    Yep. Unfortunately it has infested nearly all hospitals in the US since all of them, even the "private" ones, chase after those mighty medicare dollars. The folks in IHS probably have it the worst though, seconded by the V.A.

    I have to wonder just how many people who are complaining that Trump may end up the GOP nominee in 2024 are doing anything at all to prevent it? We're pretty good at circle-jerking ourselves but when it comes to activism we haven't had a good idea since the RP moneybombs. Even flying around in a blimp was more productive. Just sayin.

    I was just talking about this with a friend today. Same exact thing, of all the missing children they pick a 20-something year old girl to talk about. Don't get me wrong, I hope she is found and alive. I also hope she has better judgement in men in the future as to not go on a cross-country trip with an abusive boyfriend in a parcel delivery van.

    I think it's very telling that hospitals are afraid to hand people termination letters, preferring instead to let employees leave, or even bully them into leaving, on their own volition. It's almost as if they're worried that in the future when/if the data clearly shows that having unvaccinated nurses was no more a risk to their workplace than vaccinated nurses, they're going to be inundated with wrongful-termination lawsuits. Personally if I were on a jury in a civil case like that, they'd be owning the hospital when the judge slaps his gavel down.

    Something rubs me the wrong way about religious exemptions: I would not put myself in a position where I appeal to someone else to have the final say on whether my relationship with God is sincere or not. If I were going to challenge this, I would sue not as an employee, but as a patient. They are requiring a medical procedure, that makes me a patient. That's the way I see it, though, and the courts might not agree. Still, it would make for some interesting arguments during the case.

    Supposedly, you're supposed to get involved early enough so that the GOP can't put a d-bag RINO as their candidate. It takes a lot of effort. Often it is fruitless. But it seems to me to be neither more nor less effective as pontificating on an internet forum for a decade or more. The only reason I haven't jumped on the "haha-look-at-the-stupid-voters-thinking-that'll-change-anything" bandwagon, is because I have even less faith in people to go the same route our forefathers went, when it was no longer possible to change things through petitioning.

    I had about 10 days straight of fever on/off, body aches didn't really subside until a few days after the fever stopped. Lost about 13 pounds during that time. As far as I can tell I'm not suffering any long-term effects. Supposedly hair-loss is associated but my hair was already falling out before then so it isn't like I'd know the difference. :p

    First off, I'd buy a pulse oximeter for your household. You can get them for about $20. Even the cheap ones are about as accurate as the ones we use in the hospital. My respiratory therapy friends would sneer at me for dumbing it down, but in simplest terms it tells you how oxygenated your blood is. There's way more to it than that, but all you really need to know is that it helps with monitoring. Stick it on a finger, and it displays a percentage and a heart rate. Check it when you are in good health so you know what your baseline is. Roughly 96-100% for normal healthy adults. Before I drove to the ED, mine had dropped to 91% so I knew something was going on and that's when I decided I probably at least needed a chest xray. If you have lung disease like COPD your baseline might be as low as 89%, and that would be 'your' 'normal'. If you get hit with COVID, keep an eye out for drops. If you are feeling short of breath and the numbers aren't showing what is "normal" for you, that's when you need to let your doctor know. It's a really easy-to-use device that can, at least somewhat, help you figure out whether it's anxiety, or something more serious. Frankly if I hadn't had one at home, I would have probably brushed off feeling short of breath as standard symptoms. But the numbers tell the rest of the story. You don't want to be showing up to the hospital to find out that you're satting 70% or worse, when you'd be 95% on a good day, so I suggest getting one for personal use so you can keep track of it before it gets anywhere near that point. Unfortunately one of the problems we had was that people wouldn't show up UNTIL they were that low, but of course they had no way of knowing. It's worth the $20. Kids tend to maintain, maintain, maintain and crash their oxygen saturation, so it's not quite as useful on them, but thankfully kids tend to do better with COVID (or at least they were when I was working), so there's that. As far as medications go, it's not really a nurse's scope of practice to recommend those, so I'm not going to suggest Ivermectin, especially for off-label use. I'm not against those meds by any means, but you really need to get that kind of information from a doctor. I didn't go to med school and really don't know enough about it. Then again finding a doctor in the USA who is genuinely interested in alternative treatments like Ivermectin is not exactly easy. I will mention some of the non-prescription stuff I was taking based on early protocols, which has probably changed since I left (I was using the protocols bedside doctors practically scribbled on a kleenex in the first few weeks, when they were having to figure all this stuff out through networking, before they started the more "approved" protocols).

