CHANGE OF SHIFT – June 22, 2006

Is this how nurses handled a “Code Brown” in the old days?

This was definitely before my time!

Nurses, ya gotta love ’em.

Even when it’s chemical warfare, they’re still all in white!

But I’d put my cap on top of the mask. I mean really, are they truly in uniform without it?

They look like something in an old horror “B” movie from the fifties.

Oh, what the guys from Mystery Science Theater 3000 (RIP) could have done with this one!


Okay, Volume One, Number One of “Change of Shift – A Nursing Blog Carnival” will go “live” on June 22, 2006, right here at Emergiblog.

Deadline for submissions is June 21, 2006 at 5:00 PM PDT.

Follow the link for information on where to send your submission. You can go directly through me, or you can go through BlogCarnival.

  • To start, “Change of Shift” will post every other Thursday beginning July 13th.
  • I’ll want to work out any bugs and see how the first one goes.
  • I am under the impression that T-Mobile has many wireless internet locations in the Republic of Ireland and I intend to go try them out (if you get my drift).

Shane and I are working on some design changes for the “Change of Shift” link above, and while it is still, technically, Emergiblog, it will eventually contain the days of the “carnival”, the “archives” and maybe even a schedule of hosts if it really takes off.

Okay, folks, it’s really happening!

    Another question: Does it need to be a recent post from our blog (like Grand Rounds?) or an older previously posted one? I have some about nurses I’d love to use but they aren’t new…

    Hi Hannah!

    Any post from any time is fine – it doesn’t have to be a new post at all!
