Welcome to All Species Nurse Resource Page

This site is used as a shortcut to existing liks that serves as an encyclopedia for the public and professionals.

The links contain their own references on their site, as All Species Nurse is only bridging the gap for the community to find sites relevant to their needs.

The public should learn more about their health by requesting their lab results, understanding their medications and by reviewing their course of treatments initially through their healthcare provider.


By reviewing public information in a condensed form as a reference site such as All Species Nurse, all patients will be able to communicate better with their healthcare provider in an effort to improve their quality of care.


As an added plus, students, novice nurses and healthcare professionals can refer to All Species Nurse websites for formularies, medication information, review of skills available online, as well as specific services provided by All Species Nurse that assists professionals in their practice or careers through complicated transitions.


The unique quality of the All Species Nurse websites is that it is broad in containing both Human and Animal information for the public and professionals.


The categories to the right are organized according to Public Outreach sites, Veterinary areas (including "find a vet hospital in your area or a petsitter) even for human interests such as "find a hospital," to "find a daycare or baby sitter."



**Use this site as your overall guide to finding, sorting out and learning about health and whatever else affects you and your life! Use what you learn to communicate effectively with your health care provider or veterinarian.**

For readers; information sent for All Species Nurse to post from a professional in the field: never too late to educate

The new Coronavirus may not show signs of infection for many days. How can one know if he/she is infected? By the time they have a fever and/or cough and go to the hospital, the lung is usually 50% Fibrosis and it's too late. 

Taiwan experts provide a simple self-check that we can do every morning. Take a deep breath and hold your breath for more than 10 seconds. If you complete it successfully without coughing, without discomfort, stiffness or tightness, etc., it proves there is no Fibrosis in the lungs, basically indicates no infection. In critical times, please self-check every morning in an environment with clean air. 

Serious excellent advice by Japanese doctors treating COVID-19 cases: Everyone should ensure your mouth & throat are moist, never dry. Take a few sips of water every 15 minutes at least. Why? Even if the virus gets into your mouth, drinking water or other liquids will wash them down through your throat and into the stomach. Once there, your stomach acid will kill all the viruses. If you don't drink enough water more regularly, the virus can enter your windpipe and into the lungs. That's very dangerous.

1. If you have a runny nose and sputum, you have a common cold 
2. Coronavirus pneumonia is a dry cough with no runny nose. 
3. This new virus is not heat-resistant and will be killed by a temperature of just 26/27 degrees. It hates the Sun. 
4. If someone sneezes with it, it takes about 10 feet before it drops to the ground and is no longer airborne. 
5. If it drops on a metal surface it will live for at least 12 hours - so if you come into contact with any metal surface - wash your hands as soon as you can with a bacterial soap. 
6. On fabric, it can survive for 6-12 hours. normal laundry detergent will kill it. 
7. Drinking warm water is effective for all viruses. Try not to drink liquids with ice. 
8. Wash your hands frequently as the virus can only live on your hands for 5-10 minutes, but - a lot can happen during that time - you can rub your eyes, pick your nose unwittingly and so on. 
9. You should also gargle as prevention. A simple solution of salt in warm water will suffice. 
10. Can't emphasize enough - drink plenty of water! 

THE SYMPTOMS 
1. It will first infect the throat, so you'll have a sore throat lasting 3/4 days 
2. The virus then blends into a nasal fluid that enters the trachea and then the lungs, causing pneumonia. This takes about 5/6 days further. 
3. With pneumonia comes high fever and difficulty in breathing. 
4. The nasal congestion is not like the normal kind. You feel like you're drowning. It's imperative you then seek immediate attention.

In Conclusion, Drink lots of water, wash your hands and avoid touching metal railings whenever possible :)

REACH emergency informationa on COVID-19


Wow.  It’s been quite the couple of weeks. How are you?

I hope everyone is home, healthy and safe.  As we are practicing social distancing, home has become 24/7 and REACH’s top priority is maintaining housing stability for our residents so they can remain healthy during the COVID-19 outbreak. REACH is quickly making significant changes to our processes and policies in response to COVID-19 to keep vulnerable residents and staff safe. These include:

Increased Resource and Service Needs
There is an increased need for food and essential items and our Resident Services team is working swiftly to support resident health and housing stability during this pandemic.

Rent Payment Plans 
REACH will offer payment plans, waive late fees, and not pursue any evictions for non-payment of rent for those financially impacted by COVID-19.

Additional Cleaning
REACH has hired special vendors to conduct deep disinfectant cleaning in buildings reserved for seniors or people with disabilities; in addition to increased cleaning performed by staff.

Emergency Compensation and Paid Time Off

REACH has established an Emergency Time Off Bank as a supplemental, emergency resource for staff (in addition to existing PTO) to keep employees whole in pay who are unable to work due to childcare responsibilities or is ill with COVID-19 related symptoms (or a dependent family member). On-site essential staff will also receive additional emergency pay compensation when essential tasks must be done on-site.

Technology Needs
Purchasing additional laptops, scanners and mobile accessibility equipment to facilitate remote work for all departments when they are not performing essential functions on-site and to stay connected to residents.

This is an unheard-of situation. I don't yet know all the ways Coronavirus will affect residents or REACH as a whole. REACH is experiencing a significant increase in costs to meet the additional needs of our staff and residents during this evolving health crisis.  We are focused on how to help residents get through this crisis.

How can you help? Make a donation.

Your gift will allow REACH to stay nimble to the changing environment and best support our residents in maintaining housing stability and meet basic needs. Flexible support will assist REACH in pivoting resources to the greatest need as this emergency unfolds.

We are all in this together... from a distance. These are unprecedented times, and your support is more important now than ever. If you can, please make a gift today.

Wishing you and your loved ones stay healthy and safe.

In Gratitude,
Dan Valliere
CEO REACH

Hello All!

A great thank you and shout out to a reader of All Species Nurse's information guides. She and her sister had worked on researching existing websites that can assist the public in awareness of what should be known to assist our elderly in the home and community setting.


This awareness involves preventing falls in the elderly within homes. There are various areas surrounding this high priority issue in Evidence-Based Practice within every hospital, as well. What makes these sister's unique is that they have moved beyond the hospital setting in an effort to ensure our seniors are protected overall, from home to hospital, back to home by sharing websites they have used to assist the health of their dad. To find the location of the sites titled:


The Complete Guide to Home Modifications to Prevent Falls
Selling a Home with Modifications for Older Adults
Fall Prevention
Fall Prevention & Mobility: Practical Safety and Organization Strategies for Seniors
How to Talk about End of Life Planning with Your Family
Helping a Senior Regain Confidence After a Fall
Senior Fall Prevention: A Roadmap for Navigating Resources and Benefits
