PALO ALTO, Calif. (KGO) -- Bay Area nurses are expressing concern over an ICU training plan announced By Governor Gavin Newsom on Monday.
"We're looking at training RNs, this two-day, very effective, focused to training to speed up opportunities to bring nurses into the ICUs to help out patients that's being rolled out as well," Newsom said at Monday's press conference, detailing the state's strategy to prepare for surging COVID-19 numbers.
"How To Convince 50,000 Doctors and 200,000 Nurses That You're So Dumb You Don't Know How Blisteringly Dumb You Are".
Apparently next week, CA Gov. Gabbin' Nuisance will also roll out his 5-minute EMT course, his 1 hour paramedic class, and his 5-day brain surgeon program. But this explains how he became governor by collecting enough soda cans and boxtops.
I'm also pretty sure that for going on 30 years, if you have an IQ over 80, you're not allowed to go into politics in this state.
FTR, as stated in the news report, (which amazingly contains actual news) it does, indeed, take a minimum of 6-12 months to train a nurse to function minimally in the ICU, and 2-3 years of practice there to be fully competent at that job.
Suggesting, even if one were high on crack and drunk as hell, that any nurse could be turned loose in any ICU after 2 days, even if they meant a full 48 hours of training, is so asinine as to be beyond even my encyclopedic command of profanity to adequately describe. (But in my defense, if I ever come face-to-face with this asshole, I'll give it a herculean effort.)
Gabbin' Nuisance, Alzheimer Nancy's obviously retarded nephew, demonstrates yet again that no amount of shit will adequately substitute for brains, and this is just the latest proof of concept.
