  7. Was I in the wrong to try to call 911?

  9. 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...

    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....

  17. 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.

  18. 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....

  19. 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...

  22. 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.

    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...

  24. 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...
