Sheltering in Place

triviaThey are pondering a great philosophical question here.

Like, “Will Emergiblog ever get off her derriere and post something?”

Right up there with “what came first, the chicken or the egg?”

Things should be settling down by the end of the week and I plan to take up residence in a local Starbucks and blog until my fingers ache!

Lord knows I have a huge list of topics!!!

Until then, I guess you can say I’m “sheltering in place”.



Back in the days of starched caps and white hose, I would have definitely worn Agnes’ uniforms!

For the next two days, Scrubs Gallery is offering Emergiblog readers a 20% discount on all Scrub Tops,

Just use the link above and enter the code word “emergitops” at check out! The discount is good for December 7th and 8th.

Scrubs Gallery has been a supporter of Emergiblog for ages, so I am happy to be able to pass along the coupon!

Many thanks to Aaron at S.G. headquarters!



Change of Shift will be here on Thursday!

Change of Shift – Thanksgiving Edition

OffwhitelogoHappy Thanksgiving from Change of Shift!

A ton of great submissions, and not a single turkey among them!

Sit down, grab a hot cup of coffee, let that Thanksgiving dinner settle (all diets start tomorrow) and enjoy the best of the nursing blogosphere!


Barbara Olson not only writes about patient safety at Florence dot com, she is also a contributor to Medscape. And she is thankful for sniglets (no, not those blankets with sleeves, those are Snuglies). Find out why in Safescape? Medscafety? Safety Sniglets I’d be Happy to Have!

That blur you happen to see on the floors just might be Jane! She’s turned into the go-to gal for procedures in Let Me Do It posted at See Jane Nurse. Girlfriend, you need to get yourself down to an ER!!!

Rachael hits on a pet peeve of mine over at NursesPTO and that happens to be VIP Patients. Money can’t buy you love, but it sure can buy you some health care perks…


If Mamatrauma charts as thoroughly as she writes about her critical patient in We Saved Your Life, Now You Take Over, I’m turning my Charting Queen trophy over to her! Great title, by the way. Wish I had thought of it….

Over at Nursing Student Chronicles, there was A Little Less Hand Holding? Not of the patients, but of our intrepid student nurse blogger! Congratulations on getting the hang of clinicals!

Kathy over at The Nursing Site Blog believes that Nursing Novellas Offer Unique Teaching Tool and reviews two of them in this post. Beats dry and boring textbooks, I’m sure!


Over at The Man-Nurse Diaries, Man-Nurse wants your opinion on Chest Hair and Scrubs. Heck, if a guy can have a beard, a little chest hair doesn’t bother me. (As I choose to remain professional at all times, I’ll refrain from saying that it looks, like, sexy. Or anything.)

Sara at looks at nursing and the economy in What Does the Nursing Shortage Really Mean for Your Career?


Many thanks to those who have contributed, read and continue to make Change of Shift possible!

Then next edition of CoS will be here at Emergiblog. I will be in contact with those who have offered to host. If you would like to host a future CoS, shoot me an email!

And Happy Thanksgiving!

As for me, I’m all about the stuffing…..

Happy Thanksgiving – Change of Shift Up Friday Afternoon

Hi all!

As I am celebrating the holiday with family, Change of Shift will be posted here on Friday afternoon – probably earlier but my computer access is spotty at the moment.

Thanks for your patience and enjoy the holiday! : )
