    Wall of Shame

    That is something my former don would do!! That is definitely messed up, and I could see it really disturbing visitors/family members (to say nothing of what would happen if a state surveyor saw it!!!)

    ADON that doesn't listen

    Not too sure what you're asking

    Staff turnover

    Oh that's nothing. We've had nine nurses leave this summer.

    Would you work on the same unit as your ex sister-in-law?

    No way, and I don't think I'd want to work with any family members.

    Misusing the low paid nurse

    If I am understanding correctly, that would mean each licensed nurse had 60 patients and each CNA had 60 patients? If so that is wildly unsafe for everyone involved. And if the acuity of the building is that IV patients are accepted, that's really troubling.

    Is private duty nursing a stable job? Options for LPN's?

    Run from private duty!

    Foot Care

    This is a really old thread, but Atrac-tain is the holy grail for feet. It is a miracle worker.

    PDN and boundaries

    That's sad, and IMO abuse that's reportable to state agency.

    PDN and boundaries

    I was never able to do it- one of the many reasons I left pdn

    Animal Vets Sterilizing Human Females?

    I'm still confused

    A simple reminder of why we do what we do, for everyone to reflect

    Cringing hard at your post, OP. Skipping your own nourishment to chart on patient care isn't only unnecessary: it's illegal. Most corporations take meal and labor laws pretty seriously. Nurses that say they skip self care, etc for the greater good of a patient often overstate the importance of their role to their patient. If you didn't go in to work tomorrow, your patients would all survive. Another coworker would be handling them. You aren't God, and you probably have saved fewer lives than you think.

    Animal Vets Sterilizing Human Females?

    Ummmmm I have never heard of this practice

    Favorite sayings?

    "Falls come buy one, get one free and I'm not in the mood for a bargain tonight."

    Directors covering open shifts

    That's AMAZING that you do all that other stuff! That's so helpful. Ours will not do anything related to the floor or patient care whatsoever.

    Using Hand Sanitizers - Is a squirt and go method enough?

    Oooh I abhor that foam. It feels nasty. I do not like most alcohol sanitizers either. The only one I like is genuine Purrell. But I only use it if no other option: I prefer plain soap and water.

    Double Shift

    Thanks for everyone who answered. The problem a lot of people have been having- is getting overly tired and making mistakes during those 16 hour shifts. (We're not a long term care center and its a frenetic pace.)
