I was just wondering how other ERs triage. We are having a little conflict at work.....so how does everyones triage process work? What determines which patient is seen first? I will fill in the details later....just want to see how it works in other places. Thanks!
Wow! This makes me sick....what a sad shape our world is in.
I went from the ER to OPS/PACU . It was a breeze. no stress, weekends or holidays. I absolutely hated it, and was bored out of my mind. I am now back in the stressful, fast paced crazy environment I love..ER, and I will never leave again!
My daughter was just saying something along these lines today, and like you feeling guilty! I told her never stay in a job or profession that makes you miserable.....if you have an opportunity do something different. As for me I cannot see myself doing anything other than Emergency Nursing.....I love it!
About a year ago I left the ER, and went to out patient surgery/PACU. The schedule was great, the people I worked with were great.It was a nice easy job, and I was miserable!! I am now back in the ER, and happy as a pig in mud!
ESTP.....ER and I love it!
At my hospital it can only be used for re-certification, and first timers still have to do the class. I did like a lot of you..I was really looking for drugs that I wanted to give, and had no option! It has a few gliches, but I did enjoy it, and I learn much better this way! We also do BLS, and PALS like this too.
I laughed out loud when I read your post!!! I could just picture the whole thing! I was just in the ER (not mine) this weekend with a family member, and I warned my hubby....do not mention that I am a NURSE!!!! They did a really good job taking care of my family member and I tried to keep my mouth shut except for please, and thank you!
I will be 56 in a few days. My hubby and I are thinking somewhere between 59 1/2 - 62. We have tried to invest & plan....and will have no debt. I don't know if I will be ready to stop working or not.....and I worry we won't have enough money. Hubby on the other hand says we will be fine!
"i witnessed a nursing supervisor physically abuse a patient. while i have seen abuse before, this rose to a level at which i think the supervisor should face charges in court for assault. it was that bad. that supervisor's judgment is atrocious".
this to me says it all...i don't care if i had been an employee for 16 years, or 6 weeks....i would report to any and all that i could report to, and i would have called the police to boot!. i hope you do what you need to so that this piece of crap can never hurt anyone else again. i would also take one of the other job offers asap.
I guess that different with each person....for me it was the right thing to do. I learned so much, and would do it the same way again. I did not stay in MS, but what I learned has served me well.
Asics, Nike, Crocs. I have a lot of shoes, and switch every day usually.
I agree if you are miserable its time to move on. It is not fair to you or your patients. I wish you much luck, and hope you find a position that makes you happy. Kinda like the saying....If you love your job...you'll never work a day in your life!
No lay offs, but a lot of low census. We have had one wing closed for a couple of weeks. In staff meetings we are urged to come up with money saving ideas, and told we are seriously in the red. On the other hand we have a huge addition currently under way...:uhoh21:
With so many people out of work....that will work....why tolerate lazy from anyone? This is a pet peeve of mine, and I have no tolerance for lazy people regardless of their title.
