    Heather, I sure hope your comment wasn't directed at me, because I'd really hate to get upset over something that didn't involve me.

    MOVING ON....PLEASE....

    Last hospital I worked at had theme days in the canteen - Italian, Indian, Chinese, Polish, French etc. Always went down well.

    Frannybee, thanks for bringing me a little chuckle.

    Now I have that stupid song stuck in my head, along with an image of that Raelian nutbar, Jean-Pierre Whatever. "Send in the clones..."

    British Student, your comment was dry, witty, and very funny...all of which was lost on the posters who accused you of being a lousy nurse prospect or worse. To those who DIDN'T 'get it', SHE WAS BEING FACETIOUS.

    Don't be so damnedly quick to take offence ("Oh my God! She thinks we should get rid of the patients! I think I'll tell her off!"). If you had actually THOUGHT about what British Student wrote, you'd be laughing--I mean, duh.

    First off, it wouldn't be possible to eliminate patients altogether...anymore than it would be possible to clone nurses or doctors. Second, British Student went on to suggest that eliminating doctors would solve the problem of sick people--no doctors to make diagnoses, no diagnoses made, no sick people. This would be your clue that she was kidding, if you missed it the first time around (which you did). Hear that ringing sound? It's the freakin' clue phone. Answer it.

    Finally, if you inadvertently offend someone (say, Frannybee), APOLOGISE. Don't make some stupid comment about how the offended person is obviously an idiot and should have known that your nasty comment was directed to someone else. This doesn't help.

    And as for the topic....I'm a big fan 24-hour cafeteria service. I worked at a hospital with that sort of service--including floor delivery--and it was FABULOUS, you could order your lunch for a preset time and voila! there it was.:kiss
    Ok, first why don't you stay out of things that don't concern you. If you would take the time to read Britishstudent's other posts on threads, you would realize that this is how this person really is. Why don't you do a search.

    Second of all, I didn't offend FrannyBee. If she would have comprehended the context of the thread, she would have realized I wasn't even talking to her. I refuse to apologize for someone else's ignorance.

    You speak about making matters worse. Well, why don't you drop it b/c you're dredging up something that has been buried a page ago. Let it go.

    Damn, now I have to take someone off my ig list to make room for others.

    I am a cardiac nurse--but I work in a pretty old, small, community hospital--so perhaps the technology is out there, but I would love a wireless telemetry screen (small) that would show any alarmed rhythm on my patients out on the floor. The telemetry main screen is located in the ICU--so this would make it possible for me to check my patients rhtyhms at their bedside if they are displaying symptoms, or complaining of pain. It would help me feel safer when I can hear a telelmetry alarm ringing, and the ICU nurse is tied up in a patient's room!

    how about a portable tele monitor? you could switch from room to room and check on all your pts on the fly....

    *the possibilities are endless*

    Our tele monitoring area is on the floor, but it would be nice to have something in the room. We keep in good communication with our tele people, so I guess it's better than your situation (having to go to a different floor). We monitor everyone on tele on our floor.

    Remember the rules from Kindergarden:

    1. Play nice.
    2. No foul language.
    3. Make friends not enemies.
    4. Don't stoop to other persons level.

    These are the rules at allnurses too.

    If this type of activity posters have engaged in here continues on other threads Brian will be notified to consider banning from website.

    Just a reminder

    I was definitely not talking about you. Had nothing to do with you at all. Sorry you thought it did.

    Thank you Heather.

    I am sorry if I offended anyone. I'm not going to say any more because it just seems to make things worse on this thread.

    Or maybe you've consistantly misunderstanded me?

    Yes I am to dry, to dry for you....

    To be recognised by my hard work with a simple thanks, even a one line note in my mail box

    To have my peers, buddies, know when I'm having a bad day and ignore a nasty remark.... and forget about it.

    To have a patient or family call or write and even suggest I may have made a difference

    To call a manager at 2am, say "I'm drowning", and they simply reply.... "I'll be right there".

    A doctor says thanks for taking good care of so and so.

    That person who never comes in extra or switches thier shift does so, even once.... and you don't have to share your sob story.

    The nurse manager makes rounds and notices that it's 4pm and no one has had lunch and however it's done... it gets taken care of.

    Every new person, be it nurse, RT, NA, gets a warm welcome and is part of the family..........from day one (no I'm not a new nurse)


    Sorry, Ambien wore off, awake now.....

    I'll simply take a 30 minute lunch break sitting down, reading a non-nursing book, where at the end... I have time to pee too!
