    Nurses that “only do it for the money”

    OMG I was just talking about this yesterday. I can't stand it when nurses act like this. I find myself just rolling my eyes. As if they nevvvverrrrrr get annoyed when a patient acts like a horse's behind. 😤

    My first thought as well. In fact, I wonder if the patient herself would even test positive for opiates. There a so many situations of caregivers or family members taking or selling narcotics intended for the elderly patient that it makes my head spi...

    What do you do on weekends off?

    Mavrick! With all the delicious places to eat in Seattle, you had Taco Bell for lunch. I am truly shocked and almost a little offended .

    Student Nurse Med Error

    There is no such thing as a student nurse med error. Think about that for a minute. When I precept nursing students who can give meds, we go over all meds together before proceeding. Your preceptor should have been watching you more closely.

    past medication error help

    Forget contacting an attorney or turning yourself in. Take a deep breath. Do you honestly think you are the only nurse in the history of nursing to have made a med error? You are HUMAN. So you didn't turn yourself in. You got scared and were fresh of...

    Trouble for taking Doctors candy

    They wanted to fire you over what sounds like a huge misunderstanding over CANDY? Man, I'd be leaving that place fast. What a bunch of morons.
