    Or work from home. My office chair is .. shall we say.. quite warm and supple.

    34 years at it. I can say my "favorite" thing is .. I saved more than a few lives.

    I also made a whole lot of patients comfortable.. and sent them out better than when they came in.

    Don't get me going as to..what it took from me ...to do that.

    I have read a couple of posts lately where people are complaining about people farting breaking wind, passing gas etc...

    What exactly is the big deal? The average person farts 14 to 20 times a day and if you say you don't fart you're either lying or you are an alien species.

    Yes it can be gross and smell bad but it's like poop it just happens sometimes.

    A natural event , surely. Socially/politically correct.. never.

    Farting in public is .. and will always be unacceptable. I don't understand this social more. But, when in public.. my cheeks are firmly clenched.

    After working one year in a toxic environment I decided that I had to leave that hospital. I applied and got a call back from all of the hospitals I applied to within 2 weeks. It's crazy to think how valuable just 1 year can be to employers. For me I still feel brand new some days. It took me one year out of my ADN program to find a hospital job.

    Here's the question tho: the job I accepted is 45 mins of highway driving on a good day. It is literally the highest ranked hospital in my area. I will be driving past other good hospitals to go there. The pay is higher and the benefits are great but it is a distance. So I'm I crazy?
    For me the commute adds insult to injury. I am spending additional time and effort getting to a strenuous job. The commute home can be downright dangerous after a 12 hour shift when exhausted from a very long nurse's day . Inclement weather makes the commute even worse.
    Previous posters have said they use that time to listen to music and relax. More power to them, I can never relax behind the wheel.. too many idiots and texters to look out for.

    The legalities of this will be well hidden in a hospital policy.

    Good luck, stay safe.. let us know what happened.

    Are you there to help your dad or cause trouble? When my hospitalized grandmother was waiting "too long" for a diaper change, I changed it myself ...and I wasn't even a nurse back then. If your dad's foot slipped off a pillow, prop it back up. Staff on their phones may be on break or even dealing with patient care. I often use the timer and calculator on my phone.
    I'm curious what type of nursing work you actually do. Your heart may be in the right place, but you come across as somewhat obnoxious and controlling.

    She is there to make sure dad gets decent care. She is getting flack for it.

    It is not up to her to change his diaper, or reposition him. Some (cough, cough) nurses will give her grief for doing so. Your lack of compassion/ understanding in this scenario is astounding.

    This"old nurse" must have been doing something wrong. 3 years in , I was still scared I did not know my stuff. You must be amazingly talented to already know every disease process and surgical procedure.. and the best nursing practice for each.
