Women especially use baby talk like that.  It makes me mad LOL.  

I happened to pick up a different shift once and I went to a floor for a rapid response or IV call (can't remember which), and one of the nurses asked if I was the "new rapid response nursey?"  WOW!?  I am not a nursey.  I just looked at this other nurse like she was crazy and told her no that I was the rapid response nurse from nights picking up another shift.

Ooh, are we going grammar? I hate- O2 stat, supposably, for all intensive purposes, (and irregardless). There are others, I'll come back and chime in again.

O2 Stat makes me cringe.

Becoming helpless the moment they become an inpatient.  "Wipe me up!" Um, how did you wipe up before you were in the hospital? (to the 30 yr old with intractable vomiting x1).

1). Adults who pull blankets over their heads and/or pretend to be asleep, like toddlers, thinking "You can't see me if I can't see you."  I see you!  And it's time for discharge papers now. 

2) Adults, particularly grown women, who regress to baby talk.  Please, please, please do not tell me you have to "poopie" if you're 35 years old

3) "Vomicking"

 

About the words people use - the one who has to poop might be embarrassed.  wouldn't you be if you were normally self-care but were suddenly very or totally dependent?

Vomicking is wrong and can be annoying.  However, lots of people hear their family members say this and are only repeating what they grew up with or live with.  Knowing what is means is part of cultural competence.

...anytime nursing is referred to as "my dream job/calling".

^^THIS!!!

.....or people who say they got into nursing because they "like helping people", as if there is no other profession in the world where they can help people. Then complain how stressed they are at work trying to "help people"....i mean did they not research the profession....lol. 

Last thing is, people who say they got into nursing because they will always have a job. Which is totally far from the truth. 

(ok, done!) LOL

Yeah, I just worked with a nurse that thought she was so cute for talking baby talk in an Elmer Fudd voice. I felt like socking her in the throat.

Duh... I think we all realize that but it still is annoying AND concerning about our educational system.

Yes!!!! I side eyed one of the patients the other day. This chick can stand up, WALK to the commode, then she presses the call light for us to wipe her. If you can do all this, why you need that from us? And have the balls to catch a attitude when we aren't there super quick. You have no problems using your hand stuffing your face , wipe your own ***.

When you are in a room and you go to leave and ask if they are all set for a bit, and they say YES, you walk out of the room down the hall and then they call you back! I was just there 2 seconds ago and you said you were all set!! :banghead:
