    Why do you teach them this? In the real world I have never seen this done and we were taught the same nonsense in nursing school. I'm not going to waste time fiddling around with a poop filled...

    Pinkfluffybunny i agree. This is why I'm going forward as the nurse who smiles and nods, as if I can't read or understand English. Limited communication is my new motto. Here is my new work...

  19. The ridiculousness of basing reimbursement on customer satisfaction
    It's all a bunch of nonsense. What is the worst case scenario for the staff RN if patient satisfaction scores aren't top notch? We will be denied a raise, likely 2%. That's much less than $1000.00...
