First, Do No Harm….

As a nurse and a healthcare professional, one of the most common retorts used against us is the phrase “First, Do No Harm.” It’s often used in a reference to the individual claiming that we, as healthcare professionals, have taken oaths to have our first and foremost focus to “do no harm.” The reality is, most nurses don’t take oaths, […]

How is this content against “community standards”?

Earlier today, one of the authors for One Vaxxed Nurse shared a heartfelt message for someone who had messaged us. Facebook decided to take that message down, as they felt it violated “community standards,” yet they gave no indication on what standard this post breached or what the violation was referencing.

Caring Corrupted? I call it Evidence Based Medicine.

The below is a screenshot of a comment made to One Vaxxed Nurse on Twitter. An anti-vaxxer by the screenname “concerned parent” equated nurses advocating for vaccination to nurses who assisted in the torture and killing of Jews during the Holocaust. In this Ill informed comment, the poster warned that nurses who get “stuck in ideology” may forget their humanity- […]

The untold story about Stop Mandatory Vaccinations and harassment…

Earlier this week, we covered a situation where a mother was expressing her pain as her child had been exposed to measles. In her plea, she begs others to consider that their choice to not vaccinate their children does, in fact, place others at risk. Choices which affected her infant, who is too young to be vaccinated against the Measles […]
