    Thank you so much for this thread. I'm a new nurse and my career has begun in a LTC. I've only been there for a month now but even so I have felt so overwhelmed with some of my residents, families, and even co-workers. There is those that I would love to tell excatly what I am thinking but bite my tongue, smile and go on.

    OMG! As I was reading this, I was trying to figure out which nurse you are at my former employment! LOL! This sounds exactly like what happens there! Thank you for putting into words! Well done!

    I very politely told the "singing" group that went around to nursing homes and prisons (captive audience!) how lovely it was that they would take time out of their busy lives to travel and sing hymns and gospel songs to shut-ins.......and I was gifted with TWO audio-cassettes of their groups efforts. The taping was nearly as bad as the singing. I tried to get out of the gift with the "thank-you-but-we're-not-allowed-to-accept-gifts " speech, but was informed that "God put it on her heart" to share them with me. Now, every so often SOMETHING puts it on my heart to share the music with a few well-chosen others, who howl in agony until I remove the tape from the cassette player!
