WHAT READERS ARE SAYING ON TWITTER, FACEBOOK, AND OUR BLOG
“One safeguard we had in our outpatient surgery unit: we created a 3’x3’ zone using red tape on the floor in front of the Pyxis. No one was allowed to talk with the nurse in the zone and vice versa.” “I think aggressive behavior in nurses is multifactorial. It might be helpful for human resources departments to provide resources and counseling referrals to help a nurse understand why he or she chooses aggression as a communication style.” “I apply the [principles of triage] to most aspects of my life, biting off small sections at a time, treating what is most important first, and learning to delegate what I can't handle to others.”
