No Bad Men

In: Uncategorized

There is nothing like kicking back after a hard day at work, drinking a glass of wine, and reading a good book. My husband picked this book up many years ago, and surprisingly, he didn’t hide it from me. It’s a satire based on BarbaraWoodhouse’s book, “No Bad Dogs: The Woodhouse Way,” in which she [...]

Good News!

Finally, Andrea Yates gets justice. Yesterday, a jury in Houston, Texas found Yates, a former nurse, not guilty by reason of insanity in the deaths of her five children. Yates suffered from post-partum depression, and was psychotic the day she drowned her five children in a bathtub. Yates believed she was saving her children from [...]

Alphabet Soup

In: Uncategorized

Nurses love alphabet soup. Maybe it’s a sign of aging, but I don’t know what most of those letters behind a nurse’s name mean anymore. Yes, I know they indicate what academic and certification credentials someone has earned, but there are so many new ones now, I’m getting confused. I know I’m going to stir [...]

Doctor Anonymous, do you remember these young ladies? This picture was taken many years ago at a hospital golf tournament before doctors carried beepers or cell phones. These nurses are searching for Dr. A because they need orders on a new patient. The average age of a nurse is somewhere between 48-50 years old. And [...]

The Blind Date

In: Uncategorized

Did your friends ever talk you into going on a blind date? My two friends convinced me to go on a blind date when I was in nursing school. We went out as a group. My date looked like Moe. He was a nice guy, but he just wasn’t my type. I went to nursing [...]

Hot Nurses……..

In: Uncategorized

I wonder how many hits this post is getting because of its title. Sorry, no porn here, just a discussion about hot weather and nursing uniforms. Look at these poor ladies. I can’t imagine what it was like being tied up in corset and wearing a long starched dress on a hot summer day. No [...]
