    well to the male management i would love to say "could you come here please and let me give you a pr exam, i think you're megaly prostate is pressing up against your brain"........:chuckle

    or how about they all have cerbral lavages??

    or how about "i would love to see things from your pov but i cant get my head up mr arse far enough".........or even "is that a frown across your forehead or just you're circumscicion scar you dickhead"..............

    but then again i suspect that management are all too busy sticking their toes into each others arse and giving each other 'toe jobs'.........:spin:

    an to female management?? only one i have coined so far for them is 'are you as self absorbed as your tampon you stuck up c*#@!!!!!'!!!!............naughty but nice.........

    Neither me or my patients care about pizza (that I won't have time to eat). What we want is safe staffing.
    You guys get pizza? We get a certificate for a free 'SLICE' of pizza from the cafeteria. Great for the night shifter who would have to come in on his/her day off for the free slice since our cafeteria isn't open at night.

    Sherri, that is so typical. And then try to explain that to the suits. They just stare at you like you are speaking a foreign language. As I have said before, I just thank God they realize on some level that they( the Suits) are too stupid to attempt pt care.

    My first job out of nursing school was med-surg in a rural hospital. The patient load was murder. I was shift leader to one CNA and took care of 10-12 pts. I was slow because I spent alot of time looking up the 3 million meds that I gave and documenting by hand for all 12 pts. My shift ended at 7am but I never went home before 9-10 am. Just making sure that I had left NOTHING for the day shift and finish documenting.
    Well I finally had enough and spoke with my unioun rep. I told her that if things don't change than I'm bailing and going down the road. She went to the DON and they revamped the matrix of staffing. Granted its better but occasional its still bad.
    My unioun rep stated that con't to fill out the unsafe staffing every time that we are short handed. (I have) The state has come a calling once because of all the unsafe staffing. (I'm not the only one who fills them out)..
    Unsafe staffing reflects your DON license. She is responable for the staffing and is accountable to the state for it. So EVERY TIME that you are short staffed fill out the paperwork and it will get better or your DON will get he!! from the state....
    TRY IT, IT WORKED FOR US
