    So an ER attendant is basically a transport aid? We have those. I have had several problems with them. One of came to take a lady to PT and the woman had had an accident. So she comes to me(I was the student taking care of her)" You need to clean your pt...she **** all over the floor," So I cleaned her up and the woman was very embarrassed. So then I was getting some paperwork ready for her and the aid said, " You need to call housekeeping or something...it stinks in here, " At this , my pt started to cry. She was so ashamed. So I said, " That's not a priority right now, and by the way, my pt is not deaf," So she started swearing at me and telling me how she has been working with pts for years and yadda yadda yadda. So I said, " Well, if that's the case, then you should have a better idea of how to treat them," My instructor wrote ME up, when I was merely advocating for my pt. I would do it again, too.

    Last I heard, ER attendants did not have the right to diagnose. I agree with Vegas.

    It amazes me how people who have never been a nurse just assume we ***** and moan. Or that our job is easy. I think you did a good job I would have cursed his behind out. What a LOSER!!!!!!!

    well thanks for your supportive words, dont make me a saint just yet, although I was , and usually am quite calm and professional you better believe I was cursing this guy out in my head BIG TIME
    but I usually tend to approach things in a calm kind of manner , at least professional work related type stuff, I figured if I went apesh*t on him then he would just be able to use that as another example of our bad behaviour, so yeah I took the respectful route but boy It would have felt good to tear a strip off him! haha
    the U/A for emerg apologized to our U/A for the incident , and I saw him (was dropping off some paperwork for the union) the other day and he winked at me , gross!
