If I had a son, he’d look like Trayvon (comment)

March 30, 2012

I wholeheartedly disagree with your position that we should not be public in our protest. And that we should follow the slow governmental procedures regarding public injustices.

If I had a son, he’d look like Trayvon also. I also am an Afro-American working for a governmental agency handling forensics.

One big recent example of a need for public participation, is with the pilot who had a meltdown on a JetBlue plane. Are you saying, we as citizens should not do something about a public injustice? Should we have called the governmental authorities and let them handle it? Should we let the scene run its course, then contact the authorities after the incident? I say no. I say when there is a danger to ourselves and others, we should react. When that danger is immediately before our eyes, we should react. Or whether that dangers is before us politically, morally, ethically, or socially we should react. Social injustice can cause just as much harm as physical injustice (killing).

Forensic Photography

March 29, 2012

Forensic Photography Recently I had the opportunity to document a child abuse case and follow through with the incident from triage straight through resolution. I actually had the opportunity to put to practical use what I have been studying in the texts. Although obtaining photographs is not new to our facility, we do have a stricter policy and procedure in place, including a photo log that has to be documented along with the digital camera cassette. These are sent to medical records for development and labeling. Although the child had five injuries from a supposed fall off a couch against a coffee table, the injuries were circumferential about the skull. We measured and documented all the wounds and ended up taking twelve photographs to get good resolution of some of the sites. In retrospect, however, I realize that we should have had the tape measure in the picture itself. That is something I will address next time I take pictures. We obtained consent from the mother (which was documented), obtained the investigator’s name, CPS worker name, etc., and otherwise I think we did a fairly good job. In the end, the officer felt he had enough of a case to arrest the significant other of the child’s mother for abuse. Since all the injuries were either abrasions or ecchymotic areas, only “before” photos were taken, i.e. before the CT scan, since no intervention other than antibiotic ointment was needed. Supposedly, per the mother’s initial report, the child, who was 15 months old, had fallen off the couch and hit her head on the coffee table, sustaining and abrasion above her left eye. She also had a 3 cm ecchymotic area on her sphenoid wing. This is a believable story. However, on examination, I noticed, an ecchymotic area laterals to her right orbit, petechial abrasions on the inner auricle (not on the pinna at all) of her right ear, and a 4 cm petechial-like abrasion on her right occiput. When I questioned the mother about this, she calmly responded that “she falls a lot.” I asked her if she was delayed in her walking, and she said yes. To me, this was unusual. Most toddlers are up and running by this time. Even my youngest son, who had 2 older siblings who loved to carry him around, was running the halls by this time. I had been concerned because my oldest was walking at 8 months, while this one didn’t feel compelled to start until 13 months, but then there was no stopping him! Her story just did not make sense to me. The ear injury was also odd. How can a child only injure the inside of the ear without abrading the pinna? For this reason, I took about 3 shots of the ear alone. The digital cameras are nice because they have the close up feature to focus and we got some really good shots. Hopefully, we obtained some credible evidence for prosecution. References Lynch, Virginia A. and Duval, Janet Barber. (2006). Forensic Nursing. St. Louis: Elsevier Mosby.

If I had a son he’d look like Trayvon

March 28, 2012

I am an Afro-American and proud of it. If I had a son he’d look like Trayvon.

I am also a forensic nurse. This is not going to be easy to say. The parents of Trayvon Martin and the community should not make a media protest against the legal system. A protest can be made in a personal method. I realize that there a questions about the Sanford Police Department handling of the case. But there are governmental methods to make the protest known.

It is possible the forensic teams, FL State Attorney’s office, U.S. Justice Department, and others may show the shooting of Trayvon Martin as not unjust and not racially motivated. This type of announcement will be difficult to emotionally accept.

If the above announcement is made, this will hurt our Afro-American community when we need to address similar injustices. There have been and will continue to be factual and provable injustices.

If there is an announcement saying that the youth Trayvon Martin’s death in unjust, this will bring some emotional relief to the family and community. This announcement with its investigation could and can be obtain by the governmental and procedural methods established.

Legalization of Marijuana, comment

March 27, 2012

I saw the Judge Judy show yesterday. I don’t like the way she and the guest made fun of marijuana growers. It is legal for us to grow weed in California. I would have thought Judge Judy would realize and accept this especially since she tapes her shows in CA. I would think that the audience is from CA also. I wonder if the audience was given cue cards to laugh about the 2 pot growers that were on the show yesterday.

We grow a lot of things that other states don’t grow. Oranges are grown here. I do not hear about people laughing because we grow oranges. I think we should be treated with respect.

Healthcare Informatics Employment, comment

March 26, 2012

RE: Healthcare Informatics Employment, comment

Thank you for pointing out the variations in employment search terms. My search results are listed below.

forensic nursing help wanted
279,000

forensic nursing jobs
678,000

forensic nursing openings
736,000

forensic nursing opportunities
788,000

forensic nursing employment
1,400,000

forensic nursing occupations
7,480,000

My brain is very surprised at the results. For many years “Help Wanted” signs could be seen on doors and windows of businesses. Perhaps there are differences between Internet, newspaper, and physical sign terms. “Occupations” appear to be a general term about open positions and general descriptions. “Employment” should lead toward the specifics of open positions.

Trayvon Martin’s manner of death

March 21, 2012

Trayvon Martin is the 17-year-old youth who was killed by George Zimmerman (a 28-year-old man). This happened on February 26, 2012.

There is a Death Investigation proceeding. From a forensic nurse perspective, I want to know if this is a criminal or noncriminal homicide. It appears the local law enforcement agency is considering it a pending noncriminal homicide while an investigation is ongoing. This does not mean that it cannot be changed to a criminal homicide later.

With the U.S. Justice Department looking into this case, it will take longer to find a conclusion. Also with emotions very strong across the country, a conclusion will not be quick.
