October is for Breasts

Posted on: October 6, 2015,  Posted in: October is for Breasts

By: Rebecca Bailey, RN

October is National Breast Cancer awareness month and it’s a topic that’s near and dear to my heart. I’ve lost friends way too soon and I know it’s something that hits close to home for all of us as women, as nurses, and as human beings.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month

 First things first, early detection is key. When detected early before spreading, the 5 year survival rate is 98% (National Cancer Institute.)  We all know we should be doing breast self exams.  Are we?  I know I’m not as consistent as I should be. One way to remember is to perform the self exam on the date of your birthday monthly. For example, my birthday is January 5 so I can do mine on the 5th of each month.  Or if you like your phone bossing you around (I do! I live by my reminders) you can download an app called Early Detection Plan and set it up to remind you monthly. You can also set it up to prompt you to make that mammogram appointment.

Speaking of mammograms, the American Cancer Society recommends women age 40 and over who have average risk and are in good health to have a mammogram every year.  Breast self exam is so important, but mammograms can detect cancer sooner than you can feel a lump. If you have a family history or find anything abnormal it is possible you may need to begin yearly screenings earlier than age 40. For me, I felt a lump that ended up being dense tissue (8 out of 10 lumps are non cancerous but always warrant a visit to the doctor!) They did spot another area they wanted to watch.  I just made my appointment today to get my follow up mammogram next week.  As far as family history goes, having a first degree relative (mom or sister) with breast cancer approximately doubles your risk.

The Susan G. Komen website has a list of changes to watch for in your breast self exam.  These include a lump, or hardness or thickening of the skin of the breast or underarm. Also, any swelling or warmth in these areas is cause for concern.   Inverted nipples and sudden discharge are also a cause for concern. Call your doctor for new pain in one spot that doesn’t go away. The key is to know your body and get any changes checked out.

When it comes to caring for the patient with breast cancer compassion is so important. The patient is going to have body image issues as well as fear and anxiety from the cancer diagnosis, so it is especially important to support the patient and manage psychosocial as well as physical issues. Some things we can do are to provide education on chemotherapy and breast reconstruction. Inform her of support groups in the area.   Post surgically, she will need education on her drainage device and wound care.  Pain management will be an issue, and she may need education on how to work with you to manage the pain (for example, not letting her pain become too severe before asking for medication.) The American Cancer Society has provided a list of education resources regarding cancer treatment for medical professionals to provide patients.  Therapeutic communication is crucial, especially in regards to listening in order to determine the patient’s physical and emotional needs.

Here are some ways to get involved.  Find a fundraiser event wherever your travel assignment takes you.  You can also kick off your own fundraiser here whether you want to host a bake sale, or a run, or benefit dinner.  You can even set up a fundraiser page at the same website.  Whether you want to donate time, or money to the cause we can all join in to aid in the fight against breast cancer.

UV Safety Month

Posted on: July 7, 2015,  Posted in: UV Safety Month

Summer is here and it’s the time to enjoy the outdoors to the fullest.

July is UV Safety Month and the  Federal Occupational Health Agency reminds us of the importance of protecting our skin from harmful ultraviolet rays. The skin is the body’s largest organ. It protects against heat, sunlight, injury, and infection. Yet, some of us don’t consider the necessity of protecting our skin.

 

Protect your Skin

 

It’s just smart to take good care of your skin

The need to protect your skin from the sun has become very clear over the years, supported by several studies linking overexposure to the sun with skin cancer. The harmful ultraviolet rays from both the sun and indoor tanning “sunlamps” can cause many other complications besides skin cancer – such as eye problems, a weakened immune system, age spots, wrinkles, and leathery skin.

 

How to protect your skin

There are simple, everyday steps you can take to safeguard your skin from the harmful effects of UV radiation from the sun.

– Avoid the burn Sunburns significantly increase one’s lifetime risk of developing skin cancer. It is especially important that children be kept from sunburns as well.

-Go for the shade Stay out of the sun, if possible, between the peak burning hours, which, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO), are between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. You can head for the shade, or make your own shade with protective clothing – including a broad-brimmed hat, for example.

-Use extra caution when near reflective surfaces, like water, snow, and sand Water, snow, sand, even the windows of a building can reflect the damaging rays of the sun. That can increase your chance of sunburn, even if you’re in what you consider a shady spot.

-Use extra caution when at higher altitudes You can experience more UV exposure at higher altitudes, because there is less atmosphere to absorb UV radiation.

-Apply broad-spectrum sunscreen Generously apply broad-spectrum sunscreen to cover all exposed skin. The “broad spectrum” variety protects against overexposure to ultraviolet A (UVA) and ultraviolet B (UVB) rays. The FDA recommends using sunscreens that are not only broad spectrum, but that also have a sun protection factor (SPF) value of at least 15 for protection against sun-induced skin problems.

-Re-apply broad-spectrum sunscreen throughout the day Even if a sunscreen is labeled as “water-resistant,” it must be reapplied throughout the day, especially after sweating or swimming. To be safe, apply sunscreen at a rate of one ounce every two hours. Depending on how much of the body needs coverage, a full-day (six-hour) outing could require one whole tube of sunscreen.

