Varies by state but Nurses can pronounce a patient dead if its in hospice. Should be across the states in all settings
A Mississippi man who was at his house when he “died” started to move in the funeral home.

ETHICAL ISSUE: Do #nurses have the right to pronounce a patient dead?

No surprise. Employees that are thoroughly screened, trained well, respected and appreciated enjoy their jobs and provide better and loyal care.

Watched your video on sizing video but it doesn't address ratio or how to make the video smaller if you want to place several video's on a wordpress page.  I would like to add thumbnail sized videos that open to the larger video when clicked.  Something like how they appear on facebook.  Do you have a tutorial on that or can you help me?

Hi Angil. I don't; however, soon as I have time it's a good idea for a new support video. In the interim, I hope this helps: under a video's title you will see sub- titles About, Share, Add To, etc. Choose Share, then look for more subtitles underneath that and choose Embed. Then under the embed code revealed you will see Video Size choices where can choose one provided OR add a custom size. It should embed into WordPress as you size it. Good luck!

Experienced Nurses need to be given more autonomy in their positions. Nurses are the frontline of care and have more experience in evidence based practice, in general, than the physicians who have limited time with their patients.

You can join in creating our aging future, or wish you had
Angil Tarach-Ritchey RN, GCM is an author, speaker, consultant and national expert in senior care.  With over 30 years experience in senior care and advocacy Angil is very passionate about eldercare and is well respected in her field. Angil has written 3 books, and recently released "Behind the Old Face: Aging in America and the Coming Elder Boom" on November 13, 2012, which has received excellent endorsements from 2 nursing organizations.  She has also written a cutting edge M2E Book, "The Aging Question: A Vision for the Coming Elder Boom", which is a mini-media ebook and preview of "Behind the Old Face."  It includes text, photos and video clips of 2 of the aging adults Angil interviewed and features in "Behind the Old Face."  Her 1st book was written for Kindle and is the 2011 edition of Quick Guide to Understanding Medicare, Medicaid and other payer sources which remained on the best seller list for its category for a full year,  despite being outdated.   Angil has written for several websites including NurseTogether, the Alzheimer's Reading Room, Wellsphere, the National Senior Living Provider’s Network, Ann Arbor News, and her own blog, Aging in America.  Her passion and expertise have led to being published in the Chicago Sun Times, Maturity Matters, Medpedia, Vitamins Health, Medworm, Alzheimer’s New Zealand and several other publications.  She has been featured on Nurse Talk, WE Magazine for Women; Women on a Mission, Life Goes Strong, You and Me Health Magazine, His Is Mine, and Abec’s Small Business Review and quoted in several publications, such as CNBC,  Reuters, Consumer Affairs, PTO Today, Women Entrepreneur and more.   Chronic illness has been a part of Angil's life since 2003.  After 5 years of struggling with a life changing "mystery" illness she was finally diagnosed with Sjogren's Syndrome and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.  Her unique perspective as a nurse and patient is evident in her writing and advocacy, and makes her experiences even more relatable to those she assists and educates.   Personally Angil is married to her "best friend", as she describes her husband Bernie Ritchey and they have a blended family of 5 adult children and 4 grandchildren.  She and her husband are active Christians who are involved in their church and World Vision, in which Bernie is a Child Ambassador.
