Nurses are amazing (and I not just saying that because I related to one). No matter how achy their feet or full their bladders, they take care of their patients something fierce. They often the providers that we interact with the most, both as patients and visitors, which means they on the front lines every time one of us does something that can put a damper on a patient care irritate the heck out of hospital staff. (Heal your whole body with Rodale 12 day liver detox for total body health.) Here are 10 pesky habits that nurses want us all to break, stat. Waiting for a nurse to answer your call bell can sometimes be a nerve wracking experience (especially if you not allowed to leave your bed without assistance). It not that they want to leave you hanging, it that patient needs have to be handled in order of urgency. "Nurses are educated to prioritize care based on the patient condition, scheduled procedures, or treatments," says Sarah Gilbert, PhD, an assistant professor at Radford University School of Nursing in Virginia. If there a delay, it likely because there an emergency with another patient that takes precedence.

If a patient (or family) feels bombarded by medical jargon or doesn understand how the information specifically impacts the patient, your nurse is your best advocate. "We want patients to talk to us about questions they may have for their doctors," says Patricia M. Burke, PhD, an associate professor of nursing at Touro College School of Health Sciences in New York. "As the nurse, we can act as of medical jargon to make sure they understand what going on." (Here are oakley glasses cleaning kit 7 questions doctors really wish you would ask them.) Today, most hospital systems have a coded number that given to family members so they can receive updates on a loved one. "No matter how much you beg or plead, you won get any information over the phone unless you have that coded number," says Gilbert. Nurses are bound to this by law and can be fired if they found in violation. For maximum efficiency, it best to appoint one family member as the contact person the nurse has to go back and explain the entire course of the hospital stay up to that point. It also best to call at the midway point of the nurse shift (for most nurses, the ideal times would be 10 AM/PM or 3:00 AM/PM, says Gilbert). This gives the nurse ample time to complete an assessment and administer meds, so the information you receive is as up to date as possible, she explains. MORE: 22 Craziest Health Rumors "Many patients overlook certain symptoms or problems that have a direct bearing on the medications, treatments, or care that planned specifically for each patient," says Gilbert. "Often, these omissions aren intentional patient just doesn consider certain details to be important." If it embarrassment that holding you back from fessing up, take heart: There nothing you can say to a nurse that they haven heard before. It also essential that you totally honest about the medications you take, legal and illegal. "During treatment, there always the potential for interactions, overmedication, undermedication, or adverse effects if we don know what the patient has taken," says Gilbert. Nurses don mind doing things for their patients: It a big part of their job description, oakley glasses camo says Gilbert. But it also their job to ensure that patients heal at an optimum pace. "If you can are allowed to things on your own, you should," says Gilbert. "Your healing will progress more quickly, and you be able to be discharged sooner." The favors that grind a nurse gears most involve being asked to do favors for visitors (such as grabbing them something to eat or drink), or being interrupted when they with another patient or their family. "If you need something immediately, you can always ask someone at the nurses station for help," says Gilbert. When your nurse is in the middle of discharging you (or a family member) and your cell phone rings, taking the call might seem like no biggie in reality, not only can this compromise the retention of important information, but you also delaying the care of other patients that your nurse needs to tend to, says Missouri based registered nurse Nancy Beck. "The thing I appreciate most is when the person doesn answer the call until discharge is complete, or they very quickly tell the person that they call them back," she says.
