Then we wouldn't need nurses or doctors at all....leaving us free to cruise the Carribean. If there was a problem, the robots could just page us using ESP...lol

Oh heaven, to traverse the stars with "Tom Paris"...... Mmmmmmmm

Mario, I like your idea of the Robo-sitter...it could be suspended over the bed with a force field to prevent the patient from pulling out any lines, while leaving the patient unrestrained just with limited movements possible! The scanner ideas are great...to alert the staff of impending problems..."Warning" Warning" Code Brown in progress in 320-A" Hehehe
I like this thread!

I fantasize of enough time to really spend with your patient, listening to their stories and getting to know them.
An endless supply of pillows and blankets (without snatching from another unit).
More money. Christmas bonuses. Thanksgiving turkeys. Profit sharing. If nurses help reduce length of stay, give the nurse a bonus. Good outcome? Reward the nurse financially. It is done for physicians, why not nurses? We are the ones with the most impact on LOS and outcomes.

All suits would be required to do a minimum of 1 week per quarter of clinical time on various units and would get the heaviest assignments with the worst families.
All paperwork would be eliminated. We would dictate our notes the way the docs do. Wear a headset even and just talk as you do your assessment, patient teaching, etc.
Doctors, executives, etc. that treat nurses with respect.
100.00 per hour minimum.
All vacation tiem approved.
All supplies and equipment available and in working order.
Managers who remember where they came from and who actually give a damn.
Health benefits when I retire.
THE WINNING LOTTERY NUMBER!!!!! STAT!!!!!
