Flovent 125mcg inhalation canister $126.00 squishycapWell, flovent 125mcg inhalation canister $126.00 somebody likes their job, flovent 125mcg inhalation canister $126.00 I must say.

Flovent 125mcg inhalation canister $126.00 Although I can’t figure out why she is smiling.

Flovent 125mcg inhalation canister $126.00 Her cap looks like conjoined coffee filters!

Flovent 125mcg inhalation canister $126.00 Conjoined coffee filters that somebody sat on!

Flovent 125mcg inhalation canister $126.00 Maybe she doesn’t realize it’s squished, flovent 125mcg inhalation canister $126.00 and would die of embarrassment if she knew!

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

Flovent 125mcg inhalation canister $126.00 I wanted to take a moment and thank the two companies whose support of Emergiblog through their advertising is appreciated more than I can say.

Sitting on my table: Saving Lives: Why the Media’s Portrayal of Nurses Puts Us All at Risk, flovent 125mcg inhalation canister $126.00 by Sandy Summers (of The Truth About Nursing) and Harry Jacobs Summers. Flovent 125mcg inhalation canister $126.00 I saw this book at Sandy’s site and could not resist.

Flovent 125mcg inhalation canister $126.00 You can pick up a copy of Saving Lives… by clicking on the link.

The emergency department “regular”.

Every emergency department has them.

A patient can become a “regular” for many reasons. Flovent 125mcg inhalation canister $126.00 Maybe they are a recurrent cardiac patient. Flovent 125mcg inhalation canister $126.00 Perhaps they suffer from chronic pain. Flovent 125mcg inhalation canister $126.00 Sometimes, flovent 125mcg inhalation canister $126.00 they become a “regular” because they utilize the ER as a clinic and bring the whole family in over the course of a month. Flovent 125mcg inhalation canister $126.00 Some regulars are drug seekers. Flovent 125mcg inhalation canister $126.00 Others are homeless and know they can find respite in the department for at least a couple of hours and maybe get something to eat.

If you work in an emergency department long enough, flovent 125mcg inhalation canister $126.00 you will know who they are.

And you will get to know them.

*****

Recently, flovent 125mcg inhalation canister $126.00 it dawned on me just how well you get to know them.

I work in a community hospital. Flovent 125mcg inhalation canister $126.00 It’s one of those hospitals that patients actually request to go to from all over the county. Flovent 125mcg inhalation canister $126.00 We have our shifts from hell, flovent 125mcg inhalation canister $126.00 but it is far from the county-trauma-eight-hour-wait-time environment of the huge medical centers. Flovent 125mcg inhalation canister $126.00 There is time to talk to the patients, flovent 125mcg inhalation canister $126.00 find out more about them than what hurts, flovent 125mcg inhalation canister $126.00 what is swollen or what prescription they have lost.

Over time, flovent 125mcg inhalation canister $126.00 the conversation stops being scripted and “starts getting real”, flovent 125mcg inhalation canister $126.00 as they say.

*****

This particular shift was steady, flovent 125mcg inhalation canister $126.00 but not crazy. Flovent 125mcg inhalation canister $126.00 And almost all the patients I cared for were “regulars”. Flovent 125mcg inhalation canister $126.00 Easily 90%. Flovent 125mcg inhalation canister $126.00 For some, flovent 125mcg inhalation canister $126.00 it was their usual health issue. Flovent 125mcg inhalation canister $126.00 For others, flovent 125mcg inhalation canister $126.00 something different.

I found out a lot that night over the course of that shift

Someone’s youngest would be starting kindergarten in September; someone’s oldest had just graduated from high school. Flovent 125mcg inhalation canister $126.00 Someone had gotten into a recovery program and had been clean for a month. Flovent 125mcg inhalation canister $126.00 Someone had just welcomed their first grandchild, flovent 125mcg inhalation canister $126.00 another was mourning the loss of their mom the week before. Flovent 125mcg inhalation canister $126.00 Someone had lost their job earlier in the week. Flovent 125mcg inhalation canister $126.00 Someone had gotten married since their last visit. Flovent 125mcg inhalation canister $126.00 A baby sister was on the way for one of my patients. Flovent 125mcg inhalation canister $126.00 Another patient had enrolled in the local junior college.

We saw them, flovent 125mcg inhalation canister $126.00 treated them and sent them on their way with a wave and a prescription.

Hopefully they left in better shape then they arrived, flovent 125mcg inhalation canister $126.00 even if all they needed was reassurance.

All I know is that I thoroughly enjoyed that shift.

*****

I had done all the usual things.  Saline locks, flovent 125mcg inhalation canister $126.00 blood draws. Flovent 125mcg inhalation canister $126.00 Medications and re-evaluations. Flovent 125mcg inhalation canister $126.00 IVs and education.

But I had also congratulated success, flovent 125mcg inhalation canister $126.00 commiserated over frustrations and offered consolation over losses. Flovent 125mcg inhalation canister $126.00 We covered birth and death, flovent 125mcg inhalation canister $126.00 struggles and successes, flovent 125mcg inhalation canister $126.00 dropping old lifestyles and starting new beginnings.

