What Patients do to make you mad! - page 5

I seldom loose it over my patients. One thing however gets me every time. When a patient, even more so if they are not old, has no teeth, and mumbles so you can not understand them even after... Read More

    Well can't speak for Leslie, but I'm almost sure she was just trying to get you all going.......... I guess I helped her along with that?

    Leslie is a kindred spirit and she knows it.
    are you the "lil' girl" that was an active member 2-3 yrs ago???
    if so, how've you been, sweetie??????? (big hug)

    if not, eat poop and bark at the moon.

    (hahahahaha- playin' w/ya.)

    seriously, i can assure you, i did not say that (glad he died) to get a reaction.
    if anything, i knew how politically uncorrect i was, and presumed i'd get flamed.
    but that's the way i felt.
    and i am so not the type of person to get one going.
    at all.

    and who am i a kindred spirit to/with?
    and what does that have to do w/anything?
    i'm sitting here, totally clueless (even more than baseline).

    again, if you the "lil' girl", it's awesome to see you.
    and if not:
    eat...

    hahahaha.

    be well.

    ugh what drives me crazy is a perfectly oriented pt yells " nurse , nurse " at the top of his lungs and when i can't get up there quick enough he yells louder, i explain i was down the hall and he could of used his call light and he says " i want service" " i want it now" as he tosses his OJ on the floor.... he yells all day and gets louder and louder if you don't get there fast enough... jerk... he drove me crazy for 3 days .. i won't take him next week...
    The sad thing is; I bet you don't work in peds...

    yes sweet pea it is me. it is good to hear your antics once again. so much has gone on in the past two years i just was not able to get online. first of all i had to have a triple bypass, changed jobs, lost my mom, my eldest moved out of house, 19 now can you believe it?? hope life has been treating you great girl, you are just the sweetest, that's why i just was "shocked" to see that from you, although you are known to print what you think aren't you. i knew i was takin a chance saying I'm shocked, but what the heck, i knew you would understand where i was coming from. and sweetie you are a kindred spirit/soul to all who meet you. love you sweetums. p.s. hope i didn't offend you as much as some of the others

    I get frustrated when a patient calls and can see you're ripping and running and they find 20 things for you to do knowing you are crazy busy. For example asking you to fix their pillow and then not liking the way you did it and being picky about it for 20 minutes.

    Oh my, LOOSE IT???, loose as in loose pants???? OR lose as in lose your cool???

    AND "I'm glad he died" ?? What in the world??

    Just say that I am truly shocked!
    I truly can't say I'm shocked. As an old AIDS nurse, I've felt exactly the same way about abusive, mean patients. Not all of us are Mother Theresa ... and in this business, it's best to be honest, at least with ourselves, about our feelings ... it's the only way to cope with them. Leslie has too much integrity to pretend to a phoney sweetness and light. Trying to force our emotional responses into some kind of PC box is perhaps the most damaging thing we can do to ourselves. The difference between the amateurs and the pros is that the true professional is able to keep negative responses from affecting the quality of her/his care.

    aaaaaaaaaaaaawwwwwwwwwwwwww, lil girl, i've missed you.
    and you've been through so darned much.
    i'm so sorry.

    nah, my claim to fame, has never been being "sweet".
    ugh.
    not me at all.
    but whatever...
    and of course i didn't mind you speaking your piece.
    that's the way it should be.

    hope to see lots more of you.
    truly, you've been missed.

    Oh Leslie you are sweet and you know it! How many times you helped me while I was in school, giving your advice. Okay, okay, I won't say you are sweet anymore, BUT darn it I think so! Glad to be back, got my check in the mail to Brian for premium membership (no plastic for this chick) so should be on any day now. Hugs to you.
