  1. What grosses YOU out?

    Reading these posts while eating yogurt is not a great idea. As a wound specialist, not much bothers me. But there are times when horrible toe nails and gunk in the beard will do me in!!!
  2. Why do we do this?

    I had a patient that had, in 2 inch letters, DNR tattoed on his upper left chest. He was in his fifties. There were no DNR orders anywhere, and I asked the pt if that was really what he wanted, and he did want to be DNR. I informed the dooctors, a...
  3. Advice needed for coworker problems!!!

    RUN AND GET OUT!!!
  4. Looking for the PERFECT ink pen ;)

    OMG, and I thought I was the only person obsessed with pens!! I like the Zebra-301 also, one of my favorites. But after reading these post, I think that a trip to Staples is in order to try something different!!
  5. Favorite bumper stickers

    My favorite - Glory be the day when hospitals get the money they need and the airforce has to hold a bake sale to buy a bomber.
  6. Nurse: 'I was fired for refusing flu shot'

    Not going to continue with this - I do wish you well and hope you have a great day.
  7. Nurse: 'I was fired for refusing flu shot'

    "You can tell your health information to anyone you like" and what if I do not want to tell anyone my health information. Sorry that I wrote hippa and not HIPPA
  8. Nurse: 'I was fired for refusing flu shot'

    Sounds like the Scarlet letter to me. And what about Hippa? Are you not telling people your medical information by the stickers on your badge and the mask you wear??
  9. How do you de-stress?

    I love nothing more than a good laugh - guess that is why Funniest Home videos is one of my favorit shows. Need the laughs doing the job we do. I also enjoy knitting (anyone need socks??!!) and wine sure does help!! Then again, BV and ginger also ...
  10. How do you de-stress?

    You said it!!
  11. 5 days with days/evening switch is nuts!

    Schedules, shift roatations, and staffing - nothing has changed in the 31 years that I have been a nurse. Why expect it to change now??
  12. Who else loves their job

    I am a wound/ostomy specialist and I do love what I do. I consult on patients and try to help them. I am on my own, doing my thing at work. I LOVE not getting too tied up in the Mickey mouse happy crap that goes on on the nursing units.
  13. Told "No WAY I could claim overtime tonight"

    Our facility did the same thing with overtime, we were told there would be no overtime paid for the 1st half hour. Someone got smart and contacted lawyers, and the facility was found guilty. Facility had to go back a # of years and pay out the over...
  14. Help me with self scheduling ideas!

    I would suggest to be more flexible and keep an open mind. You may not get what you want all of the time, and should not expect this. I would bet my bottom dollar that not all of the staff on your unit will get what they want. Like I say, life is ...
  15. Wet-to-dry dressing question

    As a wound specialist, wet to dry dressings should be a thing of the past. WTD was used to debride, and in the true sense of the dressing, should be left on until dry and then pulled of (while dry) to debride. The problem with this is that it will ...
