ouch”, tadalafil 20mg pills 270 $397.00 assuming your prostate co-operates.
    • Your wait on a bad day in our waiting room may be three hours max.
    • Why?

Tadalafil 20mg pills 270 $397.00 Because the Registered Nurses in my department are covered by extensive ER protocols and we work with doctors who respect our judgement and know we would not order outside of our protocols.

Tadalafil 20mg pills 270 $397.00 My attitude is that by the time that doctor walks in to see the patient, tadalafil 20mg pills 270 $397.00 everything he/she needs has been at least considered. Tadalafil 20mg pills 270 $397.00 I am able to do much more than described above, tadalafil 20mg pills 270 $397.00 but it often isn’t necessary because the doctors see the patients so quickly, tadalafil 20mg pills 270 $397.00 they are usually right behind me.

Tadalafil 20mg pills 270 $397.00 (Yeah, tadalafil 20mg pills 270 $397.00 I have a great job, tadalafil 20mg pills 270 $397.00 which I appreciate all the more because I’ve had some bad ones.)

Tadalafil 20mg pills 270 $397.00 So the Emergency Departments that give nurses the most autonomy via protocols wind up being the ones that really need it the least. Tadalafil 20mg pills 270 $397.00 And they wind up being the ones with the highest patient satisfaction ratings.

Tadalafil 20mg pills 270 $397.00 A little ironic…

Tadalafil 20mg pills 270 $397.00 Doncha think?

ddd

Tadalafil 20mg pills 270 $397.00 Addendum: Dr. Tadalafil 20mg pills 270 $397.00 Who Was In Training Pants When I Graduated From Nursing School turned out to be one of the neatest persons I have ever met and he is a fantastic doctor. Tadalafil 20mg pills 270 $397.00 He was the one I missed most acutely when I left for my current job. Tadalafil 20mg pills 270 $397.00 Go figure.

Adhd strattera 10mg pills $84.00 I have been “tagged”.

Adhd strattera 10mg pills $84.00 Normally I do not participate in “tagging” because this is a professional blog where only professional matters are discussed. Adhd strattera 10mg pills $84.00 It is not about me.

Adhd strattera 10mg pills $84.00 Like hell!

Adhd strattera 10mg pills $84.00 It’s TOTALLY about me!

Adhd strattera 10mg pills $84.00 Me.

