    I accidentally sent a sample of saline to the lab for a drug screen

    I had pulled the sample from the wrong port of a foley, placed in a very active and combative old lady... gaaaaah!

    Later, when I found my glorious old gal waving her deflated tubing around like a flag of mockery, I doubled over laughing at my stupidity... because I really wanted to cry.

    No wonder I only got a perfect 10cc's...

    I called the lab to tell them to not bother, but before I could tell them it was a bad sample, they happily declared it negative

    "Are you having a female discharge today?"

    Well, I know I'm a weirdo because I loved being a CNA... being a nurse... not so much.

    The responsibilities are way different. Just because you dislike being a CNA doesn't mean you'll dislike being a nurse.

    This thread makes me so mad!

    I'm just angered by these facilities. I'm sure it probably markets itself with photographs of charming, smiling, high-functioning elderly people being hugged by their charming, smiling, completely satisfied daughters. They probably boast about how each and every resident is unique with a story and how they strive to take that into consideration to provide the best gosh-darn care ever!!!

    But they don't. They don't care what anybody's story is or what their unique needs are. They only care about filling the beds. Safety and care be damned.

    So now you have Cmtz108 coming in there, green as peas, trying to figure out what the hell she is supposed to do. She is so new that it probably didn't strike her as funny that she was responsible for 15 moderate to severe dementia patients alone. Anybody who know their dementia patients knows that this is asking for trouble. Toileting issues aside, but what about the behavioral issues that bound to happen sooner or later? Where's Cmtz108's help then?

    Cmtz108, I'm very curious... have you reported your concerns? What do you plan to do?
