    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.

    If I was on that exact flight, and I would have seen the incident itself, I would inform the 'flight attendant' that I would happily join those escorted off in order to not fly with their shit airlines again. Thank you very much. I used to fly a lot before the Mexican beer virus, and I have not seen many incidents, because generally staff seem to be very good at their job. Maybe it's the airlines I fly ? I don't know, the only real bad experience I had was with an Indian airline that is now bankrupt. Thank God. Got me stranded with no backup at all, in the wrong place... I do know that the captain of a plane has authority, real authority, so yes you can have some sort of an argument but since it's a small aluminum tube, safety is taken serious and action is taken much sooner than other places. This however just makes me want to cry. WTF WHY ? IMHO this is a fireable event for the flight attendant. It's a child, out of all people, you definitely cannot fault him for this kind of response. #byebye

    If you throw a poison on something living and there's a small chance of developing a resistance against it, doing it more will increase the chance of that happening. That is evolution, I believe.... Simplified of course. I will believe the vaccines work against worse effects in most people to some degree, if we want to save people, shouldn't we just vaccinate the weak? (Leave natural immunity to the rest ?)

    Technically, wearing a raincoat will only increase the risk to others in regards to getting wet. If you wear absorbent clothing the chance for splattering water is lower than if you wear something waterproof... Just saying. Maybe there's a parallel.

    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

    Anyone who needs people that think outside of the box, people who can think for themselves, might consider it ? I saw a curve somewhere that among the non-vaccinated you find a higher percentage of very highly educated people, as well as many fully uneducated. Whereas the highest percentage of vaccinated was in the group of people with a bachelor, above that % declined again.

    I have not seen anything of it either... However, through all sorts of think tanks, company meetings, conferences and other things, large companies have contact with each other and government. You're right that there is a sort of build up on this and of course the media is also involved. It's not too shady either, that it happens in this way, it's quite natural and to be expected. Should it happen, that's a different question. It is social media in a way but at a non-public level. It is however sort of decentralised and organic... There is not a single person that is making the decision, it is the case that more people are nudged a certain way and as soon as one crosses, the rest follow (normal distribution curve).

    For some reason all these things that are designed to make us safer always make me feel less safe. Maybe that is because I do not fear life itself but I fear what masses of people could do with it, acting through governments.

    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.
