Buy Cheap Generic Viagra

Buy cheap generic viagra scrip

Buy cheap generic viagra I can just imagine the dialog for this photo:

Buy cheap generic viagra “Why Bob, buy cheap generic viagra that Doctor Jones is just wonderful! He wrote this prescription for fifteen hundred tablets of Valium!”

Buy cheap generic viagra Bob says, buy cheap generic viagra “Why that’s wonderful, buy cheap generic viagra dear!”

Buy cheap generic viagra Bob thinks, buy cheap generic viagra “Oh, buy cheap generic viagra thank god! Now maybe she’ll get off my back and I can read my newspaper in peace!”

Buy cheap generic viagra Better living through chemistry!

********************************

The life of an emergency department nurse is often chaotic and stressful. Buy cheap generic viagra If “a picture is worth a thousand words”, buy cheap generic viagra let me take a moment to actually show you what a typical shift in a community ER might look like.

Disclaimer: those depicted in the following photographs shall remain nameless to comply with current HIPAA regulations regarding patient confidentiality.

Buy cheap generic viagra Any visit to the emergency department begins with triage.

Buy cheap generic viagra Here, buy cheap generic viagra we have a patient with a chief complaint of pain, buy cheap generic viagra nausea and feeling as though he is “full of air”.

Buy cheap generic viagra The patient’s wife reports increasing incidents of the patient hiding behind chairs and flinging feces in her direction, buy cheap generic viagra thereby causing increased stress in the home.

Buy cheap generic viagra It is important to note that although the patient is smiling, buy cheap generic viagra he reports pain to be a 10/10. Buy cheap generic viagra Nurses must be careful to take the patient’s word and not make value judgments based on outward signs of pain or a lack thereof.

Buy cheap generic viagra On arrival to the room, buy cheap generic viagra the patient immediately asked for something to eat. Buy cheap generic viagra This is not an unusual situation, buy cheap generic viagra as 98.6% of all nauseated patients become hungry on arrival.

Buy cheap generic viagra A banana was given.

*****

Buy cheap generic viagra collaboration

Buy cheap generic viagra Communication is the heart of collaboration.

Buy cheap generic viagra Here, buy cheap generic viagra our intrepid emergency department nurse pleasantly explains to a primary care physician the purpose of the medication reconciliation form.

Buy cheap generic viagra Dr. Buy cheap generic viagra Primary is astounded at the amount of work the nurses do to make his job of ordering easier. Buy cheap generic viagra He vows to make sure he completes the form in the future. Buy cheap generic viagra Another ER success story!

Buy cheap generic viagra I’m sure holding Dr. Buy cheap generic viagra Primary by the back of the neck had nothing to do with it…

*****

compressions

Buy cheap generic viagra CPR certification is one of the more important requirements of emergency department nursing.

Buy cheap generic viagra Here, buy cheap generic viagra we see one of the ER staff working diligently, buy cheap generic viagra practicing chest compressions on a colleague.

Buy cheap generic viagra Uh oh! It seems that someone has forgotten the “R” of CPR and now their colleague is exhibiting decerebrate posturing.

Buy cheap generic viagra No problem! It takes more than profound anoxia to keep an ER nurse down!

Buy cheap generic viagra Our posturing partner finished the shift and managed to make it home before calling in brain-damaged.

Buy cheap generic viagra The nurse was, buy cheap generic viagra however, buy cheap generic viagra counseled for not breathing on the job.

*****

blog

Buy cheap generic viagra Technology plays an important part in emergency department medical records.

Buy cheap generic viagra Computers have made it easier to read blogs on the job access patient’s medical records, buy cheap generic viagra thereby improving continuity of care.

Buy cheap generic viagra Here we have Dr. Buy cheap generic viagra PuterGuy and our hard-working ER nurse perusing the previous history of one of the patients in the department.

Buy cheap generic viagra Hmmm….

Buy cheap generic viagra It seems this patient has a family history of feces flinging.

*****

coworkers

Buy cheap generic viagra Ah, buy cheap generic viagra cameraderie! How would ER nurses survive without it?

Buy cheap generic viagra It’s your coworkers who have your back, buy cheap generic viagra help you when you are swamped, buy cheap generic viagra fill-in for you when you are sick, buy cheap generic viagra take the feces-slinging patient when you’ve had enough and basically make coming to work a joy.

Buy cheap generic viagra They also hold you up when you are sleeping at 0500, buy cheap generic viagra as is obviously happening with our hard-working ER nurse.

*****

Buy cheap generic viagra unitclerk

Buy cheap generic viagra This concludes our pictorial look at a day in the life of an ER nurse.

Buy cheap generic viagra In conclusion, buy cheap generic viagra when things get hairy, buy cheap generic viagra the department is bursting at the seams and you don’t think you can take another step or read another order…

Buy cheap generic viagra …don’t forget to hug your administrative assistant/unit clerk.

Buy cheap generic viagra They’re the ones who actually run the department, buy cheap generic viagra anyway.

******************************

No emergency nurses were harmed in the making of this pictorial.

All photos taken with an iPhone, buy cheap generic viagra which was not mine. Buy cheap generic viagra Because I don’t have one. Buy cheap generic viagra Yet.

This is dedicated to all the ER nurses who think the night shift doesn’t do anything. Buy cheap generic viagra I hope this dispels any of those unfounded notions!

    I have a special place in my heart for ER nurses. I love this. My daughter practiced ER nursing, now ped. ICU. I am a former nurse though no longer practicing.And my brother was one of the forerunners of emergency medicine, Ron Krome. He recently authored a book about practicing in the ER called the Floaters Log, from the “olden days”, by todays standards anyway.

    Very Cute!!

    Not so cute (an on a different topic) are the comments that seem to frequent your blog recently that appear to come from posters who don’t have much to say. Emergency Nursing, DFASTEST, Last Medical News, Fitnessbook.com on this page. What is up with those? does this have anything to do with the stack overflow at line 156 that I encounter each time I visit the comment section?

    @Margaret:
    As Kim’s official Web Guy, I’ll step in and answer your questions for her 🙂

    Those pointless comments are called trackback spam. We try to keep them off, but they’re so sneaky.

    And the Stack Overflow should be fixed now. Not sure why it suddenly started happening, but I’ve removed the line that was causing it.

    Thanks for bringing these up!

    Nice job, Kim: fun to read.

    Your patient seems very happy by the end of day – 10/10 successfully reduced, apparently. Are he/her and the doctor related? Noticed a bit of a family resemblance.

    Actually, I’m a little disappointed that none of the ER nurses in the pictorial were wearing nursing caps rating 10/10 (on the ECRS). They need to set a better example.
