Hospital Falls Are Not Always the Healthcare Provider's Fault, Or Are They? by Amanda Trujillo, MSN, RN:"In April of 2005 Mr. William Delk was a patient at Reid Hospital in Indiana when he fell while seated on a rolling commode in the bathroom. Mr. Delk had recently been a victim of a stroke that left him with complete left sided hemiparesis. He had been readmitted with complications associated with the stroke that were described as "a headache and numbness on the left side of his body." (Tammelleo, 2011) According to the case notes William was a rather large man and coupled with the injury from the stroke he was difficult to move. There were usually two to three people recruited to help move him."

Hospice being marketed as a cost-cutter for hospitals, USAToday, #nurseup #nursefriendly #hospice #eolchat:"By Kelly Kennedy, USA TODAY:"Hospice marketers, exploring possibilities for new revenue to help continue the industry's remarkable growth, are looking to exploit a provision in the 2010 health care law by persuading hospitals to send Medicare patients into end-of-life hospice care instead of readmitting them to the hospital. Such a move, the hospice marketers say, will enable hospitals to avoid paying the Medicare penalties required by the new law when hospitals discharge patients and then have to readmit them within 30 days: Instead of readmitting the patients, hospitals should send them to hospice care, which also is covered by Medicare, according to a USA TODAY analysis of marketing materials. Patients with severe heart problems and pneumonia tend to decline quickly and often move in and out of hospitals, said hospice marketing specialist Rich Chesney, who proposed the idea."

What is Nurse-to-Nurse Hostility? Kathleen Bartholomew, RN, MN #nurseup #nursefriendly:"It is the persistent downgrading experienced from your peer(s) that eventually undermines your confidence and self esteem. It is a serious problem in nursing due to increased tasks and job pressures, decreased time together and a history of powerlessness – but the biggest problem is that the damage from these behaviors is invisible. Nurse-to-nurse hostility prevents us from coming together to face our current challenges and threatens our profession on every level."

Just Us Nurses, is discussing #AmandaTrujillo, RN, #nursefriendly #nurseup:""That's what Amanda Trujillo said she was doing last April when she spoke with a patient on the eve of their surgery. "I discovered that they had a very big misunderstanding about what they were about to participate in," Trujillo told CBS 5 News. Trujillo, a licensed nurse in Arizona since 2006, said she advised the patient of possible complications. The patient decided to delay the surgery and reconsider his or her options. Trujillo said she also ordered a case management consult for the patient to be educated about hospice care. "The doctor, ultimately, is the focal point that directs care for patients," said Banner spokesman Bill Byron, who said company policy prevents nurses from ordering a case management consult."

Lori 'Minky' Radcliffe, RN, BS, CFNC, CFPC, Founder of Certified Fitness Nurse™ Academy, @loriminkyrad:"At CertifiedFitnessNurseCoach.com we are not personal trainers who happen to be nurses. We show nurses how to stay in the health care industry and promote exercise within a 'not-so-healthy' pre-diabetic population;and NOT try to be a nurse in the fitness 'percieved healthy' industry. Just as waist reduction is 20% exercise and 80% diet; Certified Fitness Nurse™ Coaches are 20% fitness and 80% nursing in our practice. We teach a physical-environmental-financial-social-emotional model... like a nursing assessment.

We offer a 23-hour certification course for nurses who are fitness enthusiasts, who want to help pre-diabetics, with a specifically designed program for them, that will improve their health and reduce their waists in a sustainable manner. This is done through a 12-week group coaching course via the computer, video and telephone. We also teach you how to get started with only a few clients working part-time, from home and making full time money in a scalable business model. The physician and other health care professionals are actually where we get our clients and we utilize a fitness nursing assessment to determine the right minimum effective dose (M.E.D.) of diet, exercise and supplementation, the right client and the right time, which are the 3 Rights of a Certified Fitness Nurse™ Coach."

"Would You Recommend Nursing" by Annette Tersigni RN, The Yoga Nurse:"Nursing is a calling. I am a non-traditional nurse and I recommend non-traditional nursing. I was called when I was 48 years young and graduated at 51. The smartest move I ever made in my life. Becoming a nurse was not what I expected though. The 'eating your young thing.' Yikes! I was and am still a yoga teacher, all about 'expanding consciousness' loving kindness, compassion. Sadly I found that the nurses I first worked with at a big 'law dee da' famous hospital were less than supportive. Then I moved to a small town in North Carolina with a 140-bed hospital. It all changed. The nurses there were awesome and helped me to become a competent cardiac nurse."

