    I'm sorry, as a result of nursing school I can only answer questions in an NCLEX format. Would you mind offering me four choices that either all seem right or all seem wrong?

    They need a boot camp for management. No breaks, unreasonable patients and family members, ridiculous mandatory charting, 5 call lights going off at once, monitor alarms and bed alarms screeching as well.

    I tell my partner that if I don't know the answer it's because it's not an important ailment. She rarely agrees. Sometimes I tell her I'll know more after a physical exam. She seems to fall for that one a lot...

    First off, it is not your job to creep on other nurses because they seem shady at work. If they do something reportable or you have suspicion of something that can cause harm, you report it to your superior and be done with it.

    Nurse sanctions and such are a matter of public record. When searching their license info, it will have a link to their BON "trial" and any punishments if they have ever had trouble with the board. Only seeing basic licensing info means they have not been turned into the board for anything that has caused action to be taken against them.

    Leave it be. This is just weird.

    Hahah. I give my husband one of 2 things depending on my mood - a smartass answer or I start a super technical science answer and he gives up. [emoji23]
    When people ask me why their elbow hurts or what that weird rash is, I always answer that it's the hallmark sign of a brain tumor. Most of my family and friends have quit asking me to diagnose them. Except DH. He wants a diagnosis and advice, but then he never takes the advice given. Nothing changes.
