Nov 21, '02Hey Dee, I just had to comment on relatives from hell. Just a student starting the second year in the ADN and I learned about being a gofer. I only had two patients, but as students we do total patient care. Well, this woman's daughter was just crazy with her demands like getting a straw off of the bedside table and put it in her cup. Hello!!!! The daughter can move her arm a whole 6 inches to accomplish this. Then had to be called because her mom's pillow needed to be slightly readjusted. Finally had to set some limits as to what I could do to make the mother happy and so that I could give my other patient appropriate care. Nearly drove me crazy today, I tell ya.
Hang in there, Dee. Hopefully next week will go more smoothly for you.