  • 4 Jobs I Have Had In My Life:
    • Registered Nurse
    • Nurse’s Aide
    • Telephone Sales for Montgomery Wards, adhd strattera 10mg pills $84.00 in their Appliance Extended Warranty Department. Adhd strattera 10mg pills $84.00 Freakin’ hell on earth.
    • Waitress at Bumbleberry’s Restaurant (now defunct – similar to Marie Calendar’s); spent all my tips on albums
  • 4 Movies I Could Watch Over and Over:
    • A.I. Adhd strattera 10mg pills $84.00 (Artificial Intelligence) – hands down, adhd strattera 10mg pills $84.00 the best freakin’ movie ever made. Adhd strattera 10mg pills $84.00 So creepy, adhd strattera 10mg pills $84.00 so sad, adhd strattera 10mg pills $84.00 so totally futuristically cool! Such a beautiful mix of Speilberg AND Stanley Kubrick in one, adhd strattera 10mg pills $84.00 beautiful homage to the eternal story of Pinochio and the moral question of our responsibility to artificially created intelligent beings. Adhd strattera 10mg pills $84.00 I own it, adhd strattera 10mg pills $84.00 I watch it regularly. Adhd strattera 10mg pills $84.00 You HAD to see this on the big screen. Adhd strattera 10mg pills $84.00 I saw it four times in the theater. Adhd strattera 10mg pills $84.00 I was the only person bawling into my tissue! If you do watch it now, adhd strattera 10mg pills $84.00 make sure it is on a large screen TV, adhd strattera 10mg pills $84.00 preferably with all the lights out and when it is raining! DAMN good movie!
    • I, adhd strattera 10mg pills $84.00 Robot – Will Smith in the shower, adhd strattera 10mg pills $84.00 OK? I’m just sayin’. Adhd strattera 10mg pills $84.00 A great rendering of Isaac Asimov’s classic novel – his whole robot series is mesmerizing. Adhd strattera 10mg pills $84.00 SO sci-fi! When I came home (saw it twice in the theater), adhd strattera 10mg pills $84.00 I looked into what it would cost to rent one of those robots that Mazda makes (“Asimo”)…..it was something like $300, adhd strattera 10mg pills $84.00000 per day. Adhd strattera 10mg pills $84.00 Guess I’ll have to get me a robot vacuum instead…..
    • Hitchhiker’s Guide To The Galaxy – Martin Freeman as a yarn man vomiting up yarn in a bin. Adhd strattera 10mg pills $84.00 I’m just sayin’! Actually, adhd strattera 10mg pills $84.00 I was also partial to Zaphod Beeblebrox. Adhd strattera 10mg pills $84.00 Hilarious movie if you are hip to British humor and if you are just hip in general. Adhd strattera 10mg pills $84.00 I saw it late on opening night (three times total) and there were only six of us in the theater and we were ALL hip to the Douglas Adams vibe. Adhd strattera 10mg pills $84.00 I laughed so hard I cried. Adhd strattera 10mg pills $84.00 Who you calling a nerd?
    • Sgt. Adhd strattera 10mg pills $84.00 Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band – Barry Gibb in Technicolor, adhd strattera 10mg pills $84.00 OK? I’m just sayin’! I saw this four times in the theater in one day! Of course, adhd strattera 10mg pills $84.00 this was prior to my becoming an RN and having responsibilities. Adhd strattera 10mg pills $84.00 I saw it alone, adhd strattera 10mg pills $84.00 then took my little sister, adhd strattera 10mg pills $84.00 then took my friend and then took my fiance! And he married me anyway! I love the Bee Gees and they do fantastic versions of the Beatles’ hits. Adhd strattera 10mg pills $84.00 Of course Peter Frampton looks like a powder puff but I saw him in concert a couple of years ago and he looks mighty fine with no hair!
  • 4 Websites I Visit Regularly:
    • James Lileks – at lileks.com , adhd strattera 10mg pills $84.00 writer extrodinaire, adhd strattera 10mg pills $84.00 hilarious blog called “The Bleat” – trust me, adhd strattera 10mg pills $84.00 all he writes about is his day and you’ll be rolling in the aisles! And he is one of my “blog parents”! If you check him out, adhd strattera 10mg pills $84.00 you have to read his archives – he’s been “blogging” since 1997!
    • Praying For Karis – at www.aup.org/Karis.

    • Australia – I want to volunteer to work at Roo Gully, adhd strattera 10mg pills $84.00 it is a sanctuary for kangaroos (and other animals) with the goal of getting them back into the wild.

    • St John’s – the one place in the Carribean I remember with fondness

Atarax 10 mg pills $82.00 Holy cow!

Atarax 10 mg pills $82.00 I never saw this in Microbiology!

Atarax 10 mg pills $82.00 Just a bunch of stressed out student nurses trying to cram in it into one summer session going five days a week for five hours a day.

Atarax 10 mg pills $82.00 Mr. Atarax 10 mg pills $82.00 Graham Positive here was nowhere in sight.

Atarax 10 mg pills $82.00 Then again, atarax 10 mg pills $82.00 I took Micro so long ago that if he was in my class he’d be wearing Angel Flight pants, atarax 10 mg pills $82.00 a silk shirt open to the lower sternum showing (hopefully) chest hair and gold chains, atarax 10 mg pills $82.00 as he walked to his desk in platform shoes and feathered hair a la Barry Gibb.

Atarax 10 mg pills $82.00 I think I need a cold shower.

hhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

Atarax 10 mg pills $82.00 Ah, atarax 10 mg pills $82.00 it isn’t often that I feel a “rant” coming on but there is something that I feel very strongly about.

Atarax 10 mg pills $82.00 Maybe it makes me a heartless nurse.

Atarax 10 mg pills $82.00 Perhaps it makes me a bad mother.

Atarax 10 mg pills $82.00 The issue?

Atarax 10 mg pills $82.00 I cannot stand it when conscious sedation is ordered for children who have a laceration.

Atarax 10 mg pills $82.00 I am old-school. Atarax 10 mg pills $82.00 I believe in wrapping them like a mummy, atarax 10 mg pills $82.00 placing them in a papoose and holding them during the suturing. Atarax 10 mg pills $82.00 It’s faster, atarax 10 mg pills $82.00 the pain stops after the lidocaine injections and the child is then up and ready to go immediately.

