  1. Someone has to stay!!!!!
    Have to agree, this happens many times where I work. Refuse to be guilted anymore, because after 12-14+ hours with one or two five minute breaks, I can't do anymore without being a danger to my...

  2. sneaking meds in food
    Hmm, are you sneaking the morphine to chemically restrain the patient? If so, not a very good idea. As the previous poster states..."it's a fine line..."

  3. Night shift, CNAs and homework
    If I remember right, the OP asked for opinions. No one questioned your abilty as a CNA, but for some reason, you feel a great need to justify why you did homework while you were on company time and...

    Thank you for this comment. Beginning to feel like a B and perhaps a minority here, which I did not wish to portray. I am proud to be the latter. Thanks, Patti

    Not on my unit, it is always crazy and there are no nights when not much needs to be done. I want your job! Getting homework done is a null issue. However, most nurses on our unit try to help and...

  7. Night shift, CNAs and homework
    To be honest, this post makes me livid. At the hospital where I work, night shift is just as busy as day shift and were are given less nursing assistants than day shift. In addition, many of our...

  9. "Nurses are so Mean"
    Furthermore, who or what are you? No specialty, no years of experience. If you are not a nurse, why are you here?

  10. "Nurses are so Mean"
    Lol, have you ever worked in a hospital? Does not always work this way. For example, ER calling to give me report on a patient (new admit) , when I haven't even gotten report on the other four...

    Unfortunately, "mean" people and bullies exist everywhere and will; therefore, be found in every profession. And...nurses are definitely not saints, just ordinary human beings. There are some...

  13. Hospital frequent flyers??? Whatever happened to it being an acute care facility!
    LOL, nursing is a respected profession? Gallup can kiss my A$$, because I sure don't see any respect.

  14. What reason is used for call offs!
    This is pretty bizarre, but notable as an ultimate call-off. An employee where I worked at years ago called off, because her husband had been murdered. She stated that she would be back to work in...

  15. Is Nursing really THAT bad???
    Yes it is. Why? For me it concerns the fact that nurses are the ultimate scapegoats. We are blamed when everyone else fails to do their job...from doctors, to nursing assistants, to housekeeping,...

  16. Sitting down to calm an upset patient is unprofessional?
    I think it is some weird phenomenom or some old, yet not identified race. I do see the common heriditary trait of the brown nose.

    So on top of being every imaginable scape goat are nurses now responsible to be prison guards also? What about the guard who was suppossed to "guard" this patient? And, if this person was such a...

  21. IV med dosing question
    Technically, I would say yes. But then again, aren't you practicing outside of your scope? You are saying that you would start the patient on 1 mg and give another if necessary. That is prescribing...

  22. $450 scrub top... yeah, I know, for real.

  24. IV med dosing question
    Have had similar discussions with other nurses regarding such orders. Don't think that this is within the parameters for dosing. The order clearly states 1 mg q4 or 2 mg q4, not give 1 mg q2 and you...

    Yes, but I guess I left out the fact that the patient condoned this, because after we asked the family to leave twice, the patient stated she wanted them to stay. My interpersonal dynamics with the...
