T’was the week before Christmas
& all through the floor,
The Lasix was filling the foley’s galore.
Stockings were worn, to prevent emboli,
They came in two sizes: knee, and thigh-high.
T’was the week before Christmas
If you work in the medical profession then you have likely had to work your share of holidays.
Many nurses, paramedics, doctors, and other members of the healthcare team choose to make the best of this time and have quirky medical fun.
The following are some excellent examples of the weird sense of humor that many of use in the healthcare environment share.
I present to you Medical Glove Christmas Trees:
A recent Pricegrabber survey reports 82 percent of online shoppers will use shopping apps to save on holiday gifts this year. With so many apps to choose from, it’s difficult to distinguish which ones will save you money or just take up memory. As you start to plan your holiday shopping strategy, download these recommended mobile apps that will make your life much easier and purchases much cheaper.
I think that not allowing your child to believe in Santa takes something away from the magic of childhood. It’s not that I feel you need to promote fictional present-givers to inspire good behavior in your children, but I appreciate the symbolism of goodness, hope, and faith in mankind that Santa Claus represents. I don’t want to sensationalize Santa Claus, or even really promote him, but if Ty believes, I won’t be the one to smash his dreams.
“Alas! how dreary would be the world if there were no Santa Claus!”
Black Friday is sort of like living in gated community. You love it or you hate it. You either embrace it for it’s value, take advantage of all the benefits, and utilize your social skills to make the best of the situation, or your get ran over by a cart (shopping or golf).
But if you like to live a little on the edge, and don’t mind doing a little cart dodging, you might find that Black Friday shopping, just like POA living, has far more rewards than benefits. Case in point: The Sites you will see and the stories you wi have to tell.
GIANTmicrobes take microscopic, sometimes scary bacteria and body parts and blow them up into a larger than GIANT versions of thier scientific selves. They’re a fun learning aid and cute way to incorproate a little more scient into your life.
As a nurse I spend a large amount of my time attempting to ward off these nasty little boogers, but when you make the cute and cuddly, they become downright charming. I really like the idea of using these in children’s hospitals to teach immune compromised children about their illnesses. Sick kids have a hard enough road to face without fearing what their bodies are facing. The empowerment that having their very own pet germs (GIANTmicrobes) would surely be motivational to any child or adult battling illness.
Creative has a couple of Vado HD pocket cam bundles on sale for $30 shipped right to your front door. This is an awesome deal, especially considering a replacement battery can or case alone can retail for $30. With the purse strings tight, you can still delight this holiday season with an cool gift that anyone of any age will will. (My toddler LOVES playing with the flip cam, and at this price, I won’t be devastated if he breaks it!) Of course, you could just order this for yourself if you want to start Vlogging, or become the next youtube sensation… just saying. These bundles include an HD pocket camera, cases, chargers, and more.
If there is a nurse in your life who you feel could use a push in the right financial direction, this would be a thoughtful and practical Christmas gift. Honestly, even if you don’t think they need a push in the right direction (because for some strange reason non-nurses seem to think that nurses are loaded…) this is still an excellent and practical tool to promote personal wealth.
I am fairly sure that this may very well be this year’s hot Christmas item. It’s like the Snuggie to the next level. For a mere $29.99 (plus shipping, handling, and who-knows-whatever-other-fees-or-clubs they will charge your credit card) you can own these adult pajamas (complete with a fly zipper and a butt-flap) and not have to be inconvenienced by any of those other foolish methods of keeping warm like blankets, turning up the heat, or wearing regular clothes. You can’t be bothered to do any of those obviously expensive or boring traditional methods.
