    Tell me you did NOT just turn a legitimate discussion of patient care issues into an attack on the personal appearance of someone whom, oh yeah, you have NEVER MET??!!?? Tell me you somehow meant that ironically and the joke just fell horribly flat. Because otherwise that is the cheapest shot in the recorded history of cheap shots.


    If you are so much of a **** that you don't know who the "baby daddy"is, it's time for some personal growth and reflection, preferably with your LEGS CLOSED.
    And shay, honey--you slay me!

    This thread made me think of a story I read this morning. It's OT, but it made me want to bang my head on the wall when I read how old this mother was and how many kids she had!

    When I meet someone who MAKES NO JUDGEMENTS WHAT-SO-EVER (whether they be with patients or self or society as a whole) THEN I KNOW I HAVE MET A NON-HUMAN WHO IS INCAPABLE OF CRITICAL THOUGHT. GIVE ME A FREAKING BREAK!!!!!!

    My good friend, JUDGEMENT is what keeps you from drinking six gin and tonics and getting behind the wheel of your car to drive.

    JUDGEMENT is what you use when you choose to discipline your kids in a way that does not damage their physical condition or psyche.

    JUDGEMENT IS WHAT KEEPS MANY LAWFUL CITIZENS THAT WAY!

    NURSING JUDGEMENT tells us when a situation is unhealthy and we don't have to approve of it-----but we do render professional care despite OUR JUDGEMENTS!

    Like Shay said, walk a mile in our shoes, deal with what we do on a daily basis and YOU GO AHEAD AND RESERVE JUDGEMENT if you possibly can----and if you SAY you can you are a liar. Maybe a *skinny* liar, but a liar nonetheless. Me, I am a fat cow who uses her JUDGEMENT.:chuckle

    Can I be big-bootied nurse who uses her judgement?

    WHOA?
    Guess you missed that one.
    It's not my place to make a VALUE JUDGEMENT on my patients, nurses's on this BB "Welfare Queens" ETC. Until I walk a mile in their shoes.
    Calm down

    WE make value judgements EVERY DAY...it's being HUMAN and last I checked, we are all human. It's what you DO with that JUDGEMENT that sets you aside.....or not.
