  1. How do you handle rude comments?

    . I think most nurses with any common sense would discuss things like this at an appropriate time. Especially when the other nurse is asking me how my sister is!!
  2. How do you handle rude comments?

    Wow!! Where the h*** do you work??? In all my jobs as a nurse for the last almost 30 years we have all discussed issues about serious family illnesses or major life stressors. When it was an appropriate time. You sound like an angry nurse manager of ...
  3. How do you handle rude comments?

    Thank you. I find no excuse for the comments these people made to me. I did speak to my friend abut it. Just no excuse. If tou dont have anything nice to say...dont say anything!
  4. How do you handle rude comments?

    Exactly. My sister keeps pointing out how her friends and even our cousin can be on facebook constantly, but can't send her one text asking how she is. She doesn't expect people to even call or come over...but one little text would be nice. Even my c...

    That's just absolutely horrible. People are so self-centered.
  6. How do you handle rude comments?

    Thanks for the laugh. Wish I was that witty when the comments are first said. I discussed the comments with my friend, she knows I am upset.

    Thank you for sharing your story. How painful! I agree with you....to let it go for my own sanity.
  8. How do you handle rude comments?

    Thank you everyone for the kind responses. What hurts a lot is my friend totally forgot my mom has stomach cancer now. I now know my so-called close friend isn't very close. she is dealing with her own family drama so I have to remember not to expect...
  9. How do you handle rude comments?

    That's all I need from people. "I'm sorry, or that must be hard." I'm here if you need me.
  10. How do you handle rude comments?

    Thanks. I can see now what you mean by my friend maybe thinking to herself " that won't happen to me" because she eats very little sugar. I just wish people would say nothing if they can't say anything supportive. My friend tends to be holistic. she ...
  11. How do you handle rude comments?

    Long story short, my sister and my mom both have cancer right now. My mom had breast cancer, which is now in her stomach. My sister has breast cancer and she just had a double mastectomy. I have been under a lot of stress, needless to say. So, when ...
  12. New to triage and feeling incompetent!

    Almost 200 people read the post, and no replies? Why doesn't anyone talk here? Are we afraid of being discovered or something? It would be nice to provide some help.
  13. New to triage and feeling incompetent!

    I sent you a PM
  14. Staff Nurses Who Refuse To Precept Or Teach?

    As a nurse, after so many years of being a nurse (27 1/2) I really don't want to have the added stress of helping a new nurse. I've done it enough over the years and it's not required, so nurses who want to do it should, those of us who don't, should...
  15. Three babies can be very challenging. Can you ask them for two baby assignments so you can get more organized before you care for 3? I agree with other responses. Put the parents to work. But then that can become hard because they sometimes need a lo...
