dzokhar tsarnaev boston bombing nurses care treatment patient

What's it like, being the nurses of a terrorist?

Do you just put in the bare minimum to keep the patient alive? Do you treat them with the same kindness and respect you give other patients?

For the nurses of Dzokhar Tsarnaev, they treated the younger half of the Boston Bombers to the best of their ability — but set up a pact to catch each other if

Thousands Of Nurses In California Might Strike

Filed under: Business Blitz

Nurse Strike

Thousands of nurses in northern and central California might strike over benefit cuts and other reasons that Kaiser Permanente is looking to enact.

We have this to say: What about the patients?

Yeah, we understand that nurses work extremely hard and should be paid and benefitted accordingly, they're some of the hardest working people out there, but striking while there are sick and ailing people who need their help seems kinda wrong. There has got to be other avenues.

At least the hospitals are finding that they're able to find replacements if this happens:

The California Nurses Association — the union organizing the strike — estimates that nearly 23,000 nurses will walk off the job at 7 a.m. at 33 not-for-profit hospitals run by Kaiser Permanente and Sutter Health, and at the independent Children's Hospital Oakland. The hospitals include Kaiser facilities in Oakland, San Francisco and San Jose, and the Berkeley and Oakland campuses of Alta Bates Summit Medical Center — a Sutter Health-affiliated hospital.

Sutter Health and Children's Hospital are prepared to bring in replacement nurses, according to officials at each of the hospital groups. Kaiser Permanente says it, too, has made preparations.

We're really torn by this. We see the need to take the stand, but we honestly can not get the idea of disrupting a patient's care because of this. It seems so wrong to us, because they're the ones with the most to lose (their lives) and they aren't even a direct part of the argument!

What do U guys think?

It is likely the patients will now contract HIV, while the doctors and nurses who operated on them are at a high risk as well.

Check out the video above to find out how such an awful thing was allowed to happen!

Filed under: HealthSurgery

Zsa Zsa Gabor Is Yelling At Her Nurses

LOL! This is a good sign!

Zsa Zsa Gabor is going through some really tough times. She just had part of her leg amputated (successfully), and is now back in her Bel Air mansion.

Her spokesman John Blanchette even joked that she has been “yelling at nurses” and that “everything is back to normal.”

Doctors are optimistic about Zsa Zsa’s condition after going through surgery.

We hope her nurses are treating her well!!
