  2. Davita Onboarding Process
    Actually I think the background check does include a credit check. Read the fine print on the form you signed agreeing to the background check. You should have received a full disclosure on what will...

    Here's another quote or two from this article to go on our banner: "Nurses are an elitist group who truly believe that they are special ." "....these days most nurses are barely better suited...

  7. It's Bash-a-Nurse Day in the media.
    Lol. :) And my "favorite" comment from one respondent to this article should be on the "Bash-A-Nurse Day" banner: "Last few times I visited the hospital I was amazed by how dumb some of the...

  10. It's Bash-a-Nurse Day in the media.
    Saw this "article," and while at face value the nurses in question are pathetic, I was kind of shocked at the responses from the public. Close to 900 responses that mostly relay their own personal...

  12. How can I hate my job?
    How you doin' today, FransBevy? I know the grind can really be wearing. It's natural to become a bit disillusioned, especially with the corporate model. I do hope it works out for you.

    Last hospital system I was in (short term contract; large metropolitan area) had video cameras in every nook and cranny, and in many patient rooms. This included the basement. As far as I could tell,...

  16. Just a Nurse
    (I've been an RN for quite some time, so this may be a generational issue.) The other day I was entering the elevator at work with several other people. A male visitor boarded the elevator at the...

  17. Tag teaming with a tech in acutes
    Oh no way. Not if you can not see the patient and reach them pronto. And how many times are dialysis patients in the ICU actually in adjacent rooms? Not often. And that would be the only way I...

  22. Help! I look young!
    Just wait, honey, it is only a few years until you wake up one day, look in the mirror and exclaim, "Who did that to my face? That is not my face." You'll feel all better then, because no one...
