  2. Male Chest Hair and Scrub Tops
    This isn't anything I've ever thought of. I mean..why is it offensive? If they require men to cover the chest hair, why not arm hair, beards etc...? Why is hair offensive?

  5. Now is this abandonment?
    I didn't think CNA's could "abandon" pt's as they are the nursing assistants. They don't technicaly assume responsibility for the pt's do they?

  6. Procedures for Admissions
    When I was a CNA in LTC I can't think of a time when we EVER accepted an admission that late. I think they set up appropriate times for them to come in. Good luck though in resolving your problems.

  7. Any Red flags for a LTC NOT to tak the JOB

  8. Would this offend you?
    I think it's very honest of them. If they took the child, knowing they couldn't handle it- then every mood swing that child has they'll wonder and blame on a possible illness. That wouldn't be...

  15. Nurses with tattoos?
    I love it- and honestly I love the whole sex kitten nurse thing as well. Growing up I always viewed most nurses as older, overweight, and crabby. I love that I can be young and sexy, and STILL be...

  21. Less likely to get hired as a PREGNANT new grad?
    They can't discriminate because you're pregnant- however- I don't think they have to hold your job while you're on maternity leave unless you've been an employee for 1 year. Also- something to...
