    Sounds like this was their way of coping with the pain. I'd be more concerned with managing it than what coming out of their mouth. Besides every one has different tolerance levels.

    Galleria is a nice location but known for heavy traffic and the prices are similar to Rice Village area or upper kirby with significant reduced drive time and same amenities....
    FYI...Former galleria area resident

    Just turn on your cellphone on record go close to him and say " oh doctor would you please repeat the whole conversation about nurses being monkeys? I just want to make sure I get an accurate description for human resources "
    That should fix him πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

    The problem with us Nurses we accept and start positions without getting a job description, hours, pay and out of norm expectations in writing. Always ask for this before you start otherwise your job description becomes a he said she said discussion!

    So...we updated our IABP datascope to maquet touch screen. I love the new gadget because it is much lighter and more backups. However, in the last 3 months I have had 4 consoles just power off with no automatic restart. I am wondering whether anyone has encountered anything of the sort.
    No pt movement during incidents. Thank you

    I had sworn never date anyone from work! After seeing so much drama between people when they break up at work lol. Not to mention those residents that slept with any girl that thought was cute. One fellow slept with over 6 nurses on my floor! Imagine the drama when he married someone his parents preferred πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ it was hell scheduling assignments no one wanted to see the other πŸ˜‚
    I was the "mean scary charge nurse" that didn't flirt with the residents....or that's what one of the residents told me when he became the attending! I would rather have that title than some titles they gave nurses during their little parties!!!
    Met my hubby in comicon....yes I am one of those nerds😜 and love it!

    ECMOs are 2 RNs to 1 pt. 1 RN just for ECMO. Otherwise they have to get us a circulatory support to run the ECMO. I don't see how you can have 2 pts. ECMO pts in my experience are " a hot mess πŸ”₯! "

    The professor was very nice! I know a few professors that would have sent the students home with zero credit and an email to the dean!!
