This week to celebrate the 100th episode of Good Nurse Bad Nurse Tina and Kiki will have a bonus discussion at the end of the episode about New Grads! But first, they discuss the absolutely horrifying story of a psych nurse who was suffering from mental illness himself and spent years tormenting his coworkers. Denis Czajkowski became so paranoid of his coworkers and his boss in particular that it eventually lead to him going back to the hospital where he was fired and holding two women hostage for two days. The good nurse story is about an amazing and courageous woman who didn't like the military's policy of having a limit of how many black nurses were allowed to serve..so she did something about it. They close the show with a special 30 minute discussion dedicated to new grads! Be sure and let us know what you think!

Kiki is back once again to co-host with Tina. Together they tell the incredibly disturbing story of Cathy Wood and Gwendolyn Graham. Cathy and Gwendolyn were two nurse techs who had some horrific games they liked to play together that involved the elderly patients they were supposed to be caring for at the the nursing home where they worked together. They close the show with a different kind of good nurse story. Our good nurse this week had the courage to stand up to a patient who requested to not have a black nurse caring for her. Teoka Williams was working as a bedside nurse when a patient complained about having a black nurse. When Ms. Williams complained about the incident she was reassigned to a different patient and was told the patient had the right to refuse care for whatever reason.

Mike with Simple Nursing is back once again to co-host! Tina and Mike tell the story of Valerie McDaniel, a veterinarian from Houston, Texas, who got tangled up with the wrong guy, Leon Jacob. Jacob had graduated from medical school but wasn't able to complete his residency. This story is as tragic as it is inexplicable and you will not believe how many twists and turns it takes before ending in devastation. They close the show with the inspiring story of Frederick Douglass Patterson. Dr. Patterson had multiple degrees including a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine and had so many accomplishments in his life there isn't enough time to discuss them all!

This week Tina is excited to have a pediatric oncology nurse, David Metzger with her to talk about all sorts of interesting things. They start off the show discussing David's book, Nurse Papa, that will be coming out in the next few months. Of course it wouldn't be Good Nurse Bad Nurse without a true crime story, so they discuss a story about an EMT who decided married life was just not enough of an adrenaline rush for him. However, rather than leave his wife, he had other plans that would take him to the south east beaches of Florida. They close the show with a story about an EMT whose quick thinking helped save the arm of a very disturbed man.
