  2. Confront or do a slow burn!
    Why can't a person lay down on an unpaid break if the patients are covered? Our doctors used to use OUR breakroom for naps all the time, forcing us to be quiet and eat in the dark. I understood their...

  3. I Lost All Respect For A Colleague Today
    Their sharing a chair is disgusting behavior, and unprofessional for sure. Again, I say, I would mind my own business. I would walk out, if need be.

  5. I Lost All Respect For A Colleague Today
    Once a long, long time ago, one of my techs was having a blatant and indiscreet affair with our senior/medical director MD. It was obvious, flagrant and annoying. I STILL minded my own business. It...

  6. I Lost All Respect For A Colleague Today
    AGAIN, the OP needs to MYOB. She TITLED the thread, "I lost all respect for my colleague", and that denotes a strong connotation of lop-sided blame. Maybe change the title then. And yes, she should...

  7. I Lost All Respect For A Colleague Today
    Interesting you lose "all respect for your colleague" but less disdain expressed for the OTHER half of this affair. So it always goes. The "other woman" is to blame, particularly if she is a nurse....

  8. When a Mom Miscarries
    The subject of guilt is very valid and not lost on me. My first child, a boy, came early at 34 weeks' gestation. My water broke at 33 weeks and he was in there a week before I went into labor. I...

  9. When a Mom Miscarries
    Been there several times. I am so sorry for your loss. ANOTHER thing: DO NOT TREAT MY LOST PREGNANCY AS BIO HAZARD WASTE without at least letting me see and grieve. It may be a bio hazard piece of...

  10. Nurses don't do anything
    Whatever they say, why do you care? Really, it' s none of our business what others say or think about us. That "they" say we "don't do anything" is a great sign of ignorance on their part, not yours....

  11. Remaining cordial with coworkers you dislike
    I do it by remembering it's not all about me, and they things they do or say that may upset me, are not mine to own. I reboot my brain when feeling super negative about such people. It takes...

  12. painful reports
    Not necessary! Really, no need to belittle others in a discussion. PARTICULARLY if you ARE a "professional". Then, act like one.

  13. Should male nurses put the toilet seat down?
    I was brought up that gentlemen put it down and brought my son up this way. This has nothing to do with gender equality, but good manners and thoughtfulness.

  15. Would you want your child to become a Nurse???
    My daughter considered getting her BSN (she is a sophomore in HS right now), but her long term goal is cardio-thoracic surgery. SO I told her a BSN would probably not be the best route unless she...

  16. Study: Doctors don't wash hands properly 40% of the time
    Had a doctor who wore fancy ties. Well, in OB, you need NOT have that tie on when you are all in their "business" checking their cervix. HONESTLY his tie was dipping in her amniotic fluid on the bed...

  17. What Docs Don't Understand About Nurses
    I have seen many "A-student-look-good-on-paper" nurses graduate and go on to be lousy nurses. Oftentimes, programs choose people based on how they look on paper; fine, but to let these people who are...

  21. Dialysis nursing compatible with breastfeeding/pumping?
    I cannot see why you would not be able to pump. Different clinics have different hours. Mine, for example, are 10 hour days. I get a 30 minute break in the morning and 15 min in afternoon. When I was...
