    Hmmm... I don't know about County General, by my hospital requires that a previously filled position must be posted and bid on.

    Mine too, and where I work the docs don't have the authority to appoint nurse managers or hire or fire any nurses.

    Does anyone remember when Carrie applied for the ER chief position - and they had to open it up to outsiders, because the suits wanted a "big name" in that position.

    But for Nurse Manager, they just toss a warm body at it.

    Wow, the importance of nurses in this series is amazing.

    More things that make you go HMMMMMMM!!!!!!!!

    Yeah, I remember when Carrie applied for the ER chief. I also remember she got the job because she brown-nosed Romano! Did you all buy the excuse about shooting up "hormones" in the bathroom? Come on! Sounds to me like she's using.

    Do you guys have a clue who really makes ER's run?
    I don't think so. Most Doc's are oblivious to what or who runs the ED.
    Usually their services are provided by contract from an outside vendor.
    Nurses run the ED. How about portraying nurses in a true light. Your TV nurses are either failed out docs, drug addicts, alcoholics or suicidal neurotics. All the other nurses are just background. Get Real!
    Robert M. Scarlatti, MA, EMT/P, RN

    Years ago when one of our docs was a consultant on ER we asked him about the role of the nurse in the show. His response: "ER is geared towards females 20-40 who like to fantasize about the George Clooney character. The viewers don't care about the female actors." Even with George long gone I guess the writers still think the viewers only want fantasy.

    Well, why not want fantasy from a TV show. We live the reality.

    I didn't catch it, but my mom said that he was in bed with someone during the show's opening.

    So much for "I was a virgin until my wedding night." I guess he's making up for lost time! :chuckle :chuckle

    "Never boff the patients until you get all the labs back."

    Well at least that one rang true.
