  1. Reporting another nurse
    When the count's screwed up, everyone plays 'Not It'. If I'm the relief, I will sell you down the river to save my butt (and license). Exactly how many people did you tell, OP? Are they...

  2. Idea's for weekend work for lpn?
    Everywhere but admin and the hospital. Doubles in LTC/SNF are hard to fill but ppl generally stay rooted. Thats why pulling PRN on weekends may not be feasible. HH has flexible shift work.

  3. What's the meanest thing a patient has said to you?
    I honestly don't know. Nothing sticks, though. I worked psych. Psych pt's have the honesty of children, so after routinely getting my soul ripped out in 10 words or less, nothing bothers me now....

  4. Well, Isn't This Special
    "...make sure the nurses are doing their job". This quote gets under my skin for too many reasons to discuss. The creator of this app gets the bird for that string of words alone. They should...

  5. Well, Isn't This Special
    Good. No one has time for unmportant phone calls. These family members are annoying enough without any apps. Two scenarios: Sometimes, the clerk tells the entire area to pick up instead of...

  7. JOBS in Florida
    First, a little complaining: Nursing in Fl sucks. This state attempts to lowball nurses and I didnt go to school to be a med aide. It's completely inefficient. I dont care anything about...

  8. Luxury Scrub
    ??? Psych nurses get bodily fluids (and food) on us as much as anyone else. Anyway, if anyone wants to create a high-end scrub line, do so. With care. Pretty sure that someone said that no one...

  9. Valedictorian caught cheating
    Yep. She and others should meet up at a restaurant on grad/pin night and have fun. That's a better way to get your point across than the whole class showing it's a-- in protest. Ha Ha In light...

  12. Is this appropriate behaviour when placing a condom catheter?
    You don't have to get anything erect to put a condom cath on. Even if it is small and flaccid. You've just got to have deft fingers: 1. Grap it, pull it up and grip it. 2. Pull the skin down...

  13. Leadership question
    LVN/PNs are 'charge' nurses. (RNs are 'supervisors'.) -- You've got to know how to manage or effectively lead the CNAs. Dont be a pushover but dont be a *****, either. Be fair. There will be...

  14. "What to Expect When You're a Patient"
    I agree. Now, I don't work in an ICU but if other coworkers give me a heads up about a 'problem visitor', it always works in my favor when I approach them, opening the door to answer/rectify...

  15. Is it a good idea to get an EMT while doing pre-reqs for nursing?
    I was an aide but I should have obtained my EMT. It was more in line with what I want to do.

  16. "I don't want to die"
    I have nothing to add but don't feel alone. That would kind of freak me out a bit, too. Mine were either 'going down' or were found unconscious. Never dealt with a pt who was alert and actively...

  17. What is the freaking deal with OB?
    I have no idea. I wasn't picky but I developed the impression that I should be doing critical care to fast-track my career. I couldn't handle OB, though. When I did rotation, we had babies...

  18. How do you store your stethoscope?
    Uh...my nurse bag? I put them in there when I leave and don't look at them again until I go back to work. One is a master cardiology Littman; the other is the electronic stethoscope. I babied...

  20. Why do some nurses come across to be rude?
    Intimidated by the nurse in what way? I'm rarely rude, even to family members. Just...abrupt because I'm generally very busy at work and I don't even work in a hospital. Just rehab. Yet, I...

  22. How to deal with an aggressive dementia patient
    I don't see how you'd be doing this alone. You're not in that facility all by yourself. When the facility alarms go off, everyone (CNA, Nurse, Housekeeping, Maintenance, etc...)should be making a...

  23. Calling all NYC Tristate LPN's
    Wow. You'd do very well with even an $18-23/hr job in much of the south. I mean, Texas does the med aide thing so it's not like you'd have to work in a facility popping meds for 30-40 if you...

  25. Did I fail the NCLEX 265
    It's possible that you still passed. NCLEX does that. Some testers are just given every question. I used to work with a girl who passed but rec'vd the 'entire' test, too. When she walked out of...
