Of doctors. of the floor secretaries, of the techs, the transporters, the lab people, the co-workers, and, of course, SOME of the patients (...not all. )
Why is everyone so rude? Why are some of the nurses so rude? Some of them don't even look at me as a new person on the unit. And it's nothing personal -- they do it to everybody. One charge nurse is such a jerk, it's not even funny. I know they're busy, but is it really that hard to make eye contact and smile? I can do that with very little effort myself ...
I had a doc be so rude to me yesterday while we were doing a central line. "Oh, he was just so stressed," the preceptor said ...but I feel no pity for him -- isn't he making a pretty good wage for what he does? Isn't this HIS chosen field?
And the miserable creepy unit secretary. I walked up behind her and just looked at the chart . .she's like, "Don't touch this while I'm working on it." in such a rude way. THIS is what this unit is like.
Are all units like this? Are there any units with normal human beings on them, with camraderie and/or people with senses of humor who are actually welcoming and kind to new grads?
It COULD be so fun if the staff was composed of descent people. That's how I feel. I do have fun with some of the night staff . . . but I just can't work nights all the time.
