Got Pink? Celebrate Breast Cancer Awareness Month!

Medical Solutions Pink Out

Medical Solutions’ Omaha office recognizes Breast Cancer Awareness month with our annual Pink Out Day!

Last October, in recognition of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Medical Solutions shared the story of one of our most beloved team members, Amber Barna, BSN, RN, Clinical Director of Nursing at Medical Solutions. Amber is a brave breast cancer survivor, amazing leader, and just generally a wonderfully infectious ray of sunshine within the Medical Solutions family.

The San Diego office gets their pink on!

This year, Medical Solutions had our annual Pink Out Day recognizing Breast Cancer Awareness Month, so I’ve shared a few of our Pink Out pics with you in this blog. In honor of Amber’s story, and breast cancer survivors everywhere, I’d also like to share a really cool effort by The Kroger Company to help their employees tell their survivor stories.

At, Kroger hosts a collection of “Stories of Courage” from their team members who’ve bravely fought breast cancer. Their stories take them from stunning, scary diagnoses to hard-fought battles to cancer-free status, and each one of them is truly an inspiration! One uniting factor of these stories, much like Amber’s, is that these survivors gain a new appreciation and sense of gratefulness for life.

Here are a few of their quotes:

“Cancer brought me to my knees … then it brought me to my feet.” — Linda

“It’s a beautiful world on the other side of cancer!” — Cindy

“I found a reserve of inner strength that I never thought possible.” — Sharon

“Every day I find another reason to be thankful.” —Tina

“Since breast cancer, I’ve learned not to stress about things in life.” — Carolyn

Medical Solutions Pink Out

The Tupelo team is thinking pink!

Kroger, which has a vast family of stores under different names nationwide, also uses their platform to generate funds for organizations that fight breast cancer. You can enter your current zip code on their site to see how much money they’ve generated for your current local area. Mine was $78,500 in 2015! And all of that money stayed in local organizations that continue to lobby for breast cancer awareness and fight hard for a cure.

As a Traveler, it’s pretty cool to think that you can help make an impact in tons of locations across the nation!

As you recognize Breast Cancer Awareness Month, make sure to check out Amber’s inspirational story as well as those of the survivors featured by Sharing Courage!

Christine chasin’ waterfalls in the good way!

Instead of a car, Christine just bought her first moped in Hawaii to get around town and explore.

“I get to travel the globe for my job!,” she says.

Christine offers some great advice for newer Travelers:

  1. Ask a lot of questions of other Travel Nurses.

Thanks for your hard work and awesome advice, Christine!

Medical Solutions Rising Star Lora C

Rising Star Lora C. LOVES playing outside!

Lora loves playing outside, and fittingly, she’s been a Grand Canyon River Guide for 23 years! She has an eclectic batch of interests — for example, she also plays old-time string band music on both the fiddle and the banjo.

Lora also loves the freedom and exploration that come with being a Travel Nurse, plus she loves constantly learning new things as she goes.

“I love to travel and explore new areas, learning new things professionally and regionally,” she says. “I also love the flexibility and meeting new people.”

Clinical Corner: The Flu, the Flu Vaccine and You

Get Your Flu Shot

It’s that time of year again!

By Chris Vinton, Medical Solutions Quality Assurance Specialist

October is one of the best months of the year. Pumpkin Spice season is in full swing, haunted houses are up and running, the holidays are on the horizon, Halloween costumes are being bought for dogs, the weather is comfortable for the most part, and, for some reason, some stores are already playing “Rudolf the Red Nosed Reindeer.”

October also marks the beginning of flu season. Here is what you need to know about the flu, the flu vaccine, and Medical Solutions’ requirements regarding the flu vaccine.

Flu season starts in October and continues until April, though flu activity can last through May. Usually, flu season peaks from December through March. The CDC recommends flu vaccines for anyone over the age of six months — and if you’re reading this, you are either over six months or a very, very impressive baby.

This flu season, the CDC is not recommending the active virus nasal spray. Last season, the nasal spray was nowhere near as effective as the regular flu shot. The flu vaccine will not make you completely immune to the flu, it will help your body build up antibodies and severely reduce the chances of you getting the flu. The vaccine will also not make you sick, the virus will be completely dead by the time it reaches you. If you are allergic to eggs or have had a severe allergic reaction to flu vaccines, gelatin, antibiotics or other ingredients, talk to your primary care physician before considering a flu vaccine.

Get your flu shot and avoid this sneezy, sniffly fate!

