I dont tell anyone about it. I am guessing you make money on this website, so instead of bragging you should be planning maintaining and improving your site

lame:down:

This site is great because it's a place for real, front-line nurses to communicate. It's not a series of corporate puff-pieces like "7 reasons why employers can be choosier these days" and "Should nurses be allowed to organize and strike?" :hlk:

I can't stand articles like that. The one talking about strikes might not be too bad, but those that contain words are like the first one are yeeeeesh-shudder- get away! :) The other day someone was scoffing at this site, saying they go to sources of unbiased information like the (name bogus survey) from the (name group with huge stake in the results) I think allnurses is the best way to get a feel for what's really going on at the grassroots, and I don't understand why anyone writing the dumb articles wouldn't use a site like this as part of their research for it. After they write their article about the nursing shortage they'll be finding out in a hurry, and it won't be pretty.

I just found this site an hour ago and I think it's has a TON of potential....It's about time someone came up with something for the people who are the nuts and bolts of the medical profession. :cool:

Glad you found it an hour ago but many of us have been here for years. It's not something new someone just came up with. Welcome to our club.

LOL! That's what I was thinking. I don't have a bit of a problem getting rid of any number of pens. LOL I have a problem keeping my pen.

Yes. I go to work with 200 pens on me at 3pm. At 11:30 when I'm signing out I have to borrow a pen.

I actually had this happen to me about 9 yrs ago. Told my then coworker about this place...she took some info I had posted where I requested advice on how to handle a difficult family member..printed that off...gave it to the ADON at the hospital where I worked and I got a 3 day suspension. Because the ADON said she knew who I was referring to by this post....of course you do! The family member is in your office EVERY DAY complaining about this person and that person! It's a small town and a small hospital!! But if you gave that info to Brian, our founder, he would have NO CLUE who I was talking about!!!!

Even though I NEVER called the pt in question by name...this was BEFORE HIPAA went into effect, I was still suspended for violating patient confidentiality!!

So be careful what you put out there and who you tell because it COULD come back and bite you!!! I know, it happened to ME!

I am sorry this happened to you. The was a really crappy thing your co-worker did.........what a creep! BUt a valuable lesson learned.......don't give anyone your code name. I also think the DON was not quite right about a breech in confidentiality. You asked about how to deal with a family member of patient X not how to deal with patient X. Confidentiality pertains to the patient not the family member.

I also realize you can't fight city hall........ :(

I believe that HIPPA refers to information about the patient, not the relatives. Yor coworker was a "dufus" to have called attention to your post. How dastardly!

The ADON's reaction was way too severe! It would have been far better for him/her to have given you what you needed: guidance about how to respond to relatives' needs for attention and a willing ear.....
