Help I hate my job now.. we went 24 hour open, my patients get no rest, we have no control people walking in on procedures in process and they think they own the place.. my husband was in as a patient a few weeks ago and from the patient standpoint he hated it too. said peoples cells were ringing all night and they were coming and going he couldn't sleep at all... what ever person came up with this is nutz... all we think about is making the family happy what about the patient and the staff.. we deserve to have some piece. No other job is like this... patient satisfaction scores... choose our hospital people don't come here because they want to.. they have to.. and dont get me wrong we treat our patients top notch.. but I am sick of catering to the family when my patient in the next room is crashing.. I was in a code not to long ago and the family of my other patient actually came to the room and asked me if I could pull up their family in bed.. our hospital didnt change the procedures we just push the button and let in everyone.
When I was in the hospital about 2 years ago i was having some heart issues and was in the telemetry unit/CCU step down and they had 24 hour visiting and my boyfriend could sleep over. I actually enjoyed it because I was in the hospital for a week and I was away from all other family and it was scary being the patient. But he was good when it came to test and doctor rounds he ask me if I wanted him to step out. But it can be a comfort to the patient.
it could also help that my boyfriend is a cop and was in uniform hahaha