    I told people the symptoms I was seeing in the ED. I thought perhaps those of us on the forums that don't spend our time running down rabbit holes until we come out the other side only to start all over again, would like to know what they might expect if they get sick. If I didn't care about y'all at least a little bit, I wouldn't have wasted my time. Although, you personally? I am starting to not really care about. I know you don't care that I don't care. I'm tired of reading your s*^# post F.U.D. nonsense, and I'm tired of you acting like you are some sage who has precognition of every single step the elites have planned out, and every-fking-body-else is "being played." I haven't worked as a nurse since last Thanksgiving. I'm glad I quit, because it did allow me to see what was happening outside of my ED world-view. That said, people are still getting sick, and early treatment to avoid hospitalization is worth discussing.

    Yep. And if your doctor won't prescribe an antibiotic, call around until you find one who will. When I was first diagnosed with COVID last year I immediately called my primary doctor and asked for a 'just in case' prescription for antibiotics, in case it got worse. Well, she refused. Lo and behold over the weekend, when her office was closed, I worsened. Went to the ER for a chest xray and sure enough it showed mild bilateral pneumonia. I was given 1 round of IV antibiotics in the ED and a script for azithromax. I know a lot of doctors are reluctant to prescribe antibiotics too soon but early treatment really was key, I think, in preventing me from being hospitalized.

    This "woman", if she is even charged, will be released by some liberal DA because it suits their agenda. Compare that with the incarcerated folks from Jan 6 who keep getting dragged back out in show trials whenever the government feels a need to make an example of someone. I'm so sick of the hypocrisy.

    It does sound terrible when you put it that way. But in all the years I've been debating open borders here on RPF, I've never once come across anyone who has suggested a viable solution on how exactly you propose to preserve (or at this point, restore) liberty, if people whose ideals are completely foreign to it, are being imported at a faster rate than we can win them over. I mean, yeah, it feels good after 5 years when you finally convince your own mom to go to a freedom convention with you. What are you going to do about the millions of others in the mean time? It's like playing a football game and you guys are saying, "all we need to do is score a touch down, don't worry about the fact that the other team is waving spectators down onto the field to block it." And as of late, the states are doing a better job of defending the border than the feds. I wonder why the feds aren't interested in stemming the flow of illegal immigration. It's almost like they know it gives them power or something.

    "They will bring with them the principles of the governments they leave, imbibed in their early youth; or if able to throw them off, it will be in exchange for an unbounded licentiousness, passing as is usual, from one extreme to another. It would be a miracle were they to stop precisely at the point of temperate liberty. Their principles with their language, they will transmit to their children. In proportion to their numbers, they will share with us in the legislation. They will infuse into it their spirit, warp and bias its direction, and render it a heterogeneous, incoherent, distracted mass." -T.J.

    If government goes to a company and says, "We will give you x amount of dollars if you have x percent of your workforce vaccinated" that is NOT a private company making a private decision. It sounds very benign to say that hospitals are doing this because they "want to make the workplace safer." What is happening in reality is that they are being threatened with loss of funding they are using to pay agency staff 3-4x what the hospital itself has determined to be a reasonable wage for its own employees. The hospitals were already safe with precautionary measures (masks, gowns, negative pressure isolation rooms) that suddenly became sub-standard as soon as a vaccine was released. Government has come in and completely distorted things beyond recognition. Minus intervention by government, many of these people would still be working. Therefore, you cannot simply say that this is A-OK, nothing to see here. I'm not trying to be snarky either, but you COMPLETELY disregard the cause/effect relationship between government intervention in the "private" sector and people losing their jobs. Now, I don't know, if the answer is more government. I do know that liberty isn't exactly winning, so it's probably damned-if-you-do, damned-if--you-don't at this point. I tend to make allowance for government to undo previous government actions. More laws are probably not the answer, but I'm not going to frown on repeals, or laws that negate the effectiveness of misguided, damaging laws. But I digress.

    Were you for or against the 2008 bailouts? Just asking because you say this is "clear cut" but there have been many instances where government has intervened in "private" markets, and still very much continues to do so. So if a major bank that acted irresponsibly got bailed out, later ends up buying out a community bank that did not engage in risky lending practices, and tried to act in good faith, do you just clap the dust off your hands and say, "the free market works!" ? And likewise, if a "private" hospital is reimbursed by government to pay exorbitant wages to agency staff, because they drove off too many of their former employees with these stupid mandates, do you say, "See! The free market works!" ? What if government tells those hospitals that they must have x% of staff vaccinated to receive the aforementioned reimbursement? If a hospital needs staff, they're going to take the money. What if they turn right around and buy out a smaller hospital that did not require mandates because they knew staff would leave and patient care would suffer? (there is just one hospital in my area that has not yet required mandates, but it is only a matter of time before that hospital is bought out, likely by Atrium Health) Just more "Free market"? The cream rising to the top?
