Excellent example of going bad. I have to add that for kids, I like the (admittedly, less professional) term "crapping out". It's such a good description of what kids do. They compensate, and compensate, and compensate...and look good, look good, look good...then they crap out. Fast and furious.
- Sep 26, '11 by CrunchRNYes Roy - good memory!
- Sep 26, '11 by LunahRNI read "House of God," did they actually make it a movie? I hope not! LOL
- Oct 1, '11 by ertrek84I have been working in the ER for 3 months so far. I have learned become nice with the paramedics, less likely to gladly bring you trolls and also to learn how to work with certain doctors. I got told off by a doctor because I asked if he was going to write the admit orders for a pt we were admitting. He had told me and the charge nurse he was admitting the pt 2 hours ago, waiting room was full and we actually had a bed upstairs, just needed orders to send him up. Have learned now to make my questions seem like I am dumb and that he is the smart one so things get done and that it makes him feel like its his idea.

Hahaha that's ok, I know my name isn't very clear on that. I guess if I really cared about people knowing I was male, I'd have named myself RNhasapenis or ERmanlyb*lls or something. Thanks to you all for the replies, btw.
- Oct 26, '12 by LearningByMistakesAs a 28 year Paramedic I'll offer you the same advice I offer Paramedic students and new Paramedics,
#1 - In an emergency, FIRST, check your own pulse.
#2 - YOU did NOT create the emergency (at least most of the time, LOL!).