That shift, flovent 125mcg inhalation canister $126.00 I saw my patients in a different light.

*****

The best part of nursing has nothing to do with disease or diagnoses or procedures or prescriptions.

The best part of nursing is the patients themselves.

I thoroughly enjoyed catching up with my “regulars”.

I hope I was therapeutic for them.

They were most certainly therapeutic for me.

Hytrin 5mg Capsules $178.00

Imigran 100mg pills $430.00 aykroydcurtainYou’ll have to pardon the title of this post.

Imigran 100mg pills $430.00 Those of you of a certain age will surely remember that famous line used in the second season of the “Saturday Night Live Weekend Update” skit.

Imigran 100mg pills $430.00 For you youngsters who have never seen it, imigran 100mg pills $430.00 Dan Akroyd and Jane Curtin were the co-anchors. Imigran 100mg pills $430.00 They would engage in a point-counterpoint debate, imigran 100mg pills $430.00 and Dan would always start off his counterpoint with the endearment, imigran 100mg pills $430.00 “Jane, imigran 100mg pills $430.00 you ignorant slut….”

Pretty funny at the time.

Not so funny when you use it in the blogosphere.

*****

No one has ever said that to me in a comment, imigran 100mg pills $430.00 probably because my name isn’t Jane.

But, imigran 100mg pills $430.00 a few have come close.

And I wondered. Imigran 100mg pills $430.00 I’ve been doing this for four years.

When did the blogosphere get so nasty?

Nothing wrong with controversy and strong debate. Imigran 100mg pills $430.00 It’s what the internet is all about; it’s why bloggers blog and it’s what makes for a vibrant discussion and for those with an open mind, imigran 100mg pills $430.00 it can be exhilarating.

But something is missing lately.

Manners.

*****

Given the barriers to full communication inherent in internet interactions (lack of facial expressions, imigran 100mg pills $430.00 tone of voice, imigran 100mg pills $430.00 body language), imigran 100mg pills $430.00 it is easy to appear curt or insulting without meaning to. Imigran 100mg pills $430.00 In large discussions with many commenters, imigran 100mg pills $430.00 a response can be confusing: was it meant for the blogger or was it a response to a previous comment?

Comments are the heart and soul of the blogosphere so it is important to make your comment count.

Here are five ways to do that:

1.  Keep your focus on the topic up for discussion. Imigran 100mg pills $430.00 Remember, imigran 100mg pills $430.00 it is your opinion on the topic at hand that adds value to the discussion.

2.  If you are referring to a previous comment (as opposed to the blog post itself), imigran 100mg pills $430.00 be sure to make that clear.

3.  Do not insult the blogger or previous commenters by resorting to name calling. Imigran 100mg pills $430.00 Let me assure you that likening the blogger to a female dog or questioning the legitimacy of their birth is sure to dilute your point. Imigran 100mg pills $430.00 Trust me on that one, imigran 100mg pills $430.00 m’kay?

4.  Sarcasm is an art form. Imigran 100mg pills $430.00 Use it sparingly; it rarely comes across on screen unless you are an extremely talented writer.

5.  Identify yourself. Imigran 100mg pills $430.00 Even a pseudonym is okay – lots of folks use them.  Anonymous comments don’t carry the same weight as those whose authors are not afraid to put their name/pseudonym behind their words. Imigran 100mg pills $430.00 Which brings me to the next point:

6.  Use a legitimate email address. Imigran 100mg pills $430.00 If what you have to say is articulate and adds to the discussion, imigran 100mg pills $430.00 why go to the trouble of using a phony email address to make a comment?

*****

As you may have guessed, imigran 100mg pills $430.00 I’ve been receiving some rather interesting comments from some rather interesting sources.

In four years, imigran 100mg pills $430.00 I have never had to moderate comments. Imigran 100mg pills $430.00 I take all comers – agree, imigran 100mg pills $430.00 disagree, imigran 100mg pills $430.00 vehemently disagree…you name it, imigran 100mg pills $430.00 it’s here.

I don’t plan to start moderating them now.

But I will say this: if I get comments from folks with emails like “yousuck@yousuck.com” (I’m not kidding on that one). Imigran 100mg pills $430.00 Or “lightenup@lightenup.com” (yep, imigran 100mg pills $430.00 that was a real one), imigran 100mg pills $430.00 they will be deleted immediately.  Even if they are articulate and responsive to the topic.

If you aren’t willing to use a legitimate email and your name/pseudonym, imigran 100mg pills $430.00 why bother to comment? Anyone can hide behind a fake email or the popular name “anonymous”.

You may have great things to add to the discussion but your opinion loses its value when you don’t take credit for it. Imigran 100mg pills $430.00 Back up your opinion with your name/psuedonym.

I stand behind everything I write with my name.

Is it wrong to expect anything less from anyone else?
