I have been working on a neurology/neurosurgical floor for the last 6 mos., I previously did a year of med-surg before this. Do you find neuro to more stressful then med-surg? I have noticed there are a lot more stressful pt/family issues to deal with on neuro, and there seems to be a lot more back injuries, compared to other floors. Have other people noticed this?
For those that know, how would you compare the stress level of working on neuro compared to working in the ICU?
