The Best of the Best of the Best: RN Carol Barazi, RN Angil Tarach-Richey and More Fun!
Join us for a rerun of one of our favorites. Shayne and Casey have some fun with the story about the dentist who pulled all of her x-boyfriend’s teeth! At least as much fun as you can have over such a tragic loss. Dumping a girlfriend is never easy but having all 32 teeth pulled out by her is the worst that could happen to anybody. Listen and find out just how this happened. There is a moral to the story too. A fairly obvious one at that.
We also visit with San Leandro Hospital RN Carol Barazi about Sutter Corp’s announcement to close yet another hospital in the Bay Area—this time in San Leandro—which serves the East Bay. Of the 27,000 patients seen in the San Leandro emergency room last year, more than 60 percent came from the underserved area of East Oakland, patients who will now need to drive many miles over crowded freeways for care.
Ever wonder what’s behind the old face? Angil Tarach-Ritchey RN, and national expert in senior care provides us with an insightful look at the lives of the aging. With over 30 years experience in senior care and advocacy Angil passionately talks about her elder advocacy project and book, Behind The Old Face. Angil is a frequent blogger on the Nurse Talk website and comes to Nurse Talk by way of our friends at Nurse Together
Don’t forget to visit our website and blog. Check out the latest healthcare news stories and listen to archives of our shows. Our blog is fantastic and every time I visit and read the entries I am honestly either laughing or crying—which are two of my FAVORITE things to do. I am astounded by people’s courage—the courage they exhibit when they share their journey through grave illness—to recovery. There’s Barbara and Missy, Bobbi, Brandi, Joyce, Angil and more. A big thank you to all of you for sharing your stories with us.
And big news on more ways to listen to Nurse Talk.
