Map

Map I love my co-workers.

Map When things get absurd and all I want to do is smack my head, map they make me laugh.

Map Case-in-point:

Map We were informed that Half-and-Half would no longer be provided to staff or patients. Map Those choosing to use creamer in their coffee would be offered Coffee-Mate, map or could choose to “BYOH&H.”

Map “Corporate” decided this would make a good cost-cutting measure.

*****

Map “Corporate” is like the “Not Me” character in the “Family Circus” comic. Map Blamed for everything, map but never actually seen.

Map

Map Normally, map this would have engendered an eye-rolling, map how-much-money-do-they-think-they-will-save, map 5-minute conversation and that would have been that.

Map However, map the email noted:

Map Half-and-Half would be available for all physicians and administrators!

Map Say what?

*****

But, map no.

This was legit.

And I was pissed.

Not at the loss of the half-and-half, map but the principle of the thing.

Surely the idea that physicians and administrators were more important than staff or patients, map or were superior groups to be coddled and pampered was a remnant of the 1950s, map something to be looked back on as a relic of a less enlightened time!

Er, map no.

*****

This was such a slap in the face to the staff, map and in writing, map no less!

Combined with everything “Corporate” has done (or been blamed for) over the last year, map it was just too much.

Then one day, map I walk in and see the “Will Work for Half-and-Half” jar. Map

With donations in it!

I LOL’s until I had chest pain.

That’s the kind of humor that permeates my department.

And that is why I work where I work.

Working with colleagues who have a great collective sense of humor is worth its weight in…well, map Half-and-Half!!!!

And right now, map that stuff is like gold in my ER….

Women's Health Lukol 50 Tablet Bottle $356.00

Women's health gestanin 5mg pills (generic) $258.00 Ah! A Barbie nurse outfit!

Women's health gestanin 5mg pills (generic) $258.00 We’ve come a long way from my 1962 Barbie with the starched white uniform and blue, women's health gestanin 5mg pills (generic) $258.00 red-lined cape. Women's health gestanin 5mg pills (generic) $258.00 She carries a hot water bottle and wears the best cap ever.

Women's health gestanin 5mg pills (generic) $258.00 Now, women's health gestanin 5mg pills (generic) $258.00 Barbie wears scrubs with sparkly pants and carries charts with hearts on them.

Women's health gestanin 5mg pills (generic) $258.00 Give them credit, women's health gestanin 5mg pills (generic) $258.00 this comes with an otoscope and a stethoscope.

Women's health gestanin 5mg pills (generic) $258.00 I was about to give hell for the hooker-high open-toed shoes, women's health gestanin 5mg pills (generic) $258.00 then I realized my Barbie wears open-toed white pumps.

Women's health gestanin 5mg pills (generic) $258.00 No controversy here, women's health gestanin 5mg pills (generic) $258.00 moving along.

*****

I’ve been busy!

First, women's health gestanin 5mg pills (generic) $258.00 I was blogging for multiple sites, women's health gestanin 5mg pills (generic) $258.00 which left me little time or energy for my own blog. Women's health gestanin 5mg pills (generic) $258.00 It was a great experience, women's health gestanin 5mg pills (generic) $258.00 and I learned much about writing under pressure. Women's health gestanin 5mg pills (generic) $258.00 I will say this: blogging with deadlines is totally different than having your own “space” and just putting down thoughts and communicating with readers.

Writing became something I had to do instead of something I wanted to do. Women's health gestanin 5mg pills (generic) $258.00 I didn’t want to lose my passion for blogging, women's health gestanin 5mg pills (generic) $258.00 so I made the decision to scale back to writing solely for Emergiblog. Women's health gestanin 5mg pills (generic) $258.00 I want to thank Masters In Nursing.com and AllHealthCareJobs.com for the opportunity to be on their writing staffs.

Then, women's health gestanin 5mg pills (generic) $258.00 life has gotten a bit exciting!

*****

My youngest daughter, women's health gestanin 5mg pills (generic) $258.00 Rebecca, women's health gestanin 5mg pills (generic) $258.00 graduated from nursing school last month!

She sat for the NCLEX at the end of May, women's health gestanin 5mg pills (generic) $258.00 and passed with the minimum number of questions needed.

Am I a proud mom?

You better believe it!

And the minute she passed the NCLEX, women's health gestanin 5mg pills (generic) $258.00 the job interviews started coming!

We are keeping our fingers crossed.

*****

In March, women's health gestanin 5mg pills (generic) $258.00 we became grandparents for the first time!

