  5. IV pushes
    I'm sorry but I have to say this..that person you work with is not safe. Let us know if she decides to "SLAM" a patient with Lasix IV. Push slow on most things and when in doubt call pharmacy. ...

  8. Should I wear this to the next staff meeting?
    I think this shirt is rather hilarious. It is so true. Safety (although it has been taught to be our number 1 priority) often falls to the wayside unfortunately. You know...because it is safe for...

  14. Fake call outs irritate me
    I partially agree with this. Every now and then (very seldomly) I call out when I am not sick. Sometimes I just need a day off. I have not taken a real vacation that was longer than a weekend in...
