ya got dem sticky fingers
We were the last ER and last department in all the hospitals to get the training. They installed the nifty barcode readers a month ago. They kind of look like a laser gun. When you push a button on it a red light comes on, there is a red cross that appears that you are supposed to put in the middle of the scan dealybob on the wristband and medication.
Well it seems that the local ghetto geniuses who frequent our ER, decided to see what the hell this new fangled thing is. Oh cool its like a laser gun. I can put a red cross in the middle of your forehead!! So what did they do? They took four of them before we even started the whole barcoding thing. $500 a pop.
The genuises who come up with these fancy new doodads don't get that we are in a ghetto where a lot of people have sticky fingers. They take things that are worthless to them, but take them nonetheless.
Another day in paradise.
