On NORAD tracking Santa
My children & my daughter's bff (First Christmas for her!) had so much fun watching NORAD online tracking Santa as he traveled around the world. I got a picture on my phone of when Santa arrived in Wisconsin, around 12:43am last night. :) I used to watch the tv with my dad, & I am happy they have this technology available. Thank you for making it a wonderful, fun Christmas Eve night!

On Report: Edgerton hospital was in violation of staffing, reporting mandates
spbrat- I know Beloit & Rehab got investigated cuz we had a patient admitted from there who was suppossed to be receiving multiple narcotic pain relief medications. A drug screen revealed the patient did not have ANY indication of any of the medications in this person's system. Not even a trace of his meds. HOWEVER, med recs from Beloit Health & Rehab showed they had documented he was receiving his meds as ordered. So tell me, what happenned to the narcotics, & who faslely documented that the patient had their medications administered? I am not even going to go into other issues I saw with this patient cuz of HIPPA. NURSING is a skilled profession. C'mon NURSES advocate for ALL of our patients!!!
I applied for an ER position there in September. The new hospital is very nice in Edgerton. I was very surprised to learn that at their night shifts they had only one RN on, & were going to increase the staff to two ER RNs for night shift. They ended up giving the position to an in house RN already. I do not know all the circumstances, but the lead RN manager, Shelly, she seemed to really care for her staff & patients. I am saddenned that someone died. It must be very frustrating trying to staff and run a new hospital, and of course, you always have SNAFUs that you have to prepare for. When the RN to patient ratio is too much, patients do end up receiving less quality of care. Just remember, RNs are human too. We are not Superman. Just saying. Prayers & my condolences to the family of the deceased patient.
