  1. Stocked with supplies

    Do you find yourself running from room to room looking for basic supplies? Draw sheets, chux, pillow cases? Obviously the housekeeper does not stock for the weekend night crew. So, back and forth I go looking for essential supplies. So the question ...
  2. Sticks and stones...

    I have a life outside of work --- Makes me sound like an addict, but I have a drink and a cigarette among other things in my arsenal outside of the hellhole of work - peace out
  3. Nurses Attacked by Patient

    I just wonder if these poor nurses are now being double victimized by the hospital management for whatever excuse, blame job, justification or bad PR. I read somewhere that the hospitals official statement to the press had a comment with something al...

  12. I must make a confession

    This is something that is so dumb and so stupid, but I must confess this because it is eating me up inside. The other night at work (1800-0700), I was so massively busy I didnt have time to get my dinner from the cafeteria. I am a big boy, and I must...
  13. So, In an effort to "control costs" the hospital has taken DRASTIC and UNSAFE steps to save money. Honest to God ( NO JOKE) a partial list of the new policies are listed below. There are three 20-bed units on my floor (all general Med/Surg) keep that...
  14. Bad Dreams ---- What does this mean?

    Was out of work for 3 months of medical leave/Stress leave. Returned full time on 10/26/12. All has been well up to last thursday when i was fired by a patient. No specifics were given to me by my TL, so I didnt think much of it. Cut to this past wee...
