Sobering Thoughts

Drunken College Students –Does the party just roll on or is there something we can do about this?

The Call

The Call – a tribute to Emergency Nursing – Happy Emergency Nurses Week!

Sometimes evil is mere words. Sometimes evil is a gesture. At its worst, evil looks like tonight. 

Who’s the “Troll”?

I get what I’m asking for – a frustrated and angry patient.
