I also skimmed a CNA thread where the CNAs and CNA students are describing CNA training as "mini nursing school ". SMH

I really don't have any experience with techs acting like nurses, the ones I've worked with know and do their jobs very well. And, I don't see NETY either. But...I have seen TEYN on occasion, Techs Eating Young Nurses. Lord help a new nurse that makes a mistake or even just does something different in front of a seasoned tech. lol, kinda, in a sad way.

When I first started on my unit, there was a nasty, rude tech who was definitely "TEYN". She was frankly one of the rudest people I'd ever met. I turned to another nurse who I trusted and I thought might be good to help figure out how to deal with this tech. The response - that's just her, there's really no changing it.

If I asked her for a BP because I had a BP Med (she took all the vitals, then charted), she'd tell me I need to just wait until it's charted. (Literally, she would be walking out of that patient's room as I was walking in.) If I said I needed an extra pair of hands to ambulate a patient, she would huff and puff like a beast as she rolled her eyes walking into the room, and take over completely herself, helping the patient up with both arms by herself, basically making me out to be an ahole because if she could do it herself, why couldn't I? If I ever tried delegating to her, she would either ignore me completely (meanwhile I could be 3 feet away from her, obviously audible) or she would give a nasty response regarding what an inconvenience and idiot I was being.

Essentially, her attitude toward me was that I was this new, lazy nurse who was making her do all the "real" work. She could not have been farther than the truth. I'm not generally a "go do this," nurse. I'm more of a "I'm going to do this, are you busy because I need an extra pair of hands," nurse.

I was so, so glad when I finally got fed up, said something to my manager, and was told "that situation has resolved itself". Not sure where she went, but god help her coworkers wherever she is.

Hey, I'm managing to keep up with this thread today..........just.

Here is something I would like to learn today:

You know when you put your cursor on "Like" and click it, a large quotation sign shows up where the word Like had been. But if your finger hiccups and you click it again, there's a blue square (that appears in the same spot) which then turns red.

What's the meaning of this?

When the quotes turn red, it means you're setting up a multi quote. If you want to quote multiple threads in one post, click each post you want to quote so that button turns red, then click "leave comment" at the bottom.

I thought the red light was Sauron looking at me through my laptop.

That's a relief.

Is that a LOTR reference? If so, hey, at least I know one even if I've never read the books or seen the movies!

So I've dug up some nice Yukon Gold potatoes from the garden. I'm in the prowl for a good cheesy, creamy potato soup - any tips?

I thought those only come in a bag at the grocery store.

Not cheesy, but I've got a great dill pickle soup recipe. It starts as a potato soup and goes on to feed my desire for salty-tangy goodness.
