This can be really touchy when the "older" man in your firm put pressure on you to do things you know are illegal. I am sorry to say that I've experienced that. They think that because you are a man that you will "understand." Boy were they surprised when I stood up to them and said - 'hey that's illegal, not to mention really unfair.' Do what's right people... Not just because it's the law.

Hi Tom sheepandgoats,

I have been in health care for most of my adult life, so I don't have anything else to compare it to. It can be a very stressful place to work, and has numerous rules. The State, Health Department, HIPPA, OCHA, etc., have laws, rules & regs. Besides that everyone has the states number, and can confidentially turn a peer in at any time. I knew a new C.N.A who overreacted, and turned a nurse in for something. The nurse was temporarily suspended due to investigation. I believe she was cleared of the wrong doing, but she said she would change careers soon, and was bitter about the incident. When your dealing with human lives, there needs to be laws, rules and regs, but it's a lot of pressure. On top of that you have to satisfy the nurse manager who may have 101 rules of her own. So the environment can be very stressful, and led to a kind of paranoia.

My wife worked for several years in the machining industry. The poster you’ve pictured is the same one she kept in her toolbox. She’s not in machining anymore. She is in health care.

There is the well-known phenomenon of nurses who “eat their young,” in an atmosphere in nursing so sniping and backbiting that it’s a real challenge to work in the field. My wife's instructors have commented on it. She has observed it. I, who am also in health care, sort of, have observed it. I suspect it has little to do with women per se. The health care field is so saddled with absurdly petty rules covering the most minute event that anal people find a natural home, everyone else hunkers down with an “they’re out to get me” mentality and strives first of all to cover their rear ends. Since nursing is still populated overwhelmingly by women, it is women who get the bad rap.

Maybe it’s not everywhere. And most of the rules are ultimately inspired, most likely, by the need to safeguard oneself from lawsuits, the type brought by lawyers, who are still mostly (gulp) guys.

Admittedly opinionated, Awake. But you’re in nursing. What do you think?

Hi LadyBanana,

Yes, It is the same video that Romulus was talking about.

Tagged? Oh, you tricky, slippery banana! ;o)

Hilarious!

It's a little like the "Women Know Your Limits" which I think maybe Romulus is referring to:

I blogged this a while ago Here




I've tagged you HERE Hope you don't mind :)

Hi romulus crowe,

I have never heard of Harry Enfield, but watched the video. What a roit!

Hey, why go into hidding? Hope you come back soon. (Who was that masked man?)

I laughed, I admit, then realised that when this was written it was intended to be perfectly serious.

Harry Enfield has made several spoof 'public information films' on things like this. Here's one guaranteed to raise any wonam's hackles...

Now, I'm going to hide for a while.

Hi S'onnie,

I'm afraid your right. Although the part about frequent breaks did appeal to me.

too funny! What is scary is that there are still men out there who would firmly agree with what was written.
