Update on Gross Out Co-Worker - page 5

Last week she came into the nurses station and urinated while she told us something that was going on with a patient. We were shocked...I'm not talking a little dribble...pant leg was clinging to... Read More

    I don't think a female condom catheter would work...you would have to hold it on with super glue or staples or deck screws (most other screws would rust) or something...I don't think tape would hold because it would get wet.

    And since the question was asked...it is congratulations...I know you see congradulations all the time, but it is either being misspelled or someone is making a play on words or whatever for a graduate...
    Thank you for clearing that one up!!! I know I have seen it on greeting cards and even banners!! Maybe I better stop shopping at the Dollar store, huh!!??

    PS- LOVE your screen, cotjockey-I giggle out loud everytime I see it, and I may start calling my boyfriend by that title-if you don't mind!!!!!!!! Bye....

    Is it just me who is having trouble believing this is for real?
    I can believe it's reall.

    About 8 years ago i worked with a woman who would wind up bleeding through her pants because " i don't like the way pads feel, and i can't use tampons" (so she wasn't wearing ANYthing during her period). Took 3 months for management to do something and that was ONLY after another employee had called the state and put a bug in their ear.

    Okay....If management won't do anything, I would geta collection together for female inct pads or briefs, a new pair of larger pants (estimate the size) maybe some underpants, and some type of body spray. Might also throw in a brochure about Detrol or inct meds or anything else concerning body odors etc. Put it in a box with a nice note saying we are concerned etc.

    oh my.... bleeding and no pad? that is so not cool. MERKAT.... I want to know why management has not done anything. Surely pt's have been witness to this... I would gift " Princess Pissy-Pants " w/ a walmart gift certificate for some pants that are appropriate and an assortment of incontinence products, BEENO, and body spray. I would also purchase a big can of lysol or stinky-be-gone (okay, stinky-be-gone is not a real product, I made that up!!lol)) to keep at nurse's station. I would tell her that she needs to address the problem. I would be pro-active. If this did not work then I would raise all kinds of hell w/ her superiors...and I would put in my notice if nothing was done and report the facility to every governmental agency to bring sanctions on a facilty that apparently does not care about infection control. This is insane, I just do not think I would put up w/ it any longer... I just find it appalling!!!!

    Hmmmm...
    First I'll start by assuming the posts are true. Then, by agreeing that the therapist in question has serious mental health issues. Then, by noting that no one in the nursing command is known to have taken any action.

    If this person is licensed as a therapist of some type, she likely reports to someone outside the nursing administration. And her practice is regulated by some state agency (not the board of nursing). If she is unable to practice competently (and it does sound so) then either her superior could be consulted (by the nursing adminsistration), or she could be reported to her licensing board.

    As far as buying her briefs, etc, I'd say you're just playing into the behavior. If she is aware of her behavior, and she has been confronted, clearly this isn't a behavior pattern that can be addressed by the usual means of communication or conflict resolution.