Ewan was born to my oldest daughter, women's health gestanin 5mg pills (generic) $258.00 Lillian, women's health gestanin 5mg pills (generic) $258.00 and son-in-law Jim. Women's health gestanin 5mg pills (generic) $258.00 I was in the delivery room when he was born. Women's health gestanin 5mg pills (generic) $258.00 The last delivery I saw was in nursing school and I fainted at that one! I’m happy to say I did not faint when Ewan was born!

He’s a big guy, women's health gestanin 5mg pills (generic) $258.00 9 pounds, women's health gestanin 5mg pills (generic) $258.00 12 ounces and 22 inches long at birth. Women's health gestanin 5mg pills (generic) $258.00 At 2 months he weighed 13 pounds. Women's health gestanin 5mg pills (generic) $258.00 Nana (me) is getting pumped biceps just lifting him.

*****

As if that weren’t enough, women's health gestanin 5mg pills (generic) $258.00 I’ve been spending the last month on a different type of baby:

Women's health gestanin 5mg pills (generic) $258.00 I’ve been fostering these four feral kittens, women's health gestanin 5mg pills (generic) $258.00 caught by my son around his apartment complex.

Women's health gestanin 5mg pills (generic) $258.00 It’s fun! I feed them, women's health gestanin 5mg pills (generic) $258.00 pet them, women's health gestanin 5mg pills (generic) $258.00 scoop their cat box, women's health gestanin 5mg pills (generic) $258.00 and in return they treat me like a human cat tree and eat my earrings.

Women's health gestanin 5mg pills (generic) $258.00 Fortunately, women's health gestanin 5mg pills (generic) $258.00 they all now have homes and I will be saying good-bye by the end of the week.

*****

Women's health gestanin 5mg pills (generic) $258.00 Oh, women's health gestanin 5mg pills (generic) $258.00 and did I mention I’m working a ton of overtime?

Women's health gestanin 5mg pills (generic) $258.00 Yep, women's health gestanin 5mg pills (generic) $258.00 things have been jumping around here, women's health gestanin 5mg pills (generic) $258.00 but in a good way.

Women's health gestanin 5mg pills (generic) $258.00 My writing mojo is back now that the pressure is off to produce on deadline. Women's health gestanin 5mg pills (generic) $258.00 My goal for my MSN is on hold – somehow, women's health gestanin 5mg pills (generic) $258.00 there are just other things I want to focus on right now.

Women's health gestanin 5mg pills (generic) $258.00 School will always be there.

Women's health gestanin 5mg pills (generic) $258.00 Babies grow up.

Women's health gestanin 5mg pills (generic) $258.00 How well I know that…

ED Trial Packs Viagra 100mg + Levitra 20mg Pills (Generic) $123.00

Hair loss treatment propecia 1mg pills (brand) 28 $144.00 I am not a conspiracy theorist.

Hair loss treatment propecia 1mg pills (brand) 28 $144.00 I am not militant.

Hair loss treatment propecia 1mg pills (brand) 28 $144.00 I am not a bleeding heart, hair loss treatment propecia 1mg pills (brand) 28 $144.00 I don’t embrace every cause du jour, hair loss treatment propecia 1mg pills (brand) 28 $144.00 nor do I hop on what someone termed a “clown car of supporters” for whatever happens to run across the blogosphere on a given day.

Hair loss treatment propecia 1mg pills (brand) 28 $144.00 I am as straight-arrow, hair loss treatment propecia 1mg pills (brand) 28 $144.00 by-the-book, hair loss treatment propecia 1mg pills (brand) 28 $144.00 trust-the-Establishment as you will find in this world.

Hair loss treatment propecia 1mg pills (brand) 28 $144.00 So when I say that I am reeling; when I say that I would take to the streets about something that has happened…when I say that I am questioning everything I thought I knew about authority, hair loss treatment propecia 1mg pills (brand) 28 $144.00 power…and nursing…

Hair loss treatment propecia 1mg pills (brand) 28 $144.00 I’m not bluffing, hair loss treatment propecia 1mg pills (brand) 28 $144.00 over-reacting or being hysterical.

Hair loss treatment propecia 1mg pills (brand) 28 $144.00 Pardon my unprofessional language, hair loss treatment propecia 1mg pills (brand) 28 $144.00 but there is some bad s*** going down in Arizona.

**********

The Arizona Board of Nursing has gone from ridiculous to abusive in the Amanda Trujillo case.

