Exciting news for RNs! The national media has picked up on the results of the National Nurses’ Stress Survey. Live today, I will be addressing the elephant in the hospital room, i.e., dangerous levels of stress among RNs. Tune in (or, if you’ll be hard at work at your RN hospital job, set your DVR) today, June 7, 12:15pm EST on FOX Business Network’s Varney & Co. show.
The national FOX Business Network’s news program Varney & Co. has listened to the RNs who invested their time in the National Nurses’ Stress Survey.
A huge thank you to everyone who took our survey “Are You Way Too Stressed Out?” A remarkable 3,312 of you took the time out of your busy day to complete the survey, and this high response rate highlights the seriousness of this issue to the nursing world.
Call me crazy, but I’m never voluntarily retiring from legal nurse consulting. The only way this Elvis is leaving the building is if my Executive Team tasers me then sets me out on an ice flow. Luckily, between global warming and Houston’s fairly tropical climate, there aren’t many ice flows nearby, so my days of looking over my shoulder for polar bears won’t be happening anytime soon.

When a problem in your legal nurse consulting business rears its ugly head, what do you do? That’s right, you assess the problem, dissect it and get to work solving it. Recently I was doing just that when I uncovered an even more important problem, one that I had no idea even existed. Without that first problem, the second one could have gone undetected, creating huge amounts of damage before any of us knew about it.
I wake up every morning with new ideas, ventures and projects for me and my staff. But before I enter into a new venture or project, I ask myself these three questions: “What do I want to come from this venture? Why am I really doing this? How will it benefit me and my clients?” I want to have a clear picture of the goal that I am striving for before I go all in. By clarifying the goal at the beginning, I believe I determine the outcome instead of the outcome being determined by all of the things that happen along the way – those things that distract me from my focus and cause me to settle for less than I wanted.
With the 2013 NACLNC Conference Cruise coming we all have the chance to go scuba diving in Cozumel, Mexico home to some of the best snorkeling and diving you’ll ever experience. The upcoming Cruise reminds me of a personal story I wrote about how I learned to flex my agility and dive deep. Here it is.
My Most Memorable CLNC® Case: A Crack in the Sidewalk Led to a $7.2-Million-Dollar Settlement and 5 New Cases
One of my favorite attorney-clients represented a building owner who was being sued for more than $20 million dollars. Negligence was asserted due to a substantial crack in the sidewalk that resulted in the fall of a 30-year-old man. The gentleman died 27 days after the fall as a result of a subdural hematoma.
Thanksgiving is about taking one day to give thanks for all that we have now, all that we have had in the past and all the possibilities we have in the future. Some of us are most thankful for our family and friends, our health, the people we work with and the freedom to be who and what we choose.
