  1. USAF, :oops: :roll: Perhaps too many toys and too little education is the problem? You think? MLAR WPM
  3. Thanks USAF, For making us stop, if only for a moment and try to comprehend what those two mothers are going through. It truly is a deeply personal and private matter. I abhor the people who use the Schiavo case as their personal soapbox to make themselves feel better or to "make a point" I hope that Ms. Schiavo dies peacefully and without pain and that everyone connected to this case go on with their lives and stop the "dog and pony show". I have watched many people die and perhaps did nothing but hold a loved ones hand or give them a shoulder to lean on, but I never felt that I neede
  4. Thanks to all who voted in this poll. As I look at the numbers of other polls, ours was on par with the rest of the US. Thanks Richard B. for your post giving people a template for creating a document that would reflect our wishes should we be unable to decide for ourselves. Please everyone, take a few minutes and sit down and talk to your loved ones and write down your wishes. Make copies and have the document notarized and maybe even do it in the presence of an attorney. Have your trusted loved one sign and agree to abide by it. Only in this way will your wishes be known and foll
  5. :oops: :oops: When George Bush was governor of Texas, he signed into law a complete opposite of what he know espouses. He gave hospitals in Texas the right to withhold food and water, over the objections of the family, in cases where the ethics committee of the hospital decided that it was not in the best interest of the patient. That law is on the books today.. A day when our president says he will sign any legislation that demands the reinsertion of this feeding tube.. If that is not voter pandering, I don't know what is.. What's it going to be prez?? Do Doctors have the knowledge to mak
  6. Please take this poll asap Thanks WPM
  7. USAF, Exellcent job.. I am not sure why this jug was even in this truck unprotected. It was indeed Organophosphates.. We treated this guy with 15 mg Atropine in the ED and finally the spell was broken..

  9. Here we go You are called to a UPS station for a man passed out.. When you arrive you observe a male approximately 25 lying supine next to his UPS Truck. He is awake but extremely lethargic and very slow to respond to questions. You note a distinct odor of chemicals coming both from the patient's skin and from the back of the truck. You send your partner to investigate the truck and he returns to tell you he has found a 5 gallon jug of chemicals broken in the back of the truck and it appears that the driver had tried to wipe the spill up with paper towels. Your are unable to ID t

  11. :roll: :roll: I'm sorry, but I do not believe anyone who says they have never been a racist or made any racist remark. I find that statement disingenious at best. All of us at one time or another have uttered phrases that you would not like to have repeated. I know that I have and if you are honest in your assessment, you will admit the same. I do not think that anyone wants to be regarded as having racist views expect for extremists. We would all like to think that we are above the fray, but think about the last time that you took care of a welfare patient or when you were called a n