Atarax 10 mg pills $82.00 For the uninitiated, atarax 10 mg pills $82.00 “conscious sedation” is a term used when a patient needs an especially painful procedure done. Atarax 10 mg pills $82.00 An IV is placed and they are given medications that (1) reduce the pain (2) sedate the patient and (3) cause amnesia so the patient doesn’t remember what the procedure was like when they wake up.

Atarax 10 mg pills $82.00 During the procedure the patient is placed on a cardiac monitor, atarax 10 mg pills $82.00 oxygen, atarax 10 mg pills $82.00 a respiratory therapist is present in case there are airway problems, atarax 10 mg pills $82.00 reversal agents are kept at the bedside in case of emergency, atarax 10 mg pills $82.00 and the patient has the IV as previously mentioned.

Atarax 10 mg pills $82.00 It is a wonderful way to get patients of any age through procedures like reducing shoulder dislocations or fractures or hip prosthesis dislocations.

Atarax 10 mg pills $82.00 It also ties up one nurse with one patient for however long it takes that patient to recover. Atarax 10 mg pills $82.00 The patient is never left alone. Atarax 10 mg pills $82.00 The drugs are short acting, atarax 10 mg pills $82.00 but recovery can take as long as one hour for some patients, atarax 10 mg pills $82.00 depending on how much medication they were given and how fast they metabolize it. Atarax 10 mg pills $82.00 Vital signs are taken every five minutes during the procedure and then every 10-15 minutes after until the patient is awake, atarax 10 mg pills $82.00 able to tolerate clear fluids, atarax 10 mg pills $82.00 have vital signs near pre-procedure levels and can ambulate.

Atarax 10 mg pills $82.00 Is this really necessary for a child with a one-half inch laceration on his forehead?

Atarax 10 mg pills $82.00 Ah, atarax 10 mg pills $82.00 I hear the chorus now….

Atarax 10 mg pills $82.00 From the parents: “But it is so traumatic on my poor child to hold them down!”

Atarax 10 mg pills $82.00 They’ll get over it. Atarax 10 mg pills $82.00 I not only remember getting stitched at the age of three I still have the scar!

Atarax 10 mg pills $82.00 It does not “scar”you psychologically for life. Atarax 10 mg pills $82.00 Getting stitches is a part of life. Atarax 10 mg pills $82.00 Are we raising a generation of wimps for whom a boo-boo is a life altering trauma?

Atarax 10 mg pills $82.00 From the ER docs: “It’s hard to hit a moving target!”

Atarax 10 mg pills $82.00 Then your nurse doesn’t know how to hold. Atarax 10 mg pills $82.00 I developed the (not-patented) chest hold many, atarax 10 mg pills $82.00 many years ago where the child couldn’t move his head if he tried. Atarax 10 mg pills $82.00 Let’s just say that it involved removal of my scrub jacket and namebadge, atarax 10 mg pills $82.00 leaning over the gurney, atarax 10 mg pills $82.00 placing my chest on one side of the head and using my arm to surround the top of the child’s head and holding it against my chest.

Atarax 10 mg pills $82.00 Works every time.

Just a couple of my personal beliefs.

  • Every person getting conscious sedation, atarax 10 mg pills $82.00 including kids, atarax 10 mg pills $82.00 gets an IV whether or not the doc believes it is warranted. Atarax 10 mg pills $82.00 Emergency situations are rare, atarax 10 mg pills $82.00 but that patient is my responsibility, atarax 10 mg pills $82.00 too, atarax 10 mg pills $82.00 and my derriere is on the line if we aren’t prepared for them.
  • If conscious sedation is ordered, atarax 10 mg pills $82.00 I feel it is the doctor’s responsibility to explain to the parents exactly what that entails, atarax 10 mg pills $82.00 including oxygen, atarax 10 mg pills $82.00 monitoring, atarax 10 mg pills $82.00 IV medications, atarax 10 mg pills $82.00 etc. Atarax 10 mg pills $82.00 Just telling the parents that the patient will sleep through the procedure is not enough. Atarax 10 mg pills $82.00 They shouldn’t have to hear that from the nurse who is having them sign that they have received informed consent.

Atarax 10 mg pills $82.00 End of rant.

Atarax 10 mg pills $82.00 Now, atarax 10 mg pills $82.00 to end on a positive note:

Atarax 10 mg pills $82.00 Emergency room physicians are second only to plastic surgeons when it comes to stitching lacerations on patients of any age. Atarax 10 mg pills $82.00 I’ve seen some beautiful repair work by ER doctors in my time.
