Clarinex 5mg Pills $100.00

Clarinex 5mg pills $100.00 Looks like Mr. Clarinex 5mg pills $100.00 Administrator has some ‘splainin’ to do!

Clarinex 5mg pills $100.00 And I suggest he be straight with my colleagues, clarinex 5mg pills $100.00 because a nurse can sense BS before it is even spoken.

Clarinex 5mg pills $100.00 I am not in management, clarinex 5mg pills $100.00 and I never will be.

Clarinex 5mg pills $100.00 No, clarinex 5mg pills $100.00 I am one of the “rank and file.” And right now, clarinex 5mg pills $100.00 this member of the “rank and file” is hotter than hell.


What set me off?

A comment in a post on the Health Leaders Media website, clarinex 5mg pills $100.00 entitled Top 5 Challenges Facing Nursing in 2012. The article, clarinex 5mg pills $100.00 written for nursing management, clarinex 5mg pills $100.00 refers to nurses as “rank and file caregivers” and disparages their understanding of the importance of the “patient experience” to reimbursement:

If you haven’t found a way to drive home the importance of patient experience to direct-care nurses, clarinex 5mg pills $100.00 find it now. Clarinex 5mg pills $100.00 You know how much reimbursement is at stake, clarinex 5mg pills $100.00 but the rank and file caregivers still don’t get it.

The author goes on to state:

In fact, clarinex 5mg pills $100.00 the nurse-patient relationship has always been about patient experience…Your best nurses instinctively know this. Clarinex 5mg pills $100.00 They already create a good patient experience. Clarinex 5mg pills $100.00 They help patients understand their care, clarinex 5mg pills $100.00 involve families in decision-making, clarinex 5mg pills $100.00 coordinate multidisciplinary care, clarinex 5mg pills $100.00 sit with patients to explain complex diagnoses, clarinex 5mg pills $100.00 and even, clarinex 5mg pills $100.00 occasionally, clarinex 5mg pills $100.00 have time to offer a quick hug or hand to hold.

What? This is like punching someone in the face and then offering a compliment.

Clarinex 5mg pills $100.00 I have a revelation for you – we all know it. Clarinex 5mg pills $100.00 We understand what the requirements are for a “good” patient experience and it is what we have been doing as nurses since the dawn of time.

Clarinex 5mg pills $100.00 Since “the nurse-patient relationship has always been about patient experience, clarinex 5mg pills $100.00” why is this a “challenge” at all? This is nursing care, clarinex 5mg pills $100.00 and always has been!

Clarinex 5mg pills $100.00 Why are administrations freaking out now that patients will be evaluating their nursing care?

Clarinex 5mg pills $100.00 Suddenly, clarinex 5mg pills $100.00 all these new programs are flying into place. Clarinex 5mg pills $100.00 Educate! Communicate! Medicate! Smile!

Clarinex 5mg pills $100.00 What do you think we, clarinex 5mg pills $100.00 oh, clarinex 5mg pills $100.00 excuse me, clarinex 5mg pills $100.00 the “rank and file caregivers” have been doing all this time?


Clarinex 5mg pills $100.00 Let me tell you what the “rank and file caregivers” have to deal with in terms of the “patient experience”.

Clarinex 5mg pills $100.00 There is a hospital in my area that has switched their meal service into something that looks, clarinex 5mg pills $100.00 and tastes like the old airplane food from the 1970s. Clarinex 5mg pills $100.00 It comes in segmented cardboard trays and is microwaved.

Clarinex 5mg pills $100.00 As you can imagine, clarinex 5mg pills $100.00 these meals are not popular with the patients. Clarinex 5mg pills $100.00 They give the meals poor scores on the satisfaction surveys.

Clarinex 5mg pills $100.00 At a recent meeting, clarinex 5mg pills $100.00 the “rank and file caregivers” were lectured by the food service department that these low scores were the fault of the caregivers for not presenting the food in a pleasing manner, clarinex 5mg pills $100.00 laying it out nicely on the table, clarinex 5mg pills $100.00 and describing it with glowing adjectives.

Clarinex 5mg pills $100.00 That’s right, clarinex 5mg pills $100.00 the same “rank and file caregivers” who are managing complex medical problems on multiple patients, clarinex 5mg pills $100.00 coordinating multidisciplinary care, clarinex 5mg pills $100.00 educating patients and family on medication side effects and complex diagnoses and documenting until their fingers are numb were lectured for their lack of culinary presentation skills.

Clarinex 5mg pills $100.00 Who is running the freaking show, clarinex 5mg pills $100.00 Gordon Ramsay?

Clarinex 5mg pills $100.00 No wonder morale is in the toilet.


Well, clarinex 5mg pills $100.00 I’m off to take my blood pressure meds, clarinex 5mg pills $100.00 and maybe some Ativan.

All I can say is this “rank and file caregiver” is going to keep on doing what she has been doing for over 30 years. Clarinex 5mg pills $100.00 They can call it “patient experience” or HCAHPS, clarinex 5mg pills $100.00 or give it any project title they want.

I call it good nursing care, clarinex 5mg pills $100.00 and the patients will finally have a say in what that means.

Don’t worry, clarinex 5mg pills $100.00 admins, clarinex 5mg pills $100.00 if your bottom line depends on the nurses, clarinex 5mg pills $100.00 it’s gonna be alright.

