Beth Kean and Dr. Matthew Edlund | Show 240
DAN’S THING IS REVEALED AND LESLIE WHITE IS THE WINNER OF THE “DAN’S THING” CONTEST.
So now we know…Dan’s search for the perfect THING is over and he is now the proud owner of a 1973 VW THING. For some of us who were around to witness the “roll out” of this fabulous das auto—it is really exciting to see the THING is as adorable as we remember. OK, a few scratches and scrapes —ALRIGHT—big dents and 240,000 miles later—she’s still a gem!! Stay safe Dan and here’s hoping you have AAA.OK COMING UP ON NURSE TALK…Casey and Dan visit with the California Nurses Association’s Beth Kean.
Beth talks about the recent ruling by a Superior Court judge that stopped the walk-out of over 12,000 UC Medical Center RNs. The RNs have been trying to call attention to the fact that UC Medical Centers (most notably U.C. Davis in Sacramento) have not been complying with the California RN-to-Patient Ratio law. The bill was passed over 10 years ago and mandates hospitals in California limit the number of patients per shift nurses can safely treat. A recent study proved that the bill does save lives. This is important stuff for all of us to know.
AND CAN WE TALK? Yes we can and we are talking about the POWER OF REST by Dr. Matthew Edlund. Dr. Edlund’s book is really a different approach to sleep and he makes a distinction between SLEEP AND REST. He finds that many people are not just sleep deprived they are REST deprived and there is a BIG DIFFERENCE. The book is fascinating and if you want to read it after you have listened to the interview–just go to our site at www.nursetalksite.com.OK all for now and you can listen to Nurse Talk every Sunday at 2PM PST on Green 960AM or live stream at green960.com.
