In addition, pts will be more consistent in getting prenatal care #RNchat 3/26/2010 21:45 NursingCenter: T1 I think it will depend on practice setting, more pts in primary care, but hopefully this will eventually mean less acute visits. #RNchat 3/26/2010 21:45 tactile: T1 We may see an influx of pts who have had no health care for years, but as preventative care becomes more available, will even out #RNCHAT 3/26/2010 21:46 ali_rn: @nursingpins good point! #rnchat #hcr 3/26/2010 21:46 tactile: @Aggiern95 T1 improving prenatal care, preventative care from birth would help lower overall cost of health for centuries to come. #RNCHAT 3/26/2010 21:46

Sin Taxes monitize sin, not stop it. #RNChat 3/26/2010 22:09 tactile: @oncnurse66 T2 It would stop at foods with actual nutritional value.

You shouldnt "friend" a patient personally but a health care group is different #RNchat 3/26/2010 22:35 mikerosenberg9: RT @oncnurse66: @rnchat my hospital has recommended us NOT to be "friends" with patients on SM #RNchat 3/26/2010 22:36 tactile: @nursingpins T3 I have been a volunteer member of an ask a nurse blog for 5 years. Social media has a place in prevention. #RNCHAT 3/26/2010 22:36 rnchat: @oncnurse66 T3 I think that at this time, most hospitals block social media sites because the staff use them for themselves! #RNchat 3/26/2010 22:36 mkopp1: #rnchat spaced on the chat tonight...I swear one of these days life will let me join again. 3/26/2010 22:36 oncnurse66: @rnchat as do I some patients can become "stalkers" : } #rnchat 3/26/2010 22:37 nursekama: T3 Tools like Telehealth (http://tinyurl.com/ydzywha) will be useful in Web 2.0 form. Access to an RN 24/7 for health advice. #rnchat 3/26/2010 22:37 rnchat: @tactile T3 Can you share that blog link with us? #RNchat 3/26/2010 22:37 RNconsult: @rnchat I find Social Media is a excellent vehicle for targeting health populations...ie Health maintainence #RNchat 3/26/2010 22:37 nursingpins: @tactile YES a big and important place - but more important for the providers at this point. #RNchat 3/26/2010 22:37 tactile: @oncnurse66 t3 I completely agree with that. I do not give out personal info to pts. #RNCHAT 3/26/2010 22:38 mkopp1: T3 maybe replace the nurses' line and have a live chat. #rnchat 3/26/2010 22:38 tactile: @nursingpins t3 Social Media has really improved my access to nursing education online. Twitter keeps me up to date. #RNCHAT 3/26/2010 22:39 Aggiern95: @rnchat @oncnurse66 T3 - I agree you should not 'friend' a pt. The use of groups pages will provide an online support comm for pts #RNchat 3/26/2010 22:39
  12. 12. happyfish103: RT @tactile: Healthy food should be subsidized N poorer areas to be affordable. If you're going to tax unhealthy food, make good food affordable. #RNCHAT 3/26/2010 22:39 tactile: @RNchat It is the ask_a_nurse community on Livejournal. Several years ago, a group of RNs, including myself, took it over. #RNchat 3/26/2010 22:40 RNconsult: "Intelligent Consumerism".... In #Health Care may be the Web ?!!! http://www.nytimes.com/2009/10/06/technology/06bosworth.html?_r=1 #RNchat 3/26/2010 22:41 tactile: @rnchat T3 A big part of what we do is link ppl with low cost clinics in their area and confirm if they need to be seen. #RNCHAT 3/26/2010 22:41 nursingpins: @tactile - has helped all nurses who are looking - still tip of the berg though (potential) #RNchat 3/26/2010 22:42 rnchat: T3 @tactile I totally agree about Twitter opening up new avenues for knowledge attainment! Its just amazing #RNchat 3/26/2010 22:42 nursekama: T3 Another issue besides boundaries includes: how do you ensure you're really dialoguing with a nurse via social media? #rnchat 3/26/2010 22:42 tactile: @nursekama t3 On our ask_a_nurse blog, we had an imposter. After that, each moderator has to give full name, license to other mods. #RNCHAT 3/26/2010 22:43 RNconsult: @tactile " Ask a Nurse "......Great Format!!! #RNchat 3/26/2010 22:44 nursingpins: @tactile your work is an example of things to come on a big scale (great!) #RNchat 3/26/2010 22:44 tactile: @nursekama T3 we also confirmed via IP addresses that ppl were where they stated, and consulted with US and Canadian attys. #RNCHAT 3/26/2010 22:44 mikerosenberg9: @nursekama T3 - there are ways to verify users on twitter but extra steps would have to be taken to be sure advice is good. #RNchat 3/26/2010 22:44 rnchat: @nursekama T3 Great point about validation behind a screen name! I'm sure there will be ways to verify an acct for the public to see #RNchat 3/26/2010 22:44 nursekama: @tactile T3 That's great! Glad to hear you were able to overcome that issue. Thanks for sharing. :) #rnchat 3/26/2010 22:45 tactile: @RNconsult I really just wanted to save ppl money and time. We've helped ppl treat wounds,when we send ppl to the ER, they need it. #RNCHAT 3/26/2010 22:45
  13. 13. tactile: @nursekama It was difficult, but after we had the 1 imposter, necessary. Also, it's actually hard to impersonate medical training. #RNCHAT 3/26/2010 22:46 mikerosenberg9: @tactile sounds like you have been involved in lots of great IT projects that let your nursing talents shine! #RNchat 3/26/2010 22:47 rnchat: As always, friends, this hour (and some) has gone by in a blink! Please continue to chat on any of the topics we discussed! #RNchat 3/26/2010 22:47 tactile: @mikerosenberg9 Yes, but the truth is I HATE IT. I left IT to become a nurse. Still, I'm the go to girl for computer problems. Sigh. #RNCHAT 3/26/2010 22:48 nursekama: I'm signing off, thanks for the great conversation all (as usual!).

To be honest I enjoy helping people! #RNchat 3/26/2010 22:50 oncnurse66: RT @NursingCenter: @rnchat Thanks Ellen! I must sign off now ~ great discussions gang!
