Quote from butterflynurse03
Personal gifts to a single nurse are not a good thing. If a patient wishes to give a gift, the best thing is a card and or something for ALL of the nursing staff on the floor. This way they are not singling out one specific nurse. Also, verbal thanks from the patient to the nurse are always nice.
I disagree. What if this patient had bad experiences with some of the other staff? Why should they be rewarded? Also, this isn't junior high anymore. If my feelings get hurt because my co-worker received a bookmark, cookie or what have you, I really need more to do. My bil is in his early thirties and my mil has to buy him and my dh the same number of presents @ Christmas b/c he still counts and will get upset if my dh gets one more than him.
If someone is going to be like that, it's time to grow up.
