Things I can't stand in nursing: (just a vent)
/pronouncing the names of drugs incorrectly. Example, last week, i corrected a MAR that read "Phergan Suppitory" instead of phenergan suppository.
I hate when people call vicodin "VICODAN"
i hate when people call phenergan "PHENERGRAN"
i hate when people call risperdal "RISPERIDOL"
and then put this on the MARS.
i hate when people write on a MAR "Lotrisone Cream to affected area". can't they be kind enough to tell the rest of us where the affected area is??
I hate being called "waitress" YES IT HAS HAPPENED!!
I hate when people put the call light on, only to go in their room and they ask me for the remote, which happens to be 6 inches in front of them. Alert, oriented people, who just think they're in the Hilton vs. the hospital.
and that's all i can think of for now.
anyone care to share their vents with me???
