    A 150 bed hospital in Texas has reached out to the NJHA looking for volunteer nurses for one to two weeks to fly down (private jet leaving Newark Thursday morning) and be able to give their staff some relief. They’ll be happy if they can stay the week, ecstatic if they can stay two weeks. All expenses paid, but no salary (volunteer). They will cover cost of flying back here. Just need your license – they will cover malpractice under their plan. Please share this information and anyone who is interested, email me.

    They need 30 ICU nurses, 30 ED nurses and 30 med/surg/telemetry nurses. Message Aline Holmes for details.

    If you would like to share but can't, please copy and paste into a new post. Then anyone interested can message me.

    Example: Respiratory Therapists on duty 24/7, they care plan ventilators, administer all respiratory meds,, perform all weaning activities and respond to all alarms & respiratory needs. Nursing does nothing for these patients regarding respiratory status & vents. Nursing cannot & does not take credit for this acuity but only thing written I can find is what nursing needs to document to take credit for this acuity.. Anyone have any resources?
