  1. Nurses aren't maids!
    Inappropriate to ask, demeaning to expect/demand and use a condescending tone about it. How's that? Honestly, if the new family didn't talk down to me and believe/insist (along with the agency office...

  2. Nurses aren't maids!
    [QUOTE=systoly;5141053] First of all, I do serve others by being a nurse. I have *NEVER* complained about or thought it beneath me to clean a patient, help with bathing, or tackle a severe code...

    You should definitely run far away! Nurses aren't maids! Any nurse who allows herself to clean on the job should be kicked out of nursing. When dim witted nurses clean, people think we all should....

  4. Nurses aren't maids!
    I forwarded the problem to corporate because someone at the agency tried to tell me it's in the employee agreement I signed, and I re-read the agreement. It most certainly does not include cleaning...

    I shouldn't be asked to clean. Why doesn't anyone understand how demeaning it is to ask a professional to do that? When was the last time a physician was expected to do a patient's laundry?!

  6. Nurses aren't maids!
    Yes, the home health aide plan says that, because home health aides clean. It's not something that should EVER be on a nursing plan!

    Exactly! There are home health aides. If they need non-skilled care, they should do it, not licensed nurses! The only reason some agencies require or have rudely brainwashed nurses to think that it's...

  8. Nurses aren't maids!
    ***I became a nurse to help heal people, and that is all I care about - healing people. I do NOT give a rat's behind if anyone thinks I give good customer service. I do NOT strive for 5! I DO strive...

    We have to evaluate the environment, too, but the agreement signed by the parents states that it is the parents' responsibility to clear any obstacles (so they have to clean the mess blocking the...

  10. Nurses aren't maids!
    Nope - the care plan says nothing about housekeeping chores. My supporting the family means (to me) that mom and dad can sleep at night so they can work and do chores during the day. If the plan...

  11. Nurses aren't maids!
    I've been asked to babysit by 2 families (because the other nurses do it), but I didn't do it. See that's the problem. If we don't get the office to step in and say "this is not acceptable," the...

  12. Nurses aren't maids!
    I don't agree with your manager. If they really need those services, they can pay for home health aides. It is never the nurse's (RN or LVN - a nurse is a nurse) job to clean the patient's dishes or...

    Organizing medical supplies is a reasonable request, I think. I wouldn't complain about doing that. I've read my company's info on the web and what they gave the parents. Nowhere does it offer...

    I kind of understand what you're saying, but she did take a condescending tone about it, so I had to keep my mouth shut to avoid getting angry with her. She won't be blindsided if the agency tells...

  15. Ring Around the Ashtray, A Pocket Full of Smokes
    What's a break? Just kidding, well, not really. When I was a smoker, I would go out for three ten minute breaks per 12 hour shift to smoke and skip lunch *IF* I was lucky enough to get a break at...

    I was assured by someone at the national corporate office when I first took the job that corporate doesn't tolerate local offices expecting nurses to do household chores, and to report it to them if...

    I know, in hind sight, I wish I had done that. I was just so shocked by the whole encounter that I froze and couldn't say anything. If my agency doesn't intervene tomorrow, I will talk to her myself...

  18. overreacting or not, that is the question!?!
    You are definitely not over reacting! That was cold of both the doc and the nurse. Very unprofessional. I was treated similarly when I was sick once. Not only were my coworkers mad I was sick because...

    I'm sorry. I really, really need to vent. I work for a pediatric private duty nursing agency, and I'm an RN. This is what I wish I could say to my new patient's mom: Why the heck would you ask your...
