  2. Calling a transgender patient an "it"
    The OP spoke of actual, witnessed wrongdoing, that resulted in a psychological crisis for the patient, not "alleged" wrongdoing. We are not talking about unsubstantiated wrongdoing.

  4. I made a big mistake
    I am thinking the same as you. Older adults can be very sensitive to the side effects/potential toxicity of some medications, particularly if they are very sick, and/or have other significant...

  6. Can we just agree, being honest is not akin to being "rude"?
    Rudeness, meanness, and insensitivity are more than just a purely subjective phenomenon, as you are appearing to portray. I think Gooselady expressed this well in her post. Rudeness is uncivil,...

  7. Can we just agree, being honest is not akin to being "rude"?
    In the process of speaking one's truth, i.e. being "honest", one can also be rude. A number of posters on this thread have referred to reading posts which they considered to be brutally honest,...

  9. Nurses as Costs for Hospitals

  10. So sick of this Nurses eat the young crap.
    It is good form to quote the person you are replying to. One can pass the NCLEX and not be able to practice safely as a beginning nurse. The examples given by the OP of new nurses who were not...

  11. So sick of this Nurses eat the young crap.

  12. Nurses: You’ve Been LIED to about your Back and Body Mechanics
    A number of posters have objected to the OP's statement that nurses have been lied to about their backs and body mechanics. Out of curiosity, I looked up the discussion of body mechanics in an old...

  13. Family member hurt my somewhat fragile new grad confidence

  16. Family member hurt my somewhat fragile new grad confidence
    I am just suggesting more possibilities here, but it sounds to me that it is quite possible that your patient's wife could be trained as a nurse and be intentionally downplaying her knowledge so as...

  17. Family member hurt my somewhat fragile new grad confidence
    If you thought this as you were taking care of your patient and explaining the care you were giving to your patient's wife, it is possible that the patient's wife picked up on your thoughts/body...

  22. People really need to stop coming into nursing
