Is that okay, Hun?And a nurse giggled and then blurted out:
Oh I hate when patient's call me "Honey!" "Sugar" is fine, but "Honey?" Never!And so the other names like "Nutrasweet" were briefly entertained, as was "Candy." The chuckles continued.
After a lengthy discussion, there appeared to be a general consensus amongst the nurses and techs in our lab that "Sugar" was okay.
Just never, ever call a nurse "Honey."
Consider yourself warned.
Does that include my wife? (she's a nurse).
But it's OK to call your EP guy "Hun"?
I had an ex friend say that, and I quote, "Nurses are people that are not smart enough to go to medical school". I think that phrase is one that should not be told to nurses, especially when we are the ones who start your IVs (could always use a bigger needle if you piss me off) and bring your medications!
