Today I went on a clinical rotation to a PEDS floor that I have never been to before. I had heard stories about the nurse there who was absolutley nasty to children but I HAD NO IDEA! She called all the children brats, looked at a baby and said "Your F$%^&", every other word she used was a curse word, and when an alarm would go off she would say "Oh Jesus Christ what the #*$(@ now!."
I felt like a deer caught in headlights. Then she tells me and another student " Hey watch the floor I gotta run down and talk to the police about my kid for a couple minutes." When she gave meds she stuck the needle cap in her mouth to pull it off and then left the med bottle sitting on a low counter on the PEDS floor! My teacher I think got her written up before for her bad language in front of students. I never expected to see anyone who was this burnt out, not to mention on a peds floor!
