    Depends anyone? Can I interest you in a fecal incontinent bag? How about a 16,18,20,22,24,26,28,30 foley???? Drainage or leg bag?

    Hey I have threatened my aides that if they don't manage things for 5 minutes so I can go pee, I would make them change me when I'm incontinent and I'm a combative resident!!

    I have also thought about trying to cath myself so this whole thing would be solved! LOL :roll

    In the past, employees were permitted to make trips to the restroom under informal guidelines. Effective immediately, a Restroom Trip Policy will be established to provide a more consistent method of accounting for each employee's restroom time and ensuring equal treatment of all employees.

    Under the policy a "Restroom Trip Bank" will be established for each employee. The first day of each month, employees will be given twenty Restroom Trip Credits. These credits may be accumulated.

    Within four to six weeks, the entrance doors to all restrooms are being equipped with personal identification stations and computer- linked voice print recognition devices. Before the end of the month each employee must provide two copies of voice prints (one normal and one under stress) to the Human Resources Department. The voice print recognition station will be operational but not restrictive during the entire month. Employees should acquaint themselves with the stations during that period.

    If the employee's Restroom Trip Bank balance reaches zero, the doors to the restrooms will not unlock for that employee's voice until the first of the next month. In addition, all restroom stalls are being equipped with timed paper roll retractors. If the stall is occupied for more than three minutes, an alarm will sound. Thirty-seconds after the alarm sounds, the roll of paper will retract into the wall, the toilet will flush, and the stall door will open. If the stall remains occupied, your picture will be taken.

    The picture will then be posted on the bulletin board located in the Employee Relations Office. Anyone's picture showing up three times will immediately be terminated. If you have any questions about this policy, please ask your supervisor. They have all received advanced instructions.
    This is a joke right? Because if it isn't, it is a violation of human rights to empty the bladder and bowel that operates on the autonomous nervous system, and can only be "held in" for so long. I can see lawsuits increasing with this one if it is true!

    I'm sure there's a suit somewhere consulting one of thier lawyer golf buddies right now on how to implement this without recourse.

    Big Brother is watching!

    I think the suits would do it, I really do but I think they would get a creepy bathroom attendant instead of a camera.

    I have always found the most exciting reading in the unit bathroom. All the memos and party planning goes on the sacred bathroom door. I did not know you could actually empty your bladder and (god forbid---there is a special one for this down the hall) bowel during work hours. I always thought that the management placed the bathrooms there to keep us informed.

    You can tell I'm a newbie because I still pee at least twice a shift!

    A few weeks ago I had a bladder infection at work...I would have used my entire month's potty time in that one shift! I didn't tell anyone what my problem was; they probably thought I'd just had some bad Chinese food!

    You will learn to have a nurses bladder.

    I can go for a solid 12-13 hours with no bathroom break.
