Feb 18, '04Quote from NursingStudyPerhaps you should "accidently" spill bleach on the uniforms before returning them!
BWAAAAAAAAHHH!!! I don't know why, but for some reason this just struck me as hilarious at the time I read it!
Feb 19, '04Quote from azgirlI'm ready to be tied. We got a letter from our CNO stating they are reinstating the white nursing uniforms. We don't get a choice in the matter. Nevermind every single white uniform I have looks more like it belonged to a dalmation. (Activated charcoal does wonders when a patient sprays you with it!)When I started at my facility I was forced to buy their uniforms even though I had my own that color that I liked better. I was told that the uniforms were a benefit because they were sold to us for $26. Later I transferred to another unit that wore another color so there went another $26. Now a year and a half later they said that whoops they made a mistake. Those uniforms are only leased to us for $26 a year and that we must turn in the old ones and purchase as a lease another $26 uniform set or be charged $52 if we leave without returning the uniforms.
Now I bought mine and sure don't appreciate having to return them. Has anyone else had this problem? Any suggestions of what to do or who to go to? Is there a governing agency over nursing homes?
The part that really irritates me is we are supposedly a shared governance hospital. Why is this being dictated? No one will answer my questions. You would think they could just present their evidence, and let us make our own decision.
