Crestor 5mg pills $228.00 Sorry, crestor 5mg pills $228.00 I couldn’t resist.

Crestor 5mg pills $228.00 (I actually love that series, crestor 5mg pills $228.00 Jerry Jenkins is, crestor 5mg pills $228.00 ahem, crestor 5mg pills $228.00 one hell of a writer!)


It’s no secret that I’m a night person.

I’ve said before it is easier to stay up until 0700 than to get up at 0700!

And I prefer the night shift for many reasons, crestor 5mg pills $228.00 not the least of which is that there are less people around and you can spend more time with your patients.

And….I have no young children and can sleep when and how long I want. Crestor 5mg pills $228.00 Usually.

The males of the household have learned, crestor 5mg pills $228.00 sometimes painfully, crestor 5mg pills $228.00 that to wake me up results in a voice that makes Luciano Pavarotti sound like Barry White.

Crestor 5mg pills $228.00 But if I had to give advice to someone who was just starting the night shift (and that may be a few new grads out there), crestor 5mg pills $228.00 I can only tell you what works for me and I’ve learned this over the years through trial and error.

  • Put All Your Piggies In A Row
    • Try to get your shifts scheduled sequentially.
    • Under no circumstances allow yourself to be scheduled “one-on-and-one-off”. Crestor 5mg pills $228.00 Unless you live the hours of a night nurse whether you are working or not, crestor 5mg pills $228.00 this will do you in!. Crestor 5mg pills $228.00 It’s easier for me because I tend to be a human “Bat” (except I don’t hang upside down in a closet.)
    • Always have at least two days off in a row before returning to the night shift. Crestor 5mg pills $228.00 This is not easy if you are working full time, crestor 5mg pills $228.00 eight-hour shifts. Crestor 5mg pills $228.00 So….
      • I suggest that if you are given the opportunity, crestor 5mg pills $228.00 work only 4 days a week or less.
      • The differential of the night shift should make up for the missing day.
      • It is possible to work one-week-on/one-week off and I have done that before. Crestor 5mg pills $228.00 I remember liking it. Crestor 5mg pills $228.00 I don’t think I had gray hair then. Crestor 5mg pills $228.00 Not that I have it now mind you.
    • If you have the chance to work three 12-hour night shifts per week, crestor 5mg pills $228.00 try to avoid working them all in a row.
      • It will take you two days to recover, crestor 5mg pills $228.00 at least.
      • You will feel (and look) like death warmed over by the end of the third shift.
  • Don’t Give Your Piggies Roast Beef
    • I’m not sure what it is about nocturnal consumption, crestor 5mg pills $228.00 but I found that eating during the night caused bloating and discomfort.
      • A snack is okay, crestor 5mg pills $228.00 a few crackers with some milk or half a sandwhich.
      • Also, crestor 5mg pills $228.00 eating at night is a sure way to gain weight, crestor 5mg pills $228.00 especially if it is not a busy unit/night and you’re eating to stay awake or out of boredom.
    • Watch the coffee intake
      • If you’re like me, crestor 5mg pills $228.00 you’ll pour five cups and actually have time to drink about half a cup.
      • If you are sleeping in the morning, crestor 5mg pills $228.00 watch the caffeine after about 0400.
      • If you are an afternoon sleeper, crestor 5mg pills $228.00 it shouldn’t affect you.
      • And remember, crestor 5mg pills $228.00 coffee is acidic so can contribute if you have that bloating/discomfort discussed above.
  • Back at the Ranch
    • Make your environment sleep friendly
      • Get your room as dark as possible or sleep in the darkest possible area
      • Consider using a fan or another type of machine as “white noise”. Crestor 5mg pills $228.00 This will drown out neighborhood noise, crestor 5mg pills $228.00 barking dogs, crestor 5mg pills $228.00 cars, crestor 5mg pills $228.00etc.
    • If you can’t sleep
      • Get up. Crestor 5mg pills $228.00 Laying there trying to sleep is only going to make it worse.
      • Take a hot bath, crestor 5mg pills $228.00 read.
      • Be careful about using antihistamines to sleep, crestor 5mg pills $228.00 they can cause a “hangover” type feeling and you will be groggy while awake. Crestor 5mg pills $228.00 I, crestor 5mg pills $228.00 personally use melatonin but please do not constitute that as advice.
      • If you sleep for a few hours only and then are wide awake, crestor 5mg pills $228.00 try to take a nap before going to work.
    • Stay hydrated
      • Dehydration can cause headaches. Crestor 5mg pills $228.00 I left the night shift once after suffering from prolonged low-grade headaches that would last 5-6 days. Crestor 5mg pills $228.00 It was because I drank nothing but coffee and Diet Pepsi. Crestor 5mg pills $228.00 It had nothing to do with the shift.
  • So why put yourself through working the night shift?
    • Minimal management presence – not that management is bad, crestor 5mg pills $228.00 it just means less distractions from taking care of patients.
    • Group cohesiveness – night shift workers tend to take care of each other and there is much less back-biting.
    • Usually a less number of patients, crestor 5mg pills $228.00 giving you more of a chance to do more for them and get to know them better, crestor 5mg pills $228.00 at least in the ER.
    • A shift differential – where I work, crestor 5mg pills $228.00 it is rather substantial, crestor 5mg pills $228.00 thanks to the work of the California Nurses Association over the years.
    • You can be home for your family when they are awake.

