  7. Best Mispronunciation?
    Way back in the day I remember some women in the GYN clinic complaining about passing "clogs" during their periods. I like new shoes too but that was ridiculous!

  8. No worries USA.  Only healthcare workers will be exposed to ebola.
    Even with the strictest isolation protocols in place, all it takes is one careless staff member to "forget". At my old job the LPN would wear her gloves up and down the hall and ALWAYS claim she just...

    I used to work in a male prison and I swear the "men" there were the worst about pain. Yeah some were drug abusers in the past and had serious drug seeking behaviors. But really, you didn't think it...

  11. Oh, honey.
    I work in a prison now and it's funny how many guys "slip and fall in the shower" and get fractured jaws that need to be wired and orbital fractures. Must be some super slick soap they are using.

  14. Diversity.. at what price?
    I feel everyone's frustration. I work in a setting where the non-English speakers outnumber the english speakers. Some do not have even the basic grasp of the language. If they don't understand what...

  15. Wexford health care in corrections
    Well, Wexford lost the bid and we still have CMS. I think the thing with using PTO to make up time if you are late is universal in corrections. It's the same here with CMS. It has something to do...

    If someone hasn't already said it let me say that she cut her own career short. Don't feel sorry for someone who so flagrantly disregards their own safety not to mention patient safety. Feel sorry...

    No, we are just as short staffed as ever. At least at my site I haven't noticed any new nurses. Especially new grads which besides orientation have to be trained!:eek:
