You are making so many assumptions, your credibility has been lost. You really have no idea, why these glasses are on her head. You talk about price, you talk about never seeing her wear them, you talk about her adjusting them, you doubt, they are needed. Why do you care so much? Why are you so focused on this nurses glasses? You have supervisors, unit managers, charge nurses who will speak to this nurse (and may already have and found an acceptable reason) if they thought it was unprofessional for her to wear. This is not your concern, and to bring in another party, is unprofessional, especially a CNA. Unless you see her commit abuse, leave her alone and focus on your own conduct.

I sound harsh, but part of what is making nursing unbearable, is the policing of all " well meaning" staff. The job is tough enough without having to watch your back, wondering who you work with "today" is going to question everything you do, say, or wear. We need to get back to minding ones own business and doing what we know we should do. Unbelievable, with all the many things that are happening and could happen, you are focused on this. Take my advice, try and be a better worker and co worker, you will find your shifts much easier to deal with. Peace!

hallelujah!

I think it is unprofessional. I worked as a secretary at a very relaxed, small office. I came in from my lunch break one time and had been working for about an hour when my boss saw me and promptly told me to remove the sunglasses.

There is no need for those glasses. If she wants her hair out of her face (which you mentioned it is policy) then there are other ways to do so. If she has a "bald spot" - too bad, get over it. Should you wear gloves 24/7 because you are missing a digit? No.

The sunglasses on the head would make me think that she is in a rush and not staying inside for long. Just my opinion.

Have you thought about asking why she wears?

As for the rest, are there not better issues to focus on?

i'm quite certain there are more compelling topics, but this is the one the title of the thread inquired about.

truthfully, it is at least more interesting than one more inquiry on mainboard that is dealing with student concerns and issues such as :

is moving out the country a solution to job finding difficulties

combined physiology/anatomy classes in los angeles area?

just graduated!! dilemma: i don't have hospital experience other than school clinical

I don't see how sunglasses would pose any more of a disease threat than regular eyeglasses perched on her skull.

If she is constantly adjusting them then the potential they may slip off is real - all I can think of is them slipping off her head at an inopportune time like emptying a bedpan or slipping off into a dressing change.

But to get back to the original point of the post, yes, i think it look unprofessional - it gives the impression that she is just dashing in to work for 20 minutes then off to her next task.
