Ilosone 250mg Pills $234.00

Nexium 40mg pills $123.00 Another Great Moment In Medicine:

Nexium 40mg pills $123.00 All the nurses go to their rooms and every resident in the world gets a good night’s sleep!

Nexium 40mg pills $123.00 Sorry, nexium 40mg pills $123.00 nursing colleagues.

Nexium 40mg pills $123.00 I couldn’t resist.

Nexium 40mg pills $123.00 It was my first thought when I saw the photo!

Nexium 40mg pills $123.00 This is actually a Parke Davis ad, nexium 40mg pills $123.00 one of a series.

Nexium 40mg pills $123.00 It’s a medieval hospital.

Nexium 40mg pills $123.00 Doesn’t it seem like a lot of wasted space in the center there? How did they heat the thing?

Nexium 40mg pills $123.00 The nurse up front looks like someone just told her she had to do mandatory overtime.


There are some new links in town! Check out an new blog by ER physician Charity Doc , nexium 40mg pills $123.00 or soon-to-be Student Nurse Jack and Misadventurous Melissa who is a nurse colleague in southern CA. Nexium 40mg pills $123.00 I’ve also discovered Krista at Picklecakes , nexium 40mg pills $123.00 also a nurse and not afraid to tell it like it is. Nexium 40mg pills $123.00 I’ve also added to my patient blog roll call recently with Patricia at The Multiple Sclerosis Companion.


I sure would love to hear the whole story about why Rich at Geek Nurse had to shut down his blog.

Nexium 40mg pills $123.00 I was sorry to see that.

I have not worked in an ICU since 1989 and I was learning a lot from him, nexium 40mg pills $123.00 especially since I’ve never worked a Pedi ICU.


Nexium 40mg pills $123.00 I love the job I have now and I wonder what I would do if given the ultimatum to shut down Emergiblog.

Nexium 40mg pills $123.00 I know!

Nexium 40mg pills $123.00 I’d quit and put up an online tip jar!

Nexium 40mg pills $123.00 I could get free care in the ER!

Nexium 40mg pills $123.00 I’d have to find a place for the homeless with wireless internet connection, nexium 40mg pills $123.00 a place to charge up my iPod, nexium 40mg pills $123.00 my cell phone, nexium 40mg pills $123.00 my coffee pot and have access to American Idol, nexium 40mg pills $123.00 BBC America and the Cartoon Network, nexium 40mg pills $123.00 but hey! All in the name of free speech!

Nexium 40mg pills $123.00 In all seriousness, nexium 40mg pills $123.00 we miss you, nexium 40mg pills $123.00 Rich. Nexium 40mg pills $123.00 Let us know “where” you are. Nexium 40mg pills $123.00 You can’t keep a good nurse down. Nexium 40mg pills $123.00 Especially in the blogosphere.


Nexium 40mg pills $123.00 Now that life has settled back into it’s normal routine after family health issues and lots of extra shifts, nexium 40mg pills $123.00 it sure is nice to catch up on all the posts I missed. Nexium 40mg pills $123.00 I’m only a third of the way through my list of blogs (see sidebar). Nexium 40mg pills $123.00 At least with my “live bookmark” feature on Firefox I can see who has new posts and who doesn’t.


I’ve decided to give Blogger one more chance.

Nexium 40mg pills $123.00 I’ve checked out Typepad and I actually “own” the “” domain name over at, nexium 40mg pills $123.00 I just haven’t had the time to actually sit down and work with it.

Nexium 40mg pills $123.00 I’m kind of attached to this format and changing designs is like getting a plastic surgery make-over. Nexium 40mg pills $123.00 It would still be me but it wouldn’t “look” like me.

Nexium 40mg pills $123.00 But one more major breakdown that affects this blog and I will become so good at html my new site will look like the Taj Mahal.

Nexium 40mg pills $123.00 Blogger may be free, nexium 40mg pills $123.00 but so is half the care I give in the ER. Nexium 40mg pills $123.00 I still have to do my best.


For one shining moment, nexium 40mg pills $123.00 I was a Large Mammal over at the ttlb ecosystem. Nexium 40mg pills $123.00 Now I am a Maurauding Marsupial again. Nexium 40mg pills $123.00 Sigh. Nexium 40mg pills $123.00 How can that be when my Techorati score is up?

Nexium 40mg pills $123.00 Yes, nexium 40mg pills $123.00 I pay attention to little things like ttlb and Site Meter.

Nexium 40mg pills $123.00 Oh well. Nexium 40mg pills $123.00 At least having a marsupial pouch is handy for my trauma scissors….

Cefixime 100mg Pills $126.00

Neurontin 600mg pills $160.00 “Mary Louise Shines”?

Neurontin 600mg pills $160.00 Yeah, neurontin 600mg pills $160.00 and I’m Catherine Zeta Jones.

