  1. A Plea to Nurses Everywhere

    To the OP, what have you chosen to do regarding the behaviors you have witnessed. Who have you reported the violence to? Have you documented what you've seen? Have you spoken with your Human Resources Department to have all staff throughout the or...
  2. Yes, I think I agree with Grandmawrinkle on this one to some extent. It just seems that this is one of those people you need to watch and document. He/she should certainly know what to do with a fax order etc. And also should be interested very in...
  3. Poor nurses

    hmmmmm, it's so hard to read this thread without 1) agreeing that we're not paid properly for what we do, and 2) cursing loudly enough to wake up my children and the neighbors (sigh).
  4. This one I did actually say, "I'm sorry, Who are you?! Visiting hours are over." "Oh, you're the replacement???!!!!! Well, it's nice to meet you." The other things I would honestly like to say, really shouldn't be put into print. Guess it doesn't m...
  5. One of the other members said the statement in another post. I'll try to recite it, but don't know if I can. It's from the Princess Bride????? or something. "Yes, I know you are intelligent, now SHUT UP!!!!!!"
  6. White Supremacist patients

    @vashtee: Just ask to be reassigned on days that you can't take the ignorance. You're human. We all are. This isn't about a witty comeback or anything else. There's nothing wrong with your motivations. Heck, I would have felt the same way as you...
  7. There are tons of companies needing dialysis nurses. Find one and move on. Take the lessons you've learned with you and go. This nurse is a bully and isn't to be trusted. I work with one of those also. I stay far away and try to make certain tha...
  8. Why are some nurses so rude to students?

    Yes, usually the students are ready for medications and assessments. There are some cranky, jacked up everything out there. Would you not agree? I really hate that some of the senior nurses chose to at you. I don't think that's fair or right. ...
  9. switching from nights to days - experiences?

    Do what you need to do. This is about your life and your health. And to be quite frank, it doesn't matter what your compadres think or do. If they give you harder assignments then so be it. Learn from the experience and treat them with kindness i...
  10. Why are some nurses so rude to students?

    Yes, I do understand what you are saying regarding adls etc. However, be aware that shifts in thinking must begin to take place within the brain once a student begins passing medications. My friends and I work with each student where they are and ...
  11. Why are some nurses so rude to students?

    Oiye, yes I see. Katy, I didn't communicate that thought clearly. I will try again. I am trying to word this correctly, so please continue to ask for clarification if you do not understand what I am trying to convey. I'm open and will try again i...
  12. Why are some nurses so rude to students?

    Oh goodness, there is not such thing as only a psw. Without you my day is pure hell. I appreciate all that you do. Thank you for everything though you may not work with me, you may work with my friend. Or you may be the person taking care of my f...
  13. Why are some nurses so rude to students?

    wow, gee fuzzywuzzy, you were less fuzzywuzzy than I was gentle. Perhaps, you are a bit more left brained with somethings and simply get down to the heart of the situation (kinda like me)? I'm not sure. but, I must say, it is nice to make your ...
  14. Why are some nurses so rude to students?

    Your statement is correct. However, you and I have 2 different priorities. Mine is to make sure the students understand the "whys" not just the "how tos". They will constantly be reminded of the ADLs once they are working. The ADLs will not have...
  15. Why are some nurses so rude to students?

    @ OP: I see this quite differently. I too work DOU. You aren't there to feed the patient, help the patient get to the bathroom or help the CNA!!! That statement isn't okay for me. You are there to learn. I'm going to explain to you why we are giving ...
