  6. Why do some nurses come across to be rude?
    Even a person outside of healthcare can differentiate something like a sprained ankle for goodness sake. I've had multiple as a child/teenager/adult long before becoming a nurse. It didn't take...

  7. Why do some nurses come across to be rude?
    Ok, I just read this. If you complained about waiting on treatment for a sprained ankle in an ER I can now imagine people being less than pleasant. A sprained ankle needs ice and an Ace wrap, not a...

  8. Why do some nurses come across to be rude?
    I'm getting the same vibe as you here. This feels rather "trolling" to me. I have many patients hug me as they leave the hospital and families that thank me over and over for their care. I hear...

  9. IVP pain med safety
    This is a bit mind boggling to me. I've pushed Dilaudid or Morphine almost every shift I've ever worked and I'm just on a regular old Med-Surg unit. We get a lot of post-op and they regularly...

  10. does anyone use a medical prestige stethoscope?
    I had one during nursing school and it's the one I keep in my home healthcare bag. I think it's great. I carry my Littmann at the hospital because it's. But lighter and a gift so I don't want it...

  11. This is a stretch to call HIPAA violation
    That is ridiculous. I'm sorry your office didn't back you up. While it would have probably been better to hand the summary to the parent, depending on the age of he teenager, there truly is no...

    It was closed?!?! What the heck?? ETA: I jumped over there to check it out and it doesn't seem to be closed. Don't know what's going on.

    I love nursing students as well! The hospital I work for is critical access so we don't have college level nursing students but we do have high school vocational students in CNA classes who shadow. ...

  14. How to Respond?
    Give a basic, straight forward report and they will eventually back off. When nurses ask me questions during report that really aren't necessary, I usually respond "that can be found on the chart"...

  15. Professionalism....name your irritation here!
    Bwahaha! Sorry, didn't mean to derail. It does usually shock people when they find out my size. A nurse I work with just asked me today and I thought she was going to fall over when I told her. 😄...

    I commented on that. I don't normally but it was seriously terrible. I can't imagine that first job (assuming NCLEX is passed) will go well.

  19. Professionalism....name your irritation here!
    Being a 36 means that I'm not huge in the rib cage so it helps overall as far as things like shirts fitting. If I get XL or bigger then it looks like I'm wearing a muumuu. A large tends to be...

  21. family members working in the same hospital and exact same unit

  24. How do you revive after being terminated ??
    I got your friend request and accepted. The easiest thing to do is call HR and just ask what will be said when prospective employers call. If you feel like you're not getting a straight answer...

  25. How do you revive after being terminated ??
    Obviously I have no idea what the circumstances of the termination were but the best thing I can say is grieve for a short period of time (even a week if you have to) and then lift your head high and...