Amber continued her education by completing her Master's Degree in Nursing with an emphasis in Wellness Promotion and becoming certified as a Health Coach. From Hospital Nurse to Health Coach: During Amber's nursing career, she began to question her ability to help people in the hospital. She witnessed many people get discharged from the hospital with more medications only to wind up readmitted a few days later. People were not getting healthier despite all the care provided. She felt there was a better way to help these people."

Gillian Ehrlich, RN, 2009-2010 Winners, Nurses' Educational Funds, Inc.:"Gillian Ehrlich's mission is to make holistic health our common ground in medicine and improve universal access to primary care. This vision of health evolved over a decade spent working mainly with non-profit organizations in direct-service level positions. Beginning with the Pacific Crest Outward Bound School and other wilderness programs, she shared with adolescents the elements required for healthy living: food, shelter, community, exercise, purpose and competency, joy and fresh air. Onto this foundation, she added a season of growing organic food for 25 families in southwest Ohio and functioning as a teacher and domestic violence counselor on the Yankton Sioux Reservation in Lake Andes, South Dakota. Health has been the consistent thread and nursing became the venue for the life-long application of these skills and values. Gillian graduated with a BA/BS degree from The Evergreen State College in Olympia, Washington and a BSN from Drexel University in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. She balances her understanding of allopathic medicine with 1000+ hours of Ayurvedic training with Dr. Vasant Lad in Albuquerque, New Mexico, and Pune, India. She emerged with sound convictions that health and contentment are possible for each of us, that authentic relationships and a clean environment account for much of this, and that we start healing from whatever shoes in which we currently stand. Gillian currently works as an RN at Harborview Medical Center in Seattle, Washington and is studying towards a Doctorate of Nursing Practice as a Family Nurse Practitioner at the University of Washington. Her focus is relationship-centered care, innovative health delivery systems and integrating complementary and alternative medicine into public health primary care."

Infantile Spasms Advocacy Network, Patricia A. Coonan, R.N., C.E.N., L.N.C.:"Infantile Spasms (sometimes called West Syndrome) is a condition that begins in infancy. Babies with this condition show abnormal, jerking body movements, also called spasms; hence the name, Infantile Spasms. The cause of Infantile Spasms is not always known. However, the most common known cause of Infantile Spasms is a lack of oxygen to the baby during delivery. In some cases the brain damage caused by this lack of oxygen could have been prevented if doctors had taken proper steps during delivery to insure the baby was receiving enough oxygen. As a result, many children who have Infantile Spasms are victims of medical malpractice."

The image of nursing: Does nursing's media image matter? 9 September, 2010 | By Sandy Summers:"Isn't television just a lot of rubbish that no one takes seriously? Most nurses would agree that the media's treatment of nursing falls short of a fair and accurate portrayal. Of course, there are some serious news reports about the nature and challenges of the profession. And even the entertainment media has offered a few helpful depictions in recent years, showing nurses as troubled but skilled professionals with some autonomy. But the dominant images remain the stereotypes we find in the most popular television shows and global advertising. In these ubiquitous media products, nurses tend to be no more than submissive helpers of the physicians who do everything that matters, or else vacuous sex toys who help companies sell everything from milk to chewing gum."

At your first visit to a midwife, she'll take a comprehensive medical history, answer any questions you have, perform a physical exam, and have laboratory screenings done. She can make arrangements for any prenatal testing you want to have done that she doesn't do herself, such as ultrasound or amniocentesis. If it turns out that you have certain medical or obstetrical conditions — such as high blood pressure or triplets — that require the care of an obstetrician or a perinatalogist (a high-risk specialist), she'll refer you to one."

    Brilliant Communication or Chicken Scratch? How to Read a Doctor's Prescription, Ask Your Pharmacist!:"Q. What does all that doctor's scribble on my prescription mean? Is there a trick to help me read prescriptions? A. Just like the English speak English, French speak French and the Vietnamese speak Vietnamese, doctors, nurses and pharmacists speak the language of medicine. It takes years of training to understand what might be spoken amongst health care professionals in your local hospital or the dense pages of information written in your own medical chart. Your prescription is an extension of this medical terminology. It contains key information and directions regarding your medication including the name, the dose, how to take it, when to take it, how frequently it should be ingested, and when the medication should be stopped, if it is to be taken for a definite duration."

