  1. Not tell them that a specific employee is working, but that they may be come into contact with an employee who is positive for COVID.
  2. Covid and Hospitals: How are things now?

    Isn't the point is to scare people into getting the vaccine. COVID after all is deadly (true) so why not put a little deadly fear and shame on the ignorant who won't get vaccinated. Don't question me, question why you don't like the tone (I gue...
  3. Covid and Hospitals: How are things now?

    Are you kidding me? Oh boy. Just stop too much.
  4. Covid and Hospitals: How are things now?

    Irony. Is it true or not? Will anyone who is not vaccinated either die or may eventually be the cause of others to die because they will spread COVID? Isn't that the desired and only message that should be shared about vaccines? Wait...why ...
  5. Covid and Hospitals: How are things now?

    So does that mean if you are not vaccinated and get COVID you are likely 100% (with a few exceptions) guaranteed to end up in the ICU and then die. That if you do get COVID and if you are not vaccinated you will definitely end up hospitalized. With ...
  6. A coworker is back after 5 days. She says she still feels sick, but she is clear to work. And yes she is still positive. At least she is vaccinated so it really doesn't matter, so I'm told.
  7. Covid and Hospitals: How are things now?

    Situations are changing and standards will change as a result. At least they will be vaccinated so all is good. Yeah
  8. Can I still be a great nurse without prior CNA experience?

    The experience of a CNA makes all the difference, just like it does with an RN.
  9. Can I still be a great nurse without prior CNA experience?

    I think it also depends on where a CNA has worked. In a LTC facility they may have an leg up with basic ADL care. If they are from a hospital and has yrs experience working in an IMC, ER, or Med-Surg unit they will have a leg up on way more than ADL ...
  10. CNA's Are Tired Of Laziness

    CNAs get paid minimum wage in some states. Take that into account when reading all of the Task that they do. When the issue of patient to staff ratio comes up they are most likely referring to RNs. I don't believe there is a cap for CNAs. It cos...
  11. Covid and Hospitals: How are things now?

    Some reflection. Just thinking about that thread which mentions how a patient refusing her immune compromise husband to be treated by an unvaccinated nurse, despite that nurse properly wearing PPE. Now nurses are allowed to work while COVID positive...
  12. Vaccination Mandating

    The choir thumbs up with the chorus.
  13. Vaccination Mandating

    The choir speaks.
  14. Vaccination Mandating

    Good old projection. Thanks for sharing.
  15. What would you say to patients?
  16. Vaccination Mandating

    I live in a state that is apart of the USA.
  17. Vaccination Mandating

    I know, that was the reason for my post. As if just because only RNs and physicians didn't leave does not mean that any hospital can survive without the support staff that possibly did leave because of mandate.
  18. Vaccination Mandating

    Umm hospital still need those lowly ignorant dietary, engineers, and EVS personnel.
  19. Vaccination Mandating

    Whew... OK I'm done.

  21. How To Deal With Nasty Coworkers: Do you have any experiences?

    Wait doesn't staffing call the people they know will most likely agree to come in?
  22. How To Deal With Nasty Coworkers: Do you have any experiences?

    Just worry about your own reflection. If is good, do your job, and leave a reasonable decent run then you're all good.
  23. Do you ever get disappointed when certain nurses call in?

    I forgot. Especially when a leach doesn't have their tool to run ragged and that person can't find a replacement for the shift. Gotta get wise eventually
  24. Do you ever get disappointed when certain nurses call in?

    Sometimes I let out a mental CHEER when good hardworking CNAs or RNs get tired of being mistreated and stick it to the unit. Sure I may have to work hard, but I do it with a smirk.
  25. Do you ever feel the need to defend other coworkers?

    If their reputation proceeds them there is no need to. Any defense or lack of is validation of that reputation.
