Hi everyone ^_^ My name is Kimberlin Ann. Welcome to my blog

See, unlike the rest of the free world, I didn't get here by accident. And if your parents have you for a reason, then that reason better exist. Because once it's gone, so are you.


I enjoy watching the sky, sunset and the stars. It makes me more relaxed and forget about all my worries.

I have Scoleciphobia. So bear with me if I panic when I see those things.

Usually I am silent, but if you talk, the game has just begun :)

I gave up a lot of things for me to start a new life in this new place.

I enjoy laughing.

I love when two people look at the same thing but see something different.

I get overly excited about small things.

I miss living by the beach.

Perfect is boring

I go with the flow.

I like to be organized.

Reading is one of my favorite things to do.

Call me weird, but I do believe that aliens once inhabit in our planet.

I'm skeptical about December 21, 2012

You'll never see me anywhere during the daytime. I'm a night person :)

Stopping time through photography.

“You process a lot of information without your awareness. For instance, when you read this, you don’t notice much of the background when in reality your subconscious mind picks up background info. This is also why sometimes when you dream, you dream about things that you may have seen (but you just don’t realize it).”

Hello nurses!

How are you all doing? It’s been raining in California the past few days, and obviously it’s been very cold. Keep yourselves warm and please stay safe!


Love and rockets,

Nocturnal nurse

“As a Nurse Educator, I am troubled by the hypocrisy that sometimes exists in our profession; students are encouraged to prioritize quality of care, yet when they graduate, they are expected to function as a ‘speed nurse,’ barely making the finishing line in the marathon that is each day. More patients compromising the safety of both the nurse and the patient, less time exploring root cause of symptoms, and sometimes less time being able to enjoy the art of caring for the person on a very basic level. As a bedside nurse, I urge hospital administrators, and fellow Professors to return to the bedside periodically - as an important reminder of the basics of nursing, versus speed nursing”

This is so true. Our DON has put a new labor grid out requiring night shift nurses to take up to 9 patients and the day shift nurses are taking 6 patients. This makes it hard to provide compassionate care when you are scrambling to get all the tasks done. I am not sure how to keep a personal interest in each patient when a nurse doesn’t have time to look up from their checklist of things to do.

9 patients?! That’s outrageous.

I don’t care what shift you work, that is too many. I honestly think the people that create these labor grids should shadow floor nurses for several shifts before they make these outrageous decisions. It’s obvious that they have either never worked as a floor nurse or haven’t in a very long time. Having that many patient’s per nurse may save money initially, but they hospital is going to end up paying when these overworked and thinly stretched nurses make a (probably avoidable if they had more time to think) mistake that ends up negatively affecting the patient.
