    On a related note, I am glad I had those cameras installed.

    Never heard of a stocking filled with candy for the doctors. Why would it even be in the nurses station? Instead they should have left them in the Dr's office.
    For that matter, wouldn't putting the offending candy at the nurses station be a cardinal sin in the first place? Food in a patient care area??? Somebody should be held responsible for that! ASSEMBLE A PANEL IMMEDIATELY!

    You know the doctors do not give a $@#% about the gummy bears. Like, seriously. If there is a single doctor on your unit who is upset that you took their gummy bears I will eat my weight in gummy bears right now.

    That is so ridiculous.

    Actually I think I know some that would legit throw a fit about it.

    Apparently, the powers that be at that hospital have never heard that sharing is caring.

    I would replace the candy you took and then run for the hills. This is an incredibly petty situation and does not sound like a place of work I would want to be in.

    Oh my gosh, you got caught on camera diverting candy? Did they check your glucose and do you have to self report? Did anyone report that you had gummy bear breath?
    For shame, and for the next three years you will probably have to undergo random glucose testing and attend twice daily, candy eaters anonymous meetings.

    No, seriously, someone needs to get a life.

    I have witnessed so much crap with regard to petty stuff like this. It's ridiculous. Nurse managers and nurse administrators definitely need to just say to those who report these things, "Are you kidding me? Don't you have enough to do? I know I do."

    I knew one doc years ago who actually tried to write a nurse up for cutting in front of him at the Starbucks in our lobby. At the time this doc was head of our critical services and very used to having nurses kiss his little tiny old-man butt and I was a union steward. Of course this complaint went nowhere as we have a collective bargaining agreement and this was considered to be outside the boundaries of work as neither the nurse or the doc had started their shift yet so crybaby complaint dismissed.

    However, during that time I've seen a zillion cry-baby, petty, trifling complaints issued by nursey-poo. Trust me if this complaint actually happened it wasn't by a doc. It came from some twit nurse who should be on meds. Speaking of taking meds .... what set of idiots puts up stockings for doctors with candy in it? Let them buy their own candy as they make many multiples of what nurses make and such acts of good will (inappropriate worship???) are rarely reciprocated. Apparently there is some kind of doctors week at my hospital and butt-sucking nurses all get in line to collect and obsess over planning the festivities. Why? They get there "appreciation" the same as us which is every two weeks in the form of a check & they are way more appreciated than we are. I've never given a dime to this and never will.

    Oh my gosh, random glucose checks and candy eaters anonymous.. hahahahaha. I about snorked my tea when I read this.

    I can only imagine getting fired for candy diversion and trying to explain that on my next interview. What a petty place to work for. Ridiculous.

    That may be the most petty thing I've heard of. Threatening jobs over stockings of gummy bears? That were left out at by the nurses station by the way. Though apparently lowly nurses are not entitled to such things, those gummy bears were obviously meant for the Docotors !! I would get a different job ASAP. And bring a giant bag of gummy bears as a parting gift your last shift.
