Do you like your job? Tell me more about it please! Do you have good support from your staff?
I usually do like my job. It's busy and hectic but I love being a nurse. There are some days when I feel totally overloaded but most are good. I work on a subacute floor in a nursing home. 95% of the patients are discharged home and 5% or so get admitted to a long-term unit. We have G-tubes, respiratory patients, tons of ortho, post-CABG or stent placement or s/p MI. I'll be honest I've never had a trach patient there, but I've only been working for 6 months. We deal with wound vacs, PICC lines, IV antibiotics, meds in all shapes and forms. We receive high ratings from our patient satisfaction surveys and from the state suerveyors, so I'm proud (most of the time) to say I work there. I like seeing a patient go from being bedridden to walking to going home...that's the best thing about working in Rehab. It's a ton of work but it's very rewarding.
