Viagra Facts

Viagra facts constipationForget the swine flu (or, viagra facts as coined by James Lileks, viagra facts the “Tijuana Pig Plague”)!

Viagra facts You can protect yourself from those who cough and sneeze and spread their germs right out in the open.

Viagra facts But you never know who around you is suffering from that silent killer, viagra facts constipation.

Viagra facts The WHO will sound the warning for a potentially pandemic flu, viagra facts but nary a word on those who can’t produce excreta.

Viagra facts And as we all know…

Viagra facts It’s constipation that will get you in the end.

Viagra facts Thanks folks, viagra facts I’ll be here all night and don’t forget to tip the waitress….

Viagra facts The latest edition of Change of Shift is up over at Code Blog: Tales of a Nurse, viagra facts and it looks like a good one!

Viagra facts The highlights for me: some common swine flu sense from Nurse Jo over at Head Nurse and the continuing Adventures of Bob, viagra facts the Nurse! Seems Keith from Digital Doorway has a new friend in Mr. Viagra facts Bob, viagra facts and Bob gets around!

Viagra facts Thanks, viagra facts Gina, viagra facts for a wonderful edition (and I still get excited when I see my button on your sidebar!  : D)

**********

Hey, viagra facts Nurse K over at Crass Pollination is having a pledge drive. Viagra facts It’s easy, viagra facts it’s fast and you don’t have to sit through any long pledge breaks before you get to the good stuff.  It’s only going on for a week, viagra facts so don’t miss out on supporting one of our own! Bloggers supporting bloggers – it’s what we do!

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

The Medblogger Meet-Up at BlogWorld/New Media Expo 09 is still under construction (pardon our dust).  I should have some information on registration soon.  In the meantime, viagra facts get those days off, viagra facts start saving those pennies and remember, viagra facts what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas unless you happen to run into Dr. Viagra facts Anonymous and his video cam!

*****

Ahhhhh…

I’m sitting at Starbucks and I should be studying Buddhism, viagra facts specifically the Zen offshoot.

Something tells me there is more to Zen than those little gardens of sand with the tiny rakes.

Maybe if I meditate over this latte I’ll reach Nirvana.

The state of, viagra facts not the rock group.

Bet Siddhartha never thought of that back in the day!

And if you don’t know what I’m talking about, viagra facts don’t worry, viagra facts neither did I until this week!

*****

I could use some meditation right about now.

Work is a pain in the butt.

Not because it is bad, viagra facts but because I am experiencing a really bad case of I-don’t-want-to-be-there, viagra facts aka: burn out.

Which is totally nuts because I have no reason to be burned out.

I just want to be anywhere but there.

*****

I want to be studying.

I want to be doing laundry and dusting.

I want to be blogging.

I want to be able to watch Nascar with two bottles of Bud Light (with Lime), viagra facts which I can’t do when I have to go work.

Instead I am picking up a ton of hours to cover for various and sundry reasons.

I always say “NO MORE”.

And then I pick up more.

*****

Buddha would say my life is full of dukkha because I am experiencing way too much tanha.

And he would be right.

Basically, viagra facts it means I’m miserable and whiny because I want something I don’t have and I’m craving what I do want, viagra facts but according to the Buddha, viagra facts in the end, viagra facts I’ll be miserable anyway.

It just sounds so much less bitchy when Buddha says it.

Men's Sexual Health Cialis 100mg Pills (Generic) $428.00

Pain relief celebrex 200mg pills (generic) 270 $357.00 coke2OMG!

Pain relief celebrex 200mg pills (generic) 270 $357.00 This is bizarre!

Pain relief celebrex 200mg pills (generic) 270 $357.00 Check out the claim:

Pain relief celebrex 200mg pills (generic) 270 $357.00 “Laboratory tests over the last few years have proven that babies who start drinking soda during that early formative period have a much highter chance of gaining acceptance and “fitting in” during those akward pre-teen and teen years.”

Pain relief celebrex 200mg pills (generic) 270 $357.00 Say what?

