Ibuprofen 200mg Pills $81.00

Ibuprofen 200mg pills $81.00 I’m using my favorite ad council promo, ibuprofen 200mg pills $81.00 the one that made me realize that I was damn proud to be a nurse.

Ibuprofen 200mg pills $81.00 Because right now I don’t feel like posting something funny, ibuprofen 200mg pills $81.00 or cute.

Ibuprofen 200mg pills $81.00 I need to see this ad again.

Ibuprofen 200mg pills $81.00 Having a bit of a burnout/compassion fatigue/why-the-hell-am-I-still-working-in-ER-at-my-age life crises.

Ibuprofen 200mg pills $81.00 Been there, ibuprofen 200mg pills $81.00 done that a few times.

Ibuprofen 200mg pills $81.00 A case manager is in this ER nurse, ibuprofen 200mg pills $81.00 why is it invisible on my resume?

Ibuprofen 200mg pills $81.00 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…

Ibuprofen 200mg pills $81.00 Okay, ibuprofen 200mg pills $81.00 he isn’t born yet, ibuprofen 200mg pills $81.00 but you get the idea.


Ibuprofen 200mg pills $81.00 Reader’s Digest has published an article, ibuprofen 200mg pills $81.00 “50 Secrets Nurses Won’t Tell You“. Ibuprofen 200mg pills $81.00 The link will take you to the article itself, ibuprofen 200mg pills $81.00 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, ibuprofen 200mg pills $81.00 and so is Jo from Head Nurse!


I’ll be the first person to tell you that I am not a perfect person, ibuprofen 200mg pills $81.00 and not a perfect nurse, ibuprofen 200mg pills $81.00 but two of these “secrets” really ticked me off.


The first one:

3. Ibuprofen 200mg pills $81.00 “Feel free to tell us about your personal life, ibuprofen 200mg pills $81.00 but know that we’re here for 12 hours with nothing to talk about. Ibuprofen 200mg pills $81.00 So the stuff you tell us will probably get repeated.” A nurse in St. Ibuprofen 200mg pills $81.00 Petersburg, ibuprofen 200mg pills $81.00 Florida

Ibuprofen 200mg pills $81.00 Seriously?

Ibuprofen 200mg pills $81.00 I have steam coming out my ears.

Ibuprofen 200mg pills $81.00 Maybe my colleague works in a thumb-twiddling clinic, ibuprofen 200mg pills $81.00 but we have plenty to talk about in my emergency department. Ibuprofen 200mg pills $81.00 We talk with the patients, ibuprofen 200mg pills $81.00 not about them, ibuprofen 200mg pills $81.00 and we are too busy hauling our derrieres around to gossip. Ibuprofen 200mg pills $81.00 When we do, ibuprofen 200mg pills $81.00 finally, ibuprofen 200mg pills $81.00 have a chance to sit down, ibuprofen 200mg pills $81.00 the last thing we think about are the personal lives of patients, ibuprofen 200mg pills $81.00 unless it directly affects their care.

Ibuprofen 200mg pills $81.00 But thanks, ibuprofen 200mg pills $81.00 now everyone who reads this “secret” thinks that nurses are lazy asses who have nothing to do but gossip on their 12-hour shift.

Ibuprofen 200mg pills $81.00 Good stuff.

Remind me to stay away from St. Ibuprofen 200mg pills $81.00 Petersburg…

4. Ibuprofen 200mg pills $81.00 “A lot of my patients are incontinent, ibuprofen 200mg pills $81.00 and I’m supposed to just use a wet washcloth to clean them. Ibuprofen 200mg pills $81.00 But if it’s a patient who’s been really nice and appreciative, ibuprofen 200mg pills $81.00 I’ll go all the way to intensive care to get some of the heated wet wipes, ibuprofen 200mg pills $81.00 which are a lot more gentle. Ibuprofen 200mg pills $81.00 Somebody who’s constantly yelling at me? I just use the washcloth.” A nurse in St. Ibuprofen 200mg pills $81.00 Petersburg, ibuprofen 200mg pills $81.00 Florida

Ibuprofen 200mg pills $81.00 So… excellent patient care is only given to those who “deserve” it. Ibuprofen 200mg pills $81.00 Everyone else gets “good enough.” Got that, ibuprofen 200mg pills $81.00 general public?

Ibuprofen 200mg pills $81.00 They didn’t teach me that in nursing school, ibuprofen 200mg pills $81.00 good thing this “secret” filled me in.

Ibuprofen 200mg pills $81.00 For anyone in the general population who is reading this – these are not nursing “secrets”. Ibuprofen 200mg pills $81.00 These are descriptions of the personal practices of one nurse. Ibuprofen 200mg pills $81.00 I read all 50 secrets and I’ll go with the other 48.

Ibuprofen 200mg pills $81.00 Rest assured, ibuprofen 200mg pills $81.00 your personal life is not customarily dismantled at the nursing station and your care is not based on your disposition.

Ibuprofen 200mg pills $81.00 Nurses are too damn busy to gossip and too damn professional to base your care on how nice you are.

Ibuprofen 200mg pills $81.00 I guess 48/50 ain’t bad.

    Thanks Kim!

    I had to read it after that (and I recall jo mentioning it).

    Some people! Hello…I’d love to talk about my people for 12 hours because that would imply I had EXTRA time.

    Personally, I prefer to talk TO them, if I really have extra time. You find out some interesting stuff talking to your patients.

    BTW If I had a blanket or wipe warmer, I would BE queen! I miss my warmer from Saintarama big time. People really appreciate warm blankets (and towels after a bath or shower).

    oh my goodness.

    Some nurses… well you know, one bad apple does have to go and spoil the whole bunch. I sure hope she/he doesn’t have a blog. I don’t think we want them running their mouth on the internet!

    Just a wet cloth… I just don’t get that one. Skin is skin, people are people. and if you have the means to make an awkward and uncomfortable situation any less awkward and uncomfortable, then it is your duty as a nurse to do that. Guess they missed the memo.

    You’ll get your case management job. Don’t give up! The right one just hasn’t found you yet, and perhaps you are greatly needed in your ER. Who on earth could hope to fill your shoes?

    I also agree some of the “secrets” made the nursing profession look badly. Even if I did some of those things, you can better believe that I wouldn’t admit to it on the internet for goodness sake! Process of elimination and you can get fired (though some should be fired for being bad nurses).

    I just wish that a few of our fellow nurses would just step back for one moment and think…”how will this make my profession look” before speaking. I would like to think that most nurses are too busy to gossip about patients and that we provide top notch care to everyone…like they were our own mother!

    As a cop for three decades in the City of New Orleans before 2006, I have seen many things that nurses in the ER have said and done that were not professional and in question. When a gun shot wounded fellow officer was brught in to the ER (around 1990), a medical professional person leaned against the light switch, turning the lights off while the injuried officer was being treated. That so-called medical professional giggled and thought it was funny. The injuried officer was shot five times.
