I've been an RN for almost a year now, I can't believe it!!!
I work in a long term-acute hospital with ventilator patients. I lost so many patients in one year, and I am getting depressed.
SInce they are terminally ill its hard to not loose them. One after the other, you take care of them for months sometimes, you know the families so well and when they go I cannot help to go home and cry. I am a pretty emotional person, but I was wandering if a lot of you guys cry for your patients too. I mean we are still human right??
Thanks for listening
