What is the silliest complaint someone has ever made aboutyou? - page 10

I don't know what made me remember this but I had a coworker once with whom I had developed(I thought) something of a rapport. Well one day we were in the nurses' station and I jokingly made a... Read More

    I was told by a surgeon that I was salacious. ( I had given birth 3 months prior and d/t breastfeeding had centerfold-sized breats)

    I stand by my conclusion that humanity has evolved into a race of spoiled brats.
    Couldn't agree more.
    We are often forced to pander to the patients and the relatives.

    I had a RN complain that I had failed to put a PITOCIN label on a bag of LR. When I went in the pt's room to check (because I was sure I had) I showed it to her. She said she couldn't see it, because it was not on the right side(the pre-printed side, showing what type of fluid). I don't normally cover that side with a label, for the obvious reason - but maybe I should have realized you can't see a BRIGHT RED LABEL thru the clear fluid or that it was too difficult to turn the bag of fluid around to check for a label. I was actually written up and the Unit Manager reprimanded me, saying the way I did it was not the way the nurses did it at this particular hospital. (I was on a travel assignment). SoooooooSorryyyyyyy

    A young man, whi is a prince in his country, was working as a nursing assistant one summer. He said, "My father doesn't allow me enough spending money."
    Our charge nurse asked him to please get a patient a pitcher of ice water. He flately refused.
    He had a list of routing tasks given in orientation stating, "This is what I do. I fill the pitchers in the last two hours of the shift.
    She asked him again, "This patient is to dring as much as possible. Please get him some water.
    He refused again.
    My friend called the supervisor and said, "I am sending *** home."
    When the supervisor asked him why he stated, "I do not take orders from a female."

    He is now a neurosurgical resident. NOT at my hospital.

    I hope he has to assist when the surgeon is a woman.

    I once had a coworker ask the NM to assign me to another department (clinic) when her husband came to visit because he told her one night (after he had been drinking) that he thought I was attractive and had said MY NAME while they were having sex!

    I had a teen-age O.D. in ICU complain that I "just wanted to see her tits" when I was placing the leads for an ECG. She'd been complaining the whole time about what needed to be done, and this was the last straw for me - I told her that if all I wanted to see was breasts, I had a set of my own! Surprisingly, her Mom (who was present at the time) told her to behave herself, rather than reporting me.

    I was written up once, about 3 years ago, because of a patient complaint, that I was TOO cheerful. Apparently, this gentlemen was the facility grouch, and I, being an agency nurse, didn't know he was always in a bad mood. I had to be "counseled" by the nursing supervisor and sign the complaint statement. Well, goes to show, there is all kinds of people in the world.

    I have had compliants due to being a male nurse. I always figure it's their loss, I'm good at what I do, and my patients get excellent care.
