    Nurse tech working as RN

    Patient is a sex offender with a tracker on his ankle

    The patient still has a right to quality care by medical staff. Searching the internet for this mans personal background is the same as you opening a medical record that is none of your business. It's a ankle monitor and parole office will contact th...

    Drug urine test after 12 hour shift

    Drug urine test after 12 hour shift

    Why 3-5 days on results, at my job you get your results right there after they collect urine sample before your sent back to your work unit. Sending you home and saying they will contact you sounds fishy to me, they should of known the results before...
