Ugh, what the hell?! How do you put up with people like this? They question your team's every single order in the most arrogant, annoying, and persistent of ways, with some ******ed question... and then when you show them why they are wrong, they retreat to some bull**** copout answer. I've patiently explained my team's rationale for quite a lot of things, and most nurses have asked me quite nicely and patiently, but there are a few people who are simply too caustically critical for words. The worst was when I heard one of them, who was on her way to becoming one of Mary Mundinger's poster children, talk about how she would manage things completely differently when the state gives her the authority to do so. Any other stories? Or ways to quiet these folks? Or let them know what freaks they are? I KNOW like 897 nurses are going to join SDN now and militantly post against this, so I just want to note that I have had great experiences with nurses before, and I treat them (overall) with respect. My thread is geared towards the "bad apples" (and I'm sure these exist everywhere). Nurses: don't trash my thread!
