Levaquin 750mg Pills $85.00

Levaquin 750mg pills $85.00 (Well, levaquin 750mg pills $85.00 I thought I was homeward bound. Levaquin 750mg pills $85.00 Turns out they overbooked my flight from Phoenix to Oakland, levaquin 750mg pills $85.00 and needed volunteers to take a later flight. Levaquin 750mg pills $85.00 What’s in it for me? A bigger jet, levaquin 750mg pills $85.00 dinner and a free round-trip ticket to anywhere US Airways flies in the US. Levaquin 750mg pills $85.00 Hello?

Levaquin 750mg pills $85.00 Heck yeah, levaquin 750mg pills $85.00 I’ll volunteer! I’m exhausted but I’m thinking, levaquin 750mg pills $85.00 “NASCAR, levaquin 750mg pills $85.00 here I come!”. Levaquin 750mg pills $85.00 My husband has it tagged for something else. Levaquin 750mg pills $85.00 Not a chance, levaquin 750mg pills $85.00 Bub – Coca Cola 600, levaquin 750mg pills $85.00 2009, levaquin 750mg pills $85.00 I’m so there! So I’m blogging in a combo Wolfgang Puck/Pretzel Mania/TCBY/Pizza Hut cubicle. Levaquin 750mg pills $85.00 It’s the only place with a plug!)

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

Levaquin 750mg pills $85.00

Levaquin 750mg pills $85.00 Here I am with Mary Tyler Moore on the Nicollet Mall in Minneapolis.

Levaquin 750mg pills $85.00 Or at least her statue.

Levaquin 750mg pills $85.00 I didn’t have a hat to toss, levaquin 750mg pills $85.00 darn it!

Levaquin 750mg pills $85.00 The mall is beautiful, levaquin 750mg pills $85.00 with sidewalk cafes, levaquin 750mg pills $85.00 plants and flowers – and every store you can imagine.

Levaquin 750mg pills $85.00 This photo is somewhat misleading.

Levaquin 750mg pills $85.00 The statue really doesn’t look like Mary.

Levaquin 750mg pills $85.00 And I’m not seven months pregnant.

Levaquin 750mg pills $85.00 In fact, levaquin 750mg pills $85.00 I’m much thinner than this.

Levaquin 750mg pills $85.00 Trust me.

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

Levaquin 750mg pills $85.00 When I decided to attend the ENA conference, levaquin 750mg pills $85.00 I expected to be inspired and informed

Levaquin 750mg pills $85.00 I didn’t expect Major William White.

Levaquin 750mg pills $85.00 He wasn’t on the agenda.

Levaquin 750mg pills $85.00 He was asked to reprise a statement he had made during the General Assembly for the Opening Keynote.

Levaquin 750mg pills $85.00 Major White is the Director of Trauma Education for the Defense Medical Readiness Training Institute. Levaquin 750mg pills $85.00 He served in Iraq as the nurse manager of the emergency department in the International Zone.

Levaquin 750mg pills $85.00 They cared for everyone: men, levaquin 750mg pills $85.00 women, levaquin 750mg pills $85.00 children, levaquin 750mg pills $85.00 Iraqi, levaquin 750mg pills $85.00 American. Levaquin 750mg pills $85.00 Insurgents.

*****

Levaquin 750mg pills $85.00 Think your ER is busy? Imagine a two minute (maybe) heads up that you are getting fifteen major trauma patients from a bombing. Levaquin 750mg pills $85.00 Horrible injuries. Levaquin 750mg pills $85.00 Multiple amputations. Levaquin 750mg pills $85.00 As you gear up to care for those, levaquin 750mg pills $85.00 more are being pulled from collapsed buildings and being brought in for care and your ER itself is under fire.

Levaquin 750mg pills $85.00 In the middle of all this, levaquin 750mg pills $85.00 a reporter embedded with the unit puts a microphone up to you and asks how you handle all this? How are you able to deal with it?

Levaquin 750mg pills $85.00 Major White had an answer.