It wasn’t bad enough that they felt clicking a box on a computer that would order a case management hospice consult should mean enduring:

(a) a detailed interrogation about every facet of your entire career, hair loss treatment propecia 1mg pills (brand) 28 $144.00

(b) or that talking about your situation should lead to a psychiatric evaluation, hair loss treatment propecia 1mg pills (brand) 28 $144.00 including obtaining signed releases from all your physicians for the last six years and seeing a board appointed PhD. Hair loss treatment propecia 1mg pills (brand) 28 $144.00 Yep, hair loss treatment propecia 1mg pills (brand) 28 $144.00 clicking that box meant giving up all your protected HIPAA information! I can’t repeat that enough, hair loss treatment propecia 1mg pills (brand) 28 $144.00 it’s that appalling.

But that’s old news, hair loss treatment propecia 1mg pills (brand) 28 $144.00 isn’t it?

Here’s the new stuff.

********

Amanda received a letter from her university stating they were informed by the AZBoN that her license was under investigation.

Still, hair loss treatment propecia 1mg pills (brand) 28 $144.00 old news, hair loss treatment propecia 1mg pills (brand) 28 $144.00 you say? But wait!

A Board staff member wrote a letter denying it!

At Amanda’s request to keep the name of her university out of the spotlight, hair loss treatment propecia 1mg pills (brand) 28 $144.00 I’ve not listed it here. Hair loss treatment propecia 1mg pills (brand) 28 $144.00 I have seen:

(a) the letter from her university stating they were “notified by the AZ Board of Nursing that your license is under investigation” (that’s a direct quote, hair loss treatment propecia 1mg pills (brand) 28 $144.00 italics mine.) Not that they looked it up, hair loss treatment propecia 1mg pills (brand) 28 $144.00 not that they deduced, hair loss treatment propecia 1mg pills (brand) 28 $144.00 but that they were notified.

(b) I’ve seen the BoN letter requesting confirmation of her attendance and, hair loss treatment propecia 1mg pills (brand) 28 $144.00

(c) I’ve seen the BoN letter from a staff member who denies reporting it and is “…not aware of any other Board staff member doing so.” (Italics mine.)

So who the hell did?

Amanda’s university was notified by somebody at the Board. Hair loss treatment propecia 1mg pills (brand) 28 $144.00 A request for confirmation of attendance is not a notification that a license is “under investigation.” Nowhere on the letter for confirmation does it say or intimate that the license is “under investigation.”

But it gets better…

********

Amanda is now being charged with using false “academic credentials”!

Yeah, hair loss treatment propecia 1mg pills (brand) 28 $144.00 this is what you do when (a) the original charges aren’t legitimate, hair loss treatment propecia 1mg pills (brand) 28 $144.00 (b) you’re angry that someone had the ovaries to not be afraid and stick up for herself, hair loss treatment propecia 1mg pills (brand) 28 $144.00 (c) they weren’t intimidated by the psychiatric evaluation, hair loss treatment propecia 1mg pills (brand) 28 $144.00 and (d) you need to ramp up the intimidation factor.

And I’ve seen the letters for this, hair loss treatment propecia 1mg pills (brand) 28 $144.00 too.

Amanda was accepted into a different university’s Acute Care Nurse Practitioner doctoral nursing program in the Fall of 2010. Hair loss treatment propecia 1mg pills (brand) 28 $144.00 She began using the designation “S” following the professional designation, hair loss treatment propecia 1mg pills (brand) 28 $144.00 to denote “Student” on the auto sig on her email.

Due to some major health issues that included surgery, hair loss treatment propecia 1mg pills (brand) 28 $144.00 Amanda was unable to start the program. Hair loss treatment propecia 1mg pills (brand) 28 $144.00 In November of 2010, hair loss treatment propecia 1mg pills (brand) 28 $144.00 she resigned from her job at the Mountain Vista Medical Center, hair loss treatment propecia 1mg pills (brand) 28 $144.00 using her personal email.

She had forgotten to take the “DACNP-S” off the “MSN, hair loss treatment propecia 1mg pills (brand) 28 $144.00 RN, hair loss treatment propecia 1mg pills (brand) 28 $144.00 DACNP-S” of her personal email auto sig.

********

So they are investigating this, hair loss treatment propecia 1mg pills (brand) 28 $144.00 per the Nurse Practice Act, hair loss treatment propecia 1mg pills (brand) 28 $144.00 for deceiving, hair loss treatment propecia 1mg pills (brand) 28 $144.00 harming or defrauding the public and/or stating or inferring she was a nurse practitioner through the use of the initials.

