    And as terrible as it sounds, all I could think of was how fortunate it was for society that this character had rendered himself permanently incapable of producing offspring........you just can't fix that kind of stupid. Yanno?
    He qualifies for a Darwin Award, to those who removed themselves from the gene pool by an incredible act of stupidity that either kills them or renders them incapable of reproduction.

    This is criminal and they have to be punished.
    Whoa, whoa, whoa!

    The residents need their meds.

    The nurses should be ordering meds on time.

    Meds are being "borrowed" to take care of the residents.

    There's a system problem here, and, while this is illegal, it is far from criminal in the way you are using it. Start getting meds ordered on time.

    HA!

    Yesterday all of the kiddies were in entertaining the folks with their costumes when a resident was discovered stone. cold. dead. TRICK OR TREAT!

    They waited until the kids were gone to call for the hearse.

    As I've said before, I'm an atheist and I often wear skirts and dresses.

    Patients LOVE to see a nurse in a skirt. Especially in white.

    The Hardest part of the LTC med pass for me always was running to the supply closet when I found the empty bottle of test strips, ... then to replace the tylenol bottle with 1 tab in it, etc., etc......:selfbonk:
    It infuriates me when I follow someone that inconsiderate. I always make sure the cart is stocked and NEAT for the next person.

    I like LTC. Don't love it but like it. I hated being a floor nurse there but then, I hated that in the hospital, too. I am now doing hospice, visiting, and love it. Lots of freedom, lots of autonomy, and no MDs changing orders every 30 seconds.

    It depends to a degree on your state. I started in NY and LTC was very tightly watched by the gov't so the corner-cutting I see here in TX, where they have actually outsourced a lot of survey, wasn't possible. But it's hard, wherever you are.

    Seriously. Only when men started becoming nurses were we permitted to stop dressing like nuns. Now RNs are supposed to start dressing like Student Nurses/orderlies again, go figure.
    There were always male nurses.

    Oh girl if it means that much to you!

    Will see what is in my old bedroom closet back at my parent's house. Failing that am sure lots of friends still have theirs chucked into some closet somewhere.

    Whatdoya want? St. Vincent's (no stripe), College of Staten Island (stripe), Wagner College (stripe), maybe even can scrounge up a Hunter-Bellevue (stripe). Choice is yours, knock yourself out!
    YOU'RE FROM STATEN ISLAND! SO AM I!

    HUNTER! That's where I started college in 1971, back when the earth was still cooling!

    THANK YOU!

    I didn't get a cap or a stripe. And I want one.

    You tell the nurse that you need to get up because the cows got out. See? Yonder beyond the crick!

    If you keep falling because you keep forgetting that you can't walk and need to pee and have a Foley you might have a problem.

    If you and the wife leave to go to Walmart and are intercepted by the RCMP because you overshot the mark by 100 miles, you may both have a problem.

    If you crack up the car before you get out of the garage and think the tow guy is trying to steal it, you may have a problem.

    If you are on the dementia unit and are looking for your car and are told it's in the parking lot and decide you have yet another car, you might have a problem.

    If you have been looking for your purse for six months and accuse everyone you see of stealing it, you might have a problem.

    Diuretics aren't generally given in the evening. Needing to pee constantly harshes the patient's night's sleep.
