Nurses please try to look a little more polished at work - Page 22Register Today!
- May 21, '12 by Spidey's momForgive me if this has already been noted (I got to page 14 on a very slow computer and have to get to work) . . .but the OP on the first page stated she didn't mean everyone should have manicured nails and wear make-up. (See quote below). It's the quote that had "flammed" in it though so maybe folks focused on that.
Personally I think she made some very good points about keeping to the dress code, not wearing perfume, not having long nails, etc.
And yes, I have seen women wear scrubs in a way to show off their curves - we are not talking about those of us who are overweight. Two examples of women where I work - one has large breasts and wears low cut tops so when she bends over her breasts look like they are being served up on a plate for the patient to feast upon.
Another nurse wears her scrubs pants rolled down and a short scrub top so when she bends over while sitting down to chart you can see her tramp-stamp, her thong and the top of her butt crack.
Both women have been counseled - both women continue to show up at times with the above issues. (That is management's fault).
Bad breath, coffee breath, smoke breath . . all can be taken care of by having a toothbrush and toothpaste at work.
The issues she brings up are all legitimate.
(Gotta go to work -hope this slow computer works!).
Quote from OnlybyHisgraceRNI believe everyone should look professional. My personal preference is light make up as it makes me look more chipper and awake. I'm not saying every nurse should wear make up or maniucured nails.Last edit by Spidey's mom on May 21, '12

- May 21, '12 by OCNRN63i absolutely go ballistic when i hear/see "exact same." if it's the same, then using exact is redundant.
- *hides behind couch* guilty as charged! I do that all the time.
- May 21, '12 by Lynx25Quote from healthstarThat's just wrong. What if I'm not a frilly little butterfly? I don't WANT a flower tattoo!In my opinion tattoos r trashy, unprofessional, and not feminine at all......can't stand females with sleeves, animals, crazy stuff eww. A butterfly, a flower would be a lil more feminine.
Do you also think all women should wear pink? Is it wrong that I have a motorcycle?
- May 21, '12 by StephalumpQuote from Lynx25Then, obviously, you're a man. Make-up and butterflies are what make you a woman...haven't you been paying attention?
That's just wrong. What if I'm not a frilly little butterfly? I don't WANT a flower tattoo!
And people think it's only men who perpetuate sexism against women....
Et tu, HealthStar.
- May 21, '12 by carrie_cI wear makeup, but by the end of a 12 hour night, it's all worn off. But by the end of the shift, I really don't care what I look like, smell like, etc, I just want to go home and get in my bed.

A Bard PICC line is the same thing as a Bard midline in terms of products. They are not the exact same thing when viewed in the context of placement.
"They are the same catheter, they are Bard brand catheters."
"But are they the exact same thing?"
"No, one is a PICC line and one is a midline"