Medical Solutions requires a flu vaccination for every traveler in October or before starting a travel assignment during flu season. If you are allergic to the flu vaccine or cannot receive the flu vaccine due to religious reasons, we will require a declination form from your primary care physician or a clergy member. We require a flu vaccination for every Traveler because the flu virus effects the entire country and the flu vaccine should help defend you no matter where you travel to. The flu vaccine does take a few weeks to work, your body slowly builds up antibodies. That is why we require the flu vaccine in October or before starting any assignment during flu season. The better protected you are from the flu, the better protected your patients and coworkers will be!

There is a ton of really cool flu information on the CDC website. Everything from the effectiveness of flu vaccines, to the methodology for the flu information and even a Twitter campaign for flu awareness and vaccines.

For the general overview on the CDC’s flu page, click here.

You can get more info about the flu from the CDC’s flu FAQs and stay current on how the season is affecting the U.S. with their live map of flu activity by state.

Thanks for doing your part to keep the herd healthy! If you have any questions about Medical Solutions’ flu vaccine requirements, please feel free to contact your Career Consultant.

Congrats to July 2016’s Traveler of the Month and Rising Star!

Travel Nurse Lee U. at Moab

July Traveler of the Month, Lee U., explores the Colorado River in beautiful Moab!

Many thanks and congrats to the July 2016 Traveler of the Month, Lee U., and also our Rising Star winner, Meaghan L.!

Traveler of the Month Lee is an RN, BSN, CCRN specializing in ICU and ER. He works with Career Consultant Erin A. and is currently on assignment in beautiful western Oregon. Lee’s in his 21st year of nursing, having traveled six years straight, as well as an additional three years periodically earlier in his career.

Lee travels solo, but returns home often during assignments to see his “wife, kids, cats, dog, rat, chickens, and lizards.” In addition to having a uniquely full house of human and animal loved ones, Lee is also unique in that he only purchases cars with a stick shift. ( Hey, me too, Lee! But we’re definitely a rare breed 🙂 )

Travel Nurse Lee U. Family Yellowstone

Lee’s wife and daughters excitedly “flirt with danger” in front of a buffalo at Yellowstone.

“I truly have not not liked any place I’ve been,” says Lee. “Perhaps some of the hospitals were less desirable, but one of the beauties of Travel Nursing is that we are in a different location regularly and get to explore the area, see new things, meet new people, and this aspect is completely separate from the job.”

“I love Travel Nursing for the fact that I get to meet so many people and am never tethered to weather a circumstance that is painfully undesirable,” says Lee. “As Travelers, we can move on whenever we want.”

Lee offers three great tips for new and prospective Travelers:

  1. “They don’t care very much how it was where you were, so when in Rome do as the Romans do.”
  2. “Anyone can stay positive and smile for 13 weeks. If it’s hard, for whatever reason, fake it. You get to leave soon, they don’t.”
  3. “If you find yourself in a position to Travel Nurse: enjoy yourself, don’t work yourself into the ground (like I often do), mix up making good money with learning about new areas and people … I know that’s pretty obvious, but not to everyone. Enjoy traveling!!”

Thanks for the helpful advice and for being so awesome, Lee!

Travel Nurse Meaghan L

Rising Star Meaghan L. and her adorable pup Casey explore Reflection Lake near Mount Rainier in Washington.

Rising Star Meaghan is an RN specializing in ICU & PACU who’s been in nursing for 8+ years and traveling nearly a year — she was an Active Duty Army Nurse for more than seven years before switching to traveling. Her recruiter at Medical Solutions is Career Consultant Anthony H. and she’s currently on assignment in beautiful Boston.

Meaghan travels with her dog, Casey, who she says is “a great road trip buddy,” and her favorite location in her travels so far has been Seattle, Washington.

“I love the outdoors, and the mountains in Washington are absolutely beautiful,” she says. “The best part of Travel Nursing is having the opportunity to explore different parts of the country.”

Meaghan’s advice to fellow Travelers is to work hard, learn lots, and have fun.

“Travel Nursing is an incredibly rewarding and fun way to visit new areas. However, a steep learning curve and high level of expectation can be slightly intimidating, even to a seasoned nurse,” she says. “Working hard alongside fellow nurses and appreciating the opportunity to learn from different hospitals that I work for are major keys to my success as a Travel Nurse. And of course, of have fun!”

Thanks for the great advice and hard work, Meaghan!

Congratulations again to the Medical Solutions July 2016 Traveler of the Month and Rising Star! Lee and Meaghan, we are so grateful for your hard work, rock star skills, and commitment to providing excellent patient care!

Could you be the next Medical Solutions Traveler of the Month or Rising Star? Travelers who receive a perfect hospital evaluation are eligible to win these monthly awards — with Rising Star going to newer Medical Solutions Travelers.