Crestor 5mg pills $228.00 So night shift is a doable, crestor 5mg pills $228.00 often desirable shift to work. Crestor 5mg pills $228.00 It’s the best shift for me.

Crestor 5mg pills $228.00 But that old saying that a nurse needs to take care of herself first is truer in this situation than any other.

Crestor 5mg pills $228.00 If you are meant to be a night nurse, crestor 5mg pills $228.00 you will know it!

Depo-Medrol 16mg Pills $124.00


Tadalafil 50mg pills $351.00 Since when do patients leave the hospital looking like they are on a business trip?

Tadalafil 50mg pills $351.00 This guy even has had his shoes shined!

Tadalafil 50mg pills $351.00 The sentiment at the top of the photo is quite nice and very true.

Tadalafil 50mg pills $351.00 However, tadalafil 50mg pills $351.00 on the new nursing cap rating scale instigated by KACNAC (Kim’s Accreditation Commission on Nursing and Caps), tadalafil 50mg pills $351.00 this nursing cap is a 6.75 on the 0-10 scale.

Tadalafil 50mg pills $351.00 However, tadalafil 50mg pills $351.00 since very few nurses wear their cap, tadalafil 50mg pills $351.00 except me, tadalafil 50mg pills $351.00 I don’t believe this will put a cramp in anyone’s work habits.

Tadalafil 50mg pills $351.00 And besides, tadalafil 50mg pills $351.00 I don’t think I have the authority to impose it.

Tadalafil 50mg pills $351.00 But one can dream.


It it’s Tuesday if must be Grand Rounds! Today our host is our favorite New York nephrologoist at Kidney Notes.

I was surprised and honored to find that an Emergiblog post was selected as an “Editor’s Pick”.

Again, tadalafil 50mg pills $351.00 an amazing selection of stories, tadalafil 50mg pills $351.00 education and information. Tadalafil 50mg pills $351.00 “Walk” your keyboard on over and check it out (with or without your suitcase!).


I was happily blogging via WiFi at a local Seattle’s Best this afternoon (see above) and it totally rocked! I’m going to do it on a daily basis. Tadalafil 50mg pills $351.00 Being there during the day is wonderful because

  • Everyone who is studying is in school.
  • Everyone who works 9-5 is working 9-5.
  • Seattle’s Best, tadalafil 50mg pills $351.00 although owned by Starbucks, tadalafil 50mg pills $351.00 has better coffee and cleaner shops.
  • The coffee shop is attached to Borders bookstore so I am 20 feet away from a vast expanse of written literature and fun stuff like totally cool pens and stationery.
  • I’m easy to please.

Tadalafil 50mg pills $351.00 During this idyll time I received an IM from my son who informed me of the results of my husband’s visit with his surgeon today.

Tadalafil 50mg pills $351.00 His gallbladder was gangrenous.

Tadalafil 50mg pills $351.00 I’ll save the full story for Scared to Health.

Tadalafil 50mg pills $351.00 My reaction was one of total, tadalafil 50mg pills $351.00 retroactive shock. Tadalafil 50mg pills $351.00 My legs went numb.

Tadalafil 50mg pills $351.00 It’s a good thing I was sitting because blogging face down in a coffee shop would have attracted attention, tadalafil 50mg pills $351.00 I’m sure.

