worst experience so far, there was this pt who had an elective surgery. we have a policy of no over night visitors unless the pt is confused, blind, deaf, etc and can benefit
from the person staying. this pt was none of the above just very demanding and rude.:angryfire she wanted her "friend" to stay. the friend had been badgering and bad mouthing the staff all night.
so about 10 pm way after visiting hours were over we kindly suggested the visitor go home. they both went nuts the patient and visitor. long story short it ended with the patient telling me what a horrible nurse i was, that i was in the wrong profession etc etc. i took it so personally.
i have worked so hard to be where i am and for someone to say that sucked so bad. i am sure there are worse things that could have happened to me but that was just the worst for me
best was this lovely mrdd pt that i had taken care of for a few days. she hugged me and told me that i had worked so hard for her and that she loved me. that was the best.:redpinkhe she made me all teary eyed.:heartbeat
