Glucovance 400.5mg Pills $216.00

Glucovance 400.5mg pills $216.00

Glucovance 400.5mg pills $216.00 Behold the faceless nurse!

Glucovance 400.5mg pills $216.00 I bet she doesn’t have to decide whether to wear make-up to work!

Glucovance 400.5mg pills $216.00 Apparently there were many options for nurses in the 1940s – you could (a) watch a doctor, glucovance 400.5mg pills $216.00 (b) invade the personal space of a patient who looks like he’s painting, glucovance 400.5mg pills $216.00 (c) bandage a boo boo, glucovance 400.5mg pills $216.00 (d) feed a kid or (e) wash a patient’s hand.

Glucovance 400.5mg pills $216.00 Wait a minute.

Glucovance 400.5mg pills $216.00 That’s what Cherry Ames did and I became a nurse because of her!

Glucovance 400.5mg pills $216.00 I guess if she had put tubes down noses and up other orifices, glucovance 400.5mg pills $216.00 described the smell of a GI bleed or told exactly what happens to a patient in DIC, glucovance 400.5mg pills $216.00 I might not be where I am today.

Glucovance 400.5mg pills $216.00 Some things you don’t need to know until you need to know.

Glucovance 400.5mg pills $216.00 Kotex did a lot of advertising for nurses during World War 2. Glucovance 400.5mg pills $216.00 I wonder why we don’t see them working with nursing recruitment today?

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

Glucovance 400.5mg pills $216.00 I’m on my second day off after a six-night stretch, glucovance 400.5mg pills $216.00 including a 12-hour shift in the middle.

Glucovance 400.5mg pills $216.00 I’m really getting too old for this type of stuff.

Glucovance 400.5mg pills $216.00 Of course, glucovance 400.5mg pills $216.00 it did not help that I was up for a full 24-hours watching my man Kasey Kahne win the Pocono 500 right in the middle of the stretch.

Glucovance 400.5mg pills $216.00 I managed to stay up until the race was over at 3:30, glucovance 400.5mg pills $216.00 but then I was so amped up I couldn’t fall asleep!

Glucovance 400.5mg pills $216.00 So much for Budweiser making you drowsy.

Glucovance 400.5mg pills $216.00 Not that I drank a lot of it.

Glucovance 400.5mg pills $216.00 Or anything.

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

The patient was anonymous.

No dates, glucovance 400.5mg pills $216.00 no names, glucovance 400.5mg pills $216.00 no shift, glucovance 400.5mg pills $216.00 no diagnosis.

Just a routine satisfaction survey that was routed to the emergency department.

And the patient was not happy.

*****

The doctor took forever to see me!

Well, glucovance 400.5mg pills $216.00 it may have been a while before the doctor was able to see you. Glucovance 400.5mg pills $216.00 There are patients who came in before you. Glucovance 400.5mg pills $216.00 A very critical patient may have come in after you. Glucovance 400.5mg pills $216.00 In the meantime, glucovance 400.5mg pills $216.00 your nurse was probably (a) placing an IV, glucovance 400.5mg pills $216.00 (b) drawing your blood and ordering the initial tests, glucovance 400.5mg pills $216.00 (c) starting your fluids, glucovance 400.5mg pills $216.00 (d) giving you medicine per protocol and/or (e) ordering x-rays.

Didn’t you see the nurse?

The doctor was mean!

Gee, glucovance 400.5mg pills $216.00 that’s too bad. Glucovance 400.5mg pills $216.00 Let’s see, glucovance 400.5mg pills $216.00 while you were in the emergency department, glucovance 400.5mg pills $216.00 you may have seen the doctor for, glucovance 400.5mg pills $216.00 oh, glucovance 400.5mg pills $216.00 twenty minutes total. Glucovance 400.5mg pills $216.00 They examined you, glucovance 400.5mg pills $216.00 confirmed the tests that were ordered, glucovance 400.5mg pills $216.00 added new ones, glucovance 400.5mg pills $216.00 perhaps ordered more pain medicine. Glucovance 400.5mg pills $216.00 Then when all the tests were back, glucovance 400.5mg pills $216.00 they summed up the findings, glucovance 400.5mg pills $216.00 gave you his opinion and discussed options. Glucovance 400.5mg pills $216.00 In the meantime, glucovance 400.5mg pills $216.00 every need you had was taken care of by a registered nurse, glucovance 400.5mg pills $216.00 who had the time and the knowledge needed to keep you comfortable.

Didn’t you see the nurse?

The doctor ignored my requests for pain medicine!

Oooh, glucovance 400.5mg pills $216.00 sorry again, glucovance 400.5mg pills $216.00 but I don’t think so. Glucovance 400.5mg pills $216.00 You see, glucovance 400.5mg pills $216.00 the primary focus of patient care in general is the relief of pain. Glucovance 400.5mg pills $216.00 Seriously. Glucovance 400.5mg pills $216.00 We document it, glucovance 400.5mg pills $216.00 medicate for it and document the response. Glucovance 400.5mg pills $216.00 You need more, glucovance 400.5mg pills $216.00 you get more. Glucovance 400.5mg pills $216.00 Unless, glucovance 400.5mg pills $216.00 of course, glucovance 400.5mg pills $216.00 you are a suspected drug seeker and nine times out of ten you’ll get it anyway. Glucovance 400.5mg pills $216.00 Chances are the person you asked for pain medicine was a registered nurse. Glucovance 400.5mg pills $216.00 Chances are the reason you didn’t receive what you wanted when you wanted it was explained by a registered nurse.

Didn’t you see the nurse?

*****

With all due respect, glucovance 400.5mg pills $216.00 what century are you living in?

Did you really think that when you came into the emergency department you would have the undivided attention of a physician?

If you were dying, glucovance 400.5mg pills $216.00 perhaps.

But you weren’t, glucovance 400.5mg pills $216.00 as your evaluation makes clear.

Maybe if you had spent less time worrying about the doctor and more time actually looking at the people who were caring for you minute-by-minute, glucovance 400.5mg pills $216.00 you would have realized that you were receiving attentive, glucovance 400.5mg pills $216.00 appropriate care by professional nurses.

Didn’t you even see us?

    Kim, I love the way you write!! I always notice that the “nurse” is the one that seems to do most of the work. I wait in the lobby for a visit with my ob/gyn for about 30 minutes. I spend time with the nurse for about 10 minutes. Then the ob for 5 minutes. Then I see the nurse again for another 15 minutes or so! I might as well have just emailed my doctor with a question and made an appointment with my nurse!

    I totally agree with you regarding “not seeing the nurse”. The floor nurses are the ones that are doing everything for 12 hours and the patients complain that “I didn’t see anybody the WHOLE day!”
    Okay…..

    […] A very simple tenet you should have learned in nursing school. I too would want to forget the nurse that carried on in front of me that way. And you wonder why the medical profession gets such poor […]
