    Some places really need the doctors to choose them to admit patients to. Nursing staff is in the expense column, MDs are in the revenues column. It's really all about accounting and nothing more. I hate places like that.

    I WANT to believe something this ridiculous could not be real.
    I am exactly the opposite. I want so bad for this to be a real story.

    I'd love to say this must be BS but I can't. I've seen petty write ups and feuds which have escalated through HR and all the way to the courts over such things as; appropriate footwear for office workers, how much makeup get worn, how much perfume, "stealing" a public parking spot, locker assignments, refusal to speak to / acknowledge another nurse, lack of donation to the pizza fund, eating too much pizza, refusing to help a doc carry stuff to her car (written up by a nurse), the previously mentioned cutting in front of somebody at the coffee shop, requests for "reasonable accommodations" so two nurses fighting over the same love interest wouldn't have to work together, the never-ending yakking about a dirty staff fridge (my suggestion has always been to take it away) the list is never-ending. I love being a nurse but some of the bad raps we get for simple pettiness and plain childishness are often more than deserved

    Find a new gig at a new unit or facility. That's all ridiculous. Doc's boo-hooing about candy, and it sounds like unit leadership is up their backsides. No good.

    This is absurd. Good grief.

    Is the big blue gummy the judge? He should have a silk robe and a gummy gavel

    Do you think it is?
    I am skeptical. Nonetheless, a great story.

    You didn't get the memo?? That is for your safety only, of course!

    Are we talking about a stocking with a bunch of unwrapped sticky gummy bears just waiting for some one to stick their booglie hand into, feel 'em up and put 'em back for the next guy to finger??

    Good thing there is a security camera on the job.

    Remember: It's not the crime, it's the cover-up.
