  1. Narc count
    Yes and no it's a problem. The problem for the incoming nurse is if she signed it was correct and it later on proved not to be, it's on her. OTOH, if the count later on was incorrect, there will be...

  2. Narc count
    If the incoming 3-11 nurse signed the count without actually counting and the count is off, it's on her because she's signed her name coming on. If you're signing the count with another 7-3 nurse...

  3. Hired on days, manager request to switch to night
    "Paltry pay" is relative when compared with the cost of living/personal debt etc... as I've already said. If your paycheck allows you to pay your bills/save for your future and have some fun then...

  4. Is the nursing profession really for me???
    "Is the nursing profession really for me???" No, it's not, IMO. How do I know? I read your OP. Only you can help you and the only way you can do that is knowing yourself. Do strangers on a...

  5. Hired on days, manager request to switch to night
    What's pathetic about $1350/2 weeks? There are BILLIONS of unemployed "peeps" who would love to get that and health insurance (nurses or not and of course most aren't). We all want to make more...

  6. How did you get out of getting the Flu shot?
    One facility I worked at required/mandated that if you didn't provide proof of a current flu shot or get one the facility would provide, you had to wear a mask during patient cares. Shot or mask,...

  7. Fired for the second time... by THE SAME DON.
    I've come to realize that there is often little difference between LTC and acute care, especially if they're skilled. OP, there's no way I can offer an objective opinion on whether or not you should...

  8. My major mistake This thread is about a mistake i made nearly a year ago.
    Nurses who make med errors are EVERY SINGLE NURSE WHO'S EVER WORKED AS A NURSE ON THE FLOOR. Or they're lying. Nurses who don't give a crap about their med error, even long after, are the nurses who...

  9. No Visitors
    If my patient has specified "these couple of people" and someone not on the list, even the mother, wanted to visit, I wouldn't double check with my patient. Why would I? My patient has already made...

  11. Stay at home mom wanting to go to nursing school
    Want it? DO IT. 2 yrs vs 4? That's a no-brainer to me, git er done in 2. A little more stress than 4 years but the pay-off is worth it. In my personal experience, the more I had on my plate...

  13. Lightweight or Classic II?
    No experience with the lightweight. I have the classic II and highly recommend it for general nursing assessments. Whatever scope you get, keep it around your neck/in your pocket when not in use. ...

  14. Poop Free Nursing Jobs in the Hospital?
    Again, this response makes zero sense to me. Do you mean if you had a "drinking habit" it would explain why I don't understand/agree with you? You don't need a "sensible excuse" for not making...

  20. Poop Free Nursing Jobs in the Hospital?