Clinical Corner: It’s Hip to Follow HIPAA

HIPAA Requirements

It’s Hip to Follow HIPAA: Make sure you’re doing everything you can to best protect patient information.

By Chris Vinton, Medical Solutions Quality Assurance Specialist

Protecting patient information is a crucial part of patient care. Each patient’s information must be protected from his or her intake date all the way past the patient’s discharge date. HIPAA is a federal law that requires patient information to be protected as much as possible.

Patient information is a need to know basis. If someone doesn’t need to know, then don’t reveal the information. It can be easy to compromise a patient’s protected information, so you must be aware of what you are saying and to whom. Someone may overhear your conversation or you may accidently give too much information to whoever you are talking to. Unintentional HIPAA violations still incur a fine of $100 per offense. Some violations can cost up to $50,000 per offense — money much better spent on tacos.

So, how do you avoid spending hundreds or thousands of dollars in donations to the federal government? Simply, do not share patient information with people who do not need it. It certainly is much more complicated than it sounds, but awareness goes a long way. Making sure patient records match the patient, calling the patient at the correct number, and not giving out patient information are easy ways to prevent information breeches.

Closeup of fish tacos on plate

Wouldn’t you rather spend your money on these delicious tacos than on HIPAA fines? That’s just one more reason to follow HIPAA and keep patient info secure!

Technology has made patient care easier and faster, with some exceptions. However, technology has also made access to patient information easier, which is both good and bad. Make sure the computer you’re using is password protected and always lock computers when leaving them. Do not share your computer password with anyone. When emailing patient information, use a generic subject line. Even if the email is encrypted, the subject line will not be. Papers with patient information must be covered, put in a folder or put in a drawer. When disposing of any patient information that is on paper, shred the papers instead of throwing them in the regular trash can.

Every nurse has some great stories to tell — whether they are impressive or really gross. When telling these stories, leave out identifying details like the patient’s name, for example. Otherwise, it could lead back to the patient or someone who knows them. You never know who’s listening to your story and specific details could lead the person you’re talking to, or a person who is eavesdropping, back to the patient.

HIPAA is a constantly evolving law. There will always be new things to be aware of such as new technology, new charting systems, and there may even be new court cases that change HIPAA. If you see any HIPAA violations, you can report them on the HIPAA website. Always keep in mind that hospitals are always the last place people want to be in and some procedures can be very embarrassing to some people. Much of what nurses talk about is normal to them, but people outside of the medical profession can be appalled by the stories or if their own information was somehow leaked. Always make protecting your patient your main priority.

You can get more information about HIPAA or report a violation here.

Medical Solutions Has Your License to Adventure

State Licensure Reimbursement

Developing and practicing your nursing skills across state lines is easy when you travel with Medical Solutions. We’ll reimburse you for any state license and specialty certification fees you incur while on assignment.

During your time as a Travel Nurse, you’ve stacked up some pretty impressive stats — you’ve explored some amazing cities, met tons of new people, and sharpened your clinical skills. While it’s always fun to discover new places, many Travel Nurses quickly learn it can also be expensive and timely to pay for new state licenses or to earn specialty certification.

Luckily, when you travel with Medical Solutions, we offer to reimburse you for state licenses or specialty certification. Sounds pretty great, right?

Here’s how it works:

If you incur expenses for your license because of your assignment, we will reimburse you for the cost of one license reimbursement per assignment!  Likewise, Medical Solutions will also reimburse the cost for you to earn certification in your specialty. Please note you must be a current Medical Solutions Traveler upon your successful completion of the certification program before costs will be reimbursed to you.

Plus, as a Medical Solutions Traveler, you’re covered for all health-related, pre-screening items needed before you start an assignment. That means you don’t have to pay for any flu shots, vaccines, physicals, and/or drug screening tests. Medical Solutions also pays for your background, employment verification and reference checks.

Medical Solutions is here to help you advance your Travel Nursing career, whether that means reimbursing you for a state license or specialty certification.

The Beaver State is known for colorful fall foliage that spectacularly pops against a background of dark evergreen. From the fiery hues of Portland’s picture-perfect Japanese Gardens to the abundant golden Aspen leaves studding the leash-free hike to Tumalo Falls (that’s right, dog lovers!), fall is one of Oregon’s best looks. Autumn is also a great time to visit the well-known Cannon Beach — AKA the famously rock-studded beach from The Goonies! The harvest is bountiful, the days are sunny, and the nights are crisp — the perfect backdrop for hiking, biking, rafting, camping, fall drives, train rides and other adventures that let you escape the city.

Pennsylvania has more fall festivals than you can shake a cinnamon stick at!


