I agree, but even more so than the annoyance, it can be dangerous. Did you hear Joint Commission’s new concern about alarm fatigue?
My biggest pet peeve when I’m nursing is patients who ask for everything one at a time. Just as I’m bringing back a pitcher of water, they remember they would like another pillow… Then a note pad… Then a carton of milk. It probably wouldn’t frustrate me as much if they weren’t always in one of the last rooms down the hall or if i wasn’t already busy with my other patients too! Haha, but tis part of being a nurse and making our patients comfortable.
