No phones allowed

  1. 0 Everyone is talking about what the best apps are to use on the job. Lucky for those of you that are permitted to have your device on your person.
    The LTC facility I am employed in forbids us from using our phones unless we are off the clock on our breaks.
    It would be nice to be able to load and use a useful app during my work day. . .

    I have several, mostly because when I was looking for them, I chose the ones with the best ratings/reviews.
    --Medscape
    --iTriage
    --Eponyms
    --Micromedex Drug Info

    And my personal favorite, use all the time at the office I'm at now - Epocrates. Hopefully I'll find more great ones. If I do, I'll certainly share!

    Ipod Touch. You will get all the apps for the iPhone but there's no phone

    Thanks for the responses, I will take a look at some of these apps that I can refer to on my own. As I stated in my original post, we are NOT PERMITTED to have, on our person, ANY type of electronic device.

    no you didn't--you wrote "... forbids us from using our phones unless we are off the clock on our breaks" and phone =/= iPod Touch.

    I'm sorry, I hadn't realized that when I said phones that I should have also stated, no phones, or any other electronic device. I didn't mention it because nobody has brought anything but phones.

    Off topic here, but just curious, why would you reply to a post with the phrase "Ummm", that sounds to me as if it were composed by a 12 year old. I've noticed that several posters write this way, personally it doesn't sound very mature to me.
    Am I the only one who thinks this?
    Just a guess, but it might be because you CAPITALIZED words for EMPHASIS in your response, which might come off as trying to sound sarcastic or speaking to someone like they're slow. So when they responded, they were like "Umm..." because they might have been taken aback by your 'tone'.

    At one job, I can have my phone on me as long as I don't abuse the privilege (e.g., no personal phone calls in patient areas or surfing on Facebook). So I do get to use some pretty helpful apps during the workday. Also, text messaging is how a lot of the staff communicates with MDs and each other if we're not able to reach someone at their desk/office phone.

    Another job has a strict ban on cell phones. As having the job is more important to me than having an app at my fingertips, the phone stays in my locker.

    If an iPod is also prohibited, I'd carry my notes with me in a binder.
