Patient Safety Act will benefit us all, By Beth D. Piknick, May 18, 2018:"I worked as a registered nurse for more than 45 years, first in Boston and then at Cape Cod Hospital. I have lived on the Cape since the early '60s. I have always been very proud of my profession and have spent most of those years advocating for not only my profession but for all patients."

Report: Health care delays for prisoners at Vaughn partly due to staff shortage, May 16, 2018:"Understaffing of both correctional officers and nurses is straining the already-burdened James T. Vaughn Correctional Center near Smyrna, according to an independent review of its health care services. The review, commissioned in the wake of the Feb. 1, 2017 uprising that left one correctional officer dead and two others badly beaten, found that the combination of an "inadequate electronic health record system" and too few nurses and health professionals creates delays in care or missed appointments."

The nurses, two other nurses and two patients have since filed federal lawsuits against the county and other parties they hold responsible for failing to prevent the situation from happening."

Prevalence and Economic Burden of Medication Errors in the NHS England, February 2018, Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality:"Medication errors represent a significant source of preventable patient harm. Prior research has shown that medication errors occur frequently and are associated with a longer hospital stay and increased costs. This report from the Policy Research Unit in Economic Evaluation of Health and Care Interventions synthesizes the evidence regarding the burden of medication errors in the England. The authors estimate that 237 million medication errors occur annually and that 66 million of these errors may be clinically significant. The majority of potentially harmful errors likely occur in the outpatient setting where most medications in the National Health Service are prescribed. Costs associated with errors seem to vary widely. A prior WebM&M commentary described a case in which a medication error led to serious patient harm."

Many Drugs and Many Doctors Lead to Many Mistakes, by Theresa Brown:"I am a home hospice nurse, and when I get new patients after they have been discharged from the hospital, the list of drugs included in their paperwork is always wrong. Some mistakes are minor: The list includes a relatively harmless drug the patient no longer needs or it leaves off a minor dose adjustment. But other mistakes are more serious — the list may include an important prescription the patient never knew to fill or may have the patient on two medications that can be dangerous when taken together." https://www.nytimes.com/2018/03/14/opinion/drugs-prescriptions-errors-tracking.html

Wave of layoffs continues at Ascension St. John (Michigan):"Between 60 to 70 nurses are expected to be laid off on or before March 4, said Brown and Fredericksen, two union leader nurses. The layoffs will result in an increase in nurse-to-patient ratio from one nurse to five patients to one nurse to seven patients, they said. Three nurses who were hired in January for the operating room were laid off Wednesday. "We are losing a lot of ancillary staff. It is already very unsafe for patients and more cuts will not help," Fredericksen said."

Nurse Fired After Staying Home Sick: Time to Change Policies?:"Hospitals should not punish nurses for staying home when they are ill, says a nurse who was fired for calling in sick when she had influenza. She is speaking out because she wants to see punitive policies such as the one at her former hospital changed. Theresa Puckett, PhD, RN, told Medscape Medical News she worked on inpatient psychiatric units at University Hospitals in Richmond Heights, Ohio, until recently. Although she received an influenza vaccine, she became ill with influenza shortly after Christmas. She was sick at home for 2 days with chills, achiness, and generally "feeling miserable," so she went to an urgent care clinic." https://www.medscape.com/viewarticle/892546

‘Forget About the Stigma’: Male Nurses Explain Why Nursing Is a Job of the Future for Men By Claire Cain Miller, Ruth Fremson, Jan. 4, 2018:"Only 13 percent of nurses in the United States are men, but that share has grown steadily since 1960, when the number was 2 percent, according to a working paper published in October by the Washington Center for Equitable Growth. “It’s not a flood, but it’s a change,” said Abigail Wozniak, an economist at the University of Notre Dame, who wrote the paper with Elizabeth Munnich, an economist at the University of Louisville. The biggest drivers, they found, were the changing economy and expanding gender roles."

The big problem is that there's a shortage of nurses who are willing to work in the conditions that hospitals create."

Nurse With The Flu Gets Fired For Calling Out Sick by Dory Jackson (2/12/18):"Theresa Puckett, who was formerly employed at University Hospitals in Cleveland, said she was punished for coming down with the flu. Puckett's absence from work, however, was considered to be in violation with the hospital's attendance policy for fill-in nurses. University Hospitals has a no-fault attendance policy that requires certain absences to be pre-approved, which is a policy the facility claimed is similar to those enforced by other health organizations regionally and nationally. Excused absences include jury duty and doctor's appointments, but it does not cover sick days." http://www.ibtimes.com/nurse-flu-gets-fired-calling-out-sick-report-2652174

Theresa Puckett, a University Hospital PRN (as needed) nurse was told she violated the hospital's attendance policy due to calling out at the end of 2017 and being sent home early on a second shift."

9 Reasons Why Nurse Alex Wubbels Made Me Even Prouder That I Am a Nurse, By Sheena Maireen Saavedra, RN (October 1, 2017):"The thing that bothers me the most, however, is that nobody, not a single soul, not even the supervisors or the other officers in the scene, had lifted a finger to intervene with the handcuffing and the pushing that ensued. They just permitted the situation to escalate like that, and even worse, allowed the nurse to be humiliated and to stay in the heated police car for 20 minutes. Unbelievable."

And nurses have sounded the alarm, letting lawmakers and the rest of Montana know about what they’re enduring, very often with no consequences for their attackers. But when the Legislature considered a bill last winter to increase the penalties for those assaults, Rep. Theresa Manzella of Hamilton questioned whether there really was a problem. She said the nurses hadn’t done enough to make their case, and she wondered why nurses hadn’t provided police reports for the more than 2,000 workers’ comp claims that had been paid in a recent five-year period."

Maybe you care, and maybe you don’t, but one day each of us will hope and pray we have an experienced ER nurse who isn’t overwhelmed and overburdened. I know I will. I want one who can listen to me, focus on me, and has seen patients with my disease process at least a thousand times before I roll through the door.

Brooke Lounsbury, Health Begins At Home:"Many years ago I woke up and realized our mainstream medical model wasn't about prevention. It was about sickness. So, I left mainstream nursing. I have educated myself on the holistic model, taking courses on nutrition and detoxification, I hold a certificate of completion from Optimum Health Institute in San Diego, and recently completed "Nutrition and Exercise Works" certification.I am also a member of the AHNA- American Holistic Nurse Association."

The Difference Between Regional And National Accreditation:"It is very important that you understand the accreditation of the college, university or trade school that you are looking at attending. A colleges accreditation can you tell you a lot about the college, their auditing process, and what they had to go through to get their accreditation and what they have to do in order to keep their accreditation in good standing."

EmbracingCivility.com:"When two North Carolina nurses, Linda Leekley and Stacey Turnure met, they knew right away they had several things in common. They were both passionate about nursing, had a knack for writing and were driven to inspire others to embrace lifelong learning. They later discovered they had something else in common—something they were not talking about. They had both suffered the ill effects of incivility in the healthcare workplace. Why weren't they talking about it? Because no one talks about it. It's healthcare's dirty little secret. No one wants to admit that a shameful culture of incivility infects most healthcare workplaces."
