Elavil 10mg Pills $84.00

Elavil 10mg pills $84.00 dietaryclass

Elavil 10mg pills $84.00 Somehow I missed the class on jell-o making in nursing school.

Elavil 10mg pills $84.00 Cherry Ames had to take a class on how to fix up a nice tray, elavil 10mg pills $84.00 but cooking was the least of my worries in college.

Elavil 10mg pills $84.00 And what’s up with this “girls” thing?

Elavil 10mg pills $84.00 These are soon-to-be professional women. Elavil 10mg pills $84.00 Anyway, elavil 10mg pills $84.00 it’s a lie. Elavil 10mg pills $84.00 Jell-O is not always welcomed by the patient.

Elavil 10mg pills $84.00 Especially if it’s green.


Geeze. Elavil 10mg pills $84.00 Today instead of signing a chart with my usual “K.McAllister, elavil 10mg pills $84.00 RN, elavil 10mg pills $84.00 a co-worker noticed I signed it “K. Elavil 10mg pills $84.00 McAllister, elavil 10mg pills $84.00 .com”.




Elavil 10mg pills $84.00 Adrienne Zurub spent 26 years of her life as a member of the Cleveland Clinic open heart/heart transplant surgery team.

Elavil 10mg pills $84.00 A couple of weeks ago, elavil 10mg pills $84.00 after almost three decades of professional nursing in the premier heart surgery center, elavil 10mg pills $84.00 she was fired.

Elavil 10mg pills $84.00 Why?

Elavil 10mg pills $84.00 She wrote a book.

Elavil 10mg pills $84.00 This book.

Elavil 10mg pills $84.00 It’s a book about, elavil 10mg pills $84.00 well, elavil 10mg pills $84.00 Adrienne Zurub! A “half-century grrl”, elavil 10mg pills $84.00 registered nurse, elavil 10mg pills $84.00 wife, elavil 10mg pills $84.00 spoken-word poet, elavil 10mg pills $84.00 mother, elavil 10mg pills $84.00 stand-up comic, elavil 10mg pills $84.00 daughter and writer.

Elavil 10mg pills $84.00 Through stories and vignettes, elavil 10mg pills $84.00 she describes people, elavil 10mg pills $84.00 places and events that shaped her growth in all these areas.

Elavil 10mg pills $84.00 It’s natural that some of these vignettes would be be about her time on the prestigious heart surgery service.

Elavil 10mg pills $84.00 And the characters that populate the cardiac surgery suites. Elavil 10mg pills $84.00 Doctors, elavil 10mg pills $84.00 patients and nurses.


I had to know what ticked off Cleveland Clinic so badly that they felt they had to terminate Adrienne’s employment.

After all, elavil 10mg pills $84.00 this book isn’t about Cleveland Clinic, elavil 10mg pills $84.00 it’s about Adrienne.

Does Cleveland Clinic have a institutional ego problem or was Adrienne off-the-wall?

I decided to buy the book and judge for myself.

I’m glad I got it when I did – amazon.com sold out of it right after I ordered it!

I read it in one sitting.


Was it because she was brutally honest about the environment she worked in, elavil 10mg pills $84.00 the team she worked with?

The brilliant and the arrogant? The skilled and the misogynistic? The exhausted and the doormats?

Surgeons yelling at nurses? Surgeons yelling at patients? Patients yelling at surgeons?

What did Cleveland Clinic find objectionable about the fact that the heart team is comprised of unbelievably talented, elavil 10mg pills $84.00 dedicated doctors and nurses who are inherently human… and, elavil 10mg pills $84.00 rarely, elavil 10mg pills $84.00 all too fallible?


Maybe it was the patient stories.

Surely these are composites. Elavil 10mg pills $84.00 Twenty-six years of surgery experience would tend to provide a lot of samples.

Was it the patient who tried to conduct the OR? The one who told a surgeon to go-to-hell by a rather extraordinary feat?

Or the ones that made my throat and eyes burn as I tried not to cry so I could finish the story?

Which ones did Cleveland Clinic disapprove of?


Then again, elavil 10mg pills $84.00 maybe it’s the fact that despite “magnet” status, elavil 10mg pills $84.00 Cleveland Clinic does not treat their nurses with the same respect and deference they show to the doctors.

A keychain here, elavil 10mg pills $84.00 a water bottle there, elavil 10mg pills $84.00 an occasional T-shirt instead of decent pay and benefits.

Or the fact that a fancy chicken dinner and a watch is considered a big treat after twenty-five years and Adrienne wasn’t buying into it.

Cleveland Clinic couldn’t possibly have been upset with that. Elavil 10mg pills $84.00 They certainly don’t have the copyright on paying lip service to how much they value their nurses and then treating them like so much chattel.


Adrienne herself describes the book as “provocative” and it is!

And yet, elavil 10mg pills $84.00 it is not an “in-your-face” diatribe, elavil 10mg pills $84.00 it is more like a “face-to-face” look at an intelligent, elavil 10mg pills $84.00 funny fifty-something nurse with opinions on pretty much everything, elavil 10mg pills $84.00 including her time as an RN at the Cleveland Clinic.

They say nursing has no “voice”. Elavil 10mg pills $84.00 Well, elavil 10mg pills $84.00 Adrienne has one. Elavil 10mg pills $84.00 And she is paying the price for it.

I hope she laughs all the way to the bank with her writing and her stand-up comedy.

She deserves success.

Buy the book.

And if you are put off by honest, elavil 10mg pills $84.00 humorous, elavil 10mg pills $84.00 poignant, elavil 10mg pills $84.00 earthy, elavil 10mg pills $84.00 “provocative” literature with an “adult” word here and there…..

Buy it anyway!
