My grandmother in law is a resident at a local nursing home. My husband took my kids to see her today (I was at home with the baby). The nurse there took the cotton packing out of the top of a bottle of medicine she was opening... Read More

    Talk about uptight. Board of nursing for having the audacity to making a kids day a little better? A previous poster was absolutely right: you took a small child (and I, having a 4 and 7 year old know how their nasty they can be... Little typhoid Marys) into an environment where nosocomial infections are certainly present and you're complaining about a cotton ball? I think it's time that you got your priorities straight.

    The husband should have called 911 and had her arrested and the boy assessed by EMS. You can have her charged with assault, and if she smiled charged with lewd behavior

    To answer your question..no you aren't crazy. However you are definitely overreacting. I literally laughed out loud while reading your post. Loosen up a little...or a lot

    I think for the safety of children everywhere the OP must publish this nurses name address and recent photo so we can all protect our own children. You may not have been able to save your child, but you can help us save ours

    Probably not...anyone got a lug wrench? Methinks someone or something needs to be loosened up a teense.

    Ruas61...

    I'm a little dense when it comes to forums. I didn't realize that your "Attorney" comment was sarcasm until I saw your second post. lol. I was like "Is this guy/lady out of their mind!!!?" LOL.

    Op, I understand that sometimes we can get a bit overprotective when it comes to our children. But, let's think for a minute. Why would a Nurse intentionally endanger your child? Even with the moral issue aside, why would s/he jeopardize her job like that? Please don't go to the BON over this. She was likely just being friendly to your child. Is there something that you maybe left out of your post? I'm wondering what those "Other things" were that the nurse did that you were uncomfortable with... It IS possible that one of those other things may have been inappropriate, I dont know, but the incident described in your post (unless some info was left out that may change this) seems harmless.

    Again Ma'am, PLEASE don't pursue this with the BON.
