Prandin 2mg Pills $190.00

Prandin 2mg pills $190.00

Prandin 2mg pills $190.00 Did you know there was actually a call for nurses in the Revolutionary War?

Prandin 2mg pills $190.00 I found this blurb on the Women in the U.S. Prandin 2mg pills $190.00 Army website, prandin 2mg pills $190.00 which is also where I found this poster.

Prandin 2mg pills $190.00 I’ll reproduce it here, prandin 2mg pills $190.00 I have no actual author to credit, prandin 2mg pills $190.00 but the reference is the link above:

Prandin 2mg pills $190.00 “Shortly after establishment of the Continental Army on 14 June 1775, prandin 2mg pills $190.00 Major General Horatio Gates reported to Commander-in-Chief George Washington that “the sick suffered much for want of good female Nurses.” General Washington then asked Congress for “a matron to supervise the nurses, prandin 2mg pills $190.00 bedding, prandin 2mg pills $190.00 etc., prandin 2mg pills $190.00” and for nurses “to attend the sick and obey the matron’s orders.” In July 1775, prandin 2mg pills $190.00 a plan was submitted to the Second Continental Congress that provided one nurse for every ten patients and provided “that a matron be allotted to every hundred sick or wounded.’ “

Prandin 2mg pills $190.00 Hey – they actually had patient ratios back then (“one nurse for every ten…”)! I guess we don’t “obey the Matron” anymore. Prandin 2mg pills $190.00 Now the “Matron” is called Joint Commission!


The title of this post is in keeping with Dr. Prandin 2mg pills $190.00 Rich’s Grand Rounds theme of “Independence Day”. Prandin 2mg pills $190.00 Of course the first thing I wanted to do was put up a pic of Jeff Goldblum, prandin 2mg pills $190.00 but he meant the actual holiday!

So, prandin 2mg pills $190.00 a paraphrase of Patrick Henry’s famous statement inspired the following post.

It doesn’t take a bit of government intervention to implement.

That alone is amazing.


Empathy: the ability to understand and share the feelings of another.


She’s in her mid thirties. Prandin 2mg pills $190.00 First pregnancy, prandin 2mg pills $190.00 just found out she was expecting earlier in the week. Prandin 2mg pills $190.00 Home pregnancy test; hasn’t even had time to make an appointment with her doctor.

Tonight she began spotting. Prandin 2mg pills $190.00 Nothing major, prandin 2mg pills $190.00 but she knows something isn’t right. Prandin 2mg pills $190.00 She is cramping. Prandin 2mg pills $190.00 And she is shaking. Prandin 2mg pills $190.00 Tearful. Prandin 2mg pills $190.00 Her husband is at her side. Prandin 2mg pills $190.00 He doesn’t know what to say, prandin 2mg pills $190.00 but he is worried. Prandin 2mg pills $190.00 Asking a lot of questions.

What does she need?

She needs a nurse who can empathize with what she is going through. Prandin 2mg pills $190.00 You see, prandin 2mg pills $190.00 we know that many, prandin 2mg pills $190.00 many pregnancies end in a miscarriage. Prandin 2mg pills $190.00 We also know that you can have spotting early in pregnancy and still have a perfectly healthy pregnancy/baby. Prandin 2mg pills $190.00 We know that if you are having a miscarriage, prandin 2mg pills $190.00 there is nothing in the world that will stop it.

But she doesn’t. Prandin 2mg pills $190.00 She’s scared, prandin 2mg pills $190.00 she is bleeding, prandin 2mg pills $190.00 and will probably be grieving the loss of her baby within a few hours. Prandin 2mg pills $190.00 She doesn’t need a nurse who rolls their eyes because she is “over-reacting”.

She needs empathy.


He is in his mid-twenties. Prandin 2mg pills $190.00 He vomited once (or twice) and has abdominal pain. Prandin 2mg pills $190.00 Feels like hell, prandin 2mg pills $190.00 is pale and pretty sure is he is about to vomit again. Prandin 2mg pills $190.00 He called his mom to drive him into the ER.

Pretty dramatic presentation. Prandin 2mg pills $190.00 Dizzy when upright, prandin 2mg pills $190.00 mom wheeled him in via wheelchair.

He’s scared. Prandin 2mg pills $190.00 He’s uncomfortable and honestly thinks he may be dying, prandin 2mg pills $190.00 or at least on the verge of dehydration. Prandin 2mg pills $190.00 All he wants is to stop vomiting and feel better.

We know that vomiting is self-limiting. Prandin 2mg pills $190.00 We know this is most likely a viral gastroenteritis. Prandin 2mg pills $190.00 We know he’s in no danger. Prandin 2mg pills $190.00 We know his symptoms can easily be allieviated with medication.

But he doesn’t. Prandin 2mg pills $190.00 He doesn’t even know the term “gastroenteritis”. Prandin 2mg pills $190.00 He just knows that it feels like something is horribly wrong. Prandin 2mg pills $190.00 He doesn’t need a nurse who rolls their eyes and silently calls him a “wimp”.

He needs empathy.


She’s in her mid-forties. Prandin 2mg pills $190.00 She arrives in the middle of the night in sunglasses, prandin 2mg pills $190.00 holding her plastic garbage can in front of her face. Prandin 2mg pills $190.00 Migraine. Prandin 2mg pills $190.00 Three days. Prandin 2mg pills $190.00 Vomiting. Prandin 2mg pills $190.00 24 hours. Prandin 2mg pills $190.00 Photosensitive. Prandin 2mg pills $190.00 Extreme.

She’s tired. Prandin 2mg pills $190.00 Tired of being in pain. Prandin 2mg pills $190.00 Tired of not being able to get on with life. Prandin 2mg pills $190.00 She tried every one of her medications, prandin 2mg pills $190.00 more than once. Prandin 2mg pills $190.00 Keeping them down is another story.

We know this is probably a typical migraine. Prandin 2mg pills $190.00 We know that many people come in to the ER with the same complaint and are discharged after receiving some pretty heavy-duty drugs. Prandin 2mg pills $190.00 We often see them many times in one month. Prandin 2mg pills $190.00 We know the drill.

And so does she. Prandin 2mg pills $190.00 She knows there will be some suspicion. Prandin 2mg pills $190.00 She can hear it in the tone, prandin 2mg pills $190.00 she can see it in the face of the nurse who takes down her triage information. Prandin 2mg pills $190.00 What she doesn’t need is someone who doesn’t believe her pain is a 10/10 and rolls their eyes because she is allergic to Toradol and Phenergan.

She needs empathy.


Empathy is at the heart of our profession.

As in synonymous with “caring”. Prandin 2mg pills $190.00 It’s what we do. Prandin 2mg pills $190.00 It’s what we have to offer as nurses. Prandin 2mg pills $190.00 We give of ourselves so that others can feel better. Prandin 2mg pills $190.00 In the ER specifically, prandin 2mg pills $190.00 we work quickly to get them as comfortable as possible.

But we absolutely must have empathy. Prandin 2mg pills $190.00 The opposite? Apathy.

And apathy is just another word for nothing left to feel.

God help us if we get to that point in our practice.

God help our patients when we get to that point in our practice.

They expect medical care from their doctors.

They need empathy and caring from their nurse.

It’s what we do.
