I'm a brand new nurse in my 5th week with my preceptor. I love what I do so far. Every day after work I go home and reflect upon the events of the day and the lessons that they've taught me. I just have to vent because my head was spinning today at how incredibly rude these other professionals were to me today.
Patients with kind and positive attitudes are a breath of fresh air when it seems like everything is working to delay their care. From the doctor who writes confusing orders and passes the buck, that gets passed again and again, to the EXTREMELY rude secretary (or whoever it was who answered the phone) at the physician's office who I was trying to contact to clarify the orders. To the dialysis nurse who had to finish her personal call first before arguing with me about the orders in front of the patient. Really? Why do you work in healthcare? I'm not the one who's bad at my job, I'm just trying to do it the best I can.
That is all.