Boy, hair loss treatment propecia 1mg pills (brand) 28 $144.00 I hope all the public harmed by those six initials on her personal email sought help.

The Board found this terrible, hair loss treatment propecia 1mg pills (brand) 28 $144.00 egregious action of professional malfeasance during their extremely thorough investigation of Amanda’s career. Hair loss treatment propecia 1mg pills (brand) 28 $144.00 For the record, hair loss treatment propecia 1mg pills (brand) 28 $144.00 the Arizona Board spends an average of 7 months investigating the average complaint, hair loss treatment propecia 1mg pills (brand) 28 $144.00 on which they average 17 hours (see this open letter to Arizona’s governor, hair loss treatment propecia 1mg pills (brand) 28 $144.00 by RN Greg Mercer.)

They must really be gunning for something here. Hair loss treatment propecia 1mg pills (brand) 28 $144.00 If they had anything on the original complaint, hair loss treatment propecia 1mg pills (brand) 28 $144.00 this would have been over long before now.

What the hell is going on?

********

And let’s remember what brought this all on.

Patient education and a referral for a case management hospice consult.

No injury. Hair loss treatment propecia 1mg pills (brand) 28 $144.00 No death. Hair loss treatment propecia 1mg pills (brand) 28 $144.00 No tort.

An informed patient. Hair loss treatment propecia 1mg pills (brand) 28 $144.00 A change of heart. Hair loss treatment propecia 1mg pills (brand) 28 $144.00 A fuming physician.

And the nursing management at Banner Del E. Hair loss treatment propecia 1mg pills (brand) 28 $144.00 Webb Medical Center, hair loss treatment propecia 1mg pills (brand) 28 $144.00 who feels that patient advocacy is something to be punished and reported to the Arizona Board of Nursing.

And apparently the Arizona Board of Nursing doesn’t take kindly to being questioned and operating out in the open.

In the meantime, hair loss treatment propecia 1mg pills (brand) 28 $144.00 the American Nurses Association is “monitoring closely” and the Arizona Nurses Association is working hard for the nurses of Arizona, hair loss treatment propecia 1mg pills (brand) 28 $144.00 but can’t support an individual nurse who is under investigation.

********

I’m not here telling anyone they need to support Amanda.

Whether you are for her or against her or couldn’t care less one way or the other, hair loss treatment propecia 1mg pills (brand) 28 $144.00 so be it.

Hair loss treatment propecia 1mg pills (brand) 28 $144.00 This is a damn scary story.

Hair loss treatment propecia 1mg pills (brand) 28 $144.00 What is scarier to me is the idea that Amanda should have shut up, hair loss treatment propecia 1mg pills (brand) 28 $144.00 kept her head down and just tried to get another job.

Hair loss treatment propecia 1mg pills (brand) 28 $144.00 Is that what nursing is about? Are we so whipped by needing our paychecks that we don’t dare speak out about anything, hair loss treatment propecia 1mg pills (brand) 28 $144.00 anywhere, hair loss treatment propecia 1mg pills (brand) 28 $144.00 anytime?

Hair loss treatment propecia 1mg pills (brand) 28 $144.00 The nurses in Texas spoke out and there was support from all over the country.

Hair loss treatment propecia 1mg pills (brand) 28 $144.00 Does a nurse need to be arrested before anyone cares?

*********

Hair loss treatment propecia 1mg pills (brand) 28 $144.00 Something bad is happening in Arizona.

Hair loss treatment propecia 1mg pills (brand) 28 $144.00 From the halls of Banner Health, hair loss treatment propecia 1mg pills (brand) 28 $144.00 to the inner workings of the Arizona Board of Nursing, hair loss treatment propecia 1mg pills (brand) 28 $144.00 something is wrong.

Hair loss treatment propecia 1mg pills (brand) 28 $144.00 You can ignore it, hair loss treatment propecia 1mg pills (brand) 28 $144.00 vilify Amanda, hair loss treatment propecia 1mg pills (brand) 28 $144.00 write her off as “oh there must be something else”, hair loss treatment propecia 1mg pills (brand) 28 $144.00 or make fun of those of us who do support her, hair loss treatment propecia 1mg pills (brand) 28 $144.00 but the fact is this is not right.

Hair loss treatment propecia 1mg pills (brand) 28 $144.00 If I’m wrong, hair loss treatment propecia 1mg pills (brand) 28 $144.00 then I’m wrong and I’ll be the first to post it.

Hair loss treatment propecia 1mg pills (brand) 28 $144.00 I’m not wrong.
