how would she muddy the waters?? and where/when did i say that she couldn't fit around the pt? she did fine. she had no trouble bending over, she never ever asked another nurse to do something because she was physically incapable of doing it. she was large but she was in the middle of everything right along with the rest of us.
can you spell "discrimination"? in the part i bolded, you contradict yourself. you have seen people of all sizes, ages, and either gender perform on both ends of the spectrum, yet you would not hire a large person on your unit?
the large ones are often the best ones because they have had to fight to do the same job as everyone else, because of managers with your point of view. if you, in your position as a manager, did not hire me because of my size and only because of that (i certainly hope that's not your practice but your above post makes it sound like that), then as another poster already stated, your unit would not deserve someone like me.
