    Interpersonal skills during a code

    Is this an essay question?

    Just curious how other systems work.

    Once. They catch it if you don't scan the med. I've had to go in on my day off and take a drug test because I forgot to scan the med.

    10 Things to NEVER Say to a Nurse

    I said the same exact thing to a patient a few years ago. And he said he would hire somebody to wipe his but. Lol

    Is it okay for RN to ask recovery patients not to swear?

    I dropped dozens of f bombs when I was coming out of anesthesia. It didn't even cross my mind that I might have been offending someone because I hurt like crazy. I don't normally use foul language but I'll probably do it again if I'm faced with the same situation.

    Are nurses generally more attractive

    Yup. I got a hell of a lot of dates. I don't think it's because of my career but more of the fact that I make decent money and am independent.

    Advice needed!! Waiting on drug screen and its been 7 days!!

    Tpapn usually gives a second chance. Unless you've used up your second chance, I wouldn't give up on it.

    Is this a good place to work??

    Isn't it the ultimate responsibility of the nurses to make sure the residents are being taken care of? Do the best you can and the rest should fall on the nurses. Either they can straighten out the lazy coworkers or be held responsible for their non action. Am I right?

    IS TPAPN for Everybody?

    Tpapn won't drop you for one missed call in. Definitely find some legal help.

    Nurses smoking weed?

    What? Your "rabbit"?

    HELP!!!!!TPAPN referral and I'm not sure why?!

    Doesn't make any sense. If there is nothing more to this, then you're fine. Don't worry too much about it.

    Nurses who can't find jobs- vent..

    I live in Texas and I just can't imagine not getting hired after 300 apps.

    What is your Nursing Kryptonite?

    I don't know if anyone else has said this on this thread, but my gross out is cleaning a poopy patient and having to dig in the vagina to get it all out. yuck

    Methadone and NAS- from a mom's perspective

    I don't understand why ANYONE would need methadone for 9 years. Someone please explain. Thanks.

    Is tipping allowed?

    Tipping of nurses is allowed in Mexico. I had weight loss surgery there and they LOVED being tipped. But as far as I know, in the US, it is NOT allowed.

    Would you report possible diversion?

    They do not see themselves as 'victims' when they're caught. I can say this because I was there once, 10 years ago. I was guilty and also glad that I finally was forced into treatment. Life has been so much better since and there's no telling where I would be now if it had continued. I was NEVER 'tourturing' my patients. They NEVER went without the pain meds that were ordered for them. Those are some very harsh blanket judgements that are not correct.