Neurontin 600mg pills $160.00 This is no real nurse. Neurontin 600mg pills $160.00 I haven’t seen her in a single recruitment ad in all the hours I’ve spent searching the internet.

Neurontin 600mg pills $160.00 Interestingly enough, neurontin 600mg pills $160.00 she comes from New York, neurontin 600mg pills $160.00 just like Beulah France, neurontin 600mg pills $160.00 RN, neurontin 600mg pills $160.00 our favorite nurse consultant when it comes to harsh toilet tissue.

Neurontin 600mg pills $160.00 So we can avert the nursing shortage and gain valuable staffing by just using Pepsodent?

Neurontin 600mg pills $160.00 “You’ll wonder where the yellow went, neurontin 600mg pills $160.00 when you brush your teeth with Pepsodent!” I did not make that up. Neurontin 600mg pills $160.00 It’s the old ad jingle.

Neurontin 600mg pills $160.00 Never mind what year.


Neurontin 600mg pills $160.00

Neurontin 600mg pills $160.00 But wait!

Neurontin 600mg pills $160.00 Now she is recruiting for…clear skin?

Neurontin 600mg pills $160.00 She would never have recruited me.

Neurontin 600mg pills $160.00 She looks like a Stepford Nurse.

Neurontin 600mg pills $160.00 She speaks in thought bubbles.

Neurontin 600mg pills $160.00 And her cap is really yukky.

Neurontin 600mg pills $160.00 Hey, neurontin 600mg pills $160.00 I have priorities, neurontin 600mg pills $160.00 ya know.


Neurontin 600mg pills $160.00 Ever thought about being an ER nurse?

Neurontin 600mg pills $160.00 Ever wonder if you “have what it takes”?

Neurontin 600mg pills $160.00 I didn’t think I did until one slow day in ICU I floated down to a tiny, neurontin 600mg pills $160.00 three-bed ER and fell in love with a whole new world.So here is my own, neurontin 600mg pills $160.00 personal subjective take on what it takes to be an ER nurse:

