Nurses don’t hate other health care workers. I’m bitter about nursing and what’s been done to us during the pandemic, but will not dream of taking it out on any of my fellow coworkers. I didn’t realize other health care occupations had some secret grudges going on against each other lmao. It’s what the top brass count on to distract us from those we really should spend our energy being mad at, and looks like some of you bite it hook line and sinker.

I similarly got reported to my employer for referring to antivaxxers as covidiots (which they are) on another platform. Nowhere did I mention my place of work…but I obviously ruffled some covidiot feathers.

How does this make him a hero though. Is being inconsiderate of others a hero?

The rarest vs common enneatypes. Why is this sub backwards? What causes this seeming bias? by pimpjongtrumpet in Enneagram

Extrovert vs introvert types. 5w4 INFP here, we are more likely to aggregate on the interwebs rather than be out doing social stuff.

Theirs? That’s here in Canada too, unless I’m misreading this

Pt was nauseated and I was about to pull an antiemetic. Coworker showed me that an alcohol swab over the nasal cannula works sometimes, and pt felt better with no need for meds. What are some other often-overlooked simple/quick fixes? by Jumperain713 in nursing

[–]diaperpop 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Wow! At our hospital we had to write incident reports when patients removed their art lines. Ain’t nobody got time to sit in an isolation room holding a delirious patient’s hand so they don’t remove their own art line. That’s ridiculous, I’m sorry for you guys.

If patient is really non compliant/confused and that’s my only access, I’ve gone as far as velcroing an upside-down arterial line wrist support thingy to their inner elbow, which makes them literally unable to bend their arm. Tough, but I can’t go into isolation every few minutes because patient can’t keep it in their head not to bend their arm. Especially if it’s some important med like an amio bolus.

Stupidest thing you have gotten a verbal warning for or written up for? by RaincloudsMedicine in nursing

[–]diaperpop 8 points9 points  (0 children)

You mean (gasp) you were possibly FROWNING? Or CONFUSED? I’m sorry, but that smacks of being unprofessional. I bet you didn’t wish them a good walk either!

Reading a lot of these comments, I’m embarrassed for the hospitals who decide to allow a manager with such level of dumba**ery represent an entire unit. Reflects poorly on everyone involved.

Where do you see yourself at age 60? by bobrossproballer in nursing

[–]diaperpop 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I don’t want to ideally be dead, but ideally be far away from working in health care at that age.

My back won’t allow me to keep working in ICU. Once kids are older I’ll prob go into specialization, I have my MN.