Tadalafil 50mg pills $351.00 I then did the most stupid thing I could have done. Tadalafil 50mg pills $351.00 I googled “gangrenous gallbladder mortality”.Wrong.

Tadalafil 50mg pills $351.00 It’s between 25-50% if surgery is not done in time. Tadalafil 50mg pills $351.00 The mortality rate was zero in one study of over 200 patients with a 21.5% incidence of gangrene when the surgery was performed on a timely basis.

Tadalafil 50mg pills $351.00 The problem is that a gangrenous gallbladder presents no differently than a regular gallbladder in terms of symptoms – the type of symptoms that bring people to an ER.

Tadalafil 50mg pills $351.00 How many times have we taken care of people with gallbladders that are, tadalafil 50mg pills $351.00 unknown to us, tadalafil 50mg pills $351.00 gangrenous, tadalafil 50mg pills $351.00 taken care of their pain, tadalafil 50mg pills $351.00 given them an ultrasound and sent them home to follow up with a surgeon in 1-2 days?

Tadalafil 50mg pills $351.00 The surgeon said she was surprised hubby was not sicker than he was given the state of the gallbladder upon removal. Tadalafil 50mg pills $351.00 It only had two tiny stones in it.

Tadalafil 50mg pills $351.00 I took the last sip of my latte, tadalafil 50mg pills $351.00 closed down my computer and on legs that weren’t exactly steady, tadalafil 50mg pills $351.00 met the kids after their movie and drove them to cross-country practice.

Tadalafil 50mg pills $351.00 Life goes on now, tadalafil 50mg pills $351.00 pretty much as it did two weeks before.

Tadalafil 50mg pills $351.00 I said a prayer of thanks as I walked to my car, tadalafil 50mg pills $351.00 shedding a few tears in the process.

Imitrex 50mg Pills $275.00

Voltaren 100mg pills $90.00 firenurses

Voltaren 100mg pills $90.00 This ad is for fire sprinklers.

Voltaren 100mg pills $90.00 Notice the quick and efficient nurses executing the hospital fire evacuation plan.

Voltaren 100mg pills $90.00 I guess they are waiting for the patients to become victims so they can then put their “quick plans” into good use.

Voltaren 100mg pills $90.00 The one on the far left looks like she has comes from a “dreaded harsh toilet tissue” ad.

Voltaren 100mg pills $90.00 The next one looks like she is eating an ice cream cone.

Voltaren 100mg pills $90.00 Hard to do in a fire, voltaren 100mg pills $90.00 don’t you think?

Voltaren 100mg pills $90.00 I mean, voltaren 100mg pills $90.00 it melts and all.

Voltaren 100mg pills $90.00 Then we have two with so much air in their heads they have risen spontaneously like human helium balloons.

Voltaren 100mg pills $90.00 The enthusiastic professional on the right is just counting the minutes until her shift is over.

Voltaren 100mg pills $90.00 I thought automatic sprinkler systems were a more recent invention.

Voltaren 100mg pills $90.00 Sure would wreck havoc on a nurse’s cap.


Voltaren 100mg pills $90.00 In my department, voltaren 100mg pills $90.00 the designated Charge Nurse is the triage nurse.

Voltaren 100mg pills $90.00 This can be tough on hellacious shifts because one cannot be in triage 100% of the time and really know what is going on in the department itself.

Voltaren 100mg pills $90.00 This is not as big a problem in my ED because, voltaren 100mg pills $90.00 well, voltaren 100mg pills $90.00 basically everyone is so experienced and self-sufficient there is no need of any major interventions. Voltaren 100mg pills $90.00 The Charge Nurse gets involved if there is a patient complaint, voltaren 100mg pills $90.00 a problem with getting a patient upstairs or re-arranging patients if a specific ED room is needed.

Voltaren 100mg pills $90.00 I love triage, voltaren 100mg pills $90.00 but don’t like being in charge.

Voltaren 100mg pills $90.00 In the huge tribe of health care I am an excellent Indian with no aspirations to the position of Chief.


Voltaren 100mg pills $90.00 There are three theories to how triage should be handled.

