  1. The dumbest things you've heard from a provider
    Had a teenager getting a full neuro workup for altered mental status followed by a migraine the next morning. Otherwise known as drunk followed by a hangover to those of us with common sense. When...

  2. redirecting to old threads
    I think it's rude to expect us to do the work of rewriting the same answers over and over again because the OP is too lazy to do a search to find where those answers are already located.

  3. Computerized Charting Errors-Need Stories
    It sounds like OP wants things that are easy to mischart. It's sooooo easy now to accidentally chart in the wrong chart. I know it's always been a possibility, but I know that I'll find myself a...

  4. Patient shoots Case Worker + Doctor who pulls out own weapon, prevents masacre
    Why bother having any laws then? After all, only law abiding people follow them.

  5. What Would You Do?
    We're looking at a day long walk. Like 15 hours going non-stop. Until we get some steam powered shuttles going to get me closer? Probably staying there, haha!

  6. Are your choice of scrubs childish?
    Yep. If my patients/families are judging based solely on how I look, I must not have walked in the room yet. That said, when I worked with adults, I did prefer solids, they're just more flattering...

  7. What Would You Do?
    As far as I am from work, if I'm work, I'm apparently staying there. If I'm at home, I'm staying there. It's an hour drive. Walking? Ain't gonna happen. If I'm at work, going to hope my husband...

  8. "If you're not doing anything..."
    I'd jump at the chance to do something other than check email. Especially when I've been gone for a long period of time. If the email can wait 5 weeks, it can wait until a fax is done. It wasn't a...

  10. Patient shoots Case Worker + Doctor who pulls out own weapon, prevents masacre
    Heck, if everyone was normal, there'd be no need to carry a gun to protect yourself. So arguing that it's not "normal" for someone to randomly shoot people? Well of course it isn't, but it happens.

  11. Patient shoots Case Worker + Doctor who pulls out own weapon, prevents masacre
    If a person is on a path to kill somebody, he/she is going to pick the place where the people he wants to shoot are located. It doesn't matter what signs are posted.

  13. Thoughts on the prevalence of name discrimination in nursing?
    I think your applications being ignored have less to do with your name and more to do with a lack of experience and already looking for another job when you have hardly any time in at your current...

  14. Joint Commission is a Joke...
    I don't think anyone complaining about TJC is saying hospitals need LESS oversight. We're saying we want genuine and effective oversight of things that actually make patients safer. We want...

  15. Joint Commission is a Joke...
    I used to be. I knew TJC stuff inside out and was responsible for my unit's compliance. Things got cleaned up the week of. Staffing suddenly increased so we could actually do things "right." And...

  16. Adult Depends/Underwear
    Which is why I think jumping to judgment of the nurse isn't appropriate here. She was trying to come up with a way to keep the resident here where she's apparently happy. Unfortunately, there's...

  17. Adult Depends/Underwear
    Because it is ALF, not LTC. Residents shouldn't need that type of equipment. Resident needs to be moved to a higher level of care.

  18. Adult Depends/Underwear
    Briefs aren't going to help with this problem. Even if she eliminates in her brief, she'll need the brief changed. Which isn't going to feel good on your back either.

  19. Surrendering RN Scope!
    I think it is more that hospital administrators choose to implement ridiculous rules based on their interpretation of what TJC wants.

  20. Hospitals Providing More Time for Nurses to Spend with Patients
    I have plenty of time for patient care. Plenty. It's just split among too many patients.

    In the eyes of management, MDs make facilities money. Nurses cost money. So even when the victim of bullying, crying "bully" isn't going to help in a lot of cases. This is one of them. You're...
