Paid Time Off (PTO), Nursingdiscussions.com:"I'm just wondering how many of you work for hospitals that implement PTO?? My current full-time permanent hospital has begun this system and we feel like we are being screwed big time."

Put Male Nurses In Panties, Nursingdiscussions.com:"A recent letter from a male nurse describing his experience of being forced to wear female underwear was most interesting. The girls who did this to him and his roommate were absolutely right. For some time now I have been concerned over the appearance of my male nurses. Most uniform trousers are not opaque enough to camouflage the fly fronts of men's jockey briefs. Bikini briefs look just as ridiculous because the low waistbands are frequently visible below the jacket half of the uniform."

Paramedics, EMS, EMTs, Pre-hospital

    Cranky Chick: EMS Archives:"I once worked a night shift with a paramedic who, when referencing the mapbook to navigate our ambulance to an emergency, began striking himself in the head with the book when he became overcome with the stress of having to tell me how to get to our call. These are heavy, THICK notebooks with pages and pages of maps representing every corner of the county inside. Over and over, he kept striking himself in the forehead with the book, chastising himself with, "Think, damnit! Think!"

Patient Complaints:

    Stay or Go??? Nursingdiscussions.com:"I've been a nurse for 13 years, last 7.5 in the ER. I've never been written up in the 13 years I've been a nurse...until now. Unhappy patient receives different dx from another hospital - writes letter and finds fault with EVERYTHING we did for him. Pt. had 3 BM's, I documented each, Pt. stated that, after his 3rd BM "my nurse said she didn't look at the other two, why should she look at this one!" I did document all three in the PN. So, that part I'm o'kay on. He and family state that "the nurses made comments about the smell" R/T his BM's - I have absolutely no recollection of this occurring. Apparently, neither do my co-workers. I was written up anyway for behaving "unprofessionally" with the patient."

Pet Peeves

Not sure where to post this:"My big thing is I cannot handle anything that has to deal with the mouth...Yes I can't suction a patient without gagging and throwing up..yes as embarrasing as it sounds I have thrown up when I absolutely had no choice but to suction a patient...I don't do well with anything that comes out of the mouth. Another friend of mine can't deal with feet...Call it weird or whatever but we all have them..Dig deep and post the one thing that you absolutely cannot deal with when it comes to your role as a nurse."

Pets (Animals, Veterinary)

Pet Therapy:"I have been reading a bit about pet therapy programs and they sound very cool but haven't actually seen one anywhere. Guess the animal lover in me is coming out. These seem like a great way to lighten people up and well, make them feel good. I was wondering if anyone has worked with a pet therapy program and if so, what kind of benefits have you seen from it? Has their been any major complications, drawbacks? I am thinking of trying to get one started for a project at my clinical sight."

Physician Assistants (PAs)

******************************************************

Physicians, Doctors:

    Physicians in the Triage Room:"I've been a nurse for 16 years ; 11 ICU and the past 5 in ER. We are trying institute having a Physician in the Triage Room with the Triage Nurse during peak hours 11a-11pm. We are trying to work out some of the glitches before we go LIVE in April. We use IBEX as our computer Triage/Nursing Documentation which means that the Triage Nurse has to have the triage in before the doc can start his writeup on the patient. We anticipate that this will be a great idea for those that don't need to spend more than a few minutes with a doc ie: wound care check, nurse maid elbow, simple stuff."
    http://www.nursingdiscussions.com/ed

    ******************************************************

    Rude Doctors, Nursingdiscussions.com:"Would love to know how some of you handle rude doctors, the ones that think every question is stupid; the ones that use every available opportunity to publicly humiliate. Last week, I had had enough and yelled right back, and the way my co-workers looked at me, I was half expecting to be sacked. It didn't happen, but I wonder if I potentially face valid administrative recrimination for speaking up for myself. Feedback greatly appreciated!"

Professional Development:

    Working to improove (Going Back To School, LPN, Education, Professional Development):"I am an L.P.N. with 10 years experience. I have done it all...surgery, doctors office, Tx. nurse in nursing homes, infection control, and now consulting. This is a new challenge all its own and I fear that I need more and new resources. I consult for a specialty bed and oxygen provider. We do D.M.E. and also have a closed door Rx. I have been with this company for the last 2 years and have a pretty solid position, however.... I now want to take this to the next level. I know getting my R.N. is the next obvious jump but I don't know that I have the time to focus on that step yet."

Profession (The Nursing):

Would You Recommend The Nursing Profession?:"I'm having a hard time recommending Nursing right now. For a young woman of college age, there are too many other fields they can go into that have higher pay, more respect, better working conditions and less stress. Can't see myself recommending a job that will leave them close to tears at the end of each day. I know what things are like on the floors by personal experience and listening to my wife (an ICU nurse) vent each day. We have a daughter who will grow up with both her parent Registered Nurses in active practice. Will we encourage her to go into Nursing?"
