    Some of our patients are entitled/ have an attitude but I truly believe most are just scared, in pain and preoccupied.I can't tell you how much we appreciate you making a special effort to give us your kind words. We don't hear them often and don't really expect to, but when someone lets us know our efforts made a difference to them, we get that extra boost that helps us go in and start our shift knowing just why we are there.

    Also look into whether you need to continue to work full time at your non-nursing job to become vested. You may need a minimum number of hours in each year you work in addition to remaining there for a specific length of time so if you have already accumulated the hours for this last year they may let you work a reduced number of hours thru the 5 year mark. Ideally when you start a nursing position you will be able to concentrate exclusively on that, but walking away from being vested in a retirement plan a few months short of the time requirement should not be taken lightly with the financial shortfalls many retirees experience based on fluctuations in the economy. If the position you are applying for doesn't have a hard-wired starting date (like an internship program) and it's getting to be within 6-8 weeks of your vesting date, you could legitimately state that you are looking to start in October. Lastly, if your current position will let you work reduced hours and schedule them around your nursing position, it may may be possible to have both overlap for a short without overwhelming you.

    Knowing that her team was right on top of the situation and did everything possible is a great comfort to family/ friends.

    The denial mind set that goes hand in hand with addiction-of any sort. A patient lying to my face about when they last drank/ used drugs or what they really were eating the last few days doesn't hurt me but giving HCP's inaccurate info could delay or prevent appropriate treatment and ultimately cost the patient their life. This kind of stuff really pushes my buttons. I just wanna say "you're wasting my time, the doctor's and your own-why even bother?"

    Conspiracy theorists don't care about science, factual data, or the sad truth that before the advent of vaccines, millions upon millions of people died from infectious disease.
    Scary!

    I so try to counteract the terror families feel at the term "hospice" and to emphasize that it is a different type of care that is at present more appropriate for their loved one and NOT a timetable for counting down their last days. Attitudes are changing but it's a slow process.
