    Are any of those patients currently reading all these stories? If so, could the real slim shady please stand up?

    Putting aside the misuse of "stigma" (did you maybe mean "status"?), as long as you can become an RN via an associate's degree (or even a baccalaureate degree, for that matter) nurses will never get the respect physicians do. I'm not saying I think that's a bad thing (personally, I have no problem with the idea of nursing as a blue collar occupation), it's just how the world works.

    Bloody hell! Autocorrect strikes again! I meant status. Thanks elkpark. So some for those rolling their eyes.

    Once had a patient whose family member downloaded and read the entire user manual for the Drager Evita ventilator. He then fully adopted the role of the expert in vent management, making recommendations on different modes of ventilation, adjusting settings, etc.
    And this is why there is no free wifi at the hospital. what a lunatic!

    I do something like this but when the resident stands there just staring, I tell them this is not Greys Anatomy. Snap out of it. Then they run to their attending. Then the attending comes to me and then it can go several ways to the point of pulling rank. But it does not go that far when I tell them there is a patients life under my watch and HELL NO, NOT on my watch.

    And since I am in a teaching facility which drives me nuts sometimes, I tell all the noobs to stand against the wall and do not get in the way.

    I work on a critical care unit nights. We generally have 3 to 4 patients with once in a great while 5 if staffing is short. If we are titrating drips then we try to keep it at a 3:1 ratio
    What kind of unit? Surgical? Medical? or combined?

    We have video cams in the med room. Why? Diversion is a big issue is some departments. I recently had to be a chairperson for someone that came under investigation. Some med rooms are located in areas of little to no traffic (after work hours) like the GI lab and Cath lab.

    Those cameras do a good job recording and give you a lot of detail. Where they fall short, is when when the controlled substance is taken away from the field of view of those cameras.

    We do nothing! Let it linger so the annoying family leaves.
