    Report or not when administrators have favorites

    IMHO, this isn't going to go well for you, BUT, I couldn't live with myself if I didn't report it. There is a difference between a bad report, and no report, and you essentially got no report. I've been a nurse for a long time in various units, and I would be livid if I were you. She abandoned this patient - the patient literally did not have a nurse at one point. I would report this to whoever I needed to until something proactive was done. Good luck!
  2. My husband is an RN, and he's been on the receiving end of MANY female RN's giving him backrubs, etc, and it makes him extremely uncomfortable. This doesn't only happen to women. He now makes it widely known that he doesn't want to be touched by anyone, for any reason. And also that he's happily married. I've witnessed the harassment he's endured from others before they realized I was his wife, and it boggles my mind that people think this behavior is appropriate.

    Charge nurse

    My husband has been an RN for 22 years, has worked almost every specialty in the hospital (right now he only works critical care units, PACU and the ED), and he's been nagged to be a charge for years. He HATES charge. He prefers to take care of his patients, help other staff out when needed, and go home.

    Got a hospital job after 10 year hiatus

    Congratulations! Was it difficult to find a job? How did you write your resume and get the attention of the hiring manager, if you don't mind me asking? I have a friend in a similar position who wants to return to work.

    Do you look up the push rate for IVP meds?

    "Do you look up the push rate for IVP meds?" Yes.

    I'm sorry, but this is hilarious!
  8. In my experience, the exact opposite is true.

    How much do nurses make?

    This is great, thank you! This all fascinates me. I'm nerding out! LOL

    Anti-nurse commercial

    I'm so sick and tired of politics. You can't escape it, not even here.

    Help! Pre-employment nicotine test!

    I couldn't agree more!

    Singlism in the workplace

    I haven't experienced singlism, but I've witnessed it. I've also repeatedly witnessed preferential treatment given to staff who have kids. It doesn't matter how anyone tries to justify this behavior, it's inappropriate, unprofessional, and unacceptable. It shouldn't be happening.

    Why do some nurses hate it in others pump at work?

    There are two sides to every story, and I wouldn't make any assumptions or judgement calls until hearing both sides. Especially since there are many reasons why a nurse might have a problem covering for a pumping coworker.

    What’s in your bag/what should I have as a newbie?

    Birkenstocks are the best! :)

    Forced out to pasture

    There's a current shortage in my state, and a much larger projected shortage. The schools can't prepare enough nurses.
