Can you hate someone after 3 days? - page 3

I can be nice, and I have been, for the last three days, the epitome of kindness. You can be rude, crabby, ungrateful, passive-aggressive; You can barrage me with questions, while I am trying... Read More

    You know the kind of people who are all ready and willing to talk about their stories, their amazing accounts of their own amazing-ness, and just general "I love myself" stuff. I just find that I need proof, and lots of it, before a story can be credible.
    Yeah, they're a lot like the kind of people who are all ready and willing to show their cynicism about other's stories, their amazing accounts of their own amazing-ness at being smarter than us gullible fools, and just general "I love telling people they've obviously been had."

    ETA: Oops, sorry. Forgot to say: Peace sistah!

    I'm not usually a big wiki fan but there are time the information is crediable for informational purposes. I was working in Chicago when Speck died and I know my friend was working that night and she called me. She did grauate from the nursing school where this happened and was there when this occured. Can I prove it per se....no.

    It's just a story to give an example that you can hate a patient even if they are in your care.

    Do I need to be believed? No. It's all good.

    oooooh, JAB JAB! Well someone's gotta point it out. You can't believe everything you hear and read. Really, people need to stop being so sensitive. This is a website, on the internet, where people can post anything. (well, nearly, before moderators interfere with the natural movement of posts/threads.)

    And there are a lot of "gullible fools." You say cynicism, I say realism. It's all on how open-minded you are to the fact that reality is not all peaches and cream. I'm not saying anyone "has been had," but one should be aware that the possibility does exist. Why ignore the obvious? Why put your head in the sand? Stop trying to berate one who wants to enlighten.

    SIgned,

    Peace, the amazingly enlightened one.

    Why is Esme's story hard to believe?
    I tend to be a pretty skeptical person myself, but I also know truth can be stranger than fiction.

    I have --and know others who have-- many stories that are bizarre and absolutely frightening.

    Considering Speck committed his crimes in Chicago and stayed in the area (Joliet Prison) it is not outside the realm of possibility that he would, at some point, be under the care of a nurse who knew his victims.

    Somebody has to know these people.
    This stuff really happened and is not made up for kicks.

    The only patient I ever came close to hating was a child molester.
    Very hard to be non-judgmental.

    I have had exasperating patients, but I usually vent about them in the med room to my bestie at work and then get over it, or think to myself when I see the assignment "I don't want this patient again..."

    No one as bad as what you've described though. Sheesh! I've had some demanding ones, but the ones who really get on my nerves are people who are "vomiting" when what they are really doing is spitting into a bucket. People who are supposed to be discharged, and then are overcome with "nausea and vomiting". They can scarf down Popsicles no problem, but usually as soon as they get the discharge instructions, the whole family charges in and then it's retch, retch, spit in a bucket. I find it very manipulative. I might be young, but I can tell the difference between real vomit, dry heaving, legit nausea, and then spitting into an emesis basin for the benefit and sympathy of family members.

    I recently had a post-op patient who was all set for discharge - stable vitals, stable labs, pain well controlled with PO meds, all PT goals met, etc - and then pitched a fit when it came time to be discharged, saying that they were and had been in intractable, unbearable pain, despite all documented evidence to the contrary. They let the patient stay another night, because of a tantrum. And the best part? They wouldn't accept IV pain med. Or any pain med, after they won that round. Gotta keep those patient satisfaction scores up! *shaking my head*

    Ok... rant over

    This is my main concern... will I be able to remain professional with a molester or abuser? I guess time will tell, huh?

    YOu would be surprised what you can do for your profession and to remain professional. Usually when a prisoner in admitted to a hospital outside the prison you do not know what they have been incarcerated for so it makes it better......unless they are high profile. You can always ask to be excused from the patients care if you can't be objective......everyone will understand.
