  1. Provider: "Where is your husband woman??" Me: "Buried in the backyard after muttering the words, listen to me woman I am your husband" :sarcastic:
  2. I am usually all for looking at the other side of things, in fact I will argue for the other side even if it's not my personal belief on it. However, I can't get on board with this because it is now directly affecting patient care based on our own moral compass. You choose to pick a profession where you take care of patients, all patients from a variety of backgrounds and cultures. The patient is the ones who's rights gets priority; they are after all who you are there for. Where does it end?? I don't agree with addiction so I refuse to Narcan the patient and they just die?? Or maybe I feel overweight people brought it on themselves so I won't be taking care of them either?? Teenage mother, unwed mother, nurse doesn't agree and just doesn't provide care?? The list can go on and on. We don't base our patient care off of our own moral compass. If you want to be able to pick and choose patients and procedures that go along with your own personal cultural beliefs then you find a private practice that follows your beliefs or you find a different profession.

    I see quite alot of tall nurses

    I have never seen them. Not in the ER's anyway with our stretchers in any of the hospitals I have worked at. Honestly I don't even know why I care about tall people with all they put me through. :p

    I really don't understand why we can't figure this problem out. I don't see them as often now, but as a kid our dining room tables had leaf we could insert in the middle to make it longer. We should have beds that can do this with like an insert mattress or something along those lines to extend it.

    I would be afraid of retaliation. I might have also just worked too much and then watched the Slender Man documentary and just had a really trippy dream that I projected as a real event. Probably that's more likely. :p :p I probably just made that up too!

    I get bullied by the tall people at work. They think it's funny to put the ceiling IV polls on the shortest setting so I can't reach it. After watching me struggle a bit they will come in laughing and pat me on the head saying "now now little one" as they lower it back. I now have a fear of giants. I can't even read my kid Jack and the Beanstalk anymore.

    We often had "afew" tall people. My Dad is 6'3", I am "alittle" over 5 foot. One time I asked my patient how tall she was, she said "4 foot 12". So I said "5 feet?" She said "no 4 foot 12" she paused for a minute and it clicked. I told her "congratulations, you can now tell everyone you're officially 5 foot"

    World Turned upside down

    I immediately think of songs with like 85% of the sentences I hear a day. LOL I was hoping I was not alone. OP I would be willing to bet a virtual beer that he will be wanting you back again when he sees how you being a nurse can benefit him. My ex-husband was NOT ok with me going back to school. He wanted me to be a stay at home mom. When he saw he couldn't stop me he knew he was the financial provider and used that saying he would not help at all nor would he help with the kids or childcare. So I got student loans and proceeded. So when he saw finances wouldn't stop me he then tried to dictate what field of nursing I would go into. He wanted me in peds or baby, somewhere with not a lot of males. He forbid ER which is where I wanted to be the most. So when he saw he was losing the battle he didn't think things were gonna work anymore and tried to sabotage the last semester of nursing school. By that time I was taking care of 4 kids. 3 older sons and a toddler daughter. I had spent a couple years doing pre reqs. We had moved to another state where I had to sit on a wait list for 3 years, finally got my number called and was in the program. I had been working on this for 7 years. Get to the first week of my last semester and my brother dies. My ex-husband was TERRIBLE and then tried to seize the opportunity to have me drop out to deal with his death. All it did was give me motivation to how close to my freedom I was. When he finally saw nothing was going to work and I was going to graduate and then I passed my boards and landed a job within a week of graduating he saw he lost the battle. So all of a sudden he wanted to be a nice supportive husband and realized how good my income would be with his. Within 6 months of graduating I was FREE and a year after graduating my divorce was final. Never have I looked back. I don't know your man. But I do know that from the little bit you described it doesn't seem like he values you at all and that's just not worth your time nor your energy. You have way too much good coming your way and as they say "aint nobody got time for that"

    Am I the only person that started singing Fresh Prince of Bel Air in their head to the title?? Anyway. lol OP; Count this as a blessing. Sounds like he knows you're about to become a lot more independent and not dependent on him. You're almost done with school, you don't let ANYTHING get in the way of that. Nothing. Focus on that and now this dude. People have offered you a place to crash, take advantage of that. You're about to venture into a new chapter in your life and it sounds like this person should be left in the past.

    The Medical Aspect of Execution

    Exactly, I mean sure some people are going to have strong feelings and opinions. But majority of the posts in this thread have kept personal feelings out of it and focused on the topic at hand and questions asked. I have found it very informative. I can respect it's a passionate and touchy topic. But we are talking about medications used and the mishaps that happen and opinions on best way to solve these issues with the current facts at play which is public execution exists as or now.

    The Medical Aspect of Execution

    Why is that? What are you even talking about? I have found this to be a pretty good discussion on sticking to the facts and questions asked.

    The Medical Aspect of Execution

    I read something quick today and a few things that made me read again: Williams "Morbid obesity makes it likely that either the IV line cannot be placed or that it will be placed in error, thus causing substantial damage (like a collapsed lung)," his attorneys wrote in an earlier court filing asking the judge to block the execution. Wait WHAT??? The IV placement is going to be difficult resulting in a collapsed lung????? Anyway it said for the sedative they were getting a "megadose of midazolam" I guess I never realized they used Versed for lethal injections but upon reading this apparently they do often. It looked like in Ohio they used Versed and Dilaudid in 2014 and that didn't end up going well. Which I imagine it wouldn't. It looks like it took an awful long time for DOD to occur with a lot of struggling. I would imagine so with this duo. It's what I was worried about earlier. :| :|
