    In best British tradition, I cut and pasted this from elsewhere.

    Medicine's sins.

    "The seven sins are obscurity, cruelty, bad manners, over specialisation, love of the rare, stupidity and sloth"

    The seven sins of medicine. Richard Asher (1949)

    Some things don't change much!Any ideas for the 7 Sins of Nursing?

    This only applies to CERTAIN nurses - none of whom, by the way are on this board -


    There is one I know who tells everyone what to do and sits on her butt like a conductor - makes me so mad!

    Uh Oh Lois,I am beginning to feel guilty of that myself, I fear I am getting burned out.

    I really like martyrdom, so true!!! Unfortunately the laziness is so true too.

    How about Caring too much??
