OOPS-New Questions

  1. Sorry, I should have read some of the threads prior to posting. I guess I can read jsut about everything I need to know.

    I do have a couple of questions though-

    1. What kind of personal effects can you usually take into work-purse, ID, food etc.

    2. Anyone heard of inmates suing nurses and winning? Do you feel that your license is in more or less jeopardy working corrections?

    Your purse has to be see-through, like plastic. No metal or glass. I carry anything I can mircrowave, but we also have a small foreman grill and toaster in our medical clean utility room...also doubles as our locked pharmacy room.

    I have been to court about 5 times. One b/c of a death r/t natural causes. The other for staff r/t reasons, called as a witness. No one has threatened to sue. I've been there 10 years.
