I don't have the patience for it, and it just doesn't interest me. I know someone has to do it; it's not just me. To me, it's like trying to push a rock up a steep hill, only to have it roll back down. It sort of gags me to have to crush meds and put them in applesauce for an adult; I don't know why. I wouldn't want to have to give meds to that many people; help in the dining room; do all that documentation; deal with falls every day, etc.
To me it's on par with working OB. I wouldn't want to do that, either.
Find another job; they may not get you for this, but they will find something else.
It's been established many years ago that I rely on "likes" as validation of my worth as a valued member of the Allnurses.com community. As such, whenever I get a "like" notification, I go to my dashboard to see who liked what post (yeah, I told you that I have self-esteem issues).
A curious thing I've noticed is that some members will just go through and "like" every post that's on a thread they're reading. I wonder why. Are they just so enthusiastic about the subject matter that they're just all "Hell YEAH!!" to every post?
Alternatively, I will sometimes notice that a particular member will have "liked" several of my posts in several different threads on different boards within a short period of time, and I'll think, "Is Davey Do (or you know, whoever) stalking me?"
So what are you patterns and criteria for "liking" someone else's posts?
You may not agree with her, but I do. Per the Bible we are to "go out into the world and preach the gospel to all nations. " That doesn't mean hammer down someone's throat, but it's essentially what we're called to do. It saddens me when I hear a fellow Christian state: " I don't mention God at work. I just keep it to myself. " Even if the CNA says: "God loves you, it shouldn't be a huge problem, especially if patients request it.
Articles like this scare me. I'm afraid the day may come when I'll just be given bullets to bite for my chronic pain from cancer.
