    First Reaction to Changes

    I like it so far. Oddly my avatar is gone. That's all right though I can replace. Glad to be back on!!

    "He just wanted to know..."

    I haven't read a single comment, but I get asked all the time, even today (am working) was asked if I am from "around here." And I'm white as white gets and in the South. Pts just like to start conversation.
  3. I've been on AN since 2015. Was pregnant and sitting in a recliner with my feet up and bored. Had been a stalker for years, but joining has made it much more fun and engaging. My biggest accomplishment. Hmm. I would say being a mom of an all-boy 3 year old and have maintained my sanity.

    Nurse Imposters

    I guess I am confused on how it's illegal. Because, for example, I have a friend who is not an RN or LPN but she's worked for a gastroenterologist for years, and she calls herself "Dr. Reed's nurse." And he refers to her as his "nurse." She has a degree in accounting (doesn't use this degree). If I called that office and asked to speak to the nurse I wouldn't feel it inappropriate if she came to the phone as the nurse. Yet as I posted above about my son's peds office, it's abused in many situations.

    Nurse Imposters

    I GET SO TIRED OF THIS TOO!!!!! Whenever I call the peds office for my 3 y.o. with an illness and don't necessarily need a visit and I ask to speak to the nurse, I swear it's this young 18, 19 y.o. dude that doesn't even wear a badge that calls himself the nurse, or it's the receptionist. I once gave flack to him and her about it. I agree it's so inappropriate.

    Sexual harrassment or just an old creep?

    Well the fact I am 30 and he's in his 60s characterizes him as too old a date lol. Doesn't mean 60s is "old."

    Sexual harrassment or just an old creep?

    Exactly. I do not agree that in any fashion is it "a term of endearment" as some have suggested when a male calls a female coworker "beautiful." To follow up, word must have gotten to him. I have not seen him but maybe twice since I posted originally, and when I do he is extremely quick about his work and goes on his way. I think I told enough coworkers and they noticed it themselves and something was said to him. So problem solved. Thanks y'all for all the advice!!
  8. I haven't read but a few comments. Simply, I would have snapped on time 1 if someone called me anything negative in front or not in front of a pt. They'd gotten their head bit OFF. That's bullying and absolutely unacceptable. Nuff said.
  9. Ok yall so I need some insight. I've been working at my current job for almost 2 years. There is an older guy that works here, a pharmacist, in his 60s that has often chatted with me and I literally never thought anything of it. He's a very interesting individual. Used to work for the DEA part of FBI and raided drug neighborhoods and things of that sort. He was always friendly and spoke and I was friendly and spoke. So now all of a sudden, it's dawned on me like, goodness he's down here a lot lately. Well he's coming down to my unit (ER) 4, 5, 6 times in a 12 hr shift and comes over and wants to talk. He's said "Hi beautiful" to me twice and once came up behind me a whispered really close to my face in what I consider a creepy way. He'll come down before his shift is over to say bye and talks to me like I'm his wife. It's embarrassing! My coworkers are like "Boy he's really on to you" and laugh. They'll even tell me if they see him so I can go hide somewhere. He looks for me they say, if he can't find me. I'm getting really tired of it and quite honestly I want him to go AWAY. I'm married in my 30s and am not interested dude. I am even giving him a straight face and he still isn't getting it. He said "You don't seem like yourself today. You're not as happy." Not only is it just getting old, I have work to do. what do yall think? I am overreacting??

    Tattoos in the workplace

    I can't understand why your boss would comment that if you got more tats you wouldn't be able to go far in nursing basically. That's bs. I know male nurses with their whole chest and arms tattooed. They just wear long sleeves under their scrubs. Culture is shifting away from "COVER THOSE THANGS UP." It's becoming more and more accepted and that's fine with me.

    'My Patient died' Facebook post

    First of all, its HIPAA, not HIPPA. Second, sounds like a homework question. And no your aunt didn't violate HIPAA but you can by posting stuff like this. Leave work completely out of social media. Period.

    Is this discrimination?

    Ok so I just have a blunt question to ask, is it "racist" to note peculiarities around different cultures? Does everyone need to be expected to just ignore that some ethnicities do have possibly different values and norms??? I mean, anymore it's like you can't even say "Black's love folk music" and you're "racist."
  13. If I refused to care for a white supremacists, as much as that disgusts me, I'd be as guilty of partiality and prejudice as him. That's the way I see it.
