    why is this patient not allowed to die?

    Barb-- I cannot imagine the hurt, fear, distress, etc., that you and your family have been going through all of these years. There are no words I can offer you to make you feel better. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. I will say this, if someone is not deemed mentally competent by Psychiatrists...that person can not make his or her own choices related to medicine. Someone with a strong mental health history may not be considered competent, nor would someone acutely suicidal. I wish you the best. Please keep us updated.

    Mother who withheld medicine guilty of attempted murder

    Apparently it was members of the healthcare team who realized this. Also, people need to take responsibility for themselves and not blame others. While more aggressive followup from health and human services may have prevented loss of life, it does not mean social workers, doctors, nurses, etc. are to blame or even share part of the blame.

    Make up a total lie about the poster above you!

    Christine has an interesting hobby. Some might even call it a talent. Whenever she has to digitally disempact a patient, she saves the stool, takes it home with her and uses it to make scupltures of famous structures! She is continually writing various museums and educational instututions so she can have her work displayed but they've expressed time and again they aren't interested. http://www.supersizedmeals.com/food/images/articles/20091021-12ft_high_Eiffel_Tower_Choc_2.jpg There is an example of her work!

    Interesting. Kathy was actually IN the first talkie. She played Bobo, the angry chimp-woman, and her only spoken words were "OOH OOH" and "GRRR!"

    Erik is no stranger to Star Wars love. Every year for Halloween, he dresses as Princess Leia - complete with gold bikini! You should hear the whistles he receives as he walks down the streets of his neighborhood!

    Pagan or Wiccan nurses?

    Obviously you don't get it. Nevermind. Anyway, everyone, I sincerely apologize for getting this post off-track - it was a quote from my original post that hijacked the thread. Back to the matter at hand! :) You know what always annoyed me, as a person raised Pagan? When I was in middle school/beginning of high school, people jumped on the bandwagon (ESPECIALLY the Wiccan one!) and it irritated me. It probably shouldn't have, but it did.

    Pagan or Wiccan nurses?

    I believe this... "Preach the gospel - if necessary, use words." It's all about the patient. Stop making this about yourself. And don't tell me you're doing this because of saving souls. If that's what you are after, why are you even on this message board? Go out and preach.

    Pagan or Wiccan nurses?

    Y'all can kick me out if you'd like, especially since I didn't read all of the posts! Anyway, I am a Christian but was raised Pagan. I was never officially Wiccan but I read up on it a great deal. I still consider myself a cultural Pagan (kind of like a lot of Jewish friends I have who are 'cultural Jews.') I grew up in an area in which everyone was Catholic or Mormon. I remember everyone saying, "what do you mean your family doesn't go to church?" when asked about it. Then in high school I became a Christian and attended an independent Baptist church...and got labeled a "holy roller." (Even by family members! Awesome!) Great, I went from spooky girl to holy girl... Anyway, I completely understand both sides! I agree with those who say our spiritual beliefs have no real place in our jobs; however, realistically, one's beliefs affect all aspects of life. I don't think anyone of ANY faith (or lack thereof) should preach to others, especially patients. But I also understand that it's sometimes hard to keep certain aspects of your spiritual life from those around you.

    Would you sleep with a doctor?

    No to the pocket protector fetish. Yes to everything else...

    Oh, so because I'm white I can't be discriminated against? If you say so...

    Good for Bristol. It's not going to be easy, but was nursing school easy on anyone? And I am going to keep my mouth shut concerning politics.
