  4. What to do about thin skin on hands from washing them too much?
    Good old vaseline. Make sure your hands are wet/damp so that it can lock in the moisture. I have severely dry hands (made worse with nursing) and I'm still trying out lotions and so far none of...

  5. Co workers as fb friends
    Maybe it would be better deactivate that account and set up a secret one with just the people you really are close with. That's what I did - so when they asked - I truthfully answered that I...

  8. What's your weird quirk?
    I don't know if other people do this - but EVERY single time I have to give a subq/IM shot - i try about 4-5 times (point get, get close, withdraw without touching the skin) before I inject. If I...

  9. Demeaned by a Doctor
    I wouldn't let her talk to me like that in front of a patient. You don't have to be yelling or saying curse words to be sounding rude. Tone can say a lot.

    Where pts hands have been? We're always helping them to transfer, get up, change etc. I noticed that a lot of the pts with mobility issues who have beside commodes or urinals do not have means of...

  11. Ever lost a job offer because of your reference?

  13. Flu Vaccine, enough already!
    We were just told that if we didn't get the flu shot and called in sick we would not get paid. I can't believe they are getting away with this.

  15. do you make sure your pts
    I'm not arguing about the basics here. Each person has an area that they are more concerned with than others. For me it's poop & pee. If a pt wets their bed or diaper - whether or not they are mine -...

  16. do you make sure your pts
    I see where you are coming from now because you have taken my frustrated comment wrong. Very, very wrong. I don't give a rat's patootie about other people's jobs unless it relates to mine. I meant...

  17. Are shy and quiet people not allowed to be nurses?
    I'm the same way. It was a choice between teaching and nursing - and I went for nursing because I dealt 1:1 with pts. I did horribly with large groups (which showed during class presentations). ...

  22. Dx: Paralysis secondary to hospital admission
    I had a young guy in his forties who was up and about but had his wife wash his bum in the bathroom after bowel movements. I almost threw up. I was too shocked/weirded out to say anything. Gross.
