  1. How do you handle inappropriate touching from patients?
    What irritates me is, if this guy tried to grab visitors' body parts, he'd be out on the street. If he groped the female residents, he'd be out on the street. Employees on the other hand, are...

  2. What do YOU do with your old scrubs?
    When they're too faded to wear to work, they are decommissioned. They then begin their new lives as all purpose at home clothes. I use them for PJs, then just roll out of bed ready for the day.

  3. All Men Shift
    I work with several male nurses, but "Joe" has come to mind as I continue to read these posts. He's funny and fun loving. Sometimes he makes blatant sexist comments just to get a rise out the...

  4. Being Asked to Come in and Work as CNA...
    Nobody calls and asks us to cover an extra shift. They just wait until we get to work, check the assignments, and see the note that one of us has to be the CNA. When that happens, we fight over who...

  5. So Frustrated I Could Cry..
    If there is a day I need off, that's so important to me I'd risk my job, nobody at work knows about it. I don't ask to swap, or request that day from my boss. That way if I absolutely have to, I can...

  6. blackballed
    I don't have one single extra constructive thing to add. Just some insight from somebody who's been there done that. I never worked in an ER, but I did quit an organization I'd been with for...

  7. All Men Shift
    What's described in the OP sounds more like personality issues, instead of gender issues. I recognize there are definite pros and cons with working with one gender over the other, but I haven't...

  8. Nurse cutbacks linked to death rates
    "What's it going to take?" Money. When malpractice lawsuits, cost more than hiring more nurses. Wouldn't it be great if nurses could sue their employer for emotional distress? Before anybody...

  9. Can a patient video tape me?
    I have an "Icky" barometer. If something a patient does, or asks me to do, sets off my "Icky" alarm, I won't do it. The rules are the rules, I know them and will enforce them. There are some...

  10. No Good Deed Goes Unpunished
    I thought OCNRN63's post was tongue in cheek. I even thought it was funny. Was she serious? Sometimes I'm clueless. There have been times when that quality has come in handy on AN.

  11. Do we need a union? Management is taking advantage of us.
    If a union came to my facility, I would vote yes.

  12. Cardiac Unit as a New Grad
    Your first clue of problems should have been a job offer for a new grad on day shift. The warning bells should have been going off. The wait for day shift on the unit where I work is almost a year....

  13. HR's mistake hurt my paycheck
    She did renew on time. You're right. I think payment for the 6 hrs she worked would be sufficient. Pushing for those hrs unworked is an overreach. I would definitely be looking at repurcussions,...

  14. Keep my cell phone......or landline
    I'm old fashioned that way too. I really think bosses texting their employees is unprofessional. I don't text. My phone doesn't have that option. My boss calls my phone. Usually both cell and...

  16. HR's mistake hurt my paycheck
    I'd like to know how the OP worked for 6 hrs unable to access her patient's charts? If she paid/renewed her license on the 30th, a Friday at the last minute, and HR left early on that Friday, it's...

  17. Is Anyone afraid to leave bedside nursing?
    As the above poster said, it's the devil you know vs the one you don't. I know med/surg. It's the only thing I've done in a hospital. I'm afraid it I go to another department I'll be even more...

  19. It's Already Gone On Long Enough
    I used to think if nurses could speak plainly to families about end of life care, they'd make more informed decisions. If we could, with compassion, point out the futility of G tube feedings, when...

  20. Nursing and the Ebola Virus
    So the hazmat suite worn by the ambulance AND the patient were simply for public consumption? The CDC, WHO, our government, the Graham organization, were simply pandering to our worst fears? Just...

    I have them too. Just like everybody else. Just another hazard of the job I hadn't considered.

  24. Before you judge the addicted nurse.....
    I too will bow out. I was not aware there were parts of AN that were meant solely for nurses who agree with each other. My apologies.

  25. Nursing and the Ebola Virus
    If I were at my hospital when Ebola was diagnosed for the first time, I'd probably stay and not go home. Not because it's easily transmitted. Not because I'd automatically be infected. Not...
