    Things you'd LOVE to tell coworkers...and get away with it!

    Just because you're in the parking lot at 0700 does not mean you're "on time". Why do you insist on first lunch and then always leave late for it, resulting in e everyone's lunch starting late? In no setting is it okay to give a supp, put the pt on a commode, and then report off for your lunch. "But you said I always leave late for lunch"... Okay, I feel better!

    Diabetic care in corrections.

    Neats, well said. I agree with you 100%.

    Are you going to work tommorow in the big storm?

    I don't call out for weather. I plan ahead. The same ones call out, and the same ones show up. There is always people who come from farther away then the ones who call out. And if it happens to be my day off, don't even bother calling me - unless you're willing to swap a shift...

    Scrubs: MOBB, Dickies, other favourites??

    Urbane scrubs - I like the cut and length of the tops. I believe they're made by Landau.

    When did you know that Nursing was the right path for you?

    To be honest with you I knew when I was 5 yrs old. It was always what I wanted to do. In the '60's there was a show called "Dr.'s At Work", (I think that was the name), and I was fascinated with medical stuff. Then when I was maybe 10 or so I found the "Cherry Ames" books and I cherished them. I just always knew.

    Safety of Jail Rn with no deputys or guards?

    Wow! I can't believe they have you do these things w/o a C.O. present. I have 5 yrs working in county jails, this would be unheard of! Unsafe for you and a security risk for the facility. I'm curious - how big of a facility is it?

    orientation. check. Computer training. check. First day..TOMORROW

    I was just thinking of you - today's your day! After you get all ready for day 1 of your first nurse job take a picture of yourself, 20 yrs from now you'll cherish that photo! Again, best of luck.

    Nurses working without health insurance

    To Sarafina - if you do happen to pay that $10,000 deductible this year then the new year will roll in and you'll have to start over! Useless health insurance - I can't believe it's come to this!

    Nurses working without health insurance

    It's becoming useless even when you have it - the new "high deductible" policies ensure you have to pay more and more out of pocket.

    Nurses working without health insurance

    I work for a small correctional health care corp. They cancelled the employee health insurance in 10/08, in 3/09 I had to have a hip replacement - $40,000.

    Diabetic care in corrections.

    I work in a fairly small town county jail. The provider and I don't see quite eye to eye on our policies for diabetics. What I would like to know is how are other facilities managing diabetics, specifically: 1. Does your facility go with carb control or calorie control diet for the diabetic inmate? 2. Are the food items that inmates can buy from the commissary restricted?

    Future of LPN?

    Nurse156, what you say is true. To me the very definition of nursing practice is a process of assessment and response - when it first became "policy" with nursing boards that LPN's don't assess I thought that seemed ridiculous. All day long I assessed and responded - and still do - that's the job!
