We have internet at out nurses station too, but are not allowed to be online for anything other than use of the hospitals internet site, human resources, calendar and such, and "nursing" related stuff...our hospital "subscribes" to micromedex and carenotes for info on drugs and patient ed resources... we are also "allowed" to research illnesses for out patients or ourselves.
I do find time occasionally to visit this site, as it IS for allNURSES... but I am careful about which posts I read for fear of fetting into trouble.
I find it silly that we cannot "surf the net" or play games, on breaks ofcourse. But hey, not such a big deal that I would blow a vessel over it.
Just out of curiosity, aside from deleting TIF files and cookies, and history, is there any way to "hide" the sites we visit? (not that we can access many sites because they are blocked) ( I often wonder if they are actually paying someone to snoop into where we have been online. Seems like that money could be better allocated)