Levaquin 750mg pills $85.00 He said, levaquin 750mg pills $85.00 “We are ER nurses, levaquin 750mg pills $85.00 this is what we do. Levaquin 750mg pills $85.00 We manage chaos.”

Levaquin 750mg pills $85.00 That was perfect.

*****

We manage chaos.

Most of us have never had to manage it in an ER in the center of a war zone, levaquin 750mg pills $85.00 but that is exactly what we do as emergency department nurses. Levaquin 750mg pills $85.00 Every department. Levaquin 750mg pills $85.00 Every day. Levaquin 750mg pills $85.00 Every shift.

We manage chaos.

We manage it when the rooms are packed, levaquin 750mg pills $85.00 the hallway becomes an ICU, levaquin 750mg pills $85.00 the waiting area is full of people who should be roomed and two people call in sick for the next shift.

We manage it with a patient who is acting out because their ability to cope is gone.

We manage it when a family hears the news that their loved one is gone.

From the department level down to the individual patient, levaquin 750mg pills $85.00 we make order out of chaos.

****

Major White’s comments during the Keynote Address were brief, levaquin 750mg pills $85.00 vivid, levaquin 750mg pills $85.00 poignant and inspiring.

I started to lose it when he told us that the staff of the ER had made a pact. Levaquin 750mg pills $85.00 A staff member would always be with a patient if they were terminally injured; no one in that ER in the middle of Iraq would ever die without someone at the bedside. Levaquin 750mg pills $85.00 No one would die alone.

And it didn’t matter who you were.

*****

This post doesn’t even begin to convey how proud I felt to be an ER nurse that day.

I’ll never see one-millionth of what Major White has seen. Levaquin 750mg pills $85.00 I’ll never have that level of awesome responsibility.

But I’ll hold my head up a little higher when I realize I am in a profession that allows me to call someone like Major White a professional colleague.

He brought clarity to the role of the emergency nurse in one sentence.

*****

No matter what nursing specialty you work in, levaquin 750mg pills $85.00 stop to think about what you do.

Really stop and think about it.

Not just anyone can do what we do.

We’re nurses.

And we should be proud of our accomplishments.

Every department. Levaquin 750mg pills $85.00 Every day. Levaquin 750mg pills $85.00 Every shift.

    I love your post but think that “MANAGE CHAOS” is the wrong word. From the description you gave, the ED nurses are thriving in chaos. No one can manage chaos as that would be telling the chaos what to do. What ED nurses do is use the chaos to their advantage. They self-organize around problems, and innovation in problem solving thrives. This phenomena is called Complexity theory or Complex Adaptive Systems. We as ED nurses are thriving on the energy of chaos swirling around us. Take a step back and watch as the nurses swarm, like bees, from problem to problem solving it and quickly adapting and moving on. 2 sick calls, allows the bond to become stronger among the workers, creating energy that is used to save lives, deal with change, and overcome adversity. ED nurses don’t manage chaos, ED nurses do not survive without it. The power is unleashed in the worst of times.

    What an awesome post. I have goosebumps!
    I worked in emerg this past summer, fell in love only to go back in just a matter of months. I will be a critically care educated RN next year and I simply can’t wait. Your post put into words exactly what we feel as we run around on the ER floor. Brilliantly put.

    You are so right. I also have to agree with what Dan Weberg said about not managing chaos because we just hang on for the ride and try to make the best of a bad situation. ER nurses are Pros at that.

    You all are heroes!

    I felt nauseous after my ER shifts. I readily admit that I couldn’t handle the stress of not knowing what might come in.

    I’d hear the charts start coming in and I would groan. God bless you all for loving that job! Someone has to do it. 🙂

    HOORAH Kim.
    Thanks for that healthy dose of reality.
    I like to call it ‘controlled’ chaos. *wink*wink*

    Well put (now I have to find different words!). I’m NOT an ER nurse, but I felt proud to be surrounded by them (and next to you) at the conference listening to Major White. You guys rock!

    Kim,

    It was a joy having you at the conference and reading your posts. Keep up the great work, you are a wonderfully vibrant voice for ED nurses, a voice that needs to be heard as often as possible.
