Nurses’ Salaries

Recently, I came across an ever so interesting article in Becker’s ASC Review regarding statistics on why ambulatory surgery centers are concerned. According to a Medscape study, the hourly rate for a full-time registered nurse is $40/hour with part time R.N.’s earning $42.00 per hour.  What caught my eye was that, though they do not get the full-time benefits, part-timers […]

You Are Not Alone

Cold Calling And Blind Mailing

Everyone hates receiving those telemarketer phone calls.  They are what I consider to be “cold calls.”  If you’re calling a potential client or an attorney who you don’t know, good luck in trying to get past the gatekeeper or actually speaking to the potential client. In addition, sending blind letters to attorneys or potential clients is such a great waste […]

Crisis Care

It is hard to believe that we live in a first world nation that is one of the wealthiest on the planet yet needs to ration healthcare. It is really scary how patients can go to a hospital and potentially be denied care because of a shortage of resources. Not only that, and even scarier, is that hospitals are being […]
