To my amazement, more than comments have since been left by former patients, doctors and nurses, and residents who lived in the area when Rockland Psych was in operation. I wanted to share a selection of these with you, to allow those who knew Rockland Psych firsthand to tell its story. I performed at Rockland Psych with my middle school chorus 17 years ago. I remember being really nervous to go there…Once we were inside, it looked almost exactly like your pictures, seriously chipped walls…I remember one man throwing fake grenades at us, another man removed for masturbating in his chair as we sang, and an old woman who wept loudly the entire time we performed. I have no idea how the school got away with taking us there, but they did. At Christmastime of , my junior high school band played a concert of holiday music for the patients at the hospital.

BBW Birth Stories: C-Section Stories
Male Urinary Catheterization A male patient will lie on his back, with his legs bent at the knees and flopping slightly to the side as the nurse or doctor insert his foley catheter. His meatus urethral opening and surrounding area will be cleaned with Betadine before the foley catheter insertion by the nurse or doctor. The meatus is at the tip of the penis. The nurse will hold and lift the penis to a position perpendicular to patient's body and apply light upward traction to insert the catheter. This is a very invasive procedure and embarrassing for many male patients. Keep in mind that urinary catheterizations are often unnecessary. Do not allow a catheter to be inserted unless it is absolutely necessary.

The answer is often attributed to images of scantily clad nurses in short white uniforms and high heels, appearing in print, video and advertising.
You woke up with a burning sore throat, and your mom says you need to go have it checked. But before the doctor even makes you say aaahhh, there's probably someone else you'll see first: Nurses are important people. Not only are they often the first health care professional that a sick or injured person sees, but they do their job in all kinds of settings — from local hospitals to faraway military bases.
