  1. What is the toughest part of nursing?

    Rudeness can be subjectively perceived. A tone of voice, wrong choice of words, anger at something or other or reluctance may seem disrespectful. Sometimes these things are misinterpreted and taken personal. I'm not talking about name calling or rude...
  2. Exactly what happened between the time of the incident, then your meeting with them, and the date you were "fired"? This is important. Everything go nicely, or did you have issues with patients or other nurses, staff? If you were doing well, it is h...
  3. The Working Poor-Nurses

    Not only nurses, also many teachers and part-time professionals in different walks of life can barely get by. This is a very old problem. In the Seventies I recall it well. Except now there are far more billionaires and the like. If one is frugal lik...
  4. AI in nursing

    I don't understand the actual difference between an advanced smart computer and A.I?-- A.I. is on/ over the news, but it is not so new. It was science fiction originally.
  5. What is this Imaging job title?

    I am trying to contact the outpatient diagnostic imaging xray dept support staff who handle appointments and insurance. Non-clinical. For research I want to know their job title and can't get info from the hospital or their website. Is there a standa...
  6. Took A Gummy Which May Or May Not Have Had THC

    I live in a state where marijuana is legal and gummies are popular. I think the OP knew it was marijuana with THC. It is unlikely to eat it by accident. It has a distinctive unsugary taste--I know from experience lots of times. How did the OP find t...
  7. Anyone else forced to get naked for supervised drug test?

    Is this a monitor of same gender? Males/males and females/females? If not-- it is weird and funky, maybe voyeuristic
  8. Med assistants are nurses?

    In my case, the medical assistant can assist in the procedure as the nurse would. It is easy and quick. But they should be upfront clear about titles, even if some patients don't care. Similarly, library assistants (who have no degree or ...
  9. How to cope with shame?

    I am shy talking about my deeper feelings also, mainly in front of strangers. Most people say they understand to be nice, but do not. So stay silent if you want to. People will remember what you say and you cannot take it back. Is there someone tha...
  10. Med assistants are nurses?

    So the secretaries at this specialty clinic call the medical assistants "nurses". Three times they told me about the "nurses" who are actually medical assistants. I am a patient there.Never in my life has this occured. Can I assume the doctor knows ...
  11. Patients Filming You

    Seems audacious to me for patients or visitors to film anyone. It is so easy and sly with phones. I know that some nurses film themselves...on the internet, with the names blurred. I wouldn't like it, at all. In some cases, can you confiscate th...
  12. Full Moon

    You cannot prove the Moon has this effect and you cannot absolutely prove it doesn't, but the latter most likely is true. What is more likely, the Moon drives humans screwy or these are legendary coincidences? The rule is that extraordinary...
  13. Somewhere a nurse is dating a patient's mother but probably not where you work. If the dating breaks off unhappily, you have more to lose and she probably has nothing to lose So this is iffy, at best. The safe cautious decision is no. The risky choi...
  14. Taking things too personally

    Some people are naturally very obsessive worriers and it is very hard to change when it is part of who you are. A therapist might help you manage these thoughts with a pill, but that doesn't cure this way of thinking. Thoughts of guilt or what if or...
  15. What to do if I like someone at work?

    This above...ought to be common sense.
