Our facility forbids electronic devices except in break area and out of sight of patients and only on your own break time. Regardless of this policy I see people with phones, laptop and tablets all the time at any given nursing station. I have seen both sides of this and am kinda on the fence. If everyone is good, patients are resting, floor is clean, stocked and no one needs help I say hey, hallelujah! Read a book! Check your email! BUT if you have a coworker drowning, patients calling, phone ringing, ect. get up and HELP one another! Its real easy, do unto others!
