    One of the docs at work copied it and posted it at our work stations. How great do you think it felt to walk in early on a Sat and see that the first thing!?
    We all decided we want to copy it and post it in each exam room and in triage, with certain sections highlighted.
    I also think it needs to be made public in Newsweek/Time/The Today Show or other similar forum. Sometimes I wish I had a mirror pinned to my scrubs so people could see how they're really acting.

    Just a thought, but with "ER Nurses Week" coming up (oct 8-14) how about everybody sending a copy of this editorial to their local newspaper??? the doc that wrote it said feel free to distribute......

    That should be required reading of all triaged "lobby dwellers" every time they come up to whine about their schedules and how they have "things to do"...

    Excellent article, thank you for sharing!

    I'm a tech in the ED, and i understand so much of this artical. I'm not an RN yet but will be in a year and a half. I'm planning on staying at my ED. I took this artical to work today and handed it to a good RN friend of mine, i told her read it, and pass around, so i hope everyone gets to see it!!

    I printed it out and posted it at work, a week later someone had reproduced it with lots of stars around it and put it in everyone's mail slot in the break room.

    One of our night ED Docs made a copy of this & posted it where we in the ED could see it. It really made our day & our director sent out a Congrats on ED Nurses week, with paraphrasing from that article. LOVED IT!!!
