    Smoking in Unform..unprofessional???

    Hi Guys!! I am a long time member of this forum, recently inactive for various reasons..anyway, hello to all of those who know me, and those of you that dont!! :) Heres a little question i wanted to ask the forum, this week my trust has introduced a ban on nurses smoking in uniform by the front door of the hospital as it gives the patients a bad impression and looks unprofessional, all smokers (im not one myself, i add) must now go to the back of the hospital to smoke in the loading bay area. there are smoking shelters at the front of the hospital (patient use) the nurses must not use these but go to the rear of the hospital as stated above. so, my question is...what is your opinion? is this right, does a smoking nurse look unprofessional?, whats next, fat nurses banned from eating crisps in their uniform?? I am not saying that the trust is wrong (heaven forbid) just wondered what you all think?

    Back stabbing

    i dont think its meant as an excuse for the behaviour, what i notice at work is when pressure comes from above for more and more stupid stuff which seems to matter more than the patients, people get 'fed up' and ******** starts, usually at each other. at least thats what it seems like to me Ive only been qualified a few years and the job has changed so much its unbelieveable, my boss had me in the office the other day asking me if everything was ok and did i have any problems at home because i forgot to fill in two vips scores on a very busy night where i was the only experianced staff on a shift, I was working with a bank HCA who had never seen an obs machine in her life and a 12 month qualified nurse who needs to retrain in my opinion as it took her 3 quarters of an hour to give a bolus dose of amoxyl, which i had drawn up for her!! (shes regular staff, doing her degree in her spare time) I had two cases of peritionitis arrive on the ward which only I could treat, (the other staff nurse doesnt have time to do the on ward training-too busy doing degree) one bleeding neckline which needed lots of compression and FFP etc, confused wandering patients interferring with lines, I wrote my cardex and half the other staff nurses cardex as she was so slow she didnt manage to get them done (all 8 of them) and then my boss has a go about 2 pieces of paper i didnt have time to fill in!! .. its the people pecking at your head all the time like little birds about stuff which doesnt seem that important which takes us away from real nursing, thats what makes people ***** and moan... well...its my excuse anyway!

    I think this may be a sad reflection of discontent and low morale at work to be honest, people tend to turn on each other when under pressure or fed up
