    I recalled last year we received some concoction that was supposed to be Strawberry Shortcake. That was it. At least the CNAs got a party for National Nursing Home week. It lets ya know how special the nurses are at my workplace

    Our hospital gives out great things for nurses week. Last year we got watches that would secure onto the name tag(not cheap ones) or stethescope that you could use for vital signs, a cook book put together by nurses of their favorite recipes, a hospital T-shirt in your correct size, a kalidescope(sp) and engraved for our unit, and a bunch of other little items. I had just started with this hospital last year right before nurses week and they still gave me the loot. It was the best recognition I had ever recieved in my 26 years of nursing!! I can't wait to see what they give this year.

    HAPPY NURSES WEEK. I am so glad that I recently found this site. They are doing some things where I work, but only for the weekday day nurses. If you work Baylor as I do or nights , well, we kind of get forgotten. Anyway, I hope everyone else has a good one.

    Happy Nurses Week ..... our hospital is celebrating by increasing our census drastically, understaffing grossly, introducing a new pharmacy computer system that is NOT GOING WELL, and over booking the OR!!! We must be having receptions in the ED as well -- because it is overflowing.

    Actually, we are having 3 receptions for our staff nurses on Thursday -- one at 7A- 8:30A, one at 2P-4P, one at 10P-12P. As managers, we all got to gether and purchased mega subs, chips and punch. The hospital is supplying a cake and will be giving out a pretty neat watch (WHEN THEY COME IN BACK ORDER). Our hospital is in the process of a merger -- so this will be our last year as a single entity -- so, we are hoping to make a big deal out of stuff this year. There is a comedian coming in for an evening next week too -- so they are doing a decent job celebrating.

    We get free lunch in the cafeteria, usually some sort of nursing pin. Do other facilities have a popularity contest- "nurse of the year"- that sort of thing?(very poor for morale). The CNA's are ignored entirely, although no one works harder than them. Last year administrstion went around with a dessert cart and everyone helped themselves, but when the aids selected theirs, they were told to "put the dessert back, it's only for nurses." It was very uncomfortable and humiliating for those poor girls. However, we nurses all put our desserts back, too. How cruel to hurt feelings over a stupid piece of cake!

    Happy Nurses Week

    As far as I know, we are getting nothing special for nurses day......although I did see a few coupons lying around for some cleaning company and some of those little plastic refrigerator calendar magnets.

    The night shift nurses are getting together tonight though and having a carry in dinner. That will be nice....Mexican theme to celebrate nurses week and Cinco DeMayo....

    Ole-

    :hatparty:

    THAT is the most blatantly disrespectful thing I have heard any form of management do in a VERY LONG TIME. DISGUSTING! I would have to consider moving on from an institution that so obviously disrespects such valuable team members as AIDES ARE! But NOT before I wrote a SCATHING letter to administration on the way out!:angryfire
