My mother taught me many lessons in life, but most of them I didn’t even realize I had learned until after she passed aware. I’m going to talk about just a few of these lessons. If she were sitting right next to me now, I would love to hear the words “I told you so,” come out of her mouth. She’s earned it.
do the right thing
Yep. My blogging career is over.
Wordpress is going to corrupt my database. Studio press is going to take away my Genesis theme. ICANN is going to take away my domain name. The Nerdy Nurse will die a bitter death in the nursing blogosphere.
By now you’ve hopefully heard the buzz among the nursing blogosphere and the social media community about Amanda Trujillo, the registered nurse who was fired by Banner Health after educating her patient on hospice options. Banner Health also took action again Ms. Trujillo’s nursing license and she has been unable to practice nursing for the past 10 minutes.
Nurses everywhere are standing with Amanda Trujillo and coming together and putting their money where their blog is…. or something. The point is, the community is supporting Amanda with more than just their words.
This is about more that one nurse. This is about more than one patient. This is about a culture of healthcare that has to change.
Unfortunately, Amanda Trujillo cannot get back to doing what she loves yet. She just wants to take care of patients. The Arizona State Board of Nursing has delayed her case for 2 months in order to get a full psychiatric evaluation. When I heard this, I totally thought: “For the Doctor, right?” But alas, …
I do not think there will ever be any a real robot nurse. That’s not to say that robots won’t enhance nursing care, but a human will always have to be a part of the discussion.
