  4. PT Pulls out their NG tube...boss says I need to fill out an event report?
    We would where I work. Anything that falls outside of "normal" requires an incident report. And I work in psych. Guess how many incident reports I write each week? :dead:

  6. Be nice to new nurses!
    Great story! I love new nurses. It's the old, "I've been doing it this way for 30 years so it has to be the right way" nurses that drive me nuts.

  9. Is your workplace haunted?

  10. Is your workplace haunted?
    Supposedly, but I've never seen any evidence. And for any resident ghosts at my facility, this is NOT an invitation to suddenly show yourself. I'm quite happy being kept in the paranormal dark....

  11. Wrote up a CNA, but I was the one who got the boot!

  20. Wrote up a CNA, but I was the one who got the boot!
