  1. Help
    You could probably get a lawyer to legally change your name. Just kidding. :roflmao: Send a private message to the administrator maybe? Or a moderator might come along and help.

  2. No rapid response for a DNR?
    I think the nurse did the right thing. It's not like she called a Code Blue. She probably wasn't sure what exactly to do in the situation and needed some support. Isn't that what a Rapid Response is...

  3. question about nurses on methadone
    I'm on the "don't report" train. Even if it is used for addiction (which would be impossible to tell from a pharmacy record), I still don't think it could be reported if the nurse is a patient.

  4. question about nurses on methadone
    I work in a facility where we have a lot of patients who are addicts, recovering addicts, etc. Sometimes we have nurses, former nurses, etc. as patients. The question came up the other...

  5. Why do some nurses use their titles as a big ego boost?
    I think it could be that you're being sensitive. Who knows really without knowing the entire story, background, tones, etc. I know that when I first started working (at 16) I worked in a fast food...

  6. My Name is Susan
    I work in mental health and I'm disgusted by some of the things I hear my fellow nurses say. "Pill seeker" is a common phrase they'll use towards ANYBODY on narcotics, even people who have a very...

  7. Patient asked me what an IV med was for..i didnt know
    I didn't realize so many nurses were perfect. I come across medicines all the time that I have to look up. Luckily, I have a computer at my side when administering meds and a button I can click to...

  8. Does age matter when it comes to delegation?
    Thanks for the replies. I guess I just need to get over it and realize everybody isn't going to like me. It sucks to feel like nobody likes you though. :cry: Really, the nurses all seem to like me a...

  9. Does age matter when it comes to delegation?
    I'm going to try to keep this short, but basically I look younger than what I actually am. I know...sad, right? JK. Honestly, I'm wondering if looking like I'm 21ish has anything to do with how I'm...

  10. Score one for standardized scrub colors
    When I had my children, I never knew who the nurses were unless I happened to catch a glimpse of their nametag. Where I work now, we have color coded scrubs. Trust me, the patients notice. They...

  11. Stop complaining about your job - It could be worse.
    One of my RN co-workers was talking about all the bills she had to pay/repairs she had to do at her house in front of a patient one day. It wasn't really that unprofessional in the setting we are in...

  12. We all have our place.
    I work in psych and I love it. I got jabs from nursing school buddies about their jobs as a "real nurse" but I just blew those off. Why? Because most of them hate their jobs, are always looking...

  13. Am I Only one who is irritated by doctors and medical shows?
    It's a sad reality that the higher education you receive, the more removed you are from hands on patient care. I was thinking of this the other day when I realized I had been at the desk for much...

  14. What is psych nursing really like???
    I love psych nursing. I worked as an intern on a med/surg unit throughout nursing school and it was great getting experience with starting IV's, inserting foleys, etc., but med/surg is definitely not...

    I don't have any problems hearing, but I had a hard time finding a stethoscope that my ears could handle. My ears are really small and it would literally hurt to wear a stethoscope. I'm not a wimp,...

    I can relate to a night like that! Fortunately, those patients are not as common as one would think. Most of the time, I have time to sit and chat with some VERY interesting characters. The other...

  17. A note of deep concern and worry
    Good post. My best friend shot and killed himself when I was 16. I was 100% shocked and devastated as he never gave any signs that I noticed that he was considering such a thing, although looking...

  18. What do you love most about your floor/specialty?
    Psych here also and love every minute of it. It's weird because I used to think people who said things like, "Find a job you love and you'll never have to work a day" etc. were just full of total...

  20. LPN Volunteering at Senior Center- Need Advice
    I agree with what has already been said. I would think if you are not acting as a nurse though then you shouldn't be 'advertised' as a nurse either. By that I mean that I wouldn't wear a nametag that...

  21. Co-complainers. Is anything good enough?
    A HUGE part of the problem is that the tone was already set before I came. The "senior" CNA was friends with the other RN before I came. This RN knows she is lazy, and gets annoyed at times also, but...

  22. Co-complainers. Is anything good enough?
    I've actually made the comment (not to them) that I'd rather them not be there at all. The one who I work with the most often does so very little to "help" that I would rather her not even be there....

  23. Do you tattle on your co-workers when you find something missed?
    This seems to be the norm at my semi-new job as well. I could tell there was a "shift war" type environment when I started and there's a pretty crazy history between some of the employees. I've...
