Next week is National Nurses Week. Now I hope you’re prepared… Many of you will see some horrendous “gifts” given by hospitals to the nursing staff. To preempt these Nurses Week gift atrocities, here is a list of gifts you really should never give to a nurse on Nurses Week… actually, ever:
1 – An engraved bed pan
2 – Breath mints packaged in cute little specimen cups
3 – An ink stamper that reads: “Verbal order. Repeated and read back.”
4 – A coffee mug for the nurse’s station that reads: “JCAHO Schmayko”
5 – A coupon for free biohazzard tattoos
6 – The unveiling of yet another form for nurses to fill out “to make things easier”
7 – Buttons that read: “Doctor’s Little Helper”
Post some real-life ridiculous gifts you’ve seen in the comments below.
Watch for awesome freebies coming on Monday, May 4th for you to give away to your nursing friends and colleagues… just to say thanks during Nurses Week.
