    This happened to a nurse I used to work with. Working in L&D in the cold north. She would wear a turtle neck under her scrubs. If she had to scrub a c-section she would go into the med room and change out of the turtlenck. She did this numer...

  5. 7p-7a nurses: do you spend enough time w/ your family?

    I went to 12 hour nights so I could see my 9yo son more. When I worked days I left the house before he had to get up for school. Got home around 8pm just in time to say "go to bed" Now, I can get home in time to bring him to school (his school s...

    No supplements here except by mom's request or dr's order. This is very rare though. If babe isn't nursing well, mom pumps and give that to babe. We cupfeed. If babe is jaundiced, under lights, usually pc per md order
  12. What do you HATE to do at work?

    I hate to write or rewrite policies! I hate it when we are slow and my nurse manager asks "Can you write a policy for ______?" She knows that I would rather pull my eyelashes out one by one than wwrite a policy!:rotfl:
  13. Trying to Bust a Strike

    I think he meant that the patients deserve preofessional, skilled care while the nurses strike. Not that they didn't receive it before the strike.
