NursingLink staff members talked to health care professionals, one another and (of course!) nurses to find out what phrases or questions were most irritating. Ever felt like strangling someone with your stethoscope? Then you probably heard one of these 10 things.

    I have to agree with this all the way. You cannot be saying this to nurses at all. I cannot understand why people would be doing this. They need to be controlled. glasses
