....I'm caring for. She's approx 400lbs, and since I'm in the prn pool, naturally I am assigned to her for the night. So as usual, I dive right in and bathing her, cleaning her room. I normally don't mind as long as there's some help to turn her. Well, I'm finished with her front, and I come out to request help in turning. We need about 4 people to turn this woman as she is too weak to help.
Well, one nurse says, "I've taken care of her 4 days last week and my back hurts" She turns her back to me and I just stood there with my mouth open. Luckily a few of the staff took pity on me and came to my rescue.
I have said nothing to her, and I've only worked with her here once before and got the same attitude.
I'm definately considering a full time position in this hospital as the prn work isn't really my thing. I thought I would be able to deal with the attitudes, but it's become too much, and I really think the patient suffers.
Anyhow, just wanted to vent. I'm not going to say anything as I thought for sure my mouth would get me in trouble.
Thanks for letting me bend your ears, or eyes in this case.
