Hi everyone, just started my PN/LN course and have a placement in a LTC facility, everything was going well until... One of the PSW asked for help with a lady on a lift, as soon as I entered the room she started yelling at me to get out. I quickly left the room and waited outside, I heard the PSW talk with the lady and explain that the lift required two people and that she could either have me (a nurse in training) or wait for one of the other PSW to become free. A few minutes later I was asked to come back in and we moved the lady with the lift, she was not happy about it.
As a male nurse should I expect to encounter this a lot or was I just unlucky for my first placement?
