  2. Was I in the wrong to try to call 911?
    I would call even if the mother were there saying not to. If I see someone that looks like they may be hurt, I will seek medical attention every single time

  3. New Grad, Urgent Care, Salary Questionable, Need Advice. Should I wait for something
    I hear you. I live in the Chicagoland area and started working 3 months ago at an allergy/asthma office. I had to beg for $14. He wanted to pay me 12. And he only gives me 10 hours a week. I had to...

  4. Male pediatric nurses?
    I've never once considered the idea of a male pediatric nurse as being odd or innapropriate in any way. There are many male pediatricians, so why not a malw nurse? Your desire for pediatrics is...

    I love patient care and patient teaching. My least favorite things: patients and family not understanding there is a process and they get angry and take it out on us. I hate unsafe nurse to patient...

  10. salary for peds office?
    Because I only get 14 an hour at the office. That number is beyond ridiculous. It is what my mom made from the same doctor 25 years ago. That family of doctors is notorious for paying extremely low....

  12. Needing Advice...
    If you could tough it out 3 more months, I would. But if your mental health is suffering too much, it is just my opinion to put your sanity first.

  13. Needing Advice...
    My vote is to put your resume out there. If you had only worked 9 months but NOT have been a CNA there, I would try to tough out 3 months. But you have worked for this hospital for quite a while....

  14. Describe your 10/10 pain. Piggybacking off of recent pain discussions.
    When I ask about a patient's pain level, I'm (for the most part) not doing it to see how bad the pain is. I use it to show me efficacy of pain management meds or techniques. Example: if a patient...

  16. Why do nurses "eat their young"?
    As you stated lateral (and horizontal) violence exists beyond nursing. I know this sounds easier said than done, but it is crucial to your professional growth to develop thick skin. I'm sensitive by...

  17. What do you think of fibromyalgia?
    But no one is denying that one has angina or hypercholemia. Absolutely stress exacerbates symptoms. But they exacerbate symptoms of a condition that already exist. Not the other way around.

  18. What do you think of fibromyalgia?
    EXACTLY! I have interstitial cystitis and the pain can be unbearable. While I'm handing my resident their Norco and it is 5 minutes late they throw a temper tantrum. Meanwhile I'm standing there on...

  19. What do you think of fibromyalgia?
    I find that depression many times builds AFTER the symptoms started. If I had fibromyalgia and was in that pain, AND knew people thought I was faking...I'd be depressed too. I have my own condition...