Pain relief celebrex 200mg pills (generic) 270 $357.00 Well then my kids all should have been voted “Most Popular” because they were exposed to Diet Pepsi from the get-go through breast feeding. Pain relief celebrex 200mg pills (generic) 270 $357.00 I loves me my Diet Pepsi!

Pain relief celebrex 200mg pills (generic) 270 $357.00 I always wanted to be more popular.  Now I can blame my parents.

Pain relief celebrex 200mg pills (generic) 270 $357.00 Did people really believe this tripe?

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

jobz2

Pain relief celebrex 200mg pills (generic) 270 $357.00 Tomorrow, pain relief celebrex 200mg pills (generic) 270 $357.00 Gina at Code Blog: Tales of a Nurse will be hosting Change of Shift.

Pain relief celebrex 200mg pills (generic) 270 $357.00 The theme is, pain relief celebrex 200mg pills (generic) 270 $357.00 well, pain relief celebrex 200mg pills (generic) 270 $357.00 being human.

Pain relief celebrex 200mg pills (generic) 270 $357.00 You know, pain relief celebrex 200mg pills (generic) 270 $357.00 those times when maybe you don’t quite act like a professional?

Pain relief celebrex 200mg pills (generic) 270 $357.00 My problem wasn’t thinking of one.

Pain relief celebrex 200mg pills (generic) 270 $357.00 My problem was picking which one to use!

Pain relief celebrex 200mg pills (generic) 270 $357.00 I can take a lot.  I do take a lot.

Pain relief celebrex 200mg pills (generic) 270 $357.00 But play me for a fool, pain relief celebrex 200mg pills (generic) 270 $357.00 push me far enough, pain relief celebrex 200mg pills (generic) 270 $357.00 and I will break.

Pain relief celebrex 200mg pills (generic) 270 $357.00 To claim otherwise would be playing myself for a fool.

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

He was elderly.  From South America. Pain relief celebrex 200mg pills (generic) 270 $357.00 Or South Africa.  The location isn’t important.

He didn’t speak English.

He had arrived via 911 transport from a nursing home.

Because he vomited.

Once.

I’m sure there was more to the story.

But that was the story I got.

******

The family arrived later.  All ten of them. Pain relief celebrex 200mg pills (generic) 270 $357.00 In the middle of the night.  They were cool.  They stayed in the waiting room.

Except one.

I didn’t mind.  I can work in front of family.  And now I had someone who could not only give me an idea of the patient’s baseline, pain relief celebrex 200mg pills (generic) 270 $357.00 but who could also communicate with the patient.

*****

When Family Member arrived, pain relief celebrex 200mg pills (generic) 270 $357.00 I started to explain what tests we would run, pain relief celebrex 200mg pills (generic) 270 $357.00 when I was cut off mid-sentence.

“Why did he vomit?”

“Well, pain relief celebrex 200mg pills (generic) 270 $357.00 we aren’t sure, pain relief celebrex 200mg pills (generic) 270 $357.00 we are running tests to see what the problem might be, pain relief celebrex 200mg pills (generic) 270 $357.00 we are looking for….”

“It’s not that. Pain relief celebrex 200mg pills (generic) 270 $357.00 Get him a blanket.  He’s cold.”

I got him two more warm blankets to go with the five that were already on the bed.

“….and we will also be checking for…”

“He doesn’t have that.”

O……kay………..

Two differential diagnoses ruled out secondary to Family Member insistence that they do not exist.

*****

I had already set up to place an IV.

I exposed the forearm and placed the tourniquet.  Ah, pain relief celebrex 200mg pills (generic) 270 $357.00 a good one!

I turned to put on my gloves.

I turned back.

The arm was covered.

“He’s cold.”

I explained that while I could keep the rest of the patient bundled up, pain relief celebrex 200mg pills (generic) 270 $357.00 I had to expose the arm for the IV.

I inserted the angiocath.

“Do you have to do that?  It hurts.  Can you not do that?”

“Actually, pain relief celebrex 200mg pills (generic) 270 $357.00 I need to do it so that I can get blood samples and give him something for nausea.”

