That is why foo looks ridiculous calling a D & C "an abortion procedure". Like I said many have D & C s and they arent even pregnant.
He's trying to claim the process of the pregnancy ending has something to do with the D&C procedure.

His link is about induced and/or spontaneous "abortions", not about the D&C procedure.

He thinks he's proven something but I'm not sure what he thinks he's proven, since we already know what "abortion" is, whether induced or spontaneous. We also know a D&C isn't an induced abortion procedure when used to treat a spontaneous abortion/miscarriage.

Nothing.
Do you ever work? You said that you were contemplating going on food stampsntoo.Why not go work? Anywhere for that matted?
When did you go to school even if you are on here round the clock?
You're right that nothing she says here medically proves she' a nurse. She and the other who claims to have gone to nursing school don't understand that a D&C procedure for a spontaneous abortion is NOT charted as an "abortion". Only induced abortions are charted that way. Therefore, when a D&C is used for any reason other than an induced abortion, it is NOT charted as an abortion as Foo claimed and Bitner chimed in her agreement.

I'm sorry, Stupid Sassy, but if your husband's penis is stationary inside your vagina, he's doing it wrong.

Of course, if heeded, this sort of plea serves to reduce the numbers of nurses, but not the need for more....and there will always be a need, especially as populations continue to grow....and grow...and grow...and grow....
Hi, sis! There is an increase in graduate nurses due to community colleges expanding their programs and more private nursing programs sprouting up everywhere. The concern is whether or not the newly accredited schools are graduating capable nurses or just teaching to the NCLEX.

LMAO! Exactly, the whole time the client is flinging the feces at you, you are assessing their physiological/safety/psychosoc ial status. And you wanna know something? I wouldn't trade jobs with anyone :-)

Of course, if there's no pregnancy, there is no pregnancy to abort. Can you name who is saying that all D&Cs are abortions of pregnancy in a short, succinct post? Please don't write one of your tedious essays :-!

Exactly what we've been saying. So why are you and your friends arguing about it? You're arguing just to argue and not telling us anything we don't already know.
The rest of what you said is irrelevant to the first sentence you wrote, and the point we PLers have been making.
My dear little woman, relax and be quiet for one moment. Since you obviously know very little about what goes on my side of the hospital desk, I can't assume that you know anything about what charts are on the rack and what charts are in the permanent files. And, from what you write, you don't know much. You are very closed-minded and you need to feel that you are the "winner" of every conversation in which you insert yourself. That attitude makes you a perpetual loser. Lighten up, girl.

I agree with you on that. However, maybe there is technical terminology which supports Foo's statement. Not being in Women's Health, I don't know all the particulars of that specialty. Does it matter all that much?

What do you do for a living, honey? I don't see that you're have any skills or education in anything on here, but I figure you must have some ability and vocation. I mostly at work at night, silly. If you actually looked before you spewed, you would see that I have an ever changing schedule. You want my story? Here you go, you little busybody: As for school, I graduated in April, worked my old job full time for the summer, took and passed the NCLEX in Sept, and was just offered my first nursing job this week, to be starting in a week or two. I will be working three to four 12-hour, overnight shifts/week. The food stamps conversation took place months ago, love. Luckily, I got my hours back at my old job, so I didn't need assistance. See, some of us are living and loving a life that moves, progresses, grows. Others, I guess like you, are living,enduring a life that stagnates.You seem to be very angry, unhappy and unfulfilled. I'm sorry :-\ Now, would you like to dispel my preconception of you and your life, as I did for you?

No one said a D&C for a spontaneous abortion was an elective abortion. Everyone has been telling you the procedure, the D&C is the exact same procedure done during an elective abortion. If a woman electively aborts medically or surgically she has to return to make sure it's complete. Her uterus will be scraped by dilation and curettage. The same dilation and curettage that a woman would get if she spontaneously aborted. No one that I've seen has said that a spontaneous abortion is the same as an elective. We've been saying the procedure to scrape the uterus is the same and you and Lil are the ones saying it's for different reasons such as infection. It is not for different reasons, both are abortions whether it's natural or not, both will require a D&C and it's for the same reason, to make sure the abortion is complete. Now, when it comes to charting and coding it will specify Elective or Spontaneous abortion but the procedure is the same.

Wow, I'm flattered that you monitor my movements, and a little creeped out. However, you are woefully bad at it. Your "facts" are all wrong. Romney, is that you?

Did you totally ignore the fact that she and I and others have said repeatedly that it will be charted as a spontaneous abortion if there is a miscarriage and an elective abortion if it's an elective abortion?

I'm middle-aged, so I won't be on the job long enough to get burnt out. Anyway, if you want to do this, I recommend you go for your bachelor's degree. We all will be expected to have a BSN, soon.
Really? Why a BSN? Technological advances?
