Is this guy for real??????

  1. Of all the people in the world, why a nurse? As if they don't have it hard enough you have trash like this walking the earth. I love how they wouldn't disclose the hospital either. I live in a suburb of lovely detroit and have it narrowed down pretty good. What a shame. At least he is polite huh???

    He can have all five dollars I carry in my pocket for lunch!

    Believe it or not though, this is constantly on my mind when I have to pick up narcs from pharmacy. I don't take the stairs in fear of someone getting smart about it and then when I am in the elevator I am very conscious of what I am carrying (I am already pretty conscious of who is around me to begin with). The location of my hospital (near a downtown area...we have a lot of indigent patients) doesn't help the situation either. :uhoh21:

    We've had robberies at gunpoint, cars being stolen, a nurse hit over the head with a baseball bat, a pharmacist that was actually thrown into a trunk, petty theft, on and on and on. Life in the inner city........of St. Petersburg, FL.

    We need to always be on guard. And timely report what appears out of the ordinary.

    IamRN,

    Thank you for your post. As a student nurse I had never thought about what you said regarding picking narcs. up (or anything for that matter) from the pharm. and people being wise to the nurse or tech carrying it.

    Why are nurses carrying narcs around the hospital?? OMG!! I'm glad that all our patients & our therapy gym is all together.........we are moving the end of June to another floor (on the bottom) and our gym will be '90 seconds' away.....they tell us that we will have a pyxis there in the gym too. I sure hope so coz' I won't be carrying narcs around the hospital.......what about nurses who would 'forget' to give to the patient and use them??
    Too scary to think of!

    The scary part is the hospitals I have it narrowed down to have armed security officers or at least they use to .

    In my hospital, if you run out of a narcotic on the weekend or @ night when the Narcotic delivery person isn't there, an RN has to go to the pharmacy to sign it out and take it back to the unit. I guess if your pt was on a field trip and needed drugs that area didn't have, you'd have to take it to him. That is a scary thought, tho....
