No bathroom break for 12 hours straight - A nursing record!

  1. 9
    12 hours is a long time! What's the longest you stayed away from a bathroom break? Personally, I think everyone should take a bathroom break. A good 10-minute break can do everyone some good. What do you think?

    I once worked a 16 hour shift and left the hospital at 11:30pm thinking "I didn't eat anything, drink anything or pee all day."

    12 hours is no big deal. I can go that long when I am out shopping! Joking aside, if I have to pee, I will go pee. I have accepted the fact that I will never be able to sit, undisturbed, and eat lunch for my 30 minutes (those 30 minutes I don't get paid for), but if I need a bathroom break, I will take it.

    I cannot believe no bathroom break in 12 hours... Unless you are a CRNA and cannot leave the OR on a 12 hour surg. Quit playing the poor me card... It sounds pathetic.

    If I have to go pee I will. Unless I'm in the middle of a code or rapid response there is no reason why you cannot take two minutes to go pee.
