There are a lot of threads on here re: color coding. My opinion has (and always will be)....
#1 Pts don't know the difference. Anyone (housekeeping, dietary, PT, OT, CNA, RN, LPN, lab.....)who enters a pt room is "my nurse".
#2 It is my opinion that color coding is just another way of robot-izing all of us.
I comply simply because I have to bring in that ever so important paycheck. It would be very cool if the hosp that I work in would provide scrubs. I would have more of a problem wearing a scrub that was embroidered w/ hosp logo that I had to pay for. That'd just stink but if I loved my job enough, I would do it. I just make darn sure that I kept all receipts and claim on my taxes. Now am having to buy a new color. Going from navy blue to purple. Now instead of looking like a blueberry, I can go into work being a grape. Now if I was in a bad mood, would that make me sour grapes????:roll :roll :roll :roll
