Quick story....someone I know who is an RN (BSN), but volunteers with the food services department at our hospital just because she wants to. A really unique individual as I know no other RN’s that would do that in fear of being looked down on. Anyway, one day she was delivering meals to a med/surg floor ( she does not work on this unit so keep in mind no one knows shes is a nurse) and some smart a** nurse thought it would be funny to put her down in front of other staff and some p.t.’s telling her how "uneducated she is for doing this kind of work." My friend pulled out her badge that had RN all over it, and apparently this other nurse turned pale white ( probably just knowing what a colossal screw up she made
). Anyway long story short she turned her in to the Unit manager, and from what I understand was promptly " transferred". I personally have never seen this person again. Just a good reason why you should be careful how you talk to others .You never know who you are talking to.
