Sounds like you are simply a human being...do your best to not be swayed by slogans and vague definitions of "recovery." Too much of that is passed around under the guise of some unique-life changing mumbo jumbo...if you truly do not want to ingest the "substances" that ruin your existence, then you won't...live your life and do what you must to regain who you must become...the "answer" is not found in any book...12 steps or platitude ridden "support" group...it's always been inside of you...
I like the reasons the OP cited...I'll add...for the scrubs! Yay!
Perhaps it is a vast field where all of the overpriced medical supplies are grown??? Otherwise why would I ever waste my valuable life energy dwelling on anything so tepid?
must be nice. I end up signing my people off- and I always come back to hell breaking loose. Bleeding, falling, not toileted. I dont trust anyone to watch my people. they just dont do it.And Im still liable for those pt's outcomes. Its too stressfull.Plus even if I found someone I could trust, they are now watching 12 people on an intermediate stepdown floor. Not good.
The "customer is always right" attitude.
No-- they're not always right.
Well...sadly since corporations now drive healthcare, and if we "must" use the standard customer service bull***...then the "customer" is NOT always right...simply put...in any "retail" scenario, there is...always has been and always will be horrible people...corporate America cares very little for actual customer satisfaction...only profit...ONLY! We simply gave it all away hence we have reaped what we have sewn...welcome to the oligarchy.
All human beings are different...TREND all vitals...
Reality check...modern medical care...24/7/365...perpetual...forever ahead and as far back as you'll ever remember...shift hours are guidelines...accept it...do The work...don't ever submit to management horse****...never work for free...and get that extra money!
Be VERY AWARE of the 12step-rehab industrial complex...read: "The Sober Truth" statistics do not lie...unfortunately our system is beyond broken...one look at the amount of money generated by the "pee in a cup" industry under the guise of "public safety" tells the tale. Do what you must to keep your career if that is what you truly desire and try not to be a victim of the propaganda....good luck
I don't mean to be rude, but the flu shot is really not even for your benefit. It is for the patients. We work in areas where people are incredibly compromised (at least most of us do at some point) and just like the required immunizations and boosters, they serve to prevent you from transmitting a disease to someone who it could seriously injure. And anyhow, what reservations could you possibly have to getting one? You are in the healthcare industry! Please don't tell me that you think vaccines are not safe, cause some kind of obscure disease, or have any negative effects for a healthy individual. You need to be advocating the same information to your patients and the people in your community as well. Don't spread the detrimental rumor that people shouldn't get vaccines.
