|News / India:Mob attacks doctors, nurse after death of critically ill patient in Mumbai by Idowu Olabode: March 18, 2017, 04:38:29 PM|
In the second such incident in a week, three doctors and a nurse at Nashik General Hospital were assaulted by a mob after a patient died during treatment.
The 700-member staffers at the hospital, which has four guards, have threatened to resign if they are not provided with more security.
The assault has taken place at a time when the Maharashtra Association of Resident Doctors (MARD) is protesting against assaults on colleagues. Over 1,000 doctors from MARD and Indian Medical Association had staged an agitation at Azad Maidan on Friday morning. They were protesting the attack on Dr Rahul Mhamunkar of Dhule Civil Hospital who was beaten up by the relatives of a patient after he referred the patient to another facility.
Dr S P Jagdale, medical superintendent of Nashik General Hospital said that the attacks on the three doctors and the nurse took place at 10.30pm on Thursday when a patient who was diagnosed with swine flu was brought to the hospital in a critical condition. “We told the family that the patient is extremely critical and there is a little chance that the treatment can save him. They asked for a written confirmation and we gave it to them,” said Dr Jagdale.
The patient was apparently brought to the hospital after a preliminary treatment at Sangamner. “They forced us to admit the patient. However, he died during the treatment and the 25-30 people who had accompanied him turned violent,” added Dr Jagdale.
The mob allegedly thrashed Dr Rahul Patil, two trainee doctors and a nurse. “They yanked the nurse’s apron and belt so hard that it tore her uniform. Those people were violent beyond control. We have informed the local police station about the incident,” said Dr Jagdale. While none of the staffers sustained severe injuries, they suffered bruises and minor cuts in the incident.
Officials from Directorate of Health Services said that 18 guards are allotted to the hospital but only four works in one shift. The hospital doesn’t have any security personnel from the local police station.
The hospital staffers immediately called for a strike after the incident which was called off only at 3pm on Friday after the police officials filed an FIR.
Speaking about the delay in filing the complaint, the investigating officer Mithun Mhatre said that they started the procedure only after receiving a written complaint from the hospital officials. “We have not arrested anyone yet and the investigations are underway,” he said.

Hello! I am also a passer of NCLEX under NJ BON and my agency advised me to have an initial licensure in NMI BON. The requirements are easy compared to other state. It includes, BIRTH CERTIFICATE, COLLEGE TOR, HS TOR, PHOTO, NCLEX PASS LETTER and 3 AUTHORIZATION LETTERS to be sent to Your BON, NCSBN/PEASONVUE and to NMI BON. All should be notarized.
My question is, the COLLEGE TOR should have the RLE subjects included or just plain TOR from the Registrar? Also, how long will it take to have been approve?

|Travel Nursing / Re: My HAAD Nurse Registration Journey and Experience: A Guide for other Nurses by Idowu Olabode: March 18, 2017, 10:41:15 AM|
Obtain a letter from your hospital stating:
Your position as a Registered Nurse, date you got employed and that you are still working with them, your responsibilities, etc. The letter should be in your hospital letterhead paper with email and phone number of who to contact, hospital stamp etc.
You can use your notification and in case you are contacted later for certificate tell them that you certificate isn't ready from council.

|Travel Nursing / Re: My HAAD Nurse Registration Journey and Experience: A Guide for other Nurses by Idowu Olabode: March 18, 2017, 06:26:09 AM|
@Mobolaji, it is completely false. Nurses who work in private hospitals are eligible to apply.
@Olori Abike, is your HAAD login home still opening? Login to your application to see if it's still active and try to see if you can still make booking for your exam. If not then I I suggest you call HAAD and tell them you weren't able to write the exam before the given deadline and ask for extension. Note that you should have your details ready (including login ID) in case they ask. Alternatively, send them a mail.
@Sharonk,you don't need to sign or stamp your documents just like you have seen from this post. No, you can't use your employment letter it has to be a letter written by your employer. Below are the needed requirements once again:
1. My Nursing license
2. My Nursing Certificates (both the one issued by your school and Nursing and Midwifery Council)
3. Marriage Certificate (To prove change of name if you are married )
4. International Passport
6. Transcripts from Nursing School
7. WAEC certificate
8. Passport photograph (coloured on white background)
9. Employment Certificate (Letter from your employer)
10. Good Standing Certificate from Nursing and Midwifery Council of Nigeria

|News / Overworked Nurse immediately fall asleep next to her pet dogs on getting home by Idowu Olabode: March 17, 2017, 07:04:43 PM|
The video captures the adorable moment an exhausted nurse dozed off after a busy shift cuddling her two pet bulldogs.
Rachel Martinko, 29, a nurse at Morton Plant Hospital in Florida, had just finished a long shift and returned home exhausted.
As she collapsed in bed she was joined by her dogs Cleatus, nine, and Opie, three.
The touching moment was captured by her boyfriend, Ethan Wycoff, 32, a software sales representative.
He said: 'They were all sleeping so soundly, Cleatus snoring as usual, and it was too cute not to film it.
'Rachel had just finished her third consecutive day at the hospital and had worked a longer than normal shift. She was exhausted.'
He added: 'She always comes in to greet us before taking a shower and unwinding for the day. She was home less than 10 minutes before a simple hug and a kiss for the boys ended up sucking her in with them.'
The bulldogs Cleatus, 9, and Opie, 3, were totally exhausted from lounging around the house all day and decided it was a great opportunity to reel her in for a nap on the bed.
'My dogs don't typically do anything to earn their perpetual exhaustion, but they sleep hard and they will often suck you in to a nap like a black hole.
'They slept for a good hour before Cleatus kicked Rachel in the head trying to reposition himself.
'He's my old man. He fits the bulldog stereotype in every way. He's calm, slow, lazy (or energy efficient as we call him) quiet, rarely gets excited about anything other than food,' Mr Wycoff said.
Despite the numerous evil attempts to trick them into taking impromptu naps the couple absolutely love their lazy dogs, and take them just about everywhere.
'They join us to dinner, to the bar, to watch sports, the beach, on vacation, you name it.'
