  1. Just been busy with living. All is good. .......
  2. Two Newfies, Bob and Eli, were adrift in a lifeboat. While rummaging through the boat's provisions, Bob stumbled across an old lamp. He rubbed the lamp vigorously and a genie came forth. This genie,however, stated that he could only deliver one wish, not the standard three. Bob immediately blurted out, "Turn the entire ocean into Molson Canadian beer." The genie clapped his hands with a deafening crash, and immediately the sea turned into beer and the genie vanished. Only the gentle lapping of beer on the hull broke the stillness as the two men considered their circumstances. Eli looked disgustedly at Bob whose wish had been granted. After a long, tension-filled moment Eli said, "Nice going Bob! ...Now we're going to have to piss in the boat."
  3. Debate Grows Over Public Administration of Narcan

    There was apprehension when the AED's were placed in the public, guess this is along the same lines. I hope for first responders to receive the training, not so sure about the general public.
  4. The first one reminds me of the story of when my husbands parents went to Hawaii and left 4 teen age boys home alone. Needless to say the day of their parents arrival they thought they had everything covered after the block party that lasted for 10 days. They looked at the linoleum floor and noticed all the cigarette burn marks. The parents didn't smoke. They went an got their aunts nail polish bowl that had about 300 colors in it and painstakingly matched nail polish to floor. For some reason, maybe because everyone in town was at the party, no one tattled on them. The parents didn't know a thing until maybe 5 years ago. True story.
  5. Recent Mall shooting - I was there - my thoughts

    Sorry if I offended you that was not my intent. I was just curious if anything had changed.
  6. Recent Mall shooting - I was there - my thoughts

    Ruff it is great that you are all okay and dealing with this, your family is lucky that you have the skills to help them. The most disturbing thing I got out of your post is the following quote: "this really pisses me off that we had to go through this and that I have to explain this crap to my daughter who I was hoping would not be exposed to something of this nature for another couple of years." The reason I find this so troubling is that in the US you have to actually think about having these conversations and or experiences with your kids. Not to say us in Canada don't have our fair share of troubles, but I'm not to sure how many of us feel we need to have the conversation of mall shootings etc. My kids are all grown up and they were raised in a small town that has had 2 murders in like 60 years. The last being about 20 years ago. So I can not remember your stance on guns but has this experience changed your position on gun control in the US? Again glad your safe Happy
  7. 3 ft fall spinal immobolization

    In this case I would not have boarded and collared. I would though have done a very good exam both verbal and physical. All of my findings would have been documented. I had a pt on New Years day who was fighting around with his brother and fell on cement. Of course both were pissy eyed drunk. Any ways I did not collar or board because he was resisting everything I did and flailing his head around. If I did I thought he would have done more damage if there was any. Went to the hospital and explained to the receiving nurse my thought process, he agreed but put on a collar anyway to cover his ass. As I am getting older I do go more by my gut feeling in few areas and I have also discovered that in my community I try to work with the hospital staff and have discussions on why or why not I do things. I have noticed that by doing this I have more respect for the nurses, and drs and they also have more for me. If you have a nurse question you on your treatment be professional and explain, you might be surprised at the response you receive.
  8. hummmmmmmm what to say. oh ya there are those that call for stupid things. really a rash on your hands and feet, bet you thought you were getting out of your jail cell for an extended period of time
  9. Good ways to kill patients

    Always make sure your scene is safe. If you die the pt may die

    When I started all I had to have was a class 4 license. I had no training in driving, no orientation, or advise in how to do so. My experience was just driving big fords on the beach . And yes I did slam on the brakes a little hard a few times...........................................
