A Nurse Sounds Off…

Violence against healthcare workers


The Elephant in the Room 


There is a very fundamental problem in U.S. healthcare and that is violence against healthcare workers.


If you haven’t picked up on the fact that this issue is a highly sensitive topic, then you haven’t been paying attention.  Healthcare workers shouldn’t be managed as a commodity for a consumer to use and abuse.  But the million-dollar question is, who is held accountable when a healthcare worker is attacked, abused verbally, physically or emotionally by patients?


AHEC welcomes visitors from afar, 5823 miles away to be more specific!

Last week AHEC hosted 2 students from the city of Pago Pago on the American Samoa Island.  These 2 Radiologic technologists attended our Abdomen 3 day class.  Both women are previous students of AHEC’s Ultrasound and came back to learn new skills.

AHEC nurse vistors for UGVA class and train in Difficult Intra Venous Access studies. In January and February, AHEC hosted two nurses in our Ultrasound Guided Vascular Access classes. Their experience ranged from an ICU RN to CRNA who works in a surgery center. Participants attended our training to get hands-on scanning with phantoms where the ultrasound faculty taught them the essential skills and techniques to perform exams that make a difference in patient outcomes by demonstrating deep vein thrombosis or need for an intervention that can be done under ultrasound guidance. Our UGVA class offers not only the skills training but CME for physicians and CE for nurses.
