  1. Does the federal Covid mandates apply to homecare nurses?
  2. Covid Abuse!

    The nurse, if the Canadian story is true, either gave the wrong medication or violated the patient's right to refuse. If I gave the wrong medication or violated a patient's rights, I'd feel like I deserved a punch, but that's just me holding myself t...
  3. Nurses Promoting COVID Misinformation

    That is the definition of free speech. Just because I may not agree with something that somebody says, it does not give me the right to prevent them from speaking. As my dear wise father used to say "I may not agree with what you're saying, but I'll ...
  4. Covid Abuse!

    I looked up the original story on a Canadian newsite since the incident was supposed to have happened there. According to that article: "They say he accused the nurse of vaccinating his wife against her consent and repeatedly punched the nurse before...

  8. Ever have a patient complain about you?

    The only complaint I know of was from a family member. I was in the middle of a long treatment on another patient. This lady wanted me to come listen to her husband's cough, despite the fact that I hadn't heard a cough for the first 7 hours of my sh...
  9. Things you'd LOVE to tell coworkers...and get away with it!

    Stop using 'teamwork' as code for 'please do all the annoying parts of my job while I do the easy stuff.' Don't let me hear in report that somebody's abdomen is distended when in reality they look like they're about to give birth. Maybe somebody sho...
