  3. CBS is broadcasting the Master's in two weeks at the Augusta National Golf Club. Now president Martha Burke is calling attention to this issue by stating that American women are fighting for our nation, but still not permitted membership in this club.

    My daughter's name is Genevieve. She is almost twenty, and I love her name! Hannah is a gorgeous name too, as is Serenity.

    Ditto. The last nursing home I worked in cycled scabies every two months or so. The DON and ADON were in denial. Some staff had scars from scratching and some took them home to their children. The residents were treated with some topical creme, showered 12 hours later and treated again. I couldn't wait to get outta there!

    Time to check in

    KarenG and all, I am in the same circumstances. Two off to college and one at home, and I am renting an apartment from a nice couple who are giving me a five month lease until the new school year, when I hopefully will place my last child in a new school district. Got hired full time by a hospice and palliative care company and I am starting a new life. Spent the day going through junk shops looking for a kitchen table- and picking up all my pots and pans and such. As much as I am sad to leave the family home, I could not keep it up. Spent the last three years with emergency low well water and in Nov, the septic tank collapsed. I couldn't cut the grass either. That is all I would be doing, and after nursing all day-geez, that's all I can think about these days. Wish me luck allnurses sibs! Good luck to you too Karen!

We have 2 nursing homes that are owned by our hospital and we get nurses calling all the time about their residents. Then we all get the home health care nurses calling about their patients. Personally, I will be glad to say: "Sorry, I can't release any information to you." Maybe they will stop calling so much.... Wouldn't these nurses be protected by a "need to know"? As a hospice nurse, I often need to call an RN to get report when a patient is discharged to the home, especially if there is very littly H&P from the hospitalization in my admission packet. Often these people have days or hours to live and it is imperative to get the information in a timely manner.
