    Our units, generally speaking, are not unsafe for us. We've been trained to recognized hazards and take precautions that keep us safe. Most school-age children, however, have not. Therefore, bringing them into such an environment presents a danger to them. [In my book, that means those who did are bad parents.]

    I'll go to career day. I figure the worst that can happen to me is having to explain to the kindergarten that I'm not a doctor, and men can be nurses.

    Obviously there are illnesses, diseases, and hazards. It's not like they set them loose to run wild into hazardous conditions. But I won't get defensive, as I don't have kids. There were quite a few kids here, in the kitchen, housekeeping, even the supervisor escorted a staffers kid throughout the hospital. They seemed to be strictly supersvised, and I know the girls on my unit had a tight rein around them.

    I'll just disagree with you and leave it at that.
