i have never seen it interfere with equipment, i have seen it frequently interfere with the work that needs to be done.

when you tell them to get off the phone and take care of a patient they come off with some absolutely 'good' excuse..MY CHILDREN NEED TO KNOW THEY CAN CALL BE AT ANY TIME'

i don't knwe why some people apply for a job when they don't want to do the work

My Mom just had a pacemaker inserted this week and they told her not to use a cellphone on the side she had the pacer placed in. We don't have any cell phone bans at my facility and I have never had any issues with equipment malfunctioning. Personally my cell phone is turned off unless I need to make a call or am expecting one (which is rare). I'd rather be less available!

I just tell everyone who asks to use thier cell phone " You won't get any signal in here, if you go outside it will work much better" usually 9-10 times that works!!

I was in ICU a while back and all the nurses and staff carried at least 2 cell phnes. I had monitors up the ying-yang and nary a blip was out of place. I wonder how old the studies on this were?

When our new telemetry units and IV pumps came in the cell phone ban was lifted.
