What Attracted You To The Field of Nursing?
Work At Home Opportunities
November 15, 2000: Medication Administration In Nursing Homes:"You asked about other states' laws, regulations, or policies permitting people who are not licensed as registered or practical nurses to give medicines to nursing home residents. This is an update of OLR Report 2000-R-0123, which describes nine states' (Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Maryland, Minnesota, Nebraska, Rhode Island, South Dakota, and Texas) rules."
November 11, 2000: Patient safety being left behind:"An overworked nurse infuses the wrong type of blood into a patient. An experienced pharmacist puts the wrong drug in a child's medicine bottle. A less-experienced surgeon blows a heart procedure that is performed more frequently — and flawlessly — down the street.
All the patients die, victims of medical errors. Up to 98,000 such deaths a year — perhaps the nation's most disturbing health care statistic — have health officials scrambling to find fixes. They are spurred by an Institute of Medicine report last November that named errors made by doctors, nurses and hospital workers the USA's eighth leading killer."
October 9th, 2000: Colorado: Denver: Rural communities feel sting of nursing shortage:"Nurse Lynn Kier prays none of the other three nurses at Haxtun Hospital's nursing home call in sick. There is little backup for the 12-hour shifts, especially when roads are bad in winter.
"It's nerve-racking," she said. "If anyone called in during a snow storm, we'd be stuck. No one could get out here fast enough."
A nationwide shortage of nurses is compounded in rural areas such as Haxtun, a prairie town of about 1,100 about 140 miles northeast of Denver. Still, they try, advertising several times for help in a nursing journal."
October 2, 2000: Arkansas: UCA Students Struggle Against Nursing Shortage:"Hospitals across Arkansas and the nation continue to struggle with a nursing shortage. Even student nurses now take on the role of recruiters. Nursing students from the University of Central Arkansas at Conway are working to make a difference.
Since 1995, there has been a 21 percent drop in the graduation rate at nursing schools across the state. Recruitment efforts are at an all-time high and nursing students are the newest recruitment tools."
September 15, 2000: Your Health: Medical errors linked to nurses:"Almost one year ago, the Institute of Medicine released a report showing that up to 98,000 patients die in hospitals every year due to medical errors. This week, a major newspaper reported that nursing mistakes alone are responsible for thousands of injuries and deaths. The investigation by the Chicago Tribune found that poorly trained or overworked nurses were responsible for the deaths of 1,700 patients and injuries to 9,548 since 1995. The paper said cuts in hospital staffs had led to registered nurses working longer hours and to under-trained nurses being used more often.
September 10, 2000: Nursing mistakes cause thousands of deaths, probe finds:"More than 1,700 patients have died and 9,548 have been injured since 1995 due to poorly trained or overwhelmed nurses across the country, the Chicago Tribune reported. The report in Sunday's editions of the Tribune places the blame on cuts in hospital staffs resulting in overworked registered nurses and the use of undertrained nurses. CNN's Rhonda Rowland reports on the study of hospital deaths by the Chicago Tribune
September 7, 2000: Potentially fatal germs under fingernails of hospital personnel should be 'eradicated,' study says:"Hospitals with elevated rates of infections and death, especially among newborn babies, should be examined for "potential reservoirs" of bacteria, including under the fingernails of nurses and other medical personnel. In a study reported in the September 7 issue of The New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM), researchers also said bacterial conditions such as ear-skin inflammations and fungal nail infections of health care workers "should be detected and eradicated" to reduce sickness and deaths among hospital patients."
August 25, 2000: Hospitals work to solve emergency room crisis:"To help alleviate clogged emergency rooms and open precious bed space, local health officials are working to keep the intoxicated and the mentally ill out of emergency facilities when medical attention is unnecessary. The officials are trying to find immediate solutions to free up more beds and medical resources to combat a valley-wide emergency room crisis that is jeopardizing patient care and contributing to slower ambulance response times.
