    Most people with any smarts who are on Medicare get a secondary plan to cover that 20% that isn't covered. It's much cheaper than paying the 20%.

    I would assume he's thinking of when she inevitably ends up needing to be on SSDI, making her a moocher on the taxpayers...just like I'm a moocher because I'm on SSDI due to cancer.

    But that's their problem. I agree with others that you need to set a firm date when your taxi service is going to be cut off. You're not being selfish; if anything, you have been more than gracious.

  4. The Fat One
    Agree. In the previous example, describing the color of the scrubs would have been sufficient. Even using hair (or lack of hair) would be OK. But saying someone is a "dumpy blonde" is just...

  5. To tell or not to tell!
    Instead of tattling and risking problems with your manager and co-workers, be the change you want to see. You may find your co-workers with lazy habits picking up on your example. I would go with...

  6. Being Bullied
    Yes, it's always the old crone v. the sweet, doe-eyed new nurse. The old stereotypes just won't die.

  7. Being an individual
    Being clean and wearing scrubs that are clean and not rumpled should be enough. If you want to be "fashion forward" at work, that's fine, but there's no need to judge those who have no need/desire to...

  9. The Nightingale Pledge - still relevant today?
    I didn't go to my pinning because there were religious elements I disagreed with. My school threatened to not give me my pin. That turned into a battle royal; how could they withhold something I...

  10. I am an ER doc.  I wrote a short story about a girl having a seizure.
    I read that book many years ago, and I agree, it was a very good read. Thank you for sharing your experience, Phillip. You're right about time seeming to crawl when a patient is seizing. You...

  12. No Scrubs Allowed.. opinions??
    If everyone wears the same uniform, it gives the illusion that the facility is better staffed than it actually is. It has nothing to do with a "Kumbayah, we're all in this together" sentiment.

  13. The Nightingale Pledge - still relevant today?
    It saddens me that nurses want to abolish every bit of our history. I have no problem with the Nightengale Pledge; we said it at our capping ceremony and again when we graduated in 1985. Like...

  14. I feel uncomfortable doing this
    If you write a letter, you're responsible for what you say. Suppose this family member has a history that would make him/her unsuitable for nursing? (OP stated she thought this was for nursing...

  15. Is this a VALID reason to terminate someone?
    You don't seem to get that when you say you've done something you haven't, e.g. signing off on a procedure you didn't do, it's lying, plain and simple. It matters not what you've seen other nurses...

    When you post on a public forum, you are going to get a variety of replies, and not all of them are going to be what you want to hear.

    If he comes home first, it's unlikely he'll want to have to turn around and go back to the library.

  20. Dreadlocks
    There was a nurse in one of the hospitals where I worked who had dreadlocks. He worked in the ED. They looked good on him. JMO, but I think dreads look better on people of color than Caucasians.

  24. Snow & calling out of work
    Yeah, around here, if you call someone any of those syrupy, saccharine terms or endearment (or not), it would not go over well. It's not us taking things the wrong way. It's just not done in this...

  25. Perfume at work?
    It may not smell strong to you, but to someone with fragrance sensitivity, it may be strong. Save it for outside of work.
