And as for the Dear Abby letter, I was disgusted. How many times have we had passed on in report that 'the family is looking for a lawsuit', and yet we're supposed to go into the room like nothing is wrong. How would those ppl like to go to work and have everything they say and do written down to be reported to their superiors? And how can they think that the added stress will improve our level of care? I say, pillow therapy all around!! (Including Dear Abby for encouraging this behavior.)

That you can endure a day like this and then sit down and put it into words so concisely and with such humor is deserving of Pulitzer Prizes. You can cry on my shoulder anytime!!

I WONDER HOW WE DO IT TOO, BUT WE JUST DO IT! SOMETIMES I JUST WISH THE FAMILY'S WOULD GET A d*** CLUE!! THE PT'S AND ANY SITUATION THEY HAVE IS NEVER A PROBLEM WITH ME, ITS THE FAMILY'S, OH AND THE CHARTING AFTERWARDS!! IF I COULD GET RID OF THE FAMILY'S AND THE CHARTING, MY JOB WOULD BE HEAVEN!! HANG IN THERE, WE ALL NEED YOU!!
