You guys, if you think about it, this site (allnurses) is kinda another form of facebook... for nurses. ha ha ha. it's addictive.
I hate to tell you, but no one is unsearchable. There are numerous sites that can tell where you live, your home and cell number, your age, where you were born, what schools you attended, and plethera of other things. If you payed a bill one time, had a landline in your name, graduateed from clas of --, were ever married or divirced...You are searchable. Even my 14 year old daughter is searchable. Sort of scary.
Remember something -- all of these bitter arrogant folks in that chat room were brave men sitting behind a computer protected by the anonimity of a screen name and probably were pale white, shriveled with fear, and saying something like the following -
"You think this order is wrong ? Ok, I will check with my resident, Mame and get right back to you" On the days when in they are in on the floors and a RN challenges their order.
I can't tell you what to do, but when I went to my drug screen my urine also came up too diluted. I didn't go overboard, but I did drink more than usual to make sure I would have to pee when the time came.
So, I had to sit there an hour without anything to drink and try again. Still too diluted. So, I had to wait another hour (without anything to drink) and try again. By this time I'm pee'd out. I'd emptied my bladder the first time thinking it would be all over. By test 3 I was squeezing drops. I was so worried, but eventually they got a good test and everything was fine.
It was a lesson learned...
I dont even have a FB account.
I deleted my facebook, or rather disabled. I found myself wasting time on it. I could use that time for much better activities. Just my opinion. Maybe, when Im done with school I will reactivate.
My Psych teacher was talking about a correlation study with falling grade averages at MIT because of the distractions of the internet on students in class. (IE. Playing on Facebook instead of taking notes on a laptop) Obviously, if you have good discipline to not log in then it doesn't matter.
Maybe but not because of nursing school or graduation.
I've long thought that anything put on the internet will never go away so everything I've ever put on the internet was put there with that in mind, facebook included.
I've also become ever more uncomfortable with the amount and type of information facebook can/has compiled about people. I don't think they have evil intentions but there is unintended consequences and they won't necessarily always be in control of it.
people dont recognize you in your cilvilian clothes..
and when you hear something beepng you imediately wonder whos alarm is going off.
If you've ever had a patient say... "I dunno, I fell on it," or "I must have rolled over onto it in my sleep," or "I don't even LIKE zucchini!"
You get really excited when your renal patients tell you they can urinate and how much.
You grab your stethoscope when hubby is sick to check his lung sounds, then toss it back around your neck like you're at work. Did this just the other night.
You know your a nurse when you are sitting in church listening to an elderly church member breathing behind you and your thinking, "use you inhaler, use your inhaler"
I can't believe it that today is finally my day to post this message. I finished my last exam today and will be attending pinning on friday after our mandatory NCLEX review... I will post more on my journey later
We had a patient, chronic CHFer, always on the call button, hated being on fluid restrictions. you know the type: the nurses have to take turns during the shift answering the call button so the primary can actually do other work.
And this was a frequent flier cause he was very chronic, very borderline, and the hospital was the only place he wouldn't fluid overload.
I work 7p-7a. He died about 8pm. Oh the look on his face, like, "how could you let me die!" - Like it was our fault.
Anyway, family came and gone by 9pm, funeral home gone at 930pm.
About 10pm, the call button starts going off. I was there - call button going off every 5 minutes.
One of the nurses was a very spiritual girl. At about 2am, after like 4 HOURS OF THIS, nurse Mary snaps, 'Enough!'
She walks down to the room, and, practically screams into the empty room, "Mr X, you have died. You can't be in here bothering us anymore. Move along. In the name of Jesus, I'm exorcising you from this plane of existence. Go to the light and be happy!"
And I kid you not, the call button stopped going off then and there.
[QUOTE=Jdon]I was working in the nicu when we had a threat of a tornado. Some Nurses got pulled to go to a sister hospital in town to assist in the disaster plan. When all was over one of the nurses returned with this story: She was assissting the nurses in giving some meds before pulling all into the hallways. Every pt she went to said they already had their meds from that nice nurse in the white uniform and hat. She realized after she left that its been awhile since a nurse has worn a hat. That story revealed the urban ledgen of Nurse Betty. Story goes she had an affair with a married md, became pregnant then agreed to allow him to perform an abortion on her on the 2nd floor OR room.She died and he went to jail. She never left the hospital and was seen frequently. The local newspaper would do an article of her every year around halloween on her sightings. The hospital has since been replaced with college dorms. Hmmmm i wonder if any students have seen her?[/QUO
Wow, a ghost that can physically give meds, that's pretty good!
I agree with Saysfaa. I just wanted to add that they are EXTREMELY helpful with A&P and even micro.
