Every day is an adventure at the correctional facility and
at times it is not from the inmates. Oftentimes, it is from the person I like to call
''The Lovely Doctor.'' I do not know why I call him that, but maybe it is because
it is the nicest name I can call him...yes! It is sarcasm at its finest.
One of the perks that has been rescinded ...
Dear Career Coach: I will
be graduating this May as a new nurse practitioner. I am concerned about the
advice not to skip dates because it may cause my application to be rejected by
HR computer systems. Before beginning my studies I had no direct health care
experience and so I am unsure about how to make a resume that doesn't have a
big gap ...
Over the past month I have had some very challenging
patients. I will often question, why and how did someone end up here at the
correctional facility? I believe it is better I do not know. Actually, it is
none of my business; it keeps the care unbiased and pure and it does not impact
how I treat them. If one of the inmates upsets the ...
Last week, retail clinics were a hot topic. On Twitter, we retweeted an article from @Health_Affairs: ''New Web First online now. Retail Clinic Use Growing Rapidly http://tinyurl.com/9e4jh9y (Free access for two weeks).'' The article highlights the benefits of convenient care, such as longer hours. However, our article The Forked Tongue of ...
I have admittedly been remiss in submitting blogs in a
timely manner and actually have a deadline of 5 pm today! Me, Miss OCD! How
could this happen?
Well, for one, work days are so busy sometimes that I barely
have time to breathe -- average patient seen 25 to 30, from STD exams to
primary care. And since I decided to take full advantage of ...
I have mentioned in many blogs how
much I love being a nurse practitioner. I have enjoyed the opportunities I have
been afforded by associating with so many wonderful professionals and they have
paved the way for me. THANK YOU! The opportunity I am referring to is my role
as an independent contractor for a gerontology group.
One year ago I ...
There are six different physicians in my practice and thus,
six different philosophical approaches to disease treatment and management. As
a new NP, this can be somewhat frustrating. Some days I wish medicine and
nursing were a bit more algorithmic. But alas, it ain't like baking a cake, so
here's to finding the silver lining.
My new collaborative physician
started two weeks ago, and while I was missing my former collaborative
physician, I was glad the company found someone to replace her. One of the
concerns regarding my company is no inclusion of the interview process. When I considered leaving this
company, I wanted to assist in filling my upcoming vacancy. I was ...
My nurses were in an uproar one day over patients who are
trying to schedule post-hospital follow-ups with me whom we'd never seen
before, with complex conditions such as post CABGs and even a renal transplant.
It turns out that Medicaid is randomly assigning patients to primary care
providers in the area, whether there is a former ...
There are several divisions to the medical department at the correctional facility, and for the most part, everyone works collaboratively. There is the medical team consisting of myself, my collaborative physician and our nurse, an LPN. Also, there are nurses, an RN and LPN, who distribute the medication, perform physicals, administer TB testing, ...
