hey all, hope all is well.
Just me with a little more anxiety fuming, wondering if anyone out there relates.
So the topic on my mind this time:
Outside of nursing--personalitywise, i generally keep to myself. but i make sure that whenever approached im as friendly and as helpful as possible--sometimes it scares people because they tell me im not at all how they imagined (i have a severe case of angry-face)
but because i keep to myself so much, im really not used to seeking out people to assist--that is, im really bad at asking if anyone needs help or needs anything to feel extra comfortable. i feel like this will (if it hasn't already) sunk into my nursing style.
I try to be as helpful as possible, i'm always asking "do you need anything else" or "is there anything else i can do for you", because in all honesty, im really bad at anticipating the possible needs of others. I'm kind of bad at anticipating altogether, i'm more of a reflexive/reactive thinker. So when something goes wrong, i can handle it at a moments notice, but preventative measures aren't really my forte.
I guess by definition this would make me "inconsiderate" because im really bad at "considering" the needs of others, even though im more than happy and willing to oblige.
Does anyone else feel like they could use a crashcourse on crossing T's and dotting I's when it comes to patient comfort ?
Risk for inconsiderate one related to mean resting face as manifested by angry frown during clinical.
