    I have a fellow nurse who calls me by the wrong name. She calls me Diana, Dena, Donna... Anything but DANA. It isn't that hard, call me by the right name please. She claims it is to hard to remember....how about looking at my name tag?

    The dress code at one nursing job banned clothes that were "tethered." I think they meant "tattered."

    Once had a nursing professor that said and wrote in powerpoints "IB profen" instead of "ibuprofen". Took me a while to figure out she meant ibuprofen and not something else...

    Well of course you can't wear tethered clothes! If you are tied to the desk and computer, how can you run around answering lights and getting those life saving warm blankets for grandma's visitors?

    One thing I do know, is that her NG tube suction was bringing up "poopvomit," a term my fellow clinical students and I agreed should be a word back in nursing school. If you have encountered it, you know what I'm talking about!
    "NG tube draining yellow-brown fecal material, guaiac positive."

    You really haven't lived until you get to chart, "Left pleural tube and mediastinal tube draining fecal material." oop: Trust me on this.

    Nothing bothered me more when I worked in the hospital (and I guess I have George W. Bush to thank for this) than when people said "Nuke-u-lar med" instead of "Nuclear med."

    Was public education any better before Bush? It seems to me the problem is with education, or lack of it. That's what happens when the focus is more on the number of people graduating or passing tests as opposed to kids actually learning things...

    I never heard anyone pronounce nuclear as "nukeular" before George W. Bush came around and started saying it that way.