  • The Down and Dirty Doorway Destination Decision
    • Pass the triage room and go directly to Park Place, voltaren 100mg pills $90.00 meaning you park your derriere immediately in a place on a gurney.
    • Chest pain, voltaren 100mg pills $90.00 severe dyspnea, voltaren 100mg pills $90.00 CVA symptoms or hemmoraging at the secretary’s desk gets you this designation. Voltaren 100mg pills $90.00 Throwing up on the secretary’s desk can, voltaren 100mg pills $90.00 on some occasions, voltaren 100mg pills $90.00 also facilitate your entry into a room.
    • You usually meet 90% of the ED staff within one minute of arrival as they all converge to get you “settled” (an IV, voltaren 100mg pills $90.00 blood draw, voltaren 100mg pills $90.00 EKG, voltaren 100mg pills $90.00 portable chest and monitors all over your body, voltaren 100mg pills $90.00 foley or CPR if you’re unlucky). Voltaren 100mg pills $90.00 Then they all disappear.
  • Surf ’em and Turf ’em
    • A one sentence chief complaint, voltaren 100mg pills $90.00 multiple hash marks in a few boxes, voltaren 100mg pills $90.00 allergies and half a set of vitals as you visually surf the patient.
    • Then you turf ’em to the waiting room to wait for registration.
    • NEXT!
  • The Triage Trifecta
    • A complete history of the present illness with focused assessment.
    • Past medical history including surgeries, voltaren 100mg pills $90.00 last period, voltaren 100mg pills $90.00 pregnancy status (yes/no), voltaren 100mg pills $90.00 Gravida/Parida, voltaren 100mg pills $90.00 and immunization status including last DT when appropriate.
    • A full set of vital signs including pain scale, voltaren 100mg pills $90.00 weights on pedi patients and head circumference on infants (don’t get me started on that one)

Voltaren 100mg pills $90.00 There is no problem with the first system – emergent patients are emergently treated and that is universal.

Voltaren 100mg pills $90.00 So how far should you go when triaging a patient? How much information is too much information? Can you ever have too much information about a patient?

Voltaren 100mg pills $90.00 For the record, voltaren 100mg pills $90.00 I’m a “Teresa Trifecta”. Voltaren 100mg pills $90.00 Every inch of that triage sheet is filled, voltaren 100mg pills $90.00 checked, voltaren 100mg pills $90.00 slashed, voltaren 100mg pills $90.00 listed and signed. Voltaren 100mg pills $90.00 I ask about previous surgeries. Voltaren 100mg pills $90.00 I send families home for the medications or the list they forgot if the chief complaint warrants it.

Voltaren 100mg pills $90.00 But….I’m confused.

Voltaren 100mg pills $90.00 I’ve been told by a colleague that, voltaren 100mg pills $90.00 in her opinion, voltaren 100mg pills $90.00 I’m too thorough. Voltaren 100mg pills $90.00 Spit ’em out faster is her philosophy (a full triage with a patient that speaks English takes me 5 minutes, voltaren 100mg pills $90.00 a child slightly longer).

Voltaren 100mg pills $90.00 I’ve had physicians tell me they love my triage notes, voltaren 100mg pills $90.00 that they know what to expect when they go to see the patient.

Voltaren 100mg pills $90.00 How can you just “spit ’em out faster” when some EDs require that tetanus boosters and fever control medications be given at triage? Along with the usual ice, voltaren 100mg pills $90.00 elevation and the occasional pressure dressing or splint? Or the extra time it takes to get rectal temps on small children? Or the writing of 15-20 medications for the elderly?

Voltaren 100mg pills $90.00 It’s a catch-22. Voltaren 100mg pills $90.00 You are supposed to move faster because there are more people to see, voltaren 100mg pills $90.00 but every year more information is required from each patient at the point of intake.

Voltaren 100mg pills $90.00 I say that the more information you collect up front the better. Voltaren 100mg pills $90.00 Some will say otherwise and as long as we do the mandated check marking, voltaren 100mg pills $90.00 it gets by quality control.

Voltaren 100mg pills $90.00 But 5 years from now, voltaren 100mg pills $90.00 I don’t want to be sitting in a courtroom with a practically blank triage note blown up for a jury with my name on it.

Voltaren 100mg pills $90.00 So “Teresa Trifecta” I shall remain.

Voltaren 100mg pills $90.00 When you’re dealing with someone’s health, voltaren 100mg pills $90.00 there is no such thing as too much information.
