Talking with a Medical Examiner Investigator Pt. 2

I think part two of my talk with Dorothy is as profound as it is irreverent. Dorothy explains how people die as they lived and we ponder elements of 'a good death'. We absolutely must address the need for a morbid sense of humor in high-stress, high-trauma fields, as evidenced by almost every joke we crack. Then we dig deeper into her work as a medical examiner investigator and explore the classification system used to document death by the Medical Examiner.

Talking with a Medical Examiner Investigator Pt. 1

In this episode, Adrianne is joined by nurse and medical examiner investigator, Dorothy. She's lived a very interesting nursing life so far and has such great perspective on being an advocate for all patients. Dorothy is going to tell us all about her days in the Operating Room, home hospice and how she goes about investigating the deaths of people all over her county. NSFW but, boy, is this interesting. Pt 1 of 2.

Calling Patients Wrong Names, Relationships with Management, and Report Styles

In this conversation between Adrianne and old pal Andrew Craig they topic-hop, as usual. They discuss the horrors of calling a patient by the wrong name, more comparisons between day and night shift (since Andrew has officially been working days), relationships with management, and personal preferences in getting and giving report. If you've been paying attention, you will also know that they talk about a hundred other little things along the way.