    Nightshift, Working Nights, Shift Work:"Working nights is a challenge for most nursing staff especially when one has to work for 4-5 nights in a row. Some nights are easy and some nights are chaotic. The nursing activities at night are slightly different in some areas such as in Mother-Baby Unit because most new mothers are healthy and they need more rest period. However, think about the trauma that comes in the emergency room every night and face non- stop excitement, drama, and stress. Or in the intensive care unit where one has to deal with codes after codes or ventilator intermittently beeping one patient after the other. All these situations can cause physical and emotional stress especially when working on the night shift."

We constantly work short staffed and nurses are always calling in. I should also mention I work midnights. I love being a nurse and I am very disappointed at the way i feel. I don't want to leave nursing or the health profession but I don't know what to do. Everyday I go to work I am nervous and constantly feel that my license is in jepordy."

    Menstruation, Menstrual Cycles, Menses, Periods, Womens Health, Gynecology, Direct Patient Care:"Menstruation (a period) is a major stage of puberty in girls; it's one of the many physical signs that a girl is turning into a woman. And like a lot of the other changes associated with puberty, menstruation can be confusing. Some girls can't wait to start their periods, whereas others may feel afraid or anxious. Many girls (and guys!) don't have a complete understanding of a woman's reproductive system or what actually happens during the menstrual cycle, making the process seem even more mysterious."

    Wikipedia.org, Bronchodilators :"A bronchodilator is a substance that dilates the bronchi and bronchioles, increasing airflow. Bronchodilators may be endogenous (originating naturally within the body), or they may be medications administered for the treatment of breathing difficulties. Bronchial asthma is the most common application of these drugs. They are also intended to help improve the breathing capacity of patients with emphysema, pneumonia and bronchitis. Bronchodilators belong to a group of pharmaceutics called ß2 mimetics, which act on ß2 receptors in bronchial smooth muscle and bronchial mucous membranes. Bronchodilators, in particular non-prescription ones, are often misused as stimulants. A common side-effect of these medications is desensitization, which may produce refractory bronchospasm. Bronchodilators are either short-acting or long-acting. Short-acting medications provide quick or "rescue" relief from acute bronchoconstriction. Long-acting bronchodilators help to control and prevent symptoms. The three types of prescription bronchodilating drugs are ß2-agonists (short- and long-acting), anticholinergics (short-acting), and theophylline (long-acting)."

    WebMD, Asthma Guide, Bronchodilators: Relieving Asthma Symptoms:"One type of medication is used by almost all people with asthma: a bronchodilator. Short-acting bronchodilators are used only as needed as asthma "rescue" medications, while long-acting bronchodilators are used every day to control asthma. Bronchodilators open up the bronchial tubes so that more air can move through. Bronchodilators also help clear mucus from the lungs. As the airways open, the mucus moves more freely and can be coughed out (expelled) more easily."

    Purdue Pharma What are Bronchodilators? :"Bronchodilators are drugs used in treatment of COPD (chronic obstructive airway disease) and reversible obstructive airway diseases such as asthma. Purdue Pharma currently has two bronchodilator products: Uniphyl and PhylloContin. Once-daily Uniphyl tablets are a sustained release formulation of theophylline used to treat symptoms of asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Theophylline eases the cough, wheezing, shortness of breath, and troubled breathing associated with these conditions by relaxing and opening the bronchial tubes allowing increased amounts of air to flow into the lungs. PhylloContin tablets contain aminophylline, which is used to treat symptoms of asthma, chronic bronchitis and emphysema. It relaxes and opens air passages in the lungs, making it easier to breathe."

    Healthline, Precautions, Bronchodilators:"Bronchodilators come with patient instructions. Be sure to carefully read them before using the medicine. If there is any confusion about how to use the medicine, check with the physician or pharmacist. Always use these medicines exactly as directed. Taking larger than recommended doses or using the medicine too often can lead to serious side effects and even death. If symptoms do not improve or if they get worse after using a bronchodilator, call a physician right away. Although some bronchodilators are available without a physician's prescription, these medicines should not be used unless a physician has diagnosed the patient's condition as asthma."