Rank and file, clarinex 5mg pills $100.00 RN, clarinex 5mg pills $100.00 signing off.

Toradol Inj 10mg Pills $154.00

Naprosyn 500mg pills $154.00 I’m using my favorite ad council promo, naprosyn 500mg pills $154.00 the one that made me realize that I was damn proud to be a nurse.

Naprosyn 500mg pills $154.00 Because right now I don’t feel like posting something funny, naprosyn 500mg pills $154.00 or cute.

Naprosyn 500mg pills $154.00 I need to see this ad again.

Naprosyn 500mg pills $154.00 Having a bit of a burnout/compassion fatigue/why-the-hell-am-I-still-working-in-ER-at-my-age life crises.

Naprosyn 500mg pills $154.00 Been there, naprosyn 500mg pills $154.00 done that a few times.

Naprosyn 500mg pills $154.00 A case manager is in this ER nurse, naprosyn 500mg pills $154.00 why is it invisible on my resume?

Naprosyn 500mg pills $154.00 Feel like chucking it all and moving to Portland and being a totally cool full-time grandmother who takes her grandson to all the NASCAR races…

Naprosyn 500mg pills $154.00 Okay, naprosyn 500mg pills $154.00 he isn’t born yet, naprosyn 500mg pills $154.00 but you get the idea.


Naprosyn 500mg pills $154.00 Reader’s Digest has published an article, naprosyn 500mg pills $154.00 “50 Secrets Nurses Won’t Tell You“. Naprosyn 500mg pills $154.00 The link will take you to the article itself, naprosyn 500mg pills $154.00 and Sandy Summers has written a review of the article at The Truth About Nursing.

There are some interesting “secrets” here – and you’ll recognize a few of the names!

Gina from Code Blog is in there, naprosyn 500mg pills $154.00 and so is Jo from Head Nurse!


I’ll be the first person to tell you that I am not a perfect person, naprosyn 500mg pills $154.00 and not a perfect nurse, naprosyn 500mg pills $154.00 but two of these “secrets” really ticked me off.


The first one:

3. Naprosyn 500mg pills $154.00 “Feel free to tell us about your personal life, naprosyn 500mg pills $154.00 but know that we’re here for 12 hours with nothing to talk about. Naprosyn 500mg pills $154.00 So the stuff you tell us will probably get repeated.” A nurse in St. Naprosyn 500mg pills $154.00 Petersburg, naprosyn 500mg pills $154.00 Florida

Naprosyn 500mg pills $154.00 Seriously?

Naprosyn 500mg pills $154.00 I have steam coming out my ears.

Naprosyn 500mg pills $154.00 Maybe my colleague works in a thumb-twiddling clinic, naprosyn 500mg pills $154.00 but we have plenty to talk about in my emergency department. Naprosyn 500mg pills $154.00 We talk with the patients, naprosyn 500mg pills $154.00 not about them, naprosyn 500mg pills $154.00 and we are too busy hauling our derrieres around to gossip. Naprosyn 500mg pills $154.00 When we do, naprosyn 500mg pills $154.00 finally, naprosyn 500mg pills $154.00 have a chance to sit down, naprosyn 500mg pills $154.00 the last thing we think about are the personal lives of patients, naprosyn 500mg pills $154.00 unless it directly affects their care.

Naprosyn 500mg pills $154.00 But thanks, naprosyn 500mg pills $154.00 now everyone who reads this “secret” thinks that nurses are lazy asses who have nothing to do but gossip on their 12-hour shift.

Naprosyn 500mg pills $154.00 Good stuff.

Remind me to stay away from St. Naprosyn 500mg pills $154.00 Petersburg…

4. Naprosyn 500mg pills $154.00 “A lot of my patients are incontinent, naprosyn 500mg pills $154.00 and I’m supposed to just use a wet washcloth to clean them. Naprosyn 500mg pills $154.00 But if it’s a patient who’s been really nice and appreciative, naprosyn 500mg pills $154.00 I’ll go all the way to intensive care to get some of the heated wet wipes, naprosyn 500mg pills $154.00 which are a lot more gentle. Naprosyn 500mg pills $154.00 Somebody who’s constantly yelling at me? I just use the washcloth.” A nurse in St. Naprosyn 500mg pills $154.00 Petersburg, naprosyn 500mg pills $154.00 Florida

Naprosyn 500mg pills $154.00 So… excellent patient care is only given to those who “deserve” it. Naprosyn 500mg pills $154.00 Everyone else gets “good enough.” Got that, naprosyn 500mg pills $154.00 general public?

Naprosyn 500mg pills $154.00 They didn’t teach me that in nursing school, naprosyn 500mg pills $154.00 good thing this “secret” filled me in.

Naprosyn 500mg pills $154.00 For anyone in the general population who is reading this – these are not nursing “secrets”. Naprosyn 500mg pills $154.00 These are descriptions of the personal practices of one nurse. Naprosyn 500mg pills $154.00 I read all 50 secrets and I’ll go with the other 48.

Naprosyn 500mg pills $154.00 Rest assured, naprosyn 500mg pills $154.00 your personal life is not customarily dismantled at the nursing station and your care is not based on your disposition.

Naprosyn 500mg pills $154.00 Nurses are too damn busy to gossip and too damn professional to base your care on how nice you are.

Naprosyn 500mg pills $154.00 I guess 48/50 ain’t bad.
