    I know I'll have a bad day at work when it's a full moon night. I'm an aide in a nursing home and the unit I mostly work on is the nuthouse.(Patients on the call light nonstop and confused residents setting off tab alarms or screaming for the nurse) On full moon night, it's total xxxx. On full moon nights I've worked, the hallway would be lit like a Christmas tree, tab alarms would go off like crazy, residents screaming for attention and playing with the call bells, getting bruises from combatative patients, nobody wants to eat at suppertime, getting trays thrown at me, total care patients puking and xxxxxxx their beds like crazy; total beds time (my favorite-not!) and patients refusing care and showers. Yup, they'd rather sit in a dirty brief and smell like dead fish than get cleaned up.

    We used to have a woman on the "nuthouse" unit who'd call the police on her phone if nobody got her a bedpan or answered her call light at a certain time. She got one aide fired so 2 aides had to be in the room with her during care. She'd call the cops and say the cnas hit her and the nurse poisoned her with meds. She yelled like a banshee if a cna barely touched her during care and nobody liked doing care on her. Her daughter was worse than her; she'd be cussing out the nursing staff for not caring for her mother and would watch the aides near the window. She passed away last year. I wasn't there when she was alive, but the aides told me she was the worst patient on the unit.
