Had a woman who was 101. She rung her bell but then just looked at us. Eventually she said "Am I dead yet?".
I call the VA the VA Spa. Even though the ICU I work in isn't a spa a lot of the time. It is what it is. The scooters some of them ride-VA Harleys. Change is slow but it does happen. Even though I'm an older nurse, I've only been in the system for 10 years after working in the private sector. Each VA has it's own personality. It took me a while to get accustomed to how things work. I love working with the vets. They are tough! I especially love the WW 2 guys.
I transferred from one VA to another one 400 miles away. Because it is more expensive to live where I am now, they have locality pay. This adjusts your income if you move to an area where it costs more to live. I make more money because it costs more to live in this area.
