(…not really or the nurses will have to get the Defibrillator paddles out. The charge nurse has a few announcements…)
The big day is coming! (Well, at least for us.) On Saturday, October 27, at 12 noon/pst, Nurse Talk will be presented via live stream audio/video on our website at www.nursetalksite.com. Other outlets will be announced soon! For anyone who may be interested, you’ll be able to interact with Shayne, Casey and their guests via social networking and live chat. We’ll be discussing all kinds of things and you can jump right in. Have a medical question for the nurses? Save it for 10/27. Have a question or comment about the Affordable Care Act? Our experts are in. Healthcare advocate and Executive Director for Healthcare For All Colorado, Donna Smith, will be with us. Have a question about flu season? You won’t want to miss our third annual “Fall Flu Fashion Lineup.” Are any of last year’s flus in the running? Check it out.
COMING SOON: The Nurse Talk APP.
It’s a FREE download and it is amazing. Not only can you listen and interact but we will have special offers for our Nurse Talk APP loyals! Loyals not Royals. We’re making it easier to listen and participate, even if you don’t want to!
This week on Nurse Talk: Lynn Ruth Miller
What’s it like to be a stand up comedian traveling the world? Oh..did we mention…an 80 year old stand up comedian traveling the world? Our resident comedian, Lynn Ruth Miller, is with us to talk about what keeps her young at her ripe age and how laughter saved her life.
Safe Lift Bill
We’ll also visit with Marti Smith, RN Government Relations Lead for the California Nurses Association. Marti will talk about why hospitals are not complying with California’s Safe Lift Bill (AB 1136) passed in January of 2012. Is this something we non-medical people should be concerned about? YES! Trust us when we say you do not want to be dropped on your next hospital visit! Is this possible? Yes, indeed, so stick around and find out why you should know about your neighborhood hospital’s “safe lift” policy.
And the usual…
Health Trivia: Does anyone out there know when and why fetuses develop fingernails? We do, and you’ll find out when you listen. Note: If you don’t have time to listen to the broadcasts just visit our website for all of the shows and features since the beginning of time.
Listen and laugh every week, on KNEW 960AM San Francisco at 10 pm every Saturday, or check out our favorite apps featuring Nurse Talk on your listening devices: Progressive Voices, TuneIn and iHeartRadio. You can also listen to any show anytime here at NurseTalkSite.com or on iTunes. Like us on Facebook, and you can listen there too.
And remember: Be kind to nurses…even if they are cranky!
