    Do Residents sleep? Umm they even give them beds? after 13 years on nights it comes down to if there is coverage and how sound you sleep. Resting your eyes for 15 minutes while the floor is covered seems alot less illegal than administration that put pts. at risk using overworked , overtired, staff.

    I just ordered a brand new zire on ebay. I cant wait to get it. I found some palm downloads at Cnet.com? Now I can make animated cartoons during my medpass ( sarcasm there!), even some med dose programs, or on a bad night I can use an omen predictor test to see if my nose is itching means I have mandatory overtime coming or if it means the new homeles pt. has scabies. Seriously there is an omen predictor test along with many other neat free downloads

    Many years ago, just out of school I watched the "staff" on nights sleep while my eyes burned. Then one night I kicked back in a gerichair for my break at 3a. Wow such a blessing for my weary feet that lunch hour came and went and so did the morning shift at 7a with state survey in the building. No nurse has ever done the am medpass so wildeyed and frantic saying, "what a busy night, I am so behind now". Older and wiser now, it's visine and coffee for me!

    Since when can a nurse diagnose and prescribe? Right to work doesn't give any facility right to abuse. Next time it happens someone should say to the DON ( politely of course), "No problem but my Dr. wants all new treatments OK'd with him so can you tell him what you are giving me?"

    Although I was suspicious that a well liked co-worker had an illegal drug habit, I became aware that it extended to work hours. It was brought to my attention as supervisor that he was "nodding out" and several patients had complained that they never recieved pain meds. With little research, I had 10 narc errors on one shift. Increased dosages, unexplained prns, unordered frequencies.. all signed at times he wasn't on the floor, to patients who complained they never got meds. To boot, he came outright asked me if I would "sell " him Tyl #3's at 8 bucks a piece.( He crushed and snorted them ... new one for me) . I truly believed I had a legal as well as ethical obligation to turn him in. Now he has been fired and I am public enemy number one at work. The narc who ratted out one of the popular crowd. Now I am shunned, threatened, and the victim of false accusations. Most of all, I am confused.. was I wrong? Is this what nursing is about...?
