I work float pool. I was trained/oriented to all the equipment in our hospital, given classes, provided a decent orientation on all floors I have to float to. Personally, I have always been welcomed and shown appreciation on every floor so far. I have gotten the "crap" assignment a few times but that is more the exception where I am. I have a kick-buttocks manager who sticks up for us. I agree with what psu_213 wrote, this is a management issue.
