At work, we carry our work phones. they basically look like cell phones but can only make calls within the hospital. They also can get calls from outside the hospital so if families want to contact the nurse we can just give them our direct number. So when we get calls from Families, PT, Doctors, Central monitoring, basically everything they just call our direct line instead of going through the HUC and the main line at the desk. Super nice, cause we have a phone with us ALL the time.
So....everytime i answer my work phone i say "Cardiology this is Jenni, RN"
My habit? I answer my personal cell phone and home phone like this. Today my fiance's coworker called our house phone, which NEVER rings. i answer it "Cardiology this is Jenni, RN" all i hear is "uh...................Is this Cory's number?"...oops
Anyone else find them self having habits like this at home?
