    I agree with everyone else, but the absolute worst for me is when the hospital is full and have to hold pts in the ER when they have a ton of floor orders. There's a reason I'm not a floor nurse so I hate having holders, especially 2-4 at a time.

    the best part is the dynamic of the ER, no 2 days are the same-every shift is a learning opportunity.

    the worst part are the unappreciative pt's, usually drunk or there for ridiculous primary care.
