Sex in the workplace.....what do YOU think should be done? - page 19

Recently, at our small community hospital, the only hospitalist on the 7p-7a shift wasn't answering his pager when a CCU nurse was looking for him about a patient. After several attempts to reach... Read More

    Yeah, ITA. At first I thought she had just been misinformed in the way that gossip always mutates the facts, but now I think the whole thing is likely just made up. No one gets that upset over this stuff. It has to be a joke.
    Now I do respect that people have strong feelings about adultery, and everyone needs to live by their personal moral code, but some of the posts started striking me as so judgmental and self righteous, it made me think of Dana Carvey as Church Lady doing her "superior dance." I tried to get a link and post it, but dang, it's copyrighted.

    Question for the OP: How exactly are you impacted by this? Is your work, your patient (real, not theoretical) being influenced by their behavior? If not, why such an interest in the prurient details? Why such an investment in seeing them "punished"?
    Maybe the best course of action for all would be to put their energy into doing their job and not worry about tending to other's behavior.

    The ccu nurse had an axe to grind. We, each, are responsible for our own behavior. "the morality police", strikes me as very medival/talibanish. You don't have to associate with them, in any way. Unless their behavior impinges on your rights/world, it is NOT YOUR BUSINESS.
    I have a feeling the affair had been going on for a while, and the Doc had a habit of ignoring pages when his honey was around. That night was most likely the straw that broke the camel's back, and the off-duty nurse was collateral damage. When the CCU nurse got her supervisor, she was probably thinking "Doc, you have left me in the lurch for the LAST TIME!" If that was the case, I don't blame the CCU nurse one bit.

    All of this drama could have been avoided if the Doc had simply answered his pages, and kept the romance off-site. Actions have consequences.

    It is a MYOB when it is off the facilities. I shouldn't have to go to work worrying that I may walk in on two of my colleagues having sex with each other. It is inconsiderate of them and if they didn't want this situation they should have waited until he was off duty.Jeeze. Some people...
    Walk in or call the supervisor, and maintanence to take down the door, not to be crude but I am suprised the whole event lasted that long. ...........

    I'm still amazed that there was a Maintenance person ON SITE during the night shift! AND - he was available and able to open a locked door. WOW!

    Gossip isn't the most attractive quality either but I keep coming back to the fact that these two people were so dumb. And, at the end of the day, I'd rather be a gossip than a *****.

    Now I know why some of our call rooms smell so nasty. Guess its a good thing that I always change the sheets on the beds in there too.

    Why does it have to be either/or? How about neither?