  • A Strong Personality
    • Timid, neurontin 600mg pills $160.00 fragile….no place for that in the ER. Neurontin 600mg pills $160.00 Things will get tense and tempers will fly.
    • Do you cry if someone says “Boo!” in the wrong way? If you are a “Sensitive Sam”, neurontin 600mg pills $160.00 you will have a hard time. Neurontin 600mg pills $160.00 I know. Neurontin 600mg pills $160.00 I was a “Sensitive Sam”. Neurontin 600mg pills $160.00 Then I got older. Neurontin 600mg pills $160.00 Now I can say “Boo”! right back and then some.
    • Alternatively, neurontin 600mg pills $160.00 if you are the type to hold a grudge, neurontin 600mg pills $160.00 the ER is not for you.
    • That doesn’t mean you have to be a loud, neurontin 600mg pills $160.00 boisterous person. Neurontin 600mg pills $160.00 Two of the best nurses I ever worked with were extremely quiet. Neurontin 600mg pills $160.00 They didn’t say much, neurontin 600mg pills $160.00 but they were the epitome of efficiency and their patients were in superb hands.
  • An Assertive Personality
    • All nurses are patient advocates, neurontin 600mg pills $160.00 but in the ER you do not often have the luxury of time.
      • Occasionally you will find that decisions are being reached (as in admit vs. Neurontin 600mg pills $160.00 return home) that you, neurontin 600mg pills $160.00 as the nurse, neurontin 600mg pills $160.00 can influence.
      • If you feel a decision is being reached that is not in your patient’s best interest (weak while ambulating and lives alone, neurontin 600mg pills $160.00 for example), neurontin 600mg pills $160.00 you must speak up. Neurontin 600mg pills $160.00 Can you do that?
    • The easiest doctors you will ever deal with will be the ER docs. Neurontin 600mg pills $160.00 There is a sense of teamwork and communication between the docs and nurses that is really unique to the ER.
      • You will be dealing with specialists from every department: surgeons, neurontin 600mg pills $160.00 eye specialists, neurontin 600mg pills $160.00 hospitalists, neurontin 600mg pills $160.00 cardiologists, neurontin 600mg pills $160.00 neuro docs, neurontin 600mg pills $160.00 etc.
      • They don’t always know the policies of the ER.
        • sometimes they will make it quite clear that they could not care less about the policies of the department.
        • It will, neurontin 600mg pills $160.00 occasionally, neurontin 600mg pills $160.00 be up to you to assert that you cannot carry out a specific order because or ask them if an order can be done after admission to free up an ER bed. Neurontin 600mg pills $160.00 Are you willing to do that?
  • Energetic
    • If your idea of aerobic exercise is to click the remote twice in a row, neurontin 600mg pills $160.00 you need not apply to the ER.
      • You will move. Neurontin 600mg pills $160.00 There will be shifts when you never stop moving. Neurontin 600mg pills $160.00 You need to be willing to walk in that door with roller skates on and well oiled to boot.
      • You have to be willing to put in the energy that the job requires. Neurontin 600mg pills $160.00 Can you do that?
  • Stamina
    • Energy is a willingness to work. Neurontin 600mg pills $160.00 Stamina is the ability to work.
    • You will never know what you will be dealing with on any given shift
    • You have to be able to go the distance – finish the shift giving 100%.
      • Often without breaks, neurontin 600mg pills $160.00 sometimes without dinner.
      • Maybe even after your scheduled shift is over. Neurontin 600mg pills $160.00 Can you handle it physically?
  • The Ability to Prioritize
    • You have four patients, neurontin 600mg pills $160.00 two cardiacs, neurontin 600mg pills $160.00 one going to the cath lab, neurontin 600mg pills $160.00 one GI Bleeder (stated at triage) and a patient with an ingrown toenail. Neurontin 600mg pills $160.00 Who ya gonna call?
      • Sorry, neurontin 600mg pills $160.00 the Ghostbusters are busy – you make the decisions.
        • What orders go first on which patients?
        • You can always ask your co-workers for help, neurontin 600mg pills $160.00 but you need to know what you want them to do! Can you make decisions on the fly?
        • Can you handle more than one crises at a time? Are you willing to take the chance that you will have to? Does the idea exhilarate you or make you nauseated?
  • The Ability to be Flexible
    • When your co-workers get overloaded (see above), neurontin 600mg pills $160.00 are you able to see beyond your assignment and help prioritize their care?
    • When your rooms are empty, neurontin 600mg pills $160.00 are you willing to discharge, neurontin 600mg pills $160.00 start IVs, neurontin 600mg pills $160.00 medicate your colleague’s patients? Are you willing to ask them if they would like your help?
    • Someone calls in sick. Neurontin 600mg pills $160.00 Are you willing to pitch in and help cover for them?
    • Your co-worker is having a bad day….sorta bitchy. Neurontin 600mg pills $160.00 Are you willing to cut them some slack?
    • The doc wants to add some tests to the patient, neurontin 600mg pills $160.00 increasing your already heavy workload. Neurontin 600mg pills $160.00 Can you take it in stride?
  • Attitude
    • You must have a positive attitude.
      • No one wants to be around constant bitching or fault-finding.
      • That can drag down the morale in an ER faster than an unsuccessful code
      • Can you put on a positive front even when you are not feeling it?
    • Then, neurontin 600mg pills $160.00 again, neurontin 600mg pills $160.00 there is a time and a place for ventilating. Neurontin 600mg pills $160.00 The nurse’s station or the patient’s room is not it. Neurontin 600mg pills $160.00 Can you wait to complain until it’s appropriate?
    • Your patients already feel bad. Neurontin 600mg pills $160.00 They are sick, neurontin 600mg pills $160.00 they are angry, neurontin 600mg pills $160.00 they are tired, neurontin 600mg pills $160.00 they are impatient. Neurontin 600mg pills $160.00 Can you smile and be upbeat when everyone around you is not?
    • Can you see your patient as an individual and empathize, neurontin 600mg pills $160.00 not just see them as the “abdominal pain in the back room”?

Neurontin 600mg pills $160.00 And now the controversial statement:

Neurontin 600mg pills $160.00 I do not believe that a nurse should begin their ER career as a new graduate. Neurontin 600mg pills $160.00 It is imperative that she/he gain the skills of prioritizing and assessment/evaluation on at least a monitored unit.

Neurontin 600mg pills $160.00 The “feeling in your gut that something isn’t right” comes from your experience outside the ER. Neurontin 600mg pills $160.00 You need to have enough experience to have developed that sixth sense.

Neurontin 600mg pills $160.00 You should be comfortable with drips, neurontin 600mg pills $160.00coding and defibrillating (basically, neurontin 600mg pills $160.00 Critical Care) well before coming to the ER. Neurontin 600mg pills $160.00 The other stuff is just clinical and can be picked up quickly.

Neurontin 600mg pills $160.00 You have to be able to carry your own weight.

Neurontin 600mg pills $160.00 There are always exceptions, neurontin 600mg pills $160.00 I have worked with nurses who are barely out of school who were made to work ER. Neurontin 600mg pills $160.00 But they are few and far between.

Neurontin 600mg pills $160.00 If you were meant for the ER you will love every minute. Neurontin 600mg pills $160.00 If you were not meant for it, neurontin 600mg pills $160.00 you will know almost immediately.

Neurontin 600mg pills $160.00 I think it may be in our genes…….
