  1. Error and Attitude

    I am sorry that you have had to deal, not only with the stress of learning a new job, but with an unsupportive and critical staff as well. Several years ago, I had an experience with a nurse, who, although we worked opposite days, began to say hatefu...
  2. Hands of Love

    They couldn't safely give care to everyone who needed it because there was one particular lady who was very confused and had an exceptional case of restlessness that evening. She would try to wander continually except for brief 3-5 minute periods whe...

  4. How do you ace-wrap shoulders?

    Does anyone know of a site that diagrams how to apply ace wraps to shoulders? I have painful tendinosis in both shoulders. Applying compression via ace wraps is recommended for tendinosis in general, and works well for further down the extremities......
  5. Please help me help this person...

    I am taking care of a quad... can move his chin up and down, and speak softly only. He can still feel things, but has no motor ability. It is so hard for him... he was very active before his disease struck. I would like to try to find some informati...
  6. Cell phones and confidentiality

    its scary to think of our personal info being transmitted through the phone waves. cordless phones do this, too. one day i over heard my neighbor's phone call through my baby monitor! and i had a friend who was talking about something that a neighbor...
  7. Let's play I Remember When.....

    I graduated in 1982... back then, we used to use an air-tube system (like they use in the drive through windows at banks) to send our orders to the pharmacy- no fax machines, no computer. Remember the multiple cubby holes above the nursing station- e...
  8. Would you or wouldn't you?

    Well, thanks everyone for your input. Here's what I did. Just before I left for work, I called my neighbor. She wasn't home but gramma was. I told her that I was sorry, but for legal reasons I limit myself to only life threatening emergencies as far ...
  9. Would you or wouldn't you?

    This may seem like a petty issue, but.... My neighbor just called while I was napping.. so I will be calling her back. Her grandma is in from another state and needs her B-12 shot. They want to know if I will come over and give it. I do not feel comf...
  10. Croc shoes Worth it? Or forget it??

    I wear an 11-12 shoe... depending on the brand. Do crocs tend to run a little big (or a little small) for their sizes- does anyone know? Thanks- White Shoes
  11. Nursing survival gifts...

    Last night at work we were so busy that I had to wait 4 hours from the time I needed to empty my bladder to when I could actually have a moment to do it! Anyway, I was mentioned my prediciment one of the nurses and she jokingly said we nurses should ...
  12. Cussing Co-Workers

    I started a new job last year. One nurse I worked with swore all of the time when she talked to the other nurses. Not in anger, just in her regular conversation. One day someone told her I was a pastor's wife. She asked me if I wanted her to stop sw...
  13. correctional nurse?????

    Hi. My husband used to be a corrections officer for a medium security prison. I considered applying for a nursing position there... until one night they had a riot, burnt down 3 buildings and took hostages- which fortunately, some other brave inmates...
  14. Pet Peeves in Nursing...

    What are your pet peeves in nursing? I'll start: I absolutely hate it when a patient is in full isolation... gown, gloves, masks.. the works and when you try to remind the visitor that these items are needed in order to enter the room, they say, "But...
  15. How much did you start as a nurse and when.

    7.82/ hr in 1982 as an RN in a major teaching hospital. 23.00/ hr week days and 34.50 an hour weekends now as an RN at a retirement community. I think it would be higher now, but I took the last 8 years off, so I had to start at base pay. White Shoes
