    A LPN is a Licensed Professional Nurse and anyone who doesn't understand and respect that isn't worth your time. You are 100% a nurse. They're ignorant.

    I've politely told visitors it would be in the patient's best interest if they visited another day when they were feeling better. Don't come hacking up a lung when a patient is so vulnerable....

  16. Complain more please! It is just an hour!
