    All day breakfast - Are you kidding me?!

    Aren't you amazed by patients (and families) who think nurses are there to wait on them hand and foot. Yes, we provide service around the clock, but it is not in the form of food but medical care. What are some of the most ridiculous requests you have gotten?

    How do I send private messages?

    Private messages work a little like email, but are limited to registered members with 15+posts. you may include bb code, smilies and images in private messages that you send.

    You may send a private message to a member by clicking the Private Message found under your Account.

    How do I work with private message folders?

    By default, you will have two folders in your private message area. These are the 'Inbox' and the 'Sent' items folders.

    The 'Inbox' folder contains any new messages you receive. It allows you to view all the messages you have received, along with the name of the person who sent it, and the date and time it was sent.

    The 'Sent items' folder contains a copy of any messages that you have sent.

    You can create additional folders for your messages by clicking the 'Edit Folders' link.

    Each folder has the following options which can be found at the bottom of the list:

    • Move to folder
    • Delete
    • Mark as read
    • Mark as unread
    • Download as xml
    • Download as csv
    • Download as text

    You will need to periodically delete old messages. Each type of membership has a limit to the number of private messages one can have in their folders. If you exceed this number, you will not be able to send or receive new messages until you delete some old ones.

    If you would like to keep a record of your messages before you delete them, you can use any of the 'Download as..' options listed above to take a copy and store them on your own computer.

    Whenever you read a message, you will have the option to reply or forward it to another member. You may also have the ability to forward that message to multiple members of your contact list.

    How do I track messages?

    when you send a new private message, you may (depending on type of membership) have the option to request a read-receipt. This lets you check whether or not a message has been read by its recipient. to do this, go to the 'message tracking' page.

    This page is divided into two sections: unread and read messages.

    The unread messages section shows all messages that you have sent with a read-receipt request, that have not yet been read by their recipient.

    The read messages section shows all messages you have sent with a receipt request that have been read and acknowledged by their recipient. The time that the message was read is also shown.

    You may choose to end the tracking on any message you choose by selecting it and clicking the 'end tracking' button.

    When you receive a message with a read-receipt request, you may have the option to read the message while denying the read-receipt request. To do this, simply click the 'deny receipt' link rather than the title of the message, if it appears.

    How do I know if I receive/have a message to be read?

    If you have messages waiting to be read in your inbox, you will be notified via a big red Alert Bar that will display at the top of the page. It will be visible on any page that you are reading. The Alert Bar is a big red bar that displays whenever you have an Unread Alert.

    Thank you ... appreciate your feedback

    Staff are instructed to move all site feedback topics to the Site Feedback forum because it's easier for admins to follow. And, to be honest with you ... it's easier for me to follow.

    We leave the Site Feedback forum open to catch ideas that may slip through the cracks. But, many suggestions go through our Admin Help Desk - a one to one private communications area.

    Unlike the Site Feedback forum, the Admin Help Desk is open to ALL - members and guests.

    Site Feedback is found at the bottom because it's not a priority for our readers. They are here for nursing.

    (Closing as this has been addressed.)
