How is possible? I'm sure patients are getting ignored. At two different places I've worked, nurses, aides, and respiratory therapists had earpieces in their ear or headphones on and were talking on their cell phones while handing out medication. It was their own personal cells and they were having full fledged conversations. Others were listening to music( and I know because I could hear it) about three had no earpiece in but were playing the music loudly on their cellphones while walking down the hall and on duty. I know it isn't for emergencies either. I could understand if it was for that. I've witnessed a nurse who was on her cell talking the whole time during med pass. I want to go as far to say this is unprofessional. Is this normal where you guys work?
