Quote from OCNRN63I think that this site should be for nurses and other members of the health care team, including students.I would at least be happier with no patients/lay people. A lot of us have been on the other side of the bedrail and seen the good, bad and ugly. I come from here to get away from patients, not interact with them after I've been with then all day. I want to talk to my peers.
The statement that " I come from here to get away from patients, not interact with them after I've been with them all day. I want to talk to my peers," may sound callous to people who have never worked in health care. However, we also need our own space. We do not have this luxury during our working hours. Case in point, what is a break or lunch time when the call lights chime in the breakroom and your Vocera or tele-phone rings off the hook? Talk about sensory overload! My point, we need our own space without being censored by others who have never walked in our shoes (and probably would not last as long as we have, let alone one day).

- 2May 26, '11 by eriksolnQuote from Diane-RN in MichiganI just figured out/learned what OP stands for last week. We should make entire posts of just acronyms. We'd save a lot of space, well...............IDK if saving cyber-space counts but....................Thanks. Not everyone on this board is "acronym-savvy."

See, what you don't realize is, I put the secret of a happy life in all acronyms in the above. Or was that "OMG WTH N/M"?
