    I don't think you're crazy. I would hate to work in the OR precisely because I can't talk to my patients. They are the best part of my day.

    i am sure you are hearing all of that from your coworkers, friends, etc. i understand the need to change and do something different. good luck in your new endeavors!

    Best luck to you. I worked 3 years in a cardiac recovery unit and then went back to cardiac telemetry. Yes, my patients are more awake but because I care for 3-5 at a time, I don't get much time to interact with them; frequent interruptions with phone calls and such.

    And then there are the visitors to deal with...
