    Perhaps you should "accidently" spill bleach on the uniforms before returning them!


    BWAAAAAAAAHHH!!! I don't know why, but for some reason this just struck me as hilarious at the time I read it!

    When I started at my facility I was forced to buy their uniforms even though I had my own that color that I liked better. I was told that the uniforms were a benefit because they were sold to us for $26. Later I transferred to another unit that wore another color so there went another $26. Now a year and a half later they said that whoops they made a mistake. Those uniforms are only leased to us for $26 a year and that we must turn in the old ones and purchase as a lease another $26 uniform set or be charged $52 if we leave without returning the uniforms.

    Now I bought mine and sure don't appreciate having to return them. Has anyone else had this problem? Any suggestions of what to do or who to go to? Is there a governing agency over nursing homes?
    I'm ready to be tied. We got a letter from our CNO stating they are reinstating the white nursing uniforms. We don't get a choice in the matter. Nevermind every single white uniform I have looks more like it belonged to a dalmation. (Activated charcoal does wonders when a patient sprays you with it!)

    The part that really irritates me is we are supposedly a shared governance hospital. Why is this being dictated? No one will answer my questions. You would think they could just present their evidence, and let us make our own decision.

    Aaarrrgggghhh!:angryfire