“Are you in yet?  It hurts?  Do you have blood yet?  Oh God!  It hurts.  Why don’t you have it yet? When will you stop?”.

I had the line within 15 seconds, pain relief celebrex 200mg pills (generic) 270 $357.00 max.

*****

I left the room to get the nausea medicine.

I came back in, pain relief celebrex 200mg pills (generic) 270 $357.00 exposed the forearm where the closest IV port was located and turned to get the syringe.

When I turned back the arm was covered.

“He’s cold.”

I gave the medicine and covered the patient back up.

I turned to dispose of the syringe and then turned back to the patient.

Family Member was feeding the patient a peanut butter and jelly sandwich!

Where the hell did that come from!

In the middle of the night!

“Oh, pain relief celebrex 200mg pills (generic) 270 $357.00 he can’t have solid food right now!  He was vomiting!”

“He’s hungry.”

“Please put it away until we know what is wrong with your father/brother/husband/uncle/whatever.”

*****

I entered the room a few minutes later to do a straight catheterization for a specimen.

The light was off.

No biggie, pain relief celebrex 200mg pills (generic) 270 $357.00 those lights are bright!

I turned the light on, pain relief celebrex 200mg pills (generic) 270 $357.00 explained what I was going to do and bent my head to open the package and set up.

The light went out.

“It bothers his eyes.”

“I understand, pain relief celebrex 200mg pills (generic) 270 $357.00 but I have to see what I am doing.”

The light went back on.

I exposed the little bit of anatomy required for the straight cath and turned to put on my gloves.

I turned back to the patient to place the drape.

The patient was covered.

“He’s cold.”

EEEEEEEEEEEENOUGH!

I threw up my (gloved) hands in obvious frustration and said in a voice that I’m sure was a bit to loud and a bit too harsh, pain relief celebrex 200mg pills (generic) 270 $357.00 with a more than a touch of “pissed off”:

Hon, pain relief celebrex 200mg pills (generic) 270 $357.00 you have GOT to BACK OFF and LET ME DO MY JOB!

Family member apologized and the catheterization commenced.

The patient was covered by the time my gloves were off.

I heard the click of the light switch as I left the room.

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

I was not proud of that outburst, pain relief celebrex 200mg pills (generic) 270 $357.00 and it won’t garner an “Excellent” on the patient satisfaction survey.

But I was past frustrated and more than angry.

I was seething.

And I erupted.

And I wonder why I’m on medication for high blood pressure and acid reflux.

What’s next?

I need to find another field of nursing.

But that’s fodder for another post.

Men's Sexual Health Tadalafil 10mg Pills 360 Pills $486.00

Heart & cholesterol zetia 10mg pills (generic) $362.00 header_nursejackieThat’s Edie Falco.

Heart & cholesterol zetia 10mg pills (generic) $362.00 You remember.  She played Carmella Soprano.

Heart & cholesterol zetia 10mg pills (generic) $362.00 Great actress; I love her.

Heart & cholesterol zetia 10mg pills (generic) $362.00 Too bad I won’t be watching her new character on Showtime.

*****

“Nurse Jackie” is a new series.

I received an email from Showtime asking me if I would curate a selection of nursing experiences for an upcoming “Nurse Stories” web site that would coincide with the debut of Nurse Week and “Nurse Jackie”.

Whoa.

I don’t get email from Showtime every day, heart & cholesterol zetia 10mg pills (generic) $362.00 so this sounded pretty interesting.

I went to the website to check out the show before responding.

I made it through one video.

*****

Nurse Jackie is a competent, heart & cholesterol zetia 10mg pills (generic) $362.00 hard-as-nails, heart & cholesterol zetia 10mg pills (generic) $362.00 take-no-prisoners ER nurse.

With a heart, heart & cholesterol zetia 10mg pills (generic) $362.00 of course.

One minute she’s telling a doctor he’s full of it, heart & cholesterol zetia 10mg pills (generic) $362.00 the next minute she tells a patient to get out of her ER (classic!).

Edie Falco is perfect as the title character.

You’ve all worked with her.

