Officially we aren’t allowed to have any electronics outside of break room ever. But I work nights and I have to say that most of the nurses have their phones out 60-75% of time when not attending to pts. We have phones that the pts call us on and that we call each other on to help one another, and some of the older pts have reported us for being on our phones when in the room with them when we use these. It’s hilarious but I can understand their confusion although the hospital phones don’t look anything like a cell phone. Personally I don’t use mine except when on break I think it is not professional to be on your cell or face booking ect at nurses station, and am usually too busy anyway. But that’s my take on the issue hope it helps
