I think it is a tough spot to be in. It looks like a very long line of mistakes were made before this ended with you. While it would have been great to have caught this, it is what it is. The patient is ok, life goes on, and just deal with the peer review.
I prefer programs that reward individuals for accomplishments. Our hospital has a comment card project where patients and employees can fill out thank you type cards for each other. These are then used during reviews and in portfolios to show positive outcomes. I carry a copy of each one I Have received over the years in my binder, and read them frequently to remind myself that what I do is important.
I am not even practicing right now and I keep my current. $120 a year is worth it for me. While I loved my employer, I never wanted to be in a position where they might push something off on me, so I wanted to be protected. I carry mine through NSO.
My husband can totally relate to the dinner out with friends scenarios!
I am an HSP as well as my husband. I have the majority of the books to read during my "baby break" starting after next week, including The Highly Sensitive Child since I am pretty sure I am growing another HSP.
I love nursing. I find that keeping a tight handle on my organization helps cope with being overwhelmed, plus I am a strong multi-tasker. I notice that when things get too loud, or a particular nurse gets a little crazy, I do tend to get internally frustrated at times (mostly since I went to day shift, but I love it anyway!).
I have also noticed I build strong patient relationships quickly because I notice nuances in their behavior and can incorporate them into my care (i.e. anxiousness).
I know this thread is older, but it is still very interesting.
Good evening Nurses
Question for you: What has been your most challenging nursing experience/situation, and how did you handle it?
As an ADN prepared nurse I have no issue with others having BSN on their badge. Now as far as those nurses having better patient outcomes than me well...I will just bite my tongue
