    I think I might just take the beer for a ride out in the country. I am sure my next door neighbor would be my DD so they would not have to go home warm. They could cool my tummy, and I could fight the post work dehydration.
    And if the call bell was not gone by the time I got home it would swim with the fishes and so would the person who intalled it.

    My boyfriend and I are both nurses. I'm glad he would know better than to pull this type of move.

    My husband isn't a nurse, but he still knows better than to pull a stunt like that. LOL He gets front row center seats to my frequent rants about what I'd love to do to the inventor of the call light if I ever got the opportunity.

    I have to brag on my husband; he's a restaurant cook who works 2nd shift. He cooks all afternoon and evening, but on the days that I work, he still comes home and cooks dinner or brings dinner home from the restaurant. He knows that I'll be wiped out after my shift, so he doesn't expect me to do anything after work. Bless his sweet heart, I'm sure the last thing he wants to do is to come home and cook more, but he takes care of me.

    Call bells are even worse at my hospital because we recently installed a phone system that's tied to the call bells. When a pt hits their call light, it calls the RN. Even worse, just answering the call doesn't turn off the call bell; we have to physically go to the room and shut it off there. Of course, 99% of the calls could be handled by the aide. I entertain myself with thoughts of all the ways I could heap torture on the inventor (and buyers lol) of this system if I ever came face to face with them - and could get away with it.

    I had a patient the other night who was very pleasantly demented, she learned that if she pressed the button I would magicly apear like a cheerful genie of nursing. every time i walked into the room she would just giggle at me while i turned off the bell. it was a not so busy, kinda fun good night so it was actually pritty funny. and she was just so cute i couldnt be upset.