 

July is UV Safety Month

 

When to protect your skin

UV rays are their strongest from 10 am to 4 pm Seek shade during those times to ensure the least amount of harmful UV radiation exposure. When applying sunscreen be sure to reapply to all exposed skin at least 20 minutes before going outside. Reapply sunscreen every two hours, even on cloudy days, and after swimming or sweating.

 

Protecting your eyes

UV rays can also penetrate the structures of your eyes and cause cell damage. According to the CDC, some of the more common sun-related vision problems include cataracts, macular degeneration, and pterygium (non-cancerous growth of the conjunctiva that can obstruct vision).

-Wear a wide-brimmed hat To protect your vision, wear a wide-brimmed hat that keeps your face and eyes shaded from the sun at most angles.

-Wear wrap-around style sunglass with 99 or higher UV block Effective sunglasses should block glare, block 99 to 100% of UV rays, and have a wraparound shape to protect eyes from most angles.

-Using the UV index

When planning your outdoor activities, you can decide how much sun protection you need by checking the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) UV index. This index measures the daily intensity of UV rays from the sun on a scale of 1 to 11. A low UV index requires minimal protection, whereas a high UV index requires maximum protection.

Posted on: June 25, 2015,  Posted in: Travel Nursing Destination: North Carolina

Traveling Registered Nurse Jobs in North Carolina

The Appalachian mountain is located in western part of the state forming the abundant landscape of the region. The Great Smoky Mountains in southwestern North Carolina are one of the country’s top natural wonders and traveling Registered Nurses can enjoy 250 miles of the world-famous Blue Ridge Parkway winding through North Carolina’s mountains. Mount Mitchell is the highest peak in the state, and at 6,684 feet, it is also the tallest mountain in the eastern United States.

Two-thirds of North Carolina’s mountains are covered with hardwood forests, and in autumn, the over 120 species of trees put on a brilliant display of color. Some areas of the region see over 30 inches of snow a year, so skiing, snowboarding and other winter sports are popular activities for the travel RN to enjoy while on assignment in North Carolina. Summers are cool and refreshing with low humidity.

National Safety Month

Posted on: June 23, 2015,  Posted in: National Safety Month

The National Safety Council has designated the month of June as National Safety Month. The mission of NSC is to promote safety at work, at home and on the road.  Below are safety tips for travel nurses provided by The National Safety Council.

 

National Safety Council

Safety Check: Slips, Trips and Falls

No matter the workplace environment, tripping hazards are everywhere. Use these tips to help you maintain a clutter-free and safe workplace.  Secure electrical and phone cords away from traffic areas, such as hallways.  Use non-skid rugs and be sure to tape them down to prevent rolling.  Keep drawers and cabinets closed at all times. Be sure to wear the proper footwear for the job, paying special attention to outdoor conditions. Clean up any spills immediately and include warning signage. Refrain from walking distracted – stay focused on your surroundings. Ensure there is adequate lighting in workspaces . Don’t carry too much – you need your arms to maintain balance and stability

Fast Stat: Falls are the most common cause of traumatic brain injuries, including concussions. (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention

 

Safety Check: Ergonomics

Lift safely!  Improper lifting technique can lead to strains, dislocations and even muscle tears, with most injuries occurring in the back. Whether you’re organizing your inventory or decorating your home, make sure you’re practicing these safe-lifting guidelines. Stretch beforehand so your body gets warmed up. Keep your back straight and bend your knees – remember to never twist or bend your back. Make sure you’re on solid ground with your feet shoulder-width apart. Keep the box or object close to your body. Lift with your legs, not your back.  Limit the amount of weight you carry – it’s better to separate boxes or make two trips than to carry too much at once. Ask for help to carry heavy, bulky or large loads. Keep pathways clear of tripping hazards

Fast Stat: About 80% of the American population will experience a back problem at some point. These injuries are not only  preventable, they’re also costly – Americans spend at least $50 billion each year on back pain. (American Chiropractic Association)

 

Safety Check: Get There Safe and Sound

Car crashes remain a leading cause of unintentional death in the U.S., with nearly 100 people killed on our roadways every day. Fortunately, these crashes can be prevented if we all take steps to ensure one another’s safety. On the road, off the phone Cell phone use – texting or talking on a handheld or hands-free device – is involved in an estimated 26 percent of all crashes each year. Hands-free is not risk-free, either. Even if your hands are on the wheel and your eyes are on the road, your brain is distracted by the cell phone conversation. Before you set out, make sure:  Your cell phone is turned off and put in a purse, trunk or glove compartment, to designate a passenger to answer the phone for you if you’re expecting a call,  and  to schedule breaks to check voicemail, texts and emails.

Get plenty of sleep An estimated 1,550 people are killed each year in crashes involving drowsy drivers. You should never get behind the wheel if you are tired or have been taking certain medications. To make sure you don’t get tired during the drive: Take a pre-drive nap, and pull over for a “power nap” if you get tired. Drive with a partner, and switch drivers every two hours. Schedule frequent breaks to get out and stretch your legs.

Fast Stat: More than 35,000 people are killed each year in traffic crashes, with alcohol, speeding and distraction being leading crash factors. (Injury Facts ®)

Tip: Drive the way you want your fellow motorists to drive. Turn off your cell phone, get plenty of sleep, never drive after drinking and spend time teaching your teen how to drive.
