Since I couldn’t enjoy D.C. Cherry blossom festival, I found my own in Lake Tahoe

Had the best weekend getaway to Lake Tahoe! How so very breathtaking!

It’s ok you know,
to be carried now and then,
strength too needs a rest.

I’m just like,

and my friends with normal jobs are like,

True story haha

For all of the most important things, the timing always sucks. Waiting for a good time to quit your job? The stars will never align and the traffic lights of life will never all be green at the same time. The universe doesn’t conspire against you, but it doesn’t go out of its way to line up the pins either. Conditions are never perfect. “Someday” is a disease that will take your dreams to the grave with you. Pro and con lists are just as bad. If it’s important to you and you want to do it “eventually,” just do it and correct course along the way.

SPEED NURSING: Things Nurses Could do with Safer Staff Ratios

January 3, 2013

IdleThoughts from an idealist.


1. Catch subtle symptoms before they progress to an RRT or Cardiac Arrest
2. Be  able to spend more time with patients, so they don’t feel neglected, and heck; maybe even bring up the scores on the patient satisfaction surveys
3. Answer call bells promptly
4. Be able to round on patients a lot more, potentially preventing more patients from falling.
5. Be able to pee more frequently than once a shift (if that)
6. Be able to eat on breaks at leisure, and not suffer reflux from shoveling food down so fast just to get back out on the floor
7. Be marginally more friendly, from lack of stress, or time to actually socialize a little with the people you spend many of your waking hours with.
8.  Maybe help out other nurses when they have one difficult patient, rather than numerous patients in a district of insanity
9. Have a charge nurse without patients of their own, so they can assist in districts that really need it.
10. Have a less sore back from the increased and arduous work, and maybe get home at a decent time
10.5 Interpret the not-so-obvious lab values, radiology, and rather than “speed nursing,” spend more time utilizing the critical thinking process  and maybe save a life

….list is endless…..

Great list!
