    I just got off the phone with the HH agency I work for as PDN. I was asked what shift did I want to work now that my FT is switching agency...?!?!. I had no idea my pt was switching, so I asked when is my last day and she says oh I thought you knew, don't show up again with that pt. The most frustrating part is my hubby, my income supports our family so it's upsetting when he starts on about I need to get a new case tonight and that I need to take whatever case they have available. He doesn't understand that the majority of the cases are pts who are complete assist, I'm 5'2" and 95 lbs I have a tough time repositioning patients who are way bigger than me. He doesn't understand it's not safe for the pt or myself and also he wants me taking high acuity cases. I've gone to the teach/vent training sessions and even after attending the ones work provides I don't feel confident in working those cases alone especially with a new peds trach pt. His thoughts are that I'm lazy and don't want to work those case. Ugh! I've gone to the "training" sessions and I just don't feel like I'll be prepared for an emergency. And I have covered a shift with an adult who had a trach and even though everything went well during the days I covered he was still too big for me to reposition on my own. I just wish hubby would be more supportive instead of just yelling that I need to find work now.

    Hi guys,

    Can anyone suggest the best shoes to wear during pregnancy. I work 12hr shifts and I am on my feet walking down the halls all day. I need something that'll help with my backaches and tiring feet. Can anyone suggest what shoes to wear that are comfy but give support?
