Its a chronic problem for me. Yesterday a guy that works for the DME company that our Hospice has a contract with complained about me.
He said that I order stuff when the patient is too sick to use it. Well, when I order it I have no crystal ball to see how fast of a decline they are going to have! At the time, when I order it they need it!! A couple of weeks ago, we admitted a patient and had to exchange out all the equipment. At the time vital signs were all normal, but he died 4 hours later. There is no possible way anyone could have guessed he'd go that quick.
And he was angry because I said the weight was over 250 lbs. and the patient was 300.
I feel beyond discouraged and frustrated. I want to quit my job really really badly right now.
