At any rate, Huggies Brazil is revolutionizing social media for babies by having a device that clips on to the front of an infants diaper and sends a tweet when they pee. Now the whole world can know how often your little one goes to the potty, and since you’re too busy on social media to actually check and see if your child is wet, you can get a notification on your phone. Oh, and any of your followers… or maybe your babies followers…. will get a notification as well.

Hi NerdyNurse Readers! Please allow me to introduce myself as Lance Baily, founder of the free simulation resource website HealthySimulation.com, and The Gathering of Healthcare Simulation Technology Specialists non-profit organization at SimGHOSTS.Org. As you may know, healthcare simulation technology continues to grow into nursing schools and medical centers around the world. For these fully immersive scenarios, realistic full-bodied manikins are controlled behind a two-way mirrors which allow technicians to pre-program or change vital signs “on the fly”. Also behind this mirror is a clinical educator who speaks as the voice of the patient while learners begin to assess the scene and take actions. The entire event is usually being digitally recorded and displayed to another debrief room, which can also show performance analysis indicators. After the scenario concludes, the educator and learner return to the debrief and review the footage, discussing the event in a constructive non-personal way. As you can imagine, between manikin robots, camera hardware, endless microphones, analysis software, server storage racks, and miles of cable – the technology can become overwhelming quite quickly.
The Canon PowerShot SX260 is a digital camera that has 20x zoom, a twenty-five millimeter wide lens and the capacity to hold 1080p Full-HD Video. It supports a wide variety of memory cards, such as SDHC Memory Card, SDXC Memory Card, and SD Memory Card. The battery life (with taking photos and photo review) is approximately five hours.

Since it does not weigh much and is rather small, it can easily be slipped into a pocket or purse.

Nursing is very rewarding to most of us, but it’s good fun to laugh at a few nursing related jokes that are on the cynical side.
Besides, who there isn’t near enough nurse humor on the internet and there certainly aren’t enough funny nurse videos.
Recently I posted about the pros and cons working as a salaried nurse verses hourly. Kevin Ross, of Innovative Nurse, has responded in a youtube video but has shifted the focus of the discussion to the wages of nurses in general. So let’s continue the conversation.
Kevin is a nurse consultant and was surprised after a discussion with another nurse hen he learned what the average pay for nurses is currently. And let me be completely honest when I say that I think nurses are reimburses well, compared to many other jobs I’ve done, but there is always room for improvement.
