Literally having these babies' lives in my hands (NICU). Being able to recognize subtle cues to when they're getting sick because they can go from seemingly healthy to deceased in a matter of hours - I saw it for the first time a couple of weeks ago. Being new. Being afraid of miscalculating something and giving too much medication. Having different people tell you conflicting information and not knowing what's right. Getting an ADMISSION, ugh! Parents asking questions. Hourly charting. Filling out stupid forms. Forgetting to fill out stupid forms and then getting called about it. Not knowing which provider is taking care of my patient because there is no clear system. No time to exercise.
