    After reading some of these responses, I'm thanking my lucky stars that NO ONE is allowed into the OR!!! Family members have to stay behind in pre-op and be shown the way to the waiting area.

    When I first seen the title of this thread I thought it was about US babysitting our patients. At least at my work that is all I feel that I do.........babysit grown adults...who wont do anything for themselves.

    "Dont pull on that"...."Leave that alone."...."Stay in bed please."
    "If you pull that out..It will hurt." ....."No, you are not at home. You are in the hospital."......"No, I am not your wife and please dont call me a XXXXX."
