Well, Casey and Shayne share a few stories. Casey tells a story about an elderly woman’s escape from an assisted living facility. A World War II Vet—this sweet 89-year-old woman managed to slip by the door attendants, walk down a hill to the parking lot, HOTWIRE a car and drive it around town for 45 minutes—without incident by the way! A missing resident alert was issued and police were called. They found the woman cruising at 24 miles per hour—helmet hair and all–down the streets of a town that shall remain unnamed. Wow—how the hell do you HOTWIRE a car anyway?
This week we give a salute to the Massachusetts Nurses Association. We are joined by RN and President of Mass. Nurses Association, Donna Kelly Williams. Donna speaks about the recent victories the nurses have had with respect to keeping Taunton State Hospital opened and witnessing the signing of legislation to make mandatory overtime illegal. She also finds a way to slip in a little about the Red Sox. Remember Boston you can listen to Nurse Talk on Revolution Boston 1510 AM. We thank all of you wonderful nurses for fighting the fight to improve patient care!
And–What’s So Funny about Diabetes? Well of course nothing—but there can be humor in the circumstances. RN, motivational speaker and author Karyn Buxman joins us to talk about the healing power of laughter and her new book series “What’s So Funny About…” The first edition of “What’s So Funny” is about the challenges of diabetes. We’ll visit with Karyn about her busy world and why she trusts the power of humor as a potent healing tool. You can learn more and buy the book at karynbuxman.com.
And we play our new game (while working out the bugs, so to speak) Health Trivia! With a little help from our friends from iTriage each week we will present a quiz about all kinds of health related issues—and if you get the answer right—you get a FREE MRI! Just kidding. A free coffee gift card for $25—that is if our Producer remembers to send it to you.
