Did y'all get this PM from inna?
Hi! I'd like to make a suggestion in one of the threads in the General Nursing Discussion Board entitled....FOREIGN NURSES FROM THE PHILIPPINES ... Maybe this thread is more appropriate to be posted in NURSES FROM OTHER LOCATIONS? It's just that people posting here are using their own language. Well, I have nothing against it, but it's just pretty awkward. It's like we are all talking and having discussions face to face and somebody will just speak a non-english language making the rest of us clueless and wonder what are they talking about. It seems that they're enjoying their discussions but sorry...It's kind'a rude and impolite to be viewed in the General Nursing Discussion Board.
I will understand if it's in the NURSES FROM OTHER LOCATIONS I would expect seeing a different language from here.... but in the General Discussion Board?.... It's like not having the good manners and right conduct for the people posting it in a non-english language. I just don't want to offend them but I really, really want to post this letter on that said thread. Thanks

How did you get to be so lucky Jane to find live in help that speaks Tagalong, LOL.
Tuesday Drs office called to speak with our physician liason---actually they wanted to give an homecare referral so got transfered by liason to myself. Was told the patient had "communication issues" so might need to set up appoinment thru son.
Few hours later, spouse calls insisting on speaking with liason... get the call transfered to me. "Communication issue" was that patient and spouse primarily speak French! Spouse starts rapidly babbling in mixture of French and English.
I slow him down by recalling my 30yr old HS French. My staff was practically rolling on the floor hearing me call myself "Madame Caron" and badly speaking French.
Certainly pays to know another language!
