Amen! Could not have said it better.
Been doing this for almost nine years. Used to love bedside nursing and was certain that I would never leave...this is what I have always wanted to do. Now, however, I often wake up in the morning and want to cry when I have to go to work...because of many of the things you site in your post. Looking to get out of bedside nursing...kind of breaks my heart.
Actually why I want to get out of bedside nursing. Seems that I spending more time dealing with patient issues and family dynamics. Don't mind it. But yesterday spent most of my time dealing with this and almost missed a critical lab result. Too much is being placed on the bedside nurse.
Wow. Sounds like my dream hospital.
The part that makes me angry is that the mother and father made excuses...THAT is what I believe has made everyone angry. They don't need to apologize, they didn't do it. But, they showed no compassion for the victim....it was all about them and their son. I love my son to the ends of the earth...but I he raped someone, I would not condone his actions.
Agree. Started as a BSN. Was in my junior year and had never even given a shot. I started to freak out, because I knew clinical skills are also important....Dropped out of BSN and went to another college for my ADN. Graduated and after 5 years went for my bsn. To be honest, the bsn taught me almost nothing! My seven years of experience taught me the most.
He will not serve the 6 months, only three. Also, it will be in a segregated unit to protect him from harm. He will never meet BUBBA, and he will probably do it again...registered sex offender or not.
I just completed a twelve hour shift (7a-7p)...well actually 0700 to 2145...almost 15 hours with no lunch and two five minute breaks. I slept for 10 hours afterward and woke up tired, sore, and depressed. Why is it okay for nurses (who hold lives in our hands) to be subjected to this? This is not a profession...it is glorified slavery. Personally, I would not want a doctor or nurse taking care of me who did not have a break or some food or water in a reasonable amount of time.
I totally agree. But I am spending the majority of my time doing this. Meanwhile, back at the ranch, my patient was going into respiratory failure, while I was getting patients and their families coffee.
