A Matter of Life and Death

Gary Hobish was dancing at Golden Gate Park’s, Lindy in the Park, when he suddenly collapsed. Bystanders called 911 and began CPR while Hobish’s friend, Tim O’Brien, ran to the nearby de Young Museum and asked for their AED. But the museum said no—the device couldn’t be removed from the building. Paramedics couldn’t save Hobish, but O’Brien thinks the 10 minutes he spent discussing the defibrillator could have made a difference. The museum has promised changes to its policy.

Stoma Stymie

Gayle Redmon, a disabled doctor from Wales, had to withdraw from the New York City Marathon because the race organizers wouldn’t allow the hydration vest she wears that contains her stoma supplies. Redmon’s stoma requires self-catheterization six times a day, and she must hydrate continuously. But NYC’s race security began prohibiting hydration vests and backpacks after the Boston Marathon bombing. Redmon said their suggested alternatives wouldn’t accommodate her stoma supplies and feels discriminated against.

TECH TUESDAY WITH NURSE MANNY

Sturgeon AI 

As nurses, we're always seeking new technologies that can improve patient care. An exciting development, Sturgeon, is an artificial intelligence system that can analyze a small tumor sample during brain surgery and accurately classify the type of tumor based on molecular patterns. This rapid diagnosis can help guide the surgeon in determining how extensive the operation needs to be.


Rather than waiting for pathology results, Sturgeon can provide key information in minutes right in the OR. This could reduce the need for second surgeries and improve patient outcomes. Scientists in the Netherlands developed the technology, which is currently being tested in hospitals there.


While AI may sound futuristic, Sturgeon shows its potential to enhance medical care. As nurses, we understand the value of quicker test results and tailored treatments. This technology gives surgeons molecular data to complement our assessment and experience. By collaborating with AI, we can continue to find innovative ways to provide the best possible care for patients.


I look forward to seeing how Sturgeon and similar AI tools could positively impact patient care in the future.

FINANCIAL VITALS WITH NURSEMONEYDATE

Triple Tax Savings

Navigating through improving her financial health, Nurse Gloria uncovered a secret unknown to many nurses: the Health Savings Account (HSA) isn’t just a savings vault; it’s an investment powerhouse with a triple tax benefit.

  1. Deductible Contributions: Gloria’s deposits into the HSA are tax-deductible, effectively reducing her taxable income and offering immediate tax savings.

  2. Tax-Free Growth: Gloria nurtures her savings without the drag of tax on any growth, whether through interest, dividends, or capital gains, amplifying her wealth.

  3. Tax-Exempt Withdrawals: Utilizing the HSA for qualified medical expenses, Gloria enjoys making tax-free withdrawals, ensuring additional tax costs do not burden her health-related costs.

However, there’s a catch- to get access to this potent financial tool, eligibility for an HSA demands enrollment in a High Deductible Health Plan (HDHP). Harnessing the power of an HSA, Nurse Gloria ensures her future is healthy and financially stable.
