  1. What if the Boston bomber was your pt
    I work for the police department in a local jail. I'm always professional, but not warm and fuzzy. That will get you hurt. I see murderers, rapists, child molesters, drunk drivers, child abusers,...

  2. What Type of Nursing is Right for Me?
    The beauty of nursing is that you can switch 'specialties'. Go where you're pulled. I've been in nursing since 1972, most of it psych. Most pts have some underlying psych dx. Plus, if you know your...

  3. Pulled from floor by "Men in Black"
    Why would you discuss ANY pt with ANYONE without knowing who they were? You've put yourself in a jam! Hope you have a good lawyer and malpractice insurance!! Even a good lawyer will tell you to keep...

  4. Was I at fault? the nurse embarrassed me in front of others.
    She's lazy. Plain and simple! It drives me crazy when RN's have time to complain about something that we could have taken care of ourselves. It would have taken a few minutes to answer the light and...

  5. Bullies at the work place.. vent
    I think there's one like this in every facility. I wouldn't tell her anything! She sounds like she'd cover it up or just lie. Your responsibility is to your patients and yourself. You don't want to...

  7. Is there a proper way to chart what a patient/resident says?
    "The truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth". Sounds like you have more on your hands than an ugly, foul mouth pt. You have co-workers who 'yell at you'. I wouldn't put up with it. You were...

  10. Allowing Pt's Parent to Take Meds Home
    Wake him up. He'll eventually fall asleep again. Like was said before, you're responsible for giving the meds ordered. If there's a problem, how does it look in court?

  11. Office nurse or LTC?
    I wouldn't compromise my values for any price. If the MD's aren't docs that you would go to and take your family to, I wouldn't work for them. It's not worth putting your license at risk.

  17. Owning a home in California
    Buy it!! It's not going to get cheaper. You will have tax writeoffs. You will own it. You will not waste money on rent. You will be settled. We bought our home in 1976 for $90,000. 4...
