At the general hospital where I once worked, there was a ward sister(supervisor) who was as lazy as jack **** and seemed always to be in a daze. One day when the surgeon was making rounds, he questioned her about a patient receiving an enema which he had ordered the day before. She replied, " yes doctor, I gave it to him orally." The doctor looked at her, shaked his head and said, "You need to be in the Guinness Book of World Records."
I know of a patient who escaped from a mental hospital, was going down the road in a wheelchair clothed in a hospital gown. He went to a very expensive car dealer, and purchased an AUDI.
It's such a nusiance when this happens, and it happens way too often.
Dain It's such a nuisance when this happens.
Wal Just think: It makes me look flat instead of fat and for that I'm thankful.
`My niece has her BSN, in a home care agency right now, but is considering giving up nursing, even though she has been a nurse for only about 3 years, so I wrote to her and suggested she further her education to become a Nurse Practitioner. That way she would be her own boss. She thanked me and is looking into it.
Concerning another event, our local medical center just awarded the people who belong to the union a new 3 year contract because way too many were being overworked and understaffed, and were considering striking.
I, as a nurse inpatient in the past, in this same medical center, witnessed a Physician who has just performed a cardiac catheterization on me and found blockage in two coronary arteries; one being too difficult for the local Cardiologists to perform, entered my room and and suggested I be transferred to a trauma facility. When he saw that the nurses had hooked me up to an clotting IV drip, he became furious, and began ranting to me about how the IV should not have been started. I felt like I was put right in the middle. I glanced over at the nurses' desk where I saw every nurse who was there looking down working at charting. I felt so bad for them. Most of them work so hard, and are so kind and caring for their patients.
