    OP: I have been to hell & back going through all of this. I blogged about it; it's therapeutic. The resources at the bottom of the article offer more information on the spectrum of disruptive behavior & actually delineate words like incivilit...

    What nursing task do you loathe???

    I loathe the responsibilities that are delegated to nurses that do not require a nursing license to be carried out: -ordering jello or whatever else a patient suddenly craves when you have a million other things to do -administrative work for ano...
