Nurse05, I hear ya ...
I had my first *difficult* patient earlier this semester. There was nothing, and I mean nothing
I could do that was good enough for her. She was in major denial about her condition and the treatment needed. At one point she actually pushed my hand away from her. A very, very long day. Oh, and after about 4 hours, she suddenly said to me, "I was an LPN, so don't think I don't know what a bad job you're doing." <sigh> A very, very long day.
But she didn't treat anyone else, including the MDs, any better, so it wasn't just me. She was still on the unit the following week - I went to get my assignment for the next day and when I came around the corner of the hallway the first thing I heard was her voice, still *****ing and moaning. Thankfully, I wasn't assigned to her again!
The point is ... there will be patients, and days like this, but a lot of better experiences that will make up for it. Hang in there!
