We recently got an influx of new nurses at work, and I'm awful with names, so I've been struggling to keep it all straight. I pride myself in knowing everyone's names, so I hate it when I have to ask for something from a nurse whose name I don't know.
Anyway, yesterday I was asking a nurse a question during a meeting, and I couldn't remember her name. I checked her badge, but her badge was flipped over so I couldn't read it.
Then I looked around the room and discovered that with only a couple of exceptions, every single person in the room had their badge flipped over so you couldn't read their name. (You'd think just by chance, half would be correct.)
There's something about that which really bothers me. Badges are required at work for a reason. Whatever that reason is, I'm sure 80% of badges being flipped the wrong way is not in the spirit of the reason.
