    Nurses Notes: Guidelines On What Not To Chart

    That'd be great, if the patients actually said these things to every nurse that takes care of them. I have no knowledge of that and it's just interesting that this particular nurse is the only person in whom EVERY one of her patients confides. It's quite obvious she's trying to make herself look better and make everyone else look like they're falsifying documentation.

    Nurses Notes: Guidelines On What Not To Chart

    It will also assist the patient's lawyer in sinking your ship. An incident report is not discoverable in litigation until someone who doesn't remember what they were taught in nursing school refers to it in the patient's chart. It is fundamental (basic knowledge taught in the lowliest of lowly nursing programs, subject matter for the NCLEX) to not refer to incident reports in a patient's chart.

    We have a seasoned nurse who likes to write things like "pt complained of being turned so much. Says "you are the only one who makes me turn...." "only nurse that cleaned my foley..." Etc. That ain't gonna earn you any awards for Nurse of the Year, sweets.

    Top 10 Reasons We Get Fired! - Frequent Sick Days and Tardiness

    I've worked salary and let me tell you, I'd rather be subjected to a time clock, because I get paid for every hour I work. Can't say as much for salaried jobs.

    Good Excuses for Missing Work

    Yeah, late call would tick me off and I'd probably ask what the problem was too. However, I wouldn't be offended if someone didn't want to answer!

    Seriously, if I hear one more new grad at work yapping about how soon they're going to run back to school to get their NP so they can work at Minute Clinic I'm going to flip out. Honestly? If the current crop of children whose feelings can't be hurt by such things as letter grades and keeping score in soccer turn out to be the way I think they will, the older generations shouldn't worry about getting edged out of their jobs by these soon to be overgrown brats. Who will want to hire them?

    Some hiring decisions I'm sure are made because the candidate is "like" the person hiring them, or the person interviewing them. Example, my manager is skinny, cute, and has a baby voice. She hires a lot of skinny, cute girls with baby voices. At one point the night shift had so many baby voices the hospitalist would say "didn't I JUST talk to you five minutes ago? Why are you waking me up again?!"

    So much of this thread makes me think of my favorite television judge, Judge Judy, and her sage advice: "Beauty fades, dumb is forever."

    Seriously...an older person disagreeing with a younger person on here = eating the young. Whatever. What do you do with someone like me? I'm old but inexperienced. Am I an appetizer?

    All I have to say is live a little, you'll get over being offended by every little thing.

    I missed any and all reference to new hires having bad bedside manner. And I did read every post, though it was a number of days ago. It's also amusing to reference eating your young to a person who clearly stated they are 32 years old with seven years of nursing experience. Whoever originally came up with the term that nurses eat their young should be shot, if they're not dead already.

    Yeah I'd be glad I was a guy too, with their natural ability to magically make appx 25% more than a woman for the same job.

    Unfortunately life experience can't be taught. They just have to learn through their mistakes. Til then they will continue to speak as if they know everything, and we will continue to be entertained by it. I am sure 50 year olds think the same of me.
