Dear IT dept. It's great that you are striving to improve the computer charting system. However, did you actually want night shift to be aware of these changes? It would not appear to be the case, seeing as how most of the classes were from 1300-1500. The only one that was close to night shift ends at 1930, an hour after our shift begins. Great planning, eh?

To other coworkers: Is it too much to ask for you to clean the med cart up before I relieve you? Is it too much to ask to restock the cups and med syringes? Is it too much to ask to take down empty tube feeding bottles and restock those?

I actually said that to some co-workers once. They were highly, highly offended. A few weeks later, I got a verbal warning for "leaving meds out of order in the med cart."

To the lazy co workers GET OFF YOUR FAT BUTT AND HELP other people. god i hate when a whole group sits around while patients needs to be turned/repositioned, changed etc and get angry or complain loudly and agressively if you ask for help. as if i am intenitally covering the patients in poop. TO the cnas IT IS YOUR JOB to help . Doesn't matter if we just changed that patient, he/she NEEDS to be changed again, too bad. maybe he/she needs vitals more often. IF i am doing something else and need them done and you are sitting around, get up and do it ! . sooooooooooooo sick of the lazy coworkers.

TO the doctors, if some other nurse didn't follow an order, report something. DO NOT take it out on me because I am the first nurse you see on that floor. NOT MY PATIENT AND I DO NOT KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT IT.

I am not an idiot. If I got assigned the 4 train wrecks and 2 admits and charge's buddies got all the walkie talkies and no admits. I will say something to the charge. Especailly when this is routinely done to the passive new nurses and then they are accused of not being able to "handle it". Of course after 20 years of only getting the walkie talkies you can handle 4 walkie talkies.

I can't stand working with you.

You belong in a locked psych ward for life

Get up and answer call bells you lazy person.

Stop leaving the unit for smoke breaks and expecting me to do your work

Don't freak out if someone has a mental illness, a history of bipolar or depression doesn't mean they'll morph into freddy Kruger in fron of your eyes...or try to jump out of the window.

XD This one made me laugh. The visual picture was just too much :D

Lol I just really hope no one thinks like that.

You have a locker- use it! Put your stuff in it, not scattered on the floor in front of multiple lockers.

You forgot to mention the fact that when they pop the last pill out of the med card, it would be nice if they would get a new one out of the "extras" drawer and put it with the patient's other meds. Also, when you see that the pt is low on a med, PEEL OFF the reorder sticker so when the last med is popped, I don't have to "borrow" from someone else!!

Who on earth puts empty boxes back in the med cart/cupboard? and for crying out loud when you see that there is only a few more meds left how about ordering some more? Nothing like coming on shift on a weekend when pharmacy is closed to find no meds, empty boxes and having to hunt for replacement meds.

The best is when they ask for help and you help them but when you need it *crickets*
