I am a new grad and have been orienting on a med/Surg unit now for about 3 weeks. I am up to 5 patients that I take care of with my perceptor backing me up. Now the problem is, everytime something goes wrong with one of my patients..I freak..I have no clue what to do! The most simple obvious things to do totally escape my thinking! I had a patient with chest pain..the Doc asked me what the patients vitals were...I didn't know..I didn't even think to take them!!! What the hell is wrong with me?? I did good in school..I am not a total moron...so why I not getting this together?? I feel totally incompetant and I am afraid I am going to hurt someone.