The Keystone State loves a good fall festival. Get your fall apple fix at the annual Applefest in Franklin or go one step further at Canton’s yearly Apple ‘n Cheese Festival. Celebrate the fungus among us at the annual Mushroom Festival in Kennett Square, known as the “Mushroom Capital of the World.” If you’re hungry for more be sure to check out Philadelphia’s Philly Cheesesteak Festival, a celebration of the cheesy, meaty masterpiece of a sandwich that the City of Brotherly Love is so loved for!

Iowa fall road

From Zombie Burger, to Hawkeyes games, to beautiful country drives, Iowa is an iconic fall destination.


You may have missed the famous Iowa State Fair, but don’t fret. There are plenty of autumn activities to keep you busy in The Hawkeye State. College football is a popular fall tradition, so you might want to experience a proper tailgate in Ames or Iowa City before cheering the home team to victory. Adventurers will want to make the trek to Iowa’s picturesque outdoor areas, like Waubonsie State Park, Mines of Spain State Recreation Area, Maquoketa Caves State Park, and Pikes Peak State Park. Iowa also boasts a lot of wonderfully quirky destinations, like the Future Birthplace of Captain James T. Kirk in Riverside and West Bend’s Grotto of the Redemption. The Halloween season is the perfect backdrop for visiting the Villisca Axe Murder House, the scene of unsolved murders in the early 1900s and now rumored to be a real-life haunted house. You can also pass the time until “The Walking Dead” returns this fall by dining at the aptly named Zombie Burger restaurant in Des Moines!

The Volunteer State is famous for vibrant fall hues throughout the Great Smoky Mountains, that eventually give way to mild winters. Music-lovers can take in a show at Nashville’s Grand Ole Opry or explore the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum there. Fans of the “Smoky Mountain Songbird” AKA “Backwoods Barbie” AKA Dolly Parton, will definitely want to make the trip to Pigeon Forge for a visit to Dollywood. Over in Memphis, audiophiles can make the famous pilgrimage to Elvis Presley’s home-turned-museum, Graceland, and catch some current tunes down on Beale Street. Speaking of Memphis, Tennessee is home to some of the country’s best barbecue, which comes in traditional form like ribs, brisket, and pulled pork but also branches out to incorporate barbecue pizza, nachos, and spaghetti!

California has a bit of everything for everyone in the fall.


While California is truly an all-season champ of a state, it’s still no slouch when it comes to fall colors. In fact, because of the state’s geographic diversity, various parts of Cali see fall colors from August all the way through December! Fall in The Golden State brings an abundant harvest, so there are tons of great food festivals celebrating delicious delights like apples, avocados, eggplant, olives, pumpkins, almonds, grapes, and more. Speaking of grapes, a fall trip to Napa is always a great way to check out the winemaking experience in its full, harvest swing. Napa Valley is also known for some of California’s most colorful fall foliage from late September to late November. The fall weather in southern California is beautifully mild and all the hotspots like Los Angeles and San Diego beckon year-round. If you’re the type that’s not into a traditional fall, make like a local and hit up San Diego’s less-crowded beaches all the way into October!

"Atlanta skyline from Piedmont park. Anonymous people playing frisbee. Shallow depth of field focusing on tree in the foreground, keeping people anonymous."

If Georgia’s on your mind, you’re in for a spectacular fall season!


You’ll want to make it down to The Peach State in time for its famous annual Oktoberfest in the adorably picturesque Bavarian town of Helen. Foodies will be in heaven at events like October’s Taste of Atlanta and November’s Savannah Food and Wine Festival. A milder climate allows for great weather for hiking and biking in the beautiful Georgia Mountains, and, speaking of mountains, the popular, multi-faceted Stone Mountain Park hosts events and has select activities open throughout fall! Sports fans enjoying a fall assignment in Atlanta can watch the Braves wind down their season and the Falcons wind theirs up! There’s also a wealth of shopping, museums, dining, and sights to explore in Atlanta. Fall is also the perfect backdrop for another fabulous Georgia city, Savannah, which is said to be chock-full of haunted places and offers ample ghost tours!

Texas is a great state to get your fall pumpkin and football fix while also enjoying warm temps!


The Lone Star State is a vast playground to explore and fall is a great time to enjoy perfect Texas temps in the high 70s/low 80s. Perhaps no state is more into its football than Texas, so it’s a wonderful opportunity to catch some games — whether that’s under the local high school’s Friday Night Lights, watching one of the state’s many division one college teams, or even catching the big league Dallas Cowboys on their home turf. You may be living like a local, but don’t be shy to get your tourist time on at one of Texas’ many historic, beautiful, or otherwise significant sites like the Alamo, San Antonio Riverwalk, Six Flags, Houston Space Center, Padre Island, Austin’s many music districts, and much, much more!
