Is this badge holder too morose? - page 2
Personally, I like it:)... Read More
1Jun 24, '12 by Daisy_08, BSN, RNMiss. Priss, while those are perfectly lovey. They are made of material and huge trap for germs and bacteria. You cannot clean that off, or wash off poop either! Trust me, poop on your badge, not uncommon. However thanks for introducing me to that site. Looks awesome.
OP - the skull is iffy, but i don't think any patients would really notice. It looks pretty from a-far. The Juicy one however is...just don't.
2Jun 24, '12 by K+MgSO4these are all holiday destinations for bacteria and UFOs. What if you get blood on them? you'll never get it out of the crevices.
Also the bling could fall off and end up in your pt food, abdomen (during dressing change or if someone's guts decide to pop open post op -- it happens)
I wear my hospital issued badge holder that can be wiped with a cleaning wipe or alco swab.
1Jun 24, '12 by Hygiene Queen, RN GuideQuote from Esme12I really like the cameo, itself, as I love broaches... and I like them interesting.While I appreciate the OP's, I actually like it...... Choose juicy...uhmmmm, No.
The perky pink flower, while cheerful......might stick out when you are giving the news to a parent that their teenager just died in the trauma bay.
It just doesn't belong in a hospital.
And the "juicy" one.
Aren't we over this "juicy" crap yet?
Juicy does not belong either.
I agree with K+MgSO4 about bacteria.
So no bling-bling...
Save it for your personal life where it will be much more appreciated... and keep it sharp at work.
3Jun 24, '12 by KelRN215, BSN, RNQuote from kayruhhI would NOT recommend a "Choose Juicy" badge holder- not professional. I would also not recommend a "We Can Cure It" badge because, well, sometimes you can't. I came from a hospital that would say things like that all the time- "if anyone can cure it, we can"-and it created nightmare situations when they couldn't. "What do you mean you can't cure my child's incurable brain tumor? I sold all my possessions to bring her here because you are the best pediatric hospital in the country!"I also got these
How many badge holders do you need? You need ONE and it should be one that's easy to clean.
1I didn't know a badge hold was such a big deal. Sheesh. And no I'm not over that juicy crap yet. I actually like juicy couture merch
1Jun 24, '12 by Hygiene Queen, RN GuideQuote from kayruhhOh, some of it's cute, but you really don't want anything that says "juicy" on it.I didn't know a badge hold was such a big deal. Sheesh. And no I'm not over that juicy crap yet. I actually like juicy couture merch
Trust me, it just opens you up to crude comments.
We were once told that we had to wear badges that said, "Ask me if I'm good!"...
Now, most of us just flat out refused, but those (who were too afraid to buck the system) and wore them were convinced after one shift that it wasn't worth it.
Sorry, I didn't mean to offend you, but I have issues with brand-names up in my face every time I turn around... it's my own personal issue.
Seriously, I wasn't trying to be rude... I have my filters on now (it's called coffee).
3Jun 24, '12 by frankie,RNi think OP's badge kind of looks like the angel of death. not sure i'd be ready for that visit if i'm a patient.
3Jun 24, '12 by sapphire18, BSN, RN GuideYes, it is definitely unprofessional- why would you wear something with a skeleton on it while caring for people who are potentially fighting for their life??
The "choose juicy" one is also definitely a no-go...most places don't allow brand names on employee clothing.
The cloth ones are also a fun-factory for bacteria. You need something that you are able to clean off with an antibacterial wipe. Trust me.

I just wear the LifeFlight one I got lol.... & I def make sure my Id badge and all items associated with it are easy to clean lol
2Jun 24, '12 by KelRN215, BSN, RNQuote from kayruhhThat's fine but that still doesn't make it appropriate attire for work.
1Jun 24, '12 by PrimaFaciei've seen so many cutsie type things on uniforms that could potentially harbour bacteria and i just don't get why a nurse, who is supposed to be advocating for their patients would choose to endanger patients and themself just to be all b[color=#00ffff]edazzled at work.
maybe i have a stuffy, not-so-fun attitude about it but if you have to ask if it's ok, it probably isn't.
dress for work professionally while considering safety.
0I can understand the skeleton. I wasn't thinking when I posted this. It represents death to well. But I don't see a problem with wearing the Rosie the riveter one or the others as long as I got the ones without the crystals. I think you should be able to portray your personality a little.