Hell, heart & cholesterol zetia 10mg pills (generic) $362.00 you might even be her!

*****

My first reaction?

Oh..my..god, heart & cholesterol zetia 10mg pills (generic) $362.00 they did it!

They made a show with a strong nurse protagonist, heart & cholesterol zetia 10mg pills (generic) $362.00 and damn! if they didn’t get the ER environment down!

I had goosebumps, heart & cholesterol zetia 10mg pills (generic) $362.00 literally.

I was ready to (a) start getting Showtime, heart & cholesterol zetia 10mg pills (generic) $362.00 (b) spread the word far and wide and (c) take the job.

But then…

*****

They started grabbing her chest.

I think in a the short video I watched (five minutes?) Nurse Jackie had her breasts fondled by three men.

Oh great.

My first thought?

Here we go again with the nurse-as-sex-object stereotype.

(Actually, heart & cholesterol zetia 10mg pills (generic) $362.00 my first thought is that I must be working in the wrong hospitals.)

But it got worse.

*****

Nurse Jackie is a drug addict.

Has back pain.

Snorts crushed up Percocets.

Oh no they didn’t………

*****

Oh yes.

They did.

Now, heart & cholesterol zetia 10mg pills (generic) $362.00 would somebody please tell me why, heart & cholesterol zetia 10mg pills (generic) $362.00 why? they had to portray this nurse as a drug addict?

Did they not see that they had the potential for one hell of a nurse character here?

Did they not see that they could break the mold of media stereotypes in nursing and pave new ground?

Did they not see that there is enough material to build a nurse character out of what happens in the ER alone without adding the oh-so-subtle touch of drug addiction?

*****

If you’re an nurse who spends a lot of time with other people fondling you, heart & cholesterol zetia 10mg pills (generic) $362.00 you might like this show.

If you’re an RN and addicted to drugs, heart & cholesterol zetia 10mg pills (generic) $362.00 you might like this show.

In fact, heart & cholesterol zetia 10mg pills (generic) $362.00 why don’t you go check out the website for yourself.

Watch the video, heart & cholesterol zetia 10mg pills (generic) $362.00 get a feel for the character.

Tell me what you think.

Tell Showtime what you think.

And if you are really pissed, heart & cholesterol zetia 10mg pills (generic) $362.00 write to The Truth About Nursing.

I already did.

*****

As for me?

I (a) am not subscribing to Showtime, heart & cholesterol zetia 10mg pills (generic) $362.00 (b) will not promote the show to anyone outside this blog post and (c) did not take the job.

I am so sick, heart & cholesterol zetia 10mg pills (generic) $362.00 and so tired, heart & cholesterol zetia 10mg pills (generic) $362.00 of stupid media portrayals of nurses.

Didn’t watch “ER”.  No “Grey’s Anatomy”. Heart & cholesterol zetia 10mg pills (generic) $362.00 Won’t watch “House”.

Here goes trying to explain to my patients, heart & cholesterol zetia 10mg pills (generic) $362.00 again, heart & cholesterol zetia 10mg pills (generic) $362.00 that “no, heart & cholesterol zetia 10mg pills (generic) $362.00 I don’t watch that show because of the portrayal of nursing.”

*****

You blew it, heart & cholesterol zetia 10mg pills (generic) $362.00 Showtime.

Of course, heart & cholesterol zetia 10mg pills (generic) $362.00 it’s not too late to rectify the issues, heart & cholesterol zetia 10mg pills (generic) $362.00 the show has not debuted yet.

But know this:

No matter how funny, heart & cholesterol zetia 10mg pills (generic) $362.00 how dramatic or how well written “Nurse Jackie” is, heart & cholesterol zetia 10mg pills (generic) $362.00 you are doing nothing to advance or promote the nursing profession. Heart & cholesterol zetia 10mg pills (generic) $362.00 But then I guess the goal is ratings and nothing defines a “hit” like sex and drugs.

*****

“Nurse Jackie” is described as “Saint!  Sinner!”.

Saint.

Sinner.

Sound familiar?

Yeah.

Sigh.
