  1. ER nurses not calling report anymore...

    [QUOTE=FlyingScot;8181279]Believe me there's nothing an ED nurse likes to do more quickly than get rid of an admitted patient. We'd rather do full work up after full work up then have to mess...

    You're right, we really should just get rid of the emergency room altogether because the only nurses that know what they're doing work on the floor anyway. Us ER nurses are just useless!

  9. Men in the (nursing) field

  12. On having 2 titles: Nurse and Patient
    I don't know who the "she" is that you are referring to. The term elder can refer to one or a group of people who are older in age, of course. But it can also be applied to those in some churches...
