Daughter reported to head doctor that nursing home staff didn't wash hands; worried since they care for c diff patient. Now staff wont cooperate w/ her?

Hand washing: Everyone should be washing hands before and after touching a patient, irrespective of the fact that they may have put on gloves. Using soap is mandatory when washing hands. This is true for staff and visitors. A friendly method of persuasion and education works best. ...Read more

Do senior home residents get evacuated during tornado warning?

Do senior home residents get evacuated during tornado warning?

Check SOP: I think you would need to check with the specific facility. Each should have a standardized operating procedure for emergencies (to include environmental emergencies). Depending on situation, it may be safer in some situations to maintain refuge within the facility (in place) as opposed to evacuating. My guess is that a lot would go into making this type of decision. ...Read more

I am an lpn with 33 years of nursing experience. Family relocating. Want city with highest per hour pay?

Internet question: I also have an mba in addition to an md and i would suggest looking for the city with the highest ratio of pay to cost of living. You might get paid 1.5x in new york but find you cost of living 2.5x so you would actually be making a big mistake. That information should be available on the internet. ...Read more

My mom needs a specialist not on her insurance. Are doctors reluctant to negotiate fees with cash patients?

My mom needs a specialist not on her insurance. Are doctors reluctant to negotiate fees with cash patients?

Doctors will often: negotiate w/cash patients. The main thing is to get your mom seen by the proper doc. Please don't hesitate to search. If the person at the front desk won't help, drop in and have a chat. Some folks in doc offices are much better to deal w/than others. Be kind and patient and hopefully you will succeed. Peace and good health. ...Read more

Dob: mar, 27, 2013, 28weeks preemie , they are sending her home after her car seat test she's 3lbs 14oz. I don't think she's ready to go home ...Is she?

Varies: Premi's should meet a minimum criteria for going home: gaining weight every day on feeds. Able to keep a normal body temperature in a crib. Not have need for a hospital based treatment modality or close observation. My routine is not to send home under 4.5 lb. The local neonatologist does around 4-4.5 lb. I am unaware of what your government run system considers appropriate standards. ...Read more

Can I be qualify for medical, im 26 fulltime community college student. No job r income. I live w/ & get help from my low income parents. Live in cali?

Eligibility : There are many people who qualify for medical, but have no idea how to apply. I suggest starting with contacting a federally qualified health center (it'll take some google work to find one in your area). These health centers have financial counselors and other staff to determine your exact eligibility for medical and help you get registered and set up with a primary care doc. Good luck! ...Read more

School nurse needs advise on excusing girls from swimming during menses when student won't use tampons. Big pushback from PE staff.

School nurse needs advise on excusing girls from swimming during menses when student won't use tampons.  Big pushback from PE staff.

Oh my.....: Teaching staff absolutely cannot dictate a girl's choice in this matter. Humiliating a girl into wearing a tampon or bleeding everywhere is unacceptable. To deter abuse of the privilege by students, a good compromise may be not an excuse from PE, just from swimming. They can dress out in shorts/tee and sit poolside if needed to attend class.Forcible use of tampons is assault. Humiliation is abuse ...Read more
