    Thoughtful Supervisor - Not!

    Don't you just love these people? My NM has a doctorate in nursing, but most of the time she doesn't have a bit of sense and it's always her way or no way. One time I said to her, "Don't you feel like writing a book or something???" I just don't get ...

    fear of vomit?

    I've always had a fear of vomit. In my 30 years in nursing, it has never gotten any better. My biggest fear is having a noro virus run through my facility. It happened about 4 years ago and I'll tell you, it was a living HELL! After day two I had to ...

    Are you paid when you clock out, or end of shift?

    Hmmm, I KNOW we need time clocks at our facility. We just might be the last place on earth who doesn't have them and I know it would solve many of our problems. Too many problems with people leaving early and still getting paid, people coming in late...

    Getting everyone else to sign their books

    That's why I love the Bar Code medication Administration which is all computerized. We always complained about it, but it really is the best system. The pt's wrist band is scanned to make sure they are the correct pt who will to recieve the medicati...
