THAT'S SOUNDS SAFE, RIGHT. And when you do screw up, and you will, you're HUMAN, enjoy your day in court ALONE! Your company WONT be there to support you. Think twice about being an RN and if you still want it…think a third time…and a fourth! You can make the same money at other jobs that have 1/10 of the stress. Caring for sick human beings can be one of the hardest jobs in the world. Reply Sky Nguyen says: May 7, 2017 at 1:02 am Gain consent1. Ask them their name, DOB and allergy.
