What do nurses think about this? I will tell you what I know.
We had a new nurse start about 2 months ago. Three years experience. She was taking assignments like the rest of us. Then after about a month after starting she does nothing but triage. She said that all the walking around is too much on her and at her old job all she did was triage. She has asthma and the walking around exacerbates it. Therefore, other staff members (with much more experience and senority) no longer rotate through triage like we used to. We would also like a brake sometimes and be able to sit. She is easily 70lbs overweight. She says that the asthma is a disabilty and we have to accomodate her.
