10 Things You Should Stop Complaining About in Nursing

Adam Starr | NursingLink


Hospitals are interested in creating a productive work environment and a safe place for patient care, not a snuggly nap room or a frozen icebox. Consequently, your employer will set the thermostat within a (hopefully humane) range that encourages these ideals. No matter where you work, somebody is going to be too cold and somebody else is going to be too hot. However, you’re not in kindergarten- whining about the temperature is futile. If you are cold, wear long-sleeved tops under your scrubs. If you are still cold then bring a personal space heater. If you are hot, wear layers that you can take off. If you are still hot then bring a fan. It’s easy!
