Welcome to the Show

Good day and welcome to this week’s episode of the Nursing Show podcast for nurses, by nurses. I’m your host Jamie Davis and I’d like to take this opportunity to thank you for checking out the show this week. First up, in this week’s nursing news items, we look at how the few sickest patients in the healthcare system utilize the greatest amount of total resources in that system.

Then in this week’s tip segments I bring you two amazing critical care nurses I interviewed at the American Association of Critical Care Nurses conference (AACN) in San Diego last month. My friends at Physio-Control sponsored me to go to this conference and cover the trends and speakers there. We’ll have that and more later in this episode after the news.

If you want to get back in touch with me, please drop me an email. You can send those e-mails in to I love to hear from you and I make sure I respond back to every email that comes in. Send me links to news items you’d like me to cover, interview suggestions with you or somebody you know.

Tip of the Week – Aeromedical Transport Nursing and A Look at Nursing Fatigue

Joe-Falise-screenshotThis week we have two special segments from NTI 2015 in San Diego last month. First we have an interview with aeromedical transport flight nurse Joe Falise. Joe talks with me about what it takes to work critical care in the air on an air ambulance flying between countries. He talks about the education and background needed for this unique nursing job. Check it out.

Then in this second segment from NTI 2015 at the American Association of Critical Care Nurses (AACN) conference I interviewed nursing researcher and educator Ann Rogers who is continuing her ground-breaking work on nurses, staffing and workplace fatigue. She was the first to document the adverse effects of nurse work hours on patient, nurse and public safety in her seminal study, “The Working Hours of Hospital Staff Nurses & Patient Safety,” which found the long hours frequently worked by nurses led to more mistakes. This research resulted in more than a dozen manuscripts, several book chapters and sweeping changes in nursing policies in clinical settings across the country. Check this segment out.
