When you come to the hospital as a patient, family member or friend, here are some things to keep in mind.........first, we are not a day care, concierge nor wait staff....so please keep children quiet, requests to a minimum and realize for us to take care of you or your family member we need to be able to do our job. Also, we have been specially trained to do our job. Therefore, we don't need you standing on top of us when we come into the room. Add to that, if you call to get information over the telephone, realize that we are bound by privacy laws that affect our job. Unless you have a special code you will be denied information except for they are stable and resting....so please quit asking! Finally, if it's night time, let your family member rest. A phone call at 9-11:30 at night can wait till morning. Sleep is a major factor in being able to heal and patients can't do that when their phones are constantly ringing.

Well said! Those folks with those requests eat our computer time up, and when the phone rings, it makes patients wake up, and they request stuff, and it eats our computer time up.

Because we have unreal amounts of documentation to do from accurately documenting what medicines have been given, to any assessments, doctor visits, change in condition, orders, interaction with the pt and family, any teaching that needs to be documented......and the list goes on.

U sound very unprofessional. I can't believe u don't want the patient or family members to make request because it takes up ur computer time. U r not just treating the patient but ur treating the family. So do ur computer time when u find the time. It's one thing to think it but another to say it. Just unprofessional and tacky!

I would ad to this list:

1. Please do not call the ER seeking medical advice over the phone. We have no way of assessing you over the phone to know whether you should come in and be seen or not. When you are told this, please do not ask to speak to the doctor. They are busy, and they do not bring their Magic 8 balls to work with them. Therefore, they cannot assess you over the phone either.

2. Stop complaining about the wait time. If you come to the ER for stupid stuff like a runny nose, sore throat (which you humorously call 10/10 on the pain scale), or a 99.0 degree fever (which is NOT a fever), expect that you will have to wait. The sicker patients have to be seen first. This rule is especially true of Medicaid patients. When you are not paying for a service, you have no right to bitch about said service. If you are on a medical card, you probably don't have a job, and thus, have nowhere else important to be. Stop complaining.

oh the typical topix response from someone who obviously DOES NOT know what a 12 hour shift in a BUSY hospital entails. Perhaps if you were educated enough to do this type of work you would understand. But just keep on asking how much I need in gas before you pump it, if I want rolls with my meal, or if a shirt is folded to your bosses liking, if the botched haircut you just did is pleasing, or if some idiot on the other line just can't get his remote working.

Enough that you probably spend a minimum of 3 hours of Facebook or other social media trying to be nosey, or cheating on your man. We all nurses and hospital staff are some of the biggest hoes in the game. True MF story.

If we are talking about logan memorial yall ain't nothing but a bandaide clinic and from these post you don't even care about the patients all you care about is your paycheck. When you became a doctor or nurse did you do it for the well being of othera or for the paycheck and the way you talk ita the paycheck. Yes some people complain about runny noses and stuff but you are there to help them no matter what is wrong with them. Some of us didn't go to school and get a degree like you so we don't know what's wrong with us. Thats what nurses and doctora are for and if you have a problem with helping other people then find another job.
