Apr 29, '02It's hard enough to go once during your shift. But I always make time. My problem is that there is this little bundle of joy in my belly that likes to use my bladder as a jumping ball. I usually end up going to the bathroom 4-5 a shift. It's hard to tell the pt or the family that they're going to have to wait a few minutes while I relieve myself, fortunately though, most are understanding. And if it's something that can't wait and I can't either, that's what my colleagues are for. We are all very good about helping each other out, no matter what the situation is.
Apr 29, '02Ok in my opinion, we nurses do not have a problem with time management, or put urinating low on the priority list. We simply tell ourselves, ok I have to go pee and then we get distracted and forget for that moment, until we have to pee so bad that we our eyes are turning yellow and we are secretly thinking of a good way to disguise the yellow stains on our WHITEwhen we lose it.
But at the same time, we have to be good to ourselves too. This was kind of a silly topic wasn't it? :chuckle
Apr 29, '02It's not a matter of time management. It's a matter of taking care of your own health. If you have to go, then ask someone to watch your patients and go. I agree, if I am in the middle of someone having chest pain or starting a drip or hanging blood, then I won't leave and I will have to hold it. But I make it a point to go at least three or four times a shift, I am not good to a patient if I am out with a UTI.