    Bronchodilators for bronchiolitis, Gadomski AM, Bhasale AL, Cochrane Reviews:"Bronchodilators produce short-term improvements in infants with bronchiolitis but more research is needed Bronchiolitis is an acute, highly infectious lower respiratory tract (chest) infection that is common in infants. It causes the small airways in the lungs to become inflamed, blocking the free passage of air so that the infant becomes breathless, wheezy and short of oxygen. Bronchodilators are drugs often used as aerosols to widen the air passages by relaxing the bronchial muscle. They are effective in helping infants and adults with asthma. However unlike asthmatics, infants with bronchiolitis are usually wheezing for the first time and wheezing for a different reason, that is to say, because their airways are obstructed as opposed to bronchoconstricted. Therefore, infants with bronchiolitis may be less likely to respond to bronchodilators."

The loss of a pregnancy before 20 weeks is called early pregnancy loss. Often, the loss is a miscarriage (sometimes called spontaneous abortion by doctors). A rare form of pregnancy loss is molar pregnancy. The loss of a pregnancy—no matter how early—involves more than the loss of a fetus. For many women, miscarriage also results in feelings of loss and grief.

    Miscarriage, American Pregnancy Association:"Spontaneous abortion (SAB), or miscarriage, is the term used for a pregnancy that ends on it's own, within the first 20 weeks of gestation. The medical name spontaneous abortion (SAB) gives many women a negative feeling, so throughout this article we will refer to any type of spontaneous abortion or pregnancy loss under 20 weeks as miscarriage. Miscarriage is the most common type of pregnancy loss, according to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG). Studies reveal that anywhere from 10-25% of all clinically recognized pregnancies will end in miscarriage. Chemical pregnancies may account for 50-75% of all miscarriages. This occurs when a pregnancy is lost shortly after implantation, resulting in bleeding that occurs around the time of her expected period. The woman may not realize that she conceived when she experiences a chemical pregnancy."

A miscarriage may also be called a "spontaneous abortion." This refers to naturally occurring events, not elective or therapeutic abortion procedures, which a woman may choose to have done. Other terms for the early loss of pregnancy include: Missed abortion (a loss of pregnancy where the products of conception do not exit the body) Incomplete abortion (not all of the products of conception exit the body) Complete abortion (all of the products of conception exit the body) Threatened abortion (symptoms indicate a miscarriage is possible) Inevitable abortion (the symptoms cannot be stopped, and a miscarriage will happen) Infected abortion."

    :"Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) is a virus. You may hear that someone is "HIV infected", "has HIV infection", or "has HIV disease." These are all terms that mean the person has HIV in his or her body and can pass the virus to other people. HIV attacks the body's immune system. The immune system protects the body from infections and disease, but has no clear way to protect it from HIV. Over time, most people infected with HIV become less able to fight off the germs that we are all exposed to every day. Many of these germs do not usually make a healthy person sick, but they can cause life-threatening infections and cancers in a person whose immune system has been weakened by HIV. People infected with HIV may have no symptoms for 10 or more years. They may not know they are infected. An HIV test is the only way to find out if you have HIV.

He is never quite the hero his daughter thinks . . . Never quite the man his son believes him to be. And this worries him sometimes. (So he works too hard to try to smooth the rough places in the road of those of his own who will follow him.)"

    Labor Of Love, Supporting The Development Of Preterm Infants, Nurseweek:"Physiologically unprepared for life outside the womb, preterm infants have traditionally undergone intense, intrusive, and medically focused care. But what happens when preemies get care that focuses on developmental support? The NICU at California Hospital Medical Center has provided an answer: dramatically improved outcomes."

    BabyZone's Premature Baby Page, Dr. Nathan:"The purpose of this site is to educate and support parents, other family members and friends of prematurely born infants. Having a baby born prematurely usually frightens parents. Depending on the degree of prematurity, your newborn baby may be at risk of serious illness and even death. These pages provide information, not medical advice. Your doctor and your baby's doctor are the best sources for medical advice."

    Helping Parents Cope With A High-Risk Birth: Terror, Grief, Impotence, And Anger, Michael T. Hynan, Ph.D. :"Today I will talk about each of the emotions of terror, grief, impotence, and anger as they occur in high- risk parents. You will learn about my family and how we experienced these unfortunate feelings during my son's birth. And you will also hear the stories of many high- risk parents, who have shared their emotional struggles with me. I hope to be able to put some substance and feelings into abstract works like grief and impotence, to express the feelings that many times we high- risk parents hold back- - because we are afraid people and especially the medical staff will think we are crazy and that we can't handle our crises."
