Every so often i have a run of shifts when pt go off on me, or die but only one which was a periarrest. this has happened from the first shifts on my own as a newly qual to now. My ward thinks im jinxed but cope well with these situation(due go loads of experience)
did a late yesterday poorly pt got transfered out and today another poorly, and a non complaint pt delevoped another issue.
i particluary dislike when medic dont know what wrong that is fun. or even better when to my eyes the pt is dieing(just something about them) please can we use the pathway and a medic disagrees and contiues active treatment and the pt still dies hours so sad and feel like im not caring for them.
dont get me wrong if a pt is on the Liverpool pathway, familly know and have been present, or pt has amde wishes known, and they die as long as they have been comfortable not in pain distress im sad at the death but normally feel its better in a way, and contiunning in distress.
