Patient safety is better in hospitals that have made improvements to the clinical work environment for nurses, according to a survey of registered nurses and patients from 535 hospitals. Source: medscape.com.👨⚕️👩⚕️🏥🛌
Hospitals that fail to improve the clinical work environment may be slowing their own progress toward reducing patient harm, researchers say.

The Eastern Indigo Snake has a beautiful glossy, iridescent, blue-black coloration. This snake is most abundant in sandhill plant communities and uses gopher tortoise burrows as shelter during the winter and for nesting and refuge from the heat during the summer. Due to habitat loss, the Eastern Indigo is federally threatened in both Florida and Georgia. #Snakes#Archboldconserves#archboldshares#archboldprotects#scrublife#loveFL#fieldstation

New running gear makes me happy 🏃🏼♀️
Had a rather stressful Monday so far attempting to sort out a malfunctioning debit card!! But it’s fixed now, so I can finally relax 😌 working late today so just time for a run, laundry and a shower before tackling whatever EH emergency department decides to throw my way today! Have a great Monday ✌🏼 #runnersofig#garmin#nikerun#happymonday#theradiographerinred#scrublife

* I know at the end of the day this is just a post of me in scrubs but I hope some of you can take a little bit from me to fuel your fire. I love you guys and sometimes you just need to see a caption or certain image that might spark some inspiration in your minds. Work hard and stop making excuses ❤️🙏🏼 Scrubs @cherokeeuniforms
Who said you can’t be both? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Since starting my page, I’ve had so many young women message me saying that it’s their dream to apply to MedSchool & become a Doctor, but the ‘problem’ is they want to get married while they’re young, have a family and be an wife/mother. They ask me for advice on what to choose. Career or Family? Doctor or Wife?
To them I say, be both.
Yes, MedSchool is tough and requires hours of dedication and hard work. But, with the love & support of an understanding partner, the journey is only made easier- take it from someone who knows! Since moving to the US, I’ve actually met so many more women who got married (and some who even had kids) during medschool. I’m SURE it was very tough to find a healthy balance, but it was certainly possible.
The notion that females in medicine (or ANY field of work that requires long hours for that matter!) don’t make for great wives or mothers is not only completely incorrect, but it’s also insulting. The sad thing is, this mentality is so prevalent, especially amongst South Asians (from my experience), that young women actually believe it, and are making life & career decisions based on this misconception.
I’m lucky that I had a great role model growing up. My mother. Who not only is a wonderful mother mA, but is also an ED Doctor and the reason I was inspired to become a doctor too! #alhamdulillah ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
When young girls message me to say I inspire them I honestly feel incredibly honoured (and very undeserving!), and, if inspiring 1 girl to achieve her goals is the ONLY thing that comes from me starting this page, then I’ll be very happy. I’m tagging just a few (of MANY) women I’ve come across here on IG who inspire ME with their posts about family & medicine and share how they balance them: @clearskindoc@dermy_doctor@storyofstyle@lauralacquer@eyegirlmd@dryazdan@drsaharshafi@primarycaredoc@nabeelapatail@drrupawong@essenceofmed@draishasindhu
Share your story or tag someone who inspires you too!
Thank you @nurse.georgie for including me in your #shecanbeboth campaign! I LOVE seeing other women in healthcare unapologetically doing their thing! #womeninmedicine#womenwhoheal
