Nurse Talk RNs on the sidelines at this year’s SUPER BOWL?

Who would have thought Casey and Shayne would be called upon to be medical advisers during the SUPER BOWL for Jim Harbaugh, coach of the San Francisco 49ers? I am sure not many—and to be truthful—they weren’t. BUT one of them dreamed about it. Which one could that have been? Well, at the very least it is exciting to see our 49ers back in the SUPER BOWL.

And speaking of the Bay Area—most of you locals know TV and radio health and fitness expert Joanie Greggains. After 25 years on KGO radio in San Francisco—Joanie crossed the picket line and will be featured on Nurse Talk in a new weekly segment called “Fit Happens.” The segment begins in February.

We all know the V.A. hospital system is a lifeline for our returning veterans. What we don’t know or may not think about is the overwhelming case loads for the healthcare practitioners who care for these vets. Recently V.A. System RNs won a NATIONAL CONTRACT that they say will ensure vets the level of QUALITY CARE they deserve. At issue for a long time has been the lack of sufficient staffing among other safety concerns. V.A. RN Irma Westmoreland is with us to talk about this landmark contract. Irma also talks about the advances that have been made within the system to increase and improve immediate care for Veterans. We don’t hear enough about the good that is being done and the improvements being made so this is great news to share.

(Obviously) Fitness Expert Joanie Greggains. Joanie joins the Nurse Talk team in February with her segment, “Fit Happens.”
