Woman Becomes Nurse Practitioner at Same Hospital Where She Was Once a Custodian: ‘Worth It!’

The Inspiring Story of How One Woman Went From Custodian to Trauma Surgery Nurse Practitioner

Jaines Andrades worked her way up at Baystate Medical Center and says “At one point, I dreamed of the position I have today.”

A Massachusetts woman is showing the world the true meaning of perseverance after she worked her way up from being a custodian at a local hospital to now treating its patients as a nurse practitioner.

Ten years ago, Jaines Andrades started her career at Baystate Medical Center working in environmental services, where she cleaned up operating rooms as a janitor, Meredith Corporation station WGGB reported.

Today, instead of cleaning the operating rooms, she is one of the leaders inside them as a certified nurse practitioner in trauma surgery, according to the outlet.

“At one point, I dreamed of the position I have today,” Andrades told WGGB of her incredible journey, which started when she was just 19 years old.

In 2014 — four years after Andrades began her career at Baystate as a custodian — the Springfield resident earned her nursing degree, WGGB reported.

She continued working in environmental services until an opportunity to work as a registered nurse arose.

“I stayed, actually, in environmental, despite being a nurse because I didn’t immediately get a nursing job at Baystate, so I wanted to keep my foot in the door,” she explained to the outlet.

Eventually, Andrades decided to go back to school to become a nurse practitioner (NP) and once she completed her degree, was offered a job at Baystate yet again.

“Once I start something, I have to see it through, so if I’m going to be a custodian and then be a nurse, it only makes sense to be a nurse practitioner there,” she told WGGB of working at Baystate all these years.

On Sept. 28, Andrades reflected on the accomplishment by posting a photo of her three work badges on Facebook. Though they all have her name and photo on them, each one has her different job title and shows Andrades’ career progression over the years.

“10 years of work but it was worth it! I’m a provider at the same place I use to clean,” she captioned the post, which has been shared over 10,000 times and liked over 12,000 times.

Reflecting on her career, Andrades told WGGB that having such diverse experiences at the Springfield medical center has kept her humble while interacting with others.

“I remember those times where I saw interactions as a custodian to remind myself that everyone’s human,” she explained. “Your academic success or your professional success, obviously, it deserves praise and you should be proud of that, but it doesn’t make you a better person.”

“As a human being,” she

The Keto Diet Might Be Worth A Shot If You’re Dealing With PCOS Symptoms

From Women’s Health

Having polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) can affect a lot of different areas of your life. Among other things, PCOS can impact your weight, and a lot of questions come up about the best way to manage PCOS weight gain via your diet. One frequently searched query? Whether the keto diet is a good eating method to help manage PCOS weight gain and other symptoms.

Before we get into that, it’s important to go over some PCOS basics. PCOS is a health condition caused by an imbalance of reproductive hormones, according to the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services’ Office on Women’s Health (OWH). This hormone imbalance causes problems in the ovaries, which make an egg that’s released each month as part of your menstrual cycle. When you have PCOS, the egg might not develop the way it should, or it might not be released during ovulation, according to the OWH.

PCOS can cause a range of symptoms, including irregular periods, infertility, excess hair growth, severe acne, and weight gain, per the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG). As many as four in five women with PCOS deal with weight issues in conjunction with the condition, ACOG says.

PCOS may be managed with medical interventions like hormonal birth control pills. But lifestyle management, like losing even a little weight, may also help alleviate symptoms, according to ACOG.

And that’s where the keto diet question comes up a lot. Here’s what you need to know about how the keto diet can impact PCOS symptoms.

Is following the keto diet beneficial if you have PCOS?

There’s a lot to dig into here. People with PCOS often deal with insulin resistance, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). This means that the body can make insulin, which helps blood sugar enter the body’s cells to provide energy, but can’t use it effectively. Insulin resistance increases the risk of developing type 2 diabetes. Insulin resistance can also lead to patches of thickened, velvety, darkened skin, a condition known as acanthosis nigricans, and this commonly occurs with PCOS, per ACOG.

So, how does the keto diet factor in here? The keto diet is an eating plan that focuses on minimizing your carbs and increasing your fat intake to get your body to use fat as a form of energy. People on the keto diet usually have no more than 50 grams of carbs a day, but some keto fans aim to have no more than 20 grams a day.

As you may (or may not) know, carbs convert into glucose (sugar) in the body, and insulin is needed to take that sugar to your cells for energy. Limiting your carb intake—like you would on the keto diet—can help relieve the insulin resistance that can occur as a result of having PCOS, but likely only for the short term, says Scott Keatley, RD, of Keatley Medical Nutrition Therapy. However, building lean body mass (read: muscle) and losing

Discover The Worth Of Previous Antique Bottles

These are body temperature lowering medicines in case of excessive fever. There at the moment are more patients coming to Dr. Estuita for the elimination of Hepatitis B virus, Dr. Estuita informed me in a phone interview. They’re drawn from the pack and place downwards on the 4 cardinal points of the medicine wheel basic directional degree position, in the order of East, south, west , north.

Generally, medieval medicine was a mix of ancient physiology, empirical knowledge of the results of some drugs, medical superstition and the charlatanism of apothecaries. Medicine could also be classified on the idea of symptoms or ailments in which they’re used.

Maintain them in front of you and give attention to the balance of your male self (proper)and your female self left(left)and observe silently the connection or lack of connection between the feminine and the male and above, To assist steadiness them it’s possible you’ll call upon the medicine of the creature one by one You should definitely enter the silence and allow the animal to speak.

Blood-letting was believed to drive out evil spirits; due to this fact, the procedure was performed by a priest, which was also a doctor at the moment. That’s, the doctor can’t reveal if someone is infected with hepa B virus or not to simply anybody, besides in fact to the patient or proxy.

I also agree that animal testing must be banned, as a result of it’s animal cruelty, there are other ways to check medicine, and animals react in a different way than people do. It’s not vital that Dr. Estuita conducts the research himself but someone who shares the framework (free radical theories of illness) and passion for the well being of individuals.…
