Health and Fitness Guru Joanie Greggains and Nurses Say NO to Keystone

Check out Mary Maxwell from Caregiverstress.com—doing what she does best—giving great advice. Love it!

We all know good things happen to bad people or is it bad things happen to good people? Well anyway a few weeks ago over 4000 people were on a lovely Gulf of Mexico Carnival cruise—which turned into a major disaster. The crew and passengers were left to fend for themselves and, boy, things got as bad as things can get. It’s also kind of amazing that we haven’t heard much, if anything, about this in the aftermath? Hmmmm. Our medical records should be so private!! Oh–of course they are–HIPAA!

Casey: “The crazy part of that whole thing? Who was making these incredibly stupid decisions, it seemed to have gone from bad to worse. God help the nurse on that cruise!”

Shayne: “Well Casey it is our lucky day because earlier this week we caught up with one of the ship’s nurses. Lets listen…”

Shayne: “Well, Casey, this feels like another 5 minutes of our lives wasted.”

We do have a great show this week. We are joined by California RN Sherri Stoddard, a veteran nurse with 31 years of labor and delivery on her resume. Sherri is passionate about her career and no less passionate about the health of her community and the country. She talks with us about the health and safety effects of the proposed Keystone Pipeline, and why nurses and healthcare professionals are opposed to it. Whether you are for or against the pipeline, the truth is there are short and long term health and environmental effects that all of us should be aware of. Sherri Stoddard also sits on the Board of Directors of the California Nurses Association.
