I have been on my floor for a year, I promised myself I would give it that long no matter what. It's a hard floor med surg w/ oncology, head & neck / ENT and palliative beds- a good mix of med and surg pts. The variety has been great for learning but it's also very hard, and stressful to keep up with all these different diagnoses, treatments, so many comorbidities etc. I have friends who work on straight surg floors and it seems a lot easier b/c their pts are so similar hips, knees, backs and bariatrics. I float alot to these floors and I find I like the pt pop a lot better but there just isn't the same team atmosphere that we have. No one wants to help anyone, there's no joking around or chit chat, the whole team doesn't even show up for a rapid! Maybe this atmosphere comes from working on a higher acuity unit- like you better be ready to help out b/c tomorrow it's gonna be YOU running a rapid while you have to admits waiting. So basically I don't really like the patient population that I'm caring for but I love my coworkers. Is it worth it to make a change? What do you think?
