What's New
Lynette Damir, RN, CEO and Creative Director, SwaddleDesigns Lynette Damir, RN, CEO and Creative Director, founded SwaddleDesigns in 2002. The inspiration for SwaddleDesigns was sparked when Lynette visited families with new babies in their homes and she noticed they struggled with swaddling for two reasons. First, the blanket they were using was too small or too thick, and second, they could not remember how to make a good secure swaddle. The parents consistently asked her to share the secret of the hospital nurses - how to swaddle."
Phone: 1-855-SWADDLE or 855-792-3353 (Mon - Fri 8:30am to 5pm)

    Rude Doctors, Nursingdiscussions.com:"Would love to know how some of you handle rude doctors, the ones that think every question is stupid; the ones that use every available opportunity to publicly humiliate. Last week, I had had enough and yelled right back, and the way my co-workers looked at me, I was half expecting to be sacked. It didn't happen, but I wonder if I potentially face valid administrative recrimination for speaking up for myself. Feedback greatly appreciated!"

Does Pink "missundaztand" nurses? , Nursingadvocacy.org:"Missundaztood" dresses Pink's young misfit thing in safe rock and hip-hop styles, and the self-declared un-Britney emerges with a fairly engaging album for bubblegum pop graduates. Unfortunately, the record includes a prominent and troubling reference to nurses."

Drug Abuse:

    Accused of Doing Drugs, Would like advice from someone that been there (Accused of Drug Use, State Board Inquiry):"I am feeling very stressed and glad I found this site, I have only been in nursing for four years and I truly enjoy what I do, and have done well. Recently I received a letter from the nursing board in my state and they said they received a letter from someone stating that I do drugs and come to work stoned."

    Impaired Nurses, Nursingdiscussions.com:"Hello to all. I am new to this site and I'm so glad to find it. I haven't found a topic though that plagues alot of nurses;which is substance abuse. I became addicted to pain medication while working on an orthopedic floor in 1998 and began diverting pain medication from the hospital. Eventually, (thank God) I was intervened upon and suspended from work pending a psych eval. I went to treatment for a total of 7 months. Now, I am in a state monitoring program that watches me very closely. I am just now getting back into the work force, and it is so hard to tell these potiential employers about my past, even a little embarrassing. I was just wanting some feedback from some others out there? Their experiences? Stories?
